Hobby update! 5/12/16 - Bloodbowl, III Legion and Commission work
You just knew I couldn't resist didn't you! Any of you who read last week's post just knew that I wouldn't be able to resist showing you the stuff I'm working on, even though I said I wouldn't!
Well, let's deal with the first things first - This week I cleaned up the human and orc team models I picked up with the Bloodbowl game last week. Neither of these teams is of a composition I'd be inclined to use straight out of the box, so I'm really hoping that GW will release boost packs for the teams fairly soon to allow me to build up the extra players I want to get. It may be a bit of a pipe dream, but I'd love to be able to keep up with the new teams as they are released, I'm already very tempted to get hold of the Skaven despite having a black scorpion skaven team in my collection.
I have to say these models are seriously impressive, it's true that there are only six individual sculpts in the box, but that's almost always been the case with bloodbowl teams anyway, and a few little tweaks here and there will ensure they look suitably different.
Hopefully these guys will get some basecoat on them this week ready for colours before too long.
Next up then, some of you may recall that a while back I sent out the call for some willing volunteers to help me judge my worth as a commission painter. I'm pleased (and incredibly flattered) to say that the first person out of the blocks to request my services was an old friend, NafNaf from objective secured, and he asked me to help him with his space wolf army. Now aside from the fact that NafNaf is an incredible painter and modeller himself and so there is quite a bit of pressure on me to not let him down, I've begun work on a marine squad and a Rhino. I've not been able to devote too much time to it just yet, but here's where I've got to so far.
And finally, the pics I'm sure you've all been waiting for (hur hur), the Emperor's Children.
I said I might not post up a hobby update until these guys were more finished, but I just couldn't resist.
So there you go, comments and question are welcomed as always, and please contact me if you have anything you'd like me to paint for you!
Till next time,
