Apocalypse How?

I took part in the Apoc game on Saturday down at the club. Turnout was a little disappointing, but we made the most of those that did turn up.

I took the Deathwing and was forced into joining the bad guys! I think that Successionist streak is taking hold! Nothing unusual in the list: three Deathwing squads two of which went in the Land raiders, a ravenwing combat squad with the attack bike, and the old faithful, The Ancient's Assault Force! Damn i love these guys!

i opted to keep everything off board to begin bringing them on in turn two, which took for ever, but was worth the wait. We had to finish at the end of turn 3 but i once again managed to destroy a baneblade! i took another down to 1 structure point! the only other thing of note i acheived was to take out the weapon arms of a Warhound!

I failed to get my stupid camera (!) to take any pictures, so curteousy of Chris (Angryhatter) i present to you some of my lists awesomeness!

Two Trolls with some paint on.

well, as promised, I have pictures of some Trolls that I painted!

These were painted as a result of losing to Luke in a challenge, but to be honest, I'm glad - I actually enjoyed painting them!


Now, I don't consider them finished, but for now I'm not going to add any more detail to the Bouncer, mainly because I don't want to spoil them. Essentially I'm at the current limit of my ability, so the plan is to practice more and progress my skill before going back and making improvements.

I think that the next one will have to be one of the Dire Trolls!

oh, and on a final note, Shane, you best watch out. I seem to have a flair for painting cooked ham:

Er, shouldn't you be painting?

...well, yes...but...

If I have the choice between painting and assembling a model i'll choose the latter every day! especially since I've been waiting to put together my Dire Troll Bomber for a month!

A quick update to prove that I am painting

Morning guys, just thought I'd post up proof that I'm not just putting off the painting.

Early stages still, just the basecoats on him. glad I waited for the correct colours to be honest.

I think this is my first post where i'm actually posting something I painted.

This is what you get for declaring your pair!

No, its nothing rude! Shame on you!

As a result of losing to Luke at the club, I now have two weeks to paint these two warbeasts. It was originally just one warbeast in two weeks, but we did a deal to give me time to get the correct P3 paints (which he kindly got for me, thank you Luke), so I volunteered to make it two warbeasts as a compromise.

So, for the next two weeks, I need to paint an Impaler and a Bouncer. Wish me luck, this is new territory people!

Don't worry, I'll give you fair warning of paint on models so you can avoid the obvious shock!
