Status update and future plans

So, blog #2 will be a quick update on where I am with my armies, and what my future plans on with them.

Tyranids:

My army of choice, which I will admit has not been chosen much this year. I have played them a couple times, but nowhere near as much as I did last year. I have painted a large portion of my army, but I still have a long way to go. The Malenthrope has been finished, but I haven’t even truly started with the sky-slashers. I’ve partially built one. They are a pain in the ass, all those tiny legs having to be glued on individually.

The Sky-slashers should be next on my list of things to complete. However, I still have some warriors that I want completed, as well as a unit of Zoanthropes. I am not sure what will come next, but I hope for a new GW release. I could use some good formations, and a decurion style detachment.

Tau:

That right, I still own a Tau army. I have sold part of my collection recently. Not much of my army was sold, but a small part that I never use. Not like I use much of what I have. For the future, all I plan is on getting a game in with them. I don’t plan on expanding on the army, even with all the new units that have been released. Which, with their formations, are bloody awesome. I have also given up on the Piranha based army. 15 of them is just too much.

Carcharodons:

I have moved forward with a lot of my painting on this army. Also completed some of the transfers as well. I am happy with where this army is going. I have also been getting a lot of games with the sharks. I have been fairly successful with them, but I still need practice. (Heck, I lost a close game yesterday thanks to Tyberbos being punted by an Imperial Knight).

As for the future of my sharks, I want to finish some of my command squads (and yes, this is plural) and the rest of the army. I would love to have 2000 points fully painted and transferred, but that is going to take time.

Dark Eldar:

Ah yes, another army that rarely sees the table, although they do see the table more than the Tau. This is an army I play for fun because the 2K points list I bought and built is terrible. It is meant purely for fun.

I have no plans on expanding the army, I am happy where it sits right now. I do plan on starting to paint them again, but this is getting a low priority. At least everything is primed.

Sisters of Battle:

My latest addition to my 40K army set. I bought a small force that will slowly be allied into my Carcharodons. I have just enough to field the allied force how I want them. I have even fully painted a small portion of what I own. I really enjoy painting them, and I want them on the board soon. These will be expanded upon down the line, I just do not know what to get, or when to get it. The next step is to strip some of these sisters (get your mind out of the gutter).

 Alpha Legion:

Ah, my 30K/40K random army. This has become my current priority. I have been playing them against both 30K armies and 40K armies. There is so much I want to do with this army; I just have to keep going.

Severus came up with the idea that I should paint one legionnaire from every Legion to be the saboteur. I have only five legions left to complete. I also ordered a Fire Raptor, 10 Headhunters, and a bunch of shoulder pads to complete more of this army.

Necrons:

SOLD! I have one model left that I wanted, but the rest have been sold!

Dark Elves:

Shhhh! Don’t tell GW, but thanks to their move to Age of Sigmar, I decided to use my elves for Kings of War. This sudden move to a new game has motivated me. I have been painting one of the units, and even I have to admit that I like how it looks. It still has a way to go, but I plan on starting to play KoW soon. I need to learn to play.

I have no plans on expanding the army right now, but I should use the army since I have invested so much into the army.

 General Hobbying:

I have seemed to slide into becoming a hoarder of books. I ordered all of the GW Campaign books, and have even gotten a couple of the FW book as well. I also ordered a tile for Zone Mortalis, but this is mostly for display purposes.

 

That’s all for now. I shall return again soon.

 

And maybe we can get Severus blogging again… if he’s not too busy with his life as a professor.
