so i have decided that i am going to paint up some units to enter Golden Demon...
i know that i wont win anything... but i think it will be fun, so without further-ado, i present to you my plans for Golden Demon
- I am planning to enter a Blood Pact officer of some kind... maybe Damoguar Eyl from the new Blood Pact book, something that will be fun but will be ultimately simple to make
- i have two entries i shall work upon for this, both of which i have wanted to make for a while, the first:
A squad of Blood Pact Rough Riders, i'm thinking these will be on horse-back with shit loads of luggage, trophies, etc, etc
An Inquisitors Retinue, using one of the Gangs from Necromunda... we play quite a bit of Necro at the local club, and i like how i will be able to use the flexibility to create my retinue, not sure if this shall be Ravenor's or my own Inquisitor, however they shall defiantely be inspired by the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies
i am planning on entering an N20 Halftrack, inspired by Dave Taylor's trucks and N20, however i will obviously be putting my own twist on his inspiring design
very tempted to enter these two categories, using possibly Blood Pact and Tanith fighting each other, however this is very much undecided as of yet

i have finally got enough that i think is post worthy :) and its all BLOOD PACT#!
first up i have painted the first Stalk Tank, i envision the stalk tanks as the equivalent of sentinels especially with the new codex (Armoured Sentinels, Plasma Cannons, thank you GW). this is the cheapest model in the army, made mainly of plasticard and a few bits, and now the basic design is sorted, god help anyone who comes up against my army of Stalk Tanks (seriously considering about 30 minimum!)
note the battle damage on the leg, a fair few of my friends (those who aren't into the hobby have been like what the fuck is that, its seriously creepy so i think i got the unsettling nature of the stalk tank spot on :))
and one with some Infantry Support:
n I have been painting a few men, to ever expand the Pact, for both Heavy Weapons teams, (well i have one list i'm working on that has four heavy weapon squads with Rocket Launchers!) and normal infantry squads, however this is all work in progress many need touching up and finishing off, for example, i need to base EVERYTHING, and paint the loaders for the first heavy weapon team... so i have much to do, the following photos are of the rocket teams, and i'm too lazy to space stuff out, but each man has something different about him, one has tribal markings on his body armour, another has tattoos and the third has kill markings on the side of the Launcher
for the rocket launchers themselves i have just cut of the front plate to make them look a little more run down, i think this cause they look different to the imperial ones, let me know what you think, i am also intending to make some teams with RPGs instead of Tube Launchers, for something a bit different and to emphasise the scavenger nature of the pact, not this will be the same with the lasguns, flamers etc which i will have different types (yeah that means forgeworld!)
anyway i hope you guys have enjoyed this, next time i'll try to update a bit earlier, if not see you in another year!

i have a fair amout of work to do, the legs for example, i have 3 in the list, possible 4, i want to have one with a corpse hanging on chains on the front, where the Khorne symbol on this one. another with a poor guardsman crushed/impaled by one of the legs and the last im not sure about
onto some infantry, the first of 200 ;) just a basic squad with a Vox Caster and a Flamer:
lastly a picture of the squad and the stalk tank together, i'm pleased with the progress that i have made but its going to be a long road to completion...

these three are my favourite out of the Mob, i'm really pleased with how the hair on the guy with the shoota and the cloth on the gun barrel turned out
A couple of photos of the Big Shoota and the guy with the hair, what do you think? These guys shall be on a desert theme as can be seen on the Ork Nob which should look quite simple but effective
now dont worry people (i'm looking at you Rabidchild) i am working on my Pact, but due to this tournament, they will be on a back foot for a while, my night lords likewise, although i gave into temptation and built my Pre-Heresy Land Raider
i will post photos soon, once i have finished the last bits of the Raider, have some small conversion work to do on it...
and i'll post some photos of the pact

i've been quite busy recently, the AT-83 has hit a bit of a road bump, not sure if im going to carry on as i was or start again, need to have a bit of a think, but on to other news...
i have been painting away, soon i shall show you some of my blood pact i have been working on, just need to do a bit of touching up in places, thanks must go to rabidchild from Pick a Damn Army, those fallen legionnaire heads are really sweet, i will be sculpting more of my own though
also on the agenda are the Ork Boyz i have been painting up, i'm working on an army list at the moment, which is quite a nasty force. so far i have 10 Orks painted out of the 60 basic that i need
onto the Night Lords, i have started working on a new slaneesh character for my Chaos, he is going to be called the vengeful, but havent thought up his name yet, any suggestions then let me know, he is going to be used in a 1500pt tournament that i am running Ready to Run Models over the summer, this should be quite a fun little tournament with some quite high stakes so should be interesting. also on the Night Lords front, i bought a Pre-Heresy Land Raider, the first of several from Forge World, however they didnt send me all the bloody sprues so i have to wait to build my baby, i shall however keep you reguarly updated on this, i promise

Yeah, the Ork Battle Wagon, but there will no green-skins on this vehicle, just dirty traitor guard, and quite a few of them :-) hopefully it will go well, seeing Dave Taylor's blog has really inspired me to continue my pact and build them up into a vast vast army,
i want to have a large mechanised force, based around a company (maybe two) of AT-70 Reaver Battle Tanks, with supporting units of AT-83 Brigands, N20 Halftracks and maybe a platoon or two of mechanised Guard, this will of course be supported by a few captured imperial vehicles
anyway, once again i am rambling on far too much, i'll piss off now :)
feel free to add suggestions, not sure to use as the turret/main weapon as of yet, but i have a few ideas i can try...

Ok do not worry cause i am almost done, but first i want to show you one of my Rhino's as my Night Lords are completely (where possible) mounted in Rhino Transports:
The answer to the question you are asking is yes, yes that is a Blood Angel strapped to the front of a Night Lords Rhino, it was a pain to do but, one of my best mates collects Blood Angels and the reaction was more than worth it.
ooh, that last guy looks like he is seriously pissed off...

the first picture is of Anzael The Hated, a Night Lords Raptor Lord with Lightening Claws and the Mark of Slaanesh...
its an old photo which i did i a rush but i will eventually get round to re-posting him properly
Next up is the a group shot taken of my Blood Pact, featuring just some random pacters and an AT-70 Reaver named Mandatory Suicide (Thank you Slayer)
For my AT-70 Reavers I use the standard Basalisk Rules with the Armoured Crew Compartment and Track Guard upgrades...

this is mainly a post for my warhammer, however knowing me, i shall probably go into other areas of my life...
okay so first things first... my projects that i am working on:
1. Night Lords
2. Blood Pact
These are my main two projects, i'm also gonna be doing orks when i can be arsed and other stuff, i am not 100% GW Loyal so i will sometimes diverge to other model companys
i am also going to be making a Inquistor retinue for Necromunda as a little side project... this is going to be the Retinue of Iquisitor Gideon Ravenor because i am a big big big fan of Dan Abnett... I shall have the whole gang (hopefully) even if some of them are dead when others are around...
i need to buy a decent camera at some point
anyway i have rambled enough
i shall soon post pictures of my first couple of models i have painted up...
i am currently working on both Zeph Mathuin and Angharad
i am going to have the whole lot
Zael, Frauka, Plyton, Ballack, Thonuis, Nayl, Swole, Patience and Ravenor himself
so keep watching
