This Week in Hobby – 5.1.17


Well another month flew by … and the days are slowly getting lighter and warmer. Spring is in the air as they say.  I’m enjoying the time between showers to get outside for relaxing as well as some work in the yard. 

On they painting table this week I’ve gotten several more Dark-Age Outcasts completed. 


Nathaniel and Orchid… came together pretty nicely. I had a clear vision on a paint scheme… and I’m happy with how they turned out. 


I got Hoj done – tying him into a similar theme as Nathaniel & Orchid.  I really feel that the system is working well for the Outcasts… I’m hoping to repeat it with the next faction I paint. 


I found time this weekend to finish up the Outcasts Warchief.  Again this one went quickly. I’m over halfway completed with the Outcasts now. 


I also added these too additions to the Outcasts last week. I’m hoping to get them base colored in this week.

Lastly, I picked up this addition to my classic Eldar collection…  


I’m hoping to get this paint ready soon and have it in gaming shape soon after.

Apocalypse – toys

Ohh I did some eBay shopping… I found this one a few weeks ago – I now have a Cobra to go with my ArmorCast Scorpion.

I have never been totally happy with the Scorpion paint and modeling…. and the cobra is worse as far as I am concerned.  The cobra also appears to be missing some bits.  My plan is to strip both of these and paint them to match closer to my other Eldar forces…. and the Phantom Titan.  For now they will stay this way – until I get time for them.

The Scorpion has nice paint for the wraith bone elements.  But the theme doesn’t fit my army well on the blue – cammo.  I will try to put a light primer brush on coat… only on the top parts.  There are some modeling and magnetizing to do as well.  The bone colors will just get a lightening up – to better match the bone on my style.

The Cobra is really not even close to what I expect for my stuff… it will be fully stripped and redone – to match whatever I end up doing to the Scorpion.
