10th March 2011: Must. Keep. Painting.
After many, many, many, many, many years, my favourite Blood Bowl team the Orcs are getting some attention. Also, the Tzeentch Titan is well on the way, and am planning to use transfers for a wild change. Many things sit in the stripping pot, including 40K Eldar and Marines, and Epic Chaos.
Must. Keep. Painting.
The painting and stripping continues
9th March 2011: Pimp That Pred
A few years ago got an old Predator off eBay that was in a right state, which has spent the years since in the loft. Recently ferreted it out, ripped off its weapons and have worked on it as an alternate base Rhino for my Whirlwind, so I can use my actual Whirlwind as a Rhino or Razorback.
Also, a bit of talk going on recently about playing some Epic, so have dragged the last section of my Epic Chaos army out of the loft and will look to finish that as well.
Pred to Whirlwind
15th February 2011: Reinforcements
Another massive order recently has given me a whole lot more to do. Like I didn't have enough to do already. Though I thought myself very good for resisting the urge to start both Necron and Dark Eldar armies.
Reinforcements include another Wave Serpent and more Fire Dragons for my Eldar, 4 more tanks for my Guard, and a Redeemer for ye olde Marines. I've also got hold of enough bits so I have the option of running my Marines as a Blood Angel army, though without the stupid ass over the top shite that they can have.
On the painting side I've been trying my ass off. Finished the Trygon, finished the Epic Nurgle, finished the Dreadnought, finished the sky blue Banshee. Am now pressing ahead with the red Banshee, trying out a new dark blue paint from Vallejo on my Tau Commander (I've always used an old GW paint called Marine Dark Blue but am now totally out) but am not totally happy with it. I've also bought the Lelith model just to paint cuz it's so cool, but have had to take her off that stupid ass scenic base.
Stuff in the works
23rd January 2011: Finish Him
Not a huge lot of gaming, modelling or painting has happened over the last few months as we were once again gripped by WoW fever. That's dying down now though, and I've moved on with a few little bits 'n' bobs. I've painted my old Yarrick model, sprayed all my Tau, been doing the last bits of painting on my High Elf Blood Bowl team and their star player, and stuck together the last few epic Andrayada infantry, Space Marine Scouts and Chaos Beast Riders.
2010 was a very slow year for painting. Apart from my High Elf Blood Bowl team and a couple of 40K characters I finished very little. 2011 must not be so slow. A couple of weeks ago I decided to paint another section of my Epic Chaos army and went for the rotting minions of Nurgle. In my Epic Chaos army the Nurgle contingent contains some heavy hitting Titans and big units of weak troops to absorb damage. I've finished the four war machines, and I've got some troops well on the way.
Also, am gonna try and properly finish the many 40K things that I've started but put to one side, starting with the Trygon.
It's green and it's mean. I think I'll call it Bruce.
