For Cadia, For the Emperor! Part 1

A slight deviation from my VC progress. All this while I've been talking about my Cadian 7th and their exploits but never really showcase any of the models except a few pictures from various blog posts. My army list was based on the Mechanised Battalion regime, meaning usage of Veteran troops in Chimeras supported by Leman Russ tanks and Vendetta air support. For this part I will show the vehicles portion of the Cadian 7th. Well to all of you IG nutters, here goes.

Cadian 7th Mechanised Batallion

Well that's it folks. The next posting will feature the Cadian 7th command and it's troops. Laters..

Cometh the Undead - Progress of House Corvinus

The House Corvinus will be the fluff for my Vampire Counts. Rather than stick to the von Carstein family tree I decided to branch out a bit, and it's actually based on the legends of Vlad III the Impaler. Progress for my VC army have been very slow due to work and pursuing my MBA at the same time. In addition to that, it is Ramadan now and I'm not really focused on hobbying too much in this holy month. I've set a timeline until 30th September to have a fully painted VC army but I doubt whether I can finish by the dateline. Nevertheless I did set a moderate timing for my hobbying and completed a small portion of my VC forces.

All painted models got the Minwax treatment, and some in need of matt finish to get rid of the gloss. Again all were painted base color and no shading, wash or highlight except for the Dire Wolves. The skin portion were painted Bronze Flesh and with a slightly heavy wash of Dark Flesh before dipping, to have that decayed skin effect.

As above, I'm good for 2000 points at the moment (Corpse Cart proxied as Black Coach). Yet I still need 10 Grave Guards, a Black Coach and Vargulf to have a nice 2250 point list. There will be a huge Fantasy game at Slice and Dice on 29th August to commomerate S&D first year anniversary. It will be a battle between 2 Generals which I have to pledge my forces to either one's banner. It's more of a Apoc Fantasy version and I'm sure it's going to be huge and awesome! Win from S&D actually built a castle from scratch for the battle and it looked amazing even at construction phase. A baptism of fire for House Corvinus should that day be the first day of shedding (and drinking) blood in the Warhammer realm. From Sylvania with love, laters..
