I built and primmed my Excorsist and Immolator/Rhino. I decided not to magnetize al the lil extra bits for sisters vehicles on this one as i really only do that for my dedicated Rhinos.


3 days to finish em. I think I can do it but most of tomorrow is shot as that is when I dirve 90 mins each way to my 40k store and I got my game for the escalation tournment to finish! If I lose I get 3rd place if I win I get atleast 2nd depending if I can beat my good friend who is waiting for the winner of my game.

I did win best painted army for the League already, now to add the $150 dollar prize to that for 1st place!
9,000 pts Eldar - Alaitoc - 6,500 pts Blood Angels
8,000 pts Imperial Guard - 3,000 pts Tryanids
3,000 pts Sisters of Battle - 4,000 pts Orks
2,000 pts Chaos - 1 Massive Crack Addiction

Wow, I really wish we had leagues with prize pools like that near me, what state/country are you in again?

Im envious of all of these game groups I tell ya...

Oh, also if you start early, Id appreciate ending the tenth as usual if possible instead of early, Im out of town with limited internet access (and no access to my models to see what needs to get done) until the 8th or 9th and i'd still like to vow.

I go to Pops Comics n Games in Sarasota Florida. I know they can afford the entire game prize lot from my sisters army alone since I spent about 700 dollars on it. add in the 17 other people and they were happy to do it. Altho not everyone started a new army like I did.


they hold 40k tournments regularly, but this was their first long (3 month) escalation league. think after nemisis crown we are going to run a LotR escalation league. which the store is happy about because no one has any LotR so will have to buy, so they are willing to put up good prizes.

8,000 pts Imperial Guard - 3,000 pts Tryanids

at the nearest gw to me they hold battle nights every thursday and there is prizes of any model/models of your choice up to a certain value and if you save up your points by not taking anything and win the next games day they add both to gether and you can get something even more expensive

e.g. on guy on battle thursday 3 times in a row(then got thumped soooooooooo bad by someone playing tau ;D) and with all the points he gained by winning thos three games days he got the tau mega battle force not bad huh ;)
It is said a picture says 1000 words i say 1 bullet stops them

I'll post a pic when I can, but I'm pretty much done with my vow. 20 zombies all done, but sadly only one out of two Vypers. My bad  :-[ !

Still, been busy with work and two family funerals this month, so that's my excuse!

Now, where did I put that damned camera....

Posting my failure to complete this month. Blame work. Stupid work.

I finished the commander and got half a razorback done. Haven't lifted a paintbrush in 3 weeks though, apart from a quick test drive of my new foundation red. I'll post pics of the commander later.

I have also failed for the same reason, all I got done was 2 hawks.

Agh, I will finish this Journeyman today.  At some point.  Only too many colours left to go, I wish I didn't need infantry models.



Yay.  Completed.
