As some of you know, I've decided to slow down a bit, stop buying minis, and get back to painting. Last week I finished up the first 15pt list that I had and got to celebrate with a great game against Jay. I loss the game but it was very enjoyable and I learned a lot.
So next up for me is deciding what to paint next. I had thought about either the Winterguard or the Assassins as I field them the most but a part of me wants to follow the path I took in the beginning-- so next would be the Kodiak.
To make the Kodiak, I bought a heavy Warjack kit and cut one of the axe hands to make another open fist. He's still unfinished and I still have a lot of conversion work to do. I have to finish his second hand (I'm making them open fists with fingers out) and work on his heavy boiler. The idea I have is to cut the top of his chassis to create a sort of hot rod look with the engine sticking out from the top. After I finish that I have to add all the details to make him look like a Kodiak. It's going to take a little while to complete all of that.
Once the Kodiak is done I'll convert and paint up a unit of Mechaniks and my 25pt list will be complete!
The one thing that I'm excited about is finishing the units that I had when I first started and playing with them again. I hardly use the Marauder or Kodiak and these days it seems like I field the Mechaniks less and less. By going back to those units, I hope to really learn what they can and cannot do and see what their full potential is.
