As much as I wanted 2018 to be big on tabletop gaming, it feels instead like it's been more of a slow burn so far. There's been progress on many fronts, like painting and rules writing, and for many games, like Super Dungeon, Epic, Blood Bowl and 40K, but all of the progress has been slow. Speaking of 40K, 8th edition looks like it's finally going to get some attention now we're done with our Blood Bowl league, so hopefully that all goes well. Picking an army in 8th looks like a bit of a chore though, so I've created a new spreadsheet for my Marines to make it much easier.
Pretty much all year I've been itching to update some of the photos for my painted models. With the recent completion of my 40K Marines and 6mm Nurgle, I was able to take advantage of some free time to get snapping. The 6mm Khorne army isn't quite there yet, but is very close, with just the Daemon Engines to paint.
I was hoping that with the two light setup these images would be a lot better than they've turned out. I guess they are better than the old ones, but my camera is pretty shitty. It does weird things, and is not consistent with its colour, even in a consistent lighting situation. Stupid thing.
It was interesting to see all my 40K Marines set out together for the first time since I finished painting them, but I can't believe the army looks so small considering it's been about 25 years since I started to collect it. Still, at least they're all painted, which is far more than can be said for any of my other armies.
