|I'm up to two squads of Intercessors and two characters.|
My Imperial Fists project is chugging along reliably. I finished up another squad of Intercessors and a Primaris Ancient (the guy with the banner) and its all starting to feel like a real force now. I have a nice, somewhat simple, recipe for yellow and have mastered the use of Microsol on the Forgeworld transfers I'm using (Protip - always use a layer of Gloss varnish or 'Ard Coat on the area you're going to put the transfer on FIRST. Trust me.) so things are kind of skating along.

I really enjoyed working on the Ancient and the standard was just a ton of fun to do. Anyone following me on Twitter or Facebook would have seen an in-progress shot where I used a smaller fist transfer at first. I was really unhappy with it, but the larger decal was just a little too big to fit. I decided to tackle it again when I saw a friend had cut out just the fist for the banner of his Crimson Fists. I kicked myself for not doing something so obvious the first time, and a trimmed decal and a white field gave me exactly what I was looking for.
|Another unit of Intercessors. I really, really like the new armor design for MK X armor but it will be fun|
to do something new in a bit.
|Toot! Toot! I went with a nice farm red as it is also reminiscent of the Ad Mech's color scheme.|
Sunny weather and summer in Seattle (for the very short time it lasts) also means that its time for some more battle boards. Last weekend, I did some priming and added sand to a couple of boards for my ash waste set; and this weekend I finished them off. I've tried to bring in some more color to the boards by adding ferrus-tainted river section. The banks of the river can also be removed and used as a hill section. Now I've 10' of this board to use (including 4' of Chaos hells cape) so I think I can ease off this project for a long while.
|Now things pop a little more and the "river" can be bridged with some of the industrial terrain.|
|Just a cool shot.|
I'm sure this summer will see me building some more scenery - I'm just not sure what, yet. In the meantime, I've got another Lieutenant and a squad of Hellblasters to work on for the Imperial Fists.
