I have a massive update here. I've been gaming, painting and assembling very productively, so its hard to know where to start!
Firstly, after a break, I have come back to paint some more Slayers. Now the deadline for this unit over at Bugman's is approaching soon, so I wanted to get cracking. Plus I want to field them in larger unit, so there was some incentive. Plus, they aren't too hard. So I did another 5 Slayers, and all I have left to do is 2 Slayers for the Bugman unit painting challenge. Not bad. After the new ones I'll have 25 all done. Not too sure if I'll jump in and paint some more, but we shall see.
Now you'll have to forgive the lighting, as my setup has changed, and I'm still trying to get it right. Hopefully the pics will be alright.
Very happy with them. Just wish I was good using them! I do have the last 2 on the painting table at the moment drying after there first coat, so hopefully it won't take too long to finish them. Then I can finally take a unit photo of my Slayer unit. Should be a good incentive!
Next up I have a short battle. Its 40k, and since the new Space Marine codex came out, my friend started Dark Angels, so hating the idea of marines vs marines (unless its 30k), I took my Freebooter Orks. Now I have not posted any pics of them on here, so I might do so at a later stage. Either way, the stage was set for some serious pirate talking.
The game was some objective grab, for some strange arcane chance device, and there were three on the table. Our forces were roughly 1000pts. You can see the forces involved below (along with a half painted table!)
Most of my boyz here. Da Kaptin Oddgrum Dedeye, and his trusty Nobz unit, 20 Slugga boyz and 3 zzap guns (the old tracktor cannons)
One last thing before I sign off, When scouting around the wreckage of the battlefield after, my Big Mek found these old wrecks...
Anyways, back to painting!
