Finished my Riptide tonight. Took about a week or so of solid dedication. I’m really proud of his base. I think it looks pretty cool. Also pictured is a Fire Warrior for scale.
I watched Rise of The Guardians last night and it was really awesome. I was getting emotional all over the place. I really enjoyed the origins and “purpose” of each Guardian. It also had some really great action sequences. I would definitely recommend this to anyone young or older.
Finished my Commander Shadowsun and her two crisis suit bodyguards. That Blood for the Blood God paint is really cool.
I finally got to paint my Commander Shadowsun last night. She was the HQ I wanted as soon as I started playing Tau. I love he prototype stealth suit and her crazy fusion cannons and all her abilities. She’s radical.
I originally wanted to paint her solid white like the Games Workshop style, but she was almost too clean. I really like the grey/white urban camouflage colours that I ended up getting. She has some Tau Light Ochre highlighting on her points and the metallic brass painted on the large bolts on her suit.
I’m really excited to finish her and her Crisis Bodyguards and eventually use them in play in our league.
I finally got my Forgeworld XV9 suit together with a combination of glues. It’s looking pretty badass if I do say so. I have to clean up the space marine bodies a little bit, but that won’t be hard. I’ll prime these tonight and hopefully get some good painting done on them.
Played my second game of our little 40k league last night. Went up against a large Ork Army. After learning from some previous matches, I decided not to start in cover and just set up a wide firing line. I destroyed them all. Over the five turns I killed every Ork and all I lost was a gun drone.
Now I’m not an amazing player, I had some great rolls and my opponent had some really junk rolls, but that happens. It was a great ego boost, and I’m excited to keep playing in our little league. Onward to 750 points!
I’ve updated my portfolio site to have an actual URL that isn’t something DOT byname DOT COM. You can check out some of my better work that I’ve been doing over the years.
