Into the final push for September. The last two weeks have been slower than anticipated due to work and class taking up more time than expected. I finished the two squads of Pink Horrors, but it wasn’t enough to justify their own post when the only thing I changed from the original was the tongue colors. Those were a mental endurance trial, but I’m hoping that will help me prepare for October and November when I have 20 Tzaangor and 20 Kairic Acolytes on the docket. The Tzaangor will pull double duty in AoS and 40K, and form the base for my Disciples of Tzeentch mortal lists.
My folding table and doublesided mat from gamemat.eu came in since the last update and I’m happy with how close my bases are to it. The only complaint I have with the table is the that it isn’t a completely flat surface so you can see the ridges under the mat, but for saving space you can’t beat it.
Lord of Change
No real updates on the Lord of Change this week. I did get it’s base printed and was happy to find out the model fits perfectly. I don’t have much experience with 3D printed models, but I’m going to pin the Lord to it and hopefully don’t run into any issues.
I’ve finished the base so far, but I haven’t been able to seal it yet because of the weather. I’m using the Citadel Color app Rubric Marine paint scheme as the basis for my Thousand Sons. I’m already not excited about painting the army given how thin Thousand Suns Blue and Averland Sunset go down, but such is life sometimes.

I’m going to have to buckle down this week if I am going to complete all my goals. I don’t expect the Infernal Master to take long, but the thin base paints aren’t doing me any favors. Five days left, let’s do this…
