Wow, august was the last post. Looking back on the last 3 months(december doesnt count) there wasnt much to report sadly. The odd thing got finished. But its a new year and im still all fresh with the promise of a new year.
I've decided to move away from the "i have to paint" idea. Also with my new years resolutions they are 'long term' plans that will actually take a year to complete. But 2012 will be the year where i take a large chunk out of the lead mountain growing. I'll break these down into quarters i think. I've also reset the battle counters, these arent to record a win/loss ratio but how many games i play during the year.
So Quarter 1. I have a doubles tournament in february. My Flesh Tearers are teaming up with a friend who plays Eldar. Or as i like to call it Operation: Hide behind the Eldar. I cant say were going with a list to make friends with. 2 wraithlords, avatar, wraithguard, Gabriel, Assault squad in pimp land raider, baal pred, vindicator. Dont get me wrong, i dont think its a top table list, and dont really want it to be. Id much prefer to stay mid range and have some proper fun games with fun people. Does that make sense?
Also in Quarter 1 i have entered into a "Tale of Many Gamers" much like has been run many times in white dwarf. The problem is, this has started but what to paint. My choices i feel are, Flesh Tearers, Guard, Sisters of Battle. Now the guard would not be achievable. There is close to 60 miniatures per 500pt stage. Ok yes i could throw in Yarrick or Ogryns to make it easier. Hmm, food for thought. Sadly, the flesh tearers only really have a few things to paint to be a nice 2000pt force, most of that is tanks and Sanguinary Guard. Below is a test miniature for the sisters. I can rattle them off quite quickly. The other reason to have this "goal" is I have a few business trips planned for Jan/Feb a lot of evenings in hotel rooms. 20 or so miniatures and closed palette are easy in the luggage. I've put a poll up for a decision.
Hope to update this more often than i did last year.
