Last time I set the rather lofty goal of getting together all the superfluous models and scenery needed to play in the Badzones settings of the Book of Peril. While I like nothing more than fleshing out my tabletop world, I am always cognizant of the costs involved. Which is to say that Games Workshop stuff is the top of the pile in price as well as quality.
Brushes down! The countdown to the Indomitus release is complete, and hopefully so is Chris’s Necron project! Let’s find out how it went, and see the end results…
The clock is ticking down on staff painter Chris’s project to paint all of the Necrons in the new 40k Indomitus box in time for release day. Can he do it? Let’s check in once more:
Time to the release of the new Indomitus box for Warhammer 40k is counting down. Staff painter Chris is painting up the Necron half of our display set – let’s see how it’s progressing:
Our Indomitus display set won’t paint itself – when it comes to the Necrons, staff painter Chris is on the job. Let’s see how he’s progressing:
Having amassed enough models and scenery, and now waiting for a future time to play, I find myself looking around the hobby desk for some small and simple time-filling projects to keep me busy while I enjoy my alone time from the gaming table. One of the main aims of my Necromunda fixation is to produce a table so choked with terrain that models will be lucky to ever have long range on their opponents, ensuring some close combat as well as crazy shooting.
More scenery means more violence!
‘More’ is all fine and good but I need a break from spending money. Pretty simple to backwards engineer the project from there: More Stuff + No Money = Garbage for Materials…
I finally have enough stuff done to play!
Cue Virus lock-down…
With no small amount of effort and time already spent on construction of modest Sector Mechanicus and Zone Mortalis playing areas behind me, I was looking forward to writing up my gang cards and getting some games in against other, actual humans. Alas, this was not yet to be. Rather than get bogged down and just starting in on yet another Netflix binge I thought I’d use lock-down to get busy!
The big news these days in the world of Warhammer 40k is of course the upcoming Indomitus box set, ushering in a new edition of the game as well as a whole host of new models. As is typical for releases like this, we have a display set from Games Workshop specifically to promote the new edition and its exciting new content. BUT, that also means that we’re expected to have the armies from the set painted, finished and ready to display come release day – just two weeks away! As one of our staff painters, I got the job of completing one half of the models included in Indomitus, and since I had to do the Space Marines for the last set back at the start of 8th Edition, I called dibs on the Necrons. I thought that you, our dear readers, might also enjoy a peek behind the curtain and a live look at my progress as I work on this project.
My name’s Chris, and I’m here to paint robots!
A little while back, we took a look at some of the paint ranges we carry here in the store and highlighted some great colors from other manufacturers you might want to try if you’re used to only using Games Workshop’s Citadel range. It was especially relevant at the time since we had been unable to restock our Citadel racks due to the shutdown – but since that particular problem has been gone for a bit, we thought you might also like to hear our resident paint expert Chris’s thoughts on our Citadel paints in the same way we’ve already seen for other brands we have.
