TITH, well actually yesterday, I got a strike force Ultima box set for €145 from a flgs.

It involved a lot of haggling along the lines of:
It's been there a couple of years
nobody's going to buy it now that Primaris are out
we all know regular marines are finished

Score.

Today in the hobby I laid out the first post of a new thread musing about what sisters of battle plastics could look like in regard to the Intercessors and Hellblasters' kitbash-unfriendly, monopose-that's-not-saying-its-name sprues in my head as I walked to the mall... and realized all my wonderings were answered by the sisters of silence's own sprues.

TITH I sold some grey plastic that I don't see myself using anytime soon. I sold it for a profit and will use the funds to focus on specialist games. Trimming off the fat of my collection so I can enjoy more.

Ten minutes ago in the hobby I decided to work on making a World Eaters (Shadow Crusade?) version of Tangled's I've got a dream song.

 

Angron: What about you?

Erebus: I'm sorry, me?

Delvarus: What's your dream?

Erebus: No, no, no, Sorry boys, I don't sing.

*suddenly chainaxes*

I don't have a problem. The only thing I lack is any kind of regret.

 

I HAVE NONE OF THEM.

TITH I took stock of what I have left the the Calth box to see what I need to actually make the UM and WB factions. I originally bought the box to get into 40k, now that I want to scale down I want to build up the actual game.

TITHI created a scene with my minis without even noticing. After being done painting, I start putting everything back in place when I notice at some point this had happened:

Today in the hobby I used my tools to create and attach two grippers to the CCW of my Ironclad Dreadnought. Bought it on e-bay and the CCW only had two grippers. I cut parts from 6 different bits from my bits box and glued them together. It looks ok on the CCW and now it has 4 grippers.

TitH I got out all my models, inventoried the lot, figured out how much touch up painting I needed to do, and took a nice group photo of each. Refurbishing them all was my project for the past year and I'm quite pleased, although there is still work to be done.

A few days ago in the hobby, I fished out the storage unit (for lack of a better word) that's been gathering dust under my bed since before I joined this site, and decided to see just what has been sitting in it since I last opened it.

 

There were sprues, bits, models... It was like going through Ali Baba's cave, except without forty unwashed thieves out to shank me.

Just now in the hobby I had a flash of inspiration for a Recon Marine/Scout conversion that could prove a tad expensive in the long run... but it's a great idea and I have to follow through with it.

Greetings

Two weeks, two games, but a bit remiss on the writing front because of other games and work stuff. Will hopefully update at the weekend...

Today in the hobby I decided to take a break. Sometimes conversions just don't wanna come, and after four days of messing with the Invictarus Suzerain bodies to little/no avail, it's best to take a few days away from the hobby desk, I think.
