I tried to pencil it around, but I'm not sure if it's just me, but I had some serious trouble trying to make parallel lines around a curved surface so I gave up and free handed them on and just cleaned as I went.

I have been pretty packed with work and trying to be social so there isn't much to update with





This is about it. I have been thinking that since I am starting back the chaos army, I might make a new thread just for them, as it will keep things cleaner for it. I will keep this one up for other projects and the guard. I have a lot of terrain on the way that I will have to assemble up plus some pieces for the jungle boards to go.

Why all the rage against flyers?:grin:
I can't seem to find a way to take them down. I hate flyers because even with the average anti tank weapons at my disposal, I can't ever kill the bastards, yet mine drop to a stray lascannon all the time.



But this is the end result that I was after. Crashed vendetta boom!

The baneblade finally got assembled and coat upon coat of paint and this is the final product. I need to wash the front lights and then glaze them, but its where I think I can't push myself any further at this stage.




This camera really doesn't sell the smaller models off well :(



For now that's all I have to show. I am putting small bits and pieces in place to make a simple modular table for my mates and me so pics will be up of that when it comes around!

Hi OMGiDuane,
Your Yarrick photo looks like it needs more light. Of course not every camera can handle macro photography all that well. But a good first place to start is with more light.

Hi OMGiDuane,

Yeah I tend to take the photos just before bed and its dark outside which gives off less bouncing light in the room, but I'm always too lazy for the lamp out either. Sorry dude! I will be trying to borrow a mates good camera that I used to use for early posts in this thread and that might help as well with capturing some of the work.

I have been getting bored of building chaos marines (5500 points so far out of what seems like NOWHERE) so I got to assembling a few things that fit the new style of my guard.
Mech guard has always been a big push to me from other guard players but I've been against it, loving the feel of massed infantry holding their own against steel giants and soldiers 9 foot tall armored with what might as well be a full bunker.


The command chimera, the commander is magnetised and the hatch it pinned so it can be put down when the commander isn't showing, basically just to represent which is the HQ during games.

The leman russ squadron I won't be painting any of these til I can procure a decent airbrush and someone with the skills and know how to really help me through that phase. I am hoping to emulate a lot of what I see in the Imperial Armor Masterclass books.



And the mighty plasma cannon sentinels as back up and marine busting! The reason that they are carrying tank treads is that I had the idea in my head that these units will all work together and mutually support in the battlefield and after to get the best out of their respective tasks. And so they all carry gear for the russes and some other bits pieces to give the front runner tanks less worry.


And the full mechanised division together.


I am really happy with the results, I'm glad I had some of the brass etchings laying around, but I'll need more if I continue down this path in the future with other vehicles, which just might be the go as I'm loving the character it gives them.

So...
Been a very long time since I've set foot in this thread, or any of my others. The truth is I've been very busy with a new job that threw me so far in the deep end, coupled with studying nights meant I had maybe one free hour a day and I spent that preparing to sleep for the next day. That is well over now and I've been getting work done but just had to track down a program to shrink my photos down so I didn't spend three decades trying to upload (that aussie internet!).
Anyways I'll lead off with this.


I came third in a small tournament on the other side of the city. I went there last year with the traitor guard and came 7th, and being that I got there based purely off my comp score, I decided that I would try and ride the comp train a little a bit to get up the top. So without a drake or demon prince I went along.

All my practice games I had leading up to it were losses. Some horribly bad, some were close games. But I was feeling very UN-optimistic about the list by the time I got to the tournament.
My list was as follows:
Typhus with a 4 man mark of nurgle terminator squad. All armed with axes (cos I HATEEEEEEE terminators) and flamers (cos anti horde is something my army doesn't cover well I thought)
Riding in a land raider with dirge caster and dozers
10 marines 2 melta in rhino with dozer x3
15 zombies
2 obliterators with mark of nurgle
2 vindicators with shields
3 terminators with combi meltas and axes

Having gone up with 2 mates of mine, I didn't expect to face either of them but of course first game calls up a mate of mine with an imperial fist list that I found kind of unchallenging...


