Hello fellow warseers, i have decided finally to post in this section, having scrolled through so many beautiful armies, and also since im at uni i am taking more time painting my armies (I normally have 1000's of points done in a few weeks.

Normally I am an advocate of painting what you have fully before buying more, but i've lost it and bought the start of my guard. The list I will be buying and painting is as follows:

HQ
Command HQ: Senior officer with Power weapon, laspistol, 2 Veterns, 1 medic, 1 standard bearer with company banner. 2 Guardsmen, 1 with Grenade launcher, 1 with Flamer
Commisar with laspistol, power weapon. Priest with power weapon, CCW, Sanctioned Psycher with Laspistol, CCW.
WHole squad has carapace armour, including all characters.
218
Chimera transport with Multilaser, heavy bolter, improved comms, smoke, Extra armour 113

TROOPS
3 X 8 Stormtroopers (grenadiers) with 2 plasma guns
3 Chimeras with Multilaser, Heavy bolter, Smoke, Extra armour. 193X 3

FAST ATTACK
Sentinel with lascannon 55

HEAVY SUPPORT
Demolisher with lascannon,Extra armour, Smoke, Heavy flamers. 183
2 X Leman russ with 3 Heavy bolters, smoke, Extra armour, Heavy stubber 176

Ok so these are my first test models for my Cadian 8th army. Im really not sure how to make the stormtroopers look good..any suggestions on camo schemes to break up the armour?? also energy feed colour im not sure on, nor his green visor

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg291/JamesMc_67/PC140008.jpg

Im gonna use the chimera as my command one, hence the improved comms and officer who is ordering "FIRE!!!!" i think :-)

lookin really nice tange
jw are the smokies supposed to go there if not nice idea i like it

Mad Larkin UK
14-12-2007, 20:32
I dont know where the smokes are supposed to go, but i thought that they wouldnt put them in a position that would stop the turret turning, which putting them on top of the hull would have.

Also i got a shoddy cast and had to fill it up with green stuff.

So ive managed to get a few squads completely done. Heres my leman russ, which is going to have the heavy stubber removed cause its a waste of points.

Ive started work on a hellhound and Demolisher, both converted using baneblade parts on their standard chassis.

I like them both, but i need to do a bit of work on the demolisher before i start painting:

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg291/JamesMc_67/P1280088.jpg

The list i am building towards is this :

HQ

4 guardsmen, Vetern with Flag, Meltagun 21

Fire support with 3 autocannons, sharpshooters 105

ELITES
3 X 6 veterns, including vet sarge, 1 plasma gun, 1 lascannon 88X3

TROOPS
3X8 grenadiers with 2 plasmaguns each 100X3

FAST ATTACK
Hellhound with Track guards smoke extra armour 133

HEAVY SUPPORT
2 X leman russ with 3 heavy bolters, Extra armour, smoke, Track guards
Dozer blade 2X 178

Demolisher with Lascannon, plasma cannons, Extra armour, Smoke, Dozer blade 208

which leaves me with 68 points left.

And finally i purchased a Techpriest and a few tech servitors, as 5th edition rumours point to them being alot more useful:

Consider that Hellhound design nicked. ;) That's a great army and I love the scheme! Keep it up!

Some very nice stuff here. I love the Hellhound conversion. The FW Greater Demon is fierce.
And in particular, I love the paint job on the psycher. He has a strong, wasted, ruined, ragged, powerful look to him. Very evocative.

I really love that techpriest! I'm borrowing that Hellhound idea, I have the heavy flamers from the baneblade sponsoons in my bitbox, they should do fine as well.
