Let there be light...

Afternoon,

     While I was finishing up my Tech priest I had one of my lamps burn out.



     So I went into town looking for some new bulbs and actually scored a new bulb for each lamp.  On sale even.    But the lamp still doesn't work.  So I must have burnt out the entire lamp.   So a quick order into Amazon and I got this in the mail yesterday.


So some unboxing and rearranging and let there be light...

Yayyyyyyy.

Palette Cleansing...

Morning,

    I decided to paint a single model to cleanse my palette a bit before I dive into my Malifaux stuff.  That and I am printing out some pieces for the Von Schill display tray.

    So I picked up a Adeptus Mechanicus Tech Priest Dominus when they came out a couple weeks ago.  I decided to try out a color scheme on him.  Even if I am kinda annoyed with GW at the moment they do make some great models.



I almost missed the instructions, didn't realize he would even come with some.

Hmmmm, I'm thinking Black and Brass

W.I.P

Finished, I think the base may need a bit more something else




 



I like it, but I am kinda getting a Dark Mechanicus Vibe...
Anyone else?

     
     Now once my printer finishes the terrain pieces for the Von Schill tray, Malifaux will be worked on next...

End Times...????

Morning,

     I was excited to work on a new version of my dwarf army, till this happened

(Not my Local store but same outcome)

     This damn near run my muse out of the house.  Yes I know I can continue playing 8th with what I have (which is alot, hell I got 3-4 armies not even assembled yet).   What gets me is that GW is dropping so much stuff for 40K so fast, 40K players heads are spinning.  Yet us WHFB players just get this damn little poster and webstore notes saying the army books are no longer for sale after June 26th.   Would it hurt them to give us a bit of a heads up of WTF is going on.  Yes its a new edition, but are we talking, we are combining books/Ravening hordes.  Or is it more whats warhammer?, this is LOTR warhammer style.  Or yeah you can still use your new stuff as terrain pieces...

     Yes, I am still planning on picking up Age of Sigmar.  And, I am hoping for the best, but the pulling of Armybooks means its a hell of alot more than a new edition, which is  a concern.   I like WHFB, yes the armies were big, but that was the fun, they looked like armies.   
  
     I am going to give it a shot, but if GW completely jumps the shark...  I dont know, I have a lot of money and time invested in GW games.  I will be massively disappointed if I don't like it.... 

     Hopefully all this will settle out in the wash, and Age of Sigmar will be a great game, where yes I can still use 90% of my old stuff and get some cool new stuff to.  I am hopeful, just concerned, GW should have told us something now, you don't just say yeah we are pulling all our stuff and just put out a little damn poster without ruffling feathers...

     Consider my feathers ruffled....


    Today I am moving all my WHFB in progress and boxed stuff to the Closet of lost Hope, till we get more information.  I think I am going to work on the pile of Malifaux stuff till things settle down, I my need a new game.  I like 40k, but I just dont know.  IF GW screws WHFB players to much....  I just don't know, as of the moment I can't see myself not picking GW stuff up, maybe I will have to change to 40K, or just bite the bullet and play 8th round the house and not buy GW stuff, which is sad I am even typing that out.


Okay thats enough of me bitching, sorry for that.  I have been adding and editing and deleting this post for a couple weeks now.  Figured I may as well post it.  I am off to move stuff around and glue my fingers together assembling malifaux stuff.

Later,
