Viva Las Vegas

This weekend I will be heading to Vegas for the Las Vegas Open. My wife and I scheduled this trip as the same time as the open it is more of a weekend getaway than a convention trip. With that being said, I still plan to go to the LVO for one day.  I have a few goals while I am there.

WIP: Primaris Repulsor

Work continues on the Primaris Repulsor. I have given it a base coat and have started laying down the basic colors.

#Squaduary Pledge

So, it has been brought to my attention that February has been deemed Squaduary.  This is Similar to Dreadtober but Squaduary is a pledge to finish a whole squad in one month instead of a dreadnought. I could just use my pledge for the "Tales of X Warlords" league, the hellblasters, but since I already started on them and could be almost finished with them before the month starts, I decided that for my pledge for Squaduary will be a brood of fourteen genestealers.

Looking Ahead

While I fix the repulsor and wait for a nice day to prime it I thought I would get started with my hellblasters.  Seing that I was in a basecoating mood I also laid down the teal on a lt, the ancient and a random intercessor. This got me thinking on how far I have come and how far I still have to go.

WIP: Primaris Repulsor

With the January pledge finished, I thought I would get started building my Repulsor tank. For the sake of the league, it is a dedicated transport for my Feburary pledge, a squad of Hellblasters.

I had a little downtime last week ans so I actually finished up my Aggressors.  This completes my January pledge for the "Tales" campaign. Lets take a look.

Showcase: Primaris Aggresor

Most of this week has been to cold to prime models so I work stalled on my aggressors. I even tried a paint on primer with very poor results. Finally the weather warmed just enough to prime before dropping back into freezing temperatures.  I quickly primed the Aggressors and I was back in business.

Shadespire: Bonekutta

While I waited for the temperature to warm up enough for priming my Aggressors, I decided to paint my Shadespire miniatures.  I started batch painting them but quickly changed to focusing on one.  The result is a finished Bonekutta.

Blockade's Goals For the New Year

Hi All!

Blockade here, to share his lovely hobby goals with you all this year. Last year I was on a no-spending year for miniatures in an effort to paint as much as possible. I was successful for 11 months! December, and a new Games Workshop opening near me did me in. Argh! But that's okay, because this year I have the same goal. Paint way more than I purchase (hopefully purchasing nothing, as the budget does not allow for much.)
