Badab War: What to do?!

It seems I may have to put the bulk of the Minotaur army on hold. After a little bit of research, it is almost certain that Forge World will be releasing Mk8 armour packs complete with ankle/glove reinforcements and a new helmet design, further more there are also plans for a Mk 8 assault pack. While in the long term this is great news, as the army was always intended to be fully Mk 8, but in the short term is makes the tactical squad I have not worth finishing! I might just go ahead and finish it, then mix and match the new armour when it finally releases.


With this in mind, I guess this would be an opportune time to work on the non-infantry elements of the army, such as the Contemptor dreadnought and tanks...I also have my HQ choice waiting to be finished, perhaps today should be dedicated to his completion ^^

Badab War: Minotaurs Tactical Squad wip


Long over due post, showing the progress of my first Tactical Squad. As a squad, the colours seem to work and are fairly quick to do (compared to how long I normally take to paint stuff!). The only real issue I am having is weapon colours. The reds I chose for my test figure were a little too rich/bright so I am looking for a more crimson colour similar to Scab Red or a Scab Red/Red Gore mix. I will have to experiment and figure it out this week, as I intend to add 'Red Hand' markings to the my Contemptor Pattern Dreadnought. The intention is finish the Tactical Squad this week and start the lovely Contemptor next, I still have the Achilles waiting, but there are some really cool ideas I have sketched up that need to be translated into models.


So, now that I am happy with the standard and palette of my Space Marines, my thoughts turn towards army lists. I only dabbled in 5th Ed a few times in the last 3 years, but was put off by the overly competitive attitude of the gaming group, in what was meant to be 'friendly games' and preferred to play Warmachine (pay back for the poor 40K experiences :P). But my interest in the Badab War has re-sparked the interest in some friendly/themed games.

Blindwater: Swamp Horror!

Tentacle madness will be joining the Blindwater congregation this autumn in the form of the Swamp Horror Heavy Warbeast. Pictures speak a thousand words and I have to admit, I am feeling more inspired to paint gators over Khador (heresy!). This thing reminds me of a giant mutant Thrullg so I am expecting some form of magic suppression aura and multiple magical attacks from its many tentacles, I can also envision/speculate some form of Fury generation also from kills.


I am looking forward to seeing more of the new Hordes: Domination Heavy beast/machines, but so far (and ok I am biased!) Blindwater looks to be winning the creepy awesome factor! This has given me a real boost in the Privateer Press purchase area. Ever since I started playing Hordes (since last year) I have found myself moving further away from Warmachine; to the extent that I collect Khador for the sake of collecting and do not even game with them anymore. On the plus side, I have a bunch of gators sitting in front of me,; built, primed and ready to have paint applied! Things are stirring in the Bayou...
