Hawaii Vacation, 2014

2014-09-09 18.27.39

I’m back from Hawaii! Maybe you didn’t know I was gone? Well, I was. D and I spent seven days on the Big Island of Hawaii. What did we do? Some swimming, some snorkeling, some hiking, some running, and a few touristy things. At some point, when I figure out how, I’ll put up all the pictures from the trip. In the meantime here are some highlights. I guess I should put a slow internet connection warning on this post, there are a lot of pictures following this

Old Stuff: Necron Warriors

The nice thing about Necrons is that a very simple paint job can look really good on these guys. I painted my entire army in a couple of days because it took so little to make them look good. These were base coated in chaos black, drybrushed with boltgun metal and then various parts were painted over with scab red.

Warrior HordeNecron’s are technically my second army.  I was still building up an Ultramarine force when I bought the old army box that Games Workshop released when the Necron’s were given a codex in 2002.

These would be tournament worthy If I based them.  I left them black because I didn’t know what I wanted to do and I feel, at this point, that trying to base the figures would require me to clean-up the actual models.  Also, there isn’t any kind of base I want to put on there that wouldn’t require extensive painting and/or modelling.  I don’t want flock grass or even sand/gravel.

Warrior Clos-upI apologize for the photo quality… If you have some tips on taking detailed pictures of tiny things with a simple digital camera, I’d love to hear from you!  I already know I need a stand, but what about diffusers and reflectors?
