Well, I had a nice 3-day weekend, and since most of my gaming plans fell through (although I did get in one Chain of Command game!) I got A LOT of painting done on some random back burner projects. In addition to the Daemonettes from the last post, I also knocked out 20 Noise Marines, 3 Terminators, and 10 Seekers.
But first, an awesome looking army shot.
I really rushed through the Noise Marines. Which is a good thing, because I didn't want to spent too much time on space marines. I tell myself that's because I'd like to upgrade these with the new awesome Forgeworld figs that just came out, but really I know I'll only use these figs like once a year so may as well do them quickly.
Each squad has a commander with a power fist, a blast master, five sonic blasters, and three regular marines (aka extra wounds). Is that optimal in the new edition? Who knows, but it's what I had lying around.
I think I now have a decent and legal army for Chaos for 40k for some random games. I think that's about all I have to paint from my army from years ago. I would like to get one of those new flyers at some point, and I have a Chaos Baneblade I may as well paint up to match these cats, not to mention my Eldar titans.
But, hopefully that's all the 40k I'll be painting for a while. With a little luck, my 20 Khurasan T55s will arrive this week and I can break into the AIW!
