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.
