Slow but Steady Stompa progress!

Very much in theme with the Previous post I too have some solid Hobbying objectives... though, most of mine are somewhat restrictive in nature!

Last year, I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more models until I had painted the ones I had (for the record this was somewhere close to 10k of Dark Angels, 2k Sisters of Battle, 3k Orks)


I painted 2k of Orks.....

.. Bought more Orks, Bought some Chaos Space Marines (about..., maybe 5k's worth?) Traded Sisters for Tyranids... and bought more Tyranids... (perhaps 6k in total?)

*ahem... *

anyway, this year, my designs are more modest (especially as I got some Elysians for Christmas!)

1) Do NOT start any more armies (I have resigned myself to the fact that I *will* buy more models, restricting it to current armies is at least a step in the right direction!)

2) Paint as many figures as I have made/bought. (to date this is 97 figures and we are still in January... :-O )

3) Build at least 50% of my City Scenery (I won this a couple of years ago in a store auction £100 box for £30, bargain! only, I've never built any yet... *sigh* )

4) Suck less at SVA. (This should be easy, last year I was 0/4/1 W/L/D )

I can't do worse.... (right?)

So there we have it, some Hobby related targets for the New Year!

Onto the update!

so it's been a month (ish) since the last update. I've made what I consider to b e good progress. (it will still be tight to get this Dreadmob finished, but I am beginning to get on a roll I think)

Last time, there wasn't really a single completed model... Well today I can exclusively reveal not one, not two, not three, but FOUR completed* Stompa-Kans!!!

(*when I say complete, I mean built and unbased/painted)

I have also constructed a Kilkannon and Rippa Klaw arm for a Mega Dread (this needs more work, pictures another time)

And furthermore completed all the Structures needed for every Kan/Dread/Mega/Meka Dread. and these shall appear as they are completed. (My wife is also very pleased as this means less blue foam being carved all over the house!)
Hope you enjoy the pictures.
so my progress chart (oh yes) now looks like this.
Meka Dread 0/1
Dread 0/4
Kans 4/15
Mega Dread 0/3
and these have to be ready by Feb 26th you say?
Back to the Mekshop!
