And here's what happened after I stuck in some ear buds and cranked the music.
Overall, I'm pretty pleased and it was fun to just knock out a mini in one sitting.
I have to admit to a slight pc gaming addiction. The latest time sink has been an older game - Tropico 4. City building, but you play the part of a Caribbean dictator. I've also been doing some inventory and reorganizing in the hobby room in preparation for some serious house overhauls/reorganizing while my teacher wife is off for the summer. In the process, I figured out that I have a ridiculous number of miniatures yet to be built.. not to mention all of the sprues I have laying around from WH Fantasy stuff I either got for conversions of for my very brief flirtation with the game probably 8-10 years ago.
With that, I have plenty of minis to make a couple new armies, especially with all the Mechanicus goodness and new Marine codex. SO, I present to you.... El Presidente aka El Chupacabra.
He's going to double as a normal Company commander or Creed, if I feel like using the extra points. But in normal form he has some wargear that will be represented by something rather creepy on another base. ;) More on that next time. Typical of all my loyalist armies, these guys will be a bit tongue-in-cheek and there will be some cheeky narratives to go along with them. But, don't worry.... I haven't forgot about my traitor guard either. Their infantry (and finishing up the tanks) will be my next project after the ETL4 stuff is done. The Dogs of Khorne and the rest of Not-So-Smilin' Bob are next on the painting table.
