Grey Knights Librarian

I couldn't face painting more silvery marines tonight so I built up the librarian - he's the standard Space Marine Librarian with a few bits of Grey Knight plastics to help him fit it. 

If things go to plan I'll get him silvered up tomorrow...

Grey Knights Dreadnought

Another update... As expected the Dreadnought was pretty quick to paint and here he is:

And here's Coteaz, now with cold feet...

Inquisitor Coteaz is (almost) done

Much to my delight, Inquisitor Coteaz is finally finished after what feels like hundreds of six-minute painting sessions spread over several weeks. Here's how he turned out (the base is still to be flocked):

And at a slightly different angle:

This means that once his base is done I've got myself a legal army of around 1000 points. Next up I think it'll be the dreadnought for a slightly quicker painting win...

Grey Knights: What is this thing?

I've just finished the next recruit to the Grey Knight army, this time it's a weird cherub thing. I'm not sure what he actually does (or is) but I really like the figure, he makes a nice change from all the Grey Knights so I'd like to think he'll make it onto the tabletop. Here he is:

A quick edit... It turns out that he is a familiar and, under the last codex he'd have given +1 initiative to the Inquisitor. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be the option for this in the current codex so he's more likely to be a stand-in servo skull or maybe a mystic or a psyker. I seem to remember that there are at least two other creepy cherubs out there (one with a book and one with a bolter) and I'd quite like to collect them all so that they can flutter around Inquisitor Coteaz looking suitably weird!

Here are pics of the two I've found online:

Cake for the Cake God!

With the Warmaster One Dayer this coming weekend the Grey Knights have been put aside in favour of one more unit of Chaos Knights. Here they are, ready to cause mayhem on Saturday:

As you can (maybe) see, I've added in a trumpeting hero from the Character pack (one of the knights had gone astray), and snipped a couple of strips in order to mix up the position of the Knights to mask the lack of variety.

Grey Knights: Quads...

A cheap and cheerful bit of painting today sees the anti-aircraft wing of the Grey Knights arrive. Two Quad guns and a Lascannon thing, along with a bit of wall for hiding behind.

The Fat lad of Nurgle

Alright Dude,
I am having trouble uploading photos on to the blog tonight - trying to do so has caused my computer to freeze twice already, so I'll give the description here, then the related photos in a 2nd post - if I can get it to work.
I started off with a black undercoat (can't beat it) then did the base and watched the arm fall off...
I then dry brushed the whole thing with dark flesh. In a moment of inspiration I also did the rust on the monster's mighty blade, so that is almost ready to go!
Then the big lad recieved a thorough dry brushing with a 50:50 mix of catachan amd camo green. This has then been followed by a dry brushing of camo green and finally a dry brush of rotting flesh. That's where I'm up to. Next up I'm going to paint (not dry brush) the guts a deep red, then it's the very fiddly painting of the bone parts. Bleached bone for that. The fat lad is littered with these, so that will take a while...

Pictures to come.

Grey Knights: Hammertime

In the words of MC Hammer, 'you can't touch this.' Why? Because the second helping of snow flock is still drying. So here he is, the Dreadknight: I'll concede that he looks like he's armed himself with a toffee hammer but he is still a most fearsome engine and a rather nice centrepiece to the army so far.

With this model painted, my army stands at 755 points (with the following list):
  • Vindicare Assassin
  • Grey Knight Strike Squad (5), Hammer, Psycannon, + psybolt ammo
  • Grey Knight Strike Squad (5), Halberd, Psycannon + psybolt ammo
  • Grey Knight Interceptor Squad, MC Falchions, Incinerator + psybolt ammo
  • Nemesis Dreadknight, Hvy Psycannon, Daemonhammer
Next on the paintstation will be Inquisitor Coteaz, which will mean I'll have a legal army of 855 points. At the same time I'll paint up my quad gun which, with the defence line that's already painted, will bring this up to 955... Nearly there for the 1000 point game we're planning.

Grey Knights: Reinforcements from Titan

A little bit of work today sees the next unit of Grey Knights complete. This time it's an Interceptor Squad with their teleporer-stick backpacks.

Here's the army as it currently stands:

Right now I'm wondering if these dark and dirty Grey Knights might like to be splattered with Daemon blood. Thoughts?
