The question often comes up, “What is a good model or formation to add to my army for Apocalypse.”
From Forge World Open Day comes news of new Necron units.
Hey guys! So I buckled down today, got up early, and worked all day, but Snake Eyes' Imperial Guard addition is complete! For those of you who don't remember, I did a group of Eagle Warriors for him a couple of summers ago; here's the link to it:
A cool video showing some of the great art that will be in the upcoming Imperial Armour 12: The Fall of Orpheus. This looks like it will be even better than the last volume.
Back in December, Snake-Eyes and I ran a Toys for Tots tournament at the FLGS and an interesting thing occurred; we ended up running into a friend that we had not seen in almost 20 years. During the conversation with that friend, we ended up discovering that another friend, Mike was also back in the state of California and still playing 40K. Mike was the person who got me into the hobby in the first place back in 1994. He painted up several of my first miniatures and he even gave me a few models to help me get my collection up to a playable level…. for an entire year, he kicked the living crap out of me and my Space Wolves with his Imperial Guard . A year later, I traded them for Eldar and the tides turned as I was the one who was winning games. We were both in the Marine Corps and I ended up rotating to Okinawa and we lost touch. I continued to play 40K and as Snake-Eyes and I were in the same Military Occupation, we continued to play against each other for the past almost 20 years.
Maybe it’s just me, but when I see the Tyrant’s logo, I want to smash xenos scum. Last year, I had a moment of inspiration. I decided that I needed to either build a pre-heresy army, a new CSM force to use as my undivided army, or an additional powered armor army in addition to my CSM and Dark Angels. The reason I was only considering powered armour was that I had a few dozen marines worth of bits, so I had the core of the army already. Dopey the Lion isn't as inspiring
Hey guys! Just a quick post today, I didn’t get a lot of painting done over the weekend, though I’ve got some pieces built; should have pictures of those tomorrow! Brian’s Necromantic Blood Bowl Team WIP. Pretty cool models for being almost as old as I am! For all of you in Colorado and, most importantly, the Denver area, we’re going to be down from the 16th-18th for Genghis Con 2013! I couldn’t get a 40k army I was happy with together in time, so I’m only entering the painting competition and planning on shooting the breeze and drinking the weekend away. RTGamer, on the other hand, has the better part of a Warriors of Chaos army to get through. So, wish him luck, hoping he gets them done in time and doesn’t just cop out and take Vampires (I’m calling you out RTGamer!). Anyways, I’ve got a couple pieces I’m planning on entering. Primarily is my baby, the Giant Chaos Spawn. Should hold its own in the grand scheme of things and, while I don’t expect it to win overall, I’d love to walk away with some awards. Secondly, I’m thinking about throwing in an older squad of mine after I redo their bases. I love my Imperial Guard army, even if I don’t play it very often.
