Pooch's January update

Well, here we are. One month down, 11 to go. One month, one post. I succeeded at that at least! As for everything else? Well....

1. Paint a new 40k Army- progress!
I was lucky enough to get a good starter from a friend for this army, and managed to get the first two test models done. So without further delay, here is the start of my Imperial Guard Krieg Army!

Commissar. Because, motivation is important.

2. Create a table of terrain to support a game- no progress

3. Make a modular terrain piece- no progress

4. Paint a naval fleet- no progress. I bought stuff, does that count?

5. Finish something for an army I haven't used in a year and take it to a tournament- I was close to this one, and the failed at the “actually going to the tournament” thing. I was aiming to head to a Valleycon, and painted two new Panzer IV F2 to go with my panzer army, which hasn’t been used in a year. Sadly events transpired that I couldn’t attend. They did at least get a game vs Pelarel, so..  that’s something?

To be fair, it wasn't exactly a hard paint job.....

6. Buy a starter box and paint all of it I made progress, but nothing finished. 

7. Paint every miniature for a game I own- I made progress on this one too, but didn’t finish

8. Paint a Space Marine each month- hey hey! I did do this one! I painted up the first Space Marine from the Space Marine heroes box. And I really enjoyed it. McZ and I worked hard to find what would be a stupid and fun colour scheme, ultimately arriving at the Storm Lords chapter as the most fun. Red, white, yellow AND black, all on one model. Plus, a fun chapter logo to paint by freehand.

9. Paint a stand alone force for a game- no progress

10. Update and improve a table of terrain- no progress

11. Paint something Napoleonic- no progress

12. Finish what I should have finished last year- DONE- I did this one too! One of the requirements before I started my new 40k army was to finish my old one. I bought a Death Guard army when 8th edition came out, splitting the starter box with Scotty. It was one of those armies I always wanted, right back from the fools old days of the plastic, monopods plague marines from 2nd(?) edition.

Flash forward however long it has been since that was released (years!)  I have finally finished the last of my Death Guard!

36 Plague Marines, 42 Pox Walkers,Bloat deones, HQs and Elite choices. All in all, a cool army which I really like, and it’s been fun on the tabletop too. Despite getting curb stomped in the last game by Scotty’s Grey Knights.

Many Plague Marines.

Next month? Hopefully more Krieg, 6 and 7 will get a big DONE, with something else finished for 12 too...

Till next time,
