Sorry to seem like a downer but they look like DA. Are you any good with green stuff? I would like to see what you can do with some GS models.

Default Biker Sergeant and replies to comments

Here's the almost finished biker sergeant, wanted to get some half decent pictures before the heat-wave finished and the clouds come back.

I'm ok with GS, I find it easier to use if I have something, only problem is I don't have any GS at the moment, and I can't afford any at the moment. I'm thinking of painting some flames on somewhere on the model, but that will probably when I've got everyone painted up like these two.

Thank you for you kind words. I think the problem with most of these models is that they are my older models, and so I'm trying to improve how they look, but don't have anything to strip them with (and I've e-primed most of them already), here's a couple of pictures to show you what they looked like before:

Sounds cool, I'll have to think about it, I like writing stories

Default Flames on the Biker Sergeant and brief Battle Report

I tried out my army list against a Grey Knight (I hate the Silver Knights!) 5 objectives in total, 1 in the centre and 1 roughly halfway between the centre and each corner (board was only 3ft wide, 4ft long) I think he had Draigo, 5 Terminators, a 7/8 man PA Grey Knight Squad (1 Psycannon/Incinerator) and a 7 man PA Grey Knight Squad (1 Psycannon/Incinerator) with Rhino. Everyone had Psybolts (i think that's what they're called)

The Bikers and Tactical Squad sped forward, their combined firepower wiping out the 7/8 man Grey Knight Squad on turn 1. The Grey Knights stun the Razorback
My combat squad with Multi-melta and 4 normal marines blew up the Rhino turn 2, the marine with Psycannon/Incinerator dying. Draigo is reduced to 2 wounds and 1 terminator is killed by my Tactical Squad/Biker Squad.
Turn 2/3 Draigo left the Terminators and went after my Bikers, leaving them with the sergeant, a meltagun-biker, and a wounded Attack Bike. The Terminators wiped out the Tactical Squad in combat, who had already lost 2 of their battle brothers to shooting.
The Razorback lost its Heavy Flamer and was immbolised on turn 2/3.
Turn 3/4 Vulkan/Orpheus and the other combat squad came out of the Razorback the turn after, their meltagun, combi-melta, heavy flamer and 3 bolt pistols killing 2. The Terminators killed 4 Marines after Orpheus and Co. assaulted them, but Orpheus killed the 2 left.

we had 1 objective each but didn't get to finish (and I was about to melt Draigo )
He had the 6 Grey Knights in PA (on the objective) and the wounded Draigo left.
I had my Multi-melta combat squad (on the objective), the Combat Squad Sergeant, Orpheus/Vulkan, and my depleted Bike Squad (thanks to being reminded that bikes flee 3D6 not 2D6)
All in all, it was a good game, and I loved using Orpheus - all those Melta re-rolls (at 1 point I rolled triple 1's for my Bike Squad, which quickly became a 3, 5 and 6). I don't really think I could've done anything differently, the only thing that could have helped would have been a bigger board, where I could take advantage of my superior mobility.
