An Iron Update

So, as always, life gets in the way during the run up to November/December.  But nonetheless, stuff has been happening for the 66th Grand Company and the point of this is to share what’s been happening.

Thing the first:

I had my arse handed to me.  Which is not unusual.  Deep striking imperial guard totally outgunned me.  Now, I can’t remember my list exactly; except I was trying out using chosen CSM squads as troops – as the black legion codex will let you do.  The reason I bring this up is it sort of compounds my more general thoughts about the CSM codex.  Namely, compared to imperial space marines, everything *seems* sort of expensive.  Does anyone else find this? Do I just have a bad list? Am I the only one who feels short of ‘tools’.

Thing the second:

I finally finished painting my defiler!

Isn’t he pretty… I mean I hated painting him, but I’m pleased with the final result.  He’s all packed away now; or at least until I have need to scrap an imperial knight (did happen – one round of combat XD opponent was not pleased).

Thing the third:

Terminators! I now have basecoated enough terminators to deploy a terminator annihilation force (WIP below)

Hopefully this helps with thing the first.

Thing the fourth:

I have some models that I’ve been jones-ing for: A Warsmith and a Warpsmith.  They’re both kitbashed and held together with copious amounts of bluetac.

There’s also a second Warpsmith kitbash that’s happening but the bluetac wasn’t playing ball so I couldn’t photograph it.  Now I just need to name the lot of them.

See ya next time
