What Are You Building Over Christmas?

December 19, 2011 ·

December 19, 2011

Ah, Christmas!

A time for festivities, family, good will to all men... and a few blessed days off work to frantically build and paint your little plastic dudes with their little plastic guns!

But it really is the perfect time for this sort of thing, isn't it? Because it's cold outside, there isn't much to do out there, business has pretty much closed down for the festive period and all you do is spend your time with friends and family. Which is even better if those friends happen to be gaming buddies.

So I'm planning to spend my time at James's place, or he and Marc can come to mine, we'll stick either all the Lord Of The Rings, ALIENS or Predator films on the telly and glue and paint to our heart's content.

And because New Year's Eve has been so ghastly, expensive and utterly disappointing in recent years, the guys are coming over for an evening of food, drink and games. Most likely Space Hulk, Zombies!!! and Super Dungeon Explore before finishing off with some terrible horror movies. You know, the kind that are SO BAD that they go full circle and somehow become GOOD.

Anyway, while there's no way that I'm getting through all 4 of these Tau Battle Forces, I'll do my best to get 1 of them done. I'm going to have to spend some serious time on my army if I want it to be ready in time for the next Tau Codex.

But in the meantime, what's going to be on your painting desk for Christmas?

better get those hands working now!
If i could give you a tip it would be to start with : 2 FW squads, 1 kroot and all the battlesuits and DevilFishs you have.
This is pretty much what will be the most usefull to you in the first place ;)

For me? i guess i'll be working on my warmachine cygnar army, just relax and maybe find some personal projects to extend my programming skills.

Good hunting Shas'o! ( i would have say happy holydays but i don't think we get those in the 41 millenium.)

Terminators with Lightning claws to compliment my ones with T&SS.
And then lots and lots of Ogres. Should be a good Christmas break.
