It's the necro-blog....

Hi...remember me?

Well, the last year has been interesting to say the least. To make a long, boring story short, in January of last year we learned the house we were renting at the time was going to be put up for sale. The church that owned the property needed funds for an expansion project. After months of house hunting, we finally were able to work out a deal with the church for the house, and closed on it the first week of October. That's 8 months of hell I do not wish on anyone!

That settled, I started developing a bit of the painting bug. I'd not lifted a paint brush in months, and my hobby room was in a sad way. The extra room I have my stuff in doubles as storage for the house, and it ended up being a dumping ground for all the extra crap we had started packing we believed we were going to be moving back in march. Spent a couple days cleaning and organizing..(my OCD wife thought this was the best thing since sliced bread)..and with a lil work...

Very happy with the "de-cluttered" table.....(it was that bad...)..

That done, I started looking for something to start working on. Dark Eldar have looked interesting to me for a while now, so I grabbed some minis...

I tried several different schemes before settling on this brownish look....very happy with the results so far...we'll see how it goes with the rest of the stuff I've picked up.

I've also hauled out some of my old deathguard minis...

This is "Big Ugly". Love the model, but after looking it over, the paint scheme was a lil dated. I reworked the metal on him, as well as the flesh tones. Much pleased with the end result.

So, that's it for the first post back after a year. Lil rambling I know, and I'm sure this post will read like a middle schooler wrote it. Just bare with me till I knock the rust off. As for what the future holds, the 13th are still packed and waiting on me to develop a desire to work on them again. I've got 3 or 4 chimeras waiting to be assembled, and a third leman russ needing who knows......
