Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

Well the Sons of Sek got finished right under the wire. The GT was a blast and I'll have full coverage by this weekend.

Sons of Sek - 1st Platoon Specialists


1st Platoon (4 infantry squads and 1 command squad) are almost finished altogether. Last Friday I finished the Vox Operators, Weapons Specialists and squad Sergeants.

Late last night I finished another 9 lasgunners, and I'm working on 9 more today. Once they're done, all of 1st Platoon's infantry squads will be done.

I took 500 points with me to Hat's Games this last Saturday for "Learn to Play 5th." I got in 5 games against three CSM's, Eldar, and Tau. I very handily won the 4 non-annihilation games. The one annihilation game I played was against a Thousand sons army with two KP's against my 7 KP's. I would have wiped him off the board, but as soon as he got the 3rd kill point, it was moot. Oh well.

Ok, back to work. I can feel a "wall" coming up. I've got to power through!

I like the contrast on the plasma gunners.

Congrats on the wins.

Once again, great stuff.

Always good to see an update for the SoS, especially one with so much meat. Everything is looking rock solid, this is going to be one helluva army when you get it done. Impressive schedule graphic too!

Thanks all. I'm feeling good about the schedule. I'm actually trying to get the bulk of it done before I go back to classes on the 25th. Thankfully I have the time needed to put in.

When I finish the last 3 guys from the command squad later today, I'm going to pull out all of 1st platoon to see them together fully painted for the first time as a reward to myself. Pics will follow.

Boss- Glad you like the graphic. I'm a very visual person and I wanted something to help me track my progress over the next couple of weeks. It's pretty red and will be getting more so!

Rob- They're the heads from the old Chaos Space Marine Mutation Sprue. They have long horns, I shave them down a bit.

Glad you like my stuff! Help yourself to the ideas, that's why I put them up here. I'd love to see what you do.

Those look great! One thing though-- if you can kill the entire enemy army, you win no matter what. Therefore, you don't necessarily need to give up hope if it comes down to KPs...
