Stone Scribes Painted

So life has been quite busy as of late.  I've spent almost two weeks on the road so that has left very little time for... well anything.

I did manage to finish up my Stone Scribes before leaving for my work trip last week.

They fit in nicely with the Krielstone Bearer, and now I just need to finish up the Stone Scribe Elder hopefully this week.  That should pretty much keep me on pace for finishing 35 points by year end.

Last weekend I got a ton of games in for Warmachine/Hordes as we had basically 2 days of 'they boys' all hanging out to play games.  We played 3 40 k games, but I probably got about 10 games with my Trolls.

I think I only played 1 25 point game with Gunny, and probably 3-4 35 point games with Gunny also.  The rest were 15 point games which I just decided to run Borka.

I likey Borka.

Of course this kind of makes me question my painting progress.  I'd like to get this 35 points done, but at the same time that pretty much leaves Borka off the painting table until the new year.  I'm now questioning if I instead wrap up the Chronicoler since that would be 25 pts for Gunny, then move on to a Borka based list.

Not that it matters for much as there is nothing I'm shooting to really be done by or for, which is kind of depressing in and of itself.

Oh well, I'll just keep painting and see what shakes.

Kreilstone Bearer Painted, What's Left?

So another week and I've got one guy to show for it.  I decided to do the Kreilstone Bearer since I had still had him in pieces since I figured it would be easier to paint with the stone off the trollblood.

More crappy photography.

I was a little lazy with the green glow on the the stones but with so many runes I wanted to do something quick.  In the end it isn't bad, not as great as blending but, meh, I wasn't going to blend every rune.

So what do I have left now?  Well to get my Gunnbjoun list to 35 I have exactly 13 guys left.  Oddly there are exactly 13 weeks of the year left.  So in a very low benchmark I should be aiming for a guy a week.  Now the wrench is I travel for 3 of those weeks, but maybe I can make it up with some holiday time or by getting a couple grunts done in one week.

First up I need to get through the rest of the Krielstone squad.  That's my first task.

The I'll probably move on to the Stone Scribe Eldar as that puts my 25 point list to bed.  Once done with that I'll have two solos left to get to 35 (the Chronicolor and the Fell Caller) but I might save these to mix in with...

The remaining Fellblades and the UA.  This I'm really not looking forward to as I've already knocked 6 down and another 4 don't sound fun.  At least by mixing in the UA and the other solos hopefully getting the last 13 guys done to get to 35 by the New Year will be a manageable feat.
