So the Yuma trip was a success. We left later on Saturday than planned, but still made good time. Got to Adam's place and quickly set up our painting area. The plan to use the three seperate folding tables worked great and allowed us each plenty of room. Saturday was really my day in the zone. I immediately started in with the Obliterators, changing any old markings to the new army and getting them knocked out
Next I hit the Nurgle Terminators, all converted and lots of open flat area to do somecustom work. I decided to alter the look of the models from the original scheme, as the other scheme would not go fast enough and did not allow for the including of units from other gods. I decided to call this army the "Plague Bringers" as then I could incorporate some custom litany work and cool looking chaos iconography onto the models
So I made a command decision on the other set of Terminators. I would paint them as Khorne Terminators, as that would maximize Close Combat attacks and make them all the better. And by painting the same color scheme, just with red instead of green, I was able to make them look coherent to the erst of the army.
These were all painted and finished off in about 12 hours or so. Having the Oblits almost 75% finished helped a lot.
Sunday got off to a slow start, as we were all wiped out from the day before, ending up in almost everyone in the house, except for me taking a nap. This allowed me to get side tracked and not really paint, but more or less sit around and read a book.
Once I got stuck in, I started working on my first Nurgle Chaos Space Marines. 10 models, standard CSM's except the Icon bearor and the Champion. Sam basic paint composition as the Nurgle Terminators, and these were finished off in another 12 hours.
So during the general painting sessions and the much needed smoke breaks, there was a lot of gaming talk, and lot of tips handed out. I am really proud of both Shane and Adam for the efforts that they put in this weekend.
Overall a great weekend. Lots of cigarettes, coffee, fun and paint got thrown around
