What happened to Old Shatter Hands???
Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I think I took an almost two month hiatus to focus on other things. I've still managed to get some painting done, including a couple new rhinos for my Blood Angels, Dante, and a Baal Predator. I've started a new Tau army and I hope to get some pics up as soon as I have them painted. I'm taking a new approach to army building. I've decided to start with an army list, assemble everything and paint in bulk using the citadel spray gun. I plan on painting all of the infantry in one go. That means 24 Fire Warriors and 8 Pathfinders all in a line as I go down and paint stage by stage. Then I'll reward myself by getting a squad of battlesuits down, then it's on to doing all the Devilfish in one go....4 of them! It's sounds difficult but I think it will result in a uniform and beautifully painted army.
I believe my list is well structured to lay down lots of fire while keeping on the move. 4 Devilfish, 2 Hammerheads, 2 squads of XV8 Suits, and 2 Pirahnas. It should be fast and deadly, though it may have some trouble in dealing with AV 14 vehicles. I might consider throwing in some Broadside BattleSuits. Well, keep posted. Old Shatter is back I promise.
