February saw a slow down in painting, naturally due to no longer having to rush paint for Warpcon.
That didn’t mean a complete stop. I’ve gotten to the stage where I need to wash 13 of 15 marines. I’ve primed 2 Baal Preds and a rhino as well as 2 land speeders.
No pics, as I never remember to, but I will put some up of the troops once they are all done.
One by one, I’m whittling down the list.
So, I took part in my fifth Warpcon, Warpcon 21. It happened to be Nick Meade’s 21st Birthday too, so I’m amazed his liver survived. 🙂
I brought the Orks with me to Warpcon, and came 41st out of 65 finishers.

I have completed the 3 Big Shootas needed for the army for warpcon.
Well, I have finished to tabletop quality one Ork Nib Biker.
Next for completion are the 3 big shootas.
If I can finish the lootas as well tonight I’ll be delighted.
Then I’ve the trukk and killa kan left besides basing everything I’m done…
So yeah, new year, new post.
This year, 2011, is all about getting stuff done. To that end, I have The List (TM). The List contains everything that I want to get done during 2011. It includes things to do with Warhammer 40,000, World of Warcraft, Gaming in general, and things I want to do in my life.
So, whats on this list, I hear you ask, across the ether and the net? Good question. Sample after the break. Continue reading 2011: The Year of Getting Stuff Done
So tonight was the first game played with the new Space Marine Codex in v5 rules.
I played against Jimmy in an objective game, pitched battle deployment.
And we had a blast! Jimmy brought Tau against my blue boys. We drew, but Jimmy took the moral victory on kill points.
Moment of the match was me rolling shaken result against a bunker. After Jimmy rolled a cover save for it.
Overall, 5th editon games are faster, much more fin to play and against the right opponent, riotous fun!
OK, time to use this blog for what I intended it.
Posting Random crap no one cares about. 😀
I have actually made some progress on my Ork army. 10 Boyz painted, 1 Dipped, 9 almost ready for dipping, 2 Deff Dreads Painted, needing basing. I have Finished 1 whole bike, not the rider, but the bike, maybe needs some little areas touched up with spot colours, but its almost done, the question is dipping it or not.
That leaves me with:
- 2 Bikes to paint, 9 to paint, then assemble (painting them while assembled is a pain in the ass)
- 3 Killa Kans to paint & base
- 20 more boyz to paint, base all 30, dip 29
- 3 rokkit boyz to paint, base & dip
- 3 nobs to paint, base & dip
- 6 nob bikers to paint & dip
- 6 normal bikers to paint & dip
- 3 trukks to paint and assemble
- 10 lootas to paint, base & dip
- 1 small mek & 1 big mek with oiler grot to paint, base & dip
- Ghaz, paint & base
- 3 Deffkoptas to paint
And all for January…
Oh, and I have to finish some Tau & Marines so I can play 5th ed…
Now, as anybody that plays 40k knows, the Ultramarines Army is constantly referred to as the Ultrasmurfs.
Here’s my army for Apocalypse:
