A very rough test genestealer and a moment of glory for chaos

So i've always had this problem when I looked at genetealers. They aren't the most detailed of models yet they looks so complicated to me. I just can't decide what should be flesh/chitin and looking at images on google didn't really help. I painted this test gs to try and just make a decision, and I can't say i'm too dissapointed.

Disclaimer: yes it is currently a very bad paint job lol


As mentioned in the title, the picture below represents my moment of glory in a game that ended up a draw. It was played on a round table....yes a round table. It was a long and hard fought out game of 6 turns of back and forth inbetween S and myself,

The 8 raptors who were earlier deepstrilked in losing their champion and one other guy to dangerous terrain, were then messed up thoroughly by the genestealer unit with broodlord and left with one sole surviver: a bolt pistol raptor. He then managed to not only cut down the broodlord but then went after the remaining warrior (prime) which was on its way to bring some trouble to my base and let off a singe bolt pistol round which got in under the hard carapace finding the soft goey stuff inside his brain and exploding it into chunks of xenos.

Completed Deathleaper

Finished the Deathleaper. Winter light sucks so sorry for the bad lighting.

Next on my agenda is my genestealers and broodlord. I'm not sure if it's worth paining the genestealers because I want to buy a new box so I can include scything talons, The ones I have currently I bought from Ebay (Is there something I'm missing, why on earth would you not configure them that way?) but I guess I could do with the painting practice. Oh also my second unit of genestealers I want to be Ymgarl so thats another box. sigh sometimes I wonder why I bother with Ebay

Emperors children Raptors and Battle report

 Hi there, allan here and I've finnished a few raptors in the following paint scheme...

I already described how i changed it first on space marine the ps3 game so I thought I'd show my raptor skin for the game first.
Here are the minatures ..
Today i played against George a 855 point each side capture and control table quaters game of 40k my chaos marines against his eldar.
I had daemon prince with mark of slaan and doombolt, two 5 man squads of chaos marines one with power weapon and a 7 man squad of raptors with two melta guns and a champion with paired lightning claws.Finally i packed in my havocs with  the big guns we all love to shoot at things.

George had a jetbike seer council with all the lovely cheesey stuff i can never remember, a load of guardian jetbikes, 5 dire avengers and 5 banshees.

I went first moving toward georges base keeping the havocs in my own with their long range goodness and my daemon prince in reserve. I shot some dire avengers and made a load of saves from the guardian fire.

George shot loads of flamers at my raptors with the warlocks in the seer council he killed all but one then assualted and killed that one :(

I Brought the daemon prince in from reserve, finished off the dire avengers and lost some more guys to shruiken fire.
Plasma gun chaos marine killed a banshee and then got assualted by them and the seer council. I was thoroughly wiped out.
Right about turn 4 i finally got the daemon prince into assualt range and got some revenge on the seer council.
The Daemon Prince did not do well against them in the first round of close combat as he hit out against everyone except the farseer this was stupid of me because he was giving them fortune and guide and all that nasty eldar trickery! DP lost combat but made the fearless armour save. This left the prince with one wound left however but then next turn turn 5 assualt phase the daemon prince struck down the farseer rippin him and his bike in half mwuahah then turn six came after we rolled to continue.

The guardian bikes and banshees assualted the remaining five man marine squad with power weapon and flamer the chaos marines were cut down before they could respond. The bikes then consolidated back into the eldar base securing their victory as all the chaos troop choices were dead and the game ended.

Hello, quick mini segment from S,

I've really not been abled to dedicate as much time as I would have liked to painting (or playing) because of...well life....well I say F*** you life! lol here is a preview of my Death leaper. I finally decided on a chitin colour scheme and look forward to painting the rest of my aweeesommme nids arrrmy.

emperors children pink and black test marine

I've decided to re paint my chaos army pink and black. After making a huge fuss about having them purple and gold a la pre heresy emperors children colours i decided the post heresy paint scheme looked cooler. Yes you guessed correctly i was playing space marine on my playstation and impusively as always decided they all had to be repainted all 1500 points worth.

