My very first comission

 For my first comission I was asked to paint this dark angel HQ from the dark vengence starter set.
 The model was really fun to paint. It hase some great detail that you dont see until you start the painting.
 I was asked to paint the cloack on his back red, and the sword in such stile.


  I tried to make the photos with no flash, but it turned out to dark. So I needed to take it with the flash. I hope it dosent ruin the over all loock of the model in person. Becouse when I see it I am very happy with the result.
  It took me to long to paint. But I wanted to try out painting for money and how it feels like. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about it.
  I like painting, and I want to paint diferent stuff. And to do so I need to take comissions. But on the other hand, I was so tierd of this model... I wanted to paint my own guys, but I knew that I needed to finish this one first.

 But still. I am very happy with the result. And maybe I will take 5 terminators, for the same client, as my next comission work.

Lizardmen vs dwarves 500p

 This sunday I wanted to have a game of fantasy. And we are having an escalation ligue at our club that I couldent miss.
  So I played vs my gaming budy. When I started warhammer he brought me in to it. At that point he had a chaos army and a samll dwarv force, which I neve played against, becouse he sold them.
 But after many ears he started them again! And now I had the chance to face them.
  I am not a big fantasy player. Altought I like the idea of fantasy more then 40k. Its just the rules that trwo me away from fantasy :(
  But time to time I want to bring m lizardmen to a fest.
 Since I never played vs dwarves I dident know what to expect. The only thing that I know about them is that they have good fire power. And I was right...
 I couldent get my lizards to theyr zone... The shoot me tho pieces. And I badly placed my saurus cavalery... Not evean mentioning my faild charges...
 But still, I had a great time. And I always love to play vs a painted army. And it is defenetly painted really cool! 10 out of 10!
 I also made a battle report of the game. I will try and make battle report o each game that I play. So be sur to see more!

A game vs eldar


 Today I had a game vs eldar. This is my first game vs them. And to be honest, I am not impresed.
 My opponent used snipers, 2 farseers, a big unit of spiders, avengers and reapers.
 He got the first turn and only managed to kill 3 guys from my long fang squad and put a wound on my lone wolf. Oh! And we where playing the mission where you get d3 + 2 objectives.




  So on my turn I moved everything up. The drop pod with one melta and Arjac droped near his warlord. I killed a unit of snipers with my 10 man grey hunter squad by shooting at them. The Arjack unit killed almost all of the farseer unit, leaving only 2 guys alive and took of 2 wounds from the farseer.
 So on the eldar turn started of with the farseer getting perils and dieng. He tried to shoot down my guys but it dident work out. The spiders shoot at those 10 man grey hunters that killed of the snipers and only killed 3 guys. Then they charged in, killed one more and lost the combat (I dont remember how much I killed). So the run away from the table. So my opponent had one farseer with the spiders and 5 man squad snipers all on one hill, with no objectives captured. So my job was only to take cover and camp, so that on turn 5 I could run up and take the objectives. So it ended a win for me. I got first blood, line breaker and taken 2 objectives.
 BTW. We agreed that this will be the first campaingh game, that me, my opponent Sven, and one more member are making. I will try and update you the the campaingh and how it will go.

 I hoped you liked my little review of the game, I will try to be more active. Bu after work I amr really tierd and dont want to do anything...

Game vs necrons!


 Hey! Yesterday I had my very first game vs necrons. And what a game it was!
 First of all I should tell that the necron playe is a fantastic painter. Altought on the pictures it may not seem like that (becouse of my old and bad camera), she is a fantastic painter and paints some fantastic free hand.






 We played a tournament mission. 1250p, kill points. We all had some secrete objectives and some bonuses.
 The game started to m advantige. I got the first turn, and drop poded my guys, that killed 4 guys from the overlord squad.
 My Lasscanons in the long fang squad and ML dident do much, just managed to take of 2 hull point from that barg thingy. But after that, all went down hill for me...

 So this is how the table looked like in the begining.
















