After looking at my options for Shorehammer I started looking for a deal on"Start Collecting!: Skitarii" box. I saw quite a few for ~$75 after shipping and thought I could wait till June before making a decision. Then I found one for $65 after shipping for a charity. I got a great deal and got to help a small gaming club. A true win-win.
So of course the first thing I want to paint is the Tech-Priest. No matter which list I run I will need him to be my HQ. He has a couple of options. I could take the base Volkite Blaster or take a eradication beamer for 15pts more.
I decided to go with the Volkite gun to give him some range. It is multiple shots at a decent range. It's AP is nothing to write home about but I don't think a 12" AP1 shot would come in handy that often. I will probably park him by my dunecrawlers to try to repair them when they are hurt.
So I went with the standard loadout for this guy. There is a lot of detail here. I started to block in the colors but I have a felling I am going to taking a while to work through all the details. This guy will be pushing me to slow down and take my time. I need to figure out how to paint up those baubles on his back.
