|Mobile Hobby Crib! A nod to the Colonel!|
Welcome to 2012!
Pictured above is my hobby station at my in-laws over the holidays. My mother in-law loves me and always keeps a spot open just for me and my toys. Notice the 'tumbler' in the background!
It's seems the rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. I was ill and it took some time to get well. As an older guy I have not been sick often in my life and this was one of those occasions where I was worried. Medical technology though is my friend and after several weeks of tests, running a camera into my body, and now the right medication I am feeling much better. I was lousy in December and the time off from work did me wonders!
Hobby-wise I have done some but at my own pace which is sloooow. I won't bore you with dribble but will give you a few pictures and some simple comments.
I wasn't happy with the two previous versions of a count-as Rune Priest. This is the version which I will paint prior to Adepticon this year... Yes, even though I'm a noob when it comes to the tournement scene my, I won't miss meeting my friend Pat (Tallarn) from Spokane who is attending as well!
I needed to add a few marines to some miss matched squads and one thing I wanted was a distinctive sergeant. Now all I need is a good name for him. The 'gangsta' pose is a copy of another fellow I have that holds two storm bolters.
I have never been a fan of the scouts out of the box by Games Workshop. I don't like the heads, I'm not fond of the scopes or the close combat weapons. I used assualt weapon bits and regular shoulder pads and then drilled out the faces of Dark Angel hooded heads to create some scouts I really like.
I should mention that there are some people in the local area that are really turned off by the large shoulder pads on the scouts. I like 'em and you can't please everyone!
Ahhh... that seems to be all for now.
Thanks for following. I will seek you out in your own corners!
