Have the house finally settled in so I can start back to getting my hobby time caught up. So much to do!

Uploading stuff to photobucket this morning for updates. So far this year I have picked up a few more necrons and hope to finish them fast! I also have a couple boxes of bikers and even more lootas.

To wrap it up, I think I am going to knock out some nids for a buddy. We have grown tired of killing his primer green models.

Got a few pics of the Lictor I have started. Decided to do it with just thick washes and really liked how it is turning out!

Primed white then thinned out Flash Gitz for the base coat.

Image

Moved on to agrax wash, then mixed agrax with red, then highlights with Flash Gitz and Flash Gitz + White.

I need to make a base for it tonight and stick the other leg back on. Other than that I am happy with how its looking and my buddy is excited.

It was about 75% Agrax and 25% Vallejo Red. I cant remember exactly which red by name. I put them in a little cap and mixed them with my brush. It really thinned it out and hit all of those interior spots.

Interesting idea... i'm just wary of trying to mix citadel paints due to pots.

The new woman is better than the ex woman. She has been on my butt about painting models the last few week, she is pushing me to paint more. I may have lucked out with this one!

Started work on another warboss that someone tossed in a box of random ork bits that I picked up off Ebay last year. I figured it would be fun to compare this one to the first AOBR warboss that I painted since it was my very first model.

It looks like we may be snowed in the next couple days so I should get something done!

Wow for snowdays in the south. We had 10" of snow here which broke all sorts of records. I managed to finish up the base coats on my warboss and am going to knock out a defense line for the boyz!

Cutting out the fronts, I plan to put them on small bases as I get time.

It hasn't snowed like this since I was a kid.

We were supposed to get half a foot here, but didn't get anywhere near that. My son's upset, he was hoping for a snow day.

Yea, any snow here is traumatic. It finally melted off this weekend and is supposed to be 70 degrees tomorrow! Oh then Wednesday we have another 1/4" of ice and two inches of snow coming.

Sigh.

At least I am finished with all my home repairs and past my midterms so Ill now have a bit more hobby time. The first few months of this year have been too busy!
