Finished my Goff Rocker. Pretty pleased with the result; still a few little touch-ups to do, but for my first Ork, I’m very happy, the skin is a lot of fun to highlight.
Finally got a chance to start painting my Goff Rocker. Ork skin is a lot of fun to paint. Still got a long way to go but not bad for an evening’s work.
Painting competition 2022 - Week 6:
After 4 weeks of no progress, thanks to Life™️, it felt good to finally make progress. Got most of the models primed and some base layers down. I’m going to miss the deadline for the competition, but I will see this project out.
Painting competition 2022 - Week 2:
Made some good progress this weekend; 21 models are done. That still leaves a squad and the truck. Aiming to have all the models built and primed by next weekend, leaving me about 4 weeks to paint them.
Painting competition 2022 - Week 1:
I didn’t make much progress this week, these models are very intricate and are taking me much longer than I expected to build. Hopefully, I’ll get more done next week, as I’m a little worried about missing that deadline at this pace.
This year I decided to take part in a “pick a random start collecting box and paint it” competition. I happen to pick the Genestealer-Cults box, which was the 4th largest. Which, as a slow painter, is scary. I now have 8 weeks to build, paint and present these models.
Finished reading: Deathwatch: Shadowbreaker (Warhammer 40,000) by Steve Parker 📚
4/5 - Good read, the plot is engaging, and the imagery is well thought out. I was previously interested in Deathwatch, and this book has only interested me further. What surprised me a little was the interactions between marines of different chapters, which only adds to the depth of their character. Some basic familiarity with 40k, the primary loyalist chapters, the Inquisition and many Xenos factions is essential to get the most out of this book.
Finished reading: The Devastation of Baal by Guy Haley 📚
4/5 - Excellent book, the descriptions of both the Blood Angles and Tryranids are amazing. I would highly recommend it to anyone who’s a fan of either faction (or space marines and Warhammer in general).
Finally got round to finishing some test models for my new Tyranids army. Not all of them are finished, but I think I’ve narrowed down what scheme I want to do.
I finished reading Caves of Ice by Sandy Mitchell 📚
3/5 - It’s hard to talk about this book without spoiling it. I enjoyed it a lot and ended up reading it surprisingly quickly. I’m very tempted to start a “small” Imperial Guard collection for Ciaphas Cain and friends.
I finished reading For the Emperor by Sandy Mitchell 📚
4/5 - A great entry into the world of Warhammer books, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It conveys the grim darkness of the universe while being comical and approachable. I highly recommend it. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series
