So what are you all gonna be doing hobby-wise?

I'm probably going to finish building my penitent engine and my Stormlord (although I might still go with Shadowsword at the last minute).

Eh, gonna be garbling up gurgles playing my death guard horde (fluffy nothing but DG and 1 HQ 2k force)

Work on more models, perhaps add a different color to some of the DG's rather then the mess of greens they are on sunday, stock up on bits to make my ork warbike rocket sledders.

Put some more cash into the hobby, and maybe bolster my 40k chaos daemons project with more skeleton nurgling bases. (five skelies per base). Ask the locals if they would accept wolves as seekers of slaanesh, if they had stinger+pincer tails made from hormagaunt talon arms.

A few things...

Hi! Say, Doctor Hellbeast, is the Penitent Engine hard to put together? I want some, but someone warned me it's an advanced model, and I'm all thumbs:(

This weekend I'm going to take inventory of my Sisters of Battle models and plan what to paint to make my next 500 pts. Oh, and I'll be hanging around the internet 40K forums all the time, lol!

You all have great weekends!

All I have to do is finnish up one soulgrinder and ten Plaguebearers to complete my 1850pts. Daemon force.

Today is the day!

Hey, why don't we all post in this thread when the weekend is over, to confirm or denie that we succeeded in our evil plans?:)

Hi, Francois.

It wasn't the easiest of kits. There was a fair amount of filing to sort out the mold lines. I only have to pin and attach the arms now and I'm done. The main difficulty with this kit is attaching the legs as the hole on the legs is considerably larger in diameter than the hip pins it attaches to. I used green stuff to bulk up around the pins and pushed the legs on, trimming any protruding green stuff off with a sharp blade, accompanied by copious amounts of superglue and it's nice and solid now. It's a lovely kit if you want to put the time into it. Nice and substantial with a pleasing weight to it. Pick one up and have a go. You know you want to. ;)

Lets see...this weekend i wont get much done on the hobby but i will def go into my local GW and tell the manager off for something. Usually itís something like the price of models or how clean his shelves are, but itís all in jest as i love him really. Then I'll give his lowly staffer a back rub while he paints. Then Iíll get told to go away by the miserable vets who squat at the painting tables unable to summon even the slightest spark of cheerfulness because of a lifetime of ineptitude resulting in them finding safety and security behind a shell of hate and spiteful anger towards those around them. After shaking my head in disappointment and a cheerful quip i will probably depart.

I'm angling for a date with this girl I know (ok fine, itís an ex girlfriend of mine and I'm crawling back cos itís been a while since I've had any. Happy now?) and normally this would mean i leave the GW at home cos, lets be honest, itís not always the best conversation device for getting the cream, but this girl is well into sci-fi and likes the concept of 40k if nothing else so maybe i will have a conversation on it. She's more into Bablon5 and Doctor Who (yeah i know but like I say...itís been a while) so not sure how I'll fit 40k into that but hay, I like a challenge.

Have a great weekend all!!! :D

I'm OK at building them. I just have trouble ever getting around to ever painting anything. :cries:

Hope you enjoy the kit.

I'm building a small SOB force for my girlfriend (she likes the way they look ;)) so I started with the penitent engine. The rest will all seem easy by comparison, I hope. :)

Well I'll probably be getting up early to watch the ANZAC day dawn parade to commemorate all the servicemen that died on 25th April 1915 at Gallipoli Peninsula and all those who have laid down their lives serving my country since.

Then I'll be back into painting my Dark Angel librarian and maybe I'll get around to those uni projects I need to hand in next friday ;)

Attempting to continue and finish (Need for a game on monday night) a drop pod.

Also going to try to get 2 rhino's completed to finish off my battle company, 10 more assault marines which will be 2 flamers 2 plasma pistols, sgt with thunderhammer, and the other 5 will be assorted sgt's as i need some variety such as one with just bolt pistol/chain sword, plasa pistol and chain sword etc.

Final item i'm going to try for completion is a Captain with chain sword and bolt pistol.
Though i doubt i'll finish them all this weekend but i can hope.

I'm going to try and get the last two models finished for my Slaanesh Marines which I need for a tournament next weekend. That, and two plasma guns and a pair of dirge casters.

After that, it's more Orks!

Basing lots of stuff- 1 platoon of guardsmen, and a squad of rough riders if they're finished in time, and a short company of 1:72 WW2 russians.

If that gets done, then finishing the weathering of assorted tanks.

And trying to get hold of Hostels on the Isle of Skye to book the holidays with the girls from dancng, for a week of walking, climbing, dancing and flirting- wargaming is all well and good, but it's neither physical exercise, or a good way to spend time with the opposite sex!

