Dez #theweeklypaint 2014

Hello, and welcome to a new year in a new subforum!

This year, I'm going to try and work on my existing armies. I have the attention span of a kitten, and I keep getting excited about all these new ideas and paint schemes for new armies. The reality of it is, I don't have time for all that. So this year, I'm going to go into my Storage Area of Doom and built and paint what's in there...for the most part.

Skaven. I've started Skaven multiple times, and they would have been my first WFB army I'm sure. Many years ago, when we were discussing starting Fantasy with my old club, one of the guys bailed out and had a couple hundred dollars worth of Warriors of Chaos he sold me for $40. It was essentially 3 Battalions and some other extras. How could I not? So my dreams of starting a Skaven army got put on hold. I then sold what Skaven stuff I had. I started them again within the past few years, but was forced to sell them again when I needed money more than Ratmen. This year, I'm going to go gangbusters with this army. No more delays, no more selling. In fact, I'll be doing a bit of acquiring.

Orks. I have lots to paint still, and more to repaint. I've got boxes of stuff that still needs to be built. I've got a moving box full of just conversions that need finishing. So Orks is gonna get the treatment this year too! I'll probably be unable to help myself get some new stuff.

Warriors of Chaos. I've got stuff that just needs some paint, or needs fixing.

Death Guard. I've got some stuff that just needs paint, or needs fixing. I've also got some more units to build. I've got lots of FW Plague Marines yet to be built.

So, what are you all doing this year?

I'm going to start videoing this year too. May as well catch up with the times! I went to school for interactive web design, and I haven't used it since 2004. Be nice to take advantage of it, haha!

I've also resolved to start updating my blog again.

I have been chugging out the work lately...but it's just been repairing or building stock Skaven models. I haven't really felt the need to post pics, ya know? That's what people want to see though. Later today, I'll have some pics of Killa Kanz I painted. In a few days, once I've completely built and taken the mold lines of my Skaven, I'll update this with some pics.

In other news, I went to a local game auction on Sunday and looted! Came home with 55 Valejo paints for $20, Cadwallon: City of Thieves for $35, Battlestar Galactica board game for $20, a full Orcs & Goblins army for $45. A Forge World Thunderbolt Pilot, Ogryn killing Dkok (both Games Day Exclusives) and Earthshaker Gun Emplacement for $35. A TON of Orks including close to 100 boys, a Battlewagon, Truck, 6 Killa Kanz, 5 Lootaz, 5 Nobz, Assault on Black Reach, a Lobba and tons of other stuff for a combined total of $140. I picked up several hundred dollars worth of Sisters of Battle for $35. I also picked up some Arcane Ruins, a big pile of books/codex, and who knows what else. There were a lot of people there, I did lose some of the live auctions but I have to put the brakes on sometimes ;)

Ordered a new airbrush yesterday. I'm going to need it, I have a bunch of projects to finish up. I left mine in Simple Green for....a year? I cleaned it, but it just doesn't work anymore even though none of the bushings disintegrated. Ordered another Master Series G44, so at least I have spare parts.

You can get them fairly cheap. I purchased another Master Series G44, which is perfect for minis. It comes with 3 different needles for very fine lines. It costs $39.99 on Amazon, and seeing as I used my points I got it for free.

Harbor Freight is a great place to pick up an air compressor, just make sure you get a moisture trap. Get a mask and gloves while you are there!

I still stink at fine work, but I love my airbrush for priming and basecoats.
