Yup! I'm gonna work on something every day, so this will be a nice project log. So far, I've worked on something every day this month as part of my silent resolution. I'll find pics to post of whatever wip stuff I have going on.

I'm mostly a modeller, so my work is going to mainly feature conversions. I'm also involved in the Army in a Year thread, so I'll have plenty of painting to do as well. I am going to really do my best to work on 3 different armies for a different system at the same time: Dark Eldar, Skaven and Trollbloods. I'm probably going to fall behind somewhere, unless I start using my airbrush.

So, I'm @dakkadez on twitter. I don't use twitter, so that will be a learning experience as well.

I kept working last night, and got a Duke Sliscus conversion going on. I'm still debating over replacing the head. I've got some details to add, and of course I will build him a crazy base. I'd like to make something techy, in line with his ability to make all Raiders and Venoms deep striking.

I'm really excited about painting this one, I kinda struggled with the other models I painted this month. I did paint that Marine in an hour...;)

I did some more work on the Skaven tonite. I layered the purple and the teeth, as well as added some green to the warpstone and tubing. I'm really enjoying painting this model.

That is REALLY cool, I think changing the dukes head might be a good idea, I like it alright but it would excel with other heads, maybe a helmet

Yesterday I did something real fun: Organizing! I have a couple boxes full of Spess Muhreenz, and I sorted almost all of it out. Yes, I like organizing. I like having everything where I know where it is, and huge unorganized boxes of stuff frustrate me. I have trays for my bits, and they are all separated. I'm talking left arms here, right arms there, this kind of bolter in here, this kind of bolter in there. It's like OCD.

Omg I have to do the same thing with my bits (mostly Ogre) With everything else, I'm the same way. My primer labels have to be facing out and everything is grouped by what they are ie. no primer on the basing shelf, no bits near the Stripping and priming shelf etc. It's a sickness :P

People usually freak out when they see how much stuff I have, and then to find out it's organized is brain asplode.
