Motivation is hard
The weekend after my last post I took my GSC army to their first event (and my third) at my local club. It was a blast and I had great fun, discovering just how much a unit of 10 Abberants can do on the charge. This should have motivated me to keep up the pace I was keeping to get ready for this event, but instead I was burnt out from painting. Now six weeks, and a Total Warhammer campaign later, I’m still miles away from getting ready.
For NoVA as I wanted to make the most of going to a big event I signed up for two events as I am an idiot. I’m going to make some goals on what I will get ready by my next post.
AT is a game I would love to play more often. Due to changing circumstances, I don’t have people to play with at the moment, which sucks and has left me ignoring my Legio for far too long. I think my biggest issue is due to not seeing it on the table the only models I see are the amazing ones online and this is super disheartening.
Luckily, I’ve learned to embrace my mediocrity and just go for it. In the past few weeks I picked up a cheap airbrush/compressor and used it to helm me along. I’ve put the base colours in on most of my models, they now require more trim, a pin wash and basing. By my next post I hope to have the them based, at which point I better start thinking about what lists to take
The Narrative was the reason for going to NoVA after listening to feedback on the 40K Badcast. I need to get a 2K force figured out, at the moment I’ve got about 1500 points of painted models. The one thing I want to figure out by my next post is if I want to dip into Tyranids and take 50 Genestealers in a Kraken detachment. These are yet to be assembled/painted or played with, so why not add more plastic to the pile. I think it would be kind of awesome to have an ascension day army.
On the next episode
I go overseas on holiday tomorrow, bringing NoVA ever closer. Let’s see where I’m at in three weeks.
