Batch painting is the pits. Until you're done and then you're like, "Yeah baby, I'm a lean, mean painting machine!" Overcome by ADHD I kept being distracted by Evil Dead Ash. He was such a pleasing conversion, I wanted him to shine. So I just slowed down and started painting him on his own. Yeah, it wasted time but it was also good because my paints were ready and I could just carry on with the rest of the squad. If I paint one rim, I might as well do all 10 while I'm here. When I got deathly bored with the troops I went back to making Evil Dead Ash look spruce and manly. It worked out quite well and seemed less of a chore as a result. In fact, this is the first time I've enjoyed batch painting since, well.. forever.
Listening to the Ravenor trilogy on audio book also helped. I'd forgotten just how good that series is. Abnett, Haley and Dembski-Bowden are the holy trinity for me. I have to be quite circumspect with Black Library these days and have several unfinished, forgotten Horus Heresy books lying around now.
I kept thinking of a comment by Siph in a previous post where he advised me to equip the squads with an Omnispex. I checked back and it appears I have only built one of these out of all 30. Time for a bit of creative, lazy-ass thinking. So I came up with this:
Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up. See this? This is my BOOMSTICK! It's a modified Arkhan pattern Galvanic Rifle with elongated barrel for increased effective range**.
