Emperor's Dilemma: Mystics

When i started playing 40k again after a 5 year break i came back with a truck load of random space marine stuff, and a fully fledged Daemonhunters army.   Complete with no less then 30 grey knights, 10 grey knight Terminators, 3 God hammer land raiders, 1 land raider crusader, 2 Inquisitors, loads of minions, and both Characters from the book.

So Naturally i took them up and played with them for a bit, added a few figures and even got second place in a local 1k tournament with them.

Puppies List

Had my first loss today with the puppies, while i certainly look back and see a few choices made that could have helped, lady luck was most certainly against me.

Grey Hunters painted

So i'v finished the paint job's on my grey hunter's.  I choose them first because while cool i wanted more practice with the paint scheme before i moved on to the terminators and lastly my HQ's.

Overall i think it came out well, they look great from game distances (so like 2 feet away) and still look pretty darn good close up, though that depends on your personal taste i suppose.  I favor a dirty well used look to my paint jobs, not only is it easier....which i won't lie is a big plus in my book, but for me anyone going to war isn't going to be sporting prestinly perfect armor.  I'm no amazing painter, after all this time iv picked up a good few tricks and tips, but most of mine focus on getting the miniature playing quality quickly instead of being microscope quality.

Anyway take a look, click the pics for big versions.

This weekend we have an Apoc Game happening at our local warhammer group, something tells me its going to be crazy because our local forums have been buzzing with activity about it and seems like everyone is going.

Not only this but there have been a large amount of home made data sheets up for community approval and lots of questions about "how many big nasty things can i bring?".  Which leads me to the first part of my post subject which will be followed by my IG list ill bring to this game.

Puppies Test run

so on Friday night i picked up my 50 odd space wolves deal.  The next morning i had plans to play again at the local comic shop, and that morning i decided i was going to play the wolves....

Now i dont mind Proxy'ing, it really doesnt bother me.  But that said i dislike doing it myself whenever possible and so i set out to make a 1750 list out of the models i had, that were assembled, despite what they might have or in my case not have..

The end list was something like
