Apocalypse season begins!

So this is an update long overdue(again). Unfortunately my posting has slowed down of late, and I'm not really sure why. I've been working on the army, but at a slower rate, and other bits of real life seem to getting in the way. 

Anyhow, I have some progress today. 

Firstly the first game of apocalypse summer happened last weekend.
I managed to get this shot off at the start off imperial turn 2, but after that got distracted with dice rolling to take any others!

You can see my chaos side at the bottom of the pic, with my plentiful guardsmen taking up minesweeper and cannon fodder duty. At this point, my allies's strike force of 50 rhino mounted chaos marines were still in reserve, which may be why we appear so out numbered.
This was the first game of the season, so we started small(ish), and this game was 6000 points a side. The next game is due in a couple of weeks, with an additional 2000 points bringing us up to 8k. I have a secret super heavy planned for this game, if it turns up and I can paint it in time.

Anyway, in terms of recent modelling, these 2 tanks finished off my first 3k army list. 

'Dead metal' the Punisher.

 I feel I'm learning more about weathering with each tank I do. It's a skill I very much want to nail. 

'Sledge' the vanquisher.

The chain around this converted vanquisher's barrel added some detail I think works well.

As i mentioned, Next up is a secret super heavy, and maybe a daemon or two!

Watch this space.
