For may I’m gonna paint these three Alps. Just in case my newly painted Copellius would happen to stumble upon some eyes…
Just finished my Copellius model. It was hard to get this model to look the way I want to, and I’m still not entirely sure I’m satisfied.
As the Lelu model isnt really good i decided to do some modifications. Cred to the Malifools podcast for the idea to give him wings (as he does fly). Other than the wings i have posed him more forward and reposed the head so he looks forward and not upward.
Fanatic XXIII game one. Major loss against Ravenwing. With lots of plasmatalons, multi-melta attack bikes and Standard of Devastation boosted twin-linked boltguns this bike horde quickly killed my army.
As a side note. I like how having the Standard of Devastation on a ravenwing command squad allows it to move in the shooting phase and boost more units.
I’m going to participate in a 1995 pts 40k tournament this weekend. How to do a good Dark Angel list is a tricky one, especially since I didn’t want to paint a whole lot of new stuff. This is what I came up with. Hopefully It will work.
My Warlord will be Belial, so I can get a few extra troop units and perhaps a precise deep strike. He will probably be accompanied by a unit of Deathwing knights most of the time.
Belial unlocks a Deathwin command squad, allowing me to take the Standard of Devastation. This unit will ride in a Land Raider crusader to boost its fire-power until the time is ready to unleash their Thunder hammers and storm shields on the enemy. This unit will probably never get near Belial in a game.
My second HQ is a Librarian. He carries a power field generator and will probably spend most of the games running after the Land raider. He wears terminator armour for some additional protection and will probably have prescience to boost Thunder hammer and storshield Deathwing or Deathwing knights in close combat. He wont himself get into assaults though if I can help it.
My only elite unit is a unit of Deathwing knights. They will act as a sledgehammer unit and companions for Belial.
As troop choices I start with two units of Deathwing terminators (thanks to Belial). Both units have a cyclone missile launcher to give the army a little more anti tank options and one of the units have a chainfist (as I had five points to spare). I’m really troubled that the new Dark Angels faq prevents Deathwing sergeants from changing their weapons into something more useful than their standard power sword.
Finishing off the troops are two small squads of tactical space marines. Both with a missile launcher equipped with flakk missiles for some additional anti flyer possibilities. I don’t count on these guys to kill flyers though as the odds of their single strength 7 shot shall do lasting damage is slim. But hopefully they will be able to duck behind cover long enough to get to an objective in the end.
As a fast attack I have a Nephilim Jetfighter. As It can use its Lascannon on flyers it is the best anti flyer in my list and it can also shoot at land targets. Primary though its in the list as it looks nice and its fun to move around flyers. I have low expectations for it to achieve something.
Lastly is the real workhorse in the list. I have spent lots of points on this thing as I’m planing to boost it with both the power field generator and Standard of Devastation, hopefully with devastating effect. I haven’t play tested this though so it might be a disappointment…
I could have included two Land raider crusaders to double this effect, but as my second one isn’t looking as nice I have decided to take the Nephilim instead. If I will regret this choice of not will become clear after a game or two.
Wish me luck!
Tomorrow is the last day of the Mutant Chronicles Warzone Resurrection kickstarter. I still havnt decided what faction im going to play. I’m leaning towards Bauhaus, as they are coolest but I’m not sure I want to do another white army (my Resurrection of Scyrah being enough…). I’m definitely going to build some kind of force though. If for no other reason than that 1st ed was a blast. :)
I’m going through a bit of painting depression at the moment. Have done next to nothing the last week and that not good. I’m going to try pulling myself together and do some work today.
I finished the base for my second Stitched last night. Now I just have to complete Copellius and the whole Bad dreams box set is done.
My pledge for april will be atleast the devastators and aegis defence line and hopefully also the librarian and a techmarine.
A really good design for Dark Eldar (and perhaps Eldar?) buildings.
