Yesterday I posted about the color mixing guide for Citadel colors and got an immediate response claiming this to be a hoax. After looking into my colors I realized that I do not have all base colors to begin my own tests. So I ask you:
On the news: I won the conversion contest for september- Wohooo! Thanks to all of my readers for voting. I will give back to the community soon- stay tuned! Another post I found and think is worth checking out is this one on Nesbet Miniatures on mixing colors.
I started painting on the Inquisitor since I have to get him ready for a tournament this weekend. He still misses a base and I have to clean up some details but for only two hours of work I am rather satisfied.
After looking through my supplies for some time I settled on the models I wanted to use for my death cult assassins. I based my decision on the one original model GW offers us and the fact that I wanted cheap plastic.
Men we got our selves some beatings! It was fun most of the times anyhow I must admit and I had two intesive days of gaming, discussing and spending tons of swiss cash. I also managed to meet some guys which I only knew from the internet yet and it is always fun to connect those two realms.
So I made it and got my Legio Custodes tournament ready in time (3:30 AM to be precise) for the UMS Agram 2011 (Zagreb/Croatia) tournament. So I got up at 6:00 Am again, drove 250km to the south crossing slovenia by traveling there and got me two days with fellow hobby friends form abroad.
After the conversion work is done mostly (some greenstuff here and there need to be done still) I started painting. I decided to do the vehicles first since the infantry still needs finishing touches modelwise.
As I only own Rhinos and no Razorbacks I had to come up with an idea for a replacement. I tried the mini-turret from Oldcrow models but sadly it was too small - although very cool. So I took a look at the sprues I had lying around and found the Dreadnought missile launcher.
As I do not own Dreadnought arms with autocannons but wanted to field them, I needed a solution. An affordable solution- say without Forgeworld stamp on it. At first I thought about using Cadian weapon teams or Aegis defense line systems but all of them had one flaw...a lot of work and still not half cheap.
This is the start of my army project of 1750 points of Legio Custodes. I will play them with the Grey Knights codex and plan to have finished them by 16.th of july this year. That leaves me 20 days- totally doable I think.
Infinty excurs. A lot of people at my local gaming club jumped the bandwagon and decided to start with Infinity (form Corvus Belli) after seeing the Beats of War Infinity week special. For me this is the perfect excuse to continue my Yu Jing army.
Continuing the work on my first scout unit. Base colors are applied over a primer of Armypainter Bone Spray. The eyes are already detailed although I am not 100% satisfied. Maybe I will go over them again.
I started work on the first scout unit for my Grim Angels Space Marine Army. I bought the models second hand on the internet and beheaded them to put on helmets since I really can't stand the way GW modeled their faces.
Welcome to part 3 of my tournament report. The first three matches lead me into the finals and I was looking forward to the match afterall it was cleat that I would meet selfproclaimed Mr.40k Austria himself on the field of battle.
Schlachthaus means Slaughter house in English in case you were wondering and when thinking of a 40k tournament this even made sense in a way. Four games at 1750 points with 40 paticipants promised a nice day and so I took my Angry Marines from the shelf once more. After all the Black Templar FAQ demands for (angry) playtesting.
