Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been blogging as much (but still keeping up on twitter and instagram), but I have been very busy Hobbying away. This is one of the first years where I left Nova, and immediately continued painting. I've also been extremely excited about the orks, and been planning and painting away some of the new units. First up is one of the new Jump Dragsta's!
Welcome back everyone! Another short update week. Since I am basically painting the same things as before, (and at a snails pace), I don't have too much to show you!
Finished the metallics on the next unit of 10...which are now going to turn into units of 14. (go figure!).
Welcome my friends to a most joyous day! I finally have power back to my compressor and paint booth in the garage, and can resume priming and spraying!
To start with, I picked four units from a squad to serve as a test bed. Trying to figure out what techniques will work best for painting their cream/green colors. (haven't tried this before). I kept the shoulders on the sprue because they are beautifully set up for spraying (I taped the ones that were facing the other direction). And also glued the bolters to a sprue for some fine tuned spraying! Then I primed everything grey, which is pretty annoying (because its hard to know what you primed), but works really well for everything.
The Deathguard Assembles for Battle!
Greetings my friend! I finished the main assembly of the deathguard force. (Minus the FW bits). Just in time for a test game on Saturday!
Doesn't look like much for 1850 points! (The point amounts for Nova changed this year, so I had to adapt). It's good I am bringing a new army, because the ork walkers don't work at 1850 points!
Welcome back my friends! Trying to get back into the habit of posting. Just a short update for you all today, as I'm slowly crunching along with the buildup of my #deathguard.
I look pretty ridiculous most of the time, as I am wearing the respirator to reduce the amount of fumes I breath in from all the plastic and super glue!
Greetings everyone! Hope the holidays and new year were kind to you all! Forgive my lack of posting, I tend to take a hobby hiatus in the later half of the year and recharge my batteries. (Usually by playing lots of video games!). That time is past, and I'm now in full production mode!
Image courtsey of Sons of Dorn. (I didn't paint this guys!). This is the scheme I am most likely going to try to emulate, with a bit of differences based on my own style.
But Greg what happened to emperors children???
Welcome one and all to the great "greggles gets his groove back" post. Where I go nuts painting and update more then once a week. Who would have thought!
Quick house update! Got a ceiling fan in the hobby room now. Super score! Now just need to patch all that drywall, buy new desks and completely rework it....but that is for another post! Lets talk about bases!
It's Monday! Surprise! Honda is taking a break while he deals with real life issues, so I've got a weekend update for you on the Nova Open stuff!
Check it out! I'm on the artist page now! It's for reals! I haven't been leaving in a Mek's dream! :) Also buy tickets. I'm required to say that for the children, puppies, and kittens. But seriously, I have gotten a bit of painting and work time in.
Welcome back one and all! Short update for you all this week. My normal hobby time (Wednesday and Weekend) got a bit side tracked. We went to Pittsburgh to visit Sarah's maid of honor and attend the art festival being held there. It was a wonderful time, but completely ate into all my hobby time! Not all was lost though, got some wonderful weathering shots, and picked up a wonderful new piece of art by Brianna Layman
It's a lovely piece, made with a variety of media types. Just loved the flow of it. It's now our second purchased piece in the house!
