Goatboy here again and instead of chatting about some kind of competitive nonsense I want to go over the actual stuff I really enjoy – building/converting/painting these models.
In fact this is what keeps me involved in GW games. The game aspect is a bonus on what is really an exercise in creativity for me. If I wasn’t able to create models then I probably would have moved on to doing the post apocalyptic comic that is always floating around in my head.
That’s why I want to go over some of the hobby ideas that might actually get done. Some are for commissions/army builds and others are just me cleaning up my hobby space and finding models that deserve some abuse/creativity. The first thing I want to go over is the finishing of my 3rd Evil knight – the Nurgle one. I might still put more work into it – but I had to get it done for a buddy to borrow for Nova.
And of course my greatest conversion will be my own little Chaos Spawn coming this October. I am so excited to see how this little squirming doom machine will finally look like. I can just imagine him giving me the stink eye as he knows he will have all the nerdy things I always wanted growing up. Plus I get to be a lego junkie again!
What crazy new conversions are you thinking about for the next few months? My event calendar is extremely lessened with the newborn boy so I don’t expect to get any events until next years Las Vegas Open. Next week I want to talk about some of the good lists we saw this weekend at the Nova Open. I also want to look at what might happen if we let people build true 7th edition lists.
I hope everything has a great Labor Day and either you have a nice day doing nothing or at least get paid a lot of Holiday Pay as you work a nice and easy day.
Let’s hear about your latest conversion – pics if you got em!
