Have not been on much, nor have much to report. Combination of work, lack of stuff which has led to lack of motivation....

Picked up three captain masters for half off. Not sure they are even usable, but just trying to start up again. Got a marches, rites and relics. Got the marches captain built and primed today. Really hard to work without a good light.

I actually don't know if I'd still be able to paint without my daylight lamp. :shock: I got so accustomed to it and it makes painting so much easier!

What colour scheme are you going to do on those marines? I really don't remember if you were working on a chapter already...

I haven't decided, I have multiples going for a combined company for my daughter...well, it was for her before she turned 14 and lost interest. Now we cook together and watch movies that her mom won't :)

I haven't worked on her marines for a while, but here is their WIP thread

I did get a Kickstarter for the A-Case in the mail. I put one of the three I ordered together last night. It is light. Has a completely different feel from my table war mini case. Say it will hold 300+ minis. I will test it when my stuff comes.

Is that a case for magnetized models? Interesting design.

It is. Fairly light. Case itself is nice. Metal frame that goes inside has exposed edges. Not sharp but not rounded either. It is all metal, so you can hang models upside down if you want. Not sure why you would but you can.

Thats a pretty ingenious way to transport the newer GW models with all their fragile finicky bits!

Not sure about the airport, would easily fit under the seat, but security could be a pain.

Moving to my next temp house, but will get my stuff on Tues/Wed. We will be in that house a few months (probably) and then move to our more perm place. We are Sooooo ready to get out of the little duplex we are in. Plenty of room, but it is getting cold and our winter stuff is in the moving boxes. Oh, and yeah....my toys :)

Am out of town again, at a 10 day course for the new job. But the good news is that I am finally in a house. My stuff is there and in two weeks I get my stuff that was in long term storage...i.e. My tools that I didn't take to Germany with me. Yeah...Terrain. I still don't have a computer up...mine is dead. Will need a new one, so pictures are still difficult.

Thus far, the garage is full of my plastic along one wall and the other is awaiting my tools. I have a storage area in the basement that will become a game room, but is is bad right now...not even lights, bare wood, exposed ducts etc. Not big, but big enough for my old table that also went in storage.

Big issue will be time. I am going to have about 1/3 to 1/4 as much time as I used to. Lots of travel now. Once I get a computer will post some before pics and after.

I have not picked up a brush in about a month and have not played a game of 8th yet. I am hoping Sunday I can go down to the local game store (about 20 minutes) and play a game. Read the rules. Not a huge difference there, but no clue about building lists in the new edition and it looks like everyone is different. Gonna be a hard road for my little evil space elves.
