Hello all you beautiful people.

Well I was working on a Sons of Horus army, I just came to the conclusion that I hate hate HATE painting marines. It's just so damn boring. So I got to thinking what else can I do that would be more fun and at the same time cheap.

Well I love Dwarfs and have a huge amount of them as well as a lot of bits, so I may do a Space Dorf army just for fun. Don't know what list to use tho (I would use Guard but I have a huge guard army already).

Any suggestions?

I would use guard any ways. Lots of cool conversion you could make too, like making their kopters using valkryie rules.

Hey all (seems that I posted in the wrong location... so I copied this post over to here).

I'm assuming that I'm participating, despite the fact that my name is absent from the list. I'm in Oshawa (any other ppl in the eastern side of GTA?).

Here's my first troop choice I'll be painting, along with a Rhino (220ish points):

Here's my pile of other things that I'll be choosing from as we move forward:

http://i648.photobucket.com/albums/uu201/EldarBishop/SoB_Tanks.jpg

(Yes, those are ALL really, really OLD Rhino chassis based vehicles :D )

Sorry about the flash brightness... hopefully picture taking quality will also improve through the course of this exercise :p

Happy painting/gaming everyone!

Yeah sounds possible. I could make it radically different from my horde of infantry IG and tank support and have a more veteran army. I have so many Imperial bits that its insane. Also I could add an Inq with mystics (which I normally do for my IG) as a Ordos Xenos guy helping my beardos get revenge on 'nids.

Actually I just got a mental picture of a Dwarf with a bionic eye and a powerfist, and it looked pretty awesome

I'm going to have to use a joker, but I'll be able to have 400 points worth done for next month. Here are some pics from one of our fellow gamers

Wow! Who did those Eldar? They look sweet!

As for me, I'll have play a Joker this month as well. I'll have at least 400 points done by the end of June. I might post some pictures regarding what I've got done by the end of the week, maybe early next week.

Dictator
02-06-2009, 00:43
Yeah, incredible eldar. They are so clean and smooth. Clap Clap!

Also, could you provide a link to the background? I really like that and would love to use it for my picture taking. Thanks

Those eldar look good, a quality paint job indeed

I unfortunately am using my joker for the first month...Just too many gaunts!

I may be using another one for this month as well, A friend of mine just committed suicide and I'm having troubles concentrating on the hobby right now. I will hopefully get back on track soon.

It's not looking good for my 400 points this month... I haven't painted half as often as I would have liked and I started the month way behind. Not even a week left and I still have to do the details and base my first 200 points, then do a full 200 other points.

*Is praying for a solid weekend of painting*

My month of June. After I took the pics I realized it needs ALOT more work. However it is to a table top standard and playable.

Happy Canada Day All!

I figured before I head out for a day of celebrating our nations birth, I thought I would take some pics of what I've got done.

There is a Raider Squad and 2 Haemonculi. They are ready for the tabletop.

Sorry for the lateness here guys. Very busy around the end of the month, you can see I posted on my blog (http://gwpertinent.blogspot.com/2009/07/raptors-assault-squad-progress-to-date.html) but finding this thread was tougher.

Not fully complete - missing bases and jump packs.

Seems I've been posting photos in the wrong spot. I'll try and copy my post over:

I've completed a squad of Red Scorpions so no Joker for me this month. The Matte spray fogged up on me with the humidity which just pisses me off. Not that I think these are my finest work, but it is still frustrating.

Hey Gibb did you know the bunker here in oakville closed down? We currently don't have anywhere to game here unless its an at home game.

06-08-2009, 04:57
So what's this all about? Should I be joining? I'm in the Torontoish area... and I know at least 3 of the people/armies being produced here...but I already have blogs for my army WIPs.... and they don't have deadlines! :D

Good luck to you all, I'm sure I'll see a few of you on the tables, and I know I saw one of you on them just last week as you felt the might of the deathwatch ;).

Say WHAT?? I was just down there like a week ago, and the sign was still there. :( I never actualy got to game in there.

Edit: I say we ransac Comic Connections. It's on the corner of Kerr and Rebecca. The guy just bought out the store beside him, and I've been threatening to move in with my non existant friends :P

Quade Collins
07-08-2009, 18:32
I can talk up Rich(comic connection owner) and see if he would be cool with us taking over his store once a week. i have more then enough cities of death terrain to use. plus he may start carrying GW stuff if enough of us show up to play.

Haha, I've already badgered him about all that :P He said that as long as we pick a time that we aren't interfering with other stuff, it should be fine. As long as SOMONE shows up once a week, it will be a success I think :P I havn't played in AGES so I'de love to get in a game sometime soon, before I move away for school, heh.

The real point behind gameing tables in GW is that it draws in kids to the hobby, so if we get some games going, maybe it'll spark some interest in his other patrons.

Life Sucks, man.

Gotta use a joker for July. Too much stuff going on last month, hopefully it's going to calm down soon and I can get to hobby work.

Quade Collins

Hey Gibb after the summer is over i would be more then willing to start gaming at the comic connection. I have a table and tonnes of cities of death terrain at my house, and i would have almost no problem dragging it down to comic connection if it ment i get to play more then once a month.

Unfortuneately I'm moveing up to Humber college in september, so I won't exactly be around. Though I don't think it would be TOO hard to come back for a game one weekend a month :P

To be honest, I've been thinking for a while now about starting up a hobby community for the GTA, but I just havn't gotten around to makeing a good looking forum to host it.