I've got 10 zombies (to be used for Dark Heresy) that I put together the other night to be painted. Plus a few IG that I converted into Arbites enforcers and a converted genestealer hybrid that I want to finish off.

I'm not sure I'll get to all of them, but I'll try to do some.

Although if it's a girl the Mrs will train them in the art of shopping as soon as they can walk. :D

Thanks... A few years ago, my daughter was very "tomboy" and I almost was able to turn her to the side of "goodness and light", but something switched on and she's not into minis... She's still not completely gone over to the "darkside", but they do have cookies, so it won't be long I fear... ;)

Hopefully assembling and priming my tanks (which have yet to get here...).

I don't have kids myself, but I spent last Saturday afternoon teaching a friend's little boy and girl to paint miniatures. The lad painted a skeleton, the lass painted a mummy (both from Heroquest). They've both picked up more miniatures since - the boy has some space marines, the girl has some chaos demons.

I've always liked the cut of her jib. :)

Hmmmm, let's see. Ummmmm. need to finish off some Flesh hounds, 4 of them for my unit of 10 in CD's. I know people dont like them but i have found them to be rather effective, their decent charge distance, and the 30 attacks on the charge at I5 and S5 is rather effective.

If by some divine miracle i get them done ill start on some more tactical squads for my raptors Space Marines. I only have 2 tac. squads at 1500 which, TBH isnt a great number, especially when only 1 of those 2 are made to move.

that's my plan, have a good weekend all. And i agree with the post back on the 1st page after the weekend we should post up to see how successful we all were with our goals.

Nice work on recruiting two new hobbyists there, Sooty.
Their mum told me about the new models they'd got. She'd taken them to their local model shop on the way home from school, and the chap who runs it gave them some free Space Marines and a couple of White Dwarfs. I'm looking forward to seeing how they turn out. I might have to pretend to be surprised when they tell me.


You converted your Apex Twins models up yet? :)
Ah, that was really just theoretical maundering. I do have a Rose and a Billie but, as most of my miniature-making is for RPGs rather than wargaming, making a conversion of them as a Doomsday Weapon would be nice but not particularly useful. Sort of unfortunate.

I did have an interesting idea the other day for making a sinister psychic baby in a mobile incubator, though.

Onidan
24-04-2009, 16:14
Hm, I most likely will convert the rest of my plastic hammerers and maybe paint some more of my tactical marines.

Problem is a) weather is too nice to be inside painting b) I only have time to paint/convert on sunday anyway...

Well, I see what I get done ^^

Work on more models, perhaps add a different color to some of the DG's rather then the mess of greens they are on sunday, stock up on bits to make my ork warbike rocket sledders.

Put some more cash into the hobby, and maybe bolster my 40k chaos daemons project with more skeleton nurgling bases. (five skelies per base). Ask the locals if they would accept wolves as seekers of slaanesh, if they had stinger+pincer tails made from hormagaunt talon arms.

A few things...

1: Death guard won and lost a game, annihilated a tyranid 1750 full of warriors, some stealers and dakkafexes with a wingrant and dakkarant, my dakkapredator eliminated a score of gaunts, finished off some big stuff and really did good. The lost game was being wiped off the bord, doing more damage to him then my nurgles suffered in the previous game. I didnt let him pull off the lash+pie plate combination, his terminators won the game and I forgot warptime. (We both forgot a bunch I think) Chaos vs chaos.

2: I got called out to play on dirtbikes today, hopefully I wont end up bruised and thrown off like last time. (Damn bike was way too tall, couldnt touch the ground, fella who rides it normally is 6" taller then me) that ended bad, hope this time is better lol...

3: I held off on buying anything, and I couldnt find bits for my orks. Sadly, its all mail order and will do that later. If I'm not too sore after the riding...

4: I used daemons on saturday as well in a 2v2, dice didnt like me very much. 5 horrible mishaps out of 7 squad deep strikes, only one hit its mark and that one faces snikrot and his crew the very turn after their arrival. Daemon prince died in a mishap, and a bloodthirster got lashed away twice after being "mishapped to the furthest table corner. I really should learn my lesson and just run with 3 princes and 2 GD's instead of lots of small guys.

I even managed a start of the space marine stuff, ive got an apothercary done for a command squad and have the rest primed knarloc green.

Hoping to complete them by the weekend then next weekend do another phase of minis.

Have to keep churning them out so ic an finish this demi marine chapter. Then i can make scenery properly then another army

@satanslandlady, you should greenstuff a dressing gown on your demonprincess, and add fluffy slippers. it would be what the... when people see it, and would win you games.

