5:th edition Imperial Guard Codex

Well, I finaly got to take a look on the new IG Codex. And after some quick reading my opinion is that it's a solid book for a solid army. The IG has been upgraded from being the army with a lot of minis to being a army that can dish out some real nasty stuff. The only thing that is sad to see is that Last Chancers have been substituted with Penal Legion squads. Downgraded and without the leadership of Colonel Schaeffer. On the other hand there are a lot of new additions when it comes to characters, including Straken "Ironhand" and Sly "The one-man army" Marbo. But the most important thing is the additions of vehicles to the army. Now you don't have to turn to Imperial Armour books to add some heavy stuff to your army - like the Deathstrike Missile Launcher (something that I've previously only seen in Epic).
I could go on and on all day about this, but I got better things to do, like slapping some paint on my Hellblades and on my Lesser Daemons.

Inq. Henchman

A small addition but none the less. Right now he's in the "painting-in-progress-bin" on my desk

Imperial Guard Vet armed with a shotgun.
By some reason he goes under the name of "Zombie hunter", can't really remember why. Maybe I was watching some oldschool horror flick when I built him, I think it was around Halloween that I started.

Chaos Hellblade ...incomming!

Two weeks back I started scratchbuilding some airsupport for my Chaos army. Right now I'm working on two Hellblade fighters. The primary material on this one is some cardboard, a bottlecap (to hold the engine in place), some filler for all the gaps and greenstuff for the raised details (that aren't cardboard). When everything is finished the pilot and a dashboard will be fitted inside the cockpit. This build is a cross between a display-piece and some Heavy support for my Chaos army. The base will also reflect that - still need to get going on that one...

Here are some pics of the first of the two Hellblades, "The Red Baron":

Some disturbing rune-details on the (hmm) "wings":

Another Hellblade is on the way, this time in a more greenish colour and with some more gs-work on the hull. (Thinking about naming it The green Devil)
Still missing on this one: the "Baron" himself, the pilot. Well and not to forget the two twinlinked autocannons... And, well, the whole engine-package. It's a sub-assembly that's about ready for mounting, just need a coat of paint on it before I start on the details.

Update on the Dread drop pod.

One of my Dreads got some paint on his new "home"(!) Since I got two Dreads for my army I'm entertaining the idea of building another drop pod. But right now I'm deep in my Chaos Hellblade project.
