Do you even base bruh?

Basing the models will always be a big step and commitment in this hobby.
Some of you enjoy it, some of you just do it, you know slap on some dirt and mix it with the PVA glue.
Some of you are like me, I wanna do it or I'll do it in my right step. If I skip it, you know those models will never get their bases done.
Then there are the guys that just don't do it. I mean not even a clean - up on the base, just still with the base colour splashed on it.

THANKFULLY  GW and Citadel released the Technical paint for about three years ago, first all the guys was like " so we are gonna buy this that we have been doing on are own for like 23 years?  Not gonna happend!  "

I was that dude until the technicals hit my store, some of you might know that I work in a toy store that sold Warhammer for ages. So when this product hit the store I was like: okay it's cool, I'll buy one and test it on a few models.
The next day I bought  four different types of them.
Since then it went ALOT faster and FUN to base the models!
The most used for me is Stirland Mud.  It looks great on it's own, even without  a wash or dry brush.
But when you do it fits the most tables or even on plain grass tables  because..  you know ... IT'S MUD!  Then a two meter tall space marine runs around,  throwing himself from cover to cover you would expect the grass being completely vanquished so for me it was a simple choice.

On these pictures I show my models that I have been using the technical paint on that I'm happy with.

Horus Heresy: Salamanders

I finally got my Pyroclasts and Contemptor dreadnought!
So now I'm pumped  to work on my Salamanders again!
I love the models, detailed and cool looking!

Look out for Cassian Dracos! The big boss!

The Siege Breakers Legio IV

I've used sentinels of Terra supplement not only try it out but to try a different play style.
I have been using not only one but three different types of units that I have never played with!
So this is something different I would say.
Iron Warriors are Siege Breakers so what I have selected for my 1850 pts list is Drop pod assault, and Heavy hitting stuff.

My new units are: Centurion Devastator squad, vindicators and Thunderfire cannons and I'm using a few different HQs to toy around with. The idea is to use templates and make use of the Bolter Drill doctrine.
Here comes a Picture- dump of my WIP for the Iron warriors, notice it's work in progress so bear with me guys!

In it's full glory!
notice that vindicators  and the rest will soon be added

This is the Legio IV's comander (Kantor conversion)

A fully functional commander if I wanna go with something different.

So this little bunny-guy with an old Khorne head, is now Lysander.

This awesome looking shield is made of an old Bretonian shield and a necklace part.  

His cape, it came out nice if think.

It is very unique what the grey knight kit come with good parts to convert with, can I see a chaplain? 

Techmarine for one of the thunderfire

These guys are my Centurion Devastator squad with my own converted Grav- cannons and amplifiers . 

A simple OSL for making it look glow and I went with green because my Plasma is blue and Volkite and other microwave- guns are redish. 

The destroyer squad

with a BIG..

.. ASS CANNON!... oh sorry missile launcher...

SO, here it is!
Thunderfire cannons! I will make a great little post in the future about these guys when I have played a few more games with them.. want I can say from now is that they are rock solid.

I took my time to base the most of the models right away instead of waiting a year with it.
It made a lot of impression of the models rightly so because one-way-coloured.

The list is following:

-Sentinels of Terra-
Pedro Kantor
5 man Terminator Tactical Squad
5 Stern guard in a drop pod
3 Centurion Devs armed with Graviton Cannons and Graviton Amplifier 
X2 5 man tac squad with plasma and combi plasma  in drop pods
2 thunderfire Cannons
1 Vindicator

Aegis Defense Line

With the allied detachment of Iron Hands with:
-Clan Raukaan-
Master of the Forge
5 Stern guard in a drop pod
5 man scout squad
1 Vindicator
If I have the points I will have some of the pods with beacons or at least one.

Models that I have for swap out and try thing are:
More scouts (snipers)
A regular Space Marine Captain with Power Sword so with a simple conversion he could really be any special HQ
Librarian (Converted(soon) to be Tigi)
Few more Tacticals and heavy Weapons, they are suppose to be Destroyer Squad with converted Jump- Packs so I converted the heavy weapons from GK box to look like the missile launcher that is used with Phosphex bombs and Rad Missiles.
A Dreadnought, haven't decided what type yet but a Siege Breaker- type.
Few more Tactical Terminators

I hope you took your time and read and looking forward a much as I do to see them steamrolling the battlefield!

See ya' guys!
Truly yours! Fillee40k
