Necron Flyer Unboxing!

Nick speaking,

What can I say, It's a Necron Flyer! I have been waiting for a flyer for one of my four armies for some time, and now I finally have one. Who cares about the rules, or if it's worth the points! It's a FLYER! I plan to magnetise it up into both a Doom Scythe and a Night Scythe as usual, but until then, here is a video of me unboxing it...

Necron Super Scarab List!

Nick speaking,

Previously, I looked at a dual Doomsday Ark list with my two recently painted interchangeable Arks. In this post, I want to look at using those two models as Ghost Arks instead, which I am sure is what they will end up being most of the time anyway. I have recently got myself another OOP Tomb Spyder, giving me six in total, so maybe it's time for me to start working on my first Scarab Farm list with my sixty three Scarab bases...


So, with thirty Scarabs filling out the Fast Attack slot and the accompanying six Tomb Spyders, what else to take? HQ wise, it has to be the Stormlord to keep those Scarabs as safe as can be with his night fight ability, and the mandatory Crono Cryptek, to keep the night fight going for long as possible. As this list is basically based around the Scarabs, then why not focus on that, and take it one step further and make them Super Scarabs? Enter Namesor for his furious charge buff! A lot of points yes, but I think it could work, as long as I have enough points to get some troops in! Two Ghost Arks with five Warriors in each will leave me enough points for a unit of nine Immortals, for the Stormlord and Crono Cryptek to join, which hopefully will just about be enough...

Super Scarab List (v1)

HQ
1 x Stormlord (225)
1 x Nemesor (185)
Royal Court:
1 x Cryptek/Chronometron (40)

One more Spyder

Nick speaking,

I managed to get my sixth and final OOP Tomb Spyder from eBay the other day. I always have one Gloom Prism in each of my Spyder units, for the usual wound allocation and for a bit of psychic defence, so this puts me in a nice position to introduce some of the new models into my army. I plan on getting myself three new Gloom Prism Spyders, and putting one of each in the three sets of two old models I already have. I will then have a chance to use some of the nice new minis, but keep some sort of uniform look to the army.

Sadly the model I got from eBay wasn't very well packaged and the gun broke off, so I was left with some pinning for it. I also decided to go for a different pose and have it in a sitting position for a bit of variety. To get the head looking forward I ended up having to do a bit of green stuff work, which I think came out pretty well. To make the model have some surface areas to glue it onto the base, I put some green stuff on the base and made some indentations so that I had something to glue it to when it was dry...

Here is a before picture and a few after shots that I took for your viewing pleasure...

Necron Doomsday List!

Nick speaking,

Now I have my magnetised Doomsday Arks all painted up, it's time to put a list together for them. I know the Doom Ark has always had a bad response in the new Codex, and with the Annihilation Barge being so good for the points, it's easy to see why. Still, I have them, so I am going to use them!

So, where to start? Well, as the Doom Ark already has a bit of a bad reputation as such, I was thinking of taking this list one step further. I am going to take a Monolith as my third Heavy Support choice, to go with my two Doomsday Arks! No need to go into the for and against of the Monolith, but lets face it, it's not a must have unit. I have only used the Monolith once before, I deep striked it in for a 12" scatter and a mishap, so I am keen to give it another try! So now I am trying units I haven't used much or at all, maybe It's about time I got my Destroyer Wraithlord on the table! Six Wraiths and a Destroyer Lord with Warscythe, Weave and Mindshakle should do the trick...

   
As the Destroyer Lord doesn't unlock the Royal Court, next stop is going to be an Overlord with a Barge and three Lance Crypteks with a single Solar Pulse. Now to pad out the Troops with Immortals and Warriors and we are all done...

Necron Doomsday List (v1)

HQ 
1 x Destroyer Lord/Warscythe/Weave/Mindshakle (160)
1 x Overlord/Warscythe/Mindshakle (115)
1 x Command Barge (80) 
Royal Court:
1 x Cryptek/Eldridge Lance/ Solar Pulse (55)
2 x Cryptek/Eldridge Lance (70)

TROOPS
10 x Immortals/Tesla (170) 
10 x Immortals/Tesla (170)
5 x Warriors (65)
5 x Warriors (65)

FAST ATTACK
6 x Wraiths/4x Whip coils (250)

HEAVY SUPPORT
1 x Doomsday Ark (175)
1 x Doomsday Ark (175)
1 x Monolith (200)

Points 1750

I had fifteen points left over, so I stuck Mindshakle on the Overlord, just in case he has to bail out of his Barge. This list isn't for anything serious, but I think it could be fun! So what do you think? Any comments or suggestions welcome as usual.

Necron Ghost/Doomsday Arks Painted (part 2)

Nick speaking,

OK, part two, and here are the pictures of the Doomsday versions of my magnetised Arks. The main difference is obviously the big Doomsday Cannon, so I will start the pictures with a nice close up of one of them. I now need to come up with an army list for these bad boys, so watch this space...

Necron Ghost/Doomsday Arks Painted (part 1)

Nick speaking,

Here are some pictures of my finished Necron Ghost Arks. They are magnetised so that I can interchange them as Doomsday Arks as well. Once again, I tried to match them in with the rest of my Necron army, so I hope you like them. You can see the Doomsday Ark pictures in the next post, but until then, here are the Ghost Ark versions...

Lucky Lukas the Trickster!

Nick speaking,

I have recently been lucky enough to win a competition that was run by PaintingXoan over on his YouTube channel. His winning prize was for me to send him a mini of my choice, and he would paint it up for me however I wanted it. I chose to send him my 13th Company Lukas the Trickster conversion, which I have previously posted about here. I spruced up his base a bit as I hadn't done anything to it yet, and sent it off to him with my painting requirements, including a dead Blood Angels helmet!

Thank you so much Xoan for running the competition and for choosing my video as the winner. I hope you have a lot of fun painting Lukas up, and I am really excited about receiving him back when he is done, which of course, I will post pictures up for all of you to see. If you have a YouTube account, please go and check out his Channel and subscribe if you like what you see...

Tyranids Vs Grey knights 1750pts Battle Report

Nick speaking,

Time to get my newly painted Trygon and Doom of Malan'tai on the table against Grey Knights. This Annihilation game was very exciting to play in, I ended up being so many kill points down, the only way I was going to win was by tabling the Knights, but could I do it? If you want to find out more about Grey Knights and in particular, the Paladin build, then go and check out the posts over on Embolden 40k, and don't forget to press the follow button...

Guess the minis?

Nick speaking,

I have been very fortunate, and discovered that one of my snooker team mates used to be into 40k. He no longer plays or has an interest in it, and has very kindly sent a few minis my way. Most of the minis are from the old Eldar range, including a Falcon, Avatar and a few old Howling Banshees. In the bag of bitz were three models of which I am not sure what they are. Does anyone else know what they are please? They were all painted when he was quite young, so I am sure he won't mind me saying, please excuse the paint job

 Mini One...(?)



Mini Two... (Eldar Guardian, maybe?)



Mini Three...(Eldar Ranger, maybe?)
