Knibbler's #thedailypaint

Post by knibbler » Tue Mar 20, 2012 5:03 pm

So along with my recent urge to paint more i would start up a daily paint thread.

You'll come to see from me:
Chaos Space Marines of the Bleak Brotherhood
Dark Eldar
the odd Necron miniature
as well as miniatures from Reaper, Enigma, Tor Gaming, Wyrd and others...

I'll be posting before and after shots so you can see the progress of each daily paint I do.

....
..
...
Starting tomorrow. ;)

So my first day of Daily Paint and I've failed already, though not actually my fault.

The 'BNIB' Talos Pain/Chronos Parasite Engine I ordered arrived today, flat packed in bubblewrap, lacking in instructions so I am unable to assemble my DE model of awesome.

Sorry for the slacking in pictures..
Had a very busy few weeks, and this Friday is what would have been my sons 1st birthday so having hard times trying to motivate myself to even lift a brush.
Hopefully, once Easter is out the way, things may settle down and i'll get my passion come back and there'll be fresh pictures every day.

In other news, I did phone up GW on the 24th March asking for assembly instructions for my Talos.. Needless to say I'm still waiting for these to come through. I've already got my color scheme sorted, just waiting to put to damn thing together.. I'll probably give another couple days before phoning them again, or just buy a second Talos, this time with instructions.. I'm not sure if this is the usual waiting period for instructions from GW?

Knibbler I'm so sorry to hear about your son, that's devastating. I can understand not being motivated to do anything.

I'm not sure why GW is taking so long, usually they just email a pdf.

I did phone GW te following day after the initial phone call just to make sure they didn't miss-spell my email and I was told they had my correct email address already and that they were still looking for instructions.. :S
