Sneak Peek Week
Posted by hyv3mynd
Well my endeavor to repaint 1,000pts worth of Nids continues this week. We also played a 2v2 game last night which ended up being Nids and Necrons vs Orks and Guard. The full batrep, tournament reports, and hobby articles won't get published until next week as I'm pushing harder than ever to get the Nids finished. 1,000pts painted in 3 weeks will be my most ambitious project to date. The good news for bug fans is our local tournament schedule is changing and it's looking like I will be taking them out two more times for a 1,500pt Throne of Skulls style event net month and possibly a 1,250pt lock in as well. My webway based Dark Eldar just don't scale down well and there's too much anti-GK vitriol.
Anyways, here's some sneak peaks of the current projects.
Here's my 1,000pt force base coated. With only 15 models, no tervigons, genestealers, or hive tyrant, it's completely different than anything I've ever played. At least it plays really fast hah.
I'm also going a totally new direction with the bases, sorry Ikterus hah. The colors are so bright that all my other basing ideas were looking too dark. Instead, I'm going with an arctic glacier/snow/ice theme that will also be very bright. It's a totally different feel than my other armies, but also a much needed change so I don't burn out on painting and basing.
The bases are airbrushed and covered in water effects. Once they've dried I will add some broken ice chunks and snow. With only 5 days left, I'm kinda winging it so I hope they come out well. Here's my inspiration.
Anyways, there's your sneak peaks for the week. Full articles will follow net week.