OMG FLUFFY SLIPPERS! She so needs shoes. I can't understand why she's on tiptoes barefoot like she's wearing heels. I wanted to do some greenstuff work on her but was really stumped as to what to do. I've contemplated sewing something for her rather than sculpting.

I greenstuffed and used plyers and wire cutters on my greater daemon of slaanesh. His hand that points out now is "the shocker" :evilgrin:

I was helping a friend with his deck (you know the porch in the backyard. made of wood? :D Usually not covered? ).

Me skateboarding... that'd be a riot. There'd be a youtube of that bucket of me failing miserably up in five seconds or less if I tried to skateboard again. :) Though my balance is much better than it used to be.

Easy. She's a Dancer.

As know to my pain, many kinds of dancing result in you spending far too long on your toes, in very thin or non-existent shoes...

Thankfully, I don't have to go beyond demi-pointe, but that still hurts. 2 Beat Pas basques for the Sword dance.

This weekend, I will paint the 3 Grotz and Runtherd that are undercoated and therefore usable. I will also finish off the first of my big 30man Boyz squads so that I can stop looking like such a prick when I deploy a ton of unpainted models.

These seem like realistic goals. :D

I've been able to work on my Land Raider this week, so it will probably done before the weekend, so it looks like something "new" for me... :)

A couple choices:

- Play a game with my son (not likely as he's been invited over to a friend's)
- Paint his LR Crusader we finished putting together
- Work on some of his BT special characters (Emperor's Champ, Marshall, Chaplain, etc.)
- Do my Command Squad (partially painted already)
- Put some Terminators together (BT and mine)
- Get out some Ork Nobz and paint them! :)

We'll see what actually gets done...

Started painting my giant for my orc and goblin army about 30 min ago. Its the metal giant with the cowering imperial type so if i screw it up least i can strip it. Going to be basic anyway as I am trying to get an entire army done in a month or two. Once whole army is varnished and based etc can go back and touch everything up if im so inclined, but I imagine I shall just move onto the next project.

My weekend will hopefully be each of the following.
1) Finish converting my remaining guardsmen and drop by my LGS to pick up my new guard codex (unless the swine flu gets me first).
2) Homework, homework, and more homework.......then tutoring sessions to help me with homework.
3) Come up with the nerve to talk to my hot neighbor, maybe take the next step as well to take her out for a lunch/dinner/or amusement park.

*work on painting Sophie. I primed her during the week after removing her belts XD. Now she's completely nakie for the time being. Will work on figuring out her costume later.
*Mb actually start painting the oh... 30 bloodletters sitting around
*Work on painting my pleasure seeker

This week the plans are more guardsmen. (probably tommorrow and Saturday. Maybe an early start tonight)

go to the game store, and win with new high powered guard.

Hopefully my codex will come in...

Hrm...throw an extra assault cannon I found on an extra terminator I have.
Possibily build my remaining Vindicators.
Paint. Although I'll probably end up painting non-GW stuff.
Try to pry myself away from my PS3 to accomplish everything above...

Regarding the hobby definetely finish another 6-8 guardsmen to paint and arm them (Flamers/GL/ML) and start painting a HWFSS (3xAC).Then some detail touches on my PAGK and assembly/basecoat the FW GKD and a LR.
And some 30 mkinutes to find and put together all my WE models since in May WE models are first priority (basecoating/painting) .

Pick up Aun'va from the FLGS, and debate buying a new sentinal or saving that money for GD Baltimore.

Advise a friend starting a guard army to get more heavy weapons squads, a valkerye, and a sentinal with the new codex, then put them together for him.

Continue to paint up my Tau in Covenant colors

Work more hours so I can afford more plastic crack

Tomorrow afternoon I plan to head out to Halifax for a night of painting, gaming, BBQ and win with a couple friends of mine and my brother. Saturday will be an exciting day of purchasing a copy of the new guard book and a valkyrie, as well as assembling said valkyrie, painting and hopefully some small skirmish gaming on the lovely tables at GW Halifax (anyone from the area, 500-1000pt games?).

It should be a wonderful fun-filled weekend of delightful nerddom. I'm hoping to just chill out, hang out with some good folks, and take a load off.

Currently building an 'Iron Saint' Shadowsword to kill the inevitable pesky warhound titan at an apocalypse game on Saturday. Got a baneblade, Doomhammer and 2.5k of Daemons to help me finish the job :D. Maybe get a copy of Codex Imp Guard and a Valkyrie to paint (pin-up girl nose art ftw :p)

Watch some boxing and then to finish off a Dissertation Proposal.

So all in all a packed weekend.

Just paint her in "body paint"? No actual outfit, but paint something on her that covers her up? Tastefully... of course! :) This would be extremely hard for me to make look good, but you may have the talent to pull it off!

Just a thought!

