Not today but over a few days, I tried to glue together three of my eight old school metal Harlequins. The Troupemaster didn't have the stuck to connect him to his tactical rock so I put a pin through his base and stuck him on it like that (I have another one which has all the parts, though) Repainted the bases with base texture paint as it looked a bit...sparse, they seem a bit better now. Painted the face of my 2nd Exarch of my 1st Dire Avengers squad, pretty happy with how he turned out, thinking of painting his hair blond or maybe even white. Then painted the base of my Autarch with wraithbone base paint and a bit of blue.

All my Harlequins have blades or chainswords and fusion pistols so I might have to buy more for more equipment options. I realised I can make four Kill Teams from four different factions. Chaos from the Officio Assassinorum: Execution Force board game, Harlequins, Eldar and Dark Angels. Wondering if I could get some terrain and try to play it with my flatmate using my miniatures, that'd be pretty cool.

I have continued my work on the simple terrain (made from the tree from Conquest Jotnar and Oathmark bases) by fulfiling the gaps using cut to pieces Oathmark bases melted with Revell glue, and making a silhouette of the base to look more ''natural''.

Painting the bases of my 1st Dire Avenger squad, wraithbone base paint. Most of my six-man Striking Scorpions squad and my Autarch then began dry brushing on Terminus Stone in preparation for my game of Kill Team against my cousin...today. Of course got a lot of wraithbone on the legs of my models (made sure to thin the hell out of it with water, which was easy enough to fix. My SSs will be a bit more of a challenge, though) Also tried to paint a pupil of the 2nd DA Exarch, it's...okay. As the great Shrek once said: "That'll do Donkey. That'll do." For now at least. Also, fixed up some paint splats, or at least I think they're paint splats on my Autarch's wings. Valkian Aralian, Autarch of Dalorsia, leader of the Dalorsian infiltration group, alongside a Farseer who I haven't thought the name of yet.

Storage solution day!

Recutting and repacking my Fyreslayers KR foam to fit into 2 GW cases.
Rearranging my Tau cases as I just picked up some flyers.
Totally redoing my Astra Militarum cases to allow for a custom Tallarn force and 3 new vehicles, including a rather lovely (I think) Chimera command tank made by Archon Studio, the 'Wolverine' tank.

Re-arranging my painted Harlequins, Space Wolves and Idoneth armies in cabinets to allow room for... well more something.

Checking out Detolf / Argos cabinets & sources of extra shelves & lighting so I can maybe display my aforementioned Astra Militarum forces... if they'll even fit!

Not much today, in all honesty. Tried to wash the traces of crap off my Angaran Chronicles Hero Forge minis I made the mistake of priming and not washing beforehand and stuck some arms that'd fallen off a couple of my Dire Avengers when I went into town to play Kill Team Commanders with my cousin yesterday. A little deflated as the Autarch I spent so many hours painting was useless in that game and died in the most anti-climactic way possible and it was all my dumb fault lol Learned a lot from that game, though!

Thanks!

And I'll be "cheating" / "playing it safe" by doing not just big models for this challenge. Chances are the Og may be the biggest one of the bunch.

Laaaaaaaate last night, due to insomnia, I've finished an Imperial Guard veteran with shotgun, along with a Steel Legion officer just now. I had hoped to batch paint three Steel Legion models, but the movie I watched proved to be more entertaining than anticipated.

Crappy picture, due to potato quality of my ancient iPad and well, bad weather going on right now, we's got snow.



But that's 3/24 done, hopefully tomorrow I'll get the Steel Legion sergeant and trooper done as well. After that, a more detailed or somewhat complex model to even out the bulk painting.
