  1. A brief progress update. My Night Lords Raptorkin have been primed and drybrushed with Boltgun Metal. The next step is to add the blue basecoat and create chipped weathering effects with my trusty AK Interactive Worn Effects Acrylic Fluid. 🙂
  2. It's great seeing people's progress! Here is my pledge for July: 1 Night Lords Chaos Sorcer with jumppack and 5 of the 10 Night Lords Warp Talons you see below. A closeup of 1 of the 5 Warp Talons I shall paint this month Night Lords, "The quick and the dead."
  3. Yeah, I played an Admech player last month. It was a fun game and he had taken the time to make little tokens for all his rules. This helped a bit. But I was still horribly confused with their rules. The Admech player said that the day before he had been to a tournament. He said he had a great deal of difficulty keeping track of all the rules. He also said that, even with his little tokens, his 3 opponents were all really confused.
  4. I don't really know what I'll be painting this summer so I cannot set a goal for myself just yet. However, this week I finally did complete a goal I set for myself: paint all my miniatures! After many many years, my backlog of unpainted miniatures has finally gone from hundreds to 0 with the completion of these 2 terrain pieces, a couple of desert-themed ruins: This is a set of ruins from Pegasus And this is a set of Sector Imperialis Ruins from GW Here are some photos of my terrain with my Tallarn Imperial Guard and my Nostroman 9th Renegades and Heretics Chaos Militia I wonder what project I'll work on next? I'll make a pledge here once I've figured out what my next project is. At any rate, I'll stick to completing 1 project before starting the next one. Enjoy the pictures!
  5. Hello everyone, I got in a game this weekend using my Renegades and Heretics Chaos Militia force. It was a fun 1,000 point game against a great AdMech opponent. We played at Wizard's Keep Games in Renton, WA. Wizard's Keep is hosting a 1,000 point 40K League. If any of your are interested, the league just started up. While the forces of the Renegades and Heretics lost, the game was awesome! Here are some photos.

  6. I I remember that. I brought my Tallarns to that GT, it was something like 2003 or 2004. And when one of the Last Chancers (Fingers or Monkeywrench) stole an enemy vehicle the TO's announced it over the intercom. Everyone in the hall started cheering. Good times!
  7. Hello all, As always, there are some nice models here! I recently managed to finish 3 terrain pieces: A Pegasus Techbridge An old Necromunda tower And an out of production Forgeworld emplacement I used salt and hairspray chipping on them. I've never used that technique before. I think the results are decent.
  8. Hello all, Now that the Covid quarantine restrictions are mellowing and most folks I know have their vaccine shots, the 40k community is returning to the King County area in Washington. I recently got my 2 first games of 9th edition. I really enjoyed both games. I really like this edition, the mechanics seem quite smooth. I managed to win both games. Which is odd because I only won 6 games last edition and I lost 28 games last edition. I suspect that my melee-heavy and troops-heavy Chaos armies might do better this edition, what with the smaller board sizes and the fact that opponents cannot camp at the back with gunlines as effectively. Here are a half dozen photos from the 2 games. In one game it was my Night Lords against Necrons and in the other game it was my World Eaters against Death Guard. A smaller pic of a really nasty Necron unit bashing in my Night Lords Chaos Lord, Duvalier Nightfall Luckily the Raptors would get away. And thanks to the Night Lords "Hit and Run" stratagem they were able to charge the warriors again after leaping out of combat. Night Lords First Claw Chaos Marine Squad dukes it out with Scarabs on an objective I've always liked taking troops-heavy lists, not that CSM do much, and this edition seems to really reward this approach. World Eaters Bezerker Bear Claw says hi to a Flail of Corruption Dave the Dreadnought, er World Eaters Chaos Helbrute, manages to take out a Lord of Contagion (I was lucky) World Eaters Chaos Marine Ghoulghast gets crumped by a Plague Marine Fun fact kids, don't charge Plague Marines with Chaos Marines. What was I thinking? World Eaters Chaos Lord Constantine is tarpitted by Pox Walkers He was equipped with Angron's old relic the Gorefather. Suffice it to say this was not the most glorious use of Gorefather. Enjoy the pics!
  9. Yes! A rematch would be fun indeed. Your Tanith are coming along nicely. During my COVID quarantine last year, I finally finished all my Chaos Guard: I too will have to buy the box of Tanith to add to my Tallarn army.
