View Full Version : Getting 4000pts of Deathwing ready!

03-04-2006, 07:17
As some of you may be aware, I am playing StormTrooper154 in a 4000pt game between his Tyranids and my Deathwing.

This is going to be an incredible game, but first I have lots of painting to do and I didn't even finish my first Deathwing project log, did I?

Here's what I have to paint:

1 dreadnought
1 land raider
1 land raider prometheus
27 terminators

The army as a whole.

looking slick now paint paint and paint! twill be wonderous to see em all done later, also thought about a display board for them?

03-04-2006, 07:50
While some people may like display boards, I think they're a bit pointless. Besides, I don't have anywhere to store the damn thing. lol.

03-04-2006, 08:21
yeah I agree with Animerik, paint, paint, paint!! Though please do keep us poor sods updated!

The land raiders are assembled and are currently having all the missed bits painted black.

Painting is slow, because I have a cold/flu.

By the way, once the mega battle is finished, I will be selling 2 squads of Deathwing, a land raider, the land raider prometheus and a Mortis dread.

EDIT: I've lost my ******* paintbrush!
Oh well, off to the hobby shop tomorrow morning.

Lookin good Darkseer. I dont think you did finish your first log. O well you will finish this one:D


04-04-2006, 16:57
I have to finish this one, otherwise StormTrooper154 will probably insert a scythed carnifex somewhere :S

05-04-2006, 08:47
I decided that I needed my Mortis to become a Venerable dreadnought

What's your due date to have it all done? Liked the dread better as a Mortis, but understand that list needs sometimes trump figure coolness.

You know, I really like BATTLE REPORTS, uh huh. BATTLE REPORTS are great, especially if it has pictures. Yeah a BATTLE REPORTs with pictures are nice.

hint hint

P.S verrry nice paint jobs, though they are a bit too clean for my liking.

05-04-2006, 17:56
Yes, there will be a battle report, complete with photos, pre-game rants and post-game rants.

The army needs to be finished for the weekend of the 27th of May.

The battle size has been reduced from 4000pts to 3000pts. We agreed we'd never finish our armies in time otherwise.

I'm liking the shield on the dread's left shoulder. I wonder what part it is.

Consider it stolen. ;)

I have a battle with pictures, I am just to lazy to post it.

but maybe some more asking could kick me into gear

IIRC that shield is the old Terminator sergeant power sword shield thing. You know, the bit that shielded the arm that held the power sword.

06-04-2006, 07:18
Yup, all my metal sgts (that I still have to paint) have these shields.

I figured that one of my dreadnoughts should have one. After all, the sgts are always the first to die.

I still have to do the final highlights on this guys feet.


He's being kept a little simpler than the other dreads because I'm selling him after the game.

21 terminators left to paint...
