March Updates

Friday, March 9, 2012


Lately, I've been working on a few different projects spread across all 3 of my armies. Now that my Land Raider Crusader has been properly magnetized, I've started on painting some of the details. I've still got a ways to go, but above is a shot of the internal control center of the tank. I've also applied the base colors to the exterior. Still weighing wether or not to try a checkered pattern over the white area or simply go with Raven Guard iconography:




I know I said Necrons were next, but I lied. I am still working on painting the first Warrior squad and their bases are almost finished, I just ended up trying a second version of the paint scheme in an attempt to speed up the process. I know I'm going with the blue, metal, black colors, I'm just mulling over a few minor details before I batch paint the remaining 15 models.




While I was deliberating, I thought to myself why not finish assembling my Harlequin troop for my Dark Eldar army. So I did, and it was a pleasure working with these fine metal figures after going through the brittle Wrack squad. I now have all 8 finished, including a Death Jester, Shadowseer, Troop Master, and 2 with fusion pistols. Running the entire unit, all with Kiss upgrades, clocks in at 252 I believe but packs a mean punch. I will certainly be testing this squad in my first few games with Dark Eldar and more often than not they will serve as a delivery method for the first Webway Portal touting haemonculus. Speaking of which, here's a couple old school models that are ready to prime:


I also finally managed to finish assembling my Archon and Lilith models. Haven't made a list yet that uses Lilith, but either way she'll make a fine Succubus or Hekatrix; what a fantastic model.


You also probably noticed by now that I made some changes to the blog. I really liked blogger's new dynamic views when they first came out, but it wasn't until recently that you could add sidebar widgets so I thought I would give it a shot. They still don't offer a feature for custom widgets or even a basic blogroll, but I trust they'll have solutions for those coming out soon. In the meantime, it's been kinda fun trying out the different views and ways to display content. I especially like the Flipcard view sorted by Date as a nice visual alternative to the blog archive. I realize these templates are not at all tablet friendly so I've added a link to the mobile version of the site on the top bar. I'll still probably make small tweaks here and there as I test things out, but if you're not viewing from a real computer (sorry iPad) I suggest going with the mobile template for the time being.
