Nice man, I really like that model and it looks great done up in your color scheme. I wouldn't worry about the dozer blade too much, the ramming part of a tank will tend to warp a bit

Thanks!

This is another one of those models I'd been eyeing for a long, long time, but after seeing a bunch in the flesh (well, resin) I had to pick one up! Here's my Sicaran Battle tank:

I really loved painting this thing, and there's something gratifying about spending hours doing countless thin coats of white only to splatter mud all over them!

I finished up a quad mortar and the Praetor from Betrayal at Calth. I didn't like his head (I think Aethon is a tool) so I swapped it out for one of the super Greco-Roman heads from the Ultramarines sprue. I'm super happy with how his cape came out, especially the transfer:

NIce.

I think the cape could benefit from a white pinstripe around the edge.

Boston finally got an official Games Workshop presence with the new Warhammer store in Brookline! In addition to all the launch festivities, today was also Armies on Parade. I brought my Heresy Ultramarines and the storied and beaten display board that I used with my Valhallans. It did give me an opportunity to shoot a family photo with the army though:

There were also some other really neat armies on display, like these Necrons with their awesome display board:
Image
Image
Image

These Imperial Fists with frankly amazing skin tones:
Image
Image
Image

Some Dorfs (I think the display board let them down, the models themselves were real nice)
Image

This guy's Tau/Necron display board which still smelled like aerosol. The guy who made it had apparently been up for like 30 hours and was hopped up on ritalin and still had yellow and brown paint all over his hands. Neat idea though:
Image

Some good looking Daemons:
Image
Image

A good looking army of Stormcast:
Image

At the end of the day, everyone in the store got to vote on their favorite army. The Imperial Fists took Bronze, my Ultramarines took silver, and the Necrons took gold! I've gotta hand it to the Necron guy, his army looked good, had an unusual color scheme, and his display board was excellent. I think that's what let me down here, but that just means I've got to do better on my next display board!
Image

There's some models in the cabinets:
Image

And both the Necron guy and I got to display a model in there too!
Image

Finally, I got some cool stuff and brought it home in a Warhammer bag, which my cat got to enjoy:

What an awesome thing. It's nice to know there are people excited about 40k somewhere.

Holy crap! I haven't seen skin that beautiful since last night on the internet.

Congratulations on the Silver, man! (For my money, it's those Invictus Suzerains that puts your army a step above.)

Thanks! I just wish I brought my A game on the display board.

I was fortunate enough that the manager at my local Warhammer store was able to hold one of these guys for me - I painted the limited edition dude and I'm pretty happy with the results.

Thanks!

My Ultramarines took the field in their first ever game, this time at my local GW store. The table didn't have enough cover and I think it might have just been a tough matchup, but my Ultramarines annihilated the Emperor's Children across from them. The traitors made a beeline for my troops, trying to get into assault, but fell short every time. Eidolon and his boys got boltered to death, and a Fury of the Legion attack wiped out the Emperor's Children on my left flank. The only unit to almost get into assault was a biker, who got killed by overwatch fire. Things seemed like they might turn around when his Storm Eagle showed up, blasting half of a tactical squad and wrecking the Sicaran, but my Deredeo Deredreadnought shot it down over the course of two turns, causing it to Crash and Burn and kill all but one of the Terminators inside, who was then shot down by the remainder of my tactical squad. Still, my opponent was a gracious and friendly guy despite the massacre, and I hope to play him again!

Also for those curious, the right flank past the bastion basically became the dedicated dead model zone, save for my veterans who outflanked there and had nothing to do.

Another squad of Cataphractii Terminators - these guys were fun to paint!

Looking good Campbell! Those termies look very sharp. And no one will really notice Mr Crooked Sword's sword! The blue is very crisp on these guys and looks great!

Thanks Brad! And hey, some chainswords just curve to the left or the right a little bit, it's totally normal for a growing Astarte.
