Short Update

Here's a short painting update on the flowery menoth army:
A repenter and a heirophant. The white on the hierophant was trickier than I anticipated. This whole exaggerated contrast thing on the robes leaves very little room for error.

These guys are next. I'm a bit further done on the crusader while I post this. So far it's tempting to paint all my warjacks first since they're so easy.

The end line is starting to look a bit out of place now..

Growing Strong

Once again, it's been a while.

Last time, I talked about the new chaos book, a new campaign and how I was going to rebuild my army. Long story short: Dropped out of the campaign and the chaos marines are gathering dust.

My new focus during the past months has been my new Protectorate of Menoth warmachine army. As of today, everything in the army has been assembled and basecoated and some models even have their first coats of paint on them.
Kreos and a repenter (bases unfinished). I'm going to try and do a nice, pleasant floral pattern theme this time.
I've been having some games also as part of a Journeyman League with Niek (local press ganger/hobby hero). The games were really fun and made me want to get back into the Warmachine side of things. After I'm done with my Menoth, I plan on doing some work on my old Mercenary army in between projects as well.

To be honest, the past few months have been kind of a burn-out wargamingwise. I suppose everyone has them every once in a while, but it still makes me feels like crap when I think about all the unfinished armies and mini's I still have lying around the appartment that I haven't done anything with for over a month.

Not any more though. Weekly blog posts from now on.

I can do it, I can do it, I can do it.

I played Chaos Space Marines... before they were popular!

Long time no blog, folks. I would apologize for the lack of updates, but that would mean I'd have to repeat myself for about the hundreth time. So, I've decided not to. Instead of apologizing, I'm going to give a bit of an update about what happened during the past couple months. 

In case any of you were wondering what happened to the campaign that I was blogging about: it ended a while ago. I didn't really play any more battles in it either since the campaign took a bit of a break after the guy who ran it handed it over to someone else. It was during that break in the campaign that me and my girlfriend decided we wanted to start renting an appartment. This effectively took me out of the hobby for a couple of months and I completely missed the end of the campaign. 

Not to worry though! A new campaign will be starting up this friday. I already had some great idea's for a new armylist. The armylist needs a lot of things that were not a part of my previous list. The whole rhino setup I used to have is simply not effective in the new edition. Also, with the new Chaos book there are better uses for my points. For now I've decided on a strategy that uses big 20 man chaos space marine units with plasma that are led by fearless HQ's. I'm also going to use two small units of melta-raptors and 20 cultists, divided into 2 units of 10 or 4 units of 5 (haven't quite decided yet). Don't know what else I'm going to use to flesh out the list yet, but this is going to be the basic framework. The following pictures show some of my attempts to modify some of my old marines to fit into the new list.

 Go, Bitz Box Go!

That'll be all for now, folks! I've spent to much time on this blog already and not enough time working on the army. I've also made a renewed effort to practice the guitar more often and I've been hooked on Pokémon White 2 as if my life depended on it.

If only Warhammer was more like Pokémon... (I would be able to fix my army on the way to work)