From this day on, any one who will say that Ctan shard is a waist of point, dident play him in lower point games. He is a BEAST!  He ripped true everything that I had, and restored his life by killing my guys...

  I decided to take 2 lone wolves, what you see is waht you get. But they perferemed quate bad actually.
 Usually they take out monsters like noting. And they would have taken care of that ctan, if it wasent for one small thing.








 Thy got in to comabt after the Ctan charged my plasma squad. So he hade 10 guys, from who he could restore his wounds... So each time I inflick a wound on him, he restores 2...
 So my lone wolves could finish him of after the squad was killed.



  And how about that! I got 4 wounds, and rolles 4 ones on the armour saves... That was funny ^^)

  So at the end of the game I lost 6 to 4. If my last lone wolve would have died, and killed of that cryptek, it would be a tie. But a game is a game.
  And in this one I was making biiiiig mistakes!!!! I should remember the rules before next game.

Day with Dark Angels

  Hey there! Today was a fantastic day for me. I had 3 games vs dark angels. I always like dark angels, their background and color scheme.

 Many people say that the new codex is underpowered. I say that its not. I felt like it is well balanced and thought out. Yes, some units should have gotten more love than the others, but at least its not grey knights!

  I will not explain the games in depth, but just tell you the main factors and the results.

  So In my list I had 2 units of GH in rhinos. One was 10 man strong with 2 meltas and the second one 8 strong with plasma. One units of 10 guys with 2 plasmas in drop pod. 6 man wolf guard. 4 termi armour, 2 thunder hammer/ storm shield, 2 combo claws and 2 with combi plasma, one had a power sword the other axe, in  power armour in a land raider. And 2/5 man long fangs with 4 ML with a rune priest with divination.

 My opponent had Belial in a command terminator squad with a champion with halleberd. 5 man terminator squad with a plasma cannon. 10 or more dark knights (bikers), 5 man tactical squad. A flier and nephelom (or what ever it is called) land speeder.

So at the first game we got purge the elion. I got the first turn. On the table he had only the 5 man squad, speeder and bikes. I shoot everything I got in to the bikes and killed 75% of them. (With the help of divination). But that wasn't enof.

 At his turn he brought his terminators behind my long fangs and killed the squad with the rune priest, which gave him the first blood. I tried to rally with my termis and the squads in rhinos to shoot his terminators down and then finish them with my terminators. But it didn't work. I mean the Belial squad and my terminators where in combat for 2 turns. So the game ended a los for me. I had 1 victory point and he had 7.



For the second game I knew what to expect from the new dark angels. We rolled of for the same mission, but he got the first turn. He blew up my land rider with one lucky shot from that land speeder with the rending... Then his plasma units where to close to my line and I had no chance of wining at that point, I was surrounded by his army... So I decided to give up, and try one more time vs them.




  The last game was the most interesting. The mission was crusade. We rolled for 5 objectives and he got the first turn. This time I decided to put my rune priest in the rhino with those 8 marines.

 But he deep strike his termis (again) and blew him up, killing the rune priest. He moved up his bikes in my line leaving his 5 man squad guarding the objectives.

 On my turn I deep strike my drop pod and killed of his 5 man unit. Then My marines and termies shoot at the terminators and assaulted them. Mostly the entire game was in the assault. He killed some guys I was killing his termies and bikes. At the 5th turn his flier came out and tried to shoot those grey hunters that deep strike in the drop pod and get them of the 2 objectives that I was holding. The most fun part was when One guy was standing in the middle, and he was holding those 2 objectives all by him self. At that point I only had him and the land rider left. Which also was contesting and objective.

  Know when think about it, and should have just moved all my tanks and max speed away from the terminators instead of charging them. The bikes wouldn't be a treat for me at that point. Since the power of the new dark angels codex is in synergy. The units separately will die like nothing.

Red corsairs hellbrute

 Hi guys! Here I have for you a chaos hellbrute from warhammer 40k starter set.

