Weekly Hobby Update : 8-30-17

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Safe travels to everyone on their way to Nova Open and please feel free to say "Hi: if you see me around the convention when I arrive late Thursday night.  If you are not able to attend you can follow what I am doing there via Twitter as always.  Now, on to my Hobby from the past week and there is a lot of Red and White being put on models.  Honestly, I look forward to doing any other color with my next army, but it has been nice to tackle the challenging color of white to add it comfortably to my list of Hobby Tools.  Perhaps I will try to incorporate yellow into my next army if I find myself motivated or inspired to do so.

I finished up two Slaughterpriests bringing my total up to three to maximize my Gore Pilgrims Bubble is I find the need to do just that.  I really love this sculpt and was very happy that it came free with White Dwarf during its Monthly relaunch.  It made getting my hands on a few very easy.  I may even try to get a few more to do some fun conversions in te future.

I may be in the minority but neither one of these models are my favorite in the range despite the nice sculpting job.  There aesthetic never clicked for me even though they are very Khornate and Chaos inspired, but after painting them I found a new appreciation and I hope we see a Korgorath kit soon to add more dynamic poses to the model as I wouldn't mind adding one or two to my army.

A might army needs it's Might Lord and he was a joy to paint and not as challenging as I expected he would be to complete to nice Tabletop level.  Up next is my Chaos Warshrine converted to be carried by Bloodreavers.  It looks to offer a real challenge, but I am excited to see how it turns out as one of the armies centerpieces.  Not pictured are a Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage and Skarbrand which I am very excited to paint in the coming weeks.

My last bit of hobby was the addition of a converted Knight-Heraldor which is part of my Nova Open army this weekend. I enjoy how simple and fluid Stormcast painting Stormcast has become for me, but sticking with the same army for a few year will do that I suppose.  It is a bit bittersweet knowing this will be the last Stormcast I will be painting for a while unless Blightwar sinks its teeth into me, but I am excited to begin rebasing my Aelves and possibly painting the Sylvaneth that have been sitting on my Hobby Desk for the past year.

Until Friday, Happy Hobbying!
