Adepticon and other projects

Adepticon is closing in fast and there is still much to do. We have 2 teams participating in the Warhammer 40k team tournament. I can't say what army we are bringing but I can say that we have a lot of work to do on it. Models still need to be assembled and painted. Our display boards are not even close to being done. The second group hasn't even started. I've been tasked with the job since I don't have to build an army and don't plan to start it until 2 weeks before hand. Let's put it this way, I will be running around like a chicken with its head cut off.

In addition to the team tournament I am participating in The Battle for Piscina IV is a narrative event. Here are the details for the event:
  • The Battle for Piscina IV is a narrative event and you must bring a Dark Angels, Imperial Guard or Ork force to participate. (NO IG SPOTS LEFT)
  • Each participant will bring an army that will consist of 750 points or less.
  • Each participant will receive a Battle Briefing in advance that will outline the historical forces used in each scenario, how many points can be used, as well as any special rules or stratagems that will be used.
  • Participants will be modifying their army list throughout the event to suit the needs of each scenario.
  • Participants will be teamed up at times with others to meet the needs of the narrative.
  • The Battle for Piscina IV consists of four rounds of play. During each round you will be assigned a table and may have 1 or more team mates and foes. Not every battle will necessarily be equal.

I have no interest in Orks so I chose Dark Angels. Here is my 750 points:

Belial - thunder hammer and storm shield = 130

5 Deathwing terminators - thunder hammer and storm shield x 5 = 215

5 Deathwing terminators - thunder hammer and storm shield x 5 = 215

Devastator squad - 4 plasma cannons, sergeant has bolter = 190

I have all of the models except 3 plasma cannons. Now I just need to assemble and paint them.

However, the Dark Angels will have to wait a few weeks. I am still trying to finish my Dark Eldar. There are 3 ravagers, 1 raider, 3 blasterborn, and 10 witches that need paint first. I keep saying I'm behind on updates for them so at this point I am going to wait till the whole army is finished and post an army pic. Until next time.....
