Things here have been quiet because I've been doing some soul searching. The new edition has breathed life into my tyranids and stole some thunder from my DE and GK. Flyers, allies, and fortifications are all things that tickle my fancy both on the table and with hobby projects so I've been searching for inspiration as to which projects to tackle first.
Here's a list of projects I want to tackle over the next 6 months in no particular order:
Tyranids - repaint and base the whole collection with the new scheme, build an aegis and possibly bastion and skyshield
GK - allies, retool the Mordrak Shock list, aegis. Really going to go nuts with allies for these guys as it gives me an excuse to try units and models I've been watching. Necrons, marines w/ stormtalon, new dark angels, guard, thunderwolves, all fun mini-armies to collect and add to the GK.
DE - retool the foot list and eldar allies. This will probably be my project for DaBoyz GT 2012 depending on their final stance for the format.
Chaos - the first army I ever collected, I still have my 2nd ed models and would love to rebuild them with some big cultist blobs.
The game change refers to the format of the blog. I used to write up current projects and talk about upcoming tournaments. Last week, a topic in the local forum got really ugly and a small, vocal group came out villainizing me as as "WAAC powergamer douchebag" for buying and painting models for specific tournaments. I learned a lot of interesting things about the local group and perception. I realize bloggers in general will have skeptics and haters, but it really rocked my world. Someone who doesn't blog but shows up to a tournament with new models is a dedicated hobbyist. If you do the same and blog about it, you're a list tailoring WAAC powergamer. Anyways, I won't go into the ugly details as I've tried to keep this blog as a positive influence with hobby, theory, and execution. However, I will be changing the format to reduce drama in my own life. As such, articles will be written on past projects and events instead of current projects and upcoming events.
Thanks for sticking with the blog and understanding. I hope to get some hobby and tactics articles up over the next few weeks.