Any suggestions would be welcome as I wasn't sure if i should paint the whole head pink leaving the vent black or leave it like this as i like the sort of two tone type of paint jobs. Not bothered about changing it as its only a test marine. Happy hobbying ..peace

Nids and Chaos versus Vanilla marines

S and myself had a small game against George's new Space Marine army; 2047 points each side. The mission capture and control. We didn't do a video battle report but chose to take a few pics.

Chaos consisted of: Daemon prince with wings, mark of slaan and doombolt, terminator lord with mark of slaan twin linked bolter and power sword. ten man squad with champwith power weapon flamer plasma and bolters. 8 man raptor squad with powerfist melta and plasma. 5 man raptor squad with paired lightning claws melta and plasma. and finally havocs with power weapon champ, heavy bolter two missle launchers and lascannon.

Tyranids consisted of: Death leaper, 3 man warrior squad with prime death spitter and venom cannon, Brood lord with genestearlers with rending claws and toxin sacs (9 including bl) 8 ymgarl generstealers (which were regular genestealers as a proxy and 1 lictor too) and also a Zoanthrope.

Georges space marines I remember as such: One venerable dreadnought with missile launcher and assualt cannon, sternguard, razor back, razor back with lascannons, one chaplain with power fist one captain with thunderhammer and plama pistol attack bike squad with flamers and heavy bolter. scouts with heavy bolter and bolt guns. devestators with missile launchers. 5 man squad with bolters 5 man squad with bolters and heavy bolter.Terminators with power fists and stormbolters (5)

I might have forgotten some of georges stuff he can comment and correct if he likes lol S and myself won the roll off and chose to deploy second and go second aiming to steal the iniative (we were feelin lucky lol) we failed to steal the iniative  :(

I deployed my daemon prince behind the eight man raptor squad to give him a cover save put my 5 man raptor squad to their left, the havocs went in the ruins and the chaos marines and terminator lord deployed behind S's warriors. Her Zoan thrope deployed to the right of my termi hq squad and the genestealers with broodlord wend in our base.

The picture here shows the ymgarl gstealers in the base too but S had written on a piece of paper that they would hide in George's base on the other end of the board(sshhhh dont tell george) she jus forgot to take them off the actual board lol

George defended his base with devestators and a 5 man bolter squad and proceeded to advance his dreadnought and bikes down the right flank whislt the rest of his army moved down the left in razor backs.
He shot his razor back with lascannons at the daemon prince who failed his 4 plus cover and took one wound. The infiltrating scouts shot at the tyranid warriors and knocked off a couple wounds. Other than that the space marines advanced their vanillas asses toward the towering evil might of our hideous hord. The marines took out some of my advancing 5 man raptor squad.

The 8 man power fist raptor squad shot the melta and wrecked the razor back without lascannons the occupants disembarked and killed the 8 man squad who blew up their transport. The other razor back was shook by the havocs lascannon but disembarked the hq squad of thunder hammer captain and dudes who took one more wound off the daemon prince.


The attack bikes shot at the Chaos termi Hq squad with flamers and bolter fire hittin the tyranids infront of them with some flamer fire but did very little damage.

The Daemon prince charged the thunder hammer weilding space marine captain killing him outright. The remaining raptors (lightning claws guy and melta guy) shot at the scouts in the crater and killed one.
The scouts fired back killing the melta gun raptor.  The chaos hq squad rapid fired everything at the attack bikes killing a few then the deathleaper assualted them and finished them off. The one remaining raptor in the evil force assualted the scouts killing three outright (initiavie 5 due to mark of slaanesh) the sergant hit back but failed to kill the aspiring champion with claws who then caught and killed the sergant.The death leaper and lightning claws aspiring champ were doused in flame and the deathleaper lost a couple wounds to assualt cannon fire all from the venerable dreadnought but both survivied to commit more horrific acts of violence.

Around now it was Mine and S's 2nd turn and the ymgarl genestealers came in on a 4 reserve roll appearing in georges base ! they promptly assualted the devestators killing all of them using the transformation jutsu (this is not naruto but i couldnt resist) The Daemon prince kept being assualted by more and more space marines he lost another wound but narrowly won combat.

