End of Sep. Mordians progress

Small Mordian picture dump. More to follow here.

Update. In the few days that have past I have been working out my painters block as well as painting. 
I will soon have my mind recharged and the last few Necrons will be done this week.
It came on just after my last conversation with my client.
But some times I need to just stop what I am doing before I make a mess or brake something. I don't know how to translate that to painting but some times a brake does me good. 
This guy. This one and all the others just like him gave me a little trouble.
You see I painted the Jackets before the flesh. This will create a lot of clean up work.
This one however, has a very small area on the other side of his face and little fact to see over all. I really feel like more flesh color got on his jacket then should have.  Clean up will be some work.

Some fun pictures.

So what's left to do?
Bases need paint. weapons need paint. uniform trim needs paint. wash over the flesh tones. small detail work here and their.
Ah, and I am down to about 20 something mini's left to build and paint.
And That's it. well aside from ordering a better officer core. I have found the miniatures that I will be using and with some luck I will have them this year. 

As far as this project goes though I have hit it hard enough over the last few days to feel confident I can have my Guard all done by the time the new Codex is released. 
The best part is that I am actually going to have a painted army again! 

Now back to work for me. I think I have a pile of angry robots in the next room. 
More Necron Pictures and progress updated soon.

This is the third and I hope last addition to this post.

The rest of the year.

I find myself planning out the rest of the year. With the first wave of Project Necron coming to a close I have just a few things to wrap up around the shop. Project Templars will also be closed and shipped of we hope.
Leaving some free time to work on my own mini's for a while. I have a Nid project that needs some work and now a Tau project which is thankfully small. My plan is just to take my time on both of those and sell them next year. The Studio is so far meeting my goals it is making hobby money. not a whole lot but enough to start to support itself. With some luck next year will see three armies come in for the following year.
Sort of tanking my way through the dungeon.

Gaming! Last month I managed to get in a game and it's looking like I will be getting one out of town game every month now. Just about according to my larger plan. Their is rumor of a campaign and if they let me in I will make the most of my day "on the town".
Not long ago I may or may not have sworn to rid myself of the Green Skins. As of now I am again trying to making them fit to fight. At this time I just don't know. This was brought on by the "Northern faction" requesting their return for some games. The next Ork codex had better kick a lot of ass. who knows.
And why not!
I may get very derailed if I continue on this direction.

The table is covered with repair work right now. The shop was picked up last night for my weekend of "Me time" Hobby time. I will be casting 60MM bases today and refitting my Killa Kanz this evening. Once that's done, well not too much left to worry with except that crap wagon. Yes, it's true I hate the GW battle wagon. Oh to looks fine and all. but it's the wrong size! way too small and compact.

But we've a waaaaaughrrrrr to make ready for. a "bit of a skrum" awaits us.

More... articles sooner or later and again with pictures.
