Deathmaster Snikch

Holy Crap it’s been a long time since I’ve posted!  Alrighty; new year, new commitment.  I didn’t hit 2 units a week, although I DO think I hit over 65 units painted for last year.  I should have just been happy with 1 unit a week.  :p  So anyways, here we go again:  1 unit per week commitment.  Currently I’m working on 120 rats (4 units), 3 Rat Ogres, a Bone Breaker w/Skaven Warlord, a Warp Lightning canon, 5 assault marines, a dreadnought, a vindicator, 5 sanguinary guard, 5 Blood Crushers, Skulltaker on a Juggernaut, 3 weapons teams, a Warlock engineer, and a chaos dwarf sorcerer on a Lammasu… 16 units altogether.  This will probably be similar to when I was working on all my daemons; a lot of “slow” progress, but I’ll finish several units over the course of a few weeks.

Deathmaster Snikch was pretty easy.  Granted I don’t do any wild advanced paint schemes, but for the most part he was all one color with a few embellishments here and there.  I don’t find assassins to be very valid in the new Skaven book; the couple of times that I have used them, they’ve been pretty worthless…

I’m fairly excited about the new Skaven units coming out; I’ll most likely get one of each of the new items so I can have two Hell Pit Abominations, Plague Claw Catapults, Warp Lightning canons, etc.  I think the Doom Flayer in particular looks very good.  I’m also excited at the prospect of getting a Storm Raven in February…

Painted Tau Army

Holy Crap!  It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted, but fear not!  I have taken a ton of photos and have been painting during my break.  Following Doug’s advice, I will be posting Army pics this week.  Only finished models will be included in these photos.

This is my Tau army to date.  I have painted everything Tau that I own, although this army is not quite tournament-ready.  I need to get one more Battleforce to fill out my Kroot and Stealth Team.  I also need to get some Piranhas, Broadsides, and one more Hammerhead.  HOWEVER, it’s fully painted, and I’m pretty proud of that.

I have been booking on painting since that last time I logged on.  Since I last wrote on here, I have completed some scenery, which I will not include towards my total, a Soul Grinder, 15 Plague Monks, 4 Plague Censer Bearers, 3 Jezzails, 5 Assault Marines, 5 Death Company, Mephiston, a Storm Raven, 4 Blood Angels Assault Terminators, 1 Blood Angels Sanguinary Priest Terminator (I won’t count any new sanguinary priests until I get past their max of 3), and a Tau Devilfish (I think that’s it).  New totals are posted below.  It’s great to be back!  🙂
