Damn You Space Marine!

It's been a LONG time since I've lost so much hobby time to video games. Deus Ex and Space Marine absolutely killed my Krieg progress over the last couple of weeks. Argh!

The good news is that I've basically played my fill of these for the time being, and FINALLY got back into the hobby room to stay for continued Krieg progress. Tonight I primed black 5 troopers, and sprayed their coats with the customary Vallejo Model Air Primer Grey. Good times.

While this endeavor isn't worth posting a pic, something I stumbled across today is. From the Warseer forums, a thread by the Australian hobbyist 'Sheep' prominently features a Death Korps army he's made a lot of progress with. He came up with a fantastic mortar team conversion doubtless inspired by the German Nebelwerfer from WWII. It's a fantastic conversion, and the autumn SS camo he's using looks great as well. Check this out:

I think this is some innovative and sexy hobby. If you'd like to see more, check out his massive Warseer thread. He's got some serious chops.

Well, I'm back on the wagon and have cast aside the devilish influence of video games! Let there be hobby!!

Death Korps of Krieg Deployed

Last Friday we got together at Hobby Night and took a bunch of pics and some video for our upcoming "Ghemehaal: Annihilation" 40K campaign. I've never really done any kind of Corel/Photoshop stuff before, so I'm slowly learning how to manipulate images for publication. This is the first one I thought I'd post up. The more I do this the better I'm going to get at it.

In the meantime, I've actually gotten some real work done as well. I've assembled and based another full squad of Krieg troopers, and will start painting them after work tomorrow. Onwards!

Death Korps Leman Russ Tank DONE

Woo hoo! I've added another tank to the army tonight- one step closer to being ready for next month's campaign. Nothing too crazy/unique with this paint job, just more of the same I've been doing up to this point.

Up next is another Krieg infantry squad, followed by their Chimera transport. Until then, thanks for checking in!

Platoon Command Chimera DONE

Well, I've spent a full week on vacation, mostly watching movies and playing the hell out of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. AWESOME game. What else can I say?

 However, the week was not a complete hobby loss. While I did indeed expect to get more done than this Chimera, it is still done and that's cool. I'm happy with how the turret marking came out- the '1' is a stencil and the command laurels around it I painted freehand. Really pleased with the overall look :)

 Up next is a Leman Russ! Until next time, thanks for checking this out and for your comments...
