Just a quick update.
I bought a copy of the new Codex Inquisition and am now pouring through the rules section. Wow. So far it looks like they are going back to a model that resembles 40K life pre-2011 as Inquisitor warbands are back as an ally choice --- But wait, no--- they are their own NEW type of detachment! Read more on it here.
The Meta is going to take a hit. Again. I honestly think the new Meta is going to be no meta (Not a bad thing really.) So far I am really liking it. If this trend keeps up tournament organizers are going to have some tough decisions to make in 2014. Good Luck
Get the book here
I was at Huzzah Hobbies today and got a chance to play a demo of Star Trek Attack Wing. Jay from 24 hour Gamer ran me through a one-on-one encounter between the Enterprise-D and a Romulan Warbird. It was a lot of Fun. I won but I think Jay was taking it easy on me. When the wife showed up I got her to try it out and she took the mighty Klingon Battle cruiser against my Undefeated Enterprise and manager "mop the floor" with the Federation Flagship. :(
We had so much fun we bought a starter set.
Lastly I wanted to share a new project with you. After reading the Codex: Black legion book I was inspired to get Abaddon for my CSM. I do not like the model so decide dto make my own. I started with the Chaos Lord in Terminator armor kit and raided my bits box. here is what happened.
|The basics of the Talon of Horus: Lightning claw arm + 2 Old school Bolters cut down to fit|
|I decided to add an ammo storage bin just for kicks and it turned out pretty good.|
|A better angle|
|The Basis of the Demon sword: Power Ax Arm + Blade from a blood letter|
|Abaddon's head is from the Chaos Marauders set for Fantasy|
|The rest was put together from the lord kit taking parts from the warlord and sorcerer build outs.|
|The base was the normal lord base with rocks and stuff added from the death world basing kit|
|A better look at the gun|
|The eye of Horus|
|Primed with an up close of the face|
|Ready to be painted|
Well that's all I have time for right now so let me know what you think.

I cannot believe it but the Reaver is finally done! I don't have much to say except it was a labor of love. 25+ hours of prep (Sanding, Dremel, scraping, cutting) just to get it ready to prime. 50+ hours to paint (Air brush and brush.) I do not think I can remember working this hard on a single piece. GW was not kidding when they said a titan is like an army by itself they meant getting it table ready!
Well here is what you came here for:
|What the troops see|
|What Fliers see|
|What sneaky Gits see|
|Details of the cover|
|For Scale- WH Giant 6' tall|
|1st attempt at this kind of effect!|
Anyway That's it for today...
