I was thinking of painting some Hero Forge assassin chicks that've been around for a good while. Use them to practice skin for new versions of Anargrin (from the Angaran Chronicles my fantasy/dieselpunk/spy-action thriller novel series I self-published as I have been making and playtesting a TT Skirmish game that's in that setting and Attelus. But, I knuckled down and began freehanding the sign on my Asurmen proxy, and I think it looks...okay. Not too bad. I'm not looking forward to painting the Ying Yang symbol on the shield and I'm really not looking forward to painting the Eldar hieroglyphs on the beige stripe near the bottom of the flag, lol.

After his organisation is hired to hunt down an influential gang leader on the Hive world, Omnartus. Attelus Kaltos is embroiled deeper into the complex world of the Assassin. This is the job which will change him, for better or for worse. Forevermore. Chapter 1.

The Angaran Chronicles: Hamar Noir. After coming back from a dangerous mission which left his friend and partner, the werewolf: Emilia in a coma. Anargrin is sent on another mission: to hunt down a rogue vampire. A rogue vampire with no consistent modus operandi and who is exceedingly good at hiding its tracks. So much so even the veteran Anargrin is forced into desperate speculation. But worst of all: drive him into desperate measures. Measures which drives Anargrin to wonder; does the ends, justify the means?

I...finished? The freehanding on the Asurmen proxy's right side of his flag, I might fix it up again. It's gotten a bit textured up, but I'm still pretty happy with it. I'm liking GW's Grey Seer more and more. It covers exceedingly well and makes a great mid-tone for 'white.' It really helped me out a lot. For the hieroglyphs, at first, I used my Scale 75 black paint, but it didn't work well, so instead, I tried out Abaddon Black, which is much thinner; it worked much better.







I also began assembling my Genestealers (the new one), and it's much easier and simpler than the Death Korps with very few mould lines and those that are there are quite well hidden. I started on them because I realised school holidays are almost over, and the kids might like to play as them for Grimdark Future: Firefight, and if I ever play Five Parsecs from Home Bug Hunt they might work well in that game.

With the new 3.2 update of One Page Rules games, I've been trying to "balance" my custom-made Grimdark Future factions on Army Forge Studio, which seems like the system is a bit baulked, in all honesty. Hopefully, OPR will fix it. I also began free-handing the other side of Not-Asurmen's flag. Got quite far through it. Sorta reminds me of the Prince from the original Prince of Persia game, lol.







I assembled more Genestealers, too, although I frigged up and glued the wrong arm on one, but it's not too bad.

Struggling about in Asmos territory.

Was busy with 20 sisters of the watch (aos) .. their hands and gauntlets, will then do their bows, then their bodies will be done and I still need to do 20 heads and 20 quivers (not doing the swords, i think quivers look better as they are archers)

It's by far the worst job I've ever had to paint and will never ever buy 20 units of anything else I learned that from this.

Probably will be put on hold again though when next month starts for the challenge thread.

I finished assembling my Genestealers (I assembled them with the Ymgarl heads or the Cthulhu/Zoidburg heads, because, obviously) and primed them. I was going to paint a test model but found I hadn't quite primed everything, so I decided to forget about it for now, too tired. I also primed a few other minis here and there.

Also, here are my completed Phoenix Lords. The only GW one is Jain Zar. Karandras, Asurmen, Fuegan, and Maugan Ra are proxies by Major Minis on Etsy. Baharroth is made by Proxy Wars.

Not much today, in all honesty. My awesome Gaunt's Ghosts and Gaunt proxy minis, which I ordered from Etsy ages back, finally arrived. I had a look at the kit and glued a few things together. I'm prioritising writing Secret War: The Annihilation Plague over hobby stuff as I'm almost finished it.

It has to be one of the darkest and most brutal ending of those stories so far and that's really saying something, lol.

And later? Start the drybrushing stage of my 120 Heresy Infantry Marines. Want to get at least 60 of them done. Maybe a mix of units, maybe all the Tactical Legionnaires.

Certainly want to get one, ideally two units done by the end of the weekend.

I painted four Genestealers, so six have finished so far. I want to get all ten done by next Wednesday so the kids can use them. I'm using Flesh Tearers Red contrast paint on the carapace and the GW blood wash, which I've drawn a blank on what it's called on the rest. I primed them with Wraithbone, it doesn't look half bad. While this way of painting is quick and easy, I just don't enjoy it much, and I don't know why.

Maintained my larger than average discount at the shop today.
I Sold a fellow player a 30k/40k Sicarin + a Kratos by showing them where thier 40k rules were in the Legends section.

The players building SM in Legion Imperialis & really likes those tiny tiny tanks. And he plays SM in 40k.
He commented he wished tose tanks had 40k rules.
Me: "Yes. Yes they do! Let me show you where (pulls out phone)".


Twenty minutes later the players bank account was lightened & he had 2 new projects.

Player to staff: "he's so good at costing people $"
Staff: "that's why he gets the discount he does"

*We play in a Legends friendly environment. So those tanks are going to see a good amount of use.
