Tracking my Ravenwing

Post by Zhent » Thu Sep 08, 2016 6:40 pm

After experiencing all that NOVA had to offer this year, I've decided to do a better job of keeping my hobby progress going; one thing that was suggested to me was lots of booze. More importantly, it was suggested that I track my progress regularly - I'm not sure I am ready to enter something quite as structured as the hobby progress challenge, since that seems to run a fixed duration and jumping in halfway, half-assed, and fully unprepared seems a recipe for disaster, but I think if I start here and keep track of both my goals and my progress, that may keep things running.

Ideally, I finish this full army before embarking on another project; I'm so close!

To Buy:
Interrogator-Chaplain on a bike
Librarian on a Bike
8 Bike Bases
1 Attack Bike Base

To build:
6 Ravenwing Knights
1 Interrogator-Chaplain on a bike
1 Librarian on a Bike
1 Sammael

To Paint:
Sammael
Darkshroud
Attack Bike
2 Landspeeders
1/2 Landspeeder
6 Bikes
6 Ravenwing Knights

I had the following completed in 2014 for the NOVA open narrative games; since then this army has sort of fallen by the wayside while I took a journey through Malifaux, X-Wing, Fantasy 8th Edition, Age of Sigmar, Home Buying 101, Home Renovations 101, and How to Total a Car 101. But we're back on track now!

1 Landspeeder
1 Librarian on a Bike
RA Command Squad
RA Knight Squad

3x RA Bike Squad + Attack Bike

Start building while you wait for those bases! They'll be a while...

Oh yeah. In fact, I should finish up all 6 of those bikes that I have tonight. The bases are ordered, but I'm expecting at least 4-6 weeks before I see them.

Now I'm on the hunt for a good conversion for a librarian and a chaplain on a bike. I am sort of leaning towards: buy a Ravenwing Command box, with the nifty new bikes full of DA insignia. Use all the extra robed legs that I've acquired from multiple kits so far. Modify 6 bolters to replace the plasma talons, and cut up a Chaplain and Librarian to put on the bikes. Also could use the third as a techmarine on a bike, for completeness' sake.
