Its been a couple weeks since my last post, with lots of things happening lately. Unfortunately, only some of it has been hobby related. Its amazing how life can kick you in the balls sometimes, and it takes a bit to roll with the kicks. That aside, hobby work is getting back on track and I did complete a couple additional models.
First we have a new Phoenix Lord joining the group. Phoenix Lord Asurmen, The Hand of Asuryan has been painted up and added to the case.
Asurmen, first of the Dire Avengers, founded more shrines on more craftworlds than any other Phoenix Lord. Soon after their inception he vanished, but tales of his deeds persisted. He was reported fighting against the Great Enemy from the Eye of Terror to the galaxy's rim, and word of his valour spread.
In addition to working on Asurmen, I also completed a couple Warlocks and a Bonesinger.
So that is the work completed toward the Dead Tau Project. You will also notice a new abbreviation on my assembly tray [Mal]. Those who have listened to the Gamers Lounge podcast know that I have just recently played two introduction games for Malifaux by Wyrd Games. Based on that introduction, I have been hooked and decided to pick up a couple crews along with the rule book. During my introduction I played two crews from two different factions. I played the Ortega crew from the Guild Faction, along with the McMourning crew from the resurectionists. I will be playing Malifaux as my secondary (tertiary) game as a alternative to my GW fix.
As it came to picking up a crew of my own, I decided to go with Lady Justice from the Guild faction:
As a nice surprise, my wife took a look at some of the models and found a faction she liked as well. I will be painting up the crew she liked and teaching her the game. Hopefully she takes a liking.
Thats it for now. Keep an eye on the blog for new stuff through the summer.
