I just did a few back of the napkin calculations, and I think that by painting one Helbrute (for the DS formation, with each having a multi-melta), Be'lakor (for his versatile casting and Knight-punching prowess) and a handful of 25mm based models, I could field a super fluffy and somewhat effective Iron Warriors force. That's certainly a reasonable amount of stuff to paint in the next month+, especially when compared to what I've already done this year!

Speaking of which, 2014 has been the year of the Imperials for me, so I think I'm going to return to my roots in 2015. Between Mechanicon (if I do it), our upcoming Apoc game, and next year's tourney circuit, I'd love to finally finish up my 11,000 pts of Chaos Marines. So much of it is tantalizingly close to completion; an evening of details followed by basing and lacquer would be all it takes to finish entire squads and vehicles at this point! Chaos will be ascendant once again!

So what's fluffier than a bunch of Iron Warriors defending their siege works while raining terminators, obliterators, helbrutes and demons on their opponents' heads? It might actually be kind of effective, too. Plus, as I said earlier, everything in that army is already playable with the exception of the two Warpsmiths, a helbrute, Be'lakor and maybe a couple of regular CSMs. Just need to find 2 pts to trim out...

You have void shield generator and promethium relay models ready to go? Guess I better step it up on expanding my network for January... Have fun shooting through 16 shield layers, heretics!!!

Yep, sure do. I used a smaller version of that list to win the last "standard" tournament at Redcap's.

Wow, I screwed up the points for those Oblits big time. Not only am I not over by 2 points, I actually found 70 more points to play with!

Fall is going to be crazy busy for me but I am planning on heading out to mechanicon for the friday BFG. Probabally not going to make it out to much else until the winter sets in.

I am probably not going to be attending Mechanicon now. Maybe just the Friday night Escalation thing (if it's still available AND Joe is going) but I don't think I can swing a whole weekend at this point...

There's also "some Apoc TBD" event sometime during the weekend!