Likely plan:

Saturday - do some more conversion work on Stormlord/Doomhammer/Banehammer for renegade guard (forgeworld stuff having arrived) and pick up IG codex. Spend rest of day sat in pub.
Sunday - (recover) - then spend bl**dy ages removing imperial eagles from couple of boxes of IG and about another 40 lasguns (for mutant "conscripts"). Get bored and sit in pub
Monday (got to love Bank holidays) - rummage around bits box for suitable "chaos" looking base model for Chekov conversion.

Saturday is carpet cleaning day (from last rented house- renting a carpet cleaning machine which should be 'a' kind of fun?)

Sunday Morning I am going to repair the card warhound (see avatar) which having built from lackof's templates took a beating in my recent house move, (one ankle broken, other leg broken, one gun broken) before having dinner with our ex landlords.

Monday I shall see, I very much suspect that with no internet (still, heavens preserve me) it will be an excellent opportunity to get some more AoBR Orks built, or paint some veterans for a campaign game on Wednesday.
hope you all have good and fun weekends! :)

I got the BT LR Crusader black primed last night... It's 90% done! :)

I almost finished my LR. I just need to christen it and flat spray it.

Still haven't decided what the main project will be...

For some reason, I thought the new releases were next weekend, so now a trip to the FLGS to pick up my IG Codex and Valkyrie kit will be added to the list... :)

Iīll probably meet my game quota for this month this weekend allready as I invited some friends over for a BBQ and lotsa beer. Some of them play WH, so a few games should present themselves ^^

On the other hand that means my plog will be annother weekend un-updated as I wonīt be able to paint anything or continue my hammerer unit...

Well I don't really know how to make Slaanesh tasteful :p but I will consider at least tattooing her. I've done it on my daemonettes modeling them after the ones in the codex.

Corrode
01-05-2009, 18:51
Tattooing can look quite cool, and it fits rather well with Slaanesh - there's pleasure and pain involved and then something nice and aesthetic afterwards. :D

Turns out I'll also be able to get a game in tomorrow against my friend's Marines. I'm currently 3-0 against him so here's hoping that continues. (and yes, that means I've beaten a sum total of 1 other person, why do I keep that WLD thing in my sig when I suck so hard? :\)

01-05-2009, 19:29
Saturday: Paint 6 Chaos Warriors; possibly get some kind of codex for laidback reading (Imperial Guard or Nids, most likely).

Sunday: Go to the local club to try to get some games off.. Was gonna attend a small FB tourney there, but as some of my models have gone MIA, I will try to play 40k, and hope I can play against something that isn't Eldar. After that, try to paint a rhino (or at least start on it).

Well since I won't be able to jump on and post an update on how my weekend went, I figured I would say how each of the the things I planned turned out.

1) I finished converting my squads of guardsmen! and I have a new digital camera to try out for them!
2) Got my new IG codex :) already blazing away at new lists for my IG!! WOO!!
3) Well so here I came up with the courage to talk to my hot neighbor, at least to try and get to know her a bit. I noticed that she was walking her dog, and that she had a pair of big sunglasses that covered a lot of her face. I asked her if I could join her on her walk with my dog as well, she says "sure, even dogs need to socialize."

While we were strolling, I said "So -insert her name- do you work or go to school in the area?"

She gives me this puzzled look and says "I'm sorry, my name is -her actual name-. You must be mistaking me for my sister......"

I felt soooo embarrassed to have not noticed the different facial features, cause of the damn sunglasses. Similar hair, body type, and clothing too!! UGH!

So to end it short, I put my foot in my mouth and ended the talk short after walking my dog. I went home and worked on cutting up some IG special weapons :(

The joy of mistaking identity.....

04-05-2009, 06:57
This weekend I bought more csm and assembled it all with a couple conversions: 7 plague marines, 11 standard csm, 5 DA vets converted to chaos chosen, a dreadnought, a land raider , 5 terminators, and a greater demon of nurgle. Maybe next weekend I'll paint some, at least the dreadnought,

Ouch. Just ouch. I feel for you, old chap.

Although it sounds like an easy mistake to make. Just bide your time. You'll find a way to turn this around to your advantage.

It'll give you a good "IN" with the correct sister if you play it right, by playing the lovable slapstick guy who made a funny mistake. Just get her name right, for Christ's sake. :D

----------------------

As for my weekend goals I did paint some of Sophie. I did a base coat on her skin and painted some on her wings. I'm still actually trying to smooth out there I removed her belts. My bf's roomate said her butt kinda looked like she has cellulite >.< I've since corrected that and was also trying to smooth out her stomach and especially her crotch. Can't have that looking strange...

Oh and I bought the book "Daemon World" by Ben Counter. Full of Daemonie goodness. I'm over half way done with it already.

