The last hobby related thing I did was...

Post  chrispcarter on Thu Mar 03, 2011 2:11 am

Thought I might make this thread my contribution to the forum, as I've seen similar ones take off quite well in other places.

Basically it's a chance to brag about how much modelling / painting / gaming you've been doing (or to lament about how little)!

I'll get things started: The last hobby related thing I did was last night, when I put the last bits of rubble on the base and attached the last couple of purity seals to the armoured sarcophagus of Dreadnought Reclusiarch Tiberius Vicinius, the Venerable Dreadnought I have converted to a Chaplain for use either as a Venerable Dreadnought, a generic Chaplain Dreadnought, or Chaplain-Dreadnought Titus from IA9, depending on the game I'm playing.

I've been pottering on with him for a while, and the idea had been bouncing around in my head for years (even before FW had done one), but when the Venerable Dread kit came out I saw that the arched armour plates were perfect for Chaplain use. I green stuffed a normal SM helmet to give it a skull like mouth piece (not sure how well this has turned out) and did various other bits of kitbashing, and I'm fairly pleased with the result. I need to spray him again and then I can start painting (ha!), I'll put pictures up if I get the chance.

What has everyone else been up to lately?

last hobby related thing I did was finish painting a rue scale Deathwatch Marine Brother Memnon.

I'm, really happy wit hw he turned out.

I've also got the bits together to build a fire happy Dark angels Devi & a grenade happy Space wolf assault dude.

Just for my own collection, but you guys ve come up with some very colourful characters I thought I'd steal your ideas.

Also build a te scale DW libby, but he's not quite finished.

Anyway, enough talk, I'm going to my daughter now x

Enjoy Dan Smile

Last thing I did was yesterday when I read through the leaked copy of the GK codex... looks like they should be fun to play, unforgiving though.

Yesterday I list-bashed the GK leak a little (Draigo, a Librarian 10 Paladins and a Dreadknight - legal army, 13 models, 1500 pts!) and bought an Ironclad Dreadnought from ebay (28% off, thank you ebay).

Sitting in the lab taking readings while having my netbook on the wireless has cost me dearly this week, last gaming related thing i did was buy a massive (bout 4,000 point)
IG epic army off ebay for £65! Monday i bought some kasrkin too, not 100% why just was browsing ebay while waiting for the readings to finish and couldnt help but bid!

Seen lots of other goodies i want but i realy shouldnt bid...lots more readings to take this week though so not sure what will happen in my boredom!

I received and undercoated (on the sprues) my new Ironclad yesterday, haven't started assembling it yet though as unfortunately Ewan wasn't content to watch dad assemble his miniatures and demanded cuddles instead!

Gonna head to GW during my lunch break for a hope at a peek at the final GK 'dex.

It seems I'm the only one doing this but I will keep posting away until it catches on!

Over the weekend I assembled an Ironclad Dreadnought, then realised I wanted to magnestise the assault launchers and hunter-killer missiles, which I went back and did after assembly. Would have been much easier if I'd done that before assembly, but you live and learn Razz

Nice one dan i bet he is awsome Smile

Ive spent a decent amount of my day (i realy should have been working) downloading and reading Rogue Trader / Dark Herasy / Deathwatch books! So many cool things, they realy are nice books Smile I found a site where sumone had uploaded loadz of the proper pdf's, not scanned versions, so have maybe half of all the books they have brough out for each of the 3 games with a realy high quality. If ya want some then just bring a USB stick to next DW game.

Nice to know someone is supporting Epic Smile

Like Dan, I've gotten some Grey Knights, but I deny any claims of shiny army syndrome as I already had a load of em!

In fact, all I've bought is Draigo and a couple of Nemesis Dreadknights - well, those and a handful of the new weapons to convert my old metal Strike Squads and Terminators with!

In fact I have about 2000 pts of Grey Knights now in new money, not bad really!

Driago is assembled and the NDKs are nearly done as well, once they are all finished the airbrush is gonna come out to get everyone boltgun metalled, methinks.

Augh Forgeworld, so good at making models but so bad at supplying them in proper conditions...

See what you can get with an angry call to customer services, remember "where there's blame, there's a claim".

I've just been trying to work out what skills and talents to give Brother Achellion today!

You'll have to show me how that goes as as you know Eisenhorn is one of my favourite characters.

I've been working on the different Badab War Characters and deciding how I will represent them for counts-as purposes, as some of them let you make variant armies and anything that lets me play a new way is fun Smile
