Downtime, Changing Gears, & 2014 Plans

by Erich

Wow, the past couple of months been busy! I’ve not had the chance to paint much at home due to work and my free time has been taken up with non-hobby pursuits.

Over the weekend I had the honor of judging the painting for Templecon’s Onslaught GT, both 40k and Fantasy, and saw so many great looking armies and this really served as an inspiration to get painting again.

As for hobbying, I have had a bit of time to work on some models and have been assembling some Hordes Trollbloods for an upcoming Journeyman League at Temple Games. Never having played Hordes or Warmachine before I’m looking for this to provide a good entry into the game while meeting new gamers and getting to work on some great models…more of that in the future.

On the 40K front I’m in between armies again. I cannot seem to keep one long enough to get more than 10 or so games in, not sure if it is the army choices I am making or if my years of playing the game are intersecting with my growing dislike of the GW in general. Or perhaps I just need a break for a couple of weeks ;)

As for looking ahead for 2014…I am hoping Warmachine/Hordes is great and plan on building an adequate army of Trollbloods as well as a Retribution of Scyrah force. I’ve all ready picked up a few models and the starter battle boxes for each and have been pouring over the rules while working on some of the models.

Would also like to build more terrain this year. A few of the GW plastic ruins have been built but they still need bases and painting.

Not sure what is in store for 40K. I keep looking back at Dark Eldar as the models are very nice but have not made a decision of picked up any models. The sweet spot would be something that is challenging to play and interesting to paint.

That’s all for now.
