Good news! On Tuesday I made major strides with the scratchbuilt titan. I was having trouble cutting the pvc since I don’t have a mitre. I bought one, but the saw I was using wasn’t good enough. I was getting discouraged and decided to wait till I could get a jigsaw from my parents (yeah, I know I should own one already, but I haven’t really filled out a propper tool box yet), when I had a thought. I needed to get my dremel out for another project (more on that later, I’ve been converting a Plano gun case into a mini carrying case!), why not use it to cut and sand the pvc sections so they are the right size. As you can see, this was successful! I have assembled the entire body. I even added the pistons I was missing, although there are 8 more that are supposed to be connecting the waist to the leggs I haven’t done yet. I also want to add some design to the caps on the pvc, so it looks a little less scratchbuilt. I also need to get a fine grit sandpaper to start working on cleaning up my liquid greenstuff work.
In honor of the new Abbadon vs Lokken model that was just shown off by Forgeworld, I have a thought up a fun way to start a heresy era force without having to delve into Warhammer 30k. The idea is just after the video promo… The first thing I thought when I saw the model was “Wow, I found my Abbadon model.” Indeed, one of the main reasons I have not run Abbadon is because I hate his model. That also means I’ve never built a chosen-as-troops list. I presume you just sort of maximize damage output. I had the idea in the following way. First I thought, well you’d have to chaos-ify him a bit. But then it struck me that you could do Abbadon as is, with units of Sons of Horus as chosen, and a unit of justaterin terminators in a land raider proteus (which basically has the same armaments as the CSM LR). Of course, I still want to include a blob of 30 Cultists and a lord in the backfield to sit on an objective, so for that I’d probably buy 3 squads of Guardsmen, give them 3 flamers, stick a Legion Champion in it.
I’m still plugging away on the Chaos Rhino. I have the free hand done, unless I decide to add more, and everything is base coated and shaded now. I’ve begun some of the highlights, which you’ll see, but I’ll need … Continue reading →
I know why do I keep bothering? It’s not like the CSM codex is awesome. Well I like doing it because I like CSM and I want them to take names and kill things. Could this be the army? Chaos Space Marines – 2,000 points HQ Kharn the Betrayer Elite 5 x Chosen w/ Chaos Rhino -
Yes I have been thinking about Chaos Space Marines again. It’s pretty much the same list as list time (previous post is here ) but the same stuff more or less keeps going around in my head. Chaos Space Marines – 2,000 points HQ Chaos Lord -
This is the first of my new posting format for the blog. Now there will be a schedule for what gets posted here on GiF. The Build will be my hobby pledges for the next 7 days. I have got to force some motivation on myself. Right now I start out every week with the intentions of getting stuff done, but seem to find myself derailed by real life most of the time
