More Dark Vengeance!

My friend Jason has been hard at work over the last week just plowing through the Imperial half of the new starter set.  Been really cool getting update pics on how things are shaping up. He recently sent me some pics of his completed Librarian (one of my fav Marine sculpts) and the Deathwing Squad.  Being someone who is more drawn to "the dark side" I am really interested to see how the Chaos (or "Chowse" as Jason calls it) turns out.

Ghost Ark...Complete!

So here is the final model in my 1500pts list, the mighty Ghost Ark. I have to say this thing is the biggest hog ever to build and paint. Building it took roughly 5 hours and painting it was about another 13. Despite all of that I love the form and its size as it makes a great center piece for this army.

Next Up: I am going to do some full army shots of the Necrons and a small write up to go with it including my final army lists and a little blurb on my limited experience with this army!

Tomb Blades Complete!

These were one of the sets of models that made me decide that I really wanted to play Necrons. I just loved the overall form and how they look genuinely alien and bizzare. They also carry through the "circular" aesthetic that the vehicles have very nicely which  love. I armed mine with Particle Casters so they would be a super cheap throw away unit but still deadly enough that the enemy would HAVE to deal with them (three super mobile, str 6 templates will do that...guard heavy weapon teams beware lol). The other reason for their lay out is that they only come in boxes of three but have a max unit size of five so I didnt want to waste one trying to max out the unit, so staying at three is where its at. So, here they are.

Next Up: The last model in the army...the mighty Ghost Ark!

Barges...of Annihilation! Complete!

As promised here are both Barges complete with their finished bases. I actually managed to finish both of these in one shot over a weekend which I was really proud about. Overall they were really enjoyable to paint (as with the rest of the army). If I had one tip for people starting their own Annihilation Barges it would be don't glue in the Drivers or the Gun before you paint it. I was smart and just left the gun as it's own piece which was a massive help and really wish I did that for the drivers.

Up Next: Tomb Blades!

Vengeance...that is DARK!

Literally all my friends have picked this set up and have started in on the fantastic models. They are easily the best starter set models save maybe Space Hulk I have ever seen. As anyone who has read this blog for any amount of time will guess there isn't a whole lot for Ghoulio here as I don't play Marines or Chaos.

With that in mind my friends have been sending me pics as they are progressing through the set and I have been very impressed with the stuff they have been doing. Slopes (one of the contributors of Legio) is almost finished his Hell Brute which is great and I cant wait to see. Until he posts that I wanted to show off my friend Jason's finished Dark Angels Tactical Squad. I love how this unit turned out and was probably the first time I actually said the words "Your Space Marines look should totally start an army of them". It was so cool in fact I wanted to share it on the blog. So here it is:

Necron Royalty...Complete!

Here is a quick update of the full Royal Court including the Overlord for this army. One thing I noticed once I built the regular Lord is that his pose is the exact same as the Overlord which I kind of feel like a bonehead about. Ah well, nothing I can do about it now lol. I have added the two tone grass which I am really liking as it helps punch up an otherwise somewhat boring base and add some visual interest to the models.



Full Court

Next Up: Barges.....of ANNIHILATION!!!!

Large Warrior Squad Complete!

I am a bit behind on posting pics for this army. Currently I am at the point where I just need to put the finishing touches on my Ghost Ark and my 1500pts force is totally painted. I just need to get a bit more time in the evenings to get some pics taken lol. Over the next two weeks I will get pics all the different units up as well as a full army pic complete with the army list. So here is my big block of 20 Warriors!
