A very Iggy 2013! Now with pics.

Post by IGfanatic » Sat Jan 05, 2013 3:00 am

Hey hey!

I'm back and have armies to paint! Not just IG but now a blood angels army as well.

Pretty much I'm looking to have my blood angels fully painted this year along side darkned1ight. Maybe I'll paint my guard but eh...I have so many guardsmen that need to be repaired and painted and honestly they probably won't see the table for awhile. They never seem to win. It takes 2 platoons to kill a squad of marines in a forest or an entire mechanized compamy to take a hill. Maybe it is my dice but my blood angels (to be referred to as blood reavers from now on), are doing way better.

Also I will be playing lizardmen in an upcoming fantasy campaign if I can be bothered to re-learn 8th.

Blood Reavers: 261/1,500P
79th Cadian: 1,000/1,130P
79th Divided: 10/200P
Lizards: 0/0P

Maybe it is the fact that all the armies I face are cheese lists...

By the way, you up for a bit of a paint-a-thon tomorrow? I'll be home around 5pm, so your 7?

So I recently got a land speeder and have since built it and have almost finished painting it.

I made a 550 point strike force that looks nice and I really want to paint so over the last 3 days I have painted 4 1/2 tac marines, started the assault marine sargeant, finish my captain, nearly complete the priest of the force and get the majority of the speeder done, just details and touch ups left.

For those interested the list is...

Captain with thunder hammer and jump pack

Priest with combi-plasma

5 tactical marines with plasma pistol sarge
5 assault marines with infernus pistol, and sarge with power weapon storm shield

Land Speeder with assault cannon

Off the top of my head it comes out to either 545 or 550 points.

Now with febuary coming up I'll be doing a drop pod or two along with a librarian and maybe start my valkyrie.

Also picked up Helsreach because I wanted a new book and Sabbat worlds to maybe get my interest back to guard to at least paint them but I ended up loving Black Templars. So I may paint up on marine as a BT to see if I like the scheme on the table top. It may be my late 2013/early 2014 army.

Expect pics thursday/friday.

I haven't read the Sabbat Worlds yet, but I just got back into Gaunts Ghosts as I have yet to read Salvations Reach. They're such good books!

Oh and good to hear about the painting too :P

Helsreach was a great read, also decided my next army once I have 3,000ish points of BA. :3 so over the last week I have painted...

-8 tac marines (5 done, 2 mostly done, 1 primed)
-1 priest (mostly done)
-1 captain
-1 land speeder (mostly done)
-1 librarian (mostly done)
-1 death company (mostly done)
-1 black templar neophyte (mostly done)
-1 drop pod (just started)
-1 Sternguard (half done)

So this month I need to finish the drop pod and librarian at least for the tale of two gamers and painting deathmatch, I would like to finish the rest stated above but it all depends on time between school, homework and videogames/social life. :3

Also got a job at the school concession so I can save my money instead of using it for food. :D Also getting a tactical box saturday so I can finish off my tac squad, and sternguard.

2 marines
4 sternguard

So I don't know what I'll do with the other 4. :/
