Hello!

How goes it?

Let us know of your projects and promises! There are no penalties except those you put upon yourself

For this month:

-get a second dreadnought chassis built
-get the autcannons for the dreads cleaned and put on
-clean and prep the bases for the bikers and storm talons I have built as well as for the 2 dreadnoughts.
-cut the hand off of either a plasma pistol or power sword and replace it with a green stuffed handle.

(I could do more maybe but I don't want to start painting till the weather warms up a bit so my primer doesn't get messed up. I'd build more but funds are kind of limited right now and some of them have to go to other things... dang you eye doctor visits and glasses.)

Its about time i made some p&m vows....

1) Stop bouncing between 'random' buys and stick with Warriors of Chaos
2) Paint first WoC model to a 'high' standard
3) Get the majority of a box of Warriors of Chaos regiment finished.

I think that might be accomplishable... (is that a word?)

I'm going to revive an old army of mine that I put aside too long ago.
Going to drive myself nuts I'm sure, but I've got this compulsion to have every single model be completely unique.

Took a gander at the Vets... they look pretty good. I like the bases and the choice of arctic camo. Are you going to do the LRBT and Chimera in the same colors?

Durham, Durham

Bought the 6th edition 40k rulebook on release day I believe but never done anything with it since due to redecorating my house and preparing for the arrival of a whole new person. Seriously need to get back in the game. I have picked up a terminator lord kit and the 6th edition chaos codex and this month I will:

* set up a modelling blog to track my progress
* build said termi-lord so that I can legally field my only troop models (plague marines)
* re-model almost every unit to include champions as per new rules
* get myself back down to the Durham gw and get a game of 6th edition.
* at least make a start on buying the parts for some cultist squads

Just getting back into it, so here goes..

1. Start up some kind of blog on my website to track my progress.
2. Get the rest of my supplies, need some decent brushes and a few other bits and pieces, including a sonic cleaner since I have a ton of old models.
3. Start practicing my Salamander painting following LBursley's guide until I feel I'm doing a good enough job to start building my army.
4.Track down a good guide to painting reptile scales before I even consider converting a Captain.

My plan for Feb was to finish the Elven steeds for my Wood Elf unit, then work on the Word Bearer Havocs and Oblits. Unfortunately for my hobby-time my Lovely Bride has been offered a new job so we get to pack up and relocate...

Painting and modeling is going to be on hold for a while. I'll be keeping an eye on this space though, so please go on without me and I'll do my best to offer support and encouragement.

definitely not as productive as I'd expected to be. I got my test models done, but I'm only about half way through painting my defiler. had a few misteps early on and now I'm waiting on some paint I ordered, so I may not finish deffie before the end of the month.

I haven't done anything for mentioned goals yet but I did get 5 more bikes built as well as some random Space Wolves Termies.

If stuff arrives on time I may be able to finish my goal this month.

Late to the party, but I'm hoping to finish up the trio of DKH dwarves I have in-progress. Shouldn't be too hard to wrap them up and make a dent on the final two in the next week or so. I know I'm not even getting started on the undead portion until next month.