Deployment as follows.

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3703_zpsc8a40275.jpg

Marines drop down to lure Typhus out, it works, and lucky because he did nothing else this game and needed a few heads on his belt.

I then spent the rest of the game three-stooging it and trying to kill just 3 centurions. They took 2 vindicator shells which promptly scattered off a useless amount, 2 drop squads scattered too far, one going back to reserve and the other to a piece of LOS blocking terrain... Ugh



I was attempting to get very drunk for this tournament to cope with my losses, and also to make the games more interesting.


After 3-4 rounds of 6 melta guns and plasma spam, the last centurion fell.

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3712_zps6472e1d3.jpg
I ended up losing, the game type was big guns never tire, and I thought centurions were heavies, apparently not. I lost all three heavies, but held more objectives. Still forcing a loss. Although minor. Damn centurions :mad:

Final pose photo!

Next game! Against my most hated and most feared army. NIDS!



I don't have a proper set up picture of the deployment but this will do. Tyrant did what I figured he would and got pretty far but I got lucky and the opponent deployed badly and probably picked his targets wrong.
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3716_zpseeddea77.jpg Typhus hops out and eats a bunch of nids with no effort.
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3717_zpsf1a840cb.jpg Trygon appears and offers the marines a distracting target, which they quickly take off the board thanks to melta gun spam.
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3718_zps8ddeec69.jpg

Vindicator shell lands square on the warriors, that were out in the open and instantly turned to mush.

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3722_zpsdfd8300f.jpg

He did sculpt his own bastion which is a little bit cool I must admit.



Typhus hasn't eaten enough and takes down a tervigon, a bunch of gaunts and half a tyrannofex in combat. Game pretty much all came down to this but ended before a winner was determined.

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3726_zps801cb0ed.jpg

And the drop terminators melta'd the biovores then proceeded their way up the bastion to somehow beat up nid warriors in combat. I was amazed at their vigor.
Game 2 was a minor win, I could of done better but our time was short so I didn't move up marines to help finish with the assault :(

Game three!

Death guard VS Salamanders! (another mates army)
I don't know why my land raider was rushing up the map, I really don't but it apparently worked and survived.

Drop dread behind me failed to do anything good to the rhinos chasing first blood and therefor gave me first blood when they both blasted meltaguns back in retaliation.

Vindicator must have opened up a rhino, giving Typhus and his pals some very chewy playtoys.
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3731_zpsc8376e6c.jpg

Both drop squads came down on his thunderfires, removing his biggest threat once the terminators are dealt with.


Pretty sure this did nothing either...
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3734_zps9ba3c84f.jpg Second last turn

In a sly effort to hold my objective away from me, while not claiming his own (terminators eat scouts in combat) but a lucky lascannon made it through and exploded the dirty dark green fools and their loyalist ideals.

At this stage there was 3-5 marines left against my entire army minus typhus I believe and the obliterators. It was a pretty clear tabling.
The next game though was gunna be a real tough one...

GAME FOUR!!!!!!!

Necrons Vs death guard. I was really packing in it, having won 2 games out of three, with no major losses, I knew I was going to face something tough. And I heard of this necron list roaming around.

The reason for my placement was as such.
1) no doomscythe so no multiple hits on units grouped up.
2) no blasts in the army.
3) keeping all my firepower close.
4) his command barge cannot sweep over a unit if it can't land after and this prevented such a thing.

A second shot before the carnage.

