One week away from winter break... eyeing a squad of Celestians as an immersion project and hoping to get this blog back on the rails.

You can never go wrong with a squad of sisters, so listen to the good word of Nike and "just do it"

Well, I got the Celestians built and based, but I didn't get far into paint before getting distracted. I'm pretty happy with the way the helmets are going. The robes are a little bit of a pain, but two of the models popped apart at the waist and have been much easier to paint... I'll probably do it again where I can. Trying to finish this squad before the Retributers I just ordered arrive!

They look perfectly suited for painting as sub-assemblies, so a happy hobby accident!

Thanks for sharing

Good luck MacPhail.

The post always seems faster when you have set yourself a painting deadline.

Long overdue update, mostly a place to park my to-do list...

The Celestians are very close, but not quite done. I got them mostly painted, then assembled and based, just in time for a game last weekend. Now they need the finishing details: heat-stressed melta barrels, lens flares, purity seals, and a few highlights.

I bought a bunch of pre-wired LEDS for various projects, including a flickering blue one to simulate an arc-welder in a workshop and a bunch of flickering amber ones to build torches with (either for objective markers or Raise the Banners tokens).

I've got a cool idea for a wall-mounted diorama for the LoER Terrain Contest... a squad of Battle Sisters traversing a ledge on a sheer cliff.

I grabbed a mountain of XPS foam from a construction site and bought a new hotwire foam cutter to play with.

I bought my first squads of Retributers and Repentia to build and paint.

I have lots of Sisters left from the Army Box and a Celestians/Dominions box I bought... probably going to convert some extra Superiors and Simulacra from them if I can.

I just bought a second squad of Bullgryns and a second Chimera to accompany the first 3 Bullgryns (done), the first Chimera (half done), and the five Ork Nobz / Orgyns mashups I started a few pages back.

I need to plan and order some Battlefoam and start storing and carrying this army like a grownup... what am I, twelve years old? (Although I did buy some of the models when I WAS twelve, with a sweat sock full of loose change at Ralph's Comic Corner.)

These are the projects rattling around in my brain... more as I remember them!
