Hey Fellas! I hope everything is well for everyone out there. This feels so strange since I havent done it in such a long time. I have gotten to play about 4 games of the new edition, 3 of those being in a tournament that I finished dead last in! I had fun throughout the day as a whole but it pretty much sucked sitting there while the guys were picking my bones clean for tournament points at the tail end of a few of the ggames. I havent been back to play since. Maybe that will change since I have decided to take the next three months off of work. I just had a number two and I dont think I have ever seen one quite so beautiful.
I mean that I just had my second son! :D Im obviously thrilled and I am going to take the next three months off from work to get to know the little guy.....and maybe do some painting. That might mean more blogging so hold your breath!
This fella here is my "counts as," Kharn. The base model is of course, the Lord from the Dark Vengence Box. A few details that might be overlooked are the lack of the STUPID random teeth that show up throughout the fig. I couldnt get rid of them all, but I did cut off and resculpted as many as possible. Another change that I made was that I shaved or cut the bone ridges off his antlers. This allowed me to do a color fade that I thought looks much better. Lastly, I gave him a manly pistol. An artifact that once belonged to an ancient Terran called DIRTY Harry. I have written my own rules for the weapon: str 10, ap 1, unlimited range, assault 6
All for a 5 pt upgrade. i cant wait to bring him out in a tournament! MUHAHahaHa The axe is made from parts from a blood angels axe, two chain axes, two chaos stars, and two skulls.
There is still some minor detail work in order for him to be considered finished!
I cant express how dissappointed in the chaos release I really am. I dont really give a care about the codex as its just rules that I deal with when playing the game. Hell, I liked the last codex, but am always happy for fresh stuff! Anyway, the model release seems so crappy. I am not talking about the new models and whether I like them or not. I am refering to the lack of new kits. Those damn beserker models are really showing there age. The plague marines suck nuts, and those stupid obliterators. regardless of the mini rant here, I am seriously disappointed in the lack of improvement to the csm model range!
