In 2011, I:
- build and painted 2000 points of Carcharodons
- build and painted 1500 points of Dark Eldar
- build 1500 points of Lamenters
- started 1750 points of Dark Eldar
- build and painted 1500 points of Chaos Marines

Glory to the Twelfth! Glory to Angron!

‎"Because we couldn’t be trusted. The Emperor needed a weapon that would never obey its own desires before those of the Imperium. He needed a weapon that would never bite the hand that feeds. The World Eaters were not that weapon. We’ve all drawn blades purely for the sake of shedding blood, and we’ve all felt the exultation of winning a war that never even needed to happen. We are not the tame, reliable pets that the Emperor wanted. The Wolves obey, when we would not. The Wolves can be trusted, when we never could. They have a discipline we lack, because their passions are not aflame with the Butcher’s Nails buzzing in the back of their skulls. The Wolves will always come to heel when called. In that regard, it is a mystery why they name themselves wolves. They are tame, collared by the Emperor, obeying his every whim. But a wolf doesn’t behave that way. Only a dog does. That is why we are the Eaters of Worlds, and the War Hounds no longer."

—Captain Khârn of the World Eaters Legion's 8th Assault Company, from his unpublished treatise The Eighteen Legions

I got about 2500 points of Nids painted up (though I am now re-doing the armor highlighting), 3000 points of BA, which I have sprayed over in order to paint them all DA colors, and another 2k is (some of which is the previous BA).

My plans for 2012
- Model and paint remaining Nid's (modeling already all but done).
- Paint up everything that is modeled before starting anything new.
- Figure out the stupid airbrush.

So many people doing so much wonderful work! Thanks all for posting your progress on my blog. Remember volume doesn't mean everything, as long as your moving forward, you're in good shape.

Well, finished my 3rd assault marine built... little bit of Florentine chainsword action for ya. This is a pose Iv'e had in my mind for a very long time and for a variety of reasons, it was a major PITA to pull off. However, I'm pretty happy with the results. I have one more kneeling pose in mind for my assault marines, but I think I'll save it for the other squad.

I think it's a BA head... has the medieval "bowl" haircut. I need to get out my engravers as the top of his head/hair is rather featureless... I'll give it a bit of extra character before I paint.

Should have marine #4 done shortly. Will post if I get a bump.

OK, nearly done with the first squad now. Trooper #4. Decided to take it easy on myself & use a pair of legs stock. Still so much fiddling to get the interchangeable back packs... but it worked out eventually.

But I am making up for it in 2012!

I actually hope to have a less productive year in 2012 so I can spend more time with my family. So far I've been a painting fool though... so here's hopin' I slack off some.

Well, in the current write-up, marine #5 gets a flamer. Since I probably won't be using BA rules outside of Adepticon, I won't have to worry about giving him an interchangeable backpack, so I'll just make him as a normal flamer armed marine and the fold him into a tactical squad when I'm done. Which means.... I could actually just turn out a regular old beakie flamer marine. Bit of nostalgia there for the faithful. Not very creative though.

Nostalgia is awesome. Also, it's good, sometimes, too not model, but just go with the fig. That in itself provides variety.
