Still here. It has been a busy month, with tons of rumors flying around, holidays coming and going, a changing in the budget means a change in jobs, etc.
I'll have some progress shots up soon hopefully. I've been painting and building when I can.
Looks like Lord of War slot and new fortifications might be coming to 40k. I'm interested in seeing how that all pans out.

The first pictures of new tyranids are out. First up is the new hive guard pack. New weapon options that look even more like a harpoon/grapple. Supposedly not a dual kit.
The other new rumor is that warriors are getting the broadside treatment and getting bigger and placed on 60mm bases.
This one I hope is not true. I like the current sculpt, I have 30+ of them. Also, warriors are the core chassis of most nids, raveners and lictors will look out of place. They are supposed to be the terminator equivelant, so they should stay 40mm.

Been bored at work, and was thinking about how Sisters fit into 40k. I started comparing the different armies to classic/fantasy archetypes. Maybe my Roll playing memories were just coming back to my thoughts.

So some of you might remember I have a deathwing force I started sometime back. It was originall planned to be a Mantis Warrior first company force using deathwing rules. The 6th edition happened and terminators were supposed to be better. And then the DA book was on the way so they waited. Deathwing sucks now, so they sit primed on a shelf. I had even bought chapter house shoulderpads for them.

I'm going to be heading up to the Indiana Championship tournament in lafayette soon. I've been busy this week painting my army as I haven't had much time beforehand. Its not up to the level I was hoping for, but it is a good start and I'm really enjoying how it is coming along.
I'm interested in seeing how my army performs in this more cut throat environment. I've only played them once in a small local event and a few times in pick up games.
They deffinitly are not to the comfort level I have with my tyranids, but I think have a lot of potential I can get out of them. As long as I don't make too many mistakes.
This should be a tough yet fun end to the tournament season. After this I will bunker down for the winter and work on the hobby side a lot more. I have two other armies on the back burner and some terrain as well. Plus tyranids will be back in Januarary, so I have to manage my hobby time.
