A 40k conversion project.. I decided I wanted the Imperial General from the new Dawn Of War 2 expansion to lead my army. Unfortunately they don't make a figure of him, so I had to make due with bits from other models and substantial use of green stuff.
It's not my best paint work, but I'm happy with how it came out.
This is a 1/35 M1 Abrams from Academy, which was my second modern armour project, after a Leopard 2A4 which I have since discarded. I built this kit back in 2003, and gave it a fictitious paint job inspired by camo schemes found on German WWII armour. This kit went together very well, and the work VERY well. The paint job and the excellent tracks and wheels are the only reasons why I have not discarded this model. It just looks so COOL.
NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT FAV MY DEVIATION WITHOUT A COMMENT, I GREATLY PREFER COMMENTS THAT FAVS!
First Field Report
Well my Mechancius army had their first set of games last week and it worked out pretty well, with a few exceptions.
First they played in a small 600pt tourney at the Newcastle store; I entered with the 2 chariots and 4 squads of 6 horrors, 1 with the changling. I annihilated my first two opponents utterly but the 3rd proved a problem due to the nullzone power. If it hadnt been for that I would have likely won it instead of drawing and coming 2nd.
Then it was on to the big 1750pt games against my friends space marine chapter. The army still required some touch ups like squad marking and the plaguebearers has yet to be created, which if Im lucky youll see one tomorrow.
Overall it went okay the flamers earned the points every time as did the princes, the avatar however first game it scattered badly and was destroyed during deep strike and the 2nd game it was destroyed in its first combat by some bad rolls and a thunder hammer. But as the week went on I learned how to use the army better, one game I used a small Iron Guard (horrors) unit as bait to lure an expensive assault squad led by a chaplain into an ambush from my flamers and Golem (Daemon Prince).
The only downside to the week was out of the 5 players I faced 1 found the army too confusing which clearly made the game less enjoyable for him. This is what I feared would happen. Now I wonder if I should just use the daemon army for games at my gaming club and not use them at competitive tournaments until the Necron codex comes out. Anyway will see how the army plays at Warhammer World on Thursday at the summer war tournament. If it goes well and no problems occur Ill use it at the Open War tournament in October.

Cleared out during...anytime cleaning. The house has been a wreck for MONTHS now. can attest that there was at least one act of Ceiling Cat, and those aren't covered by insurance.
So yeah. I just got this for kicks anyways (a toy store was going out of business), and it was waiting for the right owner. Looks like it's been found. That, and it was EFFING HUGE in my room; it's not gonna fit too well with all my snake cages in there.
A certain BEWD fan will be very pleased to see this.
