Then I realize a have a mess of Necrons. Not a huge amount. Totaled I have 32 warriors, 3 Destroyers, a heavy Destroyer, Destroyer Lord and a Nightbringer. Then I see the possibility. "I should go ahead and finish the army."
My ADHD doesn't help. The new shiny has arrived to take my attention away from my current project (putting together my 35+ point Khador army). The desire to have the new shiny begins to creep in. Part of this is to actually make an army from start to finish that is WYSIWYG and tournament ready.
This is where the dilemma begins as well. I want to start doing competitive play. Do I want to build several WarmaHorde armies to compete in those events or do I want to have a competitive army for 40k?
I can finish my Khador army and be comfortable with the fact I have one 35pt Khador army that just needs paint. My DE army needs about a $100 or so worth of parts (using Miniature Market prices) but I think this is more of a beer and pretzel army right now. I like it but not enough to run a tournament. My GK lists have been fun and competitive BUT to make a tournament army I need to spend a lot to get the pieces and have them kitted right. I can finish my Necron army for about the same or less.
First world problems...

Here is the list of "cheats":
The new models do look pretty cool but I do have a lot of models that need painting. Plus Warmachine is sooo much fun. Decisions. Decisions.

- Opponent moves guys forward and casts spells
- I move guys forward and casts spells
- He shoots and messes up a bunch of guys
- I charge a guy and ding his armor
- He charges and messes up some more guys
- My caster charges his caster and unloads hell while my Warjack fires and kills him
My opponent (Nate) kicked ass though and explained a lot about troop placement (which differs greatly from 40k).
While I think 40k is still my favorite, the idea of being able to play multiple games in an evening rocks. This is esspecially true since the 40k and Warmachine players from Beltway Gamers all play during the week.

Finished him a few nights ago. Not completely happy with him but I can see where I am getting better and where I see mistakes. I still need to add white to the scraps in the paint and then gloss finish him.
This was out of focus but I love how my crappy OSL effect looks when it’s out of focus.

Since I decided to start Warmachine/Hordes, I have been thoroughly impressed with the game. I decided to go with the Two-player box set. It comes with two armies, Protectorate of Menoth (religious zealots) and the Khador (Russians with big Warmachines and lots of troops). My original first choice for an army was the Cryx (undead type) but I decided I like the colors black and red. Khador would be my choice.

Started painting the red on the Destroyer. I still have a lot of work to do. I have to finish the red then go and clean up the places I was sloppy. Then do the rivets, wash it, then highlights and battle damage (to hide the imperfections).
