Time... Where does it go?

So I find myself once again three weeks from a tournament and a great deal of painting to do. that coupled with the fact that I'm still building my regimental command.

tonight I will be starting on Colonel Soulban and friends. I chose to go with the cadian command box to build my Colonel as it has both the bionic arm holding a power sword and I like the trench coated command model.

Since Soulban is a Straken counts as, I figure some form of bionics is appropriate. I took the time to shave off the cadian style shoulder pads and tonight I will be breaking out the Green stuff to start on his Epualettes, following the recipe here.

Here's what I have so far.

  2. Good luck. They are one of those things that are easier then they look - and I don't consider myself an expert with green stuff at all. My first one I re did a few time before I got the hang of it. Let us know how you go.

  5. Was just thinking about the army list, you would be mad not to have a priest in there. If you are grouping 3 squads together with power weapons with the intention of assaulting having the re-roll to hit on the charge from the priest would be invaluable!

  6. That is a really valid point.

    let's see. If I replace the fourth Lascannon team with a mortar team that should leave me enough points for a Priest.

    I'll have to try that out friday.

    Thanks for the idea Col. Winterborne

    and thanks to everyone else for the support.

    I did a bit of work last night, I'll try to post pictures around lunch time.