George deepstriked his terminators infront of the bulk of the evil force which he later regretted stating" if i had deepstriked them into your base i could have played for the draw!" he opened fire with his storm bolters killing some stuff but not much to worry us at this point. I think S lost one of her tyranid warriors.

The chaos hq squad rapid fired everything at the terminators killing only one thanks to those shots coming from the plasma gun in the squad the burning plasma went straight through the tatical dreadnought armour killing the owner. The Broodlord and his genetealers charged the terminators as did the lightning claws raptor. The tyranid warriors charged the sternguard and the deathleaper charged the venerable dreadnought.

The broodlord and genestealers tore through the terminators with rending claws killin three the remaining one motioned to strike back with his power fist but was cut down by the lightning claw chaos champion before he could raise his deadly weapon in retaliation.

The Daemon prince was finally cut down and returned to the warp after killing a few more marines he served the dark gods well. The deathleaper shot his flesh hooks shaking the dreadnought then promptly tore through the ancient warrior inside with rending hooks wrecking the vehcile. The tyranid warriors beat the sternguard in combat killing the chaplain whilst over at georges base the ymgarl genestealers had been locked in combat with a 5 man squad of marines for several turns as the last marine standing from that squad a heavy bolter guy refused to die fending of the shape shifting genestealers with his combat knife in a last ditch heroic effort to save the day for the imperium against the highly improbable aliance of chaos and tyranids, Finally he was decapitated or something equally gruesome or he survivied ... i forget but george forfitted the game as he had been thourougly beaten before the 5 turn had even begun.

George is first and foremost an eldar player he routinely beats everyone in our gaming circle of friends so don't feel bad for him. But he was a great sportsman and all three of us had a fun time playing this battle which was an awesome one with lots of fluffy stuff happening minus the improbable alliance between xenos and chaos forces. Happy hobbying and ..PEACE!

Christmas Haul

Here is a few pictures of some items we bought around christmas time for our armies.
 Firstly Allan finally got his highly waited for awesome HQ that is the plastic kit Chaos Daemon Prince, assembled with sword (even though he's 40k) because it looked too cool. He is still deciding whether or not to add shoulder pads (I think it'd look really good)
Although he is a wip he has tasted battle and let's just say there are no regrets with this purchase ^_^
Next for my Tyranid army *I choose you Broodlord*
No intro or explanations needed this guy is essential. I absolutely love his stance, I think he looks like a punk rocker. He always plays great and is very point/cost effective I really hope they don't do him over in the next codex.
Since the last post was about selling Allan's Nec scenery collection, which was all we previously used as 40k scenery for games, the next couple of pictures will be of the new scenery we bought. We have always wanted the imperial sector ruins collections.

Firstly the Santum Imperalis, used here in this battle. The detail on these ruins are amazing and we'll show more detailed pictures as they are painted up. It's a really nice building/ruin as there is plently of space to fit a whole units(10 men) obviously lots of cover and endless amounts of atmosphere. EVEN COMES WITH LAMPOST!
 The other building we bought was Manufactorium which we haven't yet assembled.
Allan bought this five man devestater squad on Ebay and haphazardly converted them to a chaos havoc squad using chaos heads and even a captain sicarius head from the BR boxset for the champion's head. They've not been painted yet but have proven very useful on the table top as he previosy had no heavy choice. Now he can stand back and blow shit up.

My next choice for an addition to my army was a Zoanthrope. I eventually want a unit of 2-3 but this guy is actually holding his own. 3+ invunerable and great range with his powerful psychic shooting attacks and such a great detailed finecast model!

And lastly but maybe most important of all I was gifted this shiny book

When I opened this gift then looked over at Allan's Daemon prince gift to himself I almost suspected ulterior motives to buying this book. But after insisting that he wasn't even interested in using thier tutorial to guide him with paiting his model I was convinced of his noble intentions to make me a better painter....even if the book contains no nid tutorials
O_o <---me  

Happy new year all!
