T-Minus 21 Days and Counting

For today I am showing a quick tutorial on how I magnetized my Cyclone Missile Launcher on my Wolf Guard that will be attached to one of my Long Fang units.

Here is the model I will be using. I painted this buy up a few years ago for the original BoLScon, and he will be getting a new coat of paint for War Games Con this year.

Rebooting, and War Games Con

So as I mentioned on Monday, I took the last 6 weeks off from blogging (and hobbying to be honest) to get over some illnesses (it really sucked that that is plural) and to finish up school. Yesterday was my last day of work, and now it is time to get it back in gear.

War Games Con is right around the corner, and I plan on playing in the narrative campaign. For that I have to have a 3000 point army ready to go. I've almost got that squared away except for a few pieces. So as you can see from the newly installed countdownr, I'm got about three weeks to get everything done. I'm thinking it will be fine.

So first up, I am going to list my army:

Rune Priest: Runic Armor, Chooser, Jaws and Lightning
Rune Priest: Runic Armor, Chooser, Lightning and Hurricane
Wolf Priest: Runic Armor, Jump Pack,

Venerable Dreadnought: Assault Cannon, DCCW
Venerable Dreadnought: Plasma Cannon, DCCW
Wolf Scouts x5: Meltagun, Wulfen
Wolf Guard x5: Power Fist x4, Combi-Melta x4, TDA and CML
Wolf Guard x8: ArjacStorm Bolter, Combi-Plasma x3, Chain Fist, Double Wolf Claw, Power Fist, Power Weapon, Thunder Hammer x2, Frost Weapon, Storm Shield x2

Grey Hunters x8: Standard, Meltagun, Wulfen, Rhino
Grey Hunters x8: Standard, Meltagun, Wulfen, Rhino
Grey Hunters x5: Plasma gun, Razaorback with Las/Plas

Sky Claws x10: Meltagun

Long Fangs x6: Missile Launcher x5
Long Fangs x6: Lascannons x5
Landraider Crusader: Extra Armor, Meltagun

2999 points.

Everything in white I have painted and ready to go. Everything in yellow is in the process of being painted. I don't think that is too much to do in 3 weeks.

We'll see!

Memorial Day 2012

In Flanders Fields, by John McCray, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scare Heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with use who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

To those I served with,
to those I've lost,
to those I'll never get a chance to meet,
happy Memorial Day.

I've taking some time off due to illness and the end of the school year, but I am hoping to have regular blog posts starting again on Wednesday.