 When the sate came out I was already excited for the models. But in time my excinment for the cultists and chosen disappeared. But not for this guy! I think this is the best dreadnought out there! And he stands near the forgeworld nurgle dread. Thats my own opinion.

 I started painting this guy in December, but then I kinda lost interest in painting (As I do some times). So he was standing on the shelf gathering dust.

 I often visit battlereporter.freeforums.org , as it is my very first warhammer forum that I joined. They started a painting competition, and I immediately grabbed my hellbrute. But my problem was that it had some base colors. He had the dark reds on him and some flesh. But the member agreed that it is far from done. THX GUYS!
 

 So on my free days I was painting him. I saw plenty of pictures of him painted by other people, and the biggest mistake I noticed (my opinion) is that people paint the fleshy parts in the same color as the rest of the model. As you can see in the starter box.

 I decided that its a bad idea, and went for flesh colors. And I am happy with the result. I also like how my red turned out. Its blood red. On my other corsairs I was it with the red was, and it darkens it a little bit. But here I decided not to, and I am happy that I didn't.




The only problem that I I had painting the model was the face. I couldn't paint his eyes... After plenty of failed tries I went for dark eyes. And it turned out better then I expected.



 The back of the model was I pain to paint. I always use dark spray paint. And painting elf flesh on top of chaos black was a pain. I needed 5 layers of elf flesh to hide the black that was seen under the flesh.

  I never understood how to highlight properly. After some tries I finally got it! And the flesh on this model is highlighted to the right standards!

 I also added some skull white with elf flesh mix to some flesh parts, so that they will stand out. But not to all of them.


 All in all I am very happy with the model. But from 1 to 10, I would give my self a 7. I need to paint more, to get to the standards I want. And this model was a great chance to learn more!



 And here is my band together! Next stop are 5 more marines, 2 bikes and HLEDRAKE!!!

How I got in to WARHAMMER.

Hi. Want to give this forum more life. Its to quiet around here :P .
I was painting my hellbrute model for the painting competition, and I asked my self, why do I do this?. So, when I was a kid, I always where in the miniature gaming kinda thing. I played ROBOGEAR, Mekh attack, and other games from Russia. I liked playing them, the thing that I liked the most was that I could make up my own story after the game. So I asked my mom to have a little campaingh with me (I didn't even know that that was a canpaingh back then.) I picked a army full of mechanized zombies and humanoid lizards as my 2 groups, my mom picked knights and other human race, similar to bretonians. We made up an story on why do they fight with each other. And after each game we progressed the story with updates, based on how the game went on. So we had a game every day for one week. And after we had a small, 2 big peace of paper with story in it.
Then I started growing up, and I wanted to have a game that is more deep in stories, and more harder to get in. I found DnD, but didn't find any one in the internet who would play it in my country... Latter I was searching google for pictures of the new range of models, for that game that we played with my mom. And I saw 3 models, that where so amazing!!!!! They where warriors of chaos. I was just shoked how awesome they where! Then I saw 40k chaos space marines and spawns. I didn't have no idea what are they, or what game is it. I thought that those spawns are actually some aliens, and the marines are some gladiators from future :lol:
So I checked the warhammer site for more info. Just belive me when I say this, when I opened the site I fell of my chair! For me it was heaven. I picked dark elves as my first army. I didn't even check 40k section back then, because I always was in fantasy stuff. As my second choice, I picked WoC. I started to read the story of the 2 armies, and I denied WoC, since I am religions person, and back then I was kinda scared of them, because the warship deamons.
So afcourse my country didn't have any stores that where selling warhammer stuff. I noticed latter on that they have a shop in Finland. And its only 1.5 hours on a ship from my home town. I asked my mom to go there. So we did. The problem was that the shop, on the internet cart was to far away, something like 1 hour on foot. And when we got there, the shop wasn't no where to be found. But near it was a magic the gathering shop. I asked the owner of that shop about GW, and he told me that they've got closed and moved some where else, but hi didn't know where....
So I got very upset about it, my mom got angry. And we went to some kind of MEGA mall some where in the center of Helsinki. So what do you think? We got lost at the mall.... So we where searching for the exit (And guys, that mall, is a LABYRINTH!) We turned some where and got out on the parking lot. Long story short, we got out from the parking lot and what do you know, I was standing right in front of the GW store. I still think my mom was way happier that me at that point.
So back then my mom both me a Old metal Hydra (which I still have), High elve dragon, box of 5 Command exequs.... (the dark elve guys), box of corsairs, dark elf corsair hero, sorcerer, cold one knights, and I think thats it.
So that how I got in to the hobby. I had a very long time in solo playing, since I didn't know people who could play in my home town. Until I got a PM on attlereporter.freeforums.org/ from a guy who is also from Tallinn, and he gave me the link to the Tallinn gaming forum, and phone numbers who I can contact.
  So since then I play warhammer. The gaming group from my home town have shown me how to play fantasy, and latter on asked me if I am interested in 40k. So that is my story of how I got in to the hobby.

