To repel the Red Waaagh!

Played a very enjoyable game of planet strike this last weekend, as part of the Red Waaagh campaign. The heroic men of the Praetorian 23rd successfully defended a command bunker and as such will allow all of their knight allies to scout during the next battle!
Here a ratling sniper overlooks the killing field in front of the trench network.
5 objectives are scattered around the main defensive zone.
man the interceptor weaponry!
An Ogryn squad does their part to defend the trenches. Their ripper guns would later be excellent for killing Orks!
Father Mathias seems to see something wrong with one of the wyrdvane psykers.... wonder what it could be?
a very blurry shot of my reserves.

all told I had a company command squad with banner, vox, astropath and officer of the fleet.
a knight errant
two infantry platoons, one mounted in chimeras to act as reserve and on to man the trenches.
a banewolf 
3 ratlings
3 ogryn
a veteran squad 
1 primaris psyker 
1 priest 
1 commisar 
2 units of 5 wyrdvanes.

Demo time

Got around to adding another tank to the armoured company. 
I may touch up the weathering as I think it came out a little to even but otherwise I am happy with the result.

Ogryn auxilia part 1

So Ogryn are pretty cool...
Ogryns need someone to tell em who they should be crumpin...
so I thought a priest would fit in nicely. 
Look at the happy family...

Goodbye marbo.

Sadly it seems that guardsman marbo is on his way out. 

And after I properly converted a model...

Inquisitor Praetus Rosny

Thought I'd drop an update on my Coteaz stand in.

All I have left to do is base the old man.

And for grins here is his buddy
Haven't got a good name for him yet. Next up I will begin work on my henchmen squads.

Captain Eldan Branshil III

I started out with one of Victoria Lambs rough rider models and subbed in the sabre from the baneblade commander. After a little green stuff gap filling I started work on the eppelettes.I also decided that this guy needed a suitable base to make him stand out as my commander!
For the eppelettes I used the basic technique that I learned on Col. Gravis' blog a few years back. Starting with rough lumps and shaping them with a sharpe edge.
After that I hit him with a little paint and while he isn't yet finished I felt like showing off.
Hope you enjoy,

Holy content batman!

Two posts in one day? Madness!Thought I'd share some hobby progress. Here is my "counts as" Coteaz. 

And here is a special project. My newest officer for the Praetorian XXIII 
I will post updates as they appear.

LVO aftermath

AJust starting to get back into the groove of life after my excursion to Vegas for the big tourney. It was an enjoyable weekend of getting my face smashed in. (Got tabled by sisters..) I met some interesting new people blew some money on roulette and spent entirely too much money on food!
Here we can see a pair of titans discussing the finer points of proper handbag design. If you look closely you can see a wrecked rhino by the smaller guys right foot.

I would say my biggest pitfall of the weekend was my lack of reliable scoring units. I brought dark angel bikes with drop pod wolves and despite the major threats to opponents on turn 1&2 I would be pretty well finished by turn 4-5. 
This brought into focus just how much I rely on having tons of scoring power from the IG. Next time I will likely drop the pod wolves (Ah that was punny) and take some guardsmen to sure up my backfield. 

Till next time.

Daemon for a friend

A few months ago my buddy asked me for help building him a daemon prince for his LVO list. Here is what resulted. 
I started with an old balrog kit and added bits and bobs as well as a bit of jewlers chain to created the desired effect
My personal favorite bit is the rotting jaw.
My version of the black mace... Yes I realize it's no longer a mace.
And the final paint job by Frowny face 

If you want a closer look at this beast you'll have to find it at the Las Vegas open this weekend.

How time gets away from us...

It has been a crazy few months here and not much time has been made for posting to this blog. Now I find myself a week away from the Los Vegas Open and nearly finished with a dark angels army to take to the desert. 

I've spent very little time on the praetorians and have all but abandoned them to stare out at me from the display shelf. This is due partially to burnout and partially to the feeling that a new book is just around the corner and the desire is to not put too much work into something that may not exist in a few months.

And this I have painted up a ravenwing army to go along with my own new addition.