Corrode
04-05-2009, 18:59
Lordofwar, hard luck but don't feel too bad about it. You now have an 'in' with the sister - unless she's a total bitch she's not going to think you're stupid, she's just going to think it's amusing/cute and now you have something to break the ice next time you see her. Think positive!

I got the Grotz done, they're just waiting for bases now (which they'll get this weekend). I didn't get around to the Orks since I managed to leave my DA Green in Bristol. That said, I've decided to build a unit of Kommandos out of the dodgy old Stormboy models, since I hate those plastic/metal hybrids. Instead I'll use the plastic bodies that I have spare and make Kommandos. I tried a test camo scheme out (red/browns so a kind of autumn camo, partly inspired by that scene at the end of Ali G Indahouse) and it worked ok, so I think I'll pick up Snikrot on Tuesday. :D

Oh, and I won the game. 3-1 on objectives, he had three models left and I only lost one squad and a Looted Wagon.

Starting off the this weekend's goals...
WIN! Yes, yes off to a tournament I go. It's a doubles tournament. I got asked last minute because my bf's brother canceled on him. I decided to be mean and make him beg me to go :p because I wanted to go in the first place but he wanted to go with his brother -_-. Now I wish I hadn't been painting Sophie this whole time and was painting what I actually need to take :cries: I can't win appearance unless I'd been painting these past 3 weeks straight. Oh well wish me luck anyways. Might be able to win fluff story ^-^

Oh and I'm using my winnings from the last tournament I was in to get another soul grinder today! Now I'll have two ^-^

Captain Micha
08-05-2009, 14:48
Tonight.... painting and assembling guardsmen... once I finish that? Hopefully at some point this weekend I'll be playing in a Star Wars Saga campaign. Most likely will be gaming Sunday.

My goals, finish the guardsmen so I have plenty of extras or the option to field pure Infantry at 1500, and to win my next 40k games.

NealSmith
08-05-2009, 15:14
Last night I decided to revamp my SM list for 1,500 point game(s) next weekend. I've decided to add some terminators and either a terminator captain or a terminator chaplain. I already had the figures put together (did it this week), so it might not be too bad. Only 6 figures to paint. Should be able to get the airbrushing parts done tonight and then start working on details Saturday.

I still want to try and get a game in with my son! He's being the social butterfly lately... :)

Well went to the tournament this weekend and my team won best team up and I got store credit ^-^. So goodies this weekend were one soul grinder, one fiend of Slaanesh and a pot of magenta wash. Tried to assemble the fiend... it apparently came with 2 left arms which is proving somewhat awkward.

NealSmith
11-05-2009, 16:56
Got my game in with my son... He barely beat me in a 1,500 point annihilation game... The whole time I'm thinking... "Man! That's a lot of figures for 1,500 points. And I'm killing them left and right and they are still coming..." We worked out the list later that night and it turns out he had almost 2,200 points of figures/upgrades... He has since started writing the list down on paper... The little monkey! :)

Scrapped my idea of doing the Terminators. Never have good luck with these. Going to work on a jump pack Chaplain instead and bring back the assault squad! Woohoo!

Captain Micha
11-05-2009, 16:57
Mothers Day came up. (I forgot too!) so I wound up making my mom breakfast on Sunday didn't get my games in after all.

However I did finish my guardsmen before mother's day!

I should now have enough guardsmen to do an all infantry force at 1500 if I want to.

Got the jump pack Chaplain done. Played another quick game testing him out with my son this week.

Our group is meeting Saturday for a lot of individual games. I'm hoping to get at least 3 games in during the day/evening.

Not sure what I want to paint next... Probably need to finish my son's BT LR Crusader. I might finish putting together the rest of my SM company and then paint that. That's been the goal to get a whole company w/ transport, etc.

Those Baneblades, Stompas, Valkyries are calling to me too... I so want to put them together! :)

18-05-2009, 13:50
OK, got two games in on Saturday.

First against Sisters of Battle. A very nicely planned assault (Rhino Rush) on my lines, but I was able to engage them with both firepower and a ten man assault squad + Chaplain and hold them off. It was annihilation and I was worried for a while because I was getting all of his squads down to 1-2 figures, but I wasn't actually killing them! It worked itself out in the end for a 5 (1 rhino, 4 10-woman squads)-3 (two rhino types and 5-man Dev) victory.

Second against Chaos SM. We called this a draw (advantage to me) as I chose not to take my last turn as it was running real late. I could have contested his objective and held on to one of mine. That would have been a 1-0 objective win for me. It was a long range slugfest. Only close combats involved deep striking CSM Termies and my deep striking assault squad/chaplain combo.

