Apocalypse – toys

Ohh I did some eBay shopping… I found this one a few weeks ago – I now have a Cobra to go with my ArmorCast Scorpion.

I have never been totally happy with the Scorpion paint and modeling…. and the cobra is worse as far as I am concerned.  The cobra also appears to be missing some bits.  My plan is to strip both of these and paint them to match closer to my other Eldar forces…. and the Phantom Titan.  For now they will stay this way – until I get time for them.

The Scorpion has nice paint for the wraith bone elements.  But the theme doesn’t fit my army well on the blue – cammo.  I will try to put a light primer brush on coat… only on the top parts.  There are some modeling and magnetizing to do as well.  The bone colors will just get a lightening up – to better match the bone on my style.

The Cobra is really not even close to what I expect for my stuff… it will be fully stripped and redone – to match whatever I end up doing to the Scorpion.

What’s up? – Black Friday Apoc and nurgle

Wow, it’s been a few weeks and here’s the short and sweet recap. Thanksgiving started with a morning hike … Followed with good food with friends and family. Black friday started with breakfast with a gaming friend.. And followed with 8-9 hours of warhammer apocalypse madness. It was an awesome game and we kept it simple. We had lots of super heavies and titans… About 7 players which had 5000 pts each player. We worked to balance out the points differential with allowing destroyed units to come back after turn 3 … Which seemed to work out fine in our fun game.

After Friday I had a busy weekend… Then Monday I came down with a horrendous cold… Probably given to me by a stray shot from the nurgle plague tower in our black Friday game. I missed 3 days work. I am still recovering … And I must make it to work this week.

I will leave you with some shots of my weekend… Including shots from black Friday apoc… Hope to get to feeling better soon so I can unpack my army from the apoc game.
