132nd Update

Added a few units to the army. 1 squad of Guardsmen (Militarumen?) 1 command squad, and 5 Veterans (more on them later)


decided my veterans needed some heavy armor. so Scion body and legs meet guardsmen arms and head. If anyone has bothered remembering my models they might remember my paint scheme. The veterans have it backwards. Darker fatigues lighter armor, and MOAR ORANGE! (its the offseason deal with it)

right now in my army these guys are fullfilling the role of Command Squad, and so the five guys make sense, for now. 3 with lasguns, 1 grenade launcher, and the Vox operator with chainsword. when i finish the unit out there will be an actual sergeant, and will either add a melta gun, plasma gun or a flamer of some sorts.

Heavy Weapons squad. had some left over paint on my brush so started attacking these guys as well. This pic shows the gun painted in gray as well, however i decided to not continue that with the others. so black gun, metal bits, but the shield is painted gray (AND ORANGE!)
so this is what i have done since i last checked in. not much but that is life right now. Next on my list of 'wants' is another box of guardsmen and scions to finish the vets, a command squad (I want to use the cloaks in the scion box for all these guys) and maybe another Russ. after that i need some hydras, some sentinels and maybe another Russ or 20. but that may not happen until my birthday, in June, so we will see what happens.

Checking In (warning a lot of text no pictures)

So I suck, lets get that out of the way. Reasons I suck.

1. Forgot my gmail password and so I couldn't log on
2. Took me several months to figure the old one out (couldn't change any of the settings without said password)
3. Haven't posted in forever
4. Haven't done anything hobby related in months (gaming)
5. Work is kicking my ass and right now devoting time to painting is too much like work.
6. I have a big trip to Germany coming up so I have no money to spend.
7. Since the new year i have had 1 weekend when i stayed relatively close to home without major events going on.

My boss at work decided i needed more responsibilities without telling me what they are or explaining wtf I am supposed to be doing so work is stressful but 'good for my career'.

I have two articles planned atm. One will be a 'whats on my desk' 132nd focused (they grew slightly over Christmas) and the second will be an update to things that i want for Warhammer Total War (WTW) which i will try to get Bob to weigh in on.

on a few hobby related notes. I don't like the direction fantasy is headed and agree with pretty much everything Bob has said. Two what is with GW making models that have the tiniest connection to the base? (Bloodthrister I am looking at you). 3. for any of the Steam freaks out there check out Mordheim (based on the tabletop game) it is pre-release early access right now but still fun. I think it will be worth the 30 bucks when i comes out full blown.

anyway back to my work dungeon. peace.
