Anyone online right now?

Seriously bored tonight. I should go sleep or whatever, but I decided that since I spent two hours figuring out how to broadcast me drawing stuff online, I figure I'll do that.

It's not space marines stuff, it's my anime/manga stuff.

If your interested, it's here:

Stuff and titans.

Okay, so after waiting for months, I finally got some stuff in.

Project Primarch now has about 3/4ths of all the models needed. I should ideally get the rest by next weekend, but I've said that before.. Still waiting for Alpharius, Omegon, Vulkan, Mortarion, and maybe one more? I forget.

Got the plasma guns. The two command squads will get kitted up with them soon. Kinda a shame that I probably won't be using the command squads because of this fun idea with the honour guards.. Oh well. For smaller games they shall be my fluffy indulgence.

I got an Iron Warriors Warsmith/Iron Father/whatever they are calling him now. I'm going to use him as a Chronus standin (I hate the model for Chronus, dunno why) and frankly, the model is awesome. There's a picture of him on the GW site and it doesn't do it justice. Hopefully my paintjob will. He'll be hailing from the Silver Skulls chapter, as I already have an Iron Warriors marine in my Enclave.

Anywho, I was rereading Imperial Armour 3, and after slogging my way through so many typos and grammatical errors, I ended up reading the entry for the Warhound titan. So, I know at least one of my readers will like this next bit (hey Gotthammer!)

I personally find the Warhound to be kind of silly, but I do like it's weapons. Near as I can tell, this is how they break down in terms of gaming..

Turbo lazer: You can take up to 3 on each arm. It has the longest range (72") the highest strength, and it's the only one with Barrage. This would be my choice for a titan if I were to get one.

Plasma blastgun: With that name, you'd hope for more. This might be the lowest scoring weapon for me. Decent strength, ordinance, and titan killer, yes. But.. I dunno. I just don't like plasma. It looks cool, but never seems to get the job done for me.. This would be my third best choice.

Inferno gun: Okay, now we're onto something interesting. One of the two shortest ranges, yes, but against swarming armies this thing would be fairly devastating. No cover saves, you have to attack the most you can. It's got some good potential there. Second best choice.

Vulcan mega bolter: Again, a fancy name and not much else. Ten shots, rending, if you roll a 6 they die, but really.. Titans aren't for anti infantry. If they are, you want to hit more than 10 dudes, cause the law of the dice says your only getting like two 6's. If your fighting against space marines, then they'll probably shrug off the rest of those wounds. Might be good for taking down vehicles, but I'd use the turbo lazers for that instead.. I think this one isn't worth considering.

Heavy twin linked update

Some people are pros when it comes to uploading pictures on here. They'll practically collage them. I have no idea how to do that, so hopefully you'll enjoy these despite the crappy formatting.

Leman Russ, Night Haunter, Magnus the Red, Fulgrim, Coloured (mostly) Fulgrim, and the wasteland pattern vindicator. I hope to have the basilisk/vindicator done soon, so I can get it painted up already.

Apologies, I guess

Hey. I feel I should probably apologize to you watchers. I said I was going to update last time, and then promptly forgot. Well, less forgot, more that I got utterly overwhelmed with work.

So here's the score. I'm going to update this thing in about 2 hours. And I don't just mean a little update. I mean, an 'oops I dinged your car, let me buy you a new one' kind of update. You'll be getting your money's worth. Given that you pay nothing anyway, that kinda means you'll get even more? I guess. I dunno.

So, other than working myself to death, what's been going on?
Started my honour guard squads. My Enclave is going to be using the Marnus Calgar rules for it's chapter master, which means 3 honour guard squads (and eventually 3 rhinos or something..) I already had one, made up of 9 Dark Elf executioners. These will be done up to look like Adeptus Custodes. So what does that leave for the other 21 models?


More specifically, project primarch. If your on the B&C, you might have seen this thread pop up about a week or two ago:

I'm going to make a model of each of the 21 primarchs, and a portrait of each.

I've also entered the model/portrait of Fulgrim into the LPC (librarium painting challenge) on the B&C also, so that will be the first primarch that will be fully finished.

Let's see, I also have one of the basilisks (they'll be used as vindicators) nearly done modelling. I've been mostly ignoring it. I also got a valkyrie. I apparently got the transport one by mistake.. I meant to get the one with the lazcannons so I could use it as a predator. I can still do that, it's just trickier now. I'd have to make a fancy base.

So, yes, update in about 2 hours. See you around 930.
