As it turns out, the Fly Lords of Terra, I am not.
So this year, I want to take it 'back to basics'. When I started blogging (way back in 2006), I just wanted a place to share what I was working on painting-wise. Then I started reading stuff like BOLS and From the Warp and thought, "Oh yeah, that's what I want to be!"
Well, I think I realized that I don't really have the focus, energy, or patience for that. Plus, I have a lot of other things I do besides updating this blog (including a second child on the way in May!WOOT!).
That doesn't mean I won't post battle reports or articles on campaigning: it just means that I'm making no promises. I plan to post as many pictures of my current projects as I can, and if I decide to do more, it's all gravy.
So, that leads me right into my gaming resolutions for 2009 (hey, it's still January, I can still post these!)
First off, I plan to focus on Daemons this year. I want to finish 1,500 pts by the end of the year. I hope I'm not aiming too high, but it seems to me that Daemons paint up pretty fast. Much faster than my Thousand Sons or Space wolves.
Secondly, I plan to work on only one unit at a time. Being a "painting butterfly" is a huge problem for me. For example, in 2008 I started or worked on at least eleven projects but only finished two. Now, I plan to finish a project before I start a new one.
So let me show you what i have been working on...
First off, I just finished these horrors. For some reason, I just can't seem to get a picture of them that I'm happy with. This picture only shows four of them and hopefully, I'll be able to show you the rest as soon as I take a better picture.
Here is my current project:
These guys have been collecting dust in my drawer for a while (he-he, "dust"). I'm maybe one session away from finishing them. This photo shows the Thousand Sons chapter icons I just painting.
More of the Thousand Sons to come in the next couple weeks. Then, it's daemons, daemons, daemons!!!!
