Shopping trip

Holy crap, did I spend money today.

The Enclave are going to have a field day when all this stuff is done. I just need to figure out how I'm using all of this stuff.

Today I got: Chapter master, 5 terminators, 2 scouts, 2 mechaniks (I'm thinking either just character models or tech servitors) 11 tactical marines.

The terminators will go to finishing off the Tactical Terminators squad (rounding it off to 10 men)

The tactical marines will go to the other two tactical squads, the remainder, I'm not sure about. Maybe make a 4th? We'll see.

The scouts were just too great of a deal to pass up, I'm not sure if I'll use them for anything.

The mechaniks (warmachine khador to be specific) are going to be examples of my Enclave's divergence from other vanilla chapters. Basically, because they are short staffed, any potential marines who show significant prowess in non-military things (medicine, machinery, etc) become specialists. They still get military training but provide a niche service to the chapter instead of waging war.

The small dilemma is; I now have two chapter masters for the SAME chapter. One in artificier armour, one in terminator. I'll probably use the artificier one more, the new codex doesn't actually LET me make the terminator model be WYSIWYG.

Anywho, I hate this time of year. Birthday sucked, my birthday dinner has been put off three times now. I think if I want to go have a birthday dinner, I'll have to go walk to the nearest restaraunt and buy it myself.

I'll try to get some work done on the army this week, and maybe even snap a few photos of a finished squad.

The Lamenters meet the Great Pumpkin (Charlie Brown)

So, I kinda forgot to upload this. More accurately, it wasn't finished being coloured until about the 19th of november. colouring takes alot longer than drawing.

Those four are actually models from my Lamenters army. I just need to model the power flamingo.

Little update

I forgot to upload this back when the tournament was going on, I guess I misplaced it or something.

Anyway. After the generally crushing defeat, I've decided to retool my Enclave army. As it currently stands, I think it's going to end up something like this:

Hq: Chapter master

Troop 1: 10 man tactical, flamer, missile launcher, razorback
Troop 2: 10 man tactical, flamer, missile launcher, razorback
Troop 3: 10 man tactical, flamer, missile launcher, razorback
Troop 4: 10 man tactical, flamer, missile launcher, razorback
Troop 5: 10 man shotgun scouts
Troop 6: 10 man sniper scouts, Telion, missile launcher

Fast Attack 1: Land speeder typoon
Fast Attack 2: Maybe bikes with flamers
Fast Attack 3: Maybe more bikes with flamers

Elites 1: 5 Tactical terminators with heavy flamer
Elites 2: Dreadnaught with two twin linked autocannons
Elites 3: Maybe an ironclad or assault terminators with super sledges..

Heavy support 1: Predator with lazcannon sponsons, twin linked lazcannon turret
Heavy support 2: Thunderfire cannon maybe
Heavy support 3: Vindicator maybe

This is still up in the air, but we'll see how it goes.

And now, a modelling question for you all; how would one go about attaching a skyshield defense platform to something? And what would you suggest I attach it to? I have plans to make my Enclave base look really cool, but I need it to be based on something.
