So these past 2 weeks were pretty good for my Tau Empire! I made some good progress on the pathfinders unit and 2 of their drones and I managed to finish my Ethereal on Hover Drone for the painting competition in our local GW store. And I also got my feet wet with my first ever 40k game!
I had a pretty good week where I managed to lay the last touches on my greatswords moving them off the “still working on pile” and getting a colorscheme testmodel done for my Tau sept.
I have been contemplating an army for 40k for a while now, but the rule clusters had been preventing me to step in on more then one occasion. No more!!! 8th Edition is coming and looking more like AoS so I finally made the step to join this greater good thing.
So last weekend it was that time of the year again to go to the annual Eurobash again with my mate Ronald and his brother Harold. So we loaded up the car and were off to St. Niklaas (Belgium) on Friday the 29th of April. Time to play lots of games and drink loads of beer while enjoying each others company. We (the Dutch delegate) played a game of Munchkin while we waited on ze Zgermans and Brexitters.
So Saturday was the delivery day for our first ~500 points for our Escalation League. And I played my first game against another Free People army.. well a few models.
Here is my Army that I entered, where the normal troops are mostly “battleready” painted. I will go back to them to add the highlights.
See more details per unit next
So I am working furiously on my Free Guild that entered my local Escalation League, starting with 500 points.. well this is a bit over that.
I managed to finally finish off my Free Guild General on warhorse and rebased my Bright Battlemage. YES!! I have made the plunge into rebasing. It feels liberating and so I have rebased some of my Swordsmen (now Free Guild Guard with sword and shield) and made some nice progress, almost all base colours and some washes done.
So these last weeks have been busy where possible. As possible as can be during Christmas and New Years and having the kids stay up late and stuff.
I had a great holiday none the less, but it is time to start picking up my hobby in a bit faster pace again. So trying to stay away from gaming more. (looking at you Lego Dimensions!)
So let’s see what I did:
