Hey guys, its me again... yeah, yeah I know, but you are stuck with me. So no photos today. Instead I'm sharing the Howling Griffon guide I created using Bolter and Chainsword's Space Marine Painter program (which if you haven't tried yet I suggest you do. You can find it here.) This is the paint scheme for my basic marines (Tactical, Assault, and Devastator). I will be doing a bit more in depth scheme on my Vets and Command models (more about that in another post).
Army construction and paint wise, I have most of what I need for GW's 1000pt Iron Painter contest being run during the month of August built and primed white. All I have left to build is 1 squad of tactical marines. I will be painting a Master of the Forge, 2 Tactical squads, a Scout squad, a Dreadnought, a Rhino, a Landspeeder Storm, and a Predator Destructor for the contest. For larger games I also have 5 Assault Terminators with Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields, 5 Sternguard, Pedro Kantor, an Ironclad Dreadnought, and a second Drop Pod built and primed as well.
Today kicks off the Lentrel Prime campaign at GW Sugarland. The Lentrel Prime campaign combines a 4 round Escalation League with some campaign elements. As noted on the Dead Tau Project (another great blog which I think you should check out here), players start with a non-named independent character to build the story of the campaign around plus a 1000pt army comprised of:
- 1 HQ Choices
- 6 Troop Choices
- 1 Elite Choice
- 1 Fast Attack Choice
- 1 Heavy Support Choice
I am using the Griffons for the campaign. My starting two Catalysts give me an extra Elite and an extra Heavy Support slot. Here is a copy of my list:
HQ Master of the Forge w/ Thunder Hammer
TR (10) Tactical Marines w/ Power Fist, Flamer, Missile Launcher
TR (5) Scouts w/ Power Fist
FA Landspeed Storm w/ Multimelta
EL (5) Assault Terminators w/ Thunder Hammer and Storm Shield
HS Dreadnought w/ Multimelta in Drop Pod
HS Ironclad Dreadnought w/Chainfist in Drop Pod
Let me know what you think of the list.
Next time expect some pics of my progress on the Howling Griffons and maybe a short tutorial on how to paint them. See you next time.
