First off, there's the Invitational to plan for. I definitely feel some pressure to up my game, with my goal being to make it out of the first round of this single elimination event against some super tough lists. To this end, I'm not bringing the Tyranids for this event, but going to try out a variation of a Necron MSU list with some fluff abomination Eldar Formation shenanigans.
|This army needs a competitive face-lift|
Part of me is tempted to take the more powerful list for the GT itself and just shelve the bugs this year, but I still have my resolution to improve my painting score, and my Necrons just won't cut it, not to mention I'll be borrowing some of the Canoptek Harvests and Warp Spiders I need.
|Love the mini, but he is eating a lot of points in my list (which is a good and bad thing)|
With the Invitational and then my GT list, my To Do list looks like this:
- Must Paint:
- 5 Lictors - 2 partially painted, 3 partially assembled
- Mawloc - 90% assembled
- 3 Mucolids - partially painted,
- 3 Ripper bases - partially painted
- 6 Wraiths - 3 assembled
- 1-2 Spyders - partially assembled
- 3 Tomb Blades
- 10 Warp Spiders
- Stretch Goals
- Flyrant Touch-ups
- Army-wide touchups
- Touchups/niddification of Bastion
- New/Updated Display Board (Tyranids)
- 3 Mucolids - primed/partially painted
- 7+ Spore Mines - primed
That's honestly a pretty intimidating list. I'm planning on having a hobby weekend in two weeks with Ron and Chandler and cranking out as much as I can in that time. To that end, the bits and pieces of time I get between now and then will be mostly devoted to assembling models so they're ready to go. Namely, I need to assemble the Tomb Blades and Wraiths, and make sure the Mawloc is ready to go on his dynamic entry base (more on that to come).
Wish me luck, and hopefully I'll have some hobby progress posts for everyone soon.
