I must regretfully report that I terribly mismanaged my time and was unable to complete my task of five Eldar Guardians with a heavy weapons platform. Things started off quite well, but as exams approached and assignments piled up I was unable to finish painting what I set out to do. Though I will say that so far I feel like this batch is going better than the last and I am getting better at getting yellows to paint evenly. Now the bad news is that I will have to take a week off from my paint goals even though I am only three weeks in, as finals take full priority and have to focus on those. The nice thing is because of how my final exams are positioned I only have to deal with them in one REALLY annoying small stretch, so after that I will be able to get that which I started done and pending how things are going start some other painting too.
What I also wanted to do was give my two cents on the new Warhammer logo.
I kind of like how the logo looks, and it supposedly is a mix of the Stormcast Eternals Hammer with the Imperial Aquila. I can definitely see that in here, though the part that somewhat saddens me is the fact is it feels like the Age of Sigmar inspired part of it is the majority over the 40K portion of it, weird complaint I know. Maybe that is just because I feel like Age of Sigmar was a slap in the face to most Warhammer Fantasy fans, and just instituted the weird Sigmarines that don’t make all that much sense to me personally. Warriors who were supposedly the best heroes plucked away from their demise at the last second to serve as these great heroes infused with Sigmar’s power, but none of them are the named characters from Warhammer Fantasy who more than earned that or anyone you actually know so yeah…. But that aside I like the new logo and think it does a good job, I mean it is a war hammer after all.
We are also seeing the majority of the new Heretic Astartes releases coming out which is really nice. I really want to get my hands on a Master of Executions because I feel like it could make for a cool conversion, and I find myself leaning to doing the Shadowspear CSM as World Eaters. Because I really think Chaos Space Marines should be up close and in your face shouting things at you about the dark gods as they chop you to bits. Anyway just wanted to give that quick little update for now, and will have more in the very near future!
