At this point I should rename this thread "RedsandRoyals accidentally cuts all his fingertips off while building minis".
Despite my various wounds (now patched with super glue in the approved hobbyist manner), in the past 48 hours I have assembled...
- Two drop pods with varying degrees of difficulty
- 15 blood angel terminators
- 5 Sisters of Silence
- Another techmarine (I think I may have some sort of compulsion to keep making them)
- A chaplain
- A White Scars deathwatch biker
- Five Long Fangs
- A Wolf Priest with a two-handed Crozius (who I made the wolfiest mother*cker possible without him actually being and/or riding a wolf).
I still have two rhinos and a land raider to assemble, and the bulk of the space wolves (another Longfang box and two Getting Started boxes) haven't actually arrived yet. I'll try to get some pics this weekend, assuming I have any fingers left to take them with.
I hear ya, though in reverse. My "blood angels" (lamenters) and death watch are on hold while I do some guard and space wolves...and sigmar, and blood bowl, and 30k. What am I doing with my life?
Painting, painting, always painting!
Also, question for the general populace;
I'll need to pick up one more Rhino ("I just need one more transport" being the unofficial motto of most Marine players I think), as well as a transport for my Blood Claws. Said transport needs to carry 11 models or more, and ideally would be an assault vehicle, which leaves with one of the Wolf flyers or a Land Raider Crusader/Redeemer. The Land Raider is, weirdly, cheaper in terms of $, and offers a second big scary target to draw fire off the long fangs and rhinos (The Thunderwolves from the Start Collecting box being the first). Also? Probably easier to paint. The flyer is more expensive, but obviously offers more speed and flexibility, and would add yet another flyer to my rapidly growing air force (five transports and four attack aircraft at last count).
My vote is landraider. People typically get pretty nervous about them and throw way too much fire power their way so if you're looking for a distraction that still has a good chance of hitting enemy lines, you can't go wrong.

Then land raider it shall be. My BA army is pretty much all about "SUDDENLY FABULOUS SPACE VAMPIRES" thanks to the deep strikes and drop pods, and the Deathwatch are already pure air cav, so having the Wolves draw fire on the ground would probably work best anyway.

Lots of posting in here but no new pictures. I'll rectify that. Lighting isn't the best, so sorry for that.
Wolf Priest up first. The helmet still seems more like "Angry Rat" than wolf to me, but whatever. It seemed like the most appropriate one to use. He has four different wolf pelts (and two wolf tails) on him.
And here's my non-jump chaplain for my regular marines. I obviously need to clean the power fist up a bit.

Last shipment of space wolves (the bulk of the infantry) arrived. 10 hunters and 1.5 thunderwolves complted before I cut my thumb so badly I had to stop for a bit. By the time I had managed to get a dressing on it my sink looked like I had tried to cut someone's head off over it.
There may be no "I" in "Team", but there is a "Team" in "Meat Shield".
