Default Catachan Platoon Command

I think I need to clean them up but this is my first attempt at a complete squad in almost 20 years so I am "happy" with them. I like the converted LT and am proud of how it came out seamless.

Default Rebuffing the Sentinels

After some great advice I decided to work on the Sentinels again, trying to remove all the mold lines I could find. I'm still working on them and it requires a lot of re-painting but the finished product will be worth it. I think the Hulls came out pretty good....






Now back to the party

It's gonna look like I'm always criticising... but... there are gaps in the basing. Are they consistent with the rest of the army?

My tip would be to glue the sand down before undercoating. that way the undercoat helps stick the sand down and you can paint it first, getting all that drybrushing out of the way.

On the actual plus side, awesome paint job.

Default First 1500 point Game Report

Well today I got my first taste of 40k...and I'm not too sure how it went but I'm pretty sure I got smashed! 6-3 was the final score after 5 turns, I held my objective with 5 remaining guardsmen. I will edit more after I get some food!

Default Army Update

I thought I would post my current list since it's been a while since I've updated this thing. Hopefully I will have some painting done this month and be able to update it with pictures.

Straken
Harker
Marbo
Nork
3 Chimeras
2 Leman Russ
1 Vendetta/Valkyrie
60 Infantry
3 snipers
3 Female Grenade Launchers
2 Autocannons
1 Missile Launcher
1 Heavy Bolter
6 Mortars
3 Ogryns

Goal: Turn the Catachans into a Mech Machine! I realized I'm not going to win on fluff so I might go Steel Legion Mech and paint the Catachans Orange for Penal Legions...but my heart just might break. And the fact that I bought about 2500 points of CSM still in the boxes is something that took my mind off the goal of being old school Catachan Devils for life!

Well things have been a little crazy, between getting frustrated with cheese ball players, buying way to much stuff and starting to love the Steel Legion more than the Catachans I went bozo and started moving towards a Mech army. Here is what I'm sitting on at the moment:

3 LRBT
3 Vendettas
3 Chimeras
3 Manticores
1 Hellhound
30 Steel Legion Troops
3 Steel Legion Lascannons
3 Steel Legion Heavy Bolters
40 Catachans
3 Sentinels
Straken
Marbo
Harker
Nork
Yarrick
Lots of special weapon teams: Meltas, Plasmas, Snipers, Heavy Flamers

I need to get my ass painting, I wanted a full painted army for a tournament this weekend but I doubt it will happen, oh well! At least I didn't give it up like I was going to a few days ago!
