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.
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:
So I played 2 more games, 1 game was not battlereport material for a number of reasons. But the latest is. I wanted to try out a Warrior Brotherhood battalion 2k list and Piotr, one of the local players at my GW store, picked up the challenge. Not knowing I was going to deploy the battalion. He used a pretty fluffy list but in the end it was still an entertaining battle. Played 18 december 2016.
Anyway let’s see how Arturo faired, now without his trusted mount.
It’s a bit late, but I want to wish everyone a great Christmas and a happy new year. At least for some you should still enjoy the Christmas holidays.
Normally most and certainly not us celebrate Christmas with presents as we have Sinterklaas already. But this time we did a few presents and the little one was really surprised 🙂
Anyway, due to the generosity of Santa I got my work cut out for me.
I first finished building the Prosecutors from the Start collecting set and with my ne batch of magnets I also finished my 5 Liberators and Lord-Celestant on that part. Then started working on the Celestant-Prime and finished building it in 3 sub-assemblies.. well 4 with the base.
And now working on the Dracothian Guard. I’ll see if I can magnetize the weapon options on them.
adjusted the collection thread with my new additions here
