I'm around. Just took a longer than expected hiatus after Adepticon. While I was super energized for competition level painting, my hobby-area was a bit of a disaster and it took some time to get off my keister and get back to painting. Put some work in over the past week and hope to get these models finished before the end of the month.

Glad to see you back. Would have liked to have seen these guys in person at Adepticon. How'd it go?

Thanks, guys. Unfortunately, I missed the June 30 deadline despite a decent scramble to complete something else. Paint mojo just wasn't with me. Starting to think skirmish level games and forces might be more my thing. Hard to keep things fresh over an entire army.

Adepticon was good. Already looking forward to next year. Need to practice my high-faluttin' paint techniques for a boba fife Crystal Brush contender next year!

Glad your back man I'm seriously tempted to do some iron warriors and copy your simple 218 step formula, honestly can't wait to see what you have in store for us :)

Please, for your own sanity, find a simpler formula. The sheer number of steps is the primary reason I'm looking to ally in any CSM additions that aren't the Warsmith and his retinue (looking at you, Raptors/Assault Marines I purchased at Adepticon...)

In other news... I finished my April and May commitments!

It's been a VERY long time coming, but with these 7 models done, I've now completed all the infantry models from my original Iron Warriors list built... how many years ago? I know that none of the models have the IW logo on the right shoulder, and that the banner poles are bare, but they're finally to a point that I don't feel embarrassed fielding them for small games or Zone Mortalis. To go bigger, I'll need to finish the 7 vehicles I originally built for the list...

...did I say 7? Tell ya what, let's go ahead and drop it to 6. ;)

I think I'm gonna try to knock out the vehicle base coats all at once, which will need a solid chunk of hobby time. I'm hoping to find one before August switches to September.
