Painting: LoTR and orks.

Ok, I don't have pics yet but I do have some news.

Orks: I have started painting my warboss, I don't know what to call him yet though. The whole ork clan will either be called the Blood ----- (-= insert name) or the skull smashers, any ideas?

LoTR: Right, so me and my mate will eventually get into LoTR (after I have done marines, got a decent amount od Orks and Warriors of chaos (my fantasy army)) I have already painted Legolas and Merry which I got free from a mate and I may slowly build my collection.

Fantasy: Like above I have decided to get some Warriors of Chaos.

40k: Marines are proceding, I need to finish a tac squad then prime and paint 2 rhinos, 2 speeders, 5 assault marines and 5 scouts then Marines are finsihed and I can move onto orks and WoC.

Rambles: the first (Those gamers that cant play but wont accept tat you can).

Hi guys, this is the first of what I hope to be many rambles where I am basically just going to talk on a certain subject. This time its those gamers that haven't quite got a grasp for the rules and will not accept that you can tell them more about their codex than they no.

The other day I ran into one such gamer, he was running Necrons and fighting my marines, I ended up having to leave the game half way through but thats not the point. I know pretty much all my stats for all my marines, many of the eldar stats, some of the necron stats, many of the guard stats and a few other scattered stats. He didn't know the strength of a gauss blaster or even a gauss flayer, I did but he insisted on going into his codex, then he didn't know where the summary page in his codex was.

Throughout the game he must have spent 45 mins doing his army list and looking in his codex, plus he kept touching my models while I wrote my army list making me take longer.

Overall I just don't like this trait in people, I don't mean to sound arrogant but it is just my views on this type of people (these are just the thing I dislike as well).

Converting: Scouts and updates.

Hi guys, this is a propper update:

These guys are the AoBR termies and they are being painted like silver skulls to go with my crusade theme, my land raider will be adjusted to be silver skulls aswell.

Now for some WIP assault marines, I didn't give them running legs as I can find better uses for those.
Now for the scouts, this is just a straight out of the box dude.



Sorry about the blur but this is the side shot of a sergeant, the squad comp is a bit weird as I have 1 bolter scout, 1 shotgun scout, two bolt pistol and chainsword scouts and a heavy bolter scout already so this squad has 1 BP and CS, 2 bolters, 1 BP and PwrW, 1 combi plasma and PP guy.






And another shot where you can see the bolter bit of the built in shoulder mounted combi-plasma.




The other sergeant with a power weapon.











Next guy:
This chap has a shoulder mounted bolter (tutorial at a later date) a big ammo box with a tractor beam grapple and a tractor beamer, he also has a bolt pistol.











Now for the next guy. He has a shoulder mount a pistol and a little mechanicle loader (bit of a bolter).




And now for my dread which I have finally finished.



Thanks for reading this far and comments and critisms are wealcom, hope you like the models.

Salamanders: Long awaited update.

Hi, sorry for not posting for a while, I have a propper update now

This dread is nearly done the arms just need finishing.




I gave the metal a green wash so it looked old and over used.






Now for the cappy, he still needs some work.
One side of the power weapon, it is supposed to look like it is hot at the tip as it was forged through lava, I could get into that but I'll just say it's like lord of the rings when they make the ring only with more fire.

Now for the marines, this first one is the missile launcher dude, most of them don't have weapons or back packs.

This guy you have seen before.
Now for the sergeant. His face wash highlighted brown then washed black.

Sorry for the slight blur in this one.

All the shadows in these pics were natural, I hope you enjoy them.

News: Ron has returned to the Warp!

Now that Ron has left the FTW blogger group needs someone to take charge, now as others have said I think that we should spread the work, I would be happy to do the round tavles if everyone in the group sent me their E-mail by the address in the right corner of my blog, someone else needs to do the monthly thing and someone needs to do the new members and most of the E-mailing stuff, of course the people doing the round tables and challenges would do their own E-mailing and would post the results up on their blog. I think we should keep the name to remember and honour our founder.

Painting: Vang Kantra finally finished.

Hi, this is my second post today and it is here to show off the brand new, Vang Kantra.



An overall view of him to show his pose.
The banner and the arm: the arm started out as the arm that hols the barrel of the boltgun, first it was twisted at the bit between the shoulder and the arm, then at the elbow then the wrist and finally the hand was bent round to hold the banner, you can also see his bloody scrolls.

His red leg and blades of honour.


Now a pic of his mighty sword, it's name is Earthbreaker and it is made of the finest metal on terra mixed with minerals from DERT and forged in the fires Nocturne. The bike he rides has little streaks and notches, this is because his armour was forget in the same way as his sword, his bike is called Worldeater.
Now for some fluff: Vang is a biker with great tallent, he and a small squad of bikers were at first just ordinary marines, but then, when they met the Salamanders of the Dark Inferno they proved themselves worthy of great speed so they fought together like a power blade and struck fast at their opponents.
Also I have begun work on the sallies I have black reach and another tac squad primed and I have started basecoating.
Make shure you read todays other post bellow.

Terrain: More, more, more/ Salamanders: Reedeemer pics.

Hi, guys, these are some pics of the new reedeemer, I put on a multi-melta so when it gets close it can still cause harm.











As you can see the sponsons are at the front.



This is the first piece of terrain, it hides units pretty well and could be considered difficult terrain.






The back



Another wall like piece that could fill a gap or just sit there.








The frame was made from sprue.








Mini barricade.









Big simple barricade.


A raised platform big enough for you to comfortably fit a 10 man squad or some heavy stuff up there.






Below is a bunker the front is made out of and old CD drive cover.



And now is the proof of the starter set, it doesn't have the marines in.


A view of the terrain.
Trees.And it did come with 20 dark eldar which I can use as dead on bases and such.
