Whats on my palette?

Bless me readers for I have sinned, it's been over 2 months since my last confession.


If you recall my last 'What's on my palette?' you'll know I was focusing on the 'big 3':
  • Tyranid Hierophant
  • Forgebane Warglaive Armigers
  • Old Skool/Nu Skool Razorback
The Warglaive got To Done and the Hierophant is so close I can almost taste it [although there's not much to share, hence no post on Monday]. But I also had three 'big builds' that I threw in the mix as distractions:
  • Build the last 3 Future Containers
  • Build/paint my 0.5 Armies on Parade/display base
  • Build my Sanctum Imperialis 
The first two got To Done and I've moved the containers onto painting, while the Sanctum Imperialis was paused at it's priming. So, with a little over a month left of the Hobby Season what can I get done? I'm confident the Hierophant will be complete this week, just toxic glows, varnishes and Tamiya Clear Red X-27 to do now. Then it'll be the Razorback, and I'll finish off painting the containers at the same time.


That should leave me with a week or two to play with. The Shadespire Fireslayers could get back on the table but I also need to build my Imperial Knight bases. Liam is busy re-posing one set of legs to be walking 'in motion' for me. All I have to do is the base and bond the foot to it so it can support the entirety on one leg. Now I found an old Ben10 toy that I cut down to make some kind of buried silo. I can't decide if this would be ideal for the 'in motion' Knight stepping off.



Or the second Knight stepping on the silo?


Option one will be really dynamic, but I can theoretically make a mound out of anything to achieve a similar pose, whereas I don't have anything quite so interesting for the stepping on pose. Alternatively there is this base on ebay at the moment from dands-gaming that looks really cool, that would work for the 'in motion' Knight and make my decision for me...


What do you think?
