Chaos WIP!!!

So I continued work on one of my three Blight Drones...after it's been sitting idle since July or so.  I have the body mostly done now, just need to work on the base, as well as the flying stand, both of which will have my water effect ooze that I used on the Demon Prince of Nurgle I did.  Should be pretty snazzy when I am done.  There was a tirade by me originally as well, but that has been removed because I feel petty for posting it.  Sorry for anyone who read it, that was somewhat out of character for me.  I may have been drinking....heavily.  Anyways, check out below and whatnot.

Aaargh2D2 and some charity info!

So, this weekend I didn't really get any of what I wanted accomplished, but I did manage do do a few things at least.  This model is Aaargh2D2, made by Scibor, and when I purchased all my "Egyptian" weapons from them, they were nice enough to send me this model for free!  I read a post by Goatboy in which he talked about how he didn't have any models for himself to paint at the time, and that he was in a rut, so I made a comment about how I like to switch it up every now and then, and just paint something random for the fun of it.  So after saying that, I realized that I hadn't painted anything for the hell of it in a while, and painted this fun model up.  Anyways, check out below for some info on what is shaping out to be an awesome charity, as well as another Ork model I am working on, and a story about having Ogre strength and airbrushes.

Contemptors, oh how I love thee!

So, as the picture above shows, I have finished Contemptors number 2 and 3 (so named for the markings on their shoulder and knees, a 2 and a 3 respectively).  All three have different poses, and will look even more sexy once I have all the different weapon arms painted... all 19 different ones.  Yeah, that will be fun.   Anyways, check below for more pictures of numbers 2 and 3, as well as a few shots of terrain and my table as it stands (or lays I guess).

Terrain update

So I will start this out by pointing out that my post with this as a WIP, as well as my Draigo counts as, got nods from both Santa Cruz Warhammer and From The Warp, so thanks guys for noticing!  The tower is now mostly done, and although I had a very rough weekend, I managed to at least knock out some very basic terrain as well.  Hopefully this week I'll manage to get to my FLGS and buy the last terrain I will need so I can make some more headway on this table, but if not I guess I'll just have to wait until payday...FML.  Anyway, check out below for a few more pics of some terrain I half-assed this weekend!

Librarian fixed and a WIP update

So I decided I wasn't happy with how I had the Librarian's sword, so I rummaged through my bits box and found a Staff that Kromlech had sent to me for free when I bought the Jetbikes off of them.  I like this look a lot more, as it is different from everything else in the army, yet it still fits the overall design.  Anyways, below you will find another shot of the Librarian, my Contemptor Dread arm collection, and my built (minus heads, of course) purifier squads.

Draigo and friends!

So I now have my counts-as Draigo done, and he is the beauty pictured above!  I really like the bits I got from Scibor, as they really help to add that Egyptian feel to the army.  I also worked on some of the other models in my soon to be built army, and even my ruined tower.  However, I ended up with a Diablo III Beta invite, so my progress has been slowed somewhat.  Anyhow, check below for even more pics of what I have put together so far.

My first Contemptor Dread, and Table part 2

So my table is coming along now at a slower pace.  I have the basic layout done, and before I can do much more, I need to get all the terrain secured on the table.  With that said, I have a continuation of the step-by-step for the board, some pictures of more terrain I am working on for it, as well as some pictures of how my first Contemptor Dread is coming along!

Table update time!

Okay, so I have most of materials for this table now, and I started the basic construction of it yesterday.  It's going to be loosely themed around Prospero, so I am going with a kind of modern Cairo look to it, with some magical doodads around every here and there.  It's going to be ruined to fit in with right after the Space Puppies bombed the shit out of the place.  I figured I would do this as a step by step process for all of you faithful readers to follow along with!

Small birthday update!

So as you can see here, my wonderful wife got me an excellent display case from Ikea!  At only $65, it is the best value out there.  I was very prompt in putting it together and filling it up, and I honestly might go buy a second one next weekend because it didn't hold as many models as I though (probably because of the titans and super heavies, but oh well).  I also got more than enough money from friends and family to buy a new airbrush and tank, so that was ordered last night so my painting should actually get somewhere these days!  Click on though to see close ups of each shelf, as well as some other things I forgot to include in my last post.

Finally getting started!

So I am now finally getting under way with this new army.  Most of my stuff has come in, but I am still waiting for the weapons from Scibor (my FLGS told me they couldn't get them for some reason...three weeks after I placed the order, so I had to order direct, which sucks by the way) as well as some pieces I decided to just get directly from Forge World instead of eBay, mostly because none of what I needed was on eBay at the moment.  Anyways, read on for more of how this project is evolving!
