All FAQ'ed Up!

Man, first it was the much needed Jeremy Vetock FAQ for his wonderful job on the Skaven rulebook (being sarcastic here). Then there was the FAQ to update all the armies for 8th edition. Now, there's FAQ for the 8th edition rulebook!!! Talk about FAQ overload. FAQ! FAQ! FAQ!

I had other titles...
"Oh, FAQ me another FAQ?!"
"FAQ you and your Erratas!"
"Un-FAQ'in believable!"

ok I got one more...

"Meet the FAQ'ers"

I guess I caved. I'll have to set aside some time over the weekend and peruse this impulse buy and see if it was worth it. First quick impressions: although nice and shiny, my college text books were also nice and shiny and just as expensive. Will I need to take a lecture class along with this? Should a hobby ever need a book this big?!

Skaven Update #17

Well things are going pretty smoothly with my Single Character entry. I'm done with the base somewhat and most of the mini has paint on it- certain areas more finished than others. I don't want to jinx myself but I think it's coming along rather nicely!

Onto other things...

These guys have been pretty much done for awhile, I just didn't have the time to take pics and post them. So here they are! The newer PCB mini kind of stands out from the unit as I only have 1 (side note: came from a bits bag I bought from a local auction). I guess I can count him as a champion for now. In the future I plan to pick up more of the newer PCBs and eventually convert a champion out of the plague monk box. Well that's the plan anyway. In any case, I hope you like them!

Change of Plans

Well I was planning on making a Skaven War litter conversion for Underempire's upcoming Single Character Painting Competition but as I started the project I was not liking how it was coming together. Plus I started getting other ideas in my head and began to second guess the entire project. I guess I didn't think it through well enough. Oh well, I'll have to wait on this until I'm happy with one good idea.

Good news is I've replaced it with another project. Fortunately, this time around there weren't any converting involved. Thanks to no converting I've started painting it already. Yay! Now let's hope I don't procrastinate and end up not finishing on time!
