I carved out some time last night to paint, and was surprised how much I got done. I think my productivity was increased by the fact that I wasn’t watching a show, but instead listening to Jim Butcher’s Q & A at a recent book signing – ie, something I didn’t have to watch to understand and fully enjoy.
Wow, it’s been a week since I last posted! I feel terrible! I’ve been swamped with stuff this past week, so at least I have a good
excuse reason. We had to get the apartment ready for visitors! That took a while since we have way too much shit. Once the unpacking and sorting was done, we had visitors. Since the office (computers and hobby area) is also the spare room, I didn’t have any time to work on anything. Bad for the blog, good for my sanity.
- Finish painting Cygnar Battlebox
- Skorne Army painted up to 50 pts
- Gatorman conversions (a commission currently in the works)
- Retribution Conversions
- More trainboats and flying saucers (Yay Naval games!)
- Brass Rodding (Iron Fang Pikeman style)
- Press Molding (with Instant Mold)
- Jeweler’s Saw Basics
- … your suggestions?
Firstly, Burb1996 had his prize drawing. Since Burb got his 40 followers in less than 48 hours, he’s giving away an Extreme Scuplt! He cut out everyone’s name, put them in a hat and had his son pick out a name. The little dude’s my new best friend, because he pulled my name out of the hat!
Oh, and what do you think of the addition of some Naval Camouflage?
And now… the results of last time’s dilema: What faction to commit to?
Overwhelmingly, you all wanted to see Skorne! Of the six of you that posted your thoughts, five wanted Skorne. Good enough for me! Skorne it is.
I was able to get primer on my Skorne Battle Box, a Cyclops Brute and Razorworm. That gives me a nice 15 pt Tooth and Claw list to learn with:
Master Tormentor Morghoul (*7pts)
* Cyclops Brute (5pts)
* Cyclops Savage (5pts)
* Razorworm (4pts)
* Titan Gladiator (8pts)
I also picked up Xerxis last week at the LGS, so I’ll need to assemble him.
I haven’t found a 35pt list I’m happy with, so I’m open to suggestions. I like the idea of a brick, but I also think a combined forces type army could be fun. Show me some lists!
I’d post more, but I kinda want to get painting! I’ll have pictures of some Skorne next time, I promise!
So I didn’t have pictures last time, but I sure do now! First, I have a test model for my Blazing Sun TRAINBOATS!
What do you think? There isn’t much in the way of highlights, but I kind of like that. It feels more industrial, which fits a Dystopian future.
I also was able to get quite a bit of Retribution stuff done.
Firstly, because I’m so crazy for shields, a Griffon!
And here’s the Discordia / Hydra / Manticore
I haven’t yet found out how to magnetize the chest piece for Discordia. Perhaps I’ll just glue it on? Thoughts?
Oh, here’s an eleventh picture. Yeah. Lots of pictures to make up for last time!
