Thanks. The BS is for a friend but I won't be able to get it to him till spring and can travel. The Chaplain is one of Two kits I brought. The second one I'll be converting to a Captain. Bought a special helmet and will replace the crozius with Spear. I just need to do something with the breastplate. More to ponder.

Next up will probably be the Lucius Warhound. Weekend glue day needed. I need to free up some table space.

Love the Scorpion. Always thought it was a cool model. Crons look very nice too. I dont understand this strange shade of yellow on this biker fella. Very confusing.

Back again.

WM : actually it's more of a gold. The camera is making it weird, I might have gone a bit overboard with the wash.

That said, I will start posting more as I push towards the massive amount of things I'm working on for next years Adepticon ( assuming it happens )
The plan is to bring 3 armies for games with my friends. I don't expect to play in any official tourney but pickup's with my friends and play armies they probably haven't had a chance to face.

So I have been working on Necrons (First Army I'm bringing). Getting the models I have already painted ...Repainted to the current theme.
So far I have repainted the Monolith, 5 wraiths and a Triach Stalker, I have painted in addition a 2nd Monolith, a 2nd Stalker, 4 more Wraiths ( sucks that they come in 3 and I need 10 ). A 5 man unit of Lychguard w Shields and a 5 man unit with warscythes. a 5 man unit of Praetorians. Lastly one of 3 Doomstalker
So based on my list I'll need to builds and paint 5 more Praetorians, an Additional wraith ( but will paint the other two while I'm at it ), a Doomstalker, a Tecnomancer and some of the new Scarabs (12 ).

In addition there is a Repaint for the Night Shroud bomber and some misc HQ's ( not in my AC list )

Next up is to finish my List for the Tyranids (2nd army I'm bringing ) all I'm missing is several Monsters Units, a unit of biovore's and a good amount or ripper swarms.

Lastly I started on a Primaris Space Marine list. I have named them the 'Sentinals' Sons of Dorn. I have the unconventional thought of playing a large amount of Dreads as a theme. Dreads have always represented a 40k vibe with me. So far I have purchased just about everything I need for my list ( And More ) but manage to paint mostly things that are not in my list... just cause and trying my new color theme. Gotta get focused.

Next will be a complete redo of the Terrain for the event I run at Adepticon ( Knight Fight ). There is a thread on Dakka if your interested. I have to build and Paint a 6x8 Cityscape board for the Imperial Knights to run around in. Past Years I used alot of MDF buildings and this worked well but it didn't look very gothic or grimdark. This board will be using the modular kits from the 'Rampart' cathedral terrain kickstarter. Went all in and should be able to up my game for the Event.

Then I invested in a new Necron board. New Mat(s) and terrain. I thought I should have a table that complemented my army not just some distant battlefield. Cool thing is I purchased some files and Ramos has generously played around with 3d printing them so I will have lots of terrain options. I still have all my Jungle terrain for my Nids to play on so I'll be bringing that too.

Then Finally the Titans.. Finish the Warlord titans additional weapons, back banner and detailing and build and paint the Lucius Warhound. Hope to use them in the full scale Titannicus game ( Hope I can get all 4 of mine in the game. 2 Warhounds, Reaver and the Warlord.

Now all I need is time.. I have 8 months. Starting my countdown... Thanks for stopping by...

It is traditional my friend, to include a link to a thread you mention wanting people to visit. That being said I didn't see any threads by you besides this one that had been posted to since December 2020!

Great to hear you're keeping so busy. Looking forward to seeing photos of the various painted models as you complete them. Good luck!

Yeah,, the Knight Fight thread was mainly to give people a look at the past. I'll be posting progress as I get into full Urban terrain building mode.

So on the Necron Front, I got some of the mats I ordered and some Obelisks' ( they are originally objective markers that I'll use as terrain )

2 more additional Mats should be coming so I can create additional sized boards.

Couldn't resist seeing how some of my Repainted Necrons look on it so I took a few pics.

I also wanted to see how the Obelisk's look painted up and on the board so I painted one to check as well.

Finished a few more stragglers.. The Primaris Cptn from the box set. Sorry no pics .. yet

I did manage to get started on a Project that I intended to do for Adeption last year. Kinda put off after the event got derailed. Started on the Lucius Warhounds Legs. this will be a different Legio than the others I have . Being a Lucius Pattern I thought that it should be a Horus Heresy era Legio. So I'm going with Legio Fureans or TigerEyes. Yellow with Black flames. They turned Traitor and even fought in the assault on Earth and the Imperial Palace. Working on the Leg armor next before I get to the body.

Thanks. I'll get to assembling the body this weekend.

I discovered makeup brushes. They are like wet blending dry brushes. Really am impressed. Getting better at using them. They also are amazing for OSL. Which I started using on my recent Necrons

The paintjob looks great so far. Without the rest of the titan, those legs look like nightmarish cyborg chicken legs.

It feels that way. Still working on the body. Resin warping , gap filling and test fitting to get the best results.
Finished up the bottom half and started on the 3 weapon options. Only the Plasma cannon is finished.

Hey, is there any way I can help you make your grind to Adepticon?

Thanks for the offer.
Not sure.. I'll have to ponder that. I have Several Armies I need to finish and I'll need to finish them myself. The New Knight Fight terrain is Unfortunately all Modular so I'll be building it as I go. More trial and error planning. I will have much more time than I thought as I'm off work starting in November.

If I get in a bind I will reach out. Though I believe / Leaning towards that Adepticon will be cancelled next year as well with all the recent new variants and politicizing surrounding the virus.

I have concerns how many more years off or false starts Adepticon can even survive.

If it does survive, will it be under attended or will it explode as folks are hungry for any type of experience?

Those legs are vastly improved by the armor plating. It's looking fantastic.

Love the black, curling flame details. Really help sets it off. Nice work SL. That'll be a fine addition to your imperial forces.

Wowzers that is some gorgeous yellow on that big fella. I am hoping Adepticon goes off without a hitch, it is close enough to me that I could drive in for the day. Plus seeing that knight fight again would be cool.
