Got to play in the Fate of Konor campaign on Friday. I was able to get in two games, one at 1,500 and one at 2,000. Unfortunately, both against Tau. Or fortunently, since neither one of them could kill my units of cultists with the Tide of Traitors strategem continuously replacing them. Abaddon is also hilariously punchy still.

Game 1: 2,000 pts, Fate of Konor mission 5. Result-
Chaos victory.

Figured out how to differentiate different units of cultists: Chaos stars! Still short 2 Cultist Champions, but hopefully I'll be able to change that.

Painted up all the different types of close combat cultists to get a feel for it.

Guess what I've got this week- more Cultists! That picture I took of the full unit was awful, so I took another picture to make it look better. I also ruined some of my Cultists with my varnish as well.

I love the Chaos versions of the Reaver and Warhound. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

Did assembly on the torso today in two stages- the center fans, and the other reactor half. The next thing I have to do is still holes into the sides of the torso to attach the weapon mounts. I'm going to magnetize the weapon arms on him, so I can have all the weapon options eventually. The next thing I'd like to get is a plasma blastgun and a Vulcan megabolter for carapace weapons, and maybe a melta cannon. Currently, I've got an apocalypse missile launcher, a gatling blaster, and a chaos power claw.

Took stock on all the parts of the Reaver, and I still have everything over a year later. Honestly, that's what I was most afraid of.

Painted up the faceplate this weekend, and man, ice forgotten how big he is. I'm going to have to get some cheap brushes for all these flat areas.

Also got to play a few games with a buddy of mine who's also getting back into the hobby. In the last couple of weeks, he's painted up the last parts of his army, including an Obelisk (and that thing is mean as hell on the tabletop).

With Irma looming over the state, I'm gonna do as much as I can before the storm hits. Thankfully, since it's supposed to skirt the coast instead of making mincemeat of the state, I might only lose power for a day or two.

Some more work on World Burner's head; it's now complete:

And the bases that are left. The ones on the right are complete, the ones in the center are still being worked on, and the ones on the left haven't got a basecoat yet:

Just a brief update after Irma:

Still no power, so that means no painting until that's fixed, since I've been staying until almost dark since Monday to help recovery. The Econolockhatchee river went up ten feet from Friday to Monday, and flooding along its bank is rampant.

Hopefully I'll be able to do some painting soon. I'll be taking tomorrow off since I've been getting sick. I'll try to update soon.

I'm back to a normal schedule and with power, so that means I'm going to try and update regularly. I finally finished that second squad of cultists, giving me two finished units of 30 to use with Abaddon. I wish I could.use them other than with him, but the lack of ability to mitigate morale losses forces his usage. I might try 6 units of ten when I'm using the Biker or Juggernaut Lords, and run a Battalion detachment or two doing so.

I ordered three base sets for sector Imperialis, but they've yet to arrive. If anyone is interested in trading for the 90mm ovals or the 40mm round bases for 25mm or ones or Chaos Space Marines heads, please let me know. I'm going to have way too many, to the tune of 60 or so.

60 Cultists and the only thing making them good:

They look great though, I really like the leather masks. Remind me of some of the stuff from the Gaunt's ghosts books.

Got a copy of Dark Vengeance to get Cultist champions and to use the Chosen as Exalted Champions. I didn't know this, but apparently the seventh edition version of it came with the Aspiring Champion model, which is pretty nifty. Another friend mine is starting to take the plunge into the hobby, and after I assemble and clean up the Dark Angels models, I'll be gifting those to him (he loves the idea of paranoid Space Marines).

Oh, and I spilled all of my Sepia wash today, so no more inking until Friday when I go to play games. Hopefully the Forge World index comes so I can finally use my Hell Blades.

I'll have pictures later this week, but I've been assembling and painting like crazy lately.

Assembled an entire Dark Vengeance set over the week, and finished up what will be an Exalted Champion, and some Chaos Bikers. Gotta paint two more regular ones and I'll have a unit of five.
