Random Thought: Why Don't Space Marines Know How to Infiltrate Anymore

Have a random thought bouncing around my head.  It revolves around how Scouts, being initiates into the chapter and not quite yet a battle brother, run around all sneaky, infiltrating and scouting all over the place, then upon elevating to battle brother status forgets all that crap.  There can be reasons for this, but really it seems even in the fluff that battle brothers have almost forgotten how to do all that infiltrating.

Harlies and Hobby

Well the harlequins are all but confirmed now, and I am surprisingly excited about it.  I love the fluff that they have, and are probably one of the few "factions" I'll get jut for the models.  As long as the models are great, but hey GW is pretty solid there so not a stretch of the imagination.

Hobby Progress: Painted Krom Dragongaze

Alright so finally got another post.  I have been working on Krom Dragongaze, the space wolf special character from the sanctus reach campaign.  I love the model which is why I got it, plus he makes a great wolf lord/battle leader.  Kept with my armies theme and did a bit more final work, which I think shows in the face and in other areas.  There is def some more work to do but I really like his look so far.

Hobby post: Complete Space Wolf Rhino

Another project completed, the rhino is done and ready for battle.  I did not glue the ramp nor the top hatches so I could paint the inside, the inside could use some touchups but it won't be seen often enough to be on my priority list.  Only have a few space wolf units left to complete, just krom dragonaze and some scouts, will get to those soon.

Hobby Progress: Custom Wolf Priest WIP

Was able to get to work on my custom wolf priest, as I really don't like the existing models that much.  I used space wolf body parts and got the special edition dark angel chaplain so that I would have plastic crozius, and I ended up using the helmet as I couldn't get a custom wolf helmet that looked good (attempts to make one failed).  He looks wolfy enough to work, I may end up buying a finecast ulrik the slayer in the end though.

Battle Fleet Gothic Game: OOOHHHH!!

I got this from my brother, and not sure how much news this is but a battle fleet gothic strategy game is in the works.  I so want this, and hope this turns out to be a good game.  The setting of the game is to be the Gothic war against Abbaddon, which is no surprise.  No word on when it is to be released.

Bullgryn WIP part 3: Done

So now I have the bullgryns done.  At least table ready done, there is plenty more that could be done, but for me they are now acceptable for games.  Here's hoping that they do well this weekend and are happy with their paint job.

Bullgryn WIP part 2

So part two of my continuing progress on the Bullgryns.  Quick post tonight as I got home late and want to spend time painting more tonight rather than blogging.  I painted last night while watching my ole colleges championship foot ball game (american) who continued with their usual choking in the champ game, so I may have drunk a little bit.  A little bit of touch up to do, but not finished anyways so no biggie, I usually make messes as I paint and clean it as it gets finished.  But not bad for some wine infused painting.

New Hobby Progress: Painted Space Wolves and Bullgryns

So I finally got motivated and got some hobby time this weekend.  I have a playdate next sunday, so have a new list to try and as such I have new and old models to paint.  Basically I am taking a force of Space Wolves and AM together.  I have six bullgryns who will have a wolf priest running with them for FnP (6+) and preferred enemy and fearless, and two demo squads in drop pods just for fun and to try it out.  Rest of the army is grey hunter squad, blood claws, rune priest, two infantry squads with ACs, a PCS with melta in a taurox, tank commander in exterminator, vendetta, wyvern.  Should be about it and covers most bases.

Skitarii Posibilities

The new rumors going the rounds is Admech, with skitarii being the main event in the rumors.  I really don't know, I want to believe it, but its hardly the first Admech rumor to come about.  For me the hard part is that there are no pics, of anything, and the rumor mill has been on lock down for quite a while.  Being that unless pics are leaked, most rumors have not panned out.  But who knows, maybe a pic will be leaked soon or this could be one of the few cases where the rumor slipped the cracks.

New Year, New Projects

Ah a new year.  Now I am not one for resolutions, think they are silly, but I do have plans for the upcoming year.  My professional life is in flux so may determine how much of this happens, especially if I have to move to an area with less gaming, but we will see.
