Thanks for all the kind words all, I really appreciate the support. I don't have anything to share other than an item that just made it onto my wish list. This guy is coming out from FW here in the near future and can be included in a daemon army(of which I have one in the works)!!!!!

mmmmmmmmm...... Decimator Daemon Engine. Probably going to have a Mark of Nurgle with lots of dakka.

I feel both the need to purchase and paint one of those... and to sculpt something remarkably similar ;)

I second that Mike... despite the fact that I don't have anything chaos related, I am strangely drawn to the sheer awesomeness of that model...

Dez showed him to me this morning. Yes. He is super cool. I also told Dez that he needs at least one... He would also look good in my newly forming CSM army

Lots of details to sort out still tonight, as well as the base, so hopefully and evening's progress will see him finished!

Thanks!

Don't own a Demon Engine yet, but it is definitely on the list of must haves.

I feel compelled to make a diorama of a Daemon Engine fighting a Contemptor Dread...

If you are so inclined:P I don't think that he is particularly nerdgasm inducing, but I do think that he turned out alright.

Well I had the model completely done, save the base about an hour ago, but for some reason when I wen't to wash my basing sand all of the basing material pulled away from the base, almost sending Rocinate tumbling to the floor. Anywho, I spent the better part of the last hour and a half waiting for glue to dry, wash to dry, and then glue to dry again. I am pleased to report that he is done!!!! I am bushed and the camera battery is charging, so pics will be up when I get home from work tomorrow.

As promised completed photos of Rocinate!

I am going to take a night tonight and get some personal painting done. The Army Painting Challenge over on Heresy has started up in full swing and for this year I will be continuing on with my Stunties. For March I will be doing a Dwarf Lord on an Oath Stone. I doubt this guy will ever see the field as the rules for the Oath Stone are just bad, but I love the model. I will be working on him tonight so I will post progress when I have it.

Critiques on Rocinate are most welcome as this is my first attempt at Brown armor. Would love to hear what you all think!
