Knight taking shape

Hi! I've began to work on the armour of my Knight, and here are the results of first layer of green stuff:

The cultist I've painted earlier stands proudly on the base:

I'll have to finish this guy pretty fast and begin working on second one, the Crusader with some carapace weapons (with magnets).

Today I've played two games against Tyranids and Orks, and won both, without any big problems. The army based upon Bikers and Knight really kicks some ass!

Chaos army, and why GW sucks so badly?

I've been playing CSM since 2'nd edition, quite a long time. I love the fluff, I love the models, and I used to love to play them, untill the current dex... I've tried, many times, to build something out of it, but without the help from Daemons or Imperial Armour, that dex simply sucks. Even Tau, Orks and Dark Eldar are stronger than that :/

Therefore, I've built an army that allows me to use my CSM models, plus some extra I'll have to convert, but is also playable.

The army looks like this:

Space Marines CAD

+ Chapter Master (Artificer Armour, Power Fist, Bike, Shield Eternal)

+ Librarian (Lv.2, Force Axe)

+ 6 Bikers (2 Grav Guns, Sergeant has Melta Bombs)

+ 4 Bikers (2 Grav Guns, Sergeant has Melta Bombs)

+ Drop Pod

+ Stormtalon Gunship (TL Lascannon)

+ 3 Centurions (Grav-Cannons)

+ Thunderfire Cannon

Librarius Conclave

+ Librarian (Lv.2, Force Axe, Bike)

+ Librarian (Lv.2, Force Axe, Bike)

+ Librarian (Lv.2, Force Axe, Bike)

Oathsworn Detachment

+ Knight Errant (Twin Icarus Autocannon)

I'll have to convert Centurions, Stormtalon and Thunderfire Cannon, but most models I already am working on for my CSM force, like Bikers, Sorcerers aka. Librarians, etc.

Today I'm working on two models, so I've decided to show you some WiP pics:

My Knight Errant, I still have to finish the painting and sculpt the armour.

This guy (well, you can see his legs only) will be the Chapter Master for this rooster. I'll magnetize his right hand, so I'll be able to switch between shield and lighting claw.

Today in Gentelman's Club we played big battle (or small, when it comes to apo), 4x2500pts. All in all, me and Bartek managed to win (5:4), but it was very tough game. We faced various flyers, wolf-star, huge super-heavy tank and some drop-pods. Lots of fun to play this kind of game! Sadly, I forgot to take my camera, so only picture I have is taken with my phone:

Some new models done

Finally I had some time to paint few of my models, and as tomorrow we're having an Apocalypse Battle, I've decided to paint Be'Lakor. The thing is, it's never a good idea to start with such model after long break, so I took one of the Cultists that will be displayed on my Chaos Knight's base, and painted it to warm myself up.

Then, it came the time to paint the Daemon Prince himself. It took mi quite a few hours, but it's finally done:

As I've mentioned earlier, tomorrow we'll play a quite big battle. 4x2500pts, two armies of Space Wolves will face my Chaos and Bartek's Guard/Tau army.

I chose very simple list, built upon two detachments, Daemons CAD and Crimson Slaugher AD.

In Daemonic part, nothing new, four Heralds of Tzeentch, Kairos Fateweaver, 9 Screamers, 2x11 Horrors, and another unit of Screamers, six this time.

Only funny thing in this detachment is new Chaos Knight, which has some pretty interesting rules.

Second detachment, Crimson Slaughter, is led by Be'Lakor, then there are ten Cultists, Hell Blade and Vindicator with Maelstrom Rider upgrade, gaining him Outflank.

I'm still not sure what will be fielded by Bartek, I only know that he'll bring Baneblade tank. Therefore, I can only think about my army tactic for now. One of the very strong things in this list is that it's able to field a Knight, that has 2+ Invunerable Save, is invisible, has 4-6 attacks wile charging, and re-rolls number of stomps. Sounds very very nice! I'll try to let you know how it went tomorrow, but I might have not enough spare time. Till then!
