Let me start off by saying that since Adepticon, I had played a grand total of three fully pointed games of Warhammer 40k leading up to the Khornehusker. I had played a smattering of kill team and 500 / 750 point games for our store’s paint and play league, but that’s it. Real life comes first of course, and I was left to painting my Imperial Fists as the only real way of staying connected to the hobby. The whole time I have been focusing on getting this army ready for Adepticon as part of our team that we’re going to be entering for the 40k team tournament. I’ve been lamenting over how I’d approach painting a yellow army (such a tough color to paint right, in my opinion) that looks good. We’re trying to really make a push for best theme at Adepticon.
Well, I’m not quite to the point of posting at least once a week like I had hoped, but now the gap was only like two weeks instead of a month between posts. I have been busy diving head first into my Imperial Fists army. I finished my first tactical squad, including their guns. I really, really enjoy the old mark armor that forgeworld has been releasing. As I talked about in the last post, the Game Shoppe put on a Kill Team tournament this past week. I decided this would be an excuse to paint up some models that wouldn’t necessarily be functional in my larger army, but look cool nonetheless.
I promise I am not dead. I read a great book on Zen a while back, where a young student reflects on trying to do too much and struggling at everything as a result. So when I come to points where I feel overwhelmed, I shelve the non-essentials for a while – this blog being one of them. Life has settled down, and I want to get back to blogging. So, without further ado…
Note: my camera is recharging its battery right now, I only got one decent picture with my cell phone – more pictures to come in a bit.
