2009 year end.. random-ness.

Well it's been a while since I posted. I have been working on stuff - however I had planned to wait until after sealing most of it to post up pics. Unfortunately there was a mistake when I booked the hobby room and instead of getting it last weekend - I have to wait until January 8th :\

I have mostly been painting little things. I finished up my Pit Fighter for warhammer quest, I painted up a Scum and a couple beastmaster rats for necromunda, as well as getting a 40K objective (oil drums) painted up. I also got 5 bowmen painted up for my Mordheim warband - as we've started a Mordheim campaign at Heavy Support Games - I am super pumped about finally getting to play some Mordheim. Also have been getting stuff ready to prime (though still failed on the Warg Riders).

I also got a few more necromunda models ready (minus sealing) to use by giving them a light "wash" with a wood stain. This includes a Telekinetic Wyrd and a Goliath Juve (will use with genestealer cult or as hired gun) that my brother painted. I used the stain on the Scummer as well - but he counts as painting points.

I have a bunch of pics from some necromunda games I never got around to posting - and probably won't because I don't remember much of the game anymore, and I'll be waiting until the New Year to post pics of what I have painted recently since (at least the wood stain dipped models) look way too shiny without the matt sealer.

I also found some christmas spirit and gave away a bunch of old junker models to some folks who would put it to use. One is a couple tactical squads of 2nd edition marines to a kids 40K club (will definitely post when I get some pics of what they have painted) and the other is some really junky marines and some cardstock templates to a family whose son is interested, but can't afford to really get him much (and definitely not drop $100+ dollars without knowing if he's interested).

Overall it's been a busy december - but not as busy hobby wise as I'd like. With the hobby room booked and *confirmed* for early january I hope to get a good start to 2010. I've completed 215 of my 250 point goal - 86%.

Goals for 2010;
* Complete 250 painting points
* Get my Orcs & Goblins to a useful level - fully painted (at least 1,500)
* Get my Space Sharks to a useful level - fully painted (at least 1,500)
* Build a collection of Space Hulk maps for my travel space hulk.
* Play LOTS!
* Paint a mini a week, see our local groups blog - Weekly Minis.

I've always wondered what this hobby room you sometimes mention is. Aren't those 2nd edition marines you gave to those kids cast from some sort of lead alloy?! Hahah.

hobby room is in our condo, i book it to prime/seal stuff.

2nd edition was well after they started using pewter, and was all plastic.
