Painting Plan For The Next Couple of Weeks

I am being strict with myself when it comes to painting so I am sharing my plans to give me motivation to stick to them.

I had been considering making this a Google Docs file and share it with my hobby friends, but I think I am more likely to update this blog more often.

I have a few projects I am working for some friends, I am not a commission painter, I am not good enough to do that, I don’t work quickly enough to do it, and more importantly, I do this for fun, not for profit and if I made money off it, I wouldn’t find it fun anymore.

  1. Acastus Knight Porphyrions for Adeptus Titanicus
  2. Secret Project
  3. Ghazghull Thraka
  4. Death Riders of Krieg
  5. Tempestus Scions and Taurox Prime
  6. Lords of Contagion from Dark Imperium
  7. Death Korps of Krieg Infantry Squad
  8. Poxwalkers from Dark Imperium

So a few thinks for Niki and one for Alexander and another for a friend who has asked me to keep it secret, but its just one figure and won’t take too long to paint up. I want to get the first phase of the Death Korps of Krieg done by Christmas, after the Death Riders and Infantry Squad are a Quartermaster, two more squads of Infantry and three Commissars.

The Knights have been stuck on my desk for a few weeks, but I just keep putting them off, probably because its not likely that I will actually play with them much given the controversy about their rules.

The Tempestus Scions are for an army idea that I have had for a long time but has been kind of difficult to do until now. The idea is lead by an Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor leading a force of Millitarium Tempestus with a small contingent of Adepta Sororitas possibly with an Imperial Knight for heavy support.

And of course the Poxwalkers and Lords of Contagion are to add to the Death Guard army I have.

What I am Modelling

Its not been the most productive week, I have been of a low mood, so I didn’t even go near my painting desk for a few days, but I did get some stuff done.
The first thing were the Galvancic Servohaulers that I got with Warhammer 40,000 Conquest. These were done with Contrast Paint to get the red effect on the body, I am still figuring out how best to use these paints, but I think this worked out ok.

Then I finished off the Hetaeron Guard for the Legio Custodes which will serve as Wardens in 40k. I did seven of them, five armed with Custodian Spears, one with a Pyrithite Spear and one with an Adrasite Spear. 

And finally I finished up a squad of Death Korps of Krieg Infranty, which is made up of a mixture of Advancing Infantrymen and Firing Infantrymen.

What I am Reading

Only three short stories read this week, I finished The Flesh Tithe by Miles A Drake, which I thought was a wonderful story with a nice little twist at the end.

Then I read Soulfuel by Rob Sanders which was a good little read, and very fast paced, fitting a lot into so few words, not my favourite story of what I have been reading so far, but still good.

And last night I read Signal to Noise by CZ Dunn which I enjoyed a lot, it was a really good story with a cool link back to the Heresy and an interesting look at the Orders Dialogus of the Adepta Sororitas.

I am going to continue reading the stories of the Adepta Sororitas over the next few weeks, which I have been really enjoying a lot, because I want inspiration for my Sisters of Battle.

What I am Playing

On Thurdsay night we played a couple of games of Tsuro: Phoenix Rising and Megan won both of these quite easily and then on Friday night, me and Lindsay played a game of Patchwork which she easily won.

What I am Backing

Nowt at the moment, still waiting on Car Wars Sixth Edition to launch.

But Tsuro: Phoenix Rising arrived, which was a surprise as I really wasn’t expecting it until much later on because the fulfilment partner are usually not that great at getting stuff out quickly.

I am expecting on Monday to get three projects from Steve Jackson Games, Three Mini Expansions for Munchkin, Ogre Battlefields, and Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2.

What I am Cooking

Does a Pot Noodle count, cause that’s all I have managed

What I am Spending

Not a lot, but I did manage to buy a Khorne Christmas jumper form Merchoid.
