Quote(finally) convert the old style Screaming Bell to not look too weedy.  This will never happen as it's just so tiny, cue a purchase of the plastic kit later in the year


Nonsense Tom - all you need is balsa wood. Behold!

Is there such a category as awesome/lame? 'cos that's what that is... :bell001:

Corrected the spelling on that one for you  :wink;m::

Pip, that's genius.  To Hobbycraft!

Totally my mistake. After some hours in the Clan Moulder re-education camps, I now realise it's actually TRIPLE AWESOME..

Angelus Mortifer

      No particular order (because that would just be silly):

      - Finish my Imperial Knight (hope to get this pretty much done over Christmas, to pave the way in 2015 for.... lots of Blood Angels!!!).

      - Start with minor model updates to my BAs because of the new book (thankfully the lists I tend to run were not overtly affected by the new FOC/unit changes):

      • Company Champion for my now "Command" Squad (Honour Guard dammit!)

      • 2 Jump Assault Sergeants, double Inferno Pistol, double Hand Flamer

      • 2 Jump Assault Flamers

      • Foot-slogging Priest



      - Continue the painting plan of doing "X" large kit and "X" unit/model in tandem (to keep things fresh and to keep painting momentum) and to expand my BA options, in no particular order:

      • Sicaran Battle Tank

      • Damocles Command Rhino

      • Stormraven Gunship

      • Sanguinary Guard Squad with various load-outs

      • Jump DC with options

      • Commander Dante

      • Second Jump Librarian

      • CC Scout Squad

      • Double Melta Attack Bike Squad



      - Carry on doing some scenery related stuff:

      • Buy a gaming mat from Frontline Games (because they are sweeeeeettt)

      • Finish my Imperial Statuary piece

      • Some more craters/barricades

      • Mechanicus themed Skyport (using various scenery kits to create a multi-level Skyshield type arrangement


      - Maybe try and get back to doing some more on the Chapter Fortress... though again this will be unlikely, knowing me.

      - General additions:

      • Imperial Assassins, all of them

      • Maybe some Wolf Allies


      That should keep me going, and now that it's all written down I have something tangible to refer to this time next year to see how well I..... FAILED!

"Sanguinius. It should have been him. He has the vision and strength to take us to victory, and wisdom to rule once victory is won. For all his aloof coolness, he alone has the Emperor's soul in his blood. Each of us carries part of our father - Sanguinius holds it all." Horus

1. Finish the Skaven army.  Very little to do now, just a second unit of Jezzails, Plague Furnace and (finally) convert the old style Screaming Bell to not look too weedy.  This will never happen as it's just so tiny, cue a purchase of the plastic kit later in the year  :wink;m::


I started a skaven army about a month ago, painting has picked up recently on them, and I'm quite enthused about them so hoping to get an army done first few months of this year. I bought some wind globadiers and jezzails and now it looks like the former at least might be released as a plastic kit for the next End times book if the rumourmill be true.

From the leaked image of the new Vermin Lord I think my Skaven army may actually have some further recruits to come in 2015 - Globadiers could be a nice looking addition, although I've never had any lucky with them in games (4+ to do 1 wound is pretty poor in a world  of monstrous cav).

If the alleged armoured rat ogres and a new Thanquol are also in the offing...sigh, it's going to be an expensive January!

I have a Skaven army sitting on my shelf so I'm interested in these too!!!

I'm going to start a painting blog for exploits on here... My 2014 effort was so dismal that I need some inspiration and encouragement!!!!

When it's up... Please visit there and say nice things about me!!!

Late to the party but in brief:

- Try my hand at painting, I'm very aware of the overwhelming greyness of all my game minis having seen the threads on here and the models at the club...

- Survival of an entire dungeon in Warhammer Quest, preferably without needing ressurection.

- More Descent!
