New years eve and my last post of 2012. I started the year with a nebulos Chaos army built around a core of Fallen Angels and I'm ending it with almost 50 Deathwing, the full 3rd Company, some of the Assault Company, 2200 points of Vanilla Marines, a start on an Eldar Corsair Army, some of my Wyld 5th Company and plans to build a scratch Titan. Lots more to come. I'm looking forward to the new DA Codex coming in a few weeks, so far I've no plans on adding anything from the Codex untill I've read it back to front and inside out. As a basis for next year I'm looking to round out The Glorious 1000 to 2500 with possibly a camo'ed tactical squad, got 1 not doing anything atm, my Corsairs are my next project, with the Titan getting done when I find an AT-ST, weapons from Forge World and I need a base for my Mortis Dread.

So once again I've been ebuying, I was looking for a Rqazorback for my The Glourious 1000 and I saw this one on ebay and thought,"well The Lions Blades are a 2nd Founding Chapter they'd have older stuff," so I put a bid on this puppy and stuck it out till i won it.

Paul Harris I also found a Leman Russ Battle Cannon from the clubs bits box, thinking of knocking a turret up to use as a Vindicator. Tuesday at 18:36 via mobile · Like #
Michael Tebby Pretty nice paint job, tbh. Just add some orange to contrast and it'd look epic :D:D Tuesday at 20:39 · Like #

Michael Tebby Well do it again, but this time get some of that spray they use on charcoal to make it stick and use that :D:D

Michael Tebby Best bone method I find; paint it grey. Let it dry. Paint it bleached bone. let it dry. wash it with sepia. let it dry. add transfers. Tuesday at 21:38 · Edited · Like #
Paul Harris Got karak stone that i'll be using as a base, then dry brushing over that I think. That's been my usual method up now. Tuesday at 21:40 via mobile · Like

I then broke the paint out. I didn't give this one a yellow undercoat as I thought I could get away with using the red as my basecoat. I tried to keep away from the engines and the wing ball joint as whoever had done these first had done a good job, and being lazy I'm not going to do anything I can don't have to. I painted most of the body Blazing Orange, leaving a few areas that I was going to paint with the Karak Stone as I'd run out of Kommando Kharki.

So nearly there with my counts as Bjørn The Fell Handed, just waiting for a couple of things from Ebay to finish it off. Next up is the metal Dreadnought that I'll be making into a Mortis for the 3rd Company. As of now I can use it as a point eating double twin linked Las Cannon. I also picked up 2 Sentinel Auto Cannons and with the 2 I've already got from Froge World could make a crap looking Quad gun out of this lot to go with my resin injection block defensive walls.
I saw the picture of the new Mourngul from Forge World and I couldn't help feeling that I've seen this thing before, didn't take me long to work it out, it's from the rather warped video for the Aphex Twins "Come To Daddy". Don't believe me, watch the video for yourself, but it should come with an age warning this one.

Stuff from Facebook not too sure how good this guy is yet, up to this post he'd been telling everyone the DA was December along side The Hobbit
reading through ravenwing book. ravenwing might not get jetbikes because the technology Is still lost but there's a land speeder called dark shrouds, the deathshourd land speeders which use relics from the tower of angels attached to power generators to project a veil of darkness ahead of there squadron to protect there units. dark talons armed hurricane bolters and land speeders with plasma cannons all feature early on also nephilim fighters. The new units in the ravenwing book are black knights they ride bikes and have plasma weapons and power hammers with a ravens beak on the back they are sammeal's elite and are almost ready to join the deathwing also vengance class speeders with plasma cannons. Flyers seem to be dark talons which have hurricane bolters and nephilim fighters. The book is fantastic.
new SM flyer (Raven Claw) has massive amounts of fire power, imagine a 40k ersion of the A10 thunderbolt. this thing eats the enemy up. absolutely awesome. im going to be inesting in a few myself