Lone wolf 6th edition tactics



Hi. I am not a master in tactics. But I wanted to share with you with my thoughts about lone wolves.


Unit Name: Lone Wolf
  
Unit Type: Elite 

Construction: Using the space wolves pack or wolf guard terminator boxes.

Unit Deployment: In cover.

Unit in play: Stand alone model.
  
Unit is most effective against: Monsters and walkers.
  
General Discussion:
 Its an elite slot. It’s a one model unit that can kill a monster or a walker in 1 or 2 hits.


What do you get for your points?
 Ok, so you get a lone model that is under 30 points. He is fearless, feel no pain and eternal warrior. That’s already great! Plus he can reroll his hits in combat against monsters, walkers and everything that has T6. So for the points you get a hunter for monsters. The big downside is that he is a pack of one, and because of that he is very weak against hordes…
  Also they work good in pairs. Take two lone wolves and play them near each other, to provide some extra buff. Belive me, my blood angel opponent couldn't kill those 2 guys with a squad of 10 death company and 5 assault marines. They also work good as your line protectors. How often do your long fangs get charged by some big tyranid monster or some other stuff? And while all of your main forces are in the center of the table, the long fangs are an easy kill for your opponent. So hide your lone wolf some where in terrain near the long fangs, and provide them some support in close combat, or at least you will get an extra turn of shooting with them, while your lone wolf will be stuck in combat with what ever is running towards your long fangs.
  So basekly he is a character that cant join units.

Wargear options:
 As I said, they have some great wargear options. But you should have in mind what game style you play. Is it an aggressive or protective.
 Power sword. - No good…
 Wolf claw – Good, but not great…
 Power fist, frost blade or frost axe – there are better options.
 Thunder hammer or storm shield – good. Storm shield will give you the invul. Save that you need. Since your wolf will be targeted by shooting. Thunder hammer is also good.
 Termi armour. – Its good for that +2 armour save. But the big down side is that you cant run him then, if you want to get him in your opponent lines. Now, I use my lone wolf to protect my lines. And my opponent usually run in to him like suckers! Tyranid players always drop something in they're pods or deep strike those monsters. So my lone wolf in termi armour, storm shield and thunder hammer has always work to do. And belive me, he will not die!
 Combi weapons – if you want to get that one extra attack on a charge, go for it. But I wouldn't recommend it.
 Chainfist – Also a great option. Hi will open those tanks like a tin can.
 Melta bombs – No need.
 Up to two wolves – If you want some extra wounds on him, go for it. I take two wolves with him.
 Mark of the wulfen – Waste of points if you ask me…


How to play the Lone wolf?
 Give him termi armour, thunder hammer and storm shield and guard you lines. Or give him two wolves, storm shield and some other weapon and run in to the center of the table. But he works best as a protector rather then an attacker.


Conclusion:

  He is good against monsters, walkers and T6. He is a dead man against horde. He is under 30 points with no upgrades. He has feel no pain and eternal warrior. He is GREAT!
