For your perusal, here are two of the test models I am working on to base my new 30k Death Guard army off of. I am going for a somewhat cleaner look, though I am not keeping it quite clean and crisp by using some Sepia and Earthshade washes.

I finished up the test model for the Medusan Warriors I was working on. Graviton weapons are green apparently!
I worked on my unit of Bezerkers for a killteam game!
Last Sunday, I even played a game of Killteam against my son's Tau.
Currently, I am anxiously awaiting the Traitor Legions supplement. I am undecided on whether I want to remain with Word Bearers, or switch to another traitor legion. I have been leaning toward Death Guard, but I wanted to wait and see before making a major decision like that.
I also have joined the current trend of using Instagram to post my pictures. You can find me under the username cannedflame2005.
Soon I am gonna start doing some crazy conversions, so stay tuned for that!

For my second game of the day, I played yet another Ork player. This time, it was a mechanized Meganob list coupled with a particularly brutal Bomber detachment, including the super heavy bomber! It was quite an impressive model, with the contents of practically an entire bitz box dumped onto it.
I wasted a turn of shooting on it before I realized it was a pointless exercise. I was under the impression that knocking 3 points off a Superheavy gave you a VP, but in this tournament that ended up not being the case.

You also could use the tickets you earned to gain entry for some very unusual units! The Points Limit for the tournament was 2000 points, but with tickets, you could buy "slots" for a Superheavy unit, or even use 30k lists! I had considered using 30k Iron Hands but decided against it this time. I stuck with a familiar 40k Fist of Medusa formation, with a decent mix of Grav, Dreadnoughts, and tough Command Squads.

- Early on, not only did my Land Raider actually managed to explode a Maulerfiend, but my Slow-and-Purposeful unit of Heavy Bolters (thanks Captain in Cataphractii armor) managed to shoot an unit of bikers that hadn't gotten to move yet, causing them to flee off the table edge and netting me First Blood.
- I nailed my terminators in the deepstrike, getting them exactly where I wanted them to go. Before I could charge, however, a unit of CSM and a Warpsmith charged them, locking them in CC. My terminators, all armed with chainfists or powerfists, proceeded to whiff every to-hit roll they made for the next two turns, while the Warpsmith chopped them to bits. Only one member survived by fleeing the combat, only to be gunned down the next turn. The price of cowardice... This was probably the most costly point of the game, and very likely determined the outcome. Had that unit survived, it would have gone on to charge another Heavy Support Forgefiend and contested the 5th objective.
- A poor rhino was taken down to 1 HP and immobilized in the first turn by an angry maulerfiend, where it stayed for the entire game. It finally fixed itself during turn 5, and was immediately destroyed by an Obliterator :(
- A maulerfiend charged my Captain, getting him down to one wound. He failed his leadership and retreated from the combat, allowing him to get an It Will Not Die roll off. He then joined a Command Squad and proceeded to wipe a unit of Chaos Terminators off of an objective, crushing the last remaining two members with his Chainfist.

So in order to keep up with tanks in an Armored Task Force, I decided I needed to make a more mechanized version of a Techmarine. I also dig the idea of a Conversion Beamer, blasting things from afar and staying in the backline with a mobile kiting unit, making the techmarine a dual-purpose unit.
So, here is the finished product, after much kitbashing and converting. I'm pretty happy with the result, and look forward to using it in the future.
Then, I enlisted the aid of my girlfriend to help me paper mache the entire thing. Then I sealed it with PVA glue brushed on over the top!
I used toothpicks, and hot glue, to make some creepy rock formations inside the cave... I also used some screen and a few straws to make a nifty pipe and industrial area.
Lastly, I sprayed the entire board with spraypaint, after leaving it overnight to dry. I put black primer on first, then dusted it with a ruddy brown color I had left over.
