The last two weeks have flown by with hobby time taking the back burner. School has started for the Kiddo, and this past weekend I missed out on the monthly Millennium tournament in favor of supporting my wife and her sister as they tackled a 5K Zombie Mud Run. I was content hanging out with my daughter as a spectator. Aside from that, Gymnastics for my girl has also started up and I've gotten my fair share of weird looks from the other parents when I pull out the Citadel Paint Station and start working on Night Goblins. Hey, I have an hour to burn and things to do, stop giving me dirty looks.
In terms of hobby stuff, I've managed to start up a few projects for the GT and I've also found a few that help me procrastinate. If you're interested in more Orc and Goblin stuff, check it out below the fold.
First off, Night Goblins. Thank you Grubnards! I'm going with the 2 tone look. Red tops, with dark grey/black robes. I was leaning that way, but after those examples you put up, I was pushed over the edge.
One new things I tried with these guys is using actual airbrush paint (red) from Hobby Lobby. I gotta say that the airbrush specific paint makes everything super easy. Easy cleanup, easy flow, no clogs.
Tangentially related, I just received a pair of precision stainless steel gaming dice from Amber Rix's Kickstarter project. I missed out one her Precision Machine Dice Kickstarter (which are now being produced), but I thought these dice were still pretty cool.
While it's not for the GT, I just couldn't put down the following models. The animosity Orcs looks great and they were a blast to put together.
Gorbad Ironclaw is another one of those badass models that I couldn't put down. Here's one thing that I don't miss: Pewter. At least the gaps were small, and the model is properly weighted.
Here's a little something I'm working that I'm hoping to feature on the blog in the coming months. This is my Necron sigil that I made for my emerging Necron army. I've been experimenting with a number of color schemes, but I haven't settled on one yet.
