Now I realize I have spoken about burnout in the hobby. I spent a great deal of time discussing it on Gamers Lounge Ep. 16. I have also spent a great deal of time playing and doing things related to Malifaux. I am now a Wyrd henchman, which means I get cool little sneak peaks, access to the back-end Henchman community, and get incentives to run tournaments and events for Malifaux. Thats been very cool, its been a very long time since I took part in a program such as that. On top of that I have been just ENJOYING Malifaux more than 40K. It comes together for me in a weird way that 40K just doesn't. I also find that I am preferring the skirmish size games more than I did 40K games in general.
The Dead Tau project is not dead however, have no fear. It felt nice to pull out my Phoenix last night and touch it up some. It was nice to take pictures, which I hope come out. I also have a Thanksgiving event coming up that I am kind of looking forward to. Its a Tanksgiving event at the local hobby shop (Huzzah Hobbies if your in the area) and I have committed to bringing out my Titan and my Phoenix for the event. I am fairly certain my Titan will not be "completed" within the next 3 weeks, but I will have it at a place where I am comfortable putting it on the table. I plan to take my airbrush to it this week or weekend and get things started. As for my Phoenix, I expect it will only be a bit more work to get that complete. The trouble will be creating a nice flying base for it after I complete the plane.
Overall, I will have some new pictures up in the next couple days. I am also starting to look at a 1500 point, travel friendly, Eldar list to pack up and take out to California in a couple weeks. I am headed out there for work and will be meeting up (if things go well) with the Independent Characters (Geoff and Carl) along with Big Jim! I am looking forward to getting a couple games in!
