November Painting Points And Summary

So I finally painted something this month, enough anyways to mention the painting points that I earned for November! Yay Me! I managed to paint 50 points this month, which brings my total for 2010 to...50 points!

I also played in a Warmachine slow grow league this month. We started out at 15 points on week one and added 5 points to our forces each week, till we ended just yesterday at 35 points. It was a good to finally learn the game since I bought the models back in May and had no clue what I was doing. It also earned me half my painting points for the month!

Looking ahead to next month I have a at home 40k slow grow league that my friend Adam and I have been planning. Look forward to seeing some progress on my Tyranid force that I will be assembling and painting for that.

35 Points of Menoth

Well here it is, 35 points of painted Menoth in all their glory. It was a fun league to play in and maybe I'll get another chance someday! Thanks for the good times guys!

Grand Exemplar Kreoss

This is my warcaster for my Protectorate force.

I really like the model, its way easier than regular Kreoss to put together I think. I think the Exemplar models for the range are pretty cool looking, so naturally I wanted to build a force around them. Kreoss was a easy choice for me as he is the leader of the Exemplar order.

Next up will be my Vanquisher followed by the rest of my heavy jacks. Later this weekend I will post my in progress pics of my Cinerators, which will be the last addition to the force and will bring me up to a total of 35 points.

Thanks for stopping by.

What I've been up to

I know I've been quiet for the past couple months. Unfortunately, work has gotten in the way of the hobby, so I've not had a lot of time to blog. However, that doesn't mean I haven't been not doing things. My current project I've got going on are my Protectorate of Menoth army, a Tyranid force for a escalation league coming up in December, a Sanguinary Guard force, and of course my Dark Angels.

First up for for show and tell is the Protectorate of Menoth as they are my most important project right now as we are half way through the escalation league for Warmachine. The force right now includes eKreoss and a Revenger light jack. For the heavy jacks, I have a Crusader, Vanquisher and a Castigator. Right now the only unit I have is a minimum unit of Exemplar Errants but there is a unit of Exemplar Cinerators and the Unit Attachment for the Errants on the way.

In the coming days, I will give each unit and jack their own showcase on the website, along with a few previews of the Tyranids and the Sanguinary Guard.

Tyranids vs Dark Eldar

Wife and I played a 500 point game tonight. I took the tyranids for a spin since I've never played them, and she used the brand spankin new Dark Eldar. Not much of a battle report, just more of a few pics.

Wyches are absolutly deadly for what its worth. They wiped out a unit of termagants in assault and took at turns worth of firing from the Hive Tyrant and a unit of Warriors and only lost 1 model. The pain tokens really help them out.

In the end, it wasnt enough though. I had pretty much tabled her by my turn 3, all she had left was lelith. The Hive Mind was closing in and she conceded.
