Miniature Monday: Cybertronic Chasseur

Quite some time since the last Miniature Monday from me, but now I'm eager to bring this back and put up photos of some newly finished models each Monday. So what is in store for today then, well this mini has been finished for some time now but haven't had time to show it. It's the first model and test piece for my Cybertronic Chasseurs. I have made one model for this force until now, the Exterminateur which can be found here. And this Chasseur is following in the same color scheme.

These pictures weren't all that great I'm afraid (didn't use my Tripod) and I also see I need some more work on the skin (another highlight would do wonders) when I see these pics. But this army is supposed to be quite fast to paint so I don't know yet. It looks quite alright in my eyes, anyway hope you like it.

My 2014 recap and future projects

2014 was an eventful year for me both personally (I got my second daughter in Mars 31st) and hobby wise because this was the year I painted more non-GW models than I have done totally in my hobby career before. This has much to do with the release of Warzone: Resurrection which I focused on this year.

My Bauhaus force will grow even bigger in the coming year. 

No Painting Challenge? 
I didn't do an painting challenge last year, I don't think I would top 2013 anyway. But this is mainly due that I now paint models from different systems that so the Points system I used from WHFB and 40K didn't really work.

I will however do something else, that I have seen many other blogs do. Keep a tab on how many models you paint. And how many you bought over the year.

So how did I do this year then?

WZ:R Bauhaus
10 Hussars
1 Vulkan
1 Angelica Drachen
1 Max Steiner
5 Venusian Rangers
5 Etoles Mortant
2 Vorreiters
3 Juggernauts

= 28 models

WZ:R Dark Legion
1 Alakhai the Cunning
1 Razide
10 Undead Legionnaires
2 Necromutant Leaders

= 14 models

WZ:R Imperial
1 Greyhound LAFV
3 Golden Lions
1 Hurricane Walker
5 Blood Berets
10 Trenchers
2 Imp. Commanders
1 Brigadier P.D. Rist

= 23 models

WHFB: Warriors of Chaos
1 Throgg the Trollking
4 Chaos Trolls
1 Dragon Ogre
1 Chaos Ogre
18 Nurgle Warriors (rep)

= 25 models

WHFB: Dwarfs
20 Clansmen (HW/Sh)
1 Grudge Thrower (and three crew)
1 Gyrocopter
1 Cannon (and three crew)
1 Hammerer

= 30 models

WHFB: Empire
1 Captain
10 Handgunners
10 Crossbowmen

= 21 models

X-Wing: Miniatures Game
1 X-Wing
1 Tie Fighter

= 2 models

Total number of painted model 2014 is: 143

This is if I just count every piece as a single model, regardless if it's a big monster, character or just an normal infantry model. So this can vary very much depending on what models I paint up. I might do another system where a character is worth 3 models, a monster 5 etc. as they take more time to paint up. But for now this is what Iv'e achieved. Less than expected I must say but there are many models in there where I took a lot of time to paint, like Throgg, the Gyrocopter etc. So I'm happy with the result non the less and I think I can beat this quite easily this coming year.

Future Projects
I must try to do one project at a time and get that finished and then move on to the next one, easier said than done for me though.

My main focus in 2015 will still be Warzone: Resurrection. But as I get more and more models finished I hope I can get in more projects for different game systems. I have a lot of almost finished units for both my Empire and WoC armies that I want to get completed. I also want to paint up some Deadzone this year, 

List of hobby commitments for 2015 

Warzone: Resurrection
Finish my Imperial Force, including some new models that will arrive in the year. 
Finish my Bauhaus Force
Paint up some more Dark Legion
Start to paint up my Cybertronic and maybe even Brotherhood

20 Hammerers
1 Organ Gun

Paint up a Enforcer Faction starter
Paint up a Plague Faction Starter
Build and paint up a lot more terrain

One of the Empire Units I want to get finished, 14 models left.

Quite a lot of stuff, but better to hope to achieve all this even if I doubt it. I will proably paint up some other stuff than the things listed here as well. And I have several projects already started which I want to get finished, that is my main goal.

That is all for now, I hope to bring you a lot more stuff on the blog the coming year. With more tutorials and also more youtube clips from me.

News & Rumours: Verminlord and info sighted!

So next End times book is about mainly Skaven and the coming of the Horned Rat. So what will be be seing as models to accompany this? Vermin Lords of course and they will probably be a lot better in-game than the previous versions.

Translated info taken from Faet 212:

All 5 Verminlords have a 5+ ward and 6 wounds

Deceiver 500pt, must take skitterleap but rerolls cast attempts, -1 to shoot at, has shooting attack

Corruptor 500 pt, must take plague but rerolls cast attempts, paired weapon with asf

Warbringer 550 pt, must take death frenzy but rerolls attempts, paired weapon with doomglaive d3 wound

Warpseer 500 pt, must take warp lightning but rerolls attempts, +1 ward save while he has his orb, orb is a thrown weapon that is a template

Lord Skreetch Verminking is 650, always has 13th and rerolls casting attempts, has 2 weapons 1 asf 1 doomglaive chooses each turn

Stats for all of them vary slightly

There are also a few passages in the WD hinting at Grey Seers summoning Vermin Lords...

The Verminlords kit looks like it is on a square base possibly? Very hard to tell.

Since the Verminlords doesn't choose his plague spell I can take a plague priest and double up on Plague. Nice!

There is also a one page article on "the risk of summoning" vermin lords, and a story when Thanquol tried to summon one & summoned Skarbrand
