End's in Sight

So! Remember how I got me a landspeeder? Well, I did and it's ready for priming! On top of that, I've finished my Sargent and 4th Company's Commander with a Librarian about...halfway done.

The speeder was interesting to put together and I didn't realize until it was too late that you needed a specific set of doors in order to put the missile launchers on, so it's carrying a multi melta and heavy flamer and I have an excuse to get another one. It came together pretty easily and I'm feeling more confidant about moving forward with a Rhino or some other transport or heavy support.

New HQ Added!

So an update on the proud 4th Company of the Warrior Adepts!

I've been working through my Terminators and just need to add their wash, but while out and about today I found something I've been looking for over the past new months.

A Chaplain!

Elbow Deep

So I've got about three things on my plate right now and they're coming along nicely. I'm finishing up work on my Terminator squad, have a Commander ready for priming and almost have a librarian ready to go. The Librarian is the first resin model I've worked with and I need to make sure that it's stuck together proper-like.

Pictures coming this weekend with more stuff in the pipeline!

Warrior Adepts Add Ons

So with the addition of my commander and librarian, I think I have everything I need for a bare bones game. I picked up a Speeder on a whim last weekend so once that's done I'll be meandering down to the local GW store for a game.

Wheeeeee! Zoom! Pew! Pew!

Warrior Adepts Update and Birthday Gifts!

Update for 4th Company!

The Dreadnought is coming along nicely. I've finished painting the front half and continued the quartered scheme through the detailing. Still liking it and the only little detail bit left is deciding what the entombed battle brother's name will be. Pondering over a few that have a bit of a Roman/Latin flavor, but if anyone has any suggestions I'm open.

Warrior Adepts Update: First Ones Done!

So while I waited for a plumber to come to fix a busted water pipe, I knuckled down and finished up my first batch of rescued Warrior Adepts! It's the same mix of Tactical and Assault marines I've been working on and I'm pretty pleased with how they came out.


Obviously there's still a little bit of work to do. I need to base them (thinking gravel-ish rather than sand) and they still need their chapter/squad marks added, but the bulk is done.

So after searching all the the game stores in my area, locating a 40K 7th ed rulebook was a bust. I satisfied my noob self by settling for getting the Space Marine codex and while it's a nice book, it's not the core rules that I needed to actually do more than paint little plastic men.

I took my new codex and my Warrior Adepts up to my parents house for a weekend trip to DC and on a whim decided to see if there was a Games Workshop up in their neck of the woods.

And there was!

Warrior Adepts Update

Alrighty, update time for my first batch of Space Marines. My rescued battle brothers are rehabing nicely into my first batch of Warrior Adepts and the rest are just about ready for their final scrub down.

I'm getting used to painting them although I still find myself doing a few passes to neaten up the quartering and the little details that are harder to reach since the minis came pre assembled.

The boys are going to be members of 4th Company and I'm going to be marking them with formal Codex Astartes company markings, so some since green trim went on today. The final base colors are going down now (the weapons/pouches ect) and I hope to be putting washes on soon.

In other news, I picked up a Dreadnaught yesterday! He's new so I get the set up that I really want asthetics wise and I think with my Terminators, I'll have a basic battle ready group up and running soon.

Recovered Battle Brothers

So I decided to go with the Warrior Adepts. No know founding chapter, so I fgure I'll be able to try out the various chapter play styles that way...and I still really like the quartered paint scheme.

                          Recovering battle brothers from the grips of Chaos; aka the 2nd hand bin

Started the long soak for all my second hand boys, a couple of them had multiple layers of paint and two had some nasty enamal paint on them which has been a bear to get off. I've been doing a multi day soak in Simple Green since I had it around and while it's not the fastest stripper in the west, it's doing the job.

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!

Super Bowl Sunday! Dip was eaten, commercials were laughed at and people sporting were watched. But, before that there was painting and assembling.

The Skittering Horde

So about a month ago I wandered into my local game store looking for minis for my D&D game and I ended walking out with a bunch of these little guys...
                                                          "Hey, how ya doin'?"


It's a little hole in the internet, but it's my little hole on the internet. 

Anyway, welcome to ChitterSqueek! a little slice of internet home to show off my various gaming/nerd craft. I'll be posting work that I'm doing for the 5ed Dungeons&Dragons game I'm running, leather working (which I have always wanted to learn), video gameing and my newest obsession which is Warhammer Fantasy Battle  and Warhammer 40K. 

I aim to update at least once a week and I hope that anyone who stumbles down into my little den enjoys what they find!

                                                              Let the games begin!
