I see dark angels and space wolves! My 2 favourite chapters. What is with that techpriest and where did he come from?
I want to get back to 40K but Iím overwhelmed at how much I would need to invest.   I love the 40K vibe more than fantasy or AoS.

Ha, I know the feeling! That tech priest is last years special White Dwarf model. You know how every year or so they make a special White Dwarf in a costume or something? Last year was Ad Mech White Dwarf and he came with a little servitor Goblin buddy.

Good job.
I'v mostly been sticking with 40k projects lately as most [if not all] of the FB kits I used to collect have either been discontinued or placed on the digital market.

A special milestone update tonight actually. I spent New Years Eve finishing some stuff on my workbench, including some special models for the future. Lets start off with the regular things.

Poxwalkers! The zombies are coming!



And a grab bag mix of some Deathwatch agents! From a variety of units, I have a habit of just painting up/buying random models then slotting them into existing squads. BUT then writing extensive fluff behind the agents/squads/companies/watch stations/etc.



And now we get to the special project. For the better part of a year I've been building a squad of death watch based on my home town friend group. Originally planned as a christmas gift, I'm instead holding off to get a full set of stuff with a little booklet of fluff, and then give them out at a planned reunion meet up sometime in the future. A deathwatch marine for all the lads and the ladies (Most of whom are very clear in their dislike for marines) are a mix of custom psykers and Inquisitors. But December 31st marked the completion of all 9 of the marines! Now I just need to finish painting the ladies and they'll be set!

You lot better not be reading here!







Shotgun dude on the left was suppose to have the Star Wars Empire sigil on his shoulder pad, but I'm terrible at free hand! Right side shield man has a very wet look shoulder that might eventually have a totally-not-world-eaters sigil.





A group shot of the final 5 painted.


And a group shot of the whole nine!





And thats a wrap for 2020!
