Rahn with Hyperion battle report

This past Thursday, I finally got a chance to play with the Hyperion during the Dark Secrets league.  I chose to go with Rahn since he his the caster I am most familiar with since I was trying out the Hyperion.

Hyperion WIP continued

I’ve started work on the white armor of my Hyperion.  It’s quite a bit of work to get it smooth but I think it’s looking nice.  I am almost done with one shoulder so I took some pictures of each one so you can see the difference.

Retribution Hyperion test lists

I’m going to try to get some games in tonight with my Hyperion.  I may be taking them to The Warstore Weekend tournaments.  The casters I think I’d like to take are of course Rahn and also Vyros.  I may also want to try Ossyan as well.

I’m going to prepare 35 and 50 point lists for each so I have options depending on what people want to play.

Hyperion built, with pics

I built my Hyperion acquired from Gencon last week and I’ve finally gotten around to posting pictures.

If you look at the front picture, you will see 6 little ovals behind his head.  There were some little antennae that were supposed to go there.  I was missing one and I was leery of putting them on anyway.  The last time I questioned whether I should put something like that on was when building the Deathjack and Seether with their spikes.  I put them on and I regretted it as they kept breaking off and eventually got lost, so I left them off here.

I’ll post pictures as I get it painted.  I’m experimenting with adding washes on my models with an airbrush based on an article in an old White Dwarf I remember.  Depending on how that goes, I will figure out how I want to paint this bad boy.

Hyperion GO!

The great and powerful Geoff Engelstein of The Dice Tower, Ludology, The Ares Project and Space Cadets fame, was kind enough to procure a Hyperion for me from GenCon.  Since it looks like it won’t be coming out until October, I was all about getting one early.

I was able to get it assembled this week.  It was pretty easy to get done and it looks great.  I will be posting pictures soon.

I’m pretty excited to get in a game with him.  Hopefully I will be able to tomorrow with the NJSOBs.  All I have to do is decide which caster to try first.
