|I will remind you again that this is representative of my conversion/painting skills|
Just a super-quick post to update on my progress with all the new acquisitions, and I can tell you that my league starts in mid-February, but I'm doing well enough here that I may actually be able to play my first game before then. I know I haven't been keeping up with my posting, but in my defense, you don't want to hear about me working or see pictures of grey plastic models :)
Also I finally figured out what I'm going to do about Tervigon conversions!
But first, an update of where I'm at:
What I've got done:
I've assembled my Hive Guard and Zoanthropes, but haven't painted anything -- in fact, the last bit of painting I did was the Trygon 'lo these many moons ago.
I've assembled one of my two boxes of Gargoyles, with the other to follow suit soon. I'm trying to decide on whether it's worth the effort to introduce another colour for the wings on them, we'll see.
I've assembled all the Genestealers I need for my 1500 point League list, but still need to paint two of them and acquire/convert a Broodlord -- ANY suggestions for conversion are welcome.
I've also put together what I'll be using as a Tervigon. I bought Green Stuff, but haven't used it yet, and frankly I'm happy with just what I got out of the Carnifex box plus a large oval base for a Terv, but I have a clever trick up my sleeve.
Look forward to a series of posts on how to make the world's laziest - yet decent looking! - Tervigon conversion from your friends at Men With Toy Soldiers.
What's missing from the list:
Aside from painting everything, which just plain isn't going to happen by the start of the league in mid-Feb, I have a few things to do:
I still need to assemble a box of Gargoyles. Oh! Despite my skepticism, I'll be damned if Mercer wasn't right! They CAN give cover to a Hive Tyrant!
I have 13 Termagants to assemble, since I want all 28 ready for games (10 + 18 for the Terv spawning), although 4 of them have a 'higher purpose' that you will learn of shortly.
I need to assemble another Trygon, and I'd love to get him painted up in time, but that's a lofty goal.
|A small piece of my soul was consumed to bring you this one, and I don't have much soul to spare.|
Here's what I have planned for the next few days:
1) I'm going to share with you how to make a neat, easy Tervigon that will be a little bit different.
2) I'm going to put up The Great Painting Challenge, where everyone can help me set goals for painting by the time my league starts, and we can all discuss an appropriate reward/punishment scheme for how well I do based on that.
