Looking through it, I really like Hell Blades now. A little pricier compared to before, but eight wounds to a pair of hull points is inifinitly preferable.

But man, Reaver Titans are incredibly powerful. 60 wounds, toughness ten, and a 3+/5++ along with potent void shields (starts at 3++ that be used against mortal wounds). And the weaponry. By the Dark Gods, a balanced load out can easily take on an equivalent points vaule and still be a very close game, if the titan doesn't just kill everything. And the Macro rules lets them annihilate other super heavies.

Got a 1/8" brass rod and 8x 1/2" magnets today, so I was in a frenzy doing more work on World Burner. Today marks an important first- she's capable of standing on her own now, torso and all. I've been painting those bikers at work on my lunch break, and I'll have pictures of them once they're finished.

Finished seating most of the magnets for the torso and limbs. I need to get 3/8" magnets to magnetize the gatling blaster so I can magnetize weapons in the future instead of entire arms, once I get around to purchasing a volcano cannon or a laser blaster. Next up is priming the torso and pistons.

More assembly done this week, along with the parts of the torso partially obstructed by armor plates, allowing me to affix said plates. The only parts that need glue now is the very top plate, and the hoses that go into the groin.

What you've done on it so far is really impressive. I was almost dead by the time I finished my Baneblade, I can only imagine the effort you've put into something this big. Definitely paying off already though, looks fantastic!

Compared to a Bameblade chassis, this model is so much more fun. There's so many little details everywhere and it breaks up the model enough that it never drags on. There's so much more to paint, but I can't be bothered to care about that, because I'm having too much fun.

Honestly, the only chore on this thing has been waiting for joints to cure so I can start working on it again.

Got more painting in finally, after dismally failing my pledge last week- another twenty cultists with autoguns! I now have 80 of them for my normal two large blobs with Abby.

I also got more trim work done on the Reaver. I finished base coating the grey portions of the armor, and worked on the trim on the torso.

Man, it's been a crazy couple of months. Between work, the holidays, and going under the knife, I haven't had much time for anything. I did figure out where I want to go with finishing my Chaos Space Marines army at least, though I'm not sure where I'm going to go after that (maybe AdMech?]. I do know that I want a six hundred power army for Apocalypse when it's all said and done however, so I came up with this list:
[+] Expand
Abaddon
4 Chaos Lord
2 Daemon Prince
2 Sorcerer
2 Dark Apostle
4 Exalted Champion

3x10 Chaos Marines w/Rhino
20 Chaos Space Marines
3x40 Chaos Cultists
4x20 Chaos Cultists

3x5 Chaos Terminators
10 Possessed w/ Rhino
5 Helbrutes

2x5 Chaos Bikers 18 325
2x5 Chaos Spawn
15 Raptors

3x5 Havocs
2x3 Obliterators
2 Defilers
3 Chaos Predators

4 Hell Blades

Chaos Reaver Titan

600 Power
15 HQ
11 Troops
9 Elites
5 Fast Attack
10 Heavy Support
4 Flyer
1 Lord of War
+20 Command points
The whole thing looks like it'll work together fairly well, and while I have no earthly clue what that works out to in matched play, that's not as important as it feeling like a cohesive army that also happens to fit inside the Nimitz case from Battlefoam (sans the Reaver, who gets a Pelican case).
