|Oh and i bought the chapel off ebay too|
so what have i been up to in this long absence of time?
many things, many things. I got a new job pretty much after i uploaded the last post. And so that has sucked up a lot of my time, its pretty much full on working with computers. So i am enjoying myself!
I have also gotten back into a lots of computer games, the steam christmas sale robbing me both of money and time.
First off, the dark angels.... actually no, before that... the new battle mat i now own and have painted. Its a zuzzy wounded city terra flex gaming mat, and despite how long it took for the thing to arrive, and the lack of communication from the seller, its a wonderful item.
it took me most of my dark colored paints and the leftover compressed air cans i misguidedly bought from GW to get a decent colour onto it.
And i am quite happy with the results. Its visible in all the pictures i am posting today so you will be able to make your own judgement about it.
i have had this meagre force painted and gathering dust on my shelves for over a year now, and while i still have a lot more models unassembled and half primed sitting in boxes, i dont really feel the need to rush my way through them.
|don't drop the bolt pistols! you need those!|
At the very least the new codex allows me to field them with that minimum troops choice, plasma cannon included!
The rest of the footsloggers sitting in a box are also wearing robes. I find that the release of the veteran/upgrade pack for dark angels really appealed to me, to have a full army with robes. I now regret that decision in terms of painting as the cream coloured robes of the dark angels are a
Also i am so glad i waited for finecast for sammuel. He would of been way to heavy in metal to be of any use.
The plasma cannon on this one does have a bubble, but thankfully its hidden underneath the nose.
Now if only someone would make a codex that allows apothecary's to have storm shields....
And i will have them painted in the pre-heresy scheme of the dark angels, black with a red stripe
I also still prefer my version of obyron and nemesor, to those from GW, but i might still buy them to see if the paint scheme takes to them
I also have parts for more cryptek's and regular lords to connect up and create.
I am unsure with 6th edition, as to whether to finish the rhino's as it looks more and more likely that i would never take them.
Just denying the charge from disembarking is a
So there we go, that's what is done. What looks good, and a few thoughts.
I still have many things in storage, that if i had the time and motivation (or money to pay someone to do), would be just plain awesome to get done. A full Spyrer group with matriarch and patriarch, most of the gorkamorka models, and i also went on a little ebay spending spree, to obtain all the retro cardboard buildings and scenery for 40k such as the generator from storm of vengance.
Anyway, thats all for a while. Who knows when i will next post some interesting tidbits from my life
