So I've returned home from another long week of travel and I did manage to finish up the min Fennblades over the weekend.

It has been slow going on these guys but the results are pretty nice and it isn't like I'm in a huge rush to get them done I suppose.  I'm not sure when I'll feel ready to pull these out at a tournament type event.

It does feel like forever since I've made a tournament of any sort.  It is just life right now be crazy, but hopefully soon I'll be able to get out a bit and get some gaming done.

I also picked up the Space Marine game that launched right as I left for my trip.  It was a fun play though it was a bit short (8 hours) for my taste.  I think they captured the world of 40k and many of the intricacies very well.  The story was nice if not a bit predictable.  I will say hacking apart hordes or orks was both satisfying and eventually tiring, but I think that also oddly fits well with the feeling that an ork invasion would be like!  Like I said it was a fun play (despite having to be an Ultramarine) and I hope they can put out some more of these games now that the mechanics of it are in place.  It would be great to play as other chapters and have some great stories played out in this format!

Sorry that picture is a bit fuzzy, I snapped these on the way out the door this morning.

A good clip of work done on the min Fennblades unit.  I knew I wanted to at least get all the washes done this weekend, but I actually got into some of the highlighting and blending as well.

I need to do some more work highlighting the armor, working on the gold, highlight the leathers, attempt to add some highlights to the tartan stripes, and get details like teeth, claws and rope.

I might get some time tonight, but I doubt I'll finish before leaving again for travel for work.
