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…

Mentors Space marine Vindicator

So, the story is that Mentors are on the cutting edge of technology, so my plan is to paint any of the more advanced/powerful weapons and vehicles with a Mentors theme, and any more normal-ish units as blood angels.  The Vindicator is pretty awesome, except that it essentially has one weapon, so if it gets a single weapon removed from being damaged, it suddenly becomes almost worthless.

So… I’m working on crisis suits/hammerhead at work on breaks and my firewarriors/stealthsuits/pathfinders at home.  I’m hoping this will be like my daemon painting spree where I finish a ton of units at the same time…
