I really feel that I need a can of Raid! every time I see this guy!

So my wife has a Necron army, and so I bought the new book when it came out. I have decided that even if she doesn't wan't to play her Necrons, I will. With that in mind, I decided I wanted to get my wife (totally not for me) a model that I'd to her for Christmas.

A Tale of Four Dreadnoughts

So here we go again. I'm back to the Space Wolves, and this time I am doing one of my favorite types of minis in the 40k universe. Dreadnoughts!

I know I can't field all of these guys in a list (looks like I need to play some Apocalypse games!), but I love the look of these guys.

Pieces of Eight!

Well here we are. Finally done with my Dwarf Pirates (sort of). I figured when would be a better time to post these guys than the day before Thanksgiving (at least for those of us in the U.S. at least) because I am very thankful that I found these guys in a used mini bin at the FLGS.

Yo Ho Ho!

This was going to be two posts, but I just wasn't sure I could subject you to even more posts of Dwarf Pirates (my wife has informed me that not everyone is as into Dwarf Pirates as I am).

A Bit of a Left Turn

So a while back I bought a box of the Dwarf Berserkers from Avatars of War. Well they have been sitting in the box for a couple of months now and I decided to put them together. 

Here they are. Not bad for $33.

Book Review: Deathwing

I don't remember exactly when I first heard of this anthology, but I did hear about it and I decided I wanted it. I checked all the Half Price Books in the Austin area (there are a bunch), but I did not find the book. I then went to Amazon, and I did find it, used, and for about cover price. I was happy with that and ordered it.

Deathwing is an anthology that is a bit odd as it is sort of a second printing. The first printing had seven stories, but this printing has ten. I'm not sure why they did it, but I knew about this before hand and opted for the one with more stories.

I have got to say that I was a little disappointed because I thought, due to the title, that this would be a book about Dark Angels, but I was wrong. There were only two stories about Dark Angels.

Another Dark Angel Completed.

One of the best things about have a bit of a back log of posts for this blog is that when I say stuff like, "I'm just waiting of some bits to finish this guy off," I can sometimes get the bits in hand, paint them, and have a completed mini before the original post goes up on the blog. This is one of those times.

A-head of the Game

So this guy is done for the moment. I really think he turned out really well.

I did this guy's cloak in the opposite pattern of the last Chapter Master I painted

Dark Angles Thunder Hammer

Well here are some pictures of my next project. I am apparently taking a little break from the Space Wolves. I think it is a good thing. I've been getting a bit tired of all the blue, so something new is different.

Inaugural Three Color Minimum Inter-blog Giveaway

So a while back I won a contest held by a great blog called Gone to Ground.

I decided that I wanted to give back to G2G so I painted up an Ork Warboss with attack squig.

Dave over at G2G decided he wanted to hold a joint give away, and insisted that it be called the "Inaugural Three Color Minimum Inter-blog Giveaway" (such a catchy name). 

So jump over to Gone to Ground to check out the rules, and come back to vote.

Have a good one!

I am head over heels in love with the Dwarf Pirates I picked up. I sat down recently to put some paint on them, and here are some WiP shots.

Teaser of my next project

Unconciously I have moved away from my Space Pups for a bit. I think I need a little bit of a break and it was fun to paint something other than blue/grey. The green and red were a lot of fun to paint. So much so that I am apparently painting some more red.

So last weekend when I went into one of the FLGS to pick up the Necron codex, I had heard that someone had dropped off a lot of WHFB stuff for the owner to sell.

I went poking through the box and found these! 15 Dwarf pirates, yaaar!

A pic of the whole gang!

Necrons: A Fluffy Persepctive

So I purchased the new Necron book on Saturday because my wife has a Necron army gathering dust on one of the shelves of the closet in our office. No, really I bought it for her. Honestly (not really).

I got to sit down Saturday evening and do a good read through of the fluff because I knew it was going to be a departure from the 3rd edition fluff, and here is my summary of it.

60 Million-ish years ago the Necrontyr were on their home planet that had a very messed up star. This caused the life expectency of your average Necrontyr to be very veriable, but usually very short. So they developted this emo-like fetish with death and the afterlife.

As the Necrontyr empire spread out to occupy most of the galaxy they became very factious, and the ruler of the empire, known as the Silent King, decided that they needed a cause that the entire race could rally behind, so he picked a fight with the Old Ones. Bad idea.

Book Review: Iron Hands

So a few weeks back I just happened to be tooling around online and just happened to go to the Black Library site to check out the upcoming releases. Imagine my surprise when I see that Black Library is offering free shipping! This is a big deal to me because there were a number of Print on Demand books that I was looking at, but it just costs so much to have them shipped overseas.

So I snatched up the debt card and ordered me some books. The first one I sat down to read was Iron Hands by Jonathan Green.

In Iron Hands we see the beginning of Abbadon's 13th Black Crusade. The Iron Hands chapter home world of Medusa sits right in the path of the despoilers campaign so the space marines are preparing for war. Iron-Father Gdolkin's plans for glory are derailed when the Mechanicus calls in an old debt with the iron hands and Gdolkin is sent to repay the debt.