Then... I decided to finish off my DIY SM company and flush it out to full size. I'm doing all of the Rhino's etc. too.

Finished already: 3 tactical squads, assault squad, two HQs, Most of two full devastator squads. Two Rhinos. Razorback.

WIP - Devastator heavy weapons, Devastator sergeant for second squad, command squad, 6 Rhinos

Started putting together the other assault squad (completed) and the 3 other tactical squads are partially assembled (legs/torso/backpack/head).

Once this company is done (another week or two?) I think I might move on to some Orks... :)

I ended up doing 1 1/2 Loota guns, out of the 5 remaning, but on the plus side I played 3 games, winning 2 and losing one. With any luck I'll get the blasted things done this week, and then I can finally move on to another, more interesting unit.

Preparing for an 8500 - 10,000 point apocalypse with General Steiner in June at Nottingham - v. excited as we will be using the fortress wall table.

I am therefore frantically painting Genestealers and Gargoyles and wondering where I can find another easy 250 points. I am also waiting anxiously for my forgeworld warrior wings I ordered mid April

I'm in the midst of painting my 30 Guardsmen, using a WW 2 German paint scheme, with a tie-in to my Tanks and such.

Can I ask a Q...the Vendettas, seen as they're a part of the Imperial Navy but sequestered to a Battlegroup/Regiment (is this correct?)...do they have to have a paintjob similar to the Battlegroup, or do they still adopt their Imperial Navy Wing colours?

I've put together my 10 assault marines and 30 Tactical marines this week, so I'll start working on priming and airbrushing the base coat and the camo (shhhh! I know they aren't supposed to be camo! :) )...

Maybe I'll work on finishing the 6 Rhinos that have been sitting camo'd for a few months now... :)

I'm really psyched about finishing off a whole battle company!

A new weekend for 40k...
So Saturday I have to learn for some stupid exams (Monday and Tuesday). So that's means this day are off gaming...
Today I want to depart from work early in order to get to dentist and then to my game club to face a very good Tau player with my nooB DH army (sound like a defeat but I have to give the best of me not to be wipe out).
After the game while watching my favorite soccer team game I want to paint a couple of models and also to was the resin GK Dread in order to start painting it.
Tomorrow maybe I'll go to the game club to start assembly my Sentinel (and my Hydra flak tank if it's arrive today) as well as playing a game (with the new guard).Tomorrow night it's going to be dedicated to the Thunderbolt fighter (cut it from the sprue then wash it and make to receive chaos black undercoat). In my spare time maybe painting the arms/weapons arms for 10 IG (flamers/GL/ML).

Death Korp
22-05-2009, 07:57
Well, I have this weekend and next week off! :)

So, I'll be preparing for my exams obviously, doing bits of work on my WoC horde, painting my Iron Warriors Shadowsword and trying to get out of the house with my mates.

Hi, Khornies,

Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure the codex says that they can sometimes adopt the colours of the force they're attached to or keep their own. Again, I'm not sure of this (I might have just dreamed it :)), but you can go just with whatever looks best for your force, I reckon.

What scheme do you have in mind? You gonna post pictures?

Khornies & milk
22-05-2009, 08:39
Damn, I never thought to look in the new Codex actually...I was looking in the IA books, and I couldn't see an answer to my specific Q in there.

I could just do what I want but wanted to see if there is a 'specific' way to approach it.

Some of the FOW books have a lot of colour schemes in them and I was thinking of doing a Luftwaffe style scheme from a late war ME109.

Oh man. i completely forgot about this thread.

Well since it is the weekend i'll post my goals. Ive got to get my Tzeentch Sorcerer fully painted, his blue armour is done i need to work his trim and weapons. If i concentrate on him tonight o may well complete him.

It's also Half Term for me from college next week so Iv'e got plenty of painting time to paint more. I need to get 2 Khorne Beserkers done and a unit of possessed.

22-05-2009, 11:42
Well, if the mass of Marine stuff arrives tomorrow I'll try and get some of that glued and basecoated, I'm moving into a new flat though so this weekend may end up being a write-off in gaming terms :|

Well i got exams on tuseday and thursady next week. So all 40k has been packed away so i will actually revise instead of painting.

Then once the exams are over im moving out of halls and into to a flat so my 40k will have to stay packed away.

on the other hand my order from Wayland should be arriving soon! Shame i got revision to do.

Still painting those b----y Guardsmen. My fault though, as for some insane reason I decided that I'd paint each arm/weapon/torso seperately before gluing together. What a pain in the a$$.

I didn't quite finish off what I had planned for last weekend...

I got 2 out of 3 colors airbrushed onto my 40 space marines.
I also built the Warhammer "Stonehenge" terrain thingy. Looks pretty cool. Was thinking of "Spinal Tap" the whole time I was working on it...

