Firmly Crooked Plans

Plans for this lot.
The Redemptor, Hellblaster and, if there's enough Intercessors to make a squad I'd possibly bulk the numbers up, to be for the Star Leopards chapter.
The Scouts will be grey and not have markings so I could swop them around between The Lion's Blades, The Emperor’s Loyal Hounds Of War and the Ordo Astartes strike force.
The bikes, attack bike and Land Speeder will be painted for The Lion's Blades, need to check how many I have as I might try to get enough copies to get a full squadron of 5, would also try to get enough bikes to get a full squad.
The tank I'm currently undecided on it.
The Inceptors and Aggressors will be painted for The Emperor’s Loyal Hounds Of War.
The Librarian, medic, and maybe the Cataphractii will be going in the Lion's Blades any others will be painted in any colours I like best or maybe sold on.

Photo Booth Fun

Out of the 10, I found the Warlord to be the least pleasant to paint. They are all nice kits don't get me wrong but just the amount of faffing around with the Warlord was a drag, and painting the first one in the Deepkin Flesh was not a good idea.
The Reaver has to be my favourite kit of the 3 Titans.

Conquest Lieutenant

Light weight night.
Conquest Lieutenant just waiting for glue to set on the base, will get the arms on at home. For now this is going in the Chaos army alongside the Dæmon Prince Marneus Calgar as Captain what's his name, not Ventris the other one. Well he'll be leading a Herald formation only instead of Stern Guard Squads it'll be 4 squads from the 4 Chaos Gods.

And a couple of hotwheels cars in a return to my gw roots with an ode to Dark Future. The Texas Highway Patrol was my first linked army, kind of inspired by, a now vaguely, remembered tv show called The Highway Man that had a couple of agents driving trucks and tracking criminals down, one of the truck was also a helicopter for some reason that did really make sense even then.

Warhound Night 3

Finished off the Warhounds
Minus Improbe
Little Rascal

Qune Non Mole
Size Isn’t Everything

Puer Quaestio
Problem Child

Ferruginous Lucellum
Steely Glint.

Just got the weapons left to do from the second box before this is finished, but as I got the full maniple done in 4 nights I've decided to call it a night early and pack my stuff up.
Will get some pics in the light box of everything when I get a day off.

Warhound Night 2

Took it easy and just focused on getting one Warhound painted up, now the head is for Minus Improbe from yesterday, got Puer Quaestio up to this point tonight, leaving Steely Glint for tomorrow, as I can bring it's head, the dodgy one I built yesterday, in with me on Monday night and get it finished, alongside the body and weapons tomorrow.
I decided to magnetise the waist on these and will go back and get the other 2 Warhounds done as well as looking at the Reavors to see if they can be magnetised as well.

Warhound Night 1

Okay I messed up a head, but I can fudge that by keeping everything grey on one tomorrow.
Again I have to say this is a lovely kit to put together , as nice as the Reavor Titan is.
Warhound Minus Improbe
(little rascal)
Warhound Qune Non Mole
(Size Isn’t Everything)

So five nights in work and the plan is to get 5 Titans done.
I started with the Reavor Titan , I did get everything done on this one, which is the lead Titan in the Ventnor manipul, apart from fitting the leg and shoulder plates which I'll get done tonight before moving on to the first Warhound box.

Warhound Bases

With a day off I decided to get the 4 Warhound Bases done. Part Martian dust and astroganite, with an agrax earthshade wash,  then a wild rider red dry brush on the red side and a dawnstone dry brush on the astroganite.

Myrimdon Manipul Alpha

Myrimdon manipul Alpha, X Co-hort of the Legio Palidus Mor. Warlords Eques Palidus, Coercive Umbra and Apocalypsis Irregulares with Reavor Titans (temporary names) Rem Uno and Rem Dos.
With a focus on Apocalypsis Irregulares as I've just finished it this morning.
So glad I've finished the Warlord class.

Apocalypsis Irregulares

Well my internal plastic crack addict wouldn't let me sleep yesterday, which lead to a problem but we'll get there later, which ment I was able to go and pick up my box that I'd missed on Saturday  that had Warlord number 3 and the 2 boxes of Warhounds. I got some black spray on the sprues before getting a few hours sleep.
Once I got started putting the paint on the panels I realised my focus was going so I skipped some of the finer details in favour of powering on with the build, once I've had some sleep I'll get it finished.
