One down and 2 to go...

I have started work on my remaining ravengers. These were the last that I based in the light green spray can. I thought it would make it easier to paint the light green areas but really I ended up having to do the white basecoat before the green anyway. I then painted all the body areas in blue on all 3 and then started to paint the carapace in white.

Instead of continuing the assembly line I decided to finish the guy I started. I quickly went through the rest of the steps and even highlighted him. I finished with painting the base black and got it ready for flocking.

After that I started working on the second guy. I got him to the highlighting stage. I should have him finished soon and that will bring me down to one.

That is all for now.

The Tau are getting closer

I can here the robotech music now.  I should paint it up as skull leader
 The Tau are almost here and I am pretty excited.  I mean look that that suit!  I love anime and so I everything about the Tau is cool.  They have mecha and hover tanks what is not to like. A lot of people critisice the head on the suit but I like it.  It is just a sensor suite so it stands to reason to be a lot like the crisis suits suite.  I would have liked a rail option but then again I will take more shots with a plasma canon and just leave the rail shots to  the broadsides and hammerhead.

Zoans that make you moan...

I had a few hours open this weekend so I continued to press on with painting my army. I decided to work on the Zoanathropes in the army since I thin they would be quick and simple here are the results.

Work Continues...

While visiting my fiancee this weekend I had a few hours to kill while she worked so I kept working on my gants. I got a full coat of scorpion green on the armor pieces and they are starting to look almost done. While I was there I also found a place to play 40k for when I move there.  Epic Loot looks nice and has a sizable gaming room.  I didn't see any terrain so I am not sure how they shape up for that but their area is as large if not larger that Fantasy Books and Games.

Here fishy, fishy, fishy!

Over the weekend there were leaked pictures of the the new Tau coming out in April.  I am both excited and sad.  I am excited because they need an update. Hopefully my anime mechs will no longer be laughed off the board. I am sad because I have no money to spend on these guys.

Looking at combat patrol..

I have been talking about my friendly list for adepticon but have completely ignored the other game I am playing, Combat Patrol.  This is a 400pt game with limits like no more than 2 wounds, limited FOC, vehicles only having front armor 11 and a few others.

The (g)ants go marching one by one...

Adepticon is looms closer and closer and so I need to continue to keep painting.  The next thing I am going to work on is my Termagants with devourers or as they have been called devilgants. I will keep to the same steps I used in doing my gargoyles.
Base, white layer, light green, bone, retouch, wash.  Pretty easy.

Here is a progress shot:

Updates come later.

TO play though I was told I need to have some objective markers to play so I set down my paint brush and picked up some model magic and got to work.
