I Bit The Toe of Satan

A quick break down of the last week or so, including one of the most painful experiences of my life.

So another weekend has been and gone and I have yet more plastic to show for it. In all, I now have 2 Tervigons, a Hive Crone and an Imperial Knight to be cracking on with (The Imperial Knight was an accident- I only wanted the Tyranid stuff but somehow I ended up buying one anyway!). The Exocrine is about 60% completed now and I have finally found a method for doing the colour scheme that I am happy with which should mean that the army progresses at a greater pace now (when I don't get distracted painting my shiny Imperial Knight!).

Now for the pain....

Play Test Incoming

I realise I haven't put a post up in a couple of weeks, had a pretty manic time at work recently. anyway I thought I'd share the following picture as an update on the Exocrine that I am working on.... and continue reading for more details of something else I am going to be attempting soon....

Time for Tweaking

Well I have my ticket for the next Blog Wars, now I just need the army!! I have been reviewing my provisional list and have come up with a slight variation that I would mind some feedback on. Basically it involves dropping the 2 Hive Guard and a Thorax Swarm from a MC and taking a brood of 3 Biovores... I think it will help the army pack a bit more punch.

What do you guys think?

Exocrine Update

Well it's Sunday evening as I write this and, although I don't intend to finish and publish this until Monday, I thought I'd give you a quick update of my progress this evening. My weekend has been somewhat manic but I found an hour to sit and do some painting this evening and have started applying colour to the Exocrine.....

Tyranid Model Review: Exocrine/Haruspex Kit

Well I thought it was time I actually wrote a semi-review of a model and as I am currently working on the new Exocrine kit I thought this would be a nice place to start. I'd like to start out by saying, my reviews will never be unbiased- if you want an impartial view then I this probably isn't for you......

Update in Progress

The Title of this post is actually a little bit misleading. I have just replaced my desktop computer (my old one went Kaputt about a year ago and I never got around to it!) which means hopefully now I can get in to the habit of writing articles and blog posts more frequently. I won't be working to a schedule- if I have nothing to write about I won't be writing but I will try to do this semi frequently now (hopefully around the once a week mark would be a nice start!)

As a treat for you I have included a single image of what I am currently working on for you....

Tyranids Army List First Attempt

Here we go with a first attempt at an 1850 point Tyranid Army List using the new codex. Firstly a couple of pointers. As I am currently planning for the next Blog Wars this army is built using the Blog Wars restrictions (must include a character), so please bear that in mind.

Without further ado........

Codex: Tyranids Initial Thoughts

I am sure we have all noticed that the Interweb seems to have erupted like a volcano of hatred spewing the lava of discontent over Games Workshops latest update for the Tyranids (memo to self; must improve metaphors).

The Volcano of Hatred 

I disagree with them and now let me present a "structured and well thought out" Blog Post that has the underlying message; "SHUT UP YOU HATERS!"

Time for Some Focus! A Hobbying New Years Resolution!

I'd like to say that I started writing this between Christmas and New Year but with a hectic couple of weeks at work I have only just got around to finishing this off.

For my New Years resolution and to make me focus a bit better on the Hobby (and specifically completing projects) I am expanding on the completely failed Painting Points System I implemented last year. After an abysmal 2013 the coming year is mine!!!

So for a start there will be a New Scoring System....
