Hobby Update

The last couple of weeks have seen me working on my Emperor’s Children army, getting it 8th Ed compliant.

 I’ve signed up for a local tournament at the end of next month to give me the impetus to get the army finished. The event is now full which shows the demand that the new Warhammer 40k has engendered. This, despite a mission and scoring structure that looks like a demonstration for the dangers of dyslexia. The truism “KISS” is a truism for a reason.

For me this has meant I am trying to build my 2000-2500 point army and then I’ll select 1500 points from it. I’ve finished a unit of Close Combat Noise Marines and I am about halfway through painting my Terminator unit. After reading the Fabius Bile and Lucius books I bought a box of Raptor/Warp talons and have assembled those. They will be my next painting chore.

I also had to rebase all my power armoured infantry to the correct bases. They were on 40mm resins mainly for balance reasons. I’ve had to make some new bases as I couldn’t source suitable resin bases in the right size.

The final things to do will be to finish my Sonic Dreadnaughts and some Daemonettes.

Looking forward to trying it out on the table.
