Commissars, Master of Ordnance, & Vendettas oh my!!

Here are the  latest editions to my steadily growing Praetorian Army.

Emperor help the Guardsman who stumbles across this!
Summary Execution

Hmmm, Power Sword or Power Fist...?
Swinging sword so fast I couldn't focus!
There is nothing in that book but squiggles!!!!
That bomb should be landing right about.....
ZOOM (Well Putter)
I hope 2 is enough.

Well that is it for now.  The Vendettas are converted from these Scout Aeronefs.  I added the sponsons for the Lascannons.  They are textured plasticard with 90 degree angle card for trim.  The lascannons on sponsons are IG Heavy Weapons.  The Lascannons on front are from Razorbacks.  They come in at just under 1.5 inches shorter in width and length than actual vendettas.  All in all they work really good and I have had no complaints about them.  I think they really add flavor to the army.  I will eventually put some sort of hand rail around the deck (any suggestions?)

Last but not least, my flak cannons came in today.  I will assemble them and give a WIP picture tomorrow.  Stay motivated.

Excellent Photos from Col. Winterborne

Just a little bump for a fellow Praetorian player.  For any of the folks who follow me but not the other great Praetorian Commanders out there, check out these photos.  They contain two Praetorian forces on a training exercise.  Definitely inspired me to get a BatRep or two in.  Here is the link:

Group Photos

As promised, here are a few group shots of everything I have painted so far.  I have only included a few of the tanks for aesthetics.  If anyone is interested I can do a group photo of them as well.
The whole lot of 'em
Can you see the snipers?
Eye level of the line
Overhead looks cool I think.
I hope you enjoy them.  In other news, my Vendetta conversion models came in.  They are assembled and primed.  I am waiting for them to be done before revealing them.  If they turn out as good as I think they are, maybe this will set the standard for Praetorian Vendettas (like Gravis Pattern Heavy Bolters).  Also, I have 4 Commissars and my Master of Ordnance painted.  They are awaiting wash and clear coat.  I will complete them when I complete the Vendettas. 

Stay Motivated!!

Tournament Help

OK I am looking for some serious help now.  I am planning on starting more competitive play.  There is a tournament at my local game store next week and I don't even know where to begin.  I normally play friendly games with themed army lists.  I don't expect to win, but I want to make a good showing.  Would anyone out there mind throwing a good 1999+1 list my way to see what I can do.  My only limitation at this time is that I have no vendettas.  I may have my kits delivered this week.  If so I plan to use them (2).  Please provide lists if you have them.  If worse comes to worse I will just play a fun list and hope for best painted.  I have had a lot of compliments on my army since no one there has actually seen a full Praetorian army.  Any help is good.  Thanks.
