Two Last Pieces and Year End Roundup

In an effort to clear out some stuff for the move and to help my FLGS, here are two last pieces of line of sight blocking terrain I did up:

 photo 5E2A5931-8BD7-4159-8A56-BFA6023A1487_zpsicsk7qcv.jpg

Bringing this year's total to:

Figures: 192
Terrain: 41
Vehicles: 14

Down from last year but considering it involved a three month hiatus of major projects I am content.

The big winner was my friend Owen that I did a boatload of D&D, plus some gift figures for. Followed by Ultras (no suprise), Ultramarines (my only "complete" army), and then a smattering of Chaos and Imperial Guard, er Astra Militarum. In zero place are my poor Eldar and Necrons (although at least the Necrons got played this year). Somewhere in there was terrain which got used quite a bit, although not always by me. I also knocked out a couple things I had been wanting to get done; the Vulture, the barrels, and the Mantic Terrain so pleased to get them done.

For next year I have a bunch of Ultras (no suprise) but I want to focus on Horus Heresy Ultras, an entire new airforce for the Ultras, then catch up some Eldar, Necrons and some huge projects I have been sitting on for a few years. For the next coupe of weeks I should be moving but until then Happy New Year to you all.

Ultramarnes Sicaran and Black Legion Warpsmith and (not) So Much More!

These are probably the last new paints of the year. Final count to follow in a few days.

There are some minor flaws that became apparent after painting but I can live with the final product. This think kick behind in both 40k and 30k and I'm looking forward to giving it a field test.

I wanted him to be Black Legion and not be overwhelmed by all the metal on him; I'm content with the results. He has a couple spare tentacles, to include a painted one that has gone AWOL. Since we are moving shortly I'm sure it will turn up eventually.

I also knocked out this Chaos Sorcerer and familiar and Forge World Navigator. For what it is worth, I was Black Legion before Black Legion was cool! (No I'm not a Chaos hipster).

The Navigator is great for Horus Heresy, or as an objective for 40K, or as a PC figure for Rogue Trader (maybe I'll get to play that again some day).

Just a couple figures left and then time for the annual count of what all I got painted this year. Hope it stacks up to past years!

Shields! SHIELDS!

++++Thought For The Day: Duty is All++++
++++To Tech Priest Cyan 6155792A++++
++++From Tech Priest Nu 1341 Omega++++
++++Subject Void Shield Generators++++
Blessing of the Omnimessiah be upon you. Per the terms of our agreement we have provided the void sheild generators to protect your defense network. First, you will see that the these are not the standard version. Due to a scarcity of the appropriate resins and their limited production run we were forced to adapt from local materials. The bunkers they units are mounted on are STC designs that have gone out of favor due to their limited size and ability to mount heavy weaponry. Although they have access hatches, they are filled to capacity with the sacred innards. The ramparts on top however can be accessed and manned in limited numbers. As there is not an adequate amount of sanctified skulls, these were not used in the construciton. You will need to conduct rites of appeasement more frequently to the machine spirits to ensure their harmonious blending of energies. I have encluded a recommendation for sweeetmeats and blessed oils to be offered and at what times. Second, please direct the local PDF commander to stop referring to the shield dispersal mechanism as "that shiny spinny bit" as is causes distress to the lay mantenance priests. I trust these generators will provide you with sufficient protection. May you find enlightenment in your oneness with them.

++++Message ends++++

In essence I did not have $106 USD to purchase one of the limited edition casts or a similar amount for a foreign recast so I made my own.

One is nice:

Three is better as that is how the are best deployed:

All this plus a stompa (still being worked on) can be yours. Links when this goes live.

Vulture for Dinner

Today is Thanksgiving in the US and rather than dine on turkey, I'm dreaming of vulture!

This was a conversion using some leftover bits from a previous project. After some adjustment work on the tail sections, I am very pleased with how it turned out.

Okay, that project is off of my bucket list. Now back to obligations!
