Full Battle Company of Black Sky Chapter, 3rd Company Night Death
To be added, working on at the moment
4 Drop pods
1 Land Raider (Terminus Ultra)
I really do hate building drop pods. The paint and stuff isn’t the bad part, it is getting the damn things to work right, as in doors open and close fully. I swore i would never build any more of them, oh well, I need them

Merry New Year!
OK, thats done, here is the news.
Apocalypse game- Rescheduled (again) I think the game is being over thought just a bit. I am not placing responsibility for all of the delays on anyone but me, after all it was my idea, planning and all. It has just gotten a little out of control. It isn’t that the game has gotten too large, I am looking forward to a tens of thousand Apoc game. It is just I think it is being over thought. But I think it would be better to just strip it down and make it simpler, for the players and for the planning.
Black Sky Chapter- I am finally getting the background of the chapter worked out. The original plan was to have it related in someway to Tyranids. But I put that idea aside as being too much. So it has moved to Plan B. And if you know me, my Plan B’s are either really good or extraordinarily bad, there doesn’t seem to be a middle ground. But the Readers Digest version is this.
-The home world of the Chapter was destroyed
-A series of disasters wiped out over half of the Companies as well as most of the space fleet.
-With no Chapter Master and the ranking Marine being the 3rd Company Captain he has taken steps to ensure the survival of Black Sky. Necessary include setting up bases to resupply and gain recruits. Other less mundane steps are to reorganize the composition of Companies. But the biggest change is an alliance which could lead to the Chapter being declared renegade.
More to come!!
Had a little game today at HT against Erik Angel playing his new Orks.
I had my Captain, two 10 man Tactical squads and a razorback, he had a crap load of Gretchin, four Commandos, a Deff Dread, Big Mek with a Shokk attack gun and three Deffkoptas.
That damn Shokk gun took out two Marines from 2nd Squad on the very first shot. The Shokk gun is a little unpredictable even before the scatter dice are thrown and he wound up taking out more Gretchins than Marines!
It was a fun relaxed game, and my Marines wound up wiping out every Gretchin. Eric did forget to run them for the first two turns. Had they run they would have been in assault before the 3rd turn and much less depleted.
I did lose half of 2nd Squad and one Marine from 1st Squad and Captain Mara had two wounds.
Good game Erik, look forward to another round soon!

Here is 3rd Company
I have a few small additions to be made. Some Tac Marines with special weapons, five more Tac Marines to round out the 3rd ten man squad.
Now I will be going back and doing touch ups on some of the early work. I admit I did kind of skimp here and there on some. One problem that I am going to have to work on is a part that somehow fell off the land raider. It is one of the parts that gets installed from the inside and I have no idea how Im going to fix it.
But, over all I am pretty happy with the army.
