Grailsword Part 6 & Update

Well i have decided to focus on the Grailsword crusade rather than Contqual mainly because little has been said on this compared to Contqual so i can let it progress how i want rather than being constrained by the set ideas, this will also help with any stories and pieces i write for the project. Therefore i will be expanding the ideas from just the Iron Hands into the Eldar, Red Talons and Brazen Claws in the near future.

I have also (just about) decided on a new fantasy army in Nurgle Beasts of Chaos, i will probably start this in anticipation of the new Army Book expected in Q1 2010 starting with some Pestigor as i really like the models. The only things that would change this would be if Tomb Kings were definately a release for next year or if the new Skaven Army Book gives options for themed and Clan focused armies.

Back to the blog

Well after a brief hiatus to move home i finally have decent access to the internet and to my Fantasy/40k. This post is really just a planning post to focus my goals on what i want to achieve over the coming months. Now in no particular order.

1. Work more on the Grailsword/Contqual project
2. Finish painting my Iron Hands
3. Convert a more Bionic 'Lysander'
4. Finally decide on a new Fantasy army
5. Start planning my Ad Mech additions properly (I already have a magos i use as a counts-as Inquisitor, but i want to create another one as well as a tech-priest assassin based from the Horus Heresy: Collected Visions)

WIP Counts-As Lysander

Here is a quick WIP of my counts-as Lysander. He has bionic legs built from plasticard rods. The Terminator body came from the free Terminator from WD, the shoulder pads are the Dark Angel Dreadnought Shin Pads, the cape from the CSM Terminator Lord boxset, the arms are from the CC Terminarot boxset. He's not too bad, but he will suffice until i can convert a better model for 'Lysander', i am planning one with 4 bionic limbs, and the rest of his body will be largely scratch built.
