Thanks..

it is more difficult to work in the winter for me.. My Mancave/Shop is outside and detatched from the main house. Super big space to work in however it takes a few hours just to heat the room up ( I don't heat it when I'm not using it ) before I can get to work.

Wisconson is a cold place in the winter. So usually I'll try to get some time in on the weekend where I can spend a good chunk of time out there working.

Tonight It's supposed to be below 0 without windchill. So I'll be bringing all my paints in so they don't freeze.

Then there is the Holidays where we eat turkey and pass out afterwords, content in our fullness. I should be able to get some time in with 4 days of Holiday!

Or how about you use something like a toolbox, beauty case, or even shoebox to put together a 'mini kit' with a dozen paints, some brushes, a piece of cloth and something to put the minis in?

I use small cardboard box for that, quick setup on the coffee table, quick cleanup. And She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed can just sit in the couch watching whatever she wants

Distract the cat using another cardboard box, or use tape to form a circle on the floor. Surprisingly effective.

All good. The workroom is a nice retreat from everything.

Finished building the SW;s for Yellowbeard. 5 Man Grey Hunters, 5 Bloodclaws, Wolf lord, 5 termies. 1 Stormwolf left to do.
I magnitized the weapons for the 5 man PA Sarge's so to give him some options. I'm hoping to finish the 2nd Stormwolf and get some paint on them this holiday weekend.Anyone play SW's? What color do you prime yours . Black, white or grey?

I prime my wolves black and then paint them grey but I do a real grey none of this blue/grey

I expect army painter do a decent Space Wolf type Grey, would make life easier if you didn't have to match to an existing force.

There not bigger than a Storm Raven thou. They have a different troop load out.. 16 SM's but no Dread.. AV 12. Lots of good firepower.

Been a fun build. Ironically not one of the figures I built are wearing a helmet. ( except the pilots of the flyers. ) This should give me a good number of figs to practice face painting. Going to try some different techniques to see what I like the best.

Good start on those Space Wolves. Watch out, cause you'll get hooked. I've been into them or 2 decades now.

You end up having a lot of no helmet guys, cause, um, well...Space Wolves. They have to smell stuff or something. A little thing I do for my nerdness, is that almost all of my guys, if they aren't wearing their helmets, I have them attached to their waists. Just in case of hull breaches or whatever. I think the Wolf Lord can be put on a 40mm. That's what they show him on on the box I think.

Thanks Ramos.. I'll get the paint unfrozen and back to work this weekend!

Moon...They are fun to build and the spru's come with a tremendious amount of options and bling. I didn't add anything extra as these are not for me. Luckly I already committed them to Yellowbeard otherwise I could see collecting a detachment. He can add extras if he wants. I'm just going to do a table top paintjob and call it good. I might come back and do a small SW ( thunderwolfs ect ) detachment later.

I'll think I'll stick with BA ( Lamenters) as my first choice. Hopefully they don't nerf'd in the upcoming codex too badly. ( hopefully out by years end! )

As for the Wolf lord.. I'll have to check the box set. I just assumed since he was just a PA SM that he'd go on a normal Inf. base. I'm not sure I'll base them as I don't know what YB want to do.

Maybe you and Ice plan on day tripping to Adepticon? Be nice to get in some Wardens games.. just saying!!!

We talked about at least doing a day for it. I like to get up and see my mom while I am up there if she is going to be in town.

The new boxset is looking good for the Blood Angels. Want to see them in yellow and checkers!

You get grav-guns.

Still would be good to get in a game of 40k in with just the Wardens and friends. I hope you guys can make it!

Bad part is that I don't need much anymore in the way of BA. I have some units that I haven't added to my options but unless there is some special character or amazing new figures I don't see me getting much. As for grav weponary I purchased some guns and pistols from FW HH line and started filling out more options for my Tac and Assaualt squads.

GW has the new BA codex up as a preorder as well as a new re-tooled tactical squad and Sang Priest.

SW update: Started on the black work on one of the storm wolfs. There is lots of details on these and it'll take a while. Painting the front engine cover red. Soon as i get both of these to a complete step I'll update with a picture. I'm trying to get playable by the 11th when Hopefully I have a game with YB set up!

Yeah Solar, we may have to try to plan some sort of low budget option to get there for a day. The tough part would be trying to find a place to play. The tables all seem to be used most of the time. I wonder if the new venue will have more room or perhaps an open gaming area.

Miss Dee, I think its a great idea.

It would seem that everyone has picked up how to paint red from Damo recently as I have to agree with Graven, that red is awesome.
