So it's time to start up again, now that the Christmas lunches and package bonanze is over with. I've had a nice time seeing all the famile on both sides, but by now I just really need to relax a bit - Preferably with my little plastic and resin models.
Before I get started though, I'm pretty psyched that I got my first Horus Heresy model; Calas Typhon!
I freakkin' love this model - It's so much better than the GW equivalent, and I will definitely be painting this guy up in the coming months. I will wait a bit though, as I don't have any cultists and/or zombies, and without those, he's pretty much not going to see the table.
Meanwhile I had my bikes to look at. I got started with drilling holes in the sides, so I could magnetize the weapons on the bikes. The MKIV bikes that I'm using comes with boltguns and plasmaguns per standard, so I had two weapons to look at for now, while I'm ordering the flamers and meltas home. I found a nice spot just between the tire and the armor where the magnet could sit without much drilling, and it worked perfectly:
And then, after having drilled the whole in all 40 weapons (10 bikes x 2 weapons x 2 sides)
and both sides on all 10 bikes, I found out that I didn't have nearly enough magnets. In fact, I'm about 40 magnets short. So now, I have to wait for my new order of magnets to ship before I can continue. This is after 6 of the 10 bikes needs to have 1 arm magnetized and the remaining 4 riders needs to have both arms magnetized as well. Shucks.
So, to kill some time, I'm painting up the 25 cultists I have laying around: 20 from the Dark Vengeance set and 5 extra that I got along with the Typhus model:
These are my bad conscience as well, as they have been lying in a drawer ever since I started the hobby. The Dark Vengeance set was my first ever 40k purchase, so it's about time they got painted up.
