Being a devoted hobbyist, the idea of a snow day makes me happy. Generally though, if there is a snow day then there are probably a few things I can do DIYwise when my better half is around. Storm Emma 1 hit Ireland following "the Beast From The East" 2 and it gave me some free time to paint up some Catachans. Here is the results;
|Sadly these guys will probably be the first removed from units as they are just armed with lasguns. My standard colours for the regiment is used with some light green vest tops for these.|
|More grunts. Accompanied by a vox operator. Now he will probably survive a bit longer. Funnily enough, I still enjoy painting Catachans, good thing too as I have a considerable amount of them left to do!|
So there you have it, 25 models finished in two sessions of painting. These are meant to enable me to field 3 squads of veterans. I have to paint up a missile launcher to go with the loader and maybe a couple of other heavy weapons to give me some other options for future games. Overall I'm chuffed how they came out. My next update will hopefully feature the Eldar I also worked on during the enforced holiday. Either that or a batrep connected to the Scargill Cleansing.
Thanks for Reading.
1) Whoever decided naming storms needs a kick up the hole. Ever since then, weather has become very uppity and has started getting ideas way above their station.
2) Also due a hole kicking is the people behind glamourising cold fronts. "The Beast From The East" is just "The rain in Spain lies mainly on the plain", a rhyme. Sensationalising this crap for the media to get collective hard ons is just bullshit.
