Finding Time to Hobby

If you haven’t noticed it’s been a while since I’ve posted regularly. Life unfortunately can get busy. Who ever thought that adulting could be so difficult. As children we often assume that when we grow up we can do what we want when we want and no one can tell us otherwise. We quickly learn that the only time in our life that this is the case is in college.

Tech Priest Dominus Painting

Welcome to part two of this post in my Tech Priest Dominus Painting. I am very excited to paint this guy up. Coming from Infinity the Game Warhammer 40k miniatures feel huge. I’m hoping that my abilities with painting have improved since the last time I painted Warhammer over 15 years ago. Let’s get started. Click read more to see the progression of this guy.

If you are new to how I do this each update I copy what I had already done and I add in the progress I made this week. When I am done it is a long step by step progression of the miniature.

Adeptus Mechanicus Assembly

I spent my weekend building my newly aquired Adeptus Mechanicus troops. I purchased the start collecting Skitarii collection and I added in a detachment of Kataphrom Destroyers. Doing the math on what I own I have a grand total of 31 power. That is not very much. I will need quite a few more troops and things to bulk up my army and actually play.

The color scheme is still up in the air. I’m thinking of doing a royal purple color for all of their robes. Purple will most likely be the accent color for their armor, but we’ll see. I also need to base them all, but that doesn’t take very long to get done. The only one I built not pictured is the Onegar Dunecrawler.

Coming from Infinity the Game where an army consists of between 10-16 troops assembling this many guys made me feel like I’m falling very far behind on my painting, but it’s just a difference in game types. Warhammer 40k is an army building game and Infinity the game is a skirmish game.

To my fans that play Infinity, don’t worry I’m still playing infinity regularly as my main game, but I want to get back into 40k.

Warhammer 40k 8th Edition

It has been a very long times since I’ve played Warhammer. Over 15 years in fact. I have long since sold my beloved Space Wolf Army and distanced myself from the game. With the advent of the new rule set I have decided to once again play Warhammer 40k. I spent an afternoon reading lore and deciding who I wanted to play and how and I finally decided that the Adeptus Mechanicus is for me. A big factor on my decision to go with these guys was their aesthetics. I really like how the whole faction looks. They look like they should be the steam punk Chaos Space Marine offshoot, but they’re good.
