Deathwing Chaplain and battle report

First thing on the menu is this Chaplain that I updated to be included in my new Deathwing. He used to belong to the Imperial Fists but became a free agent and was snatched up last minute. He used to specialize in a pair of Lightning claws but has since traded in for a combi-melta and his crozius.

The next thing is that I would like your guys opinion on color choices for the storm shields in the army. The two below are part of Belial's chosen command squad, the troop squad he always accompanies. The guy on the left is the original choice and the fella on the right is the proposed change. With the black shield, I thought that it just faded into the model to much. I just realized the guy on the right isnt finished as I meant to paint the inner ring black. Basically a switch-a-roo. Well anyway, which do you prefer?

And for desert, the battle report I promised the other day.

I need to say something because I havent published a couple of the last battle reports where I was beaten. The battle reports are kind of filler material for me and the take the most effort to put together so sometimes I dont get around to it and they fade into the background as time moves on. One in particular is against my arch-enemy, Ryan SInnot. This "ray of sunshine," has knocked me out of about three tournaments. I will have my revenge!

First off, I like the second shield. Especially if you put an inner black ring on it.

Secondly, I can not believe that your cyclone missile launchers didn't do more damage to your opponent.

Third - were your dice really cold?

I agree with Magilla that you should go with the second storm shield.

Also great bat rep!

It seems everything everyone is into the second shield. Thats good cause thats what I was feeling. Ill post a pic witht the black band included.
@ mags
I think they didnt do more because of the fact that I ran the front three units in the early part of the game and was then counter assaulted quite effectively. The missles did there fair share of saving the game in the end though

I guess my dice werent treating me the best on the vehicle damage chart of all places.

The vehicle damage chart has been the bane of many games.

I agree about the second sheild looking better. I use adeptus battlegrey on my termie sheilds for a similar effect (i must finish those and get pics up :P).

Wicked chaplain.

Nice battle report, bitching chaplain too.

I think the second shield looks better, but I would honestly keep it with the inner ring in bone.
