Harbinger of Menoth Commission

This beauty is just waiting to hear back from the client.

The trim on the armor is a bright gold color, not silver as it appears in the picture.  I'm slowly working on doing better pictures, but the metallics I use are HIGHLY reflective and difficult to take pictures of.  I'm going to be getting some better lights soon as these energy saving fluorescent bulbs just aren't cutting it. 





Eldar Striking Scorpions Commission!! - FINISHED!!

The Eldar Striking Scorpions are finished!  All that was left on them were the gun barrels on the helmets and the gem effects.

New Photos of the Word Bearers!

I wanted to post some pictures of some works in progress from an army I'm building for my own personal use.  It was originally going to be an eBay army, but the Army Painter primer went on MUCH too thick, and I didn't want to sell the end results.  I shrugged and continued on with the painting deciding that it would be used as my fun army.

Group shot of a small unit of Word Bearers armed with bolters and missile launchers lead by their power fist toting commanding officer.














Here are two of the missile launcher equipped Word Bearers



And the three Black Acolytes that lead this particular band of Word Bearers.

Necrons Arrive at Other Worlds!

So our shipment of Necrons arrived at the shop i work at so I decided to film my childish glee.

I also picked up the codex and will be frantically reading through it and digesting the contents.  I hope to have a thought/review/comments video up in the next couple of days.

Anyhoo, enioy the video!

I've Joined The Independent Character's Hobby Challenge!

So I've joined the Independent Character's Hobby Challenge and I'm supposed to post periodic updates on their forums on the progrees of the amry, so I thought that I would go ahead and do the same on the other forums I frequent.

The army is going to be painted as a Word Bearers chaos marine list.  Inspiration for this army list was the Chapter of the Crimson Mask.  "The Crimson Mask Chapter - Commanded by Chapter Master Rukis, battle-brothers of this Chapter were known to have the faceplate of their helmets wrought to resemble fearsome red-skinned snarling creature (daemons)." Warhammer 40k wiki

I wanted to model an army that both reflected the close relationship that the Word Bearers have with daemons and what would happen if most of the marines partially melded with daemons.  So most of these models will have at least one part from the possessed marine kits to reflect that.

Here's the 1850 list and the sideboard
