Can't we just get "Beyond Thunderdome"?


Art from Deviant Art Check it out

Seriously I can't wait for this move to be done. We move to our new place in 2 days and it's gonna be a brutal moving day. But once it's all over I'll get to set up my work station and then also have a dedicated painting station next to my honey. After all the bonus of this hobby is spending more time with my man.
So my goal for this month is to get all the 'in progress' minis finished up and based. Then Start on my Seraphim squad. First they will all need to take a bath in simple green for at least a day to get all the old paint off and i'll need to snap those ugly eldar wings off of them. I'll try to take a 'before' picture of them so i can do a before and after once i'm finished.
I think I'm going to paint them up white like my newest squad of sisters, At least one squad of them anyways, I have enough for two squad i might paint the other ones blue and black.. I'm not sure yet. I'll have to see how it goes.

Also while packing up my miniatures i finally realized how I learned to paint, I unearthed my dwindling Skaven army. Nothing will teach you how to paint more than painting a 2500 pt Skaven army. (well any large army) Of course i started my skaven army before they came out with plastics. I did paint up a couple of boxes of plastic skaven to round out my army but i really hated them. The metals ones were more fun to paint. I wish i didn't sell all my cool larger models. :( My Rat ogres, Doom Wheels, and Bell all gone. I really had a lot of fun playing my skaven army. I know i fielded it way more than i ever played my Sisters back in the day.

I finally got to play my first 5th edition game and well it wasn't much different than 3rd edition at least from what i remember. We played a small 500pt game Sisters Vs. Chaos and of course the typical 'learning' mistakes happened but it was a lot of fun. I 'won' but i really can't consider it a win since it was my first game in ages and the beginner is always suppose to win.
But since i've played it has helped me figure out how i want to expand my Inquisitor Retinue and i'm going to have to do some conversions to get what i want. Muahahaha

Ok more later as I have some packing to do for the big day.
