Command Squad Update

Excited about the progress I made today! I believe I am still close to two weeks from finishing the command squad, as once the detail work starts everything slows down. However, I did finish the first coat of Khorne Red, and started on some of the second coat.

Librarian Pictures

The final pictures of my now fully completed Librarian. I still have some light work to finish on the base, but the model is finished for now. Arduous task to get this guy across the line, but I like how he turned out. Take a look!

FTGT Budget Challenge January Progress

Well, push has come to shove now in terms of getting my January models across the line. I can take solace in the fact that I have pretty much painted every time I got a chance, I just have been so busy that I haven't been able to work on anything much. Plus, the librarian took up about half of the month. I will still try to finish as close to schedule as possible but right now I will probably just manage to get the second coat of Khorne Red finished by the end of the week, and detail painting will take a week or more, so I will remain two weeks behind.

January Pledge Update

No pictures tonight unfortunately, but I wanted to give a quick update to the progress I've made on my January pledge, the command squad.

I have nearly finished priming all the pieces for the command squad. I completely assembled the standard bearer, which is not the normal way I build and paint minis, but I wanted to try something different.

Librarian Finished

Finally finished the Librarian! Still have to sand the base as you can see, but I am glad to get this model over the line. Lots of detail and tedious work, and I will probably go back later and touch up here and there, but it's finished for now. The mini is my December plan for FTGT's Hobby Budget challenge, so I'm a little behind schedule. I have already started on my January minis though, so hopefully I can stay on track for this month. More pictures to come later!

Saturday's Plans

Finally have a day with nothing else to do really except paint some minis (perks of being single haha). I am going to pick up the Gehenna's Gold I have been missing for awhile, and then I will be able to finish the Librarian. All that remains really is a lot of gold detail, washing some of the parchment, doing some of the purity seals, painting the staff arm and storm bolter hand with the mix coat of blue, and hitting the whole model with some touch up here and there.

Deathstorm Tyranids for sale

I have just listed all of the Deathstorm Tyranid models on eBay if you are interested. You can check them out here. Just a 5 day auction so don't miss out! Would be a great addition to an existing force or the foundation for a new force. Also includes the exclusive Spawn of Cryptus Broodlord.

January Budget Challenge

I had to push back my schedule a bit because the libby was taking longer than expected, so for January I will be doing the command squad. Moving everything back actually helps because I had an extra month on the back end. I'm missing some paint I need for the libby, so I went ahead and started on the command squad. Hopefully, I can get the paint on Thursday and finish the librarian by the end of the week. Until then I can go ahead and assemble and base the command squad so as not to waste time.
