Dark Vengeance.

Oh September...
Such a busy month with this whole silly starter set thing. Needless to say I got one. GW is like a black whole for people's wallets. Also almost finished painting a land raider for my Imperial Fist I managed to get off Ebay for 30 bucks. Also need to finish putting magnets into the sponson and doors. Would hate to have to buy 2 of these things just to use each configuration.

Now onto the Dark Vengeance models... I traded all the chaos ones I got to a friend for his DA stuff except for one of the lords. I think the amount of detail they have in these snap together models makes fine cast almost pointless. Really need to get around to finishing the painting on this batch before I start the other set of theses guys. All together though should have about 1500 points of DA now for about 80 bucks after.

 The lone chaos lord, painted for the black legion as I felt those colors fit these models best. (Though the Hellbrute screams Nurgle if you ask me.) Also decided to add a little something special to his base. Ultra smurfs really aren't my thing.

Sons of Dorn

\Recently started playing Warhammer 40,000 as a way of taking a break from video games. I think I picked a good time to start having purchased my Black Reach starter set right before the 6th edition launched and adding some more stuff in the mean time. The army I started is pretty standard Space Marine army painted and constructed to fit the fluff and look of the Imperial Fist chapter. Apart from the color scheme having a nice appeal, I liked the fluff. The Imperial Fist are masters of defense, and very stubborn. (Even by space marine standards)

As you can probably tell the vast majority of my army is from started sets with a few devastator squads thrown in and a chaplain I found at a flea market for 2 dollars (got a bunch of metal mini's from there.)

My next goal is to add in some more armor (at least 1 or 2 tanks) and a Thunderfire cannon or two.
