Alternate Khador Color Scheme.

This is what I'm thinking for my Khador army, with the warjacks being predominantly white to match Sorcha's armor. Is it too busy? Comments / Criticism's are welcome. The tiny female face was challenging. I need more practice.

Next up: Juggernaut, just as soon as I finish it.

I have a new Army!

I played my first game of Warmachine today. It was incredibly fun. And to my joy I "acquired" a nice sized Khador army. Will the fun ever stop? I have a lot to learn and a bunch to paint.

Dwarfs - Test Mini

Here's a preview of my first unit.
Light green on the sleeve will be army wide. The dark green denotes, unit type. After this one was complete, I decided on a slightly different dark green. More of that later...

Strike Force: Fire Fox!

I've always thought the idea of Deep striking terminators with relentless heavy weapons is a great idea, but space wolves can't teleport! They can however take a drop pod! I haven't had any drop pod models though, so the thought had just been sitting at the back of my mind until I read this. I have no desire to copy this army list, but I love the idea of Logan, Arjac & the long fangs in a drop pod. It makes me think of an elite strike force / black ops unit. so I came up with this:

When Logan Grimnar goes to war, he arrives at the tip of a drop pod assault spearhead deployed with an elite long fang unit known as the Fire Fox. The Fire Fox is always a full unit of long fangs armed to the teeth with Multi-Meltas, and led by none other then the wolf guard battle leader and Logans' greatest champion, Arjac Rockfist.
Fire Fox will Land ahead of the rest of the army taking out important targets before they know what hits them, with multimeltas blazing, and Arjac Laying down serious pain with his Foehammer.

If any enemy is foolish enough to assault the Fire Fox they will then feel the wrath of the Great King himself, Logan Grimar! They will not live to tell the tale of their mistake.

Next up: Customized Drop pod for the High King!

So much to do, so little time

I need to win the lottery so I can have more time to finish the things on my plate. Here is what's in the current rotation:

Space Wolves - Need to complete a unit of long fangs w/ multi meltas, a couple more Thunder wolf cavalry and some Fenrisian wolves to round out my 2000 pt force for the next Contest of Champions.

Chaos Dwarfs - 15 Warriors, 10 blunderbuss, 1 sorcerer conversion, and a hobgoblin bolt thrower. This is going to be a quick 500 pt force to play/test/learn the new 8th Fantasy rules.

Tyranids - I've been wanting to get started on these guys for a while, but the Space Wolves have been taking most of my time. I think once the COC force above is complete, I may start painting a small force of nids to play/test/learn this codex. I have pretty much everything assembled, just need to lay down paint. I also want to put them on these wonderful bases (I'll need to remove them from their current ones).

Dwarfs!!!!! - They have been patiently waiting in the box unassembled for years!!! I have a ton of them, and nothing is assembled. Lots of work here, but once 8th comes out, I'm going to have to dive in!

So that is what's currently on the table. I would also love to make a Blood angels army, but I think that is more of a dream at this point  (unless that lottery win happens). And depending on  what comes in the Fantasy starter set.... (did I hear skaven?). I've always wanted to do a skaven army. I have a Skaven Blood bowl team, but that isn't even on the list of things to do at this point.

Paint on!!!
