Well, after all that assembly goodness, I took a much-needed break and spent the weekend with my wife. We hit a local historical site, drove around and went shopping a bit and then spent Sunday starting to unpack all our stuff in the new condo. Sleeping in has never felt better!
Model wise, I’ve built two more Skorne models: a Cyclops Brute and a Razorwurm. Yes, the one piece Razorwurm has pins. Two of them, holding him to his base. The Brute’s shield feels small on him. I may see about picking up a Karax shield bit and doing something to give the Brute more of a tower shield or something. Right now it just feels small for his tall, lean body.
I also stripped some Retribution models. Kaelyssa, Griffon and Gorgon and a Ghost Sniper all went into my Super Clean, and are now in Acetone. The Chimera I have was NIB, so I’ve cleaned up its mold lines (ugh) and started re-working the pose. He’s a super-fast arcnode, so he’ll look it.
The To Do list:
Strip pVlad, Drago and Beserker
Base and assemble the Cygnar Hunter
Base and re-assemble my Striders + UA (so they can be painted soon).
Get some Instant Mold for making extra sets of Myrmidon hands (so I don’t have to magnetize the things).
Prime my Khador and Skorne models.
Paint a Forsaken (to polish off a basic 15pt Legion Battle Box army).
Paint a TRAINBOAT test model:
I snagged a blister of 6 frigates for $10 from the LGS the other day, and they are awesome. I’m very excited to paint up some of these!
I’ll likely get a Battleship next.
Paint a Directorate test model:
I have the starter fleet pictured here. I’m not going to do green, but was thinking instead of blue.
I also like the idea of trimming the flight stand so models are at varying heights. Really plays on the 3D-ness of space battles!
Anyway, that’s the plan for now. I’ve got a few things to assemble, and then all the conversion tools go away for a bit and all the painting stuff comes out.
Retribution WIP pics tonight or tomorrow!!
