I passed the turn, he looked at what he had remaining and said "Let's call it and go make a deal." 

So now I dont own a tau army and do own a chaos army. Again. For the 4th time.

So does that mean you sold your TAU? Just because they were successful...

I mean kinda? I've never liked tau. Their looks, back story, models, everything. But I acquired a bunch in a trade. Not enough to make a decent 2k army but a decent amount and I added to them to make what I wanted. Well I played them and they kinda grew on me playwise.

However my intention had always been, fix them, add to them sell/trade them. So I crushed my play group a few times, started a bidding war and got a chaos army.

So now they are extremely happy, I'm kinda happy (I do love me some Magnus & Morty) and I came out way ahead on the deal (they knew they were getting the bad end of the deal but they still wanted it. I kinda didn't want chaos unless I was getting a good deal so... ehh).

Wow... I cant let this thread die! It's the only thing that's keeps the willingness to paint going. Mostly cause I feel ashamed after seeing so many batreps with fully painted armies...

Anywhoo, same eldar opponent, same eldar list against;

Nurgle!

Epididymis, DP, HoN

6x plague drones

2x 30 plaguebearers 

Every nurgling base in existence

Now the nurglings did their sneaky shenanigans and basically tied up the entire eldar army. After which the came became pretty boring. The eldars could't kill enough things. The nurglings are... well, nurglings. So the majority of the game was sitting on objectives and the eldar player realizing he couldn't score enough points or really do anything. And while the forces of nurgle got points, they really couldn't do anything either.

So...

Yea! I realized paint 750 of the same model will drive you insane, so I switched it to painting knights!

1 down, 5 to go... Man, that sound so much better than 33 down, 1000 to go..

I like that knight. Really turned out. Simple, but it looks great.

Yea I could do more things but I'm far to lazy. Although... maybe some actual highlights on the metal. It looks a bit flat.

But keeping it simple does cut down the painting time. That guy was like 6 hours?

I like it! Same basic combo as I used for my Renegade Knights with the purple and gold, tho yours is kind of lacking in fleshy bits and chitin and ichor and such 😉

Well I've got a custom SM chapter (the Swamp Donk'ies) and I'm kinda painting everything Imperium purple and bright green. It all started with an idea to make voodoo marines with crocodiles, voodoo fetishes, that deep south eerie magic feel. Then the back story manifested itself further with a horrible run on DoW 3 for my buddy.

Now I paint everything purple & green.

Painting knights is so easy! Even if they are only like 85% done they are still tabletop ready.

I almost did it! Unfortunately I dont think I can finish the 6th knight (stupid 2nd hand lancer). So my knight household is gonna be slightly smaller than expected.

This guy sucked though. No chainsword, no shoulder things, messed up paint. But he turned out ok.

The whole family! Currently...

Probably gonna run 2 Gallants, helverin with catachans and vultures.  Vultures may be nice now with so much orks running around.

Am I the only one that all these photos are broken links?

Umm they are linked to Imgur. It is the only way I know how to do it.

So maybe.

If you want, I can describe  the pictures to you. Kinda a service for link disabled. 🙂

Those vultures scared me until I realized they kill maybe 7 orks in a KFF, 8-9 outside a KFF. 

Definitely a scary list but I think it's manageable

Umm... Tallarn Vultures, so no negatives for moving and firing heavy weapons, +1 to hit for staffing run.

43 shots, 28 hits, 18 wounds, 15 dead orks, 12 with KFF. So about 30-45 dead orks a turn.

Orks are the main reason I'm taking vultures. That and they are awesome!

Missed the tallaran and forgot about strafing run. Teaches me to comment early in the morning. Hmmmmm

Vultures are Aeronautica Imperialis, they don't get Regimental traits.

That makes me sad... 

Still have that sweet bs 3+ if you hover though.

I guess that means they just go back to being catachans. For no reason really I guess.

Oh yea! That's right. Bifpod actually talked about that! 

Please hover? I would love to charge you. 

 

You could do the strike in death catachans. They did real work in a charity hammer game.

I mean... they are kinda disposable. They only need to clear some screens, maybe do some screening themselves, then die in a fiery explosion.
