Update this week.

Restructured the hell out of my Enclave army. Again. But this time it's for good. (until the next time)

I'll upload a full army list a little later this week, as well as the second tactical squad. I'm waiting on two orders of plasma guns to finish the basic models of my command squads, so if I'm lucky I'll get those this weekend. If not, then they'll have to sit on the metaphorical shelf until I can.

Blah. One of the major problems going from 4th edition to 5th is that my entire troops section is geared towards what was a winning combo in 4th. Troops with close combat weapons, devistators with missile launchers. Now most of my squads either have an extra flamer, or missile launcher (I've decided to move away from devistators for this army) and I have a collection of chainswords to turn into bolters. That's not getting done anytime soon.

Speaking of things not getting done soon; the Enclave poster. My Enclave army is somewhere around 110 models. So far I've drawn about 7 of them.

On top of that, I now have an idea to make another poster after that. Clearly, I have high goals with about a zero possibility of getting done this year.

At least the Enclave army is pretty much done. Oh, sure, I need to still convert a couple of them, finish off the command squads and give an update to all of the tactical squads, but generally, it's done.

Now back to all the crap I have to get done today..

Enclave update

Okay, sorry if these are out of order, but the picture formatting on blogger is very infuriating.

This is the first tactical squad of the Enclave. They were originally designed for 4th edition (with take the fight to them) but I've been slowly converting them to 5th edition rules. Caroll is going to get a missile launcher soon also.

The original concept for my Enclave army was that it was going to be an army of 21 models only. One of each of the 20 founding. These are the first ten founding legion's contributions to the Enclave.

001. Wilson. Dark Angels.
002. Carter. Rainbow Warriors.
003. Paterson. Emperor's Children.
004. Caroll. Iron Warriors.
005. Langdon. White Scars.
006. Adams. Space Wolves.
007. Harding. Imperial Fists.
008. Mercer. Night Lords.
009. Basset. Blood Angels
010. Fitzgerald. Iron Hands.

Sorry if the pictures are a little blurry, the camera doesn't seem to like focusing properly.

Now back to writing the short story..

Holy crap

Work has been kicking my ass for.. a month? Damn.

So, to recap, my Enclave now has two new tanks.

I have an new job. Whee. I don't get paid for overtime, so those extra thirtyish hours? Don't get anything. Lame.

I resorted my Enclave army list so now I should have everything pretty cut and dry for updates. Ideally, if tomorrow isn't too crazy, I should have a proper update with pictures and stuff.

I suppose my new years resolution should be to remember to update this thing more.
