Happy Holidaze to all, and, for those that celebrate it, a very merry Christmas to you all.
Over the weekend I managed to finish up three more Grey Knights - all command elements.
From left to right a Brotherhood Champion, a Brother Captain, and a Justicar.
Brother Champion Tyson - a Headquarters element for the Grey Knights (also a commander option for Kill Team). I put him on a slightly larger base to make him stand out from the others a bit. Unfortunately I two other metal Grey Knight Strike Squads off eBay and both include this figure as the squad's Justicar... Ah, well... They'll go on smaller bases...
Brother Captain Alan - in Terminator Armour. A second Headquarters element for the Grey Knights. Once I have the two other Strike Squads painted I'll be able to field these as an allied "Battalion" Detachment. I have no real desire to add any more to this force.
I don't know... I guess if some one GAVE me a couple of Land Raiders or I happened upon some of those old school metal Grey Knight Terminators...
Justicar Jeff - commander of the first Strike Squad.
The entire force - so far...
I don't have the Grey Knights codex... and... don't really even plan to get it... (Unless I start playing and using these in the league or tournaments... I'm really only planning to use them occasionally when facing chaos in fun games with friends - where we usually just use Power Levels to put together forces and I'll just use the stats I have in the Index: Imperium 1). Using the data sheets from Index: Imperium 1, this force looks like this:
Brother Captain in Terminator Armour - Power Level 9 - Storm Bolter, Nemesis Force Sword
Brotherhood Champion - Power Level 6 - Storm Bolter, Nemesis Force Sword
Strike Squad - Power Level 7
Justicar with Storm Bolter, Nemesis Force Sword
3x Grey Knights with Storm Bolter, Nemesis Force Halberd
1x Grey Knight with Incinerator
Purgation Squad - Power Level 9
Purgator Justicar with Storm Bolter, Nemesis Force Halberd
4x Grey Knight Purgators with Incinerators
A total of 31 Power Level so far. To this I'll be adding another two Strike Squads (Power Level 7) for a total of 45 Power Level - probably in the neighbourhood of 900 points - and then I'm DONE!
In other news...
Look what arrived just in time to give to myself as a Sanguinalia gift! There's a plastic space marine there for scale.
I kind of lucked out with the other two, they were prepped and primed and ready to be painted. This one was fresh out of the box...
Seriously... in came with the original box... and there is going to be a LOT of work to get this prepped for painting - carving/sanding/filing off mould lines - filling air bubbles - repairing other flaws with green stuff... Ugh... It will look pretty rad when it's done though! And though it will take a bit longer that I'd expected (like a LOT longer than I expected) it's still jumped to (very near) the front of the painting queue.
My folks also gave me this for Xmas.... So, I'll be assembling and painting these over the holidaze as well...
Finnegan also got Warhammer Quest: Shadow over Hammerhal, so we'll BOTH be assembling and painting up a storm in hopes of playing a lot of Warhammer Quest in the new year!
Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:
I don't think any of these painting projects will be finished enough to be posting pictures any time soon... so the next posts will probably be looking back at 2018, the Game Plan for 2019, and a December Games Round-up.
