Recent painting efforts

 Welcome back to the Vault. It's been quiet here, but the hobby machine keeps on running. I thought I'd post a quick update with some of the recently finished models.

First up is the most recent project; a Chaos Knight all ready to support the Iron Warriors at a Highlander event next month.

Alongside 12(!) War Dogs (I've also painted two more Stalkers since the last post) this brings the Knights project to well over 2000 points.

Chaos War Dogs

 Welcome back to the Vault! My gaming partner and I had a fun day at the Meme Team doubles last weekend, placing mid-table results wise. My eye is now looking towards Mayhem, and pondering what to take to this 1500 points singles event.

A strong contender is my most recently finished project; a Chaos Knights force composed entirely of War Dogs! I started this last year with the intention of a few models I could ally into either my Death Guard or Iron Warriors, but it's taken on a life of it's own.

This project was tackled as something of a speed painting project; minimal colour choices applied as simple base colours and zero shading/highlighting. I'm quite please with the result and the army can easily be evolved to the "next level" if I want to add more details, etc.

Time for the potato-cam pics! First up is the Stalker Warlord:

Warsmith's Words: Exalted Champion

 Welcome back to the Vault! I am playing in another doubles tournament next weekend hosted by the legendary GR Meme Team. This time I'm taking the Iron Warriors alongside my partners Traitor Guard, so a very thematic pairing!

I'm running a Legionnaire heavy list backed up with some tanks and transports. For my Warlord I'm trying out an Exalted Champion as he gives out some tasty buffs to his unit for both shooting and melee. 

I've kitbashed my Champion from a Chosen with some Havoc and Warpsmith bits and I'm pretty pleased with the results. His little plasma gun counts as his combi-weapon and the choppy axes count as his exalted weapon. I hope he's suitably effective on the tabletop!

Golden Gaming: Adeptus Custodes ready for battle

Welcome back to the Vault! Next weekend is First Founding's Doubles tournament and I will be attending with my shiny Golden Boys aka The Adeptus Custodes.

Work has been hectic this month but I have managed to find the time to finish up this small but lethal force. Let's have a look at the list!
