I don't get to play as often as I would like. Oh, but when I do!

I was able to drive up north for a game last Saturday and meet up with a good friend for a game.
We decided to play a smaller game, only 1500 points. We were both a little late to the shop which made us both on time. Ha!
I took the Orks and he brought his Raven guard Space Marines
(Who will from this point on be reffered to as Da' Raven Gitz!)
we had a fantastic game!
But see for yourself!

Da' First Kontakt at Gor-Gor prime.

This will kick off my Narrative campaign. 
Chronicling the Heroic (but ultimately doomed?) defense of the Phoenix subsystem.

Down time.

I guess I'll start off with........

 I received another package today, Necrons! These will be built and painted very quickly. Not a whole huge lot. I have textured the bases and started the assembly today. Should be painting by Monday.
I am also close to done packing the Necron project in battle foam which arrived on Tuesday.
Being so close to the finish line is exciting! I am taking the rest of this week and weekend off to clean and organize my shop space. If I don't I won't be able to paint!!!

Wednesday I got a good hold on project TAU.  I won't get into that for a few weeks.
Their are whispers of Imperial Knight titans in the not so far off future. And I look forward to the opportunity!

Vow season begins again in May and I have some new models incoming for that. I had a lot of fun last year and have the honer to be Subforum champion for the Imperial Guard.(2012)
I have a lot of catch up painting to do this summer and I will try to get caught up! But that said I am not going to kill myself to do it. I will also be parting with some armies this year. ( Look for the pictures very soon!)
The Space wolves will be the first among many.
I will also be selling some of my friends armies for them. It seems we all have more then we use these days.

And lastly I will be able to game this Saturday! I have not had a game yet this year.
The Orks are looking for a nasty skrum with some beakys and we're plannin' to give their soft nether regions a good stompin!
I will take pictures and post a report.

As always thanks for reading! More mayhem to come!
I expect to be back to my normal scheduled posting next week, with pictures!

Necrons. And we have lift off!

This week I have been sealing the miniatures and doing my final checks.
Their are always things that get missed or don't look just right.
That's just how it goes. 

These guys are ready to go!

This is the best picture of this C'tan I could get and it's so much better then the pictures I posted earlier!

This big baddy was hard to shoot! He's so big that it's a real challenge to get good pictures.

This was the best I could do to get a picture of the C'tan. He is still a little off in the pictures.
These pictures were taken with a Kodak easy share.

The weather was too windy to try to get pictures of the very small parts.
I am leaving a lot of weapons apart from their units so that my client will be able to pick an choose what he wants to use or magnetize them.

Their are actually more miniatures in some cases then shown. I chose to only get a picture of one in a few cases so that I could keep the pictures uncluttered and not have to fight both the wind and any background, mostly my yard...

Edited here++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I have some late arrivals to post. No wip pictures,Just finished pictures!
So here you are.

Thank you for looking! Comments are welcome!
