A full shot of my army with Guilliman lurking in the background. A gentle reminder of who's really running the show. Papa Smurf is my secret, guilty pleasure. I might have to kick the crutch away however and buy Carab Culln in a Leviathan Dread. He could be almost as broken as Roboute, surely? Luckily, I can play the 'Its Fluffy!' trump card and hang out with the cool kids again. With a Leviathan Dread. Thats a win-win.
I had a lot of fun trying to paint all the vehicles the same colour. Its 3 years since I painted the Stormraven and Lascannon Razorback and I appear to have lost the scrap of paper with the carefully noted down paints and quantities used.
I opted to buy the Forgeworld transfers for the vehicles. I would probably have suffered a mental breakdown if I had attempted to paint them by hand. Plus it was quicker and I was struggling to get them ready in time for the Maelstrom tournament (surprise, surprise!)
I also used Averland Sunset base spray which was an absolute Godsend. I love the look of it when edge highlighted with Ushabti Bone. I never would have thought of that and saw it on a Lord Duncan video I think. I couldn't find it in the Citadel Paint app (which I find myself using more and more frequently) so I guess I must have done.
In other news, I have been playing Shadespire. I can't decide which faction I like best although the Orks seem a bit lacklustre. I played a 4 player game at Miramar Freebooters on Monday and Garrek's Reavers rocked. The mobility of the Reavers is great on the much bigger board size. I love the Sepulchral Guard too but Steelhearts Champions are my current favourite because you can earn loads of glory by doing sweet F.A. and hiding in a corner. It often backfires disastrously of course but I'm really enjoying the game so far.
I've started painting up my 'Celtic Sigmarines'. I'm pretty sure that 'Angharad' is a Welsh name already but I decided to call the other two "O'Brien" and "Sullivan" and paint them green, white and gold.
