OK, I lost track of time…
After my last post I went on a painting blitz. I didn’t get anything “Finished” in time for Haven but I did get it to a tabletop quality- the basic colours on and neat and the models glued on to a base. I’m going to finish them sooner rather than later I hope, because they were nice models and they served me well.
Since then I’ve been doing little things, currently I’m painting up two little somethings for a blog post and waiting for the right conditions to undercoat two kitbashed guys for my Inquisitorial warband. I think that they’ll need a post to themselves though as they’re fairly mixed up in terms of kits and conversions and I want to keep this post fairly brief.
My plans for the next “week” are to finish off the two models for my next blog post and then work on something particular, either my Wolves or my Guardian Jetbikers, I haven’t decided yet.
While I was painting up my guys the other week I noticed something that I hadn’t realised when the new Space Wolves book came out, namely that most (all but 3) of my Long Fangs are no longer game legal. The issue is that in the old book Long Fangs came with combat blade and bolt pistol and threw away the pistol, whereas now they come with bolter and bolt pistol abd replace their bolter, meaning that all the guys I have holding sharp pointy things are no longer WYSIWYG. The older sculpts are less of an issue as they only wield the ubiquitous combat knife, but this guy (who now has a coat of paint but no up to date photo) has a very illegal chainsword. Now, I really like this conversion and I like the chainsword but I’d rather have a model I can use, so, do I replace the sword or not? And if so, do I risk giving him a bolt pistol? I’m really not sure.
But that’s it for now. Until next time!
