The final batch of models that I finished in 2016 were a mighty squad of beserkers for my legion of preference, the Iron Warriors. This also included an interpretation of Kharn the Betrayer himself. I built these before the heady days of the Traitors Hate book, so i was kind of lucky that at apush the 20 dudes can count as that Murderhorde formation or whatever it is called. Anyway, here are a few picys...
Hey hey. I decided ti get involved in this years #squaduary event. I kind of shadowed last years #dreadtocber and thought that I would make solid bash at this one. But what to do? I'm trying to build up enough Iron Warriors to form one of those warband detachments and I'm still missing a few things from there. So a squad of Iron Warrior Raptors it is then. But anyway, here is a pile of raptor bits that have been recently removed from the sprue...
Thanks for reading and happy #Squaduary to those taking part!
Happy new year all. Onto some reviewing of my 2016. In short pretty good. Started off pretty crappily, with warhammer stuff taking a slide for some other commitments. I got the walking club web site spruced up by early summer, by which time my hobby mojo was returning. By the end of the year I was getting some solid hobby achievements that I am fairly proud of. By the numbers I think I managed to paint 105 figures, which sounds pretty good to me. I made some serious headway with my Iron Warriors which was a major headache from earlier years.
The blogger stats stuff don't seem that great. but here is my top post stuff
Well since I only posted 6 blog things in 2016 it isn't that surprising that the stats are dominated by that post from 2014. I think I linked this one to some discussion on a thread on reddit so i'm not surprised that this is still the most popular post. Something to think about anyway.
Got stuck into my Iron Warriors. Two full squads, some characters and a Helbrute.
Finished my Grysyns. Proper happy with them.
