Its been that long...?


Didn't realise how long it has been since I last posted...
I feel rather ashamed about this...

Last few months have seen minimal hobby work done, due to purchasing a new computer and getting all that sorted out, as well as a long and tedious work lift that kinda saps out the will to be creative...

Yet, I do have some things to report on the hobby front!
I have made progress production wise, and also made some decisions about how I will be approaching my hobby work for now.
Though I am lacking pictures at this point in time...

1. The half-track has been sidelined atm, as I really should finish the list I have written up before I start adding extras to it...
Thus I have started converting the following:
- HQ squad
- Sly Marbo
- 2 squads for the transports
- 2nd heavy weapons squad
- 2nd transport
Almost finished, just requiring minor details and basing include:
- 2nd squad on foot
- Platoon command squad
- 1st heavy weapons squad
Everything else Bloodpact wise is on the sidelines til those are completed, so i can get the first 1k list done and get them on the table before i branch out to the extra 850pts..

2. The Dark Elves though only mentioned in passing months and months back are slowly taking shape after months of list writing and re-writing.
So far I believe I have about 750 or so points worth assembled, perhaps more, and a paint scheme decided on, and started to paint them up.
So far the following are assembled/started painting:
- Master on foot
- 9 Spearmen retinue
- 15 Corsairs
- 5 Dark Riders
- 5 Shades
- Assassin
Yet to be started include:
- Additional 10 Spearmen
- 15 Corsairs
- Lord on Cold One
- 9 Cold Ones retinue
- 10 Cold Ones
- 5 Shades
- 2 Reaper Bolt Throwers
- Sorceress
Should prove an effective force when used right, and once all painted up will hopefully look stunning on the table top.

3. Tyranids have been sidelined near indefinitely.
I have yet to actually do any work on the actual army since the coming of the current codex, the only things that have been done to the army have been due to entering modeling/painting comps at the local GW and nothing more.
Once I have finished what I have on the table atm, then I will be resurrecting them.

4. Easterlings have joined the Tyranids on the sideline.
Hearts just not there atm, and waiting for some finecast captains to hopefully come out, as after looking at what I have to do to make my current white metal captains look decent... I may as well just use them as paper weights the quality of the miniatures is that poor.

Thats about all I have in the way of updates atm, not much considering the time between last post and now, but I am trying!

Til next time all
