So I have been definitely slacking on my posting to this site, but at least 2021 has been a turn-around in my painting and hobby progress. As things moved toward vaccine and gaming in person, I’ve found a huge drive to get things painted and going for hobby connections again. To keep things simple and short, I’ve swerved away from some of the Tau I was working on at the start of the year, and I’ve been building Necrons (while still keeping my larger Chaos forces of Death Guard and Nurgle+Khorne deamons in view). We’ve started the Beyond the Veil crusade at my local gaming store Drawbridge Games, which has been a great motivator for painting. I’ve already gone beyond 50 Power Level in what I have painted for the army, and have more in my to-do pile waiting.
This post will recap all the painting progress so far in 2021, and get things back on track for more regular updates.
I’m going to just write out the big list of what I’ve done thus far, and I’ll include some photos of what I’ve done (as much as I can find).
Tau: Broadside with Missiles (5), Five Firewarriors (2), Five Pathfinders (3), Cadre Fireblade (3)
Necrons: Royal Warden (4), Canoptek Reanimator (6), Canoptek Reanimator (6), C’tan Deceiver (18), 6 Scarab Swarms (4), Triarch Stalker with Heat Ray (7), Triarch Stalker with Twin Gauss (7), Overlord (6), 10 Warriors (6), 10 Immortals with Tesla (8), and 10 Flayed Ones (6)
Marvel Crisis Protocol: Green Goblin, Toad, Black Dwarf
So what is happening with my hobby aims going forward? After that huge dump of pictures (hah)? Well I’m still hoping to hit 365 points of painted Warhammer 40k models. Trying to be okay with mixing progress toward two different armies (Chaos and Necrons) rather than just painting the one to exclusion of all others. I’m also definitely going to build a board that I can use for both Marvel Crisis Protocol and for Necromunda (exploring a mix of the latter using some Cthulhu Death May Die and DUST 47 models)–a Morlock Sewer Tunnels build. And the over-arching goal is to do a really huge Invasion of Terra event at Drawbridge in the early Fall (I’ll likely be one of the Chaos warlords for that endeavor). While I’ve got a lot of work lined up for the summer with new roles, I’m also really going to take time to put hobby progress in. So stay tuned for more tailored updates–hoping to get back to telling the tales of my battles, particularly the Necrons and Chaos Crusades I mess with. Tau might be more on the back-burner, but I’ll certainly hang on to them. Well, likely will hang on to them. Maybe. It wouldn’t be me if an army was in danger of being sold off hah.