This week, I put together 20 Stormboyz and started working on the Big MEK SAG guy last night.

For the weekend, I'm going to finish off the third color on my space marines and then assemble more Orks.

I find I just like putting the models together much more than painting them lately! :)

Captain Micha
29-05-2009, 13:01
Hopefully this weekend I will run (rained all week so I had to skip out on running).

Play some Star Wars Saga, and maybe some 40k.

I'm thinking I'll be playing my Guard and if I think it's possible to get in a second game I'll play Necrons afterwards.... Because the Terminator movie was good enough to bring my Crons back out over.

I've got to get painting my guardsmen this weekend - i've had my current guard army for nearly a year and after nearly a year of 'test painting' random guardsmen to find a colour scheme i like, that suits my fluff, i've decided on one (I'm great at being decisive, obviously...). So, i've got about a third of the infantry base coated so far, now i just need to go on with the other 3000pts or so that is just black! Fortunately this includes around 10 vehicles, so the guard horde won't overwhelm me too much.

Aside from that i should have three new Ogryns arriving in the post today/tomorrow, since they are now worth buying, and they'll need assembling before my battle on Wednesday. AND, if i get time i've found 4 flagellant frames in my bitz box, so i want to kit bash those with a couple of unassembled cadian frames i have and try and create some psykers for my battle psyker squad.

Hopefully i'll get at least one of the above done :)

I'm painting Imperial guardsmen ATM. It's going well, almost got one squad done, but then again I have a lot to do, confident I'm going to get it done though and I really want to play Guard.

Here's hoping I can start shooting lasguns and giving light shows and discos to everything, I think the Eldar will enjoy it.

Once my bank's new balance shows up then I can go buy more figures... as if I didn't have enough.

For the first time in a month I managed to get something 40k model related built - my Age of Strife Objective Marker Competition entry (http://www.ageofstrife.com/gallery/AoSCommunity07/ammo_dump_001) :D The previous one I had finished about 1 hour before the deadline, this time I had over 24 hours left which is pretty good for me as I tend to leave most things to the last minute.

Now I just need to find enough time to finish organising an AoS weekend at Warhammer World, build a few hundred figures/models, and paint about 30,000 points worth of stuff. Unfortunately I'm at a wedding this weekend coming so that lot will have to wait another 2 weeks yet ... :angel:

I have a sinking feeling that the girlfriend is going to be into Big Brother this year.

That considered, it looks like I'm going to be able to get some serious hobbying done over the summer. Just got to find an effective way to drown out the vacuous drivel pouring out of the mouths of the latest collection of pseudo-human egotists now.

If the surprise housemate this year is a hungry polar bear I will tune in. Otherwise, I'll just continue to sink into dismay over what this society has become. :cries:

Dr. Hellbeast

I wouldn't trust any of them to be able to handle firearms. Let's face it, they'd just drop the gun and wander off toward something shiny as soon as they caught their reflection in it. It's like Springwatch and Planet of the Apes rolled into one three month pain-fest for anybody with hopes of seeing mankind evolve spiritually and intellectually.

Hmm, that's true. Maybe booby traps are the way to go.

Finally, I have a weekend off! I'll probably do less hobby stuff though, because I can do two-days-off-in-a-row stuff. Probably just make endless Guard lists, now that I have the damn Codex.

Dr. Hellbeast
05-06-2009, 11:38
Yeah, I really should get back on topic before I force myself to close my own thread.

I'm working on A Codex Imperialis guardsman at the moment. I have sawn a Steel Legion Lieutenant up to get the legs and am putting a Kasrkin torso on it, with the Steel Legion dude's skull-helmeted bonce for the head. There has been an awful lot of precision sawing and filing involved so far, but he's starting to look so sweet that I know I'm gonna be tempted to make an entire squad of them to use as stormtroopers. That's gonna take a lot of man-hours to achieve.

I'm also working on a Jokaero conversion based on an Ogre Kingdoms Yhetee body (pleasingly ape-like, I must say), a Demiurg chappy, a Space Slann fella using skink and kroot bitz, and I'm very tempted to shorten the limbs and torso on a Cadian troop and green stuff a beard on him to see if he looks squat-like.

Oh, and the winged Living Saint conversion I intend to use Bloodthirster rules for. She'll have pegasus wings, the Empire wizard's flaming sword, and be flying at FW Avatar head level somehow. I think I'm also gonna do a headswap and put the Daemonette herald head with the big flowing hair on to give her a crazy, manga look.

