Pretty much finished Greyfax, I might do a little more work on her hat but she's about done. I'll get around to basing her at some point, i quietly hold a small spark of hope for a codex and a plastic release, but if i'm going to have to rebase my whole army anyway then i'm as well waiting a little while.
Now that I've more or less finished my 'production-procrastination' I should really get on with tackling the growing hobby back log... A few weeks ago I was given 6 melta girls, one is GW original, the other 5 are chinese. I wouldn't go out of my way to procure chinese girls myself but as i was gifted them i have decided to give them a good home, the casts aren't too bad.. some recasting artifacts here and there, mainly on the Aquila shoulder and to of them are missing half a foot, otherwise quite reasonable. I should really strip them down and repaint from scratch, but it's a lot of effort to go to and i'm not sure how the resin would react to being stripped. I think i'd rather have them look 'ok' from the table top than run the risk of melting them into a puddle of goop.
As of writing this my hobby backlog is:
6 Melta girls (as mentioned above)
3 rhino hulls, half painted.
5 repressor conversions, top plates and dozer blades. Needing some edge highlighting and some other bits and bobs. (these things have been a total pain in the ass from the moment they were printed)
I need to get my hands on more SM Rhino style storm bolters, and suitable heavy flamers. i had originally tried to one of the heavy flamers from the Immo sprue, needless to say it didn't work out. I just couldn't get both sides of the 2 part mold to line up properly. So it's looking like i'm going to have to scavenge for bits.
Add to this my local GW was having a birthday bash as they were turning 29 (i think) so I popped along to put in an direct order to get some raffle tickets, didn't win anything. ;( But I did get a few freebies from having an order of a certain value. A bag and a few art cards, i think, i'm not entirely sure as they had none in store and had to order them for everyone. I'll post pics of that stuff when i get it.
My actual order though, a unit of repentia, a command squad, some Heavy bolter girls, a simulacrum and a priest. I'm REALLY looking forward to the painting Hospitaller and the Repentia to a slightly lesser extent.All that skin tone is going to be a challenge considering how much i feel i struggle with even doing faces. That Dialogus though... ...Shudder.
