So I've mostly been lurking on the forums with the odd post on others work here and there. However That doesn't mean I've done nothing hobby wise for the last 3 months. I actually finished the assignment with a few hours to spare which will be only the second time on this distance learn course where I haven't needed an extension.
After that I wanted to chill a bit and so grabbed the paintbrush and in the run up to Christmas spent more time finishing my part done Necron warriors and Scarabs.
I now have 3 full units of scarabs and even managed a game where some shenanigans using them to block a space wolf charge lead to a solid victory.
Thanks to the latest chapter approved I also needed to fill out my force a little bit, 2 proxy Immortals and a proxy Spyder and the 4 unfinished warrior leg on bases allowed me to play the game a 1k game.
Now it was a really fun game and the Spyder did really well so I let myself follow the hobby butterfly and my desk soon looked like this.
Also out of focus in the background are the hero models for the D&D game I started at the beginning of the year along with a bunch of scratch built Blights which have also eaten into my hobby time.
The Spyder was really nice to paint and came along nice and quickly
and has since been finished ready for a decorative base along with fully finishing the warriors though they all got packed out of the way before photos.
With the Spyder done I just need to get a pair of immortals assembled and painted up, but why only do two when they come in boxes of five?
Currently my desk looks a bit like this,
When I grabbed the sprues out of the loft I got all of them out and took a bit of time to also assemble a unit of deathmarks. This weekend I managed to get those sprayed and the Immortals have had a couple more layers completed.
Tonight I'm heading back into the loft for a batch of models. Firstly I'm going to grab an Overlord to round out to 1250 points. At the same time I'm going to grab the Triarch Stalker and Praetorians so that I can get to a fully painted 1500 points.
I'm also going to grab the land raider I brought and never finished nearly 20 years ago, my unit of Khornate possessed and an old semi daemonic Khorate lord. Along with the blood warriors from the old AOS starter box, then it'll be time to prep for the ETL which will hopefully give me the land raider as a good trial run for the call of chaos....
I also have another assignment due and a load of lectures to watch and paint/sculpt along too so time to get busy so wish me luck.
