Hi firstly forgive my poor English, long story short I had models to paint but still I was buying more of them. To my only shame boxes and gray silhouettes keep growing in a mess to the point I quit entering in the room I was storing them. (Not the case of my girlfriend that is getting mad at me). So I decided to get rid of some armies I won't paint and sell them( done!) to commit myself to paint my most beloved units. So far it consist in mostly Nurgly (AoS and wh40k) , finally this is the list of my things to finish, almost gray or in box: 1 Great Unclean One 10 Plague Bearers 3 Plague Drones 1 Beast of Nurgle 1 Slopitty Bilepiper 1 Spoilpox Scrivener 1 Feculent Gnarlmaw 1 Epidemius 1 khorgorath 1 bloodsecrator 5 chaos knights 10 Chaos marauders horsemen 40 Cultists 1 Foetid-Bloated Drone 1 Daemon Prince of Nurgle 1 Foul Blightspawn 1 cygor 3 Minotaurs 1 Liberators 1 Lord of Blights 1 Festus 2 Blightlord Pusgoyles 15 Putrid Blightkings 20 Daemonettes of Slaanesh 5 Fyreslayers Gutrot Spume 3 Lord of plagues Minis Painted /Big Models: 36 / 6 Minis Bought / Big Models : 34/ 0 And I think thats all. I will self impose some rules. 1.- End full units and don't jump to anything. Bases too. 2.- Don't buy anything impulsively. (Or don't buy at all). What do you think guys? are some of you in the same boat? I'm a perfectionist and sometimes I don't paint because I think it won't be a good paint job. And some motivational speech:
In an effort to throw in a random post that isn't one of the current hot topics, I was musing earlier about hobby goals that I'd like to do, but haven't yet. I don't mean things that are un-achievable but things that could potentially happen for you at some point in the future. I've a couple of things that I'd like to achieve at some point. An army for each Grand Alliance is my "simple" goal and I'm already part way there with it with one done, two currently WIP which leaves one left to do. But I'd also like to run a decent sized gaming event - full thematic narrative with custom battleplans and similar, it goes without saying that this is a future goal! So what hobby goals do you all have (if any)?
The_Chin posted a blog entry in Diary of a ProcrastinatorOk, so I maaaaay have forgotten to post my regular updates as However, I managed to get a game in last week in the local GW against a Freeguild Aelves alliance - really interesting force that I'm looking forward to see how it grows. The game was a proper back and forth affair, and I just managed to seal the win, thanks to my Crypt Ghast courtier unhorsing his general in an honorable joust. Or at least, that's what the Courtier saw from his point of view! I snapped a quick photo of the army post game. Really pleased with how the force is shaping up as a whole now. Continuing on with the theme of the courts and their deluded visions of grandeur, I converted up my Courtier to represent a knight leading the lowly men at arms to battle. Ser Retch Gribbleskin, Champion of the Crimson Vale: I quite like the idea that the courtier's madness has progressed to such a degree that he visualises everything from the trophy on his back's perspective, unaware that he's essentially acting as his own mount. I toyed with the idea of giving the skeleton a mask or draping a tattered cloth over the ghoul, similar to how the Bretonnian horses were garbed for war. However, in the end I think leaving it relatively blank and letting you fill in the blanks yourself adds something to the model overall. I'd also been toying around with how I could add something to the standard ghouls to make them a little more unsettling. I toyed with the idea of giving them all masks, but I quite like the idea of the masks being a conceit for the heroes of the force. So instead, I grabbed a few Goblin Town goblins i had lying around, did a few quick weapon swaps, added some greenstuff and the result is shown below! I quite like the idea that Neferata can't bear the sight of these foul creatures faces, and will only bear their presence if they hide their faces with elaborate courtly masks. Of course, the lowly peasants can't afford such highborn trinkets, so they are reduced to hiding their faces with mirrored masks - the better to reflect their queens beauty. Mirror, Mirror, on the Ghoul... The banner was an opportunity to practice an idea I've had rattling around for some time. It's a bit overwrought for a unit of blood thirsty cannibals, but I can always say its a magical banner reflecting an element of their delusions into the real world! The next Blog post should hopefully drop next week. I'm aiming to grab the Deathrattle start collecting box for Neferata and to convert up a unit of blood knights - again i'll be playing with the deluded nature of the flesh eaters so hopefully the result wont be what you expect! All going well I'll also have an update on my Golden Demon plans for this year - I think I've finally settled on my Age of Sigmar entries for the single miniature and the unit - watch this space! I'll leave you with a few close ups of the Crypt Hauter courtier and the necromancer for my force. The necromancer forms the core of my AOS28 force, along with the troupe of mirrored ghouls. I plan on adding a black coach in the near future to his band of performers - he needs some way of transporting his flayed skin big top after all!
