|With all the rest gone, my new reason to watch TV.|
- New projects on the horizon because I don't have enough on my plate as it is. First up is IKRPG minis. I have a reasonably ambitious plan that involves (currently) four models for a single character. Some bits are still en route, and I need to do some scuplting/converting on most of them, but one is ready for priming. While I won't get any actual work in on it before tomorrow night's session I'll be able to start chipping away afterwards, and with any luck I'll have the first one finished (or well begun) by the time the bits for the rest arrive.
- New project number two is the return of 40k. EV surprised me a few days ago by saying he'd be picking up Dark Vengeance soon. This means that an expansion into Dark Angels is back on the table. EV ran some numbers through Army Builder for me and it looks like two DVs worth of troops, plus am odd squad or two of marines that any GW enthusiast is likely to have lying around, will yield a decent sized army. Even better, said army doesn't sound horrible on paper. I'll be putting some or all of my remaining Christmas bounty into DV and a DA codex, plus whatever other odds and ends catch my eye. I've already started (literally) dusting off some of the extra tactical marines from AoBR and imagining how they'll look in dark green.
- My winnings from Huzzah's first Dust tournament got reinvested in the form of Laser Grenadiers and another box of spotters/snipers. I tried out the new stuff (except the second squad of spotters) last week. I like three sets of snipers. The lasers...maybe they'll work better when I build a list they fit into better.
Next time: hobby progress. I hope.
