Looking at the sodden mess that was supposed to be my Dreadball 2 rulebook and would have been if royal mail hadn't decided that leaving a cardboard package outside my house 5 days ago counted as delivery. It's rained a lot in 5 days.

Yesterday put in red coat for blood angels(magnetized weapons, some weapons not in photo but in total 10 plasma, 10 melta and 9 flamer. Need to get one more somewhere), put wash to receccess of sons of horus, did quickly the banners and cloaks for sons of horus. Alas I should have done those first as now I need to redo the green a bit to touch up where airbrush hit.

Another case of "they don't make this vehicle in the scale I want, so I guess I'll have to make it myself". I'm finishing up a build of a 1/50th scale Ukrainian BTR-4 for my Spetsnaz.

Played kingslayer on AoS. My Overlords versus Stormcast. I scored 74 wounds versus 57. However, because I lost my general, it was doubled to 114, so I lost. Kicking myself for letting him die but in truth I blame the dice. It’s a poor excuse I know but really, how do I keep rolling 1s 75% of the time? I score 9 hits and they’re wounding on 3+ but I roll seven 1s? And something like this happens 4 times? Boo.

Primed 10 Tactical Marines and 5 intercessors for my Salamanders. I sprayed for so long that I swear I'm a little high right now. ()

I also have to say that Primaris Marines don't take spray primer as readily as regular ones do. I think it has to do with all the raises ridges.

I played a game last night and accidentally knocked over a couple models. *sigh* I'll be running repairs tonight.

I did pick up one of those impulse packs of three reviers. Might put them together.

Got a lot done on the Knight yesterday, continuing to work on it today. Priority one is finishing the shoulder pads - just a few edge highlights and it'll be ready to glue on. Still have most of the arms and the Icarus Autocannon to do - going to be trying to finish everything this weekend.

Assembled a Chaos Predator, reasonably clean of spikes though as my Thousand Sons outcasts don't go overboard on blingy bits.

Main guns magnetised, sponsons swappable with side doors, also magnetised - sponson weapons assembled, waiting a bit of plain plastic tomorrow to plate the top to also magnetise them.

Thinking the sponsons and doors though may need a second magnet, gluing to the one on the hull as a sort of magnetically active spacer

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away...

Reorganised my X-Wing Miniatures - sorted all the counters out into new storage trays and moved the smaller ships into a second tray. Then had the exciting task of putting all the pilot and smaller upgrade cards into card binders I bought from Amazon and only cost me £3.00 (as I had some vouchers to spend :thumbsup). Really nice quality binders... Ultimate Guard Mini American 9-Pocket FlexXfolio & Ultra-Pro 4-Pocket Pro Binder - Black

Now to organise a few games....

Finished assembling the predator, trip to FLGS resulted in some plastic card, my own stock is, as with so much around here "in a box" so was easier to to get more..

Result: an extension on the turret side to hold the havoc launchers magnetic mounting. also sorted the sponson weapons mounts.

Built another Custodis model as well


Took my CSM out for a day trip against some guardsmen, managed to loose all but a sorcerer, lord and 12 cultists lurking in a bastion.

Did however win on VP, despite managing to kill a handful of guardsmen only, plus putting a couple of wounds on a few of the many tanks they faced...

I've had a lot of stuff on the back-burner for awhile for numerous reasons, gave myself a kick up the backside and did some work on my two squads of Mk. III Power Armour Marines for my Iron Warriors.
Finished on them for the day and just debating the best approach for the hazard stripes tomorrow, whether or not I should attempt the logo free hand (not done any free hand before) and finally trying
to see how they denote the squad for HH Iron Warriors.

All good fun, the most important thing is I can say I've actually made some progress on it.

Apostles of Contagion (40K) - 1750 Points
Iron Warriors (30K/40K) - In progress
Farsight Enclaves (40K) - Planned

352. Infanteriedivision (FoW) - 3000 points

Primed containers repurposed as Necromunda buildings.
Also primed and dry brushed the loot crates and door control panels from the Necromunda starter set. Just need to paint some buttons, guns, bullets and grenades and those will all be done.

That will leave me with exactly 4 miniatures (Pathfinder Deep Cuts) left to paint.
