Over the last two weeks I've managed to finish/start quite a few little projects. First up, for some unknown reason I decided to crack open and put paint to a Warhammer 40,000: Assault on Blackreach set that's been gathering dust for a while on top of my cabinet. I used to own a large Ork army back in the day which is now in a closet on the opposite side of the US and I kinda missed painting Orks. Lord knows why - I really don't have an interest in playing 40K in its current form. Spending a day doing taxes with a friend seems like a similar experience and you can count me out. Maybe by the next edition I'll suddenly have an Ork army again and the game will be magically fun. Who knows?
|The 12 Boyz included in the set. I'll probably do one of the Deff Koptas next.|
|Skwad One. Such tiny units. I was used to running 20 odd-man units. I'm sure I will add to them.|
|Skwad Two. I had fun doing a less saturated green skin tone on these models.|
Definitely gonna carry that throughout the force.
Additionally, I tidied up the last of the French Carbiniers that I purchased on eBay. They came together a treat and I am really pleased with how fast I got this unit finished. I'm also continuing to rebase my French army for Napoleonics and am about 1/2 done with the close order infantry.
|So quick to do. I might have to purchasing already blocked in infantry as well.|
Rounding things out, I finished a little bit of some post-apocolyptic character models that I bought a while back from Lead Adventure. I don't think these particular cats are still available anymore, sadly. But the rest of the line is such great fun. I've got some more of their models and I will probably home-brew some quick rules for a game with some friends.
|Scavengers? Mutants? Survivors? Or just afraid of what that 3 Bean Burrito will do? You decide.|
