My main christmas present this year was a collection of dark eldar sets and an escher gang. Which ofcourse meant a kitbash galore with me making several chemmed-up punk-ass gladiators. As with the majority of my models, I have valued function over form and figure I can easily stat them up for whichever game system I think needs them.
On top of that I also got myself some of the sweet Necrolluscs from TC Miniatures, and a snail beast of nurgle to lead them.
I love this fellows sort of "oh no" expression giving him a sort of juvenile innocence. I guess his playtime just got a bit rough. And as a third semi-surprise my kickstarter pledge for some Pantheon of Chaos minis finally arrived, and they are drop dead gorgeous. I got around 9 of their beastmen and malal inspired monstrocities, a few of which I had to get colouring right away.
As far as 2018 goes, I have a large amount of things stacked up and ready for me to dive into. I have my remaining squad of Adeptus Mechanicus, I have my large Cerebalite and its slaves, my Necrolluscs, Squats, Dark Eldar, Pantheon Beastmen and Ramshackle Terrain. So there is definately things to dive into once I work up the courage.
Looking back at 2017 with all its distractions and tragedies, I have also gotten quite a few things painted, in no particular order:
|My Warzone undead legionaires|
|This sweet display tray|
|And all the cool LOTR Goblins (now wretched mutants) on it.|
|These Cybjôrg badasses|
|Black Goblins, from Knightmare Miniatures|
|This motley crew of cursed men and beasts|
|My Shadespire skeletons, who have only suffered terrible defeats so far.|
|Repurposed Hotwheels for some roadwar mayhem.|
|Converted mutant fungi from Alternative Armies|
|Gnarly Pilgrims from TC Miniatures, a Warzone boss-guy and a converted warhammer giant.|
|And a techno-barbarian posse for the latest expansion of Mutants and Death Ray Guns.|
And last but in no way least, I have been working with Andrea Sfiligoi of Ganesha Games on a little something, that should release next year.
To be frank 2017 has felt like a perfect skidmark of a year for me, but looking back at my photo records, it is kind of reassuring how much I have managed to hobby up regardless.
