Showcase: Ravenwing

I completed the Ravenwing command squad with it's Apothecary so now my entire Ravenwing detachment is complete. Pretty darn happy with how it came out, even though it was pretty tedious with the line highlighting.   I'm thinking about picking up the Dark Angels side of Dark Vengeance so I can have pretty much just a DA army. Just for fun.

Lots more to paint!

Superfriends 3.0

I'm finding the more targets I present the better my list does. In that flavor, I've come up with a great way to add an equally deadly yet super aggressive unit to my list. And make the Thunderwolves even better!

Great Wolf Detachment:
HQ: WGBL, Runic armor, thunderwolf, SS, Fist

Elite: 5 Wolf Scouts
Elite: 5 Wulfen, 3xTH/SS 2x Frost Claws

Fast: Drop Pod
Fast: Thunderwolf Cav x5, 5x SS, 1x Fist

Allied Detachment:
HQ: Sanguinary Priest, Bike

Troops: Tactical squad x5, Heavy Flamer, Combi-Melta, Drop Pod

Ravenwing Strike Force:
HQ: Sammael

Fast: Black Knights x5, meltabombs
Fast: Black Knights x5, meltabombs

Elite: Ravenwing Command Squad, Apothecary

So the Wulfen go in the drop pod and come in turn 1.  That gives my opponent a serious problem: Shoot the Wulfen or the Thunderwolves.  Since the Iron Priest got moved to HQ, the scouts become a 70 point tax to give the Thunderwolves WS5 - totally worth it!  I can move the WGBL to the Command squad if I need to hit multiple units in CC, and he'll still get FNP. 

Wulfen are completely bad-ass. For the points they really present a serious threat. 

I've got the models now and I have a lot of work to do before Storm of Silence 4!

Showcase: Evil Sunz Blitza-Bommer and Air Armada!

Now that I have models to paint again, I'm ramping back up to my old pace fairly quickly.  Just a few hours of work on this.  Airbrushed the base colors Saturday night, then after work Sunday and a bit today around other stuff and it's done.

I'm also very happy with the P40 Warhawk inspired nose art freehand I did.

And, now the whole Air Armada!! That's a lot to try and fit in a single pic!

Now I need to complete my Ravenwing.

Showcase: Ravenwing Black Knights

First unit of Black Knights are complete.  I decided on a way to designate units, and that's with different color of plasma.  

Next up, more of the same!
