This is mostly me rambling, trying to figure out what I'm doing. I have so many half done projects with even more ideas for new ones. The big one: I really want to make a Tau Bastion. A giant tower with Twin-linked Pulse Rifles on each side and a pintle-mounted Ion Cannon on top? Big crated on the ground where is was dropped in? Some walls that look like the expanded out from the base after it landed?
Tau to paint:
Finish Kroot: They're like 90% done and I'm just being lazy.
Finish Devilfish: ~75% complete, still not happy with the large smooth areas.
3 Crisis Suits: These will probably be the hardest for me to get motivated to do. They're assembled and that makes it kind of not easy to do the inside areas well. Still trying to work out a better way for that.
3 Stealth Suits: These are sort of painted, they need some detailing, but I'm still not happy with them just looking like everything else in my army. They're supposed to be camo'd and special and whatnot. Not sure what I want to do with them though. Potentially explore more of an entirely black suit with a "glowing" look that I mentioned a few days ago.
Lots of Gun Drones: May never happen. Unless I start using some.
A Marker Drone: May never happen. Unless I start using it.
Daemons to paint:
Daemonettes: Finish painting and basing the other 19.
Masque: Paint it.
Bloodletters: Fix the two the dog chewed on (Grr!). Possibly some work on the hellblades. Mostly just done.
Juggernaut #2: Repaint to be not a black rhino with a green bloodletter...some ideas just don't work out.
Pink Horrors: Possible stripping and try again.
Flesh Hounds: Finish bases.
Karanak: Finish base and highlight/wash.
Bloodthirster: Finish. (need to work up the skin to a nice bright red and detail)
Lord of Change: Finish his beak and glue his damn pieces together you lazy bastard! (I yell at myself for this one all the time. I'm particularly proud of a few select models, and this is one of them. It's like 99% done and I just need to sit down and do it.)
Skulltaker: Clean-up and some better detailing. He was one of my first models (I think my first warhammer purchase was Skulltaker, 10 Bloodletters, 10 Daemonettes, and 3 Flamers)
That list is kind of funny for someone who only really ever wants to play mono-Nurgle (All my Nurgle units are painted, heh)
The Tau Tank Traps need finishing.
Tau Bastion: This is my next big project.
Set of Tunnels: I wanted to make a set of "tunnel" representing pieces for coolness and/or stratagems, should I ever play anything that uses them. I also thought I could make them look pretty cool, disguising them in various ways. This might get abandoned.
Craters: I want to make some. Probably following something like this: Miniwargaming: Crashed Asteroid
Number one right now: Finishing my roommates Dreadnought. I have a very very very odd love of Dreadnoughts. I like mech-like suits. I always have. Mechwarrior, Armored Core, etc. Anything with an oversized robot with interchangeable parts and I'm in.
Hid Dreadnought is from an age of metal. It's a heavy little sucker, with no base. Anyway, he finally picked a chapter, Raven Guard, so I offered to paint it for him (more like asked if he'd let me, which I had asked multiple times, to which he responded "Then I'd have to pick a chapter."). I've been poking at it for ~2 weeks, but it's a PITA to paint assembled. So I found this guy who suggested boiling it. Literally. I boiled water and dropped him in for 30minutes. Worked like a charm.
Now that he's apart hopefully he'll be done soon, and I'm working on finishing my Kroot while in between Dreadnought stages (waiting for things to dry). Infantry is so hard. The test model is all exciting, but then you try to replicate it 11 times and painting the same stock 4 or 5 times, I just don't want to do the other 6 >.<
That's enough rambling, back to work...
