The week before Christmas I found the December Painting Deathmatch and I was STOKED!!!! I love painting and modeling and know I need to improve my skills, what better way than to enter the Deathmatch. I decided on a converted WYSIWYG Old School LT, giving him a Devil's Claw and Laspistol, adding a female Grenade Launcher, Plasma Gun and Heavy Bolter Team.
I planned on working while we were at my in-laws for the week but my wife didn't pack my minis only my paints and brushes
I came back, with a couple days left and got to work. Luckily I primed them before I left! I've made a ton of trips to the local GW supplier for paint, washes and even more models (an Ogryn Bone 'Ed and Chimera) because I am already addicted! I really need to get into putting together my troops from their sprues but that isn't as fun, especially since I've added the following since I finished up for the semester:
(All Metal Old School)
6 Mortar Teams (yes 6!)
Missile Launcher Team
1997 Catachan Squad Box
Ordered: Straken, Nork, Harker, Marbo (but the idiot never put in the order before I left
Aegis Wall with Quad Gun
I think the Regiment is pretty complete other than a few Valkryies and another Chimera. I'm going to try and get the plastic troops assembled so I can have a few practice games before my first local tournament on Sunday (which will suck if I don't get in my special orders) I'm excited to get started playing and I just need to figure out what the best way to transport the Regiment will be. I don't want to spend a ton on a mini case but I might have to. Anyway hopefully I will have pictures up in the Deathmatch tomorrow as I based them tonight but stopped for the evening to watch the Eagles game. A few light touches, more hair pulling on the eyes and I'll be ready to go!
