The usual comment about now is - good golly man who are you?
Well yes. It has been a very long time but truth be told over Christmas my Wargaming Mojo upped and left and stayed away for months. Odd indeed.
So what brings me back? 40K. Always does in the end and just recently the arrival of the new Daemons Codex which has brought me full circle to the army I first started this blog with for our GoG Tale. More on the Daemons in a minute.
Firstly let's discuss 40K Events. I have always enjoyed going along to events, meeting old acquaintances, new opponents and fancy looking armies. These days I very much sit in mid-table to bottom table excitement but as long as we're all having fun then that's what matters.
So why do I mention Events? Because they are what motivates me generally to finish a project. Case in point was the recent X-Legion event to which I decided to take my World Eaters. I wanted to take some new units which meant my Berzerker Icons, Chaos Space Marines and the Maulerfiend.
But those are finished - I hear you cry - there were posts and everything. Well yes and no. The models were painted but they've been languishing in the space between painting table and army box for months as the bases were not flocked or completed. I know. How rubbish right?
Remember this picture:
Now here he is finally completed...
How'd the event go? Well we finished 2-0-4 and somewhere in the bottom half. Kharn took his Betrayer tally to 37 and managed to turn himself in to a spawn(!). Also managed to walk away with the Most Sporting Trophy which is ace!
The Daemons have been completely revamped in the new Codex and I'm loving it. Not going to go in to details here but would instead like to introduce my new Screamers unit that is needed for Vanquish this coming weekend.
Used all new paints on these and there are 4 layers of blue in there somewhere.
Here's a close up:
Only complaint I have is the ball topped flying base. They don't sit on the base and therefore have to be glued in place (yes, I'm sure magnets could be made to work but I had a deadline!). We'll see how they survive the travel next weekend.
So lots of reading to do before Vanquish and next weekend the Tau land as well. I was wondering what allies to add to my World Eaters...
Next up: Chaos Cultists as they've been sat on the painting table for months.
