Painting So Far...

So we got to Vegas at around 5pm today, and I haven't left our hotel room since.  Unfortunately, due to Google Chrome's Angry Birds App, I only painted five models.  Here they are:




On this Terminator, I kind of tried to do blending on the fist, but I had a bit of trouble.  I still think it turned out okay.


On this guy I just did what I usually do for 'glow' effects and he turned out okay.

This is going to be the Sergeant for my Sternguard unit



And this is just a Tactical Sergeant.  The camera doesn't show, but he has a double-sided chainsword.


So what do you think of them?  I know they weren't based when I took the photo, and that some of the edging is bad (not fixed yet, but I intend to), but other than that, what do you guys and girls think?

Incoming: 5k Apocalypse Battle Report

Coming up this weekend is a going to be a 5k v 5k battle report, my Space Marines/Guardsmen vs. my friend Travs' Apocalypse Angel army.  I'll be going to Las Vegas for next week, so expect some painting posts after the batrep.

Meanwhile, does anyone have some suggestions for things a 14 year old can do in Vegas?  I'd ask my friends, but their first suggestion was other 14 year olds....Get it?  Anyways, I hope Travis is ready for a good beatdown!

Summertime

So I graduated yesterday, my summer vacation has officially begun.  I know, I should have taken pictures of the models I gave my teachers, but I didn't get the chance, I literally woke up at 5 in the morning to finish them.  On the flip side, everyone enjoyed their models and I intend to photograph them when I visit.  Meanwhile, I finally have the time to play a game of  40k, which I will be doing next week.  I know that my blog has mostly been lacking in hobby-related posts, but that will be changing soon.

So here's my to-do list for the next couple of months-
1)  Build a paint shelf out of sheet acrylic
2)  Paint at least 500 points for my army/week
3)  Get at least 2 games in a month

With the other stuff going on (internship, TA work, and some random event that pops up) I should have plenty to do.
