Here is a picture of my painted Imperial Knights (and the Vendetta because I was gluing its twin-linked lascannon back onto its wing).
|All my Imperial Knights have been painted!|
The poor Vendetta hasn't been painted yet, but I've used my spray paint and coated it entirely in black paint. It'll be using the same color scheme as my Imperial Knights. Black, gold, yellow, a bit of red and white. Yay,
|The whole army (except the Vendetta) has been painted!|
Even bigger news. I've finally gotten my hands on a Baneblade! WOOHOO! And a Company Command Squad. I'll be able to finally finish my army at this rate. By Thursday if all goes well. I'm still waiting on my 2 Veteran squads and Leman Russ Executioner, and if they come on Thursday, just in time for me to assemble them, my army will be complete. YAY!
I'm going to build a Doomhammer, magnetize it so that I can swap it for a Stormsword sometimes. I'll be using these 2 variants the most.
|And so I've finally bought a Baneblade! As well as a Company Command Squad|
The idea is to have a Company Command Squad with Kurov's Aquila and 2 Veteran squads using the Doomhammer as a transport. They will be armed with 8 to 10 plasma guns and 2 autocannons or 1 autocannon and 1 lascannon, depending on the build. Since 10 of them can shoot from the troop loading bay, I'll be raining down either 10 plasma volleys or 8 plasma volleys and a couple of autocannon bursts. Makes more sense, right? With a Leman Russ Executioner, fully equipped with plasma cannons, as an escort, and 2 Imperial Knights protecting the Doomhammer, the Draconis Regiment is going to be a very plasma-orientated army. Yay. Though it hurts to have only 1 Vendetta, and I do wish I could get more Leman Russ Executioners, but hey. It's fine. We'll see what happens. I also need to experiment a bit with my Stormsword build as well so we'll see.
I might get a couple of Forgeworld flyers (a Vulture Gunship with Punisher cannons and an Avenger Strike Fighter with autocannons) in April, depending, and finish up with 2 Leman Russ Executioners in May. As I said, we'll see what happens. I can't wait!
And I can probably start writing the Draconis Regiment story this month or next month. Scratch that, I'll write it after I finish writing my thesis. Actually, my thesis is the reason for my late post. Yeah, I'm posting this at 3am because I've spent the last couple of hours writing my thesis instead - not the fault of my thesis, actually. I was feeling very sick so I took a nap for a couple of hours and woke up at 11.30pm. So I really only spent 2 hours or so on writing my thesis (and I did make good progress, so I'm still pleased with it). Juggling a thesis with my hobby is going to be difficult, but it's worth it. I think.
As always, for the Emperor!
