Deathmaster Snikch

Holy Crap it’s been a long time since I’ve posted!  Alrighty; new year, new commitment.  I didn’t hit 2 units a week, although I DO think I hit over 65 units painted for last year.  I should have just been happy with 1 unit a week.  :p  So anyways, here we go again:  1 unit per week commitment.  Currently I’m working on 120 rats (4 units), 3 Rat Ogres, a Bone Breaker w/Skaven Warlord, a Warp Lightning canon, 5 assault marines, a dreadnought, a vindicator, 5 sanguinary guard, 5 Blood Crushers, Skulltaker on a Juggernaut, 3 weapons teams, a Warlock engineer, and a chaos dwarf sorcerer on a Lammasu… 16 units altogether.  This will probably be similar to when I was working on all my daemons; a lot of “slow” progress, but I’ll finish several units over the course of a few weeks.

Deathmaster Snikch was pretty easy.  Granted I don’t do any wild advanced paint schemes, but for the most part he was all one color with a few embellishments here and there.  I don’t find assassins to be very valid in the new Skaven book; the couple of times that I have used them, they’ve been pretty worthless…

I’m fairly excited about the new Skaven units coming out; I’ll most likely get one of each of the new items so I can have two Hell Pit Abominations, Plague Claw Catapults, Warp Lightning canons, etc.  I think the Doom Flayer in particular looks very good.  I’m also excited at the prospect of getting a Storm Raven in February…

Skaven Jezzails

This unit is not as big as it should be.  I gets off some good shots, but it doesn’t kill enough to cause a panic check.  I need to up it to at least 5, if not more in case one or two miss their shots.  They are super-powerful, though.  Strength 6 with armour piercing and magic is insane!  Definitely a valuable unit.

Painted a little last night and finished my Rhino, Prince Sigvald, and my Khorne Battle Standard Bearer.  numbers updated below.

Painted Warriors of Chaos Army

This is the army that I’ve had the longest, and it’s STILL not finished!  :/  Plus, with 8th edition coming out, it looks like I may need to look into having units 10 wide… urgh.  I’ve got some converted Dragon Ogres in here, and you’ll also notice the Khorne Bloodletters, which are perfect substitutes for Forsaken.  I’m painting a lord on Behemoth this week, and I still have 5 Chaos Knights, Prince Sigvald, 3 Chaos Ogres, Throgg the Troll King, a Khorne Exalted Champion, and a Chaos Exalted Champion on Daemon Mount.  Really, not a whole lot, but a lot of it is mounted which can be a pain.

I’m still on track to finish my painting for the week (4 units, yo), but I’m not at work tomorrow, so you’ll get the next update on Monday.  Have a great weekend!

Flesh Hounds of Khorne

Finished my Dragon Ogres Yesterday, and I should finish my Fire Warriors today. I also played a great game last night of Skaven vs Ogres. My opponent and I were both fielding units that we had never used before, so it was a bit of a learning experience.

Again, Daemons are super easy to paint. These flesh hounds didn’t take a whole lot of effort and they still came out looking pretty good. 😀

Bloodcrusher of Khorne

hmmm… I’m not sure if this picture thing is working…

Anywho, this is a Bloodcrusher of Khorne (if you can see it). Surprisingly, he didn’t actually take all that long to do since he was mostly red. I made a ton of progress last night. I’m nearly finished with 12 of my Firewarriors and 6 Pathfinders, and on the cusp of finishing my converted Vermin Lord. I also finished a hill, constructed a Dragon Ogre, and added a few more bits to my Plague Claw Catapult. Tonight I’m going to take some WiP photos, so hopefully I’ll have them up tomorrow or the next day…

Skulltaker

Daemon Friday, yo.  😀  Skulltaker is a pretty nasty dude.  4+ killing blow will get anyone’s attention.  He was actually pretty easy to paint, as most of the daemons were.  I’m looking forward to painting some pink horrors soon…

Started building a Plagueclaw Catapult last night for my Skaven army… it’s still a work in progress, but I at least have a base to build off of now…  Happy Friday!

Bloodletters of Khorne

I finally got some new pictures taken last night, so here is my first Daemon unit for display.  I won the old Fantasy Daemon spearhead for only $100, so I got a great deal on a new army and book, which probably would have cost me about $300 if I had gotten it all individually.  What I love about Daemons is that they are SO easy to paint.  Give ’em a base coat and then pick out the details and give them a wash.  Done!  I did all of my daemons (after they were assembled) in less than two weeks, which is pretty freakin fast.

I finished painting my now-magnetized crisis suits yesterday, and I also finished my Stealth suits last night (I just need to flock the stealth suit bases).  The stealth suits were WAY too easy… I felt like I should do more, but they’re supposed to be super-low profile, so less is more, I guess…
