It's time to get some work done! well.. past time actually...

 Hey all! .. long time no work..  it's actually been about 7 months since I've put brush to model. Pretty sad but the move pretty much canceled any ability for me to get something done! NOVA 2018 is only about a month away and I need to get something done. I setup my my painting desk in a temporary location as I haven't finished that room yet. Sadly it's going to have to wait till post NOVA.

I had some plans I wanted to get done for this year but again the move pretty much changed all that. Thankfully I mostly finished up my Sicaran but I do want to add some more final details. I also got the Leviathan Dread pretty far along so it shouldn't take much extra work. But sadly I feel like a lot of rust has built up and I'm going to have to break some of that free first.
 One of the things I want to get done is the Dread Drop Pod to transport the Leviathan to the battle field. But wow this thing is a mess. There are a lot of gaps on it so I'm trying to get it as lined up as possible. I magnetized the doors so hopefully that will be helpful but at least it will make it easier to paint.
 The other thing I had planned was to replace all of the Mark IV Tacticals with the Recon Models. I figure the cloaked look would really fit with the Raven Guard. I'm still waiting on the helmets and shoulders to come in but when they get here I'll be starting on them too. Hopefully, It might be too much as I want to do the digital camo on their cloaks. But as I'm waiting I can still knock the bases out...
 I got some of the new (well they were new about 7 months ago haha) GW industrial bases to mix up the metal look I've been going with for the RG.
 So to get back in the swing of things I sat down to a wonderfully exciting masking session haha.. blah. But, you got to do what you got to do. I'm going to add color to the bases to separate the two squads. One will be a red and the other will be the while color I've been using for the RG.
 I got most of the red bases done but I ran out of time for the white accented bases. I had to get to bed so tonight I'll try to get them done. Once that done I'm going start adding the other metals into the other parts as well as the wiring. Once that's done I'm going to start to muck it up .. this needs to get done but will also get my weathering juices flowing... I need to get my skills back up to par... 8)
This weekend I also got my garage shelves built so I can start to move some of the boxes out of the basement. One more step closer to finishing up the painting room in the basement! Whoot..  Was a pain to build solo but I got'r dun!
