I hear the next year is going to be "lock-yourself-in-your-room-and-forget-you-have-a-family" hard, so I'm gonna make this Summer a good one. I also resigned from my job a few weeks ago to concentrate on college & my upcoming student teaching, so that'll give me a bit more free time for the family and painting when I have some down time.
I was supposed to do OFCC again this year, but it ended up conflicting with our yearly family vacation, so I had to bow out. I was going to build a Khorne Daemonkin army for that tourney, since I already had a number of units, but as I started evaluating the units I realized I had a lot more Tzeentch daemons/marines. So lately I've been building toward a (rumored) Tzeentch Daemonkin army instead.
|If I do any marines I'll paint them up as the Sons of the Cyclops, the Tzeentch-specific faction of the Black Legion. They'd fit nicely with the blue & gold color scheme I've used up to this point.|
At the moment I have a Lord of Change, the Changeling, 5 Heralds (3 on discs), Ahriman, a Terminator Sorcerer, 30 horrors, 8 rubric marines, 7 Flamers, 9 screamers, 2(+) Princes, a Soul Grinder, & a few tanks I could add some spiky bits to (a Land Raider, & a Predator) so I should be set. (I might need some more CC to protect the squishy units, some bikes, raptors, or a maulerfiend)Aside from that, I've been preparing for "Muninn's Month o' Minis" which will start July 1st. I have a lot of partly-painted minis, so this should help shore up a lot of unfinished work. I have so much I could probably add a week or two of extra minis. Now that I've quit my photography job it'll also make taking/editing pictures a bit more interesting.
I still have a few classes this Summer, but without work, and with my wife on Summer break, it should still give me plenty of time. Expect to see a lot more over the next few months.
