Grey Knights: Librarians and Terminators

These are the final parts I need to get my small initial Nemesis Strike Force up and running.  These were the last bits needed for my 1650pts tournament list.  As a group they come together really well, looking great on the board.  I will however admit I am not fully happy with the second Librarian.  That finecast model is pretty tired and doesn't stand up too well against the newly converted Blood Angel Librarian model.  The converted BA model has worked well and will make a good Warlord Model.



The other great thing about these models is the point to effort ratio! There is (if fully kitted out) 500pts of Terminators here, needing only 7 models to get up to such a high total.  Seven psychic dice is not bad either. Coupled with Tigurius and the 2 DreadKnights that bumps the Army up to 12 dice base.


The Librarian hands and weapons compliment each other nicely.  The hand transition is done using VMA Fire Red, GW Troll Slayer Orange, VMA Medium Yellow finished with a tiny edge of VMA White.  I like painting red but cant start Blood Angels as that is my best mates Army.  Working red into the Grey Knights is giving me the opportunity to get some reds down.  The weapons have all been done using Kenny's Next Level painting technique on swords; a transition from VMA Black, P3 Meredius Blue, P3 Arcane Blue, P3 Arcane Blue + VMA White and finally VMA White.




The armour used the same process I put down on the Dreadknights; VMA Gungrey base, Tamiya Clear Smoke for shades (fired from aribrush pointing up under their legs), OSL top down using VMA Steel, shaded in places with Tamiya Clear Blue, finally neatening up the mid transitions with VMA Gun Grey.



It wouldn't be an HTB project without magnets.  Some 2mm dia x 2mm round magnets were put in the wrist of 2 of the Terminators, the old Librarian and in the top of the BA converted Librarians staff.  They can all select hammers or swords as a result.  The Psycannon is glued on there - I cannot see an opponent getting upset if I don't use it in a game and choose not to pay the points for it.



Another project all finished up.  They should add some steel, tough armour saves and a lot of impact in the Psychic Phase of any game, making a great ally to any army of the Imperium.  HTB.

Space Marine Repulsor Tank Points Analysis

So hopefully you have seen my previous thoughts on the Redemptor.  A great model. I think the Repulsor however is likely to have a much bigger impact as some of its capabilities are just down right naughty.

The Repulsor has 10 weapons systems...10! I can't even see where the Storm Bolter's are meant to be on it but they are there somewhere! (I think they go above the doors but lets see when the kit comes out!)

Initial Thoughts 

Very good. Fly and Power of the Machine Spirit are very powerful rules - this has both. You can move and keep that 3+ to hit with Heavy weapons (but you still need to be careful of degradation ...BS still goes down). And if you get assault you can move back and fire without penalty because of Fly. Bonkers for an Ultramarine's gun line or creeping-advance style army.

T8 means str 4 is wounding on 6's not 5's as is in the case with the Redemptor Dreadnought. No 2+....Land Raider needs to have something going for it, however when we see the poi…

Grey Knights: Nemesis Dreadknights

I have painted something not blue for the first time in years!  These have come out very well and I had some real success using the Tamiya Clear plaints to get some great metallic finishes on some of the surfaces.  The Blue Sword effect Kenny uses on Next Level Painting worked a treat. I hadn't used P3 paints until he recommended them; they went into the airbrush no problem, giving some great results.


Space Marine Redemptor Dreadnought Points Analysis

I have promised Rob (Spikey Bits) at least twice now I would return to blogging but have failed miserably until now! I am on holiday and getting my ideas together to partake in my own White Dwarf "Tale of Four (one!) Gamers" style hobby challenge to get a Primaris force table top ASAP. There seems to be a gap in the market (soon to be filled by the hobby blogs and Podcasts, not least the Long War and Forge the Narrative) so having done my own research to shape my army list, I thought I would share build ideas and the points rationale behind it. Here goes...

Initial thoughts

It is good - not broken, not excellent but good. Toughness 7 is a slight issue given everyone trying to focus on being able to deal with this value. Maybe 8 would have been nice. A 2+ would be too much, but T8...hmm.... we will see. I think it is good anyway.  One concern (demonstrated in the Table Top Tactics video) is the degrading effect and impact on shooting once it goes to half health.  He needs a C…
