(finally) convert the old style Screaming Bell to not look too weedy.  This will never happen as it's just so tiny, cue a purchase of the plastic kit later in the year

Nonsense Tom - all you need is balsa wood. Behold!



Disclaimer: Pip's screaming bell may or may not be a practical model for gaming purposes. Pip accepts no responsibility for injuries sustained while using a stupidly oversized screaming bell.

Corrected the spelling on that one for you  :wink;m::

Pip, that's genius.  To Hobbycraft!

Totally my mistake. After some hours in the Clan Moulder re-education camps, I now realise it's actually TRIPLE AWESOME..

      No particular order (because that would just be silly):

      - Finish my Imperial Knight (hope to get this pretty much done over Christmas, to pave the way in 2015 for.... lots of Blood Angels!!!).

      - Start with minor model updates to my BAs because of the new book (thankfully the lists I tend to run were not overtly affected by the new FOC/unit changes):
      • Company Champion for my now "Command" Squad (Honour Guard dammit!)
      • 2 Jump Assault Sergeants, double Inferno Pistol, double Hand Flamer
      • 2 Jump Assault Flamers
      • Foot-slogging Priest

      - Continue the painting plan of doing "X" large kit and "X" unit/model in tandem (to keep things fresh and to keep painting momentum) and to expand my BA options, in no particular order:
      • Sicaran Battle Tank
      • Damocles Command Rhino
      • Stormraven Gunship
      • Sanguinary Guard Squad with various load-outs
      • Jump DC with options
      • Commander Dante
      • Second Jump Librarian
      • CC Scout Squad
      • Double Melta Attack Bike Squad

      - Carry on doing some scenery related stuff:
      • Buy a gaming mat from Frontline Games (because they are sweeeeeettt)
      • Finish my Imperial Statuary piece
      • Some more craters/barricades
      • Mechanicus themed Skyport (using various scenery kits to create a multi-level Skyshield type arrangement

      - Maybe try and get back to doing some more on the Chapter Fortress... though again this will be unlikely, knowing me.

      - General additions:
      • Imperial Assassins, all of them
      • Maybe some Wolf Allies

      That should keep me going, and now that it's all written down I have something tangible to refer to this time next year to see how well I..... FAILED!

1. Finish the Skaven army.  Very little to do now, just a second unit of Jezzails, Plague Furnace and (finally) convert the old style Screaming Bell to not look too weedy.  This will never happen as it's just so tiny, cue a purchase of the plastic kit later in the year  :wink;m::

I started a skaven army about a month ago, painting has picked up recently on them, and I'm quite enthused about them so hoping to get an army done first few months of this year. I bought some wind globadiers and jezzails and now it looks like the former at least might be released as a plastic kit for the next End times book if the rumourmill be true.

From the leaked image of the new Vermin Lord I think my Skaven army may actually have some further recruits to come in 2015 - Globadiers could be a nice looking addition, although I've never had any lucky with them in games (4+ to do 1 wound is pretty poor in a world  of monstrous cav).

If the alleged armoured rat ogres and a new Thanquol are also in the offing...sigh, it's going to be an expensive January!

Late to the party but in brief:

- Try my hand at painting, I'm very aware of the overwhelming greyness of all my game minis having seen the threads on here and the models at the club...

- Survival of an entire dungeon in Warhammer Quest, preferably without needing ressurection.

- More Descent!
