Necron Destroyers

I completed a squadron of 6 Necron Destroyers, which gives me a decent 75PL force. One of the Destroyers was the heavy upgrade pack, but the gun was such a piece of unusable Finecast crap that I chopped it off and put the barrel of a regular Gauss cannon on it. Arghhh... anyhow I think the models came out nice otherwise:

And here is the battlehost in full array - 1 Fast Attack detachment (Wraiths, Destroyers, Scarabs with a Cryptek) and 1 Battalion (Immortals with Gauss & Tesla, Warriors, Annihilation Barge, Lychguard, Overlord and Lord).

S'more Necrons!

Finished these a few days ago but have been a bit lazy about updating my blog. Here are some wraiths, warriors and more immortals. The wraiths are very cool models.

Then over the holiday weekend I did some more Necrons - an Annihilation Barge, Overlord and Lord:

And on top of that - more FOW early war Germans to reinforce my Panzer Company. Granatewerfers, Panzerbusche, Panzer IIs and IIIs. The Pz IIIs are from my chum Tim from Saskatoon who sent a crapload of FOW stuff my way in exchange for a handful of microarmor. Thanks Tim!!! (PS - all the Brits went to Dennis - we will be starting some late desert war stuff to get it one the table).

Starting Necrons

Have been out of town for most of July, but in between holiday and work trips managed to finish a few key reinforcements for my Cadians - here are some converted multimelta specialists and additional guardsmen. I need the melta special weapons team now that my chum Vic is fielding a Knight and Armigers. Something to cut through all that big 3+ save stuff.

I also made a start on my next 40k project - Necrons! Here is the Cryptek and some Immortals from the Forgebane box. I decided on a turquoise & gold colour scheme.

Last of the Flames of War Afrika Korps lot - and a few Yanks

Here are the remaining Pz III and IVs - plastic models by Battlefront:

 And I also picked up some very cheap PSC Shermans at a FLGS ($11 for 5?!) which I painted as well. The plastic PSC is in front - the one with the cast hull (the others with cast hulls are metals that I got from a mate - not sure of manufacturer, but they are quite crisp). So.... after picking up these guys I guess I will do a US army to fight the Jerries at Kasserine a few times... so maybe will buy some more Yanks to fill out a US army (more to come on this...)

More FOW Germans

First is a batch of 15mm resin vehicles obtained from ebay - these were cheap but on the crude side. The blue I used for windscreen glass makes the Protzes look a bit Pixar!

I also did another AK platoon and a unit of Panzer IVs. These were all done using the Colors of War paints from Battlefront

Flames of War Afrika Korps

My chum Dennis found a local guy who was selling off a big lot of the newer FOW plastics - tanks, Stukas, guns, a company of infantry, all the books and markers, paint - like new mostly in the box - about $300US worth of stuff, for $50. Wow - I couldn't resist - so now starts a new project for late desert war in 15mm. Aieee... the stuff is really nice, but now I guess I need another army to fight them against?

The first stuff to come off the bench is here:

10mm Italians for western desert

Finished off the Western Desert project in 10mm (by Pendraken) with the Italians - two platoons of infantry, AT guns and some clanky tanks.

And a few odds and ends of Brits to round out a Jock column and command.
