Helmet wings are a nice touch. Hopefully you find your missing bikers.

Found the missing bikers.... I had them and put them in the drawer next to me ...getting old and senile.

Also started on 5 deathwing with claws.


The new FEP sheets will arrive Saturday, four days quicker than expected. I might be able to get some accessories printed this weekend.

The only things I was able to print with the new screen before the old FEP failed were these mirrored lightning claws similar to Chapter Master Hurons claws. They have actual finger claws and lightning claws. This extra blade guard guy got a matching set.

Stupid distractions......

Worked on the printer for a while, frustrating to say the least. Hopefully it’s resolved as I started a batch a bit ago, but getting cuddles from the cat now so I cannot get up to go check .

Took a trip last night with the wife to buy her a MacBook Air. She’s been using school chrome books for the last few years, but as she is working on her Dissertation, anything written on the Chromebooks is “Technically” the schools, besides we have been saving up for it for her. The apple store we went to was in a shopping mall with a Barnes and Nobles, so I made a side journey there while she was being helped. I had heard they had received the first issue of Warhammer Imperium on the 26th so I went and grabbed 3 copies. Why? Because I got impulsive and at $6.95 an issue I got 3 more Bladeguard Sgt. And 3 more Necron Royal Wardens....and 18 dice . I’ll have to look at future issues and time my trips accordingly.


Speaking of Necrons....I have had an Urge...started repainting my scarab Swarms and assembled 12 skorptek destroyers, which got spray primed black earlier along with four unprimed outrider bikes.

I still cannot get a Necron scheme to work for me. I went and dub out my Tomb Kings armybook for inspiration.

Thanks guys . I might give those a shot, but I may have also stumbled upon a simple style that works.

Enter the 18 evil pumpkin swarms of DOOM.

I’ll have to see how basing makes them look, the orange glow is helping as the light blue I had used was not menacing enough.

Also a pic of the destroyers in their primed glory.

Thanks, I'll try that out on one when I get home tonight. I really like the black depth on the engraved symbols. For me it looks "Alien" for a power weapon to be absorbing the energy in those spots. The picture above has drybrushed kindleflame for the highlights, a little hard to tell, but it's there. I gave them all an alternating effect by using Gryph Hound Orange over the top of the pictured area. I'll do another layer again tonight, possibly adding a little Blood Angel Red to some parts or hit the lighter area with some contrast Iyaden yellow.

Bad winter storm starting tomorrow night and lasting for a few days with Ice and possibly 12" of snow, I guess I might have some assembly time for 60 Necron Warriors, but I may have to hit the local shop for a Necron Combat Patrol...Just in Case .

Also torn on basinb between Astrogranite Debris and trying to find a sand texture that I like.

Today being the last day of the month I look at my model count and if I can get these guys power blades done I'll have rocked out 91 Models this month. I really owe it all to using the Elf Brushes and a simple paint scheme with batch painting. I don't think I have ever done a recap post for what I've done over a 1 month period before. Stay tuned. There are also a few Necrons partially done, and a few Marines primed and ready, so I could push for 100 this month depending on how tonight goes.

Well that’s about as good as they’ll get powerwise. Definitely not award winners, but definitely tabletop from what I’ve seen locally.

Also did more details on their legs.

And added 4 plasmacytes to the complete list

95

Not breaking 100 this month. Had to stop and get a haircut because of event the wife and I are attending over this weekend. So I guess the next steps for Feb. will be assembly of warriors.

Edit: half hour, including assembly, to knock out number 96. Not perfect but good enough.


In bed now, so 96 it is.

We are Legion…..

Unfortunately the Crypteks have used our bases for other things.


But at least all 60 warriors are assembled, 30 of each weapon type.

Also repainted the doom stalker and the cryptek guy who’s name eludes me.

More characters to assemble, then onto base coats of Corvus Black. Ice day, no work.

Well church activities tonight are also cancelled, so time to try for a daily record....or nap...definitely an nap, especially if I can get one of the cats to go with me.

Finished assembling the first royal court from Indomitus box 1, also the characters from the elite boxes and the three extra royal Wardens from the first Warhammer Imperium magazines I picked up last week. So what to do next? Assembled the second court figures as well.

I need to track down the big bases for the second Skorpekh Lord and Doom Stalker.

Taking a break to get a 1/4 inch (6-7mm) of ice off the cars and sidewalk, then grabbing a cat and taking a nap.

I’ve had Star Wars clone wars animated series going while I’ve been painting and assembling the last week or so. The younglings are on Florim working with Hondo now....I don’t see that ending well .

Hmmm, may have to take a look at what's in the current Necron range, there appears to be plentiful chop-shop opportunities ahoy.

Thanks guys. They make wonderful models, the refresh of the range is great. I also noticed that, at least in my eyes, they look very Tyranidish. The larger models in particular as they have the armor plates that seem to match closely to the Tyranid exoskeletal structure, the back protrusions/vents and since they are skeletal they have the similar rib system. Not sure if that was a design choice or just “everything is vaguely human” design of Star Trek influencing the designs. Even the fact that the Destroyer cults have more arms (like Tyranids). Perhaps the original Necrons knowing of the great devourer, incorporated some of the tyranid designs, kind of adapting to the adapters.

Anyway, about two hours worth of interrupted work got these 17 guys primed, base coated, highlighted the silver and then the layers of gold/bronze added.

If/when I decide to do Iron Warriors again I will definitely be using this technique. Super fast and I think it has great results. I might have to do some test models, especially if they ever release the box set for Horus Heresy.
