Grey Knights: DaBoyz GT 2011 Project Army *Complete!*
Posted by hyv3mynd
I also painted a chimera for my henchman squad.
My razorback got a magnetized hunter killer missile.
I slapped some ruins bitz on my storm raven base. I'm actually pretty pleased with the outcome. I dry brushed in some teal patches on the bronze to resemble a patina like some of the new fantasy ogres have in the recent White Dwarf photos. You probably can't see it here, but check it out in person if you pass me by at the GT.
I finished all the infantry bases, added some faint OSL glow/reflections on the bases closest to the force weapons, and finished the army with a finecast techmarine (grenade dispenser). I gave him a blue weapon like the henchmen have as it's just a power weapon. The libby also has blue so you can tell him apart from the normal terminators easier. I wanted the army-wide impression to be black and white with red and blue weapons to give a strong police feeling.
Anyways, that's all of it. I hope you enjoyed following my progress as much as I enjoyed painting the army. I should be able to pump out battle reports from the event over the next few weeks as I recover from the 40k burn-out I will no doubt experience after 6 months of solid painting and the 9 games I'll be playing.
As of Tuesday morning, there were 96 registered for the GT and 12 teams of four signed up for the team event with many more looking to join up. We may break 100 players for the GT and 14 teams by the time all the laggers get in the system or show up at the door. This will make it the largest showing ever and should be a great time!
