Time always gets away from me! Sorry for no update in the past 2 weeks lads, life has well, been life, and always busy! I have however been in the mood to play some Menoth lately. I've been rambling about it for about 2 years now to a few of my friends about a Testament list, and well, the other day I went and bought it lol.

I have a big weekend coming up (Good Friday and Easter) and plan to do a lot of building and painting. Sorry for no pictures right now sadly.

Here's what I'm running at the moment, subject to change after play testing of course.

Testament of Menoth
Avatar of Awesomeness(ok ok, Menoth)

Cleansers - min unit
Exemplar Errants - full unit with UA
Choir - min unit
Covenant of Menoth

I have a lot more I've already decided on adding to the list, but that's what I managed to pick up, and figured I wouldn't overwhelm myself to the building and painting in one weekend lol. My goal is to get the Testament and the Choir done by Friday and to start the Cleansers Saturday and hopefully finish them off Sunday evening. I'm not going for the normal OCD painting standard I usually enforce on myself, so that I can actually have some painted models on the table, rather than just one model painted lol.

But I'll post again tomorrow with WIP shots!

A little late, but better than never!

Hi guys!

Running a little late with the post for this week, and from mid last week. I tried, but a few things got in the way. But to the good stuff now!

As per previous comments, Supportbyfire, I have yet to try a digi camo scheme yet. I had something whipped up with the airbrush, but the prep time on the test model was more than I wanted to spend on an entire army! lol. I might end up going with a easy tan desert scheme sadly. But I'm still going to try a few different experiments to see if I can at least get a nice blended or sprayed on camo blend.

This past weekend I managed to set up a little painting station, rather than painting on my TV Tray as usual. I rather like it, gives me a lot more space, for painting and modeling.

I also picked up a few more Cryx models for the army I was going to do for the Online Gaming Journal on the PP Forums. Sadly I haven't see much of it on there yet, as I believe it was postponed, but hopefully it'll come up again and we can start it! Otherwise I might just have to start painting these models before then!

I managed to get Epic Skarre, and some Satyxis Blood Witches. Sadly they didn't have any Raiders in stock, not for a while too :(, I was hoping to get some of those as well for a small Skarre force. I managed to get a Malice (upgrade kit and plastic kit together) for a fairly cheap price, couldn't resist! So I might give it a try as well, model wise, I like the look, rules don't see that bad either.

I also worked on Epic Doomshaper some over the weekend. Almost got the skin tone where I want it. Hopefully I'll get to work on him a little more this week as well. Sorry for the poor lighting, now with the bit of extra free time I have, I'm going to get a light box set up hopefully this weekend.

Again I'm hoping to update this again by the weekend, trying to motivate myself more and post at least twice a week rather than once a week. Slowly getting there!

Until next time lads, cheers!
