Warlock painted

Well it’s been over a week since I issued the 3 night painting challenge to myself (which was a major failure) but I have added a warlock to that pile of painted miniatures. I know I’m slow, but deal with it. However, I’m not 100% sure I like him how I have painted him, as I didn’t want to cloak to be purple I decided to do it either blue or bleach bone and settled for the latter. I wanted him to stand out in a squad and he does now but is it too much? What do you guys think, let me know.

As a little side note next to get painted will be the fire dragons, I need to get them painted again as having them just based it a little painful as they look dreadful.

Kin war... Eldar vs Dark eldar 1500 points

 I know it has been a while but I have finally got back to a proper battle report at a good size game. I take on the dark eldar with my eldar (pure eldar this time) in a 1500 point crusade game. Now if you think the models are familiar it’s because they are, my friend is moving house so has packed away his Tyranids for now, so he asked if he could play with my dark eldar instead.

3 Night challenge: night 3

So that's the 3 nights over, i did have big plans for what i would get painted but unfortunately this didn't come to fruition. Instead the whole time was wasted on a single squad of eldar guardians. At least something got painted i guess.

I am stupidly slow at painting, but i can live with that. Do you guys have any tips that can increase painting speed? how fast can you all do it? just curious.

Here are the pics of the guardians full painted, however the warlock and weapons platform still isn't painted. better keep an eye out for them in future.

3 Night challenge: Night 2

So the second night has passed and i have a few models to show for it. Am i happy with my progress? hell no. I have to be one of the slowest painters in the history of 40 k. 3 Nights to paint that list i put up was very optimistic so i will be surprised if i even finish half of the list. Still one more night to go... so you never know.

3 Night Painting challenge: Night 1

Well last night was the first night of the painting challenge and to be honest... it didn't go very well. I sat down, started painting then i stopped and went out. Always a good start. But i did get some (almost) done. 3 guardians are about 80% done, just need a new hight lights and the bases finished off. To make up for it i will get my ass into gear and get a lot more done tonight. Anyway this is what i have done so far.

The traitors wrath... chaos space marines vs space wolves 500

I got an odd text from a friend who I haven’t seen in quite a while asking if I wanted a game of warhammer, but it was to be 40k, 500 points, I had to use space wolves and all the models have to be painted. I accepted as I was rather curious and I wasn’t told why until the game. My friend had just bought the new chaos codex and wanted to give his old chaos force a spin. So we had a 500 point game using the Battle force recon mission, Chaos space marines vs Space wolves.

Games workshop... not cool dude

Just so you know, i was planning on writing a review for the new Chaos codex, pre-ordered it from GW, though it would get here on the day of release. I got nothing... Not cool dudes.

Just sayin....

A clash of steal... Eldar/Dark eldar vs Imperial guard 1500

My second game with the allies list and I’m up against imperial guard in a 1500 point game of the relic with vanguard strike deployment. With a loss with this list under my belt already I feel that I may have learnt something and will hopefully use this list a bit better tactically.

White dwarf october 2012 - review

White Dwarf October 2012

With white dwarf going though some major changes this month I thought that it would be worth me just giving my views on this new format. I know I’m a little late at doing this but I have been a little busy.
