The Journeyman League is still in full swing and the Nova Open is happening in a week, plus I have a race this Saturday, so sorry I’ve been lax with the updates and pics.
I have Harbinger, a full unit of Vengers, Gravus, eKreoss, 10 Errants + UA, and a unit of Knights Exemplar on the table currently. Yeesh. By my schedule, starting tomorrow I have about 6 days to work on it all. So yeah, that isn’t happening. I am hoping to get the Errants and Harbinger at least done by the Open which seems more do able if I can knock out 2 Errants a day. After the open, there’ll be one more week of the Journeyman, so I really want to get the Vengers done and on the game table by then as that would be 15 hobby points for me, a pretty sizable chunk that might push me over the edge for second place…Yes, I’m playing for second place. We have a player that has already painted more Skorne than the amount of Menoth I own. I think his Hobby score is equal to the next person’s total score.
In the mean time, I did manage to finish the old man himself, Grand Scrutator Severius. He’s more of a spell slinger than I usually play, but I welcome the change in pace. Plus Ashes to Ashes and Eye of Menoth are awesome spells. I never thought I would see the day that MAT7 missed some much until I started playing Menoth. When I was playing Khador, MAT7 was like ‘elite’, the stuff of Characters. When I was looking at my Menoth cards, I was like “wait a minute…the normal troopers are MAT7!? BROKEN!!1!” MAT8 Exemplar is going to be gravy however. Plus 8 Focus seems like a lot, so it might feel like how I felt when I played my first FOC7 caster from FOC6 and felt like I had focus to burn for days. He’ll be going on the table tonight for sure, along with a lot of other stuff I’ve painted but haven’t played yet.
