Road to NOVA: Drowning in Kroot

My opponent backed out due to over sleeping until 1:45 in the afternoon.  I guess people have lives.  It's not like he missed a tournament that he was talking shit about to mow his lawn.  It's also not like he wasn't complaining the day before that Tau were OP.  I am just picking on him.  All good, Thom!  :)

What did I do with my extra time besides get dragged to the mall (Screw you, Thom!)?  I put together a new hobby caddy and painted.  I am at the stage where I need to touch up a few pieces on the suites, build a new TL fusion blaster (lost the other) and finish the Ethereal.  I also have a large amount of Kroot to paint.  I think I have about 30 to 40 painted or mostly painted. That leaves me with about 30 to do.  I am going to take a better head count in a few but I am actually surprised.  After saying no battle damage, it looks like I will be able to add some additional flare to my guys. 

Trying to think about what I am going to do with the display board.  I may just use my other board.

Going to try to arrange two games for Wednesday to work out the new list. Not much room for changing this list but need to make sure I understand it a 100%.  A lot of work left but all is coming together.


  1. I'm loving the commander. Good luck on getting those last Kroot done.

    1. Thanks. Really happy with the Commander. Too bad he will be demoted for NOVA to a normal suite. :)

      I prepared this prior to actually looking at my Kroot. I was getting my models packed to take them to the store tomorrow and the number of primer only kroot is very small. I have about 25 that are done. I have about 5 that need some parts added and to be primed. Another 5 or so that need to be painted. The rest need some washes and parts of them painted (guns, hair/feathers and leather). I actually think I can get them done by next week at this pace. The bases will need to have some texture added but I am not too worried about that.
