So, here's the major update of my Army Diary! Had to fix my camera and pose everything on the table. Actually I painted and modeled a lot since my last update but I didn't really finish a lot...
In the meanwhile I played a Doubles Tournament at the GW Frenzy in Amsterdam. It was my first tournament and I liked it very much. We didn't do bad in the games actually: one draw, one solid victory and one massacre! We had a lot of fun and we didn't screw up
In a couple of weeks there's a 1500p tournament at my LGS in which I'll participate. Will be fun!
OK, let's start with my new purchases:
At the Frenzy I bought these at the Forge World stand: a left arm Autocannon and the Ultramarines Brass Etch symbols. The Brass Etch stuff is amazing; so detailed and so beautiful. In a while I'll pimp up my vehicles and Terminators with these.
I tried them on a Razorback:
Also I bought a box of DA Veterans. I love these models and would like to have them in my army. Probably I'll paint them Ultramarines and use them as Sternguard Veterans.
Another DA model I bought is the SC Librarian. I was looking for a power armored SM Librarian but I liked this the best. I did my best to model the base in a nice way:
I still have to do the banner. It's probably best to pin it where the backpack and the shoulderpad touch. Otherwise it will fall off on my way to the LGS. And I have to decide which one to take: the original one or the Sicarius banner. Your opinion on this please?
Here's a conversion I'm working on: the DCCW with Heavy Flamer. I've used this upgrade a lot on my dread but always had to proxy. Now for the tournament I wanna have it wysiwyg. So I chopped off the Stormbolter and took some CSM flamer and a 'lamp' part of a landspeeder:
Did this conversion yesterday so the paint job is not finished yet...
So here are the frequently requested army shots
I only posed the painted and half painted models. What's not on the pics: TDA Chaplain, 6 Terminators, DA Vets, DA libby, LS Storm w/scouts and about 5 marines.
Some stuff is not finished (drop pod, all IC's, Assault Terminators, one dread) and some stuff not even properly started (Landraider, TFC Techmarine).
For my next tournament I intend to use the Landraider, TFC, Drop Pod and Assault Terminators so those are the models I'll be focusing on the next 3 weeks. Wish me luck!
C&C welcome off course!
