Update, small but still...

My GF's gone to Adelaide for 2 months, so that leaves me with lots of time to game and hobby(I miss her though). Been real busy the last couple a weeks, hence the lack of updates on my blog.

Today I test painted my Chosen Marine Champion. Wanted to test out a few schemes for my army before I go ahead and paint the lot. As always I'm not happy with him after being dipped, but if it's anything like the Termies, then it should turn out fine after a coat of matt spray.

Chosen Champion

My Death Guards and Oblits are being primed white as we speak and more minis are being assembled. Sad though, I can't make it for Legio''s Tournament in November due to work. SIGH!

Also completed are my bases. Basecoat Chaos Black, Drybrush with Vallejo Cold Grey and Flock from GF9 Marsh Blend.

Chaos Lord and Sorceror base

Biker bases all set and done.
Notice there are 8 bike bases. 1 Will be for my alternative Chaos Lord/Sorcerer.

Anyhow I can't wait for Friday as Khairul has promised me a game with his Saim Hann army.
So far I've played 3 games. 2 lost and a draw, not too bad I would say. Still there's time for me to learn and improve.

Till next time.

Death Guard Terminators.

Progress on the Common Cold Elite.
Death Guard Terminators are table top ready. Primed, based, dipped and matt coated. base is done and marsh flock added for the gloomy Nurgly theme. In total they took about 6 hours to complete.

They're not the best looking guys around but boy do they look great to me. This is a real achievement for me and I can't wait to work on my next squad :)

Also on the plate this week are these bases. This are my version of scenic bases.
Take 1 part PVA GLUE and 2 part Hamster bath sand (Non-scented).
Mix well and apply paste to your hearts desire.

They dry to a solid texture and can be painted, sanded and cut down to size. You can even add sand to the mixture for more texture.

So that's it. I'll try to churn out more minis and hopefully get everything done before the league ends.

Thanks for dropping by and happy gaming.
