An update!

So I haven't posted in  a while, but I just had midterms so I was fairly busy with that.  However, I haven't completely stopped painting.  I have been doing a Forge World Greater Brass Scorpion as a commission piece, and matching it to the paint job off of the Forge World site, and it is coming along great!  I have finished the armor plates, which were airbrushed, as well as the cables, which I built up from black to a very dark grey so that you can actually make them out.  Once it is done, I will make sure to put up pictures.  I am also working on 40 Plague Bearers and a Soul Grinder for my Death Guard army.  The airbrushing, washing, and dry brushing is done, and all I have left on them is the detail work and to rust the metal parts.

On to more important news, I actually won my local painting competition.  I got a Vallejo Game Color paint set with 72 paints, 3 brushes, and a carrying case for it all.  I was very pleased about that! 

My final bit of news is that I plan on starting some commission work on models.  I have to knock out some more models that I am currently working on, and I have to set up my blog to reflect it, but I should be ready to go in a month or so.  I will only be doing single modes, single squads, or large vehicles/monstrous creatures.  I used to do large scale commission painting in the past, but I cannot do anything more than a few models or else I start to resent it.  I will be painting to only one degree, which will be a high-table top level, and the pricing will be on a case by case basis.  Stay tuned for more info on that.

Anyways, sorry for the lack of content on here, but the stuff I post in the next week or two should be amazing and make up for it.  Everyone have a great and safe Labor Day weekend!

So I am now finished moving out of my old house, and now begins the process of unpacking everything and going through all of the "fun" associated with that business.  Anyways, I thought I would fill everyone in on what I am working on during my 5 minutes of free time a day, and what my future plans are:

  • Daemons!  I got a large amount of them to compliment all of my Chaos stuff.  I bought a bunch of the new Nurgle toys to go with my Death Guard, and a bunch of just about everything else to go with the Word Bearers I will be working on.  I have a Battle Box and a few other kits already for waiting to be built once the new codex drops, and I will be absolutely buying a large amount of the new stuff once it comes out as well.  I plan to buy about 3 of the starter boxes, which leads me on to my next project...

  • Fallen Angels.  I plan to build me a Fallen Angels army, which will be built using the new Dark Angels codex whenever that comes out.  I plan to use a lot of the actual Dark Angels kits, but also some Chaos stuff as well.  I'll have some squads who truly fell to Chaos, as well as some who rebelled during the Heresy because they thought Lion El'Johnson fell.  If you think that it's wrong, read more into the Dark Angels.  There are several different things that have been mentioned in different books, short stories, etc, that sheds some very interesting insight into their true history.

  • The table!  Now that I am moved in and in a more static set up, I plan to actually finish the table.  I have a friend who is going to help me get it all painted and mounted, so it shouldn't be too bad once I actually put forth the effort, haha.

Anyways, I now have unavoidable wife aggro, so I must complete more things on the Honey-do list that is 5 miles long...

So I need a favor

So this painting comp at my FLGS has started!!!  The prize is one of the giant Vallejo paint sets, with the carrying case and brushes and what not.  If everyone could help me win by voting for my Blight Drone, I would be GREATLY appreciative!  The competition is meh, but a couple of the models are good.  The photos are shady, so the picture above is what I submitted!  Anyways, go to the following Facebook page and vote for my Blight Drone:
