Blast From The Past
BOLSCON is this weekend. I'm going to have a great time - I know that - but right now I swear I'm so burned out on Warhammer 40K I could just scream. My FLGS had a tournament every 3 months, building to a large event in July. Then there was Rounds 1 and 2 of Hard Boyz. Now I've got BOLSCON and Round 3 of Hard Boyz on the horizon and I still have a ton of crap to do for both.
For BOLSON I'm committed to the 2 Falcon list I posted awhile back, so I need to paint a Falcon and Viper by this Friday. I'm planning a Serpent Spam variation for Hard Boyz, so I'll have stuff to purchase, put together, and paint in preparation for that.
I know, I know - I don't actually HAVE to have a painted army for Hard Boyz... well, yea I really do. It's a personal thing: my days of playing events with unpainted armies is in the past, if I can't paint it, I won't play it.
For that reason I have two painting styles, 'Get It On The Board' and 'Doing My Best Till Bored.' Practically everything I've posted of mine on this little blog nobody reads (my mom has given up on it too) is painted in the first style, but I am capable of more when I choose. Why do I bring this up? Well, I'm going to enter something in the painting competition at BOLSCON but since I don't have time to paint something from scratch, I'll have to update a miniature in my collection.
This has sent me down memory lane some. I'll have pictures tomorrow, but I've uploaded my Goff Rok Bank from my old 3E/4E Ork army.
The style is kinda dated, so I'll probably strip it one of these days, but for now I get a kick out of it.
