This is going to be interesting. Your logs have always been a favourite of mine so I will be following this one too I guess
Thanks Toss, 'preciate it.
If you have not used them already, I really recommend their inks, they are top notch.
How would you compare them to the GW washes though? I make HEAVY use of the washes myself, to the point of actually painting models entirely opposite of normal by starting out at the brightest point I want to be and darkening the model down instead of starting dark and highlighting up. In fact most of my paint jobs since the washes came out are 90% repeated wash layering.
So more pics now too. These are the other new models I have assembled:
(the army is based on these guys as they kick serious ass all around)
: GW impressed me with this kit in that it is stupidly easy to use as either or without the need for magnets of any kind.
: Same again, easy to use as either or without magnets although the way the two bitz fit the model may require a magnet after enough usage.
: This one was a bit trickier. The Necrons aren't magnetized but instead use a pin that goes right through the hull to support the opposite model. They can be easily removed so that the big cannon can be put in place when needed. I decided to keep the hull with the upwards swept arms because I like it the best and it made it FAR easier than trying to magnetize it for something fairly minor.
Beyond the models here I also have 20-30 painted (not by me) Warriors, 4 Destroyers, 2 old style Wraiths, 3 Scarab bases, 6 old style and fugly Immortals, 1 old style Lord, and a Monolith. Of these models it is unlikely that I will be keeping any of them beyond the Warriors and the Lord as the new models for these units are far and away better looking while the Monolith has a rather horrible assembly and paint job on it. The list I am going to build will be something similar to this:
4x 10 Immortals (Tesla Carbine)
5 Canoptek Wraiths
1 Annihilation Barge
1 Doom Scythe
These models with the wargear I will use comes to 1845pts but I will also pick up the models I don't have listed like the Spiders, a new Monolith, etc. I intend to have at least one of every unit in the codex with the exception of a few of the SC's and the uber useless Flayed Ones.
