So I guess its fairly evident little is happening here.
Allow me to explain. It seems finishing that prism took it right outta me and looking at a paintbrush or thinking about painting this last week has almost made me sick a little in my mouth.
I managed to force finishing the black on Maugan Ra and just ground to a halt half way through base coating the bone. and there he sits ……
Part of the (entire) reason other than the fact painting makes me EMO with its hellish awfulness is that I managed to work out downloads and stuff and get myself onto vassal ……
*ALARM ALARM SIDETRACK ALERT*
Its freaking addictive , being able to test lists of stuff just for a gas without having to plop down 300 quid for an army is quite refreshing and has allowed me to get creative with list building and enjoy yet another dimension of the game, not to mention being able to (avoid painting) show up to what seems to be an online gaming club and just play anyone anywhere in the world.
I fully intend to Write a full review of Vassal for my next proper post , this here be just an update.
I also swear on matt Wards life that I will post finished pictures of Ra by the end of the weekend.
In the meantime Vassal has given me the opportunity to fine tune and decide on my Ulthwe Strikeforce
Its actually not that bad considering RA is 200 points in the toilet and the Rapers are very much a unit that when it works is sublime but when it fails gets me reaching for them razor blades.
First test game against CSM saw them being de meched by missile spam (TL EML very accurate btw, me likey) then Raped (or is that reaped……) by tempest launchers + guide when they drop out.
Anyway here be ze list. And Ill get back with a review and some painted shite for ye
