Work on the Harbingers of Joyous Degradation have slowed considerably, mainly because the event that I was building them for has released a rules pack that prevents me from using them....bugger!
Fortunately, as one door closes another door opens, and I've managed to get a last minute entry to the Caledonian Revolution.
This has given me the shot in the arm I need to continue working on them and finish them off.
I learnt a great deal last weekend about the Harbingers and how I need to use them. My inexperience of Daemons and Renegade Knights really took its toll. I'd never used either of them before and a tournament setting proved to be a steep learning curve for me. To compound this disadvantage I was playing in a team tournament, which, in case you have never played in such an event, is completely different to regular 40k. Despite that, I still had a great time and really enjoyed the weekend thanks to my good friend Michael and meeting up with some old friends that I hadn't seen in a while (mainly Team Wales who I got to play against twice).
Of course, all of this wasn't the real reason that I struggled so much last weekend, no, the real reason was because I was using a stand in model for my warlord in the form of an old Juan Diaz model!
|I'm still a fan of the Juan Diaz models, but the newer Daemons have a charm that is equally as good, if not better.
I'm reasonably happy with how she has turned out considering she was completed in a day.
You'll notice that she's mounted on one of the new GW oval bases, Hopefully it will help people realise she's a Herald on a Steed and that the wings are just there to help with her speed.
I'm feeling much more confident now that I have a proper Warlord to lead my Harbingers.....the fact that I learnt so much last weekend will be purely coincidental should I do any better this weekend, it will be all down to Sheee'la'sar!
I've played at the venue where the Caledonian Revolution is being held at, so I'm confident I'll be able to take some reasonable photos, so expect to see a report on how the Harbingers fared next week......Until next time, may Our Lady grant you her number ;-)