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3745_zps56b59864.jpg
And a third for good measure.
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3746_zpsb955b8d6.jpg
Last one I think.
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3747_zps12ecc7c9.jpg


I must have been too carried away to take enough photos, but my first turn went as good as they probably could. Sinking a ghost ark and some guys inside, and then pummeling another ark, but the 2+ to ignore shaken and stunned is a bit messed up.
Oblits came down right where I wanted and as I knew he was gunna bring the lord and their barges over they were ready to go. I also sank a vindicator shell into the unit of necrons and dropped them enough to force a test which they failed and ended up only millimeters from the board edge!


Using my rhino here to try and give that vindicator a hulldown result the best I can as my 5+ cover saves had already done amazing and I wanted/needed these two machines alive if I was gunna win.

Look at the brooding in those fellas, they want pain and they got it bad...

Terminators came down and struck hard into a vehicle and gave it a bit of trouble, but not enough and then the wraiths exacted their vengeance wiping the squad before I could get an attack in...
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3753_zpsa4de3e93.jpg

The oblits ended up dropping the first barge, and to stay alive from the incomming barrage of plasma the lord dropped to the ground. I made the foolhearty mistake of charging him :( Causing him to win combat and act as normal next turn. STUPID!


The rhino tries to rush for the objective, being scouring, I had some of the lower end ones on my side and I knew this was going to be a very far uphill battle. But he was still a great opponent and the luck went back and forth between us.

Last shot. My phone died after this as my mates are selfish and unplugged it to put theirs in sometime during the night.

The last game was against guard, an army I am VERY used to facing and I had such a surefire win but I deployed and screwed up my first turn on myself, allowing my entire flank to get eaten by a squad of meganobs and warboss (yes allied with guard), his army was beautiful and he ran it soft and we had a lot of fun also. I just wish I had some photos of it.

Now will be a random spam of things I've been up to and my army in completion.
I have about 40+ terminators I realised the other day, with a 7000+ army of chaos just waiting to go and I'm constantly adding to it. I have a serious problem that I never thought I'd be that guy but here I am. I do intend to stretch out to a few legions that always have peaked my interest, such as iron warriors, alpha legion and word bearers plus some black legion just for kicks since I have the abaddon(is it?) model that's from the fight with loken.


Black legion rhino top.


Plugs for my ears, worn with pride through the tournament. Represent your legion or perish!


Rhino wrecked markers. Something more gruesome than just flipping them over when they're gone.


And the master himself, Typhus.


Action shot of Typhus and his retinue about to cut down some foolish salamanders.

The warmaster himself. I am not big on fluff, nor would I call myself a great painter, but I hope I can do this fella some justice. I have been waiting for this model for the entirety of the horus series!


Thinking of going for the seagreen style of sons of horus.


Bomb squigs

Spawn, but luckily I avoided every challenge with typhus that I could and this didn't happen.


Demon prince for the boon table.
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3782_zps3d70a3b3.jpg

Sentinel wrecked markers.


A modular (slightly) city siege table I've been in the plan for months with mates over and its finally coming together!

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3785_zpsab5aa76c.jpg
My work was throwing out glass cabinets and I decided to take them all as they are great for hobby.


Iron warrior land raider for the next legion!
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3787_zps9399fc78.jpg


Mauler! Finished mostly except for the magma cutters as I never use him. Just love the model.

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/teh_used/OMGITSDUANE-PC/IMG_3788_zps05643d6a.jpg

Nurgle demon prince. I really hate that the varnish didn't keep any of the gloss I was so fond of from the blood and teeth. Oh well.

And that is everything I feel worth mentioning I have done in the past 8 months or so. I feel like there should be more, but there will be much more to come now that I'm all set up! Stay tuned everyone!

Finished my horus, although looking at photos, he could use some serious work on the finer things. The eyes are a little lopsided but I am thrilled with the face and cape the most. Oh and the base was a few hours alone.

Wow, that's a heck of an update. Looks like you've been busy!

I think your Warmaster turned out pretty well. As you said it could use some more fine detail work, but the overall effect is good. Generally, my complaint would be less that he's a little walleyed and more that there isn't enough gradation in the green of his armor.
