In anticipation of upcoming battles I decided to test out what my units can do and while I was limited by time I managed a few tests with my 4 Heralds.

It has certainly been a while since my last post (again) but there's a reason for that which is that I've been very focused on my painting. This focus has meant that since deciding my New Year's Resolution to paint a unit a week I've actually been able to do it so yay me.
This boost in my progress means that I've got plenty to show you and I'll start by showing my Blue Scribes kit bash which was more of a pillaging of the leftover bits and pieces from the Burning Chariot kit. Without further ado...

With my new Heldrake to do I realised just before New Years Eve that I've fallen into the exact trap that I said that I wouldn't fall into many posts ago; I swore I wouldn't start one project until I'd finished whatever I was working on a and now I have more unpainted than painted. Oops. How do I plan to remedy this I hear you ask? Well I'm going to shame myself into getting on with things by listing all the things I've got to do. I'm then going to go on and decide which projects I can do now and which projects require things I don't yet have which will then lead into another list (yes I like lists) of things I need to finish what I have so no I'm not saying I can't buy anything new but the only things I will buy are things to help me finish what I have so tools and paint mainly.
The project list is as follows:
5x Thousand Sons
6x Khorne Berzerkers
30x Chaos Space Marines
5x possessed marines
1x Abaddon the Despoiler
2x Plague Drones (+1 repair job)
2x Bloodcrushers (+3 riders)
4x Seekers of Slaanesh
1x Herald of Tzeentch
1x Herald of Slaanesh
3x Beasts of Nurgle
1x Blue Scribes kit bash
I'm also incredibly tempted by the new Tyranid models because they are awesome plus the Dark Elves are cool and if the rumour mill is correct then the Wood Elves are due an update and I do love the Dryads... Must... Exercise... Restraint...
Edit (7/1/14): I have now added the stripping and painting of 30 Tau Fire Warriors, 1 shield drone, 1 marker drones, 2 gun drones and an Ethereal to this list because I was weak and scored a bargain on eBay. All that for just over £15!
