Road to NOVA: Hobby Update

With 45 days left to get ready for NOVA, things are slowly progressing.  I set aside this weekend to get the remaining Riptide done. That didn't happen.  My Friday and Saturday were taken up by in-laws but I managed to get a surprising amount of work done.

The door on the right I started to paint by hand but then I thought, "Ain't nobody got time fo that!"  I started to tape off the white sections with Tamaya tape and prepared the airbrush

Much better.  Turned out good for a first try.

I did the same thing with the two Skyrays.  A little over spray and a bothed repair means I will need to fix and issue tonight but I am very happy with the results.  Luckily, I need to use my repair colors on other parts of the same model.

Lastly, I started a little work on the Ethereal.

Just started dropping the base colors on him.  Robes will be white and red but it is coming along.

I am going to try to get a game with my new list this week and might beg the wife to let me out this weekend for one.  Progress!

  1. Looking good! All these posts about NOVA are making me want to go. I hadn't planned on it but I'm definitely getting tempted.

    1. I have to say that it has something for everyone. I went last year and was hooked. Some of the armies are just plain awesome. Nice spending a weekend with people that enjoy the hobby as much as you do is win. If your local, you should really think about at least showing up.

    2. I have family local, so I'd have a place to stay; I'm about a 4 hour drive away. I really like the idea of the Trios tournament, but my regular gaming buddies wouldn't be able to make it this year. Not to mention vacation days can be hard to come by. That said, I've definitely been throwing together some lists for the GT...
