In the past week I’ve been finishing up painting some units and getting them written up. I also had a look into getting a second HQ choice for my army, this time something beefier than the Dark Apostle.
Not being a huge fan of the Daemon Prince or the Master of Possession models, I had a look elsewhere and read into building a Chaos Lord. While I’m not so keen on fielding Terminator Squads, I do like the Terminator Lord a lot. The kit is reasonably old but still holds up, and is filled with some tasty leftover Chaos gubbins to share amongst the troops. I added extras from my bitz box to jazz him up, make him more of a Word Bearer. As it stands, I’m going to paint the Lord and his cape separately, so I’ll hold off on any pictures of the actual model just now!
In recent weeks, my wife has been Marie Kondo-ing our house; basically staring each piece of clothing, accessory, book and electronic in the face and deciding whether or not it’s being kept, thrown away or donated. I too thought I would be helpful and volunteered to do the same to my model cabinet (she didn’t see the funny side).
Towards the bottom of the cabinet a group of Primaris appeared and that was when I recalled I had grabbed a few from eBay sometime in 2019 and never got around to working on them. I have been eager to paint some Relictors again, and so started to add bits and pieces. There was also a Lieutenant on a sprue, and I found a suitably arrogant head for him, befitting of the Relictors. He’s now the Sergeant of this little posse.
It would be good to get them all primed this week (weather dependent), but we’ll see how things go. I have a few ideas I would like to try regarding the Relictors’ armour that I didn’t try the first time around.
That’s it until next time. I hope you’re all well and staying safe.
