Don't Yuck My Yum

That's a term I think originated with the food bloggers and has crept across various subcultures recently, and it's a term I really quite like.  "Don't yuck my yum" - stop trying to dampen my enthusiasm just because you're not fond of something.  Unfortunately this is a lesson I think we could do with learning in the wargaming community, given our obsession with being the "best" nerd in the room.

A Year's Oath, Week Ten

"I shall paint one model every week, without fail, for a year."

Week ten sees a return to Infinity with my Nomad's Lt (ssshhh, don't tell anyone!), my Reverend Custodier.


I've actually done a few more touch-ups after this picture was taken, but such is the nature of my affliction.  Once the weather is nice enough I'll get her sealed, then there's no more temptation to meddle!

A Year's Oath, Week Nine

"I shall paint one model every week, without fail, for a year."


Wow, time flies when you have a new baby.  Not been able to get out of the whirlwind long enough to do much, but I did manage to finish my Necron Destroyer Lord, Svikarin, for a successful week nine.


Not much to say about this guy.  The model is top half Lichguard / Triarch Praetorian bits, the bottom half is just a Wraith's tail.  I thought as it's my warlord it was probably about time to give him a decent base (plus, as a Destroyer, legally he needs to be on at least a base as big as a large flying base), so I bought this base from Micro Art Studio and I'm pretty impressed.  I might start using more of their bases outside of my Infinity models.

The only thing left to do on him is to gloss up his armour plates, but that needs to wait until he's dry and been sealed.

A Year's Oath, Weeks Five and Six

"I shall paint one model every week, without fail, for a year."

I have an excuse for this one!

See, I spent week five making this:


So I didn't exactly get much painting done.  I'm not even mad.

Week six however saw me finish a Nomad Zero that's been going on so long I'm sick of the sight of him:



I'm not super happy with the way this guy turned out (and I've made a few little touch-ups afterwards), but he's now varnished and sealed so, as they say on Arrakis - "It is complete, because it ends here."

A Year's Oath, Week Four

"I shall paint one model every week, without fail, for a year."

This was a slight change to the usual program.  Rather than paint one model I finished one I was working on and then repaired all the damage the other two had taken from having their bases changed and general play.  I hadn't appreciated how badly the paint would wear before I put them on the table, so there was a fair amount of stuff needing fixing.  Still, they're now done and sealed - no more damage!
