A Spanner in the Works

Hi all, long time no see...

apologies for not updating since... March? much failure on my part i believe, and apologies again for this post shall not include any pictures, however i am here to discuss with you my plans for the 40,000 Grand Tournament in Nottingham that my friends and i shall hopefully be attending this year.

Now i would love to take a Night Lords Army to the Tournament, but seen as codex creep has made standard CSM armies pretty much uncompetitive, i have had to scrap that idea, i would also love to take a Raptor or Biker full Night Lords army using either the Blood Angel or Space Marine Codex, however i think that the Raptors are an Eye-sore and cant have Night Lord Iconography and the Biker Army will just be too dear in such a short space of time, without further ado, i present to you my 1500 pt Chaos Space Marine Army which i plan to destroy Throne of Skulls with...

Kharn the Betrayer

Khorne Lord with Twin Lightening Claws

Plague Marine Squad (7) with 2 Plasma Guns

3x Khorne Berzerker Squads (8) with Skull Champions with Power Swords and Rhinos

2X Obliterator Squads (2)

a pretty simple list to use i feel, the Plague Marines and Obliterators (who shall be Nurglized) form and fire base and destroy heavy armour and things the Berzerker Horde would struggle to neutralise. The Plague Marines also capture an objective in/close too my deployment zone and then sit there and shrug off anything thrown at them (hopefully) while the Berzerker horde takes the fight to the enemy!

what do you guys reckon? any suggestions? hopefully will be posting in a week/maybe two but i plan to be able to use these units in pure Nurgle and Khorne forces eventually

Full Steam Ahead!

The Assembly Line Continues, a few pictures of the Grotesque on the Loader, not so happy with this one, but hopefully will look ok when done, followed by some more pictures of his squad, showing the Kroot accessories i've used and the stick Grenades

note the home brew autogun, going to have several of these in my army, seen as they plunder their weapons

The Stalk Tank continues to be developed, shot of the back shows the fuel canisters, radio and exhaust pipes, yeah its not done yet, and one of the legs was blown off by a lucky krak round...

have some more ideas for the other stalk-tanks i will be building soon, and i can tell you they include:
1. Barbed Wire
2. Bodies
3. Plasma Cannons
4. other shaped cockpits...

hope you enjoy...

In the Sands.. the Blood Pact are assembling... for war!

ok some work in progress, basically at Ready to Run Models, there is a 1500 pt tournament being run... we're pretty lax and so painting isnt an issue (thank god cause theres so much to do)

but i am finally entering my Blood Pact into a tournament...

contrary to popular belief... Al'Rahem actually looks like this...

pretty simple conversion but hey hopefully he'll look good painted up

Loxatl Conversion... this is a WIP, but you get the general idea, no having them in my army just yet though, cause they are Ogryns, and sooo damn expensive!

Stalk Tank, Again, Still Very WIP needs exhausts and 5 more legs... hopefully will turn out good, this is my third generation stalk tank, gonna vary them up, Different Hulls Shapes, Exhaust styles stuff like that, gonna do some heavy stalk tanks with Plasma Cannons...

they are gonna represent Sentienls as this is the best cross i can come up with...
Lastly a simple Autocannon team... hey he's an Elf!
