Hi all, well as you may have guessed its another of those damnable plogs in which the instance, I will request of you the reader/viewer motivation in reducing my build pile.
To date I have four major forces on the go, Marines, Tau, Guard and Tyranids.
Now I have a battle companies worth of painted marines but its the assembled and unpainted models that demand attention, I have reluctantly concluded that I will be unable to buy any new coolness that is released until I have made a significant dent in my build pile.
The two main offenders are Tau and Tyranids
Assembled Tau units awaiting paint are:
5 x Piranhas
3 x Piranhas TX42
3 x Devilfish
1 x Railhead
1 x Sky Ray
1 x FW Fusion head
1 x Stealth Team of the XV25 flavour.
Some examples of my completed units can be found here
1 x Battleforce all assembled and primed, these are on hiatus as I can't for the life of me decide what colour to paint them.
Now for the other two offeneders Guard and Marines.
Unassembled guard units are limited to tanks for the most part, a russ, basilisk, hellhound and a couple chimeras. I have a boat load of troops though and these are calling out to me too. I have decided to repaint my guard to match with the new scheme I have on my Vultures although I may leave the painted Chimera as is.
Marines are my first love and what got me into 40k back in the day, I have collected the 2nd Ultra Battle company from back in the day when that was about the only one that was known. I have five rhinos part assembled and awaiting completion and at least 100 marines clipped from the sprues awaiting the chance to fight.
I think the tau are first on the list and indeed I spent the past weekend assembling a diorama of sorts to hold my grav tanks.
With this decided I will begin green stuffing the gaps on the fishies and generally prep all vehicles for priming with luck that stage will occur at the weekend.
Wish me luck if you would.
