A Summer Of Rebirth
Cleaning Out The Attic And Making Up Reasons To Keep My Old Stuff
I have been a part of this hobby for nearly 10 years now, but I have never owned a very large army. My forces are typically around 2000p max, and I can never stay on one project for long.
Now, this basically means I have a lot of armies, and most of them are sitting in storage.
So I thought to myself: "Ember, why don't you take this summer to dust off your old models and repaint them, before you inevitably purchase Dark Imperium in august?"
And so I decided to make another
plog, where I'll hopefully get most of my models sitting in storage up to my current painting level and organise them for future projects. I would much rather start new armies, but this is satisfying in a way. I recently started a new Eldar army, the faction that brought me to 40k
way back in the dark year of 2010, and I stripped a few of my old guardians to repaint (not my first ones, those have WAY to many layers of paint for anything but a flamethrower to strip...).
So what can you expect to be featured on this blog?
I have several "armies" I'll be reviving, and I have a rough idea of what they consist of. Everything with a * is unpainted, and everything with a # needs to be re-painted.
This is my largest and most used army, although it is a far way finished.
What it has:
Prince on Gryphon
Lothern Sea Guard*
6 Warhawks with riders*
5 Elryian Reavers*
My Extra-Heretical Tau Marines
: My first marine army, basically a mish-mash of the units I thought looked cool.
What I have:
Chapter Master in Termiantor Armour
3 Honour Guard
Librarian in Termiantor Armour
5-man Tactical Squad
My Orks: Waage Bigbutt
: My oldest "army", some nobs, grots and burnas that surprisingly turned out to be a legal list. Everything here probably needs to be stripped.
2 Lootas (counts-as meks)
: Mostly pathfinders, probably not legal. Again, everything probably has to be stripped...
So that's most of the models I have in the attic (excluding a few Chaos Space Marines) plus my Aelves. That should be enough for the summer, along with the Sons and Eldar. And Chaos. And Raven Guard. And the new SAGA stuff...
