When someone ask..."Dave, what was you first Finecast mode?"....I will simply point to this man....the IG Lord Commissar! With the new release of GWs new resin line Finecast which is taking over for the old metal line, I was there that Saturday and after seeing the first wave I picked up this guy. The Lord Commissar is just a really nice model, and now that he is available at the GW stores he is even better. When he came out in metal he was mail order only, and that made me sad. I really like the look of the model and he seems like a fun HQ choice to use. Well here he is, and he will join the Valhallan 199th's command hub....Looking forward to painting this guy and bringing him to the front lines.
Because even a Lord Commissar deserves his own pimp waggon! Oh Yeah....the Fortress of not as Arrogant here we come!

The 707th Grenadiers was a unit I began working on a few years ago in a build a regiment event online. So the original idea of the unit came from the previous edition codex. Now with the new codex the unit is now a "Stormtrooper" unit. Being a Rynnsguard unit the background of the 707th is that they are an elite bodyguard unit that was dragooned into the Rynnsguard during the war with the Orks, they were trained to fight along side the Crimson Fist and were armed buy their lord with the best weapons the imperium could offer, hot shot lasguns, grenade launchers, carapace armor, and a chimera transport. Being veteran guardsmen helped too, and training with the new Crimson Fist added to that. Making this unit a deadly addition to the new Rynnsguard Heavy Guard Regiment.

Finally finished the first squad of terminators for Sterns Strikers. This is a 5 man squad of Grey Knight Terminators, with halberds and a psycannon. All of them are the older metal models. Lots of fun working on these guys, and I'm glad to have a comparison unit of terminators to go with the grey knights I have finished already. Onto the next terminator squad!

Another unit for my Strike Force Stern is finished! The Vindicare is a nasty sniper that makes taking out armor easy. I like the model a lot and the game effects are just so much fun. I plan on adding a few more of these guys to my final force in the Assasins Apocalypse Formation. Of course this is only the first of may assassins I still have to build and paint.

This is my second Dreadnought in the army as a whole. This one will hopefully be a double twin linked Autocannon....aka Rifleman variant when I am done with him. This one was built by a friend who I bought it from using a ForgeWorld Torso, with some Witchunters Penitent Engine bits for the back part and the legs. Still a bit to go with this one, as well as finish the arms.

My next update is about the Vindicare assassin. This guy is nasty and easy to paint. The model is really nice, and I was able to finish painting him in one day. Since I wasn't planning on him being part of the army at first I didn't have a resin base ready for him. So he will be out in the mud flats with the rest of my stormtroopers. Oh well, I still have 2 other Vindicare I might get resin bases for in the future.

Here is my first update of my Grey Knights, my first Terminator squad. This squad will feature a Psycannon on one of the terminators. Most of the heavy work is done on these guys, just a matter of getting the halberds finished and cleaning up some detail work on the. After they are done it will be time to paint up the Resin bases I got for these guys and I will have my first Termi squad ready to go.
