After a month in the field with the Army, I'm finally back in the land of the... uh... showered. Now that all my field time is over, I have a ton of free time to devote to the hobby again.
Before I left, I was working on my third and final tactical squad for my Ultramarines 2nd company. Now that I'm back, I'm working on the last few steps before I can get this squad on the table. Painting tactical squads have become pretty tedious. For the most part, I’m just painting marines with boltguns followed by marines with boltguns. Needless to say, I’ll be really happy when this particular squad is finished, marking the completion of this squad as one of the most important steps in the building of this army.
|All that's left is backpacks and bases.|
Hopefully, I’ll have this squad complete within the week. After that, I have a 5-man Devastator squad to do. That shouldn’t take too terribly long. Once the Devastator squad is sealed, the Ultramarines will be ready to play at 1,000 points. Somewhere in the middle of painting all this blue, I’m planning on putting up a tutorial or two. Stay tuned for more from The 40k Hobbiest!
