Space Sharks: Bikers WIP

I've repaired second-hand bikers before, but never really built any space marine bikes from scratch before.  I think that they've updated the kit at some point in the past 20 years or so, as I think I remember a few extra fiddly bits in the older versions.  These though went together very nicely.  A simple but pretty well-designed kit.

What I Like About You (if you were my army)

I was musing today about what it is that I like about various armies, why I pick certain armies and avoid others.  Here's the result of my introspection.

Space Sharks - Assault Marines and revision

Here's the rest of the Space Sharks assault squad.  To refresh your memory, the first three can be found...well shucks, from a quick look through old posts I guess I forgot to post some of the earlier ones!  I did post the first one here back in July (egad, has it really been that long?), but apparently forgot the others.  I'll rectify that below.

Project List update

 I laid out my hobby plans for the foreseeable future back in December.  I've made some progress since then, so here's an update.
  • Space Sharks! - some progress has been made, more to come!
  • Two armored sentinels for the Merkans.
  • Manticore for either Merkans or Scythiak.  Maybe I'll even be ambitious and magnetize some iconography panels so it can either be Imperial or recently captured.
  • 2-3 Chimeras for Merkans.
  • Multiple counts-as Chimeras for the Scythiak.
  • Blob platoon for Scythiak using spare Steel Legion figures.
  • Finish painting second rough rider squad for Scythiak.
  • Killer Kans and Dreadnought for Orks.
  • Burnas, Tankbustas, Lootas for Orks, plus potentially extra looted/battle wagons.
  • Eldar Corsairs - more figures have been obtained, but actual work is probably quite some time away.
  • New and refurbished Chaos Marines for the Endless Ones and associated forces like Sons of Taurus, Tears of Sanguinius, Abbysal Reavers and Heralds of Oblivion.  Probably at least enough to fill out a full FOC.
  • Cheap terminator Deathwing. - DONE!  Completed as part of the Space Sharks, the Deathfin army is complete, at least for now!
  • Zulus for Mogambian army in RPG campaign.
  • Misc Reaper, etc. RPG figs.
  • Ork barricades. Done!
  • Redo city table.
  • Other terrain. Battlescape done, more plans made.
  • Fantasy Warriors of Chaos.
I'm going to try to keep slogging through the Space Sharks and get them done, after which I expect to knock out some smaller side projects before diving back into power armor with Chaos Marines.  I hope to get some time in with my airbrush and get the Sentinels and Ork walkers done as part of the interlude.

Revised Lists

by Peter Thorpe

As some may have already noticed, I've revised the blog rolls on the right side.  The main Outer Reaches roll with close to 500 sites was getting pretty cumbersome to update.

It has been split up into a number of different sections alphabetically now (those starting with numbers or symbols are first, those starting with "the" are alpha by "the", and there are quite a few of those!), smaller and easier to maintain, at least until the next time they get bloated again.

So if you look at the rolls, keep scrolling down.  The old way had the most recent 25, the new setup has the most recent 10 from each of six lists, so even more recent stuff should be visible.  Go check some out!

Space Sharks extra tactical marines

Rounding out the first tactical squad for the Space Sharks, here's the extra bolter carriers, with their various stabby/choppy bits.

Man the Barricades!

This weekend I got some work done on a couple of terrain projects, finishing up my long-neglected Ork barricades and my recently-acquired "Battlescape", both from GW.
