This year for for my family's Christmas party the elders decided that exchanging names and giving gifts was no longer the way we were doing things. Instead, we would be giving a $10 ornament and playing an exchange game.
While I'm not a fan of this kind of thing, because it takes away the idea of picking something specifically for someone. At the same time if means that I don't have to struggle to figure out something and then worry if the person I was matched up with would like it or not.
That said, as soon as I heard it was a ornament exchange, I knew what I had to do.
Work on continues on the Admech army. I am really happy with the progress so far and its all starting to come together nicely.
In the time since I started this project, the rules for the Friendly at Adepticon have been announced and one of the detachments allowed is Spearhead. In this detachment you field, at a minimum, an HQ unit and 3 units of Heavy Support.
This changed my plan from fielding as many Vanguard as possible, to doing my dream army of a smaller force supporting a bunch of Kastelan Robots.
While working the Ninja Division booth at GenCon, I painted some German soldiers for their new line of WWII era minis, GUTS. I instantly fell in love with them and left with a Sherman tank and a squad of US HQ.
I had big plans for them, but eventually they all went to the back burner. That is until I needed to find something to paint on stream, after I finished Vlad the Impaler. On a whim, I primed the Sherman and went to work on it.
