@largeblastmarker Any chance of convincing one of your players to co-dm and help you manage rolling and keeping track of stuff? Dropping a player and doubling up your personal resources may be the trick. It even brings up possibilities like splitting the party into two groups to attack a problem (say, a castle/fortress) from two angles, or to have some party members get captured and try to break out without interrupting the overall flow of the game (and then the party meets up for a huge epic clash with the boss!). Its possible to get a couple of part-time co-DMs too, where their characters may have convenient backgrounds explaining occasional absences... just so one guy isn't talked into never playing. Just some thoughts

On topic: I wanna get 16 corporation zombie marines done this month, so today I wanna finish my 3 weapon teams, and or get started on building the last 10 zombie marines.

I'm about to clear coat my zombie weapon teams and drop my to do or die list down to 10/51 models. They'll promptly show up on my p&m blog. With any luck, I'll assemble a few of those last 10.

Spent the weekend watching Numb3rs and Castle, reading Dakka and the PP forums, and getting some paint on some PP figures (some of whom appear in my P&M blog), as well as sorting out one of my sofas that was covered in gaming stuff. Now have two tables that need further sorting, but that's a minor issue.

I began conversion work on a DV Tac squad. Running them as Wolves, so...

-Magnetized one Banner to a Bolter Marine so it can be taken if required.
-Replaced the Sergeant's head with a helmet, magnetized his left hand with a power sword or plasma pistol, replaced his right pistol with a boltgun, and shaved off a bunch of iconography.
-Built one Plasma gunner to replace the cannon, which found a home in my devastator company.
-Picked out miscellaneous wolfy bits to use on the boring bolter-equipped marines.

Also primed 8-9 models...

Built a Mycetic Spore from scratch, going to paint that tomorrow probably.

I'm cleaning up an Avenger Strike Fighter I picked up in a trade a little while back and prepping it for assembly. This is my first time to work with FW resin and there is a very strong smell from the particulates that come off while filing. I had read about people saying that FW resin was dangerous if breathed in, and I think I actually believe it now. I'll be covering my face and running a fan when I get back at it tonight.

I'm really happy with the model though, and it will serve as the centerpiece for a Cadian allied force I'm putting together for my Grey Knights.

The problem with the 'vote with your dollar' response is that it doesn't take into account why we're not buying the product. I want to enjoy 40k enough to buy back in. It was my introduction to traditional games, and there was a time when I enjoyed it very much. I want to buy 40k, but Gamesworkshop is doing their very best to push me away, and simply not buying their product won't tell them that.

To my understanding, it's basically that resin tends to make very fine particles that aren't particularly biodegradable when sanded, filed, etc. These get in your lungs, and can irritate in ways that may cause problems. So, yeah, don't breath dust, especially plastic dust.

For me, no hobby time today at all. May try to paint tonight if time permits.

Working on someting you'll either love or hate. Hopefully to be revealed by November.

To be fair, resin in general is pretty toxic for the human body, regardless of the company it comes from. To quote Ouze:
Ouze wrote:I decided to don my surgical mask before doing the drilling, since I don't know what this new resin is made of, but I'm sure it's not, you know, vitamins and stuff.


As for me, I'm trying to figure out what to paint my Crimson Fists Successor chapter, I'd be willing to hear any suggestions here.

Hopefully I'll have the enthusiasm to crack on with my Hassassin Barid. Finishing two Infinity models in a row (a Muyib and a Nasmat) burned me out, but I want to break the habit of not being able to do multiple models in a row to get through some of my backlog.
