Life is what happens when you're making other plans...

Oh.  Mygod.   The Paint Or Die project is officially a failure.  Life really did conspire to trip me up on this one!  BUT, I will carry on with the project, and perhaps just rename it Paint Or Not.

The Terminators are making progress, or rather I should say that I am making progress with them. Worked on the first coat of red on the red bits.  Red Gore, which will be followed by a diluted purple wash, drybrush and highlight of some kind.

The Ravenwing is still in the box, waiting for the first coat.  Since I just got a Ravenwing tray from Battlefoam, That's to one side for a while until I can get other projects finished, then I'll build a second set and paint them all together. .

The other thing that's getting in my way is... Warhammer 40,000. Very odd, yes.  I just took over the running of a private gaming club called A Club.  That's the logo I came out with, redesigning an older version.

We have gaming space in a warehouse that`s been decked out specifically for the purpose.  Many tables, TONS of excellent scratch-built scenery, a big ass TV and blue-ray player, a hot dog machine and good camaraderie.  Visitors note after spending an evening that they notice no rules lawyering, no arguments and no bad feeling.  And that makes me glad because people just come to have fun, play a game and enjoy the company of other like-minded individuals.  I think that a lot of that comes from the fact that we only allow members over the age of nineteen. N-n-n-n-n-nineteen.

What else do people like when they come to A Club? Thor's 65000 point mechanised Guard army.

Enough said.


  1. Are you quite sure that is one player's army, and not every tank in the entire country?

    ...On second thought, I guess it could be both...

    Sorry to hear that you didn't meet your painting goals. The best thing to do is to regroup and set a more modest goal to keep yourself on track. :)

  2. Yes I'm definitely sure that's one guy's army.

    You're right about regrouping. Without just going for three colour minimum it was unattainable, and I felt that after spending the money on all those models, I should paint them with more care.

    I'll be happy right now to just get the Terminators done. I have already bought another Ravenwing box, so perhaps the next project will be getting both boxes done at the same time :D

    Sorry my reply took so long - I have no idea how to make Blogger notify me when someone comments.
