And What Else Burns?? MORE WYCHES!!

 Well, one at least.

I used a new method on the flesh tones.  It appears a bit washed out in the photo, but I'm a lot happier with how it came out.  I used a basecoat of Dheneb Stone, washed with Leviathan Purple, and then layered with Dheneb Stone and highlighted with 50/50 Dheneb Stone and Skull White.  As shown in the group shot further down, I think it makes the skin tones "pop" a lot more than the other ones.  Enjoy!

Battle Report vs. IG #2

So I played another 1850 battle vs. IG this week, different player with similar chimera-spam list.  Nate's lists have been becoming more and more evil as time goes by, culminating in this one.  We rolled the Adepticon 2010 mission with 3 objectives, one of them being the Alpha objective.

 My first Hekatrix while I should've been studying.  Oh well.  I'm pretty happy with him, but the skin tone isn't perfect yet and I'm not thrilled with the Agonizer.  Thoughts?

Trueborn Test Model

 Just finished him up.  The base is still a WIP, white glue is currently drying, but here he is in all his badassness.  Custom-pattern blaster is just the DL with the tip cut off if you couldn't already tell.  Enjoy!!

Reaver Test Model

Just polished this bad boy off.  At least I think.  Any suggestions for basing additions?? Grass??

BatRep vs. IG

So I played another 1850 battle vs. a local IG player, Matt.  Again using the Adepticon 2010 missions, we rolled for the Annihilation mission:  Pitched battle deployment, Primary Kill Points, Secondary eliminate all enemy troops, Tertiary Victory Points (by 250 points).  Let me preface this game by saying that it was one of the most hard-fought, bloody, and enjoyable games I've ever played.  It isn't a battle I'll soon forget.  I apologize in advance for it's length, but the battle was very intense and went a full 7 turns.

1850 BatRep vs. Tyranids

As promised, an 1850 Battle Report against the Tyranids of Dr. John Hemlock.  We played the Adepticon 2010 mission where the primary objective is to control terrain pieces.  We used a full 25% terrain pieces, including plenty that blocks LOS for raiders and such.  Not that it mattered much to the Hive Guard.  So without further ado:
