The story behind the pictures...
I am lazy and I enjoy procrastinating so I've been playing with non-primed,armless nercons. I have a table in my apartment so it's never really been an issue. But there was a Damnos(sp?) event at the GW and I figured I'd join in, I had a week I could TOTALLY get them painted and based after all I did have one done so I had my theme. Despite the fact that I'd only ever painted 5 models and the fact the I've never played in public, I signed up(Monday, event is Saturday at 11:30).
I had my plan
Monday-Turn a talos, a warrior, a destroyer and some epoxy into a Lord/Finish building the 'lith
Tuesday-Build everything else.
Wednesday-make bases and spray-prime everything.
Thursday-Make everything purple that should be purple
Friday-Paint the non-purple things gold/green
-put in the rods
-Highlight if time permitsTime did not permit
What actually happend:
Monday-Started my very first conversion(lord) and the 'lith.
-Got all of the warrior arms ready
"On time, oh yeah!"
Tuesday- Woke up early for work;did the destroyer bases and built the wraiths
-After work built everything AND cut all of the "bricks"
"Ahead of schedule, oh yeah!"
Wednesday- Too cold to spray prime, roommate doesn't want cancer so I can't do it inside.
-Glued bricks to bases
"Will I get it done? oh ...yeah."
Thurdsay- Too cold to spray prime
"Oh yeah... I live in Manitoba"
Friday-Work late, get home at 7:00pm
-Convinced roommate that it won't be that bad.
-8:00pm-Spray-primed and started painting
-Knocked over the wraiths and had to rebuild them
-All of the warriors
-General hijinyx that proved I needed sleep(including breaking the wraiths)
Spill paint everywhere
-Realised that the paint that I needed was now everywhere except for on the Destroyers
-Realised that I had forgotten about the wraiths
-10am-show up at GW for opening to buy paint.
-11:30 watch as one of the IG plays get replaced as he "Didn't have time to paint"
-Convince the GW worker that the spray-primed black was part of my theme
-5:00pm win the Damnos Mission despite being short 2 Necron Players (bass voice "Oh.... yeah...!")
Once they get painted properly I'll update the photos/have close ups.
