The magical 500

500 points done (with the exception of 4 Spotter drones) ready for my first game tomorrow. Really looking forward to throwing some dice around!



My first 500 points is nearly there. Got the X-Launcher team done this morning. Happy bunny. 7 figures to paint then I’m there!

I can’t wait to get my first game under my belt. 

I’ve been doing a bit of work this evening on base coating and shading the 7 figures I need for 500 points. Hopefully they should be finished in the next couple of days. As I’ve got my first game on Thursday all being well. 

This is how the army looks so far.  

Follow my leader

Unwinding this evening and I have got my C3 Strike Command Squad finished. Also a shot with the finished unit and an X-Launcher lurking in the background. Might get that done on Friday evening. 

Really like how these figures are painting up.  Nice easy limited palette colour scheme.  

Also a nice surprise this evening, came home to find my Strike Squad featured on the Warlord Facebook page. 

When the snowman brings the snow……

Finally got my first squad finished! The old eyes are still just about working. Really like how they look, I wasn’t too sure after the first test figure if I’m honest. As a unit however, I really like how the colours tie together. 
Another unit of 7, Command team and X-launcher support to do then that’s my first 500 points. Then I can get sone games in.

 I am really liking the miniatures from Warlord Games.  The plastics are lovely to build and paint with loads of character.  I have a back story for the army in my head, at some stage I’ll get it down on paper (or tablet!)

These figures were painted with the new range of Games Workshop paints.  These are a massive improvement on the old stuff.  It has been a long long time since I used GW stuff, having decided on Vallejo.  The expanded GW colour range and quality of product has very much impressed. 

Saturday night’s alright (for fighting) 

Thought I’d finally get around to working out the size of my Concord C3 army, and take some photos!

The army currently consists of :-

  • Strike Trooper Command
  • 7 x 5 man Strike Trooper squads.  Armed with a Plasma Lance each and a Spotter Drone
  • Support Drone
  • 2 x light Combat Drones
  • Medium Combat Drone
  • Transport Drone
  • X-Launcher Team 

Current points total for the army stands at 1470 points.

I do plan on expanding the force to include all the options from the current C3 army list, so I will have plenty of options to choose from. 

Part of today’s plan was to actually get things undercoated, but sadly it has just been damp and cold here so anything involving spray paint was out of the question.  When I finally get round to painting I think I will be sticking to a “Space Wolf” style scheme and basing the miniatures with a winter theme.

I am really itching to get these painted…. I also have quite a few more drones to assemble too. So the army total will be even greater.  That said, I want to get these finished first.  The writing bug also appears to have hit me, so I’ll be drafting up a bit of background fiction for this force too! 

Reinforcements arrive!

A bit of an early finish today so finally I have had chance to tackle the metal miniatures from Warlord.  Nice easy miniatures to build and good quality casts too.  Very little cleaning was required.

Hopefully the weather will be good tomorrow and I can actually get some stuff undercoated ready for painting.  I am itching to give the hairy sticks a run out! 

I have also managed to pick up a copy of the Xilos Horizon box set so I have lots more C3 Strike troops too.  Really looking forward to painting and actually playing something.
