So what are you are all doing today for games like WH40k, WHFB and other war games? Me, I'm planning on making a Skaven army list and talking to my friend a bit more to try and convince him to purchase a dwarf army he's interested in, how about the rest of Dakka?

When I get home from work, I'm casting more winged butts in urethane resin. In between pouring those, I have a pair of Rhinos I want to try getting a basecoat on - I want to try making a conversion Hyperios and Damocles, respectively.

I am writing some more background for the Only War campaign that I will hopefully running later in the year. Just done the Troopship's history and I plan to make a start on the introductory scenario which will feature the ship's recent owner quite heavily (a Rogue Trader who was executed by the Ordo Xenos for somereason)

Just put The Boy on the bus for his first day of 2nd grade, so my my mid-mornings/afternoons are free for hobby work.

Today's plans are to work on the sarge/flamer/ML from the Battle of Macragge box set, and possibly clean and assemble another bike. Might get to the attack bike today. I also need to clear a landing zone for tomorrow's supply drop. I've got a tub of stuff in simple green that needs to be scrubbed, but would need to clean the kitchen before I get to that. But I want to get that stuff ready for a fresh coat of primer.

I have to level my character for tonight's Pathfinder campaign.

Playing Bolt Action tonight, and trying to decide which jacket color to go with on my US Army infantry.

Tomorrow I"ll take part in the Magic Celebration Day because hey, free magic cards. Then when I get home sunday morning after celebrating a buddy's birthday I'll put the finishing touches on my Bolt Action Figs, and prime the next bunch to be painted and probably assemble more US Infantry.

A friend of mine wants to do one more skirmish before getting rid of his models. He's engaged and moving into a house with his future wife, and is downsizing...since he never plays 40K anymore, he's not interested in keeping anything. But, on the plus side, I'll get some Necron and IG models out of it

I'm on a pretty long break from war gaming stuff right now, so the closest thing to it is my 1/700 HMS Rodney build, which is progressing very quickly. It's mostly painting left to go, plus the fiddly nightmare that is photo-etch railings!

I may revisit some of my old High Elf models after the Rodney is completed, as my mini painting skills probably need some practice, and I can't really afford any after-market sets for my remaining ships stash for a while.

Painting more of my farsight enclave. Its a tedious process with rhinox hide base, 2 coats of mephiston red over leg/shoulder/chest armour, fortress grey over center chest/shas'vre head/certain links of the armour, bolt gun for jet pack thrusters. I've only got 5 of my 14 suits to this point and 2 firewarriors.

Then after that I need to do green OSL on their optics, apply freehand marking/decals, then experiment with my FW weathering pigments. Finally I'll worry about basing them properly.

This is what I will be doing for the next few weeks every other days... :(
