Updates and Storm Guardians...

Time for an update!

The table is filling with almost finished models. The Wraithlord is a hair away from being finished, so watch for that announcement coming soon. The Dire Avengers and Guardians (not pictured) are also, just almost finished. The War Walkers still have a bit of work to go, but they are definitely well on their way too. Also not pictured are the heavy weapons. They have all been magnetized and are ready for a spray of Testors Dull Cote to protect them and they will be ready to rock.


Note the limited edition Space Marine Sergeant in the foreground. That little bastard keeps taunting me, trying to get me to succumb to the distraction monster!

Pictured below are the first twenty of the eventual forty Storm Guardians! These are the guys that are driving me crazy with Super Glue. Thanks to several tips from the awesome blogger community I'm getting a tiny bit better with Super Glue... though I still hate it. In particular, adding a tiny bit of toilet paper to the joint seems to have a positive effect for me.


That's all I've got for now. The army is coming along pretty well. My anti-distraction campaign continues, but I do want to stop and paint the counters from my Gamers Edition I picked up this weekend. I understand the bright green is meant to make them easy to spot, but I think I'll tone mine down a bit with some paint. Also, at some point I may have to stop and try a game with them... no really...

Thanks for stopping by, and as usual, feel free to leave comments or critiques.

I really admire the intensity of your project with magnets and such! I am not doing nearly as much as that for my own. Those Dire Avengers are looking mighty nice, and I am glad to hear that you are largely able to stave off Distraction, the anti-Muse.

Also, I don't know how I couldn't make a note of this, but the word verification for this comment is "ardboy"

Nice work - the graceful leggie ones just keep on marching forward!

...and you've got to love the randomizer in word verification!

Nice looking walkers there.

Personally, I've succumbed to the distractions and have given up on playing again. I just do little projects and blog about them now.

One day, I will play a game again.

This is great work! Like wise, you're on my list of regular sites now!

Looking forward to see more!
