What got accomplished in 2016/17?
My Deathwatch force started to take shape:
I participated in Dreadtober 2016 as the Deathwatch work continued:
I completed some scatter terrain:
And some Munitorum containers:
And dabbled with a unit of the Emperor's praetorians:
And dabbled with Shadow Wars: Armageddon:
And finally, the Grey Knights landed...
That's quite a season of hobby for me! Some solid progress here and there; some flights of fancy as well along the way. I am very happy where I got my terrain to and I have already enjoyed a few Shadow Wars and 8th ed. 40K games on it. Some Deathwatch progress, but lots more to do. And a good deal of Grey Knight enthusiasm as I head into the new hobby season. And these are just the highlights I culled from past blog posts. There were other bits here and there as well that got done for which I have no pictures (lots more deathwatch were built and primed. the new 8th ed. 40K objective markers set got built, etc...).
For the next season I'd like to continue exploring and honing my painting skills. It is all to easy for me to fall back on building models, which I love, instead of buckling down and getting on with the painting of it all.I will look for new events like Squaduary and Dreadtober for incentive to complete quality projects and will kick myself to fit in a few more on my own initiative. I expect to make more progress on the Deathwatch and to turn up the heat on my Grey Knights. I'm even setting a goal to paint at least one of my currently unpainted squads of Dark Angels, possibly including a transport.
It's going to be a fun and busy season. Best of luck for your own projects and ambitions.
Cheers and Happy Gaming!
