First up were a pair of Armiger Warglaives from the new 40k starter "Forgebane". My friend Chris had picked up the set and I offered to paint these goobers up in House Krast livery since I'd painted his Knight previously.
|If nothing else, these guys definitely gave me the chance|
to paint all the free hand hazard striping I could eat.
|I had to slightly cut down the House Krast crest (say that|
five times fast) in order for it to fit on the carapace.
I was still happy with the end result.
I also finished up my ten man unit of Breachers for my Horus Heresy army. Then, as a break from painting so much yellow, I knocked out a Primus Medicae Consul for the army as well. Whew. I've just got another Vindicator to paint and the army will be at 3k points. I'll have to take some big shots of all those chuck heads together soon.
|I'm really pleased with how these guys turned out, but man was it a slog to get them done.|
|"Tell me where it hurts. Everywhere? Good. Good."|
Then I spent an evening applying transfers to the shields on my Arab spearmen. The decals are from Little Big Men Studios range. They were very reasonably priced, even for shipping them to the US, and gave the models a nice "pop" once applied. This was my first time using them, and they are a little unusual, but give good results. They almost apply more like stickers than traditional decals.
Finally, I finished up the second unit of Arkanauts for my burgeoning Kharadron Overlord army. These guys also felt like they took forever, but were worth the effort. Maybe I need a break from painting ten man units? The next biggest unit in this army is five guys, so hopefully that will help shake the cobwebs from my noggin and get me into a proper painting headspace.

I'll be here all week. Please tip
Next up are probably some more Overlords, then the Vindicator tank. I hope to finish up around the moment a special treat I ordered from Forge World arrives…
