On my table lately, I've just been trying to find a scheme I like for the Juggernauts in the Bloodcrusher unit. I finally settled on this one, as the bronze/gunmetal contrasts nicely with the bright red of the Bloodletter riding it! This is a WIP still, have some washes to do, but the unit definitely pops on the battlefield so I am pretty happy with it.
Speaking of battlefields... Finally won a Maelstrom game with my Daemonkin! It was a narrow margin of victory (7 points to my opponent's 6) but I finally feel like I am starting to get a decent grasp on how the army handles. I also have started moving away from what internet lists tell me to do, which helps since internet lists are not my local meta!
For example... internet wisdom says that Forgefiends are not a viable unit for the codex. I disagree... my Forgefiend has been a reliable source of S8 shooting that my army badly needs. Could I do the same with Heldrakes? Sure, but I'd be cutting 4 of my S8 shots out for a unit that costs approximately the same points, and has to remain zooming to be any more resilient. The Forgefiend already has a 5+ Daemon save so the extra autocannon is worth it to me. I can pretty reliably strip 2 HP or more off a AV12 vehicle with it each turn, which is very valuable. It has become a valuable anchor to my rear lines.
Anyway, I'm on a tangent. I should be getting a lot done in the next few weeks, as I have a tournament coming up on March 12 that I want my models to be completed for.
As if I could get any paler!
