So all is silent on the painting front...
I'm in a bit of a bind as I'm making preparations to relocate into a new home and area before my apartment lease ends in August. I'm spending my time searching the web for houses and what not, rather practicing the art of the brush.
But within the darkness, there is hope, as Teclis once said.
So big announcement... the Conclaves of the Asur have deliberated and the doors once barred from all non-aelven kind have been allowed entry. But for who!?
Rumors abound about delegations of Necron Emissaries sent from the Silent King...
That is correct. I am doing Necrons
. The decision is set in stone, as I'm splitting two of the upcoming 9th edition starter boxes with some friends. I'm in love with what I've seen so far of the new range, and I know we haven't seen everything just yet!
On the other hand... really hoping that the Lumineth Realm-Lords Starter Box will come onto pre-order at the end of this week. Because of Necrons and me wanting to get my Idoneth to a good standard army-wide soon... I feel like the Lumineth will take a slight step back on the army collection phase. Even the collecting of the Necrons will be a bit slow after the starter set extravaganza lol.
This is because I'm relocating to a new home. Thankfully, I'm splitting it three way with a relative and a trusted friend. So my current bills are about to take a serious cut once the transition is official. But I'm also trying to novel up and running, which is also going to be a bit of money.
I guess its true that once you get older, it's bills, bills, bills lol. I'll fare alright though
, just going to take it slow and not throw my wallet at anything too crazy like.
Also, let's talk about paint.
I ordered the complete wash collection from Secret Weapon Miniatures back toward the end of April, and am still waiting on all of that. Which is okay because -covid.
I've kept an eye on the vallejo mecha color range and have wanted a complete set for a little while now. I cannot confirm, but I have an unidentified order coming in on Monday for my B-Day that might be it. Here's hoping! I would be using this range in depth for Necrons.
Also, Scale 75 has come out with an interesting competitor to GW's contrast paint. It looks way better than contrast, honestly, with more vibrant colors and many different shades of primer. I think it could help me speed up the painting on my Lumineth!
