Just a quick one today, I managed to get my Adeptus Mechanicus army out & on the table last night ahead of the 2nd Confrontation this weekend.
So I’ve managed to get my last minute army decision a) submitted to the TO in time and b) all the unpainted elements are at a stage where I’m happy enough to put them on a table.
These will certainly do as gaming standard for now but there’s so many little details hidden all over these minis there’s no way I won’t be going back at a later date to do more to these…I’ll also not be changing my mind 2.5 weeks before an event ever again lol.
Sooooo….I made a mistake & started reading the Adeptus Mechanicus codex when I picked up a copy and has my head has been turned momentarily from finishing my Deathwatch.
It’s been a hobby heavy week this week in an attempt to keep on track for October. All I can say is that it’s good that I really wanted a Deathwatch army or these buggers were never getting painted…black is such a chore.
Anyway, this week I’ve managed to sort out the second Killteam for the list, Artemis and the Librarian so I’m quite pleased. This means I only have ten more miniatures to paint in roughly four weeks!
Update time on the ol’ Deathwatch…
It’s been a bit of a slog getting this unit done if I’m honest. It’s the largest unit in my list & I was working on them all at once by batch colouring (mostly). Which, whilst time saving is really quite soul destroying.
Made some progress into the pile of Deathwatch waiting for paint & have got more done on the Watch Master…
Just a very brief update today as I got to spend a little more time on the Watch Master…
With last weekend firmly out of the way I can now resume my regular painting schedule…or can I?
It appears there is now a little under ten weeks until the 2nd Confrontation & I’ve decided that I’d like to take my Deathwatch to this event which means I need to paint the army!
The list is built so it’s just brush work from here on in. This is what I’m going to be working on…
This weekend saw the annual Pompey Pillage event return & as always the event was a colossal amount of fun with a great bunch of people.
The event took the form of five games of 8th edition 40k spread over two days, and we’re talking pure, uncut, out of the book 40 Ammerz (see what I did there).
