Tag Archives: Heldrake
I know Rob @ Warhammer39,999 loves it when I do updates to models that have made seemingly little progress and all but here’s an update on my Heldrake :P Seriously though, I do these little updates to keep my motivation going. I often reach these points where I sit back and think, I’ve actually made some progress. This is one of those points.
I absolutely love the Heldrake. It’s been one of my most consistently performing units game to game and I like the model as well. It has also been a model I have not been looking forward to painting because there’s a lot too it. I enjoy painting detailed and intricate models but this thing just has so much surface area that I know damn well it’s going to take me forever with what little time I’ve had lately for painting.
With the holidays I have not managed to get a ton done lately. The other week I did paint up one Chaos Biker – shots of him some day. Otherwise it’s been modeling, and even then slowly. Here you’ll see my Biker Champion almost fully assembled, nothing special. It will be nice to stop proxying an Ork Biker as a Champion.
I have been doing a lot of experimenting with the new Chaos Marines. I’m done with struggling playing lists using what I own and I need to grow the army. To that end I’ve begun working on a list featuring Spawn and Bikers so far. I’ve been toying around with a few other units as well and have learned a few things.
