Pete/BlaineThPain-Necron Reinforcements-Challenge Completed!

Postby BlaineThPain » Sun Dec 15, 2013 1:59 pm

Admittedly, I sort of let the work get ahead of me on the 2013 Hobby Challenge. I was super-motivated for my first couple of units and was making good progress, but then let myself get distracted with work and building terrain. (Here's last year's thread).

My goal for this year's challenge is to not let that happen. I still have a bunch of unpainted Necron models calling out to me every time I walk past my hobby shelf so rather than start working on a different army, I'm going to try and focus on getting the rest of my Necrons finished off. I was getting a little bored with the 'crons towards the end, but hopefully I'll be able to stay motivated this time out. (Deciding to re-base most of my army probably didn't help keep the interest up...)

I'd followed the Attacker Force Org to start with, but since these are all reinforcements to my existing army this won't really be a legal FOC. (Although now that 7th is out, I guess you could consider it just an Unbound list..)

Besides a plane, all that's coming to mind is Doc Brown's Delorean.. what were you thinking?

Hehe. Yup. That's what inspired the nickname.

If you're a DT fan and haven't come across it yet, there's a music song/video all about him. :)

Rad. Added them to my Hammerfall/Dragonforce Pandora station.

I found this the other day, too.

Freakin creepy.

Nice. If you're into power metal and haven't heard them yet, I highly recommend Sabaton.

They've got a couple of songs that always remind me of Guard or Marines in combat. (White Death should be Telion's theme song..)

As someone who also didn't finish the HPC last year I'll be cheering you on.

I spent most of the afternoon painting yesterday and got my February commitment completed. I'm fairly pleased with how they turned out, although I'm having some trouble reproducing my black wash.

I've been working on some of the Gauss Immortals as well, but decided to just focus on getting these guys finished off instead.
