Snow Day!

I hope everyone is staying warm today! I managed to get out of work today, so I decided to put some long needed love and work onto my Hammerhead! I'm quickly finding out that orange over a large area is a pain in the butt to paint! You can see how I'm watering down the paint to help smooth the process but still, I'm glad my whole army is not primarily orange!

The Ever Growing Attention to Detail

With all of these new models for the Harlequins coming out it makes me happy as a hobbyist to see new amazing models from GW coming out. While I haven't spent a penny on models for personal financial and modeling goal reasons, I still love seeing the quality of work that is coming with some of these new models! I can't wait to see more of the armies that I enjoy working on showing up with new goodies to throw my money at, although at a detriment to my wallet!

I am excited to see what new technology and more expertise brings us hobbyists in the coming months.

I hope I can get something up here in the next few days post wise. On the other hand, you might start to notice some changes in graphics here in the coming weeks as I am currently installing software on my new computer to start working on things for the blog and my own art endeavors!

Updates here! (Sorry)

Wow, so.... Hello again, no I'm not dead, yes I've been extremely busy this year. I honestly have not done many things towards my hobby, I've put some paint on some of my guys, and my tau are looking better and better each time I look at them! As an example, here's two of my stealth suits side by side, one before, the other pretty much finished.

Here's two more angles of the finished one!

 Other than that I haven't done much, but look forward to us putting some more stuff up on here sooner than later this time!

Another reason that I haven't done much recently is due to this event, See if you can't see what happened from these series of pictures!

If you guessed I went out, bought a long-board, and then immediately fractured my collarbone 45 minutes into riding it the first time, you would be right!

The hammer

Mission 4: The Hammer

Space marines (Blood angels, space wolfs, etc):  2000 points*
Tyranids: 2000 points*

Deployment: Standard board size, no terrain.
Standard deployment, both sides rolling off to see who deploys and then goes first. Initiative may be stolen on a 6.

Objectives and game length:
Game lasts 5-7 turns, using random game length
At the end of the game, calculate the points values of all units that were completely destroyed for each side, adding an additional 100 for the warlord and any unique characters. (If the warlord is a unique character, only add the 100 once). Which ever side has the least points wins. **

Special rules:
If Space Marines won mission 3, they gain one Artillery Blast per Mission 3 objective that survived. Artillery Blast uses the following profile: Str 7, Ap 1, Large Blast
If Tyranids won mission 3, then they may select one tyranid unit per Mission 3 objective that was killed, except for the warlord.. When that unit is destroyed, it may instead be placed into reserves to return next game turn. (Space Marines will still get the points for it's destruction, and if it is destroyed again it will count twice.)
In the event of a tie, both sides gain victory benefits.


The battle for the planet draws to a close before long. With all the civilians either dead or evacuated, the Space Marines draw back to an area with less cover, forcing the tyranid swarms to march across a barren land of weapons fire. Depending on how the battle has been going so far, the space marines may find support in artillery barrages from afar, or they may feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of tyranids, seeming as if each brood slain simply came back to life! Regardless, both side will not give up easily- this is the final battle to determine whether the Imperium will be able to hold the planet, or if it will fall to the Great Devourer.

*Alternatively, seeing as this is the end of the campaign (designed so that it could be wrapped up in a long weekend at most), it's quiet reasonable to up the points value up to apocalyptic proportions. If you and your opponent agree, it would be a great way to end the battle.

** Also alternatively, if you and your opponent are the types who think the last battle should be to the last man, then forget game length and points value- play until every model is removed from the board! Either one of these will likely increase the length of the game, but if it's fun, then that's good, right?

Victory benefits:
If Space Marines win, they may walk away knowing that a faithful sector of the Imperium has been saved this day, and a lethal branch of Xenos scum have been wiped from the galaxy.
If Tyranids win, they may laugh maniacally as yet another world falls to the Great Devourer, as countless have before and countless will still in the future. With that planet's defenses gone, they will push on into the rest of the sector, wiping the planets clean of all biomass.
