Defkopta complete plus more

Finished the looted defkopta and took a couple pics with it's unit.

Not much to say, just pics:

3 Defkoptas with TL big shootas, one with a buzzsaw.  It's always been a useful unit, by harassing, drawing fire, and going for that linebreaker point.

Road to the Bay Area Open..ends here.

I am completely heartbroken. I wont be able to attend the Bay Area Open after getting news my car has a blown head gasket.  The money I saved for the trip now has to go to either repair or a temporary car.

I'm still working on getting my Orks completed, as I want to be fully painted for league play.

I'll have to try again next year.

On March 16th is the Guardian Cup 5, so I'll probably be playing that instead.   Same points level, so I can use my BaO list.

Road to the Bay Area Open 6

Hey progress is not going as much as I would have liked. I was expecting to be done by now, but not even close!

I still have at least 9 sets of arms to paint, paint the slugga arm and touch up the big mek, finish the defkopta (rider is done though) and rebase my Tau units.  Sigh.

At least some of that is optional. I don't *have* to rebase my Tau. I have 14 total sets of arms to paint, but only need 9 for the BaO.

While waiting for primer to dry, I broke out my first box of Savage Orcs and put 6 of them together. They are super easy to assemble but painting them is going to be booring...lots of bone and wood.

Anyway, pic.

Road to the Bay Aera Open 5

Hey things are coming along just fine.

Finished 13 sets of arms so far (14 to go), finished and primed the defkopta.   I'll be working on those, I want them all done.

I also picked up a "new" camera. We'll see how it works out.

I keep thinking I need to practice, but I realized I've been playing the same list for 2 years. I think I've done enough practicing.  Just need to work out ideas to counter certain lists (like flamers and helldrakes), but I'm pretty sure I got that down.

The only thing that worries me is the Dark Angels dakka banner.. I really don't know what I can do against 30+ bikes putting out 4 TL shots each...just hope for good dice I guess :)

Here is a pic with the new camera of the built defkopta.

That's it for now!

Road to the Bay Area Open 4

So of the list of things to do before the BAO the one I've put lowest on the list is painting new tau models.  Instead I've decided to build and paint another looted jetbike for my defkopta unit.

Also slowly working on getting arms painted.  After breaking out my hobby stuff from storage (still missing some of it! arg!)  I was able to varnish and base the models I painted last couple of weeks and move on.

So far, so good.  Lining up the arms is turning out to be harder then I remember...well it was 5 years ago..

I still need to figure out some ammo feeds and maybe replace the wings with something else.  Undecided.
