2011 Quarter 2 Project Log For Everyone

Postby mattjgilbert » Sun Apr 03, 2011 1:48 pm

My objectives are:

1. Get storage (I hate having to "waste" money on storage but it's critical now)
2. Paint up my undead army (or the bulk of it)

Yeah Storage is an issue for me as well - knackered all 3 Preds during the March raid to Nottingham!!!

I would like to get one case for each of the Guard and Space wolves - perhaps a wheeled suitcase thing - any advice?

I saw someone suggesting to buy foam trays and then use plastic boxes from the really useful box range: http://www.reallyusefulproducts.co.uk/u ... ge_rub.php

KR cases are good as long as U arent doing too much travelling about. Soft sides of the cases, even with their excellent foam, can still lead to breaks. I've got several for storing the many armies I can't seem to get myself to sell.....

I use these: Worth a look. Sometimes they go on promotion too, at lower prices. They grey case is on discount at the mo:

I think they do other sizes too IIRC.

I like to get the following done for my BA.

10 man Assault Squad
3rd Rhino
2nd Stormraven

Colour donates progress.
Hopefully I'll get more done. But really don't know. The 1st custom SR took over a month on its own.

Well for me it'll be finishing off my HE, got 15 Sea Guard, a chariot, 5 Dragon Princes, 10 Silver Helms, 2 bolt throwers and the characters to do. Then I will finally have my first finished WH army.

Also I will paint up 6 Marines to leagalise the army. My SM army had gone through 3 Codexes virtually unchanged but the move having to have 10 Marines to be able to take special/heavy weapons with the last Codex screwed it up (yes it has taken me that long to get around to doing it!)

Finally if I can rescue the Tau models that (im)Purity Spray ruined then I will try and finish off my Tau army. Need to do 3 Crisis suits, 2 Devilfish, 2 FW Broadsides and a Hammerhead.

Probably being a bit optimistic (ok very optimistic) but I at least want to get the HE done.
