Im so sorry that it seems to have been over a month since i have posted here. Been super busy with work so haven't had the time to do anything.

Anyways, I had the battle with the Necrons many weeks ago now. Unfortunately I lost, it was a Maelstrom game it came down to my final round of shooting for me to get a draw, sadly from 8 dice not a single one hit when i needed 4's. I could have cried.

This was his deployment.


My deployment.


End of the first turn.


End of the third turn. I managed to take out the Stalker and the other vehicle thing, outlanked a Melta Dominion Squad in an Immolator, this helped loads, needed to remove that Stalker, having BS5 Necrons is nasty. Came in on my second turn and did what they needed to do, unfortunately once it his third turn started he smoked the Immolator and Dominions. He also managed to trash my other Immolator he also trashed one of my my Exorcists too.




Final shot at the end of the game. It came down do that Battle Sister squad in front of the Monolith needing to nuke his Phaeron -think thats what it was- to the right of the Monolith, but i couldn't roll to hit at all.


All in all my deployment cost me the most, since I wasn't expecting him to deploy pretty much in the corner, it meant that the Retribbutors and Exorcist I had deployed on the left hand side after my first turn were largely ineffectual since they couldn't see anything to shoot, so I had to waste pretty much two turns moving them. So having 2/3 of my Heavy hitters absent I just didn't have the fire power needed up against the 7th Ed Necron book, because my god those things are insanely resilient now. I thought my Coven stuff could take a beating but 'Crons now give new meaning to War of Attrition, that and I couldn't make my Faith rolls, i had Laud Hailers, Simlucrums, Priests to get more chances and get my faith off more reliably and often but I couldn't do it, failed them all bar one on a Battle Sister squad.


And here is a photo of my assembly back log.

It's just my 40k stuff, got my 30k stuff sitting on top of my Wardrobe so no pictures I'm afraid. So in that picture we have a Talos, Trueborn -yes im using the Archon model as my Truborn-, I know thats a Venom box but it actually has sprues for plastic Wracks, Gargoyles, and the old DE Battleforce box since i brought my local GW's stock of them once GW stopped doing them, but ive condensed the sprues into a single box, since Ive already assembled the Reavers and Raiders, so that means ive got 20 Warriors and 20 Wyches sitting there and lastly an actual Venom. Won't even bother listing all the stuff I've built but not yet painted.

Oh and just to warn you all, once pre-orders go up this plog will be taking a certain Mechanical path.

Oh aye, I've seen your backlog. Heck it can't even be called a backlog it's that big. Being digested in Sarlacc Pit would probably be quicker than trying to get all your stuff done. What amazes me is you seem to add to it.

Like always lately, apologies, works been long and tiring, hard to drum up the energy to get things done when I can just relax and play a Visual Novel.

Anyway, time to notch up some images.

Been slowly building up my Grotesques, got 8 now. 2 are the stock GW ones - you have no idea how much I hate that it's single pose -, and the remaining 6 are sorta converted, 5 are pretty much Rat Orgres spruced up with Coven bits. The 8th one is favourite.

[IMG][/IMG]

This is the 8th one. Basically I want 3 sets of Grotesques, so a full squad per set - including Abberation -, the stock GW ones, the Rat Orgres and what are meant to be Space Marine Grotesques. Not the best idea and someone could probably do it much better than I, but still ill be doing it.



Just need a Space Wolf Termie Shoulder Pad, I'd also like a more Wolf looking head but for now the Rat Orgres one will do.

And this is my stand in Archoness with Agoniser and Soul Trap. Going to redo the armour and I am yet to settle on skin colour yet.

Well I finally picked up my first box of 40k Ad Mech, stuff today. Brought the Rangers/Vanguard box. Still unopened as of yet because I've found, I prefer assembling stuff when I have a nice little line of stuff that I can just sit and build for hours. And since I'm taking the planned parenting approach to my Mechanicus and buying a single box at a time building towards my 1k list it will be a while before I get to building them.

A little more progress on my Dark Eldar, finally pretty much finished my Blasterborn, I'm still debating on the helmet, and need to do its base, and the gun needs painting but otherwise I'm happy.



I've also gotten to painting up my Cronos now, I'm happy with the rusted look on its shell. The syphon thing, I don't know if you can see it properly in the photos but I've tried to use 3 colours, first time trying something like that. The Vortex, im still unsure off though I do need to touch up the rim stuff. I'm not sold on the green pipes either, I really like that it contrasts the rest of the model, but I'm not sure about the Green, it just doesn't seem to fit, I don't think blue would work, red maybe, yellow would be same as the Green I think. I might just give them a wash of Earthshade to try and dull it and make them look dirty. I think the dirty look could help since it would make it fit in a bit more. Thoughts?






Can't wait to get my Talos painted up similar, the scheme is really growing on me and can't wait to get more of my army painted up like that. I love that it seems totally different to the paint schemes of the majority of Dark Eldar schemes people have, sure I'm probably not the best person to pull it off but hey, I've got a scheme I'm finally happy with.

Sorry for letting this lapse of late, work is painful still but I've got a week off next week where I'm doing nothing but Warhammer so help me god.

So I'll give an update. I've sold my Dark Eldar, largely because of space issues, they have found a good home so I'm pleased.

Here's a sneak peak shot of what I'll be posting come next week. It has begun.

Well today has been the first day of my week off work. So hobbying I have been.

So first up, got a delivery yesterday which has been sitting in soak for today. I'll be getting to glueing all week.



I've also begun painting my 40k Mechanicum. I've developed two radically different WiP Paint Schemes which I'm currently undecided upon.

First scheme.



I used Ryza from the painting guide as a base but instead of going into Tau Ochre from Jokero Orange, I've gone with Jokero and then up to Troll Slayer, it's much more vibrant.

Second scheme.




Totally different to the first scheme.

Thoughts?

I was finally able to get some hobbying done today for the first time in what feels like months.

Here's my Dominous for my Cult Mechanicus, it's still in progress but I don't think I've got much left to do. Not sure on the yellow trim though so any comments on that would be much appreciated. I'm still undecided on the silver, I think I should add another metallic colour on its trim, maybe bronze?
