Whats on my palette?

Bless me #warmongers for I have sinned, it's been nearly a year since my last confession! I've known exactly what I needed to paint so it didn't really require an overview to keep track.

I'm still somewhat focused, but I did feel the need to just list what I've got and the [subject to change] order I have them in. So:
  • Blood Bowl - Nurgle Trio [almost done]
  • Tyranid Void Shield Generator
  • Adeptus Titanicus - at least one Warhound
  • Adeptus Titanicus - weapons
  • Adeptus Titanics - Knight Lancer
  • Blackstone Fortress - Amallyn Shadowguide [she was in my review last Feb!]
  • Blood Bowl - Nurgle [last four]
  • Genestealer Cult - Aberrants
  • Deathwing Land Raider...

I also want to build my Ravenwing Talonmaster, so that needs to fit in there somewhere and some various other Ravenwing bits and bob need building. I'm really lucky in that a lot of these are ready to go/part done. Bad weather and inability to prime isn't a problem. I estimate this log of work can keep me busy well into May/June. It's also handy because some elements overlap - last 4 Nurgle players might have similar bits to my Aberrants, so I can streamline their painting.

I'm feeling really positive and motivated at the moment, which now that I've said it, it could easily evaporate. This time of year is usually the post-Christmas hobby malaise, but I think the massive sense of achievement with the Void Shield Generator has gone some way to inoculate me from feeling down about things. I'm just really looking forward to getting things TO DONE! 


  1. As always, your Tyranid terrain is juuust terrific. I am still in two minds about the Talon Master, my lists have always omitted Ravenwing (which is weird, I think), so I always seem to gravitate towards the Deathwing characters. With, possibly, a Deathwing Lieutenant on the way, I think I'll probably be taking that option.

    1. I don't believe it, we disagree on something? Not actually true, I do indeed prefer Deathwing. I find the bone much easier to paint than black. But somehow the fact I've used the Ravenwing more and I've been able to see their effectiveness I think I'm gravitating more towards them, despite not knowing how to get the best out of them.

      The Talonmaster, or even use it as Sableclaw will add much needed buffs to what I currently have. Add in the Dark Shroud, which has never been used but seems essential for any Ravenwing list and I could have decent force. I've also got 3 attack bikes and 6 more bikes to paint.
