Going Blue!


Its been a VERY long time since my last update, and for that I'm very sorry, hopefully today's update will make up for that!

As you may or may not have guessed by the title or logo above Ive once again picked up another faction (its been pointed out recently, I don't collect a faction, I collect the whole game!)

The reason behind it was quite simple......STORMWALL!

The second he was released I rushed down to my LGS (Mad For Miniatures) and picked him up. After the club that night I set about building one of the coolest models Ive ever seen! The kit itself is lovely, but that's for another time! After a quick trip to the back garden to undercoat him I set about painting him.......Fast forward 12 hours and he was done!

At this point I had no intention of starting a new faction, I just wanted to own a Colossal, I was happy for him just to sit in the display cabinet, next to my Retribution, looking very very cool. I wont deny playing with some lists in my head, but that was as far as it went....until my lovely wife asked the question "did you rely just spend nearly £100 on a model your not going to use" to which I replied " your right darling I should start a Cygnar army".

Next day I was off down to the LGS again to pick up some models for my new Cygnar army. I came home and built up and painted the following -

Not a bad start eh?

Ive also finished Sloan, eCaine and a pair of Hunters, but for some reason they have evaded the Camera!

A few weeks into my Cygnar journey I was chatting to a local Cygnar player and he mentioned that he might be willing to part with his sizable Cygnar force! A little bargaining later and I'm spraying fairy power spray into an ice cream tub!

I know have nearly the entire faction......not bad for a month :p

My aims for this week are to get Arlan painted and test out a few lists, including the following -

Standard Army
PCs: 35 / 35
25 models

[00] Captain Victoria Haley (0 / 5 WJ remaining)
[10] >> Stormclad
[06] Arcane Tempest Gun Mages
[02] >> Arcane Tempest Gun Mage Officer
[06] >> Hunter
[04] Black 13th Gun Mage Strike Team
[06] Long Gunner Infantry (5 grunts)
[06] Long Gunner Infantry (5 grunts)

"BUT WAIT!"  I hear you cry. "WHERE IS STORMWALL?"

Ive noticed that every game Ive won with my Cygnar so far has included him, so I'm going to give him a one game break, don't worry tho the big guy will be destroying everyone again soon!

Hope you all enjoyed that, im off for now, but should be back next week with another update! Ive also got a battle report to upload from last month!
