I've been working on a pair of Thunderfire Cannons for the upcoming NoVa Open Charity Auction. The guns are almost complete. Techmarines are base-coated. Here is a quick progress shot from the workbench. More photos to come soon!
They have a number of awesome armies up for auction plus other goodies. Please check it out and buy some tickets. All proceeds will go to Doctors without Borders.
...and here are the guys who rode in the Assault Ram in The Old Line
Massacre Apocalypse Game. They were actually pretty darn effective. The
burninated the better part of Death Guard Tac. Squad and took out a
Terminator or two.
This big mama was the keystone of my 3000-point army at the Old Line Massacre. I ordered it at Adepticon but it took its time getting here (and I took my sweet time getting around to building it) so I was in hobby overdrive mode the week before the event. And yes, in case you were wondering, Dave Taylor did blow it up with his damn Reaver Titan.
Sorry I've been so long without a post! I took a bit of a hobby break after Adepticon, but wound up working furiously towards the end of May to get my Alpha Legion ready for a 30K Weekend Event put together by my friends and I. The Old Line Massacre was a two-day even at Dropzone Games in Maryland. Champion hobby hero Ty Finocchiaro put together a great little 1850-point tournament on Saturday and the illustrious Nate Taylor ran an amazing Apocalypse game on Sunday. Hobby superstars Dave Taylor and John Steining were both present with beautiful armies and the level of painting modeling was spectacular all around. Also a huge shout out to my pals Nate Taylor and Robin Everett-McGuirl who have churned out amazing 30K armies this year and made huge strides with their hobby skills.
I had a fantastic time at Adepticon and played lots of games with my Alpha Legion against many great opponents. After ten tournament games I'm feeling a lot more confident about my 40K/30K skills ... just in time for the rumored rules update, doh!
This is what an awesome army looks like.
First up was the Horus Heresy Massacre tournament on Thursday. The tournament turned out to be a (suprise!) team tournament so I teamed up with Robin (aka Ripper) who also had his Alpha Legion with him. Overall, there were lots of great looking armies and friendly players, I will be back next year for sure! The hilarious twist of the tournament was that everyone betrayed their partner in the last game and switched teams. My crew had a very good showing in the end. My friend John tied best over all with his World Eaters, Ty got a much deserved Best Painted Award with his Mixed Isstvaan III Loyalists and I snagged the Player's Choice Award. See below for army photos, sorry if I missed anyone's!
