Week 46 - The Ball Starts Rolling...

So an early post this week due to unforeseen circumstances. Not a great deal to report either but things are ticking along once again. I have started to trim up the Asterian Dreadball team so that between Knightwolf and myself we will have all the teams available for games. Then I can start on the Terratons and Nameless. I played a couple of short games using the Zees and Terratons this week, the first was Zees vs Terratons. My poor little monkey clones were stomped by the turtles, it proved very difficult to get past them and with the Zees all being Jacks I just couldn't get the upper hand. The second game was Terratons vs Marauders. This game was also in favour of the turtles, I benched two of the Orc guards in the first rush and just kept scoring one point strikes. Knightwolf just couldn't reclaim much ground but did miss a couple shots that would have made things more even. Painting-wise I have finished up the test model for the Zees, shown below.

The scheme isn't too complicated but I have foregone the dip this time around as I see myself taking these guys, so they can get a decent paint job. Unfortunately the lack of direct light has made the shot a bit dark. There will be better shots when I get more done...

I am going to find myself with some time in the next few days so will be able to trim and assemble some more models. Unfortunately I wont be in a position to paint them but I can at least replenish my stores of assembled models. I have even started planning out my bases for my Ten Thunders crew and am fighting the urge to make a themed table for them... A steampunk rail yard would be a fun table to play on... I have also determined the base colours for my Morat Aggression Force so may have a test model done for those depending on how my week shapes up.

The year is winding up fast and I am nowhere near hitting 500 models, there is still time of course but even that is pushing my maximum output! I may have to settle for 400 but that is still a decent amount for a first try. The real question is 'can I keep it up next year?'
