I still need to varnish those Avenging Eagles Marines so I can game with them, two things stopping that are 1) awaiting pay day so I can go get some matt varnish spray, and 2) the typically grim British weather.
While I've been waiting for that I've been chipping away at other things. Firstly getting some terrain pieces ready for painting. The thing with those Mantic Battlezones sets is, while they make some useful pieces, there are loads of gaps where connectors are meant to go. So I spent some time cutting plasticard rod and spare connectors to sort that out:
Just need the weather to improve so I can get them painted!
I've also been chipping away at that Librarian conversion. I've forgotten how much I dislike working with green stuff! Several attempts with the push molds, managed to get a few Librarian symbols I could work with. I just need to add a finishing touch (to represent his psychic powers manifesting), then he's done.
As well as him, as fluff-wise the Marines I've been painting are part of a campaign where the Legion of Taurus are the opposing force, I wanted to make a Sorceror to command their Kill Team. Ironically, I did consider making a Sorceror for that army back when I started work on it over 10 years ago, but in the end didn't get round to it..!
The body is the current Finecast Sorceror, which I picked up incomplete and in a bit of a state off eBay. The head is a Forgeworld Berzerker Terminator head, and the hand is from one of the Dark Vengeance Cultist champs. I need to finish filling out the right side so I can put his other arm on. Then add some flame effects in his left hand, and he's done! (Oh, the random Marine arm that's coming out of his base will be partially buried in rocks.)
I'll carry on with these, then hopefully get some good ebough weather to start priming/varnishing models.
Oh, wait, that's not all I've been working on...
Something a bit Malevolent is coming to this project..!
