Awesome!!! Glad that the Knight Incantor is doing the good work for you. I've yet to use mine or my stormcast yet.

Good to hear about the Gloomspite Gitz, I cannot wait to see how you tackle those goblins ;D.

Looking forward to the Hellblasters :).

Thanks MyeníTal!  :)

Big apologies for not responding sooner.  First I was busy in work, then on my extra days off, I got sick.   :P

But Iíve managed to shake it off and get back to work.  Iíve now largely completed the hellblasters, but as the bases are still drying and are therefore looking a little blobby, Iíll save the pics until tomorrow.  But if anyoneís interested anyway, here they are.

In the meantime, thereís a bad moon on the rise:



Tomorrow the Gloomspite Gitz arrive.  Canít wait!  8)

So I finally finished the Hellblasters:








Weeks behind schedule but better late than never.  I do have right hand shoulder emblems to add but thatís a small job.

Theyíre really nice Cap and well worth the wait. Really nice contrast of colours and I think that the simple base really helps bring out the qualities of the miniatures. Top job!

Love the colours Cap. I agree with Loosh that the simple bases really accentuate the models.

Thanks guys!  I often have doubts and worries about the bases (and the rest of them), so your positive feedback really means a lot to me. :)

The marines are really starting to come together.  The goal with them at the moment is to build a fully stocked demi-company, with supporting characters and vehicles.  Even though my gaming scene is off 40k at the moment, if you can believe that! 

Still, itís handy to have at least one 40k army, and it is a very nice painting project to do.  I definitely think that the marines are going better than the Overlords.  ;D

Also, I had a bit of an impulsive urge over the weekend, and bought...these!



Got them from a friend of mine, for a steal!  Especially considering that theyíre ready painted.  Iíve been interested in the Skaven for years, and itís also handy to have an actual painted army for tournaments and so forth.

Awesome job on those Hell blasters, Calamity, they look great! ;D Nice treasure trove of ratmen you've stumbled across too!

Great stuff! Nice catch on the ratzz. I have a nice size plague monk army. Still needs some assembly and paint bit slowly getting there.

So cool that youíve picked up some rats. I hope you enjoy painting them, I think theyíre amazing fun. Some of the best kits around.

Thanks MyeníTal!  :)

Iím always a bit worried about the final result of the paint jobs I do but no major mess ups so far.  ;D

Nice!  Iíll have to check that out!  :)

Yeah Iíve head that theyíre very easy to put together and paint, which is just how I like it!  ;D

Also, more news!  Iíve made a proper start on the grots:



Skragrott the Loonking, a fungoid cave shaman and 20 stabbas, plus the Skull Pass icon.  Not a bad start!  ;D

Great start, Calamity! Nice to see the Moonclan on the rise! Is Moonclan going to be your sole focus? Or are you thinking about branching into Gloomspite Builds as well? Fungoid Shaman also looks really cool.

Keep us updated ;D.

Thanks MyeníTal! :)

At the moment, the Moonclan is my sole focus, but I do plan to eventually have a little bit of everything; spider fang, troggoths and a gargant.  Theyíll probably be my sole destruction army overall.

Also, Iíve made some more!



And Iíve also started painting my Intercepters:



Taking it slow, to do it right.  ;D

Great work on the Inceptors, they look brilliant, the Golden Lions scheme really looks cool on the jump pack units, makes them look like golden angels descending upon the foe.

Awesome, I'm branching into two different paths for the Moonclans: All Moonclan and All Squigs. I thought about making a troggoth herd, but I've decided against it.

I could use that money to jump on the Dark Oath when they eventually get released ;) :P.

Ah, the Darkoath!  Hereís hoping they get something sometime soon!  :D

Quick update, made further progress with the Interceptors:





Iím taking them nice and slow, to make sure they turn out right. 

And after they arrived on Monday, I immediately attached the Ďdevastator trianglesí to the Hellblasters:



Sergeantís shoulder pad needs slight touching up but otherwise, theyíre finished!  Also pictured, the half finished Interceptor bases.

Finally, I actually bought more Primaris marines ages ago, but they still remain unopened.  Except for these Intercessors, who were made like, a year and a half ago:



Some parts are not yet attached.  I also bought some extra grenade launchers, and the plan is to use these guys to bump up the two squads to ten men.

Just one thing; one of them has slight glue damage to his hip (long story). Hopefully that can be covered up. :P

Anyway, check out my fully painted marine force so far:

That gold looks so smooth and the blue really compliments it. Now get the Grote going, need me some inspiration.

Hell yeah gobbos and Celestial Lions!

One unit a week is a hell of a pace :) I've just counted up my output for the year and I was pretty proud with 107 models. Split down that's roughly two models a week :S
Check out my Eldar, Exodites, Corsairs and Croneworlders :)

Celestial Lions looking exemplary, Calamity. Only thing I could suggest at this point is drilling out the bolters, but that's more of a preference thing than anything.

Cannot wait to see you tackle some goblins :).

Thanks for your words of support guys.  :)

Iíve managed to finish an Interceptor.  Wait, did I say finish?  Because actually itís not quite finished:







Iíve still to paint the purity seal.  And also, I made a bit of an error.  I didnít know that superglue was the recommended type for attaching them to their flying bases. 

After struggling for over half an hour I checked my phone and yep, Iíve been doing it wrong.  And now thereís glue damage on the paint job.  Itís all on the base and the little bit were the base tip is supposed to go. :P

Hopefully itíll all be easy to cover up once I actually attach them.  Thatíll require some new superglue.

Iíve also just assembled an easy build Redemptor Dreadnaught and a limited edition, but Iím too tired to post photos at the moment.  Will do asap.  ;D

I will also get around to the grots asap.  Iím really looking forward to painting them but since Iíve got a 40k tournament coming up soon the marines are the priority for the moment.  Such is the way of things.  ::)

That inceptor looks brilliant Cap!

The additional bits of blue really bring out the model. I think the balance is superb. Hopefully any glue damage will be easily cleaned up.

Great work Cap!
