The Henchmen Build Continues

Thanks to Real Genius for the photo.

I have to admit, I have been bitten by the "New Codex" bug. Lately, all of my hobby efforts have been going into the Grey Knightless army. I have just had a ton of fun with these models. I'm working on a second DK, stormbolter equipped "Praetorians"(Cadians w/ Secret Weapon heads sculpted by the one and only Col. Gravis.) Also, I have went the "counts-as" route for Death Cult Assassins, I'm using slightly modified Wyches and I am converting Arco Flagellants using Ghouls. Saturday, I got a little distracted from the Henchmen when I started what I hope will be a cool conversion for my Tech Marine.

  On the tournament front, I have a team event to play in the first weekend of the month and the Alamo GT is next month as well....and possibly another tourney as well. So, May looks like a busy month. Y'all take care!

WIP Praetorian (Dread) Knight For my Grey Knight(less) Army

I went with a super shooty build on this Praetorian Knight. The next one will have the Incinerator.
   Well, I just about finished with my Praetorian (Dread) Knight. I still need to do some work on the black, apply another wash and highlight and I will be done with the first one. I plan on doing atleast one more.
Still a WIP but getting close.
I can't wait to get my Grey Knight(less) army on the table top.
    I'm really excited about the new GK codex. This is my first "new" army in 5 years and I am enjoying the prospect of a new army to play with. When I looked at the preview codex, I started thinking about an all henchman build but, I wanted to use the DK model. The it hit me....use a sentinel with a Praetorian driver! This really is a ton of FUN! Thanks to Frank for taking the pics!

Grey Knight Termies and Other Hobby Tidbits

Hey everyone, just a quick hobby update. Lately, I have been working on conversions for my Grey Knight(less) army. I also painted the termies pictured here. They were out of the Black Box and were done for display. I didn't do any basing because they were to be given away after the Codex was released. I liked the kits a lot. However, I am proceeding with my planned Henchman build. The Praetorian Knight is about 70% finished. I hope to finish it tomorrow and get some pics taken Thursday night.

I played in a local 1500pt RTT this weekend. It was a brutal day for my dice. I had 3 great games, 2 I had the worst dice on the planet and 1 game got ALL the dice love. But all 3 games were a blast. Pictured below is the army that I played Saturday.

2 Wolf Lords on TWMs
15 Fenrisian Wolves
3 TWC, TH/SS, SS, nada
8x GHs with plasma, banner, MoTW,  power weapon in a rhino
7x GHs with melta, banner, MoTW, in a rhino
5x GHs with melta
6x Long Fangs with 5 missle launchers

I've got to get some sleep
