Off to the Guardian Cup!

I finally get to play in a full 2-day ITC format tournament and I'm very happy about it.

I've been playing my list and I'm pretty comfortable with it. I do wish I had a few more points here and there but I can't have everything.

Primary: CAD
HQ (warlord): Zhadsnark 'Da Rippa'
HQ: Painboy, bike

Troop: 15 bikers, nob w/pk&bp
Troop: 15 bikers, nob w/pk&bp

Formation: Ghazzy's bully boyz
5x Meganobz, 1xkillsaw
Battlewagon, ram, 2x big shoota
5x Meganobz, 1xkillsaw
Battlewagon, ram, 2x big shoota
5x Meganobz, 1xkillsaw
Battlewagon, ram, 2x big shoota

That's it. It is a super aggressive list that just wants to run over and punch you in the face.  I think I would run 1 big unit of bikes and 2 units of smaller ones but it's kinda late now - don't want to run a list I have not played.

Anyway that's it for this post.

We'll see how it goes.

Showcase: House Hawkshroud Knight Titans

A big commission is now complete (but still one more to go) of a pair of Knight Titans done up in House Hawkshroud colors.

They turned out absolutely amazing and I'm so very happy.  Yellow was done the same way as always: base of Ushabi Bone with layers of Lamenter's Yellow glaze.  The glaze was thinned down and done in only 2 layers as the customer wanted a lighter yellow then the Imperial Fists bikes I did.

After all that was done then came the decals with lots of Micro-Sol.  However I have to say the decals with this kit are just fantastic.  Thick enough not to break but not so thick as to be hard to work with.  Almost no flash around the image as well making it very easy for the areas the decal touches the raised trim.

Anyway, pics!

Showcase: Icy Ork Goff Bikers

Another finished commission.  This time a full unit of Icy Ork bikers with a painboy.

Some of the models have Spellcrow resin heads. They don't fit perfectly on bikes and will work much better on infantry. Some of them just don't fit at all.

I will be using them for a few games and tournaments, as a 2nd unit next to my own bikes.

Tomorrow: another completed commission.
