DaBoyz GT, things just keep getting crazier and crazier. On top of a shrinking timeline, last week I got the flu for the first time in 5 years, Millennium Games hosted DaBoyz GT Primer, and this week they're hosting a Kill Team lock-in tournament. I lost a couple painting days when I had the flu so now I'm trying to squeeze 7 hours of painting into each day around work and my pregnant wife.
I finished my 4th terminator (above) and I'm really starting to like the way they're coming out. The good news is I'm getting more comfortable with the blending and lighting effects. The bad news is my attention to detail is starting to take more time on each model. I just have one terminator left with the brotherhood banner (ugh!) and then I will base the whole unit.
I also finished up two more strike knights for the Kill Team lock-in.
Battle Ready Figs bases (click the pic for a larger version).
So, with 5 weeks left I have 4 more marines, 1 terminator, techmarine, 2 transports, and a bunch of henchmen left to paint and base. I also need to finish 2 more tables to meet the quota of 6 I volunteered to provide for the GT. It would be cool if I could make a new display board to match the army, but that may not be realistic at this point. I also picked up a moonscape set so I have real craters for my explosions and I have a set of flickering LED tea lights I'd love to use if I can paint up some smoke clouds. I intend to write an article about flickering smoke clouds for wrecks using the LED tea lights. One of the guys at the ATC last May had them and it brought a whole new level of reality to the table so I decided my GK must have them!
Anyways, thanks for sticking with me during this period of no content on the blog. I put together a team with some of the local guys for the GT Team Event, so I can promise 9 really nice batreps (3 from the team event, 6 from the GT) in the end of October and into November.
