Killteam 2.0 - Part V

With the oral presentation in my General Language Course done, here's a new update for you about my Kill Team 2.0 just as I promised.

Forge World has delivered pretty quickliy and so I could finish building the human scum for the KT; the Heavy stubber team will be built this afternoon.

The paint job on the Predator is also in an advanced state, I need to have finished it by Sunday.

New week, new stuff

I arrived back home from a visit at my parents yesterday evening and when I checked my postbox I found two nice things: a card that stated that a parcel is waiting for me at the local post office and an air couchion envelopment with the needed bitz for my next Iron Warriors tank. I instantly knew that the parcel was my new airbrush compressor and I was very delighted!

So I traipsed to the post office today and schlepped the 7kg heavy parcel home. Here's a pic of the old and new compressor:

Quite a difference, eh?

And these are the bitz for the tank (you can guess what it will be):

And a quicktip for you:
Everytime I visit the town where I used to go to school I drop in on the local Tedi store - that's a German (and Dutch?) market chain where you can buy lots of different stuff from 1 to 3 EUR. I always buy there some packs of super glue. That's 5 tubes à 2g for 1 EUR. They work pretty well and are very abundant. So there's no need to buy those branded and expensive stuff.

Even more Iron Warriors...

This week's last update: a handful of Iron Warriors, including one flamer and one plasmagun which gives me a total of 2 for each special weapon.

I also played three games yesterday evening at our club's monthly meeting. I won two times against Tau and Dark Angels and suffered one defeat against Tau. We played 850 pts. to test our army lists for next week Sunday's tournament i mentioned before here.

I created and painted the bases for the cannonfodder today:

Now it remains to hope that Forge World will deliver soon.

Killteam 2.0 - Part III

The Chimera/ Scout Sentinel is finished save some details and rework:

Killteam 2.0 - Part II

I've added some details on the Chimera (which can also be used as a Scout Salamander I noticed) yesterday evening/night:

Killteam 2.0

The next Kill Team tournament will take place in mid December: Adeptus Illuminatus IX

I have to confess that I nearly bought some Necrons to build a Kill Team and I even painted a test mini. But then I remembered playing my Iron Warriors for the first time on the last KT tournament and bethought me of staying loyal to Chaos. ;-)

 I'll have some cannonfodder... er... excuse me, human reinforcements in the KT as I'll be using the Renegades and Heretics army list from Imperial Armour 5. And they bring along some ramshackle armour: a Chimera!

New CC arm for the Dreadnought

Here's the next mini-update for you guys: a new arm for the Dreadnought

I hoped I could purchase a right CC arm of the Furioso Dreadnought kit and I'd have converted it in order to fit to the other CC arm I previously built. But they are mostly sold for more than 10 EUR on ebay. I won't pay through the nose when I can buy an appropriate one at FW's for less.

I'll play the Dreadnought with the weapons shown above on the 850 pts. tournament I'm going to organize on December 4th: 4. Battlepatrol Ratisbona

I already had two test games with my army list against a mate who's going to play my Defenders of Vraks - and I won both, 1x 6:0 and 1x 4:2. I'm quite content.

Last Sunday's tournament

I attended another tournament with my Iron Warriors last Sunday playing Codex Space Wolves. The codex offers lots of opportunities and I'm really content with it. And as long as I don't play 3x Long Fangs with loads of missile launchers, Thunderwolf Cavalry and all the other uber units I guess no one will complain about that.

Here some pics of the stuff I painted for the tournament: 3 Warriors with boltguns and a banner plus 3 magnetized Terminator arms

And a summary of the 4 games:

1st match vs. Tyranids: Defeat (15:5)
2nd match vs. Tau: Victory (17:3)
3rd match vs. Blood Angels: Defeat (2:18) [Mephiston sucks so hard...]
4th match vs. Space Wolves: Victory (14:6)

Total of 38 tournament pts. and a 14th place out of 26. Way better than the previous results I achieved using the codex SM. ;-)
