Head Krieg In Charge
     Never do your officer test schemes on your Commander.  Unless of course the model is really, really cool. I really wanted his longcoat to look as close to leather as possible. It's the only part of the model I took the time to blend. I do like how it turned out, even the back. The medals are basic colored and don't really pop as much as I'd like. He'll be brighter than all the rest to allow him to stand out more.

     Later when more models are complete, I may touch him up and pop him off of the temporary base for something more scenic.  For now, I've got a solid looking HQ to roll with.  I'll work on the rest of his command squad in the next week or so.

Next Project

I just got back from Adepticon 2011 a couple weekends ago. This event annually is a recharge of all the hobby juices. Seeing so many awesome conversions, terrain, painted armies, and good friends always leaves me inspired. This was my second year on Team Handsome in the 40K Team Tournament. We're 2 for 2 on Team Spirit awards since I've been there, clearly it's me. =)

One of my teammates this year, the "Ironman" Brian Carlson, and I had a hobby inspired conversation. With no events planned for me in the next few months, it's time to focus on something that's going to take some time and love. My resin.

I've got three major projects stored away in the workshop:

The first, is my Death Korps of Krieg army. I've slowly purchased pieces, unit by unit, and stashed them away till it was time to give them the attention they deserved.

The second, is a complete Anphelion Base which I won as first prize in a tournament.

The last, is a Warhound Titan which was given to me as a parting gift from my last job.

All 3 are going to take a hell of a lot of time to do the way I want, so I think this is my priority list. A new army, then a new table to play on, then one hell of a reinforcement.

I am a man with more hobbies than I can count. I just don't have time for them all. So, in an effort to instill some focus, I've succumbed to making a blog. We'll see how it goes.