  10. Hello everyone, I've started working on my last five models. They are all terrain pieces that I will paint up in a desert style. Forgeworld Emplacement Pegasus Techbridge Necromunda Tower Ruins made from various and sundry, including GW Ruins Two traitor Leman Russes with Chaos Militia infantry support stand guard on Pharos VII's northern hive. The units in this pict are thought to be members of the Nostroman 9th Renegades and Heretics mercenary company. More ruins made from various and sundry, including Pegasus ruins Two loyalist Leman Russes with Tallarn infantry support, also operating on Pharos VII's northern hive. These tanks were detached from the Cadian 1223rd Armored Company to the Tallarn 23rd Infantry Regiment. As such, they have been painted in customary Tallarn desert schemes. A scheme which blended in well with Pharos VII's northern deserts. To give you all a sense of what the terrain will look like when completed, here are a couple of completed desert-colored terrain pieces I plan to try some new techniques with these 5 pieces though: oil washes, salt and hairspray weathering, lighting using LEDs, and a few small printed propaganda posters. And, for a final image, autumn is in full swing up here in Kirkland, WA. Here is a view from my painting table from a couple of weeks ago. I hope to finish these 5 models by the end of the year. Which will mean all my models are painted! I'm not sure what my next project will be, possibly Warp Talons. I've always wanted a squad. Evil Edward Scissorhands jumppack infantry ripping holes into realspace with their claws seem so Night Lordsy (except for the part about them being part daemon). 🙂
  11. Hello everyone, After 4 months, I finally managed to finish another 6 models last week. I completed a batch of 5 Possessed Chaos Marines and a character who can be used as a Chaos Lord, Master of Possession, etc. They are all members of my Warpborn Chaos warband. With the completion of these models, I've finished painting all my unpainted Chaos models. And I only have 4 items left to paint until all my models are painted. Yay! Here are some photos: Iart, Baruk, Tal Arthul, Bara, Layak, and Talos (yes, I'm reading Aaron Dempsky-Bowden's excellent Night Lords trilogy) Bara Baruk Talos, her/his (it's Slaaneshi after all) back is magnetized in case I want to add a jumppack and the hand holding the hammer is magnetized It is Talos who liberated the Warpborn from their Dark Mechanicus creators within the warp! All praise Talos! Tal Arthul And since I've finally finshed up all my CSM (I hope to buy and paint up some Warp Talons early next year) I thought I'd set up all my little dudes and dudettes... Talos' Warpborn on the left, then Evita's Deathguard, Azrath's World Eaters (who some of you saw at OFCC in 2018), and Duvalier's Night Lords And my favorite CSM model of all, Ninja Joe Enjoy the pics! Warpborn, "I feel the warp overtaking me!" Death Guard, "Something is rotten in Denmark." World Eaters, "Kill! Maim! Burn!" Night Lords, "The quick and the dead."
  12. Hi Westrider, Both plastic Chaos Terminators are from the plastic Sorcer/Chaos Lord kit so it's hard to say whether the new plastic termies are bigger. 🙂 Sadly, I don't own any plastic regular Chaos Terminators so I don't know whether they are larger than the old metal sculpts. Here's an eye level view of all my termies though, the lord/sorc ones are definitely taller (although they are also on larger bases)
  13. Hello everyone, I recently finished up 5 Chaos Marine models: 1 World Eaters Terminator, 3 Night Lords Terminators, and 1 Greater Possessed painted in the colors of my custom warband, the Warpborn. Here are the pictures: The four Chaos termies, they all have magnetized arms so I can swap out weapons if need be... A closeup of the World Eater Terminator, BloodGrin, with pair of lightning claws Bloodgrin with pair of power swords Sarrin, his head is magnetized so I can run his as a regular Chaos Terminator Or as a Chaos Sorcerer in Terminator Armor... Kavatar, Chaos Terminator Mirac, Chaos Terminator Here are all 6 Night Lords Chaos Terminators. The plan is to use NightClaws as a Chaos Lord in Terminator Armor with the Claws of the Black Hunt. Here is a photo of all 14 of my Chaos Terminators: 6 Night Lords, 1 World Eater, and 7 Death Guard I also rebased a Death-Guard Chaos Sorcerer, Resk Jadath, Warpborn Greater Possessed Jadath and Spike Since I got into this hobby 20 years ago, I've always wanted to have all my projects completed except for my current project. The logic being that I buy 1 project, complete it, and then I'm free to buy another project. Sadly, this goal has remained a holy grail of sorts as I kept buying miniatures over the years. But for the last 5 or 6 years I've curtailed my miniatures buying, often forcing myself to finish 3 projects before I can buy a new one. Now I'm down to owning only 16 unpainted miniatures which is a bit better than the 200 or so unpainted miniatures I had a decade ago! I hope to have them all completed by the end of this summer. Then I can finally buy a new project: a squad of Night Lords Warp Talons. Here are photos of all 16 remaining unpainted models Thanks for looking at my pics!
  14. It's nice to see everyone's progress. I recently finished up 5 Chaos Marine models: 1 World Eaters Terminator, 3 Night Lords Terminators, and 1 Greater Possessed painted in the colors of my custom warband, the Warpborn. Here are the pictures: The four Chaos termies, they all have magnetized arms so I can swap out weapons if need be...
