September Hobby Goals Update

September is coming along nicely. This week I was able to finish my second Chaos Spawn, assemble my Lord of Change, and prime the Infernal Master. I’ve painted a few small details on my Pink Horrors, but nothing I’d consider update worthy.

Hobby Progress

Horrors

I painted a few more details this week, but they weren’t really my focus. I’m going to lean into them more this week and try to get them finished by the weekend. I told myself that if I get them finished, I’ll reward myself with the Lord of Change next week.

Lord of Change

I spent some time this week cleaning and trimming the Lord of Change bits and dry fitting them to get an idea of where everything goes. Mierce models don’t normally come with instructions so it really comes down to finding some good reference pics online.

The assembly wasn’t too bad, but I’m going to have to go back through with some putty or green stuff to fill in some gaps before I prime him. I’d estimate there’s about an hour worth of gap filling, but at least everything is easy to get to. My resin should be in this week so I can start printing the stylized base.

Next to a Tzaangor for scale.

It should be noted that he comes with a staff as well, but I had it sitting in hot water when I took these pics. The staff is pretty long and had warped a little at some point. Nothing too major.

I’m really happy with how the Chaos Spawn came out, and its basically the test model for my Lord of Change.

Infernal Master

Nothing fancy here, just primed him tonight so I could update my tracker. Progress is progress….

Additionally, my Daemon Prince and Flamers arrived, and the Blue Scribes should hopefully be in this week. They’ll sit on the shelf and be in the queue for October along with the Thousand Sons. At some point I need to start reading the new Codex and determine what kind of army I want to build, but I think I have enough models on hand for a solid core.
