They are getting there! Slowly, but ever so surely, they are getting there. Hello! It’s me! I’ve been away for too long again, but I am back and I’m going to get this squad done if it bloody well kills me. 😉
Life has an uncanny knack of getting in the way, doesn’t it? Well, my lack of blogging and my severe lack of painting is down to life happening and me having to engage with it. The last few weeks have been hectic and unavoidable and so my work on the Blood Angels has fallen by the wayside somewhat but I’m back on the case now and soon, hopefully, I will have a full squad to show off to you.
The above are the latest complete additions to the squad. They are the black blades, as opposed to the hazard-striped blades from the last update. They also feature the chap with his legion vexilla which was a fun addition to paint that I think ended up looking pretty cool too. Anyway, this is just a quick post to ensure you that I, in the words of Granny Weatherwax ‘Aten’t dead’.
I’ve now got 20 pieces to do. Just 20. Four right arms, four left arms, four back packs and eight shoulder pads. That’s not much and hopefully, soon, I will be done. Above is the chainsword-wielding arm that I’m working on at the moment. I will confess, that I’m very bored/sick with painting chainswords but that will come to an end soon. Soon!
Bolt-pistols can also do one. I cant tell you how much I am looking forward to working on characters – single miniatures! – with no sodding chainswords or bolt-pistols in sight. Chainfists; they’re fine. But we’ll get there soon. Hopefully I’ll have some time this Saturday and if I can get a couple of pieces done every day, I’ll have a complete squad to show you in a week’s time! Here’s hoping.
Anyway, like I said, this is just a quick update to reassure you I still exist. More posts will come soon, and if you’re desperate to read more of my words, you can check out my new blog that has absolutely nothing to do with toy soldiers, but will hopefully be invaluable if you ever want to go to a pub in London, because it’s the londonpubblog.com – enjoy!
Right. If I go to bed now, I might be able to finish a couple of bits in the morning before I head out again. Onwards!
