Hobby update week 12 - Is it purple, or is it blue?



Greetings all, another big gap since my last post, I think I'm going to have to accept that I won't be able to post as often as I used to, with a more responsible job and more time commuting to and from work.


Still, I'm getting plenty of painting done, which is a good thing! My last update showed off my centurion devastators, and there's plenty more been finished since then!


Dusk Knights


First up therefore is my terminator librarian - his own scheme is now complete, I just need to finish his base (I've got a few bases still to do actually so will probably blitz them all in one go).







Then just a quick look ahead, this is the full extent of what I've still got to build/paint for the dusk knights, including 17 scouts, a landspeeder, 5 scout bikes, 8 marine bikes, 7 terminators, 15 assault marines, a couple of captains and 7 veterans.






Swords of Dawn


Thanks to Squaduary getting a big chunk of the Swords of Dawn completed, I figured it was time to get the rest done too in the hopes that I could get some cash together to progress the army with new additions. First up was the ancient.









I'm not entirely happy with the sword design in the centre but it'll have to do for now as it's as good as I can manage at the moment.


Then on to the Lieutenants who were the last two models needing to be painted.








I'm really pleased with the scheme for these guys and if at some point in the future GW do switch to a wholly primaris range for the marines and stop supporting the older style models, I will be quite happy to put these guys out on the tabletop!


Here's the whole collection as it stands at the moment. Next up on my list for purchases is a repulsor and some aggressors, plus more intercessors, hellblasters and reivers.






That's me done for now, hope to have something more for you soon!


Till next time,
TBE

Power levels vs points - A Burning Eye View


Greetings all, things are settling down a little bit with the new job now, though I’m still unnervingly short of hobby time in the evenings due to needing to get up early (any chance that those scientists among you could crack on and get that Catalepsean Node invention please?) Next up on my list of topics to write about therefore is the comparison between choosing an army by the power level method, and using the more traditional points system.

Hobby update week 10 - Devastation


Greetings all! Another week goes by and another week without a game (insert sad face here). I did manage to get some decent painting progress done this week though, which was nice!

Hobby update week 9 - Clad in iron


Greetings all, welcome to my latest glimpse into my hobby world. This week's a fairly quiet one I'm afraid, mainly because I don't want to repeat all the pics from Squaduary that I posted last week.
