So, yeah, been busy chipping away at the force. I'm just shit at updating images here in a timely fashion.

(Mainly because Photobucket is a nightmare wasteland of bandwidth suck on par with classic 1998 tripod pages crammed full of animated gifs. So I avoid it.)

Anyways, the current terminator crew and assorted power armor friends got their basecoat laid down. Metallic cataphractii trim can kiss my butt.

Then it was time to muck 'em up with filthy oil washes. Yum. Fire up the fume hood...

updatetimez2.jpg



The gang's all here! Minus that one guy to make a squad of 5. He's around...

updatetimez3.jpg


Purple nerds with bonus insta-Praevian conversion (sans Pheonix Spear).

updatetimez4.jpg


Deathguard cataphractii with some fisty Sgts I've been meaning to paint up for about 2 years.

updatetimez5.jpg


Here's the gang Posing down in front of their soon to be finished rides (I swear they are next...) With this my nerd dream of a 5 man terminator squad and accompanying Land Raider is nearly complete.

Now to paint some goddamn tank treads. A most hateful task!

Metallics are done! Hooray! Here's the recently finished terminators posing down by their blocky-ass AV 14 phat ridez. Photo brick or space bricks below.

Next I should probably do the x4 matching Rhinos, buuuuuut I'll put that off a bit longer as I finish up a Magos model for the small AdMech force. Here's some general purpose servo arm buddies I cranked out in the meantime with my also recently finished Praevian/ EC consul with Pheonix Spear.

But, those Rhinos are probably doomed to languish, because the golden custard men call to me from their case...

Caught a rare paint streak after work and stuck with it to finish the Magos. Break time for a bit on this endless army. Time to play some games.

I've sorta (finally) hit a point after 30 years of painting tiny fucking GW spacemenz where I've realized I don't have to go all out anymore on paint jobs as if it were for a competition or event, since this ends up sucking all the joy out of building/painting/collecting. It shouldn't be a zero sum thing and there's only so much time!
 
One of the most talented painted nerds I know ( littlemen ) put that to me pretty clearly a few months back and it's finally gaining traction in my head.
 
I know I'm capable of some really great painted stuff, but it comes at a cost that negatively impacts a great deal of enjoyment from the hobby. I'd much rather just have actual painted stuff.
 
Following that line of thought (having painted stuff...) Baraccas sent over some more of the marines I commissioned him to paint. This time World Eaters in assault and oddball weapons form! He continues to follow my OCD paint directions quite nicely. I finished the models up with shoulder pad decals, some stripes, random scratches, markings, and basing before adding the sgt that I've already had painted up and waiting, much like the previous Emperor's Children.

Seeing a pile of newly ready dudes on the table gave me a nice brain boost and I've got 2 more Deathguard heavy support sgts in the wings that should finish up soon - and that would nearly complete my mad dreams of owning many many infantry.
 
In less exciting news, I rebased some old characters/sgts onto 32mm bases to help make them stand out from the 25mm hordes. (Plus it's a chance to put at least a few marines on the nicer larger bases.)

Cranked two heavy sgts out the other night. Hooray!

Although a super lazy/unnecessary tool, those Mig Oilbrushers are pretty great. One lazy thumb up. (the other thumb is tired, but agrees)
 
Next up might be some weird blackshields as a Shadow War thing/ oddball allied squad.
 
Or those damn rhinos have have sitting there. Lonely. Waiting. Watching.

Gorgeous as usual, and the variety of models must surely make it less daunting than staying on task with a single Legion.

Thanks all!

I think the multi-legion thing is a double edged deal. But a good one.

On one hand yeah, it totally allows me to faff back and forth between the colors I feel like messing with.

On the other hand a fully coherent force is always a pretty rewarding thing on the table. Like Unwanted's Scars or Ripper's Alphas.

However, this is a totally coherent force, just masked in total chaos. Take a few looks to adjust and then it all melds together.

Most days I look at the sprawling force and say: "Fuck yeah!"

Every 15th day I say: "I should have just stuck with Death Guard!"

Every 93rd day I say: "I'd have 6x the amount of stuff in Raven Guard by now!"

Basically, I'm a conflicted mess.

Yay!

Onto the next thing!
