its been a while since I've blog'ed anything, due to a number of reasons- however, like a Necron lord- I'm back!!
I've been pretty busy with a number of projects on the go, however I'd thought I'd share my current project, which had a run out over the weekend against Siph's Relictors.
SO the new force---- daemons!!
The decision was made a while ago to try something new, and to see how the force develops, I also wanted a force with lots of flexibility, whilst having the autonomy to be able to paint/convert as I felt fit. I did consider Chaos Space Marines, however having spent years painting power armour I decided not to go in that direction (yet)
I've gone headstrong into the army, and built a sizable force- (2670 points) some of these have been purchased via eBay, thus will need stripping, and starting again.
Below are some of the WIP, and I'll post as I complete these.....
The last few images are the eBay purchases- the plan is to re-paint these, and pin the wings/skulltaker into place. There are also 5 fleshhounds.
The force is developing quickly, so its time to start painting.. I'll post as the army develops!

Back in March, I wrote a post about starting a WFB Warriors of Chaos army. Well with Blog Wars a few months back and friends starting Grey Knight armies, my focus has mainly been on 40K, but I have recently got round to painting up some more WFB…et voila!
I am sticking with the Red/Gold theme for the entire army. In my head, it is Chaos Undivided, but it also doubles nicely as a Khorne dedicated army if needs be. It’s a nice change not having to paint tons of gaunts – although I do have a box with a couple of dozen Marauders that I need to get through.
More to come soon!

This is Marine 6 of Squad 2. His other squadmates can be found here.

To enable the swopping of such a large Missile Launcher Assembly, the pod will have to come apart. Above you can see the magnets for the five 'fins' and magnets drilled into the floor for attaching the central Missile Launcher Assembly. The FW Deathstorm pod comes with a sensor assembly for the deckhead and 5 sensors that go into the deck slots - both of these can remain when the pod is a Dreadnought Drop Pod and differentiate it from a standard troop Drop Pod. The magnets I am using are quite strong, but the resin is quite heavy so 5 were needed to hold it firmly and also for asthetic reasons when absent, the magnets on the decking will be equally spaced.

Here is my version of a Devastator Backpack, only one vent moved unlike the FW double vent swop.
Hope you like and feel free to comment - except about the frosting - honestly I tried to get rid, but unless I scrapped 5 marines and started again, it was here to stay.