My son and I are playing with the FLGS group Saturday. Two games and maybe a third if we play quickly enough! :)

These games are coming just in time to motivate me to paint again! A week ago, I was all gung-ho, but I lost it since then and was going to "take a weekend off" this weekend. :)

I've been putting together a ton of Orks over the last week or so. Got my Battlewagon completed last night. It's a pretty cool model I have to say! Also completed 20 Stormboyz, 2 of the old metal Nobz (they don't look so Nob-like compared to the new plastic boyz...), Boss Zagstruck, 3 Mega Armor Nobz, the Big Mek w/SAG, and a Weirdboy.

Now I just need to paint some of this stuff! LOL

P.S. Never tried to watch "Big Brother". I could see that train wreck before it happened I think... What is up with these shows? I guess technically I watch some "reality TV"... Amazing Race (becoming kind of repetitive...), Deadliest Catch (Shut up and fish!), Ice Road Truckers (Is this season going to be lame?) and Mythbusters! LOL

Played two games Saturday and started another one with my son Sunday night!

Worst moment of the weekend... My SM vs. Orks... "City terrain"... Capture and Control Mission... Dawn of War deployment... I'm going second... I had 6" of table to deploy my two troops with all of my real firepower off table. It was "over" by turn two. We could have played, more, but it would have been an exercise in futility since I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have been able to contest all of the objectives with what I had left...

Saturday just gone (6th) We held a D-Day themed Apocalypse scenario.

8,000 points a side, IG and Black Templars assaulting the Chaos, Tyranid and Necron held planet of "Phrance".

It was pretty good fun, except that most of our armour was immobilised on the beach :(
(on the plus side, we finally used the chimera's amphibious special rule)

I'll see if I can find some pics cos the board set-up looked great.

Finished my Scourges which I luckily found at the hobby store. Now I'm Almost done with 10 Plague Bearers. Chaos Black, Vermin Brown, Bleach Bone mix gives them an extremily rotting look. Lucious is almost done, went for the Pre-Heresy scheme with him. On the side I have some DE Hellions & Guard to paint. With the Guard I'm going Mech, paint as less troops as I can.

Hi, thought I'd start another thread to ask people what their hobby goals are for the weekend.

I intend to do some work on a Shadowsword I'm making for my friend's birthday. How about you guys? What you got planned?

Have a good weekend, all. :)

This Weekend i'm starting my campagn "The Orpheus Invasions" with three freinds.

We tried a rule linking the fights together so it looks like there's a constant flow of bugs, check out the sample...

Scenario 2: Kill it with Fire
Forces: Imperial Guard vs Tyranids
Deployement: Pitched Battle
Mission: Capture And Control
Invaders: Tyranids

Invaders:
The invading force is in reserve and rolls as normal, modifiers apply.
Roll Scatter for deployement zone and table side.
Deployement zone is 6" deep.
The invading units are in addition to the players army, and don't take up FOC slots
Tyranids: 10 Hormagaunts

It's my birthday and I'm finally going to finish my Guard Infantry and maybe start a painting log about my soon to be stripped guardsmen.

Few things I plan to do:

Do the final few bits of painting on my Hellhound
Finish painting the Basecoat of my Vanquisher, apply transfers and get it varnished ready for weathering and detail painting.
Scrub clean one Hydra, one Armageddon Pattern Basilisk and about 30 assorted Krieg models.

Looking to get in a couple of games of 40k with my orks that I brought up to 1,500 pts recently; they're a real wrecking crew as their first game I played showed me.

Hi, thought I'd start another thread to ask people what their hobby goals are for the weekend.

Finish painting some terrain. Namely, my mother in laws house. Its cool, I love the lady, and we'll have friends helping.

I have some old deathgaurd metals in the works that I've already sprayed. All they need is some base coating of colored areas and final assembly, then I'm gonna "dip" them, so I should be able to do that in my spare time.

I'm going to pick up some new paint and supplies so I can paint instead of constantly plying this cursed forum.

Start up a plog. Best of both worlds.

Hopefully get some painting done too, although I'll probably fail.

Hopefully finish painting my khorne berserkers and Iron Warriors.

Visited GW yesterday and found (expectantly) that they would not be receiving anymore Blood Claws or Grey Hunters till the new line is released. I wanted a squad of either to practice my Space Wolves techniques on so instead I had to make do with a 10 man regular tactical squad. So I shall be doing those this weekend.

Also bought the 1st space wolves omnibus to read.

Finish assembling most of the stacked up marines and undercoat em, so I can start painting em during next week. And GMing Dark Heresy on sunday, so I have an excuse that I needed to do something else if I don't finish assembling stuff :p

I'm going to finish my third tactical marines squad and maybe, just maybe, buy an Assault Terminators box set. Just a quick OT question, Are the Terminators metal or plastic?
