Overloaded with projects.

I've been really busy for the past few weeks! I've got commission work to do, luckily one of my clients dropped a full army project or I don't think I will have time to even blog.


These are the Daemonettes for his Chaos Daemons army. I'm making it a dual 40k and Fantasy army. Obviously they are not done yet.


I'm also working on my Chaos Renegade Militia. Finally got some tanks up.




I've also started work on some of my Dark Elf characters. Really love these Avatars of War miniatures.



This is the sorceress from Avatars of War.



This is also another commission work from another client, luckily I don't have to paint his entire Dark Elf army, or I will have 2 Dark Elf armies to paint. I'm almost done with this Supreme Sorceress.



Don't forget, I also have to paint the terrain for the shop. I'm really churning out a lot of time to make sure the terrain for the shop is looking good. Especially when I have to make sure I have enough terrain for more than 4 tables, because players want to switch out terrain every once in a while.



Hope I can rush these things up as fast as possible!

Possessed Warhammer 40,000

Guys, it must be possessed by you before you can use this book.



Just spent a lot of time working on many different projects, taking a break while looking through the Imperial Guard Codex. I'll be updating soon on my progress of the Chaos Renegade Militia and the tank that I'm working on...

Chaos Renegade Militia - The army list.


I've spent lots of time tinkering with this list over and over and over again. I suppose it's now time to ask the readers (you guys) what do you think of this 2,000 point list. I've got some friends who are well into Imperial Guard Tactics to teach me

I've got no interest to spam 100+ men especially when I'm dealing with Forge World upgrades. So I'm keeping it to a really powerful mech list.



HQ
Company Command Squad (1+4) with Astropath and Officer of the Fleet. All with camo cloaks. 2 Veterans with sniper rifles. Vox Caster. Regimental Standard.
160


Elites
Storm Trooper Squad (1+4) with 2 Meltas
105 points



Troops
Veteran Squad (1+9) with 3 meltaguns and Vox Caster. [In the Vendetta]
105 points

Veteran Squad (1+9) with 3 plasma guns and Vox Caster. Grenadiers. [In the Vendetta]
150 points

Veteran Squad (1+9) with 3 Sniper Rifles and Lascannon team with Vox Caster.
110


Fast Attack
Scout Sentinel Squadron (3)
105 points

Vandetta Gunship Squadron (2)
260 points

Bane Wolf (2) with heavy flamer and multimelta (both)
290 points

170 points

Leman Russ Executioner with plasma cannon sponsons and heavy flamer
230 points


Leman Russ Demolisher with heavy flamer
Leman Russ Battle Tank with heavy flamer
315

Total: 2000 points


Can somebody enlighten me on why I should actually take the Bane Wolf or a Hell Hound? If you do have any suggestions, I'm open to listening, but I would also want to test play this army some time soon before I commit to buying everything.

Chaos Renegade Militia - Chaos Sentinel

I spend a few hours doing converting this sentinel. I wasn't happy with the driver, so I sawed the body off and replaced with the militia part from Forge World. I haven't glued most of the parts yet for painting purposes.

I'm really happy with the model, especially the base.





Won't be painting this any time soon as I'm awaiting for my paints to arrive...

The Secret Army I'm building - The Dark Elves...

I've always been wanting to start a Fantasy army since 2008. After knowing that there aren't many Fantasy players, I've put the idea on hold. Last year, I started to hype up some of my friends to start some Fantasy armies. It worked. So I chose the Dark Elves.

I've painted 20 Warriors, 19 Corsairs (pictures later) and Lokhir Fellheart in like 20 days. That's quite some speed. But looking at the fact that I'm quite busy with the shop, I'm slowing down a little. Gotta do my commission painting and paint off the terrain for the shop.

This is my first regiment of Dark Elf Spearmen.


The freehand was really easy to achieve.






I've glued 5 of them in a row just to give them a cinematic feel when you see them from the back, as if they're really standing on snowy ground compared to bases.


I painted Lokhir Fellheart in like 5 hours including the basing. Real easy model, but fun nevertheless.



I hope I have more time this week to paint up my Druuchi as I'm so involved in the Fantasy campaign organised by Joe. So much fun! :D
