Finished Inquisitor

Tank WIPs

I have tried so many times to paint space marine Rhinos and Land Raiders (when I started playing 40k it was called Rouge trader and there was no tanks back then - only instructions on how to build your own baneblade using plasticard :-)). And I have never really enjoyed it. It has been forced and even the original Rhino (tiny) felt like a choir.

But I got three leman russes the other day and I have not been able to stop painting them for my DKOK force - I just put everything else on hold and went at it. I think it might have to do with the LR being more akin to real tanks.. almost a little retro a la WWII... that I enjoy it so much.

Also - I got these of BT (as menitoned before from chadbacca) and they came with the minesweeper bart attached... I broke it off and magnetized the hell out of it. Picking up a model and the part and just hearing the click as the part fits is almost like porn - so darn satisfying :-)

From the painting table

First two DKOK veterans assembled for painting

So when I went to Games Day I got smitten by something I have been looking at for a while - the Death Korps of Krieg... my new goal is to have a full painted (but small) army in time for next years GD to have it compete in Armys on Parade.

The problem with this force is the cost - but some of it can be negated by buying "standard" tanks and try to just use the specialty models.  Still I am hunting everywhere for cast aways and just from the past week I have managed to grab both 3 Leman Russ tanks (thank you very much chadbacca on BT) and a unit of Grenadiers (grahamma on BT and mrgraham on dragonpainting is a real nice guy). I will be looking everywhere to grab more stuff but because my list now includes 6 different armies for 5 different games I won't be able to get it all from FW directly - if you got some stuff: please let me know since I will probably want it :-)
