Cars and Guitars, Minis and Time... Japanese as well?

Hiya! Rune Here with some updates on my life i guess...

On the left here is one of my latest additions to my space wolves army. I have painted two Vindicators in the last month, the only difference in their paint scheme is that the siege shield is Yellow and black :)

Time is a funny thing eh... they say time is infinite, although i'm not too sure about that.
I find myself in the lack of time constantly, with playing guitar and bass, some drums in along with it.
The car is standing still on the parking lot and won't fix itself so i guess i have to do that as well.

I just started a japanese course, and painting minis gets a little bit sidetracked in between all of this.
Yesterday seemed to be a quite productive day, considering i basecoated and washed 28 Grey Hunters and layed on the main colour on 12 of them! Progress seems slow, but in reality i guess it's quite fast when i put my efforts up against the efforts of my friends! I'm hoping to get a few smaller games in with the space wolves in a friendly laid back tournament this weekend. maybe i'll even write my first Batreps, gotta start somewhere.

This Flyrant on the right is done this summer i've been messing around with tyranids lately and my tervigon is soon to be posted here as it is well underway and only needs some feathering and some small washes here and there and it'll be done :)

i've also started to work on a new hobby table, i hopefully will get up a WIP series on that until it is finished.
We'll see what time will let me do since i'm a busybusy fella :P

I admit that it feels good writing down this stuff since it lets me organize my mind :)

Until next time, have fun with the hobby :)

6th Edition! Space Wolves Yet Again!


Rune here with some thoughts on 6th ed and space wolves.

6th edition seems to have made me a better player because it has made me think more on my chices for my army list as well as how i use all my units.

After a few games against necrons and tyranids, i have come to the conclusion that Space wolves are still Twin linked awesome.

The thing i find myself short of in most of the games i play, are Grey Hunters.... I usually play 1500 Pts Limit so i tend to take three troop choices as a minimum, while very often not getting a 4th because of te lack of points, but i'd like to say that the 4th group would be very welcome in 1750 armies.

As my armylist is now it contains:

Rune Priest w/ Runic Armour, 2 Divination Powers.(Warlord) 120
Wolf Priest w/ Saga Of The Hunter, Combi-Plasma, Melta Bombs 125

Grey Hunters(7) w/ Meltagun, Wolf Standard, MotW, Rhino 175
Grey Hunters(7) w/ Meltagun, Wolf Standard, MotW, Rhino 175
Grey Hunters(10) w/ 2x Plasmagun, Wolf Standard, MotW,  190

Wolf Guard(3) w/ 2x Combi-Melta, 1x Combi-Plasma 69
Dreadnought w/ 2x Twin-Linked Autocannons 125
Dreadnought w/ 2x Twin-Linked Autocannons 125

Heavy Support:
Long Fangs(6) w/ 5x Missile Launchers 140
Vindicator w/ Siege Shield 125
Vindicator w/ Siege Shield 125

1494 in total...

Any thoughts?

Can do pretty allright against Flyers as well with a good deal of Twin Linked weapons and the Rune Priest!

Space Wolves And The Passing Of Time!

So i haven't been doing much on the front of blogging since it's very hard to keep the motivation up when there ain't many people keeping tabs...

Well, it's not like i expected there to be a million followers since i would first have to make a name!

So here goes! We're trying again :)

I have gotten my wolves mostly done for a few months back, when 6th Edition released, just to find out, i don't like the theme anymore. Sick of it guess.

Anyways, I've started using my airbrush alot more as of late with painting big Monstrous Creatures and some  Vindicators and basecoating my Long Fangs. The new Theme will Use a bright grey colour similar to the old "Codex Grey" from the GW collection. what i really like about the new colour is that it has a shimmer of blue in the grey.

In my last post i showed you an army list i was planning on using, it's been re-thought a bit, and i removed the Aegis and added in a Rune Priest instead. Some Changes In wargear as well on most things ;)
