Happy Wednesday Everyone! I hope your hobby is going strong as we enter the final stages of summer. If you are going to Nova Open there are only 22 days left to finish up your army or projects! Here is what has been going on with my Hobby and Nova prep this past week.
My Club, Ligonier Legion, recently moved venues due to some renovation at our local Library where we normally met. Our new gaming hall is the basement of a local Church which has plenty of table space, storage for our terrain and gives us a bit more freedom for our events in the future. The atmosphere is positive for the switch with the only down sides is a bit farther walk to our FLGS.
We broke in the new hall with games of Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40k. My good friend Aleks was happy enough to help me test a potential list for Nova. I built my Stormcast very defensively to survive potential shooting heavy armies. He brought out his Free Peoples with plenty of shooting. I started with a good lead, but he clawed back to draw the scenario and get a minor win on Kill Points. It was a great game but forced me to reevaluate my list once more.
Warhammer 40k 8th edition has really sparked my local club and they came out to play in order to prepare for our upcoming Fate of Konor Event at the end of the month.
My Blade of Khorne are really beginning to take shape and I knocked out a few heroes to lead my force for some small point games as I paint the remainder in the coming month or two. I still plant o finish the army before Nova, but the life is a thing that can get in the way, but you can be sure I will be ready for Aelves when they release!
Currently, I am painting my unit of 30 Blood Reavers and I played with Skin shades a bit and below you can see the four variations I am using across the entire army. Left to right the mixes are One layer of Reikland Flesh, One layer of Reikland Flesh plus a layer of Seraphim Sepia, Two layers of Reikland Flesh, And a mixture of Gorthor brown, Druchii Violet, and Nuln Oil.
Also, I have set up a WhatsApp chat group for Aleves and if you have an interest in joining please get in contact with me and I can get you into the group.
Let me know what Hobby you have going on as I would love to see. If you are going to Nova Open please feel free to hit me up and perhaps we can meet up to chat or at least say hi! Until Friday, Happy Hobbying!
