Second (and last one I will get) issue of Warhammer 40k: Imperium dropped :sweat_smile:

Gotta say, those new Necrons are pretty sweet!

Here is the complete group shot of models I got from the first two issues of the Conquest and Imperium magazines. Not too bad for 16€, including a total of three colours, two brushes and 12 dice (plus some printed playmats I don’t think I’ll ever use). System gamed! I am still sad that Mortal Realms will most likely never come out in Germany, wouldn’t have minded getting a few Stormcast and Nighthaunt and more colours for another 8€…

Very happy to report that I’ve painted the remaining Chaos Dwarf Warriors. This is the first unit of Chaos Dwarfs I’ve ever painted! It still sits only at the battle-ready stage, but I think the overall look of the unit is still OK.

Another close call at the end of a month, but with a tour de force I could finish my unit of 14 Blunderbusses to battle-ready standard.

Painted 5 Bull Centaurs with Standard Bearer to battle-ready standard. Added rapid lavabases, which are barely more work.

Painted an Earthshaker and two Death Rocket Launchers to battle-ready standard. Regretted counting war machines as one model :sweat_smile: But it’s only right. I cannot field a single Crew Dwarf, so it’s not a separate model in my mind.

Chaos Dwarf Big Hat Heroes painted battle-ready+

I followed the same recipe I used for the troops and war machines, but did spend just a little more time on a first layer of highlights, mainly on the skin, the red highlight colour and the Sorcerer’s cloak. They are still far from done, but just that tad closer to tabletop standard to maybe stand out a little from the basic troops.

Thanks! Only two models from the Big Hats to go before CDOffline, albeit big ones.
I would love to also get past -50 on the BATG by then, we’ll see. That Blood Bowl team looks very attractive… :smirk:

Chaos Dwarf Big Hat Lords painted battle-ready+

The Lords and their mounts got the same level of additional work as the Heroes. I’m especially happy with the Lammasu, and it also means my Big Hats are technically finished. I will try to get the bases of the infantry to match the lava style I adopted with the Bull Centaurs, and I want to quickly paint up very basic shields for the Warriors and characters.

Plus I’ve reached not only my primary goal of painting all my Big hats before CDOffline, I also painted 50 models by the end of March, which was my second goal. Only the thrice-cursed Imperium magazine is keeping my from the silver BATG-medal.

Another last minute progress here (this competition runs on UK time, right?) but I managed to paint 9 Squigs.

Yet another end-of-the-month buzzer beater.

12 Squigs for my Squig Herdaz, finally canceling out the Hobgrot purchase - with one model extra to once again climb the silver platform! Eagle-eyed readers may notice Daemonsmith Rosi in the background taking a keen interest in one of the squigs, and the one with the perfect pose for it as well.
