I seem to be stuck in an endless cycle of assembling, priming and half-painting stuff! This photo is pretty embarrassing, showing most of the figures I have started this year. On the left, some recently assembled Tau. Front of centre, some Mierce Albain - intended for Saga Picts, Scots or Irish. At the rear, a couple of dwarf pieces. Then there's the part painted vikings and primed Lord of the Rings dwarfs. There's even a steampunk figure in there.
I am hoping to knuckle down and get some of these completed in the next few months. As I mentioned recently, one thing I want to do is learn how to use an airbrush, hence the Tau plastics. The Pirahna vehicle should prove a good testing ground, plus I might also be able to paint parts of the infantry with the airbrush. I have about three more squads of this size to put together. They are configured with an eye on the Gates of Antares rules - squads of eight, which includes a leader and a "big gun" upgrade, plus a drone/droid thingy. Before I get too carried away on that front, I want to finish the viking archers and paint the Picts. Too many figures!
