I can’t believe that almost two weeks have passed since any kind of post. In my defense I’ve not actually done much in the way of modelling due to other commitments – yes mostly social 🙂 I always find at this time of year that November seems to be more busy than December as many of the people who I know tend to have family commitments so cram as much into November as possible.
I have made a few in-roads into my army however. The scouts are assembled, although they require extensive conversion and filling – the regular scouts (the ones with bolters) are bloody horrific to assemble. The legs and torso’s don’t really tie up correctly which limits the assembly possibilities.
Currently I’m assembling the pack of 14 Blood Claws – the chainswords make them a bit more time consuming to put together than Grey Hunters sadly.
As a slight variation I putchased an ‘Aegis Defense’ boxed set – the one that has the quad-linked autocanons and lots of barriers. The actual molding on these pieces are fantastic – probably the best that I’ve come across on a GW kit. Should be good practice for airbrushing and some of the weathering techniques within the ForgeWorld masterclass book before I attempt them on a tank.
Pretty much nothing else to say. I have two days off at the end of this week, so am hopeful that I might get my Blood Claws assembled and perhaps the Long Fangs. I’ll then go back and bulk out the packs using some of the spare models that I’ve got to give me a greater variety of options. The current aim is to have an assembled 1000 point army ready to play with for Christmas.
