Default Addictive models......

Okay, I wll explain what I meant when I say addictive models.

For some reason these models are so beautiful and also so fun to built and paint that you just want to have tons of them, even if you do not even use all of them. You just buy them just to have their feeling of awesomeness.

Sometimes you may convert the addictive models, and they caused you to even love the models even more and you buy them in droves to convert them to the uber-awesomeness standards that you put on them.

For me those addctive models are the new plastic Chaos Terminators (I think I will buy another box of them and maybe a Space Marine terminator box to convert them with tons of bitz) and the Crisis suits (I do not mind more but I really know that I have to stop tau for awhile).

What are your opinions about those kinds of models and what are the most addictive models for you?

though i only have 3, i have a fascination with techmarines.

so far i have a terminator techmarine with lightning claws and full harness, a techmarine with full harness riding a bike and a techmarine with full harness with a jump pack (WIP)

my next project is a techmarine on an attack bike with a servitor manning the heavy weapon

though on the way back from games day last weekend a friend of mine managed to convince me to get 2 baneblades...................

i shall be converting 1 baneblade for my radical daemonhunters (mwahahaha)

and 1 for my future elysian drop troop army. YES a grav chuting baneblade (i will be using CPU fans in pringles tubes for the grav chutes )

i LOVE conversions 8)

Decapitated Eldar(of most kinds...be sure to snip off the wings on the Hawks though), and Decapitated Tau Fire Warriors.

These models look great, and I love how they generally look(pragmatic and ready to do some business). But I guess in the 41st century, the Mad Hatter took over behind the scenes and has been obsessed with fitting the Tau, Eldar and Marine armies(I think that includes all but maybe 2 or 3) with ugly/odd-fitting/impractical helmets.

1. Basilisk

2. Malcador (I now own one!!)

Simply two of the most gorgeous tanks I have ever seen in my life. I love them to insane degrees of insanity. In particular, the Basilisk with it's open gun platform has so much scope for amazing conversions, such as sweaty loaders, guys with binoculars and periscopes and pompous gunnery officers with compasses and large maps.
RIP KJ and Israfel. We will remember them.

For me its Lizardmen Saurus warriors/cavalry and Tau Crisis suits.

I love the concept art of crisis suits in full flight and try to replicate this whenever I get time to convert my battlesuits. I have about 30 saurus warriors and I'm converting another regiment of "aquatic" saurus swimming on swampy bases.

I used to play a red corsair (I think thats how its spelled...) army and I just LOVED converting regular space marines into chaotic demons ;D

Now I play tau, and I really enjoy converting XV8s.

Suits! Every one is a new project in itself.
Fire and Fortune go with you.

Sam, Nick and Robert are cast as a gay fashion designer, a horny soul brother, and an incompetent impressionist respectively. The three escape their mental asylum and sexually assault their way into a girl's school. The entire female cast comprises softcore porn models who don skimpy karate costumes and violently turn the tables on their tormentors.

When in deadly danger, When beset by doubt, Run in little circles, Wave your arms and shout.

Grey Knight Terminators. I bought and painted up one, just with the basic codex scheme... and now I'm playing Daemonhunters. =)

Gives me a chance to get and use other models I like: Sentinels, Kasrkin, Techpriests...
