Another heavy weapons team

Hope you all had a good xmas and Santa brought you lots of hobby goodness. We're slowly getting back into routine, I should have been working today, but I decided to extend the holiday by a day as the eldest two are staying for an extra day.

On the present front, personally I didn't get much this year. Firstly, I didn't really ask for much 40k stuff as I'm trying to get the plastic crack mountain down to a hill. Secondly, there's an ongoing xmas theme with the nearest and dearest where she tries her best on the 40k front, but something always goes a bit wrong. This christmas was no different, first off, she got me the Rogue Trader rulebook, well, she actually got me two copies as she won both ebay auctions. So, I'm not sure which to keep, the hardback or the softback, but one will be heading for ebay. Also, I've had an itch for Advance Heroquest recently, so my lovely wife scoured ebay and christmas morning, there I was, opening Heroquest by MB games ..... gutted but great fun with the family that evening.



I managed to do a little hobby stuff, I finished the final heavy weapons team for 2nd platoon. That leaves the final squad which I've already put together and undercoated ready to paint. Once they're done, I've finished the 100 man platoon. I also dugout my sentinel halftrack and undercoated it ready for painting, it's going to be the escort for my command section.

Seeing the date you converted that half track sentinal, to now that you've finally got it undercoated, it's encouraging to know I'm not the only one who has ADD when it comes to projects.

A typical project for me goes like this -
"MWha ha ha what a diabolical plan, convert it all up, yes I look forward to unleashing this on my enemies... but wait... this inspires me to do something for that other army over there..." *goes back to bitzbox, and might return to project sometime in the next 6 months...*

Keep the Hardback! They are always nicer:)

I'd keep the hardback myself as well...

I throw my vote in for the hardback.

As usual the weapons teams look very great.

@Ginge - yeah, it's been hanging around in my model box for quite a while.

I think I will keep the hardback, I remember how all the pages fell out of my old softback.

Could you post a parts list and creat a template for the scratchbuilt parts of the Halftrack? Please.

Bye the way....How is the little one doing? No lingering effects I hope?

"Plastic crack mountain"

Having spent every spare moment gluing and painting for the best part of a year, I thought I was over some kind of hump.

But it keeps getting worse. I find myself laughing and crying at the same time.

Good luck with your plastic crack mountain. I'm not touching mine until its a bit warmer in the garage.
