2nd Company Command Squad: for B&C badab challenge

Rightio, i gave you a wall of text last time so today we get a wall of pictures.

this pic is mainly to show of broms updated power weapon and new bionic arm.. also it looks cool!

As of yet unamed apothecary, hes 98% forgeworld, but i removed the head for future use and to complete the bare headed look of the squad.

This is Haydn Lang due to the fact that he has the same plastic head as one of the sergeants he is the non identical (different hair colour) twin to Rikart Lang.. the dude with the combi melta and fist.. the banner needs more work but he has been based since this pic (see group shot)

Eidhart Abendroth, everyones favourite ex ganger nutcase company champion.

Then finally we have the least finished dudes in the squad Jori Mauer and Lanzo Kolman (in order)

oh and heres their ride (makeshift turret till FW one arrives)

I've got 2 days left to finish the squad, then the transport and whatever other jazz i decide upon is to be done for next month.. hopefully you've enjoyed the pics rather than the text for once.

Working to a deadline and feedback

Todays sporadic update doesnt include any pictures, not because I havent done anything but because I spend too much time ignoring my duties as a voice on the internet and worrying about what I have thats worthwhile to post.

Today that all changes. I have been plodding along with my badab war challenge thing over on the B&C and enjoying painting stuff. Normally i have some serious hobby adhd and am flitting from one project to the next until something grabs my attention long enough to get done (normally nothing to do with my current army) but I have finally found the kind of motivation I need and its in the form of not wanting to bring shame to my name by failing a challenge and the positive feedback that you get when you post fancy things and people like them.

Now my new airbrush arrived recently and Im not going to review it or anything like that because many people have already done that and its not what I'm about (along with correct punctuation and grammar) I will however say that I'm really pleased with it, its a definite improvement on my old one (considering the price tag You'd hope so) I ended up going for the Badger Renegade Krome & I would recommend it.

Thats enough of that, its time to talk Fire Angel.
The command squad is coming along nicely now, I'm very close to finishing the 4th member of the squad (all will have touch ups done at a later date, but deadlines are deadlines) and have updated Brom's relic blade to fit in with the black/purple/white of the power weapons all be it in a darker shade of purple and with quite a lot less white.. its a subtle difference but enough of one in my opinion to show that it is a "power weapon plus."

I also managed to talk to Chris Innes from the 'eavy metal team the other day about painting (it was this talk that helped me figure out how to do the glass vials on the apothecary which i was coming up blank on) it was interesting talking to him and it seemed a little refreshing for him to talk about the finer aspects of paint rather than dealing with the over excited 13 year old kid who was intent on telling him every intricate detail about a game he played the other day, overall i can say it was a positive experience and if you ever get the chance to talk to him its worthwhile as hes a cool guy.

I'll be posting up more pictures of things soon and hopefully not neglecting the blogging as much.. I might even demand shardy boy to assist in making this look all fancy like rant in e minor and pimping lorin alpha out across the interwebz.

Peace Y'all.

No witty title just a fancy picture and some words

Yeesh i need to update this more often..

I've been faffing about with things that dont need doing recently (painting warmachine stuff & building shelves etc) rather than concentrating on the fangles.. i mainly blame the fact that im waiting for 6th ed to drop and ruin half my army choices..

as a few of you are probably aware by now i've been working on my skillz with an airbrush and have been enjoying my time faffing about with the one i have atm.. it is however a little on the limited side and a pain in the ass to clean.. so im upgrading.

ive also joined in with a badab war painting challenge thing on the bolter and chainsword and have said ill paint up a command squad and character by the end of the month (now looking impossible due to missing parts) so it looks like im just going to have to do what i can and hope that Ead has good news for me on wednesday..

but anyway enough of my wall of text.. heres a picture of the company champion Eidhart Abendroth
