1000pt Tau vs. Blood Angels

I played a short game against JJ’s Blood Angels tonight.  Sadly I didn’t get any pictures.

Blood Angels:
5 Death Company with Jetpacks
7 Assault Marines
Sanguinary Priest
Death Company Dreadnaught

10 Kroot
6 Fire Warriors
Devilfish with Disruption Pods
Commander Shas’el with Missile Pod, Plasma Rifle and Multi-tracker
2 squads of 3 Crisis Suits with Missile Pod, Plasma Rifle and Multi-tracker
Broadside with Targeting Array
Hammerhead with Dispuption Pods, SMS and Multi-tracker
Piranha with Targeting Array and Fusion Gun

We played Sieze Ground with 5 objectives and Pitched Battle.  JJ won the roll and passed me the first turn.  I placed my Kroot in some trees in the middle of my side with my suits and Piranha behind them.  The Hammerhead was on a hill to my right, while the Broadside was on the left.  My Devilfish with the Fire Warriors were in reserve.  JJ deployed the Stormraven behind a hill with the Dreadnaught and Death Company inside.  The Assault Squad and Priest were in reserve.

First turn I managed to immobilize the Stormraven, but that was it.  JJ moved the Death Company and Dread up towards my center.

On the second turn, I was able to wreck the Dreadnaught with the Piranha and kill off two of the Death Company.  They got close enough and took out my Kroot in assault.  The Stormraven killed the Piranha.

Turn three saw my Devilfish come onto the table in my right corner.  I fired more at the Death Company whittling them down to just 2 plus the Sanguinor, but that didn’t matter.

For the rest of the game, I couldn’t keep away from him and he managed to take out the Crisis Suits and my Devilfish before my Fire Warriors finally killed him.  My Broadside shot terribly, either missing completely, or hitting and then failing to wound him.  The game ended with JJ’s Assault Squad holding one objective, while my Fire Warriors were stranded too far away from their objective.

Completed Blood Angel

I finished up the Space Hulk Blood Angel for the competition this morning.  I know I was planning on painting 3 and going with the best, but that was just a bit too ambitious and time was not on my side there.

In the end, I really like the way this guy turned out.  There are still a few things that could probably be tweaked and worked on, but I’m quite happy overall.

As far as the pictures go, I’ve put together a light box to work with now.  It really helped with capturing the details, but the pictures still turn out a bit too yellow, so I need to get some brighter, whiter lights to work with so I don’t need to do any brightening in Photoshop.  I also need a tripod.  I’ve gotten away with just setting the camera on something for now, but a tripod would be a huge help.

Anyways, here are the pictures:





WIP: Blood Angel

A little more work on the terminator.


WIP: Blood Angel Terminator

I managed to get some work done on one of the Blood Angels Terminators tonight.  I’m planning on finishing this one completely before I start working on another one.


WIP: Blood Angel Terminators

I’ve started working on three of the Blood Angel Terminators from the Space Hulk set.  One of these will be entered into a painting contest put on by Jawaballs.  I haven’t decided which one, but I’ve primed three of my favorite models from the set and I’ll see how it goes.
