I started the month with the DAK tanks but as mentioned before, I find these a little boring and if anything I should stick with them if only to complete the project. I wasn't helped here by the fact that I now need to boost the force to 1750 points. The cure for this is a couple more tanks and some air support.
I then got distracted by a purchase I made at Vapnartak back in February and the recent defeat in the blood bowl league made me think I ought to get a head start on next years team. I decided to start on the Dinosaurs that will become my lizard man team. I will be looking for a name for this lot soon.
The biggest distraction came from my wife who came back from a trip to town unexpectedly with a bag of 37 skinks, I blame Kelly for this as he lent me the Lizardmen codex's and my little lad reads them constantly pointing out how he likes this model and that model. She decided that I ought to curry to his wishes and henceforth I have also got a Lizardman army to complete now.
The fun thing is I have been doing some conversion work, having decided to make a unit of 24 in rank and 12 skirmishers from the package it left 1 figure that I could convert to a skink chief. So out came my sundries box and some milliput.
I went online to find a musician and standard bearer for the skink unit that will be ranked and to my horror found that 2 figures was £7.70 and though F*** that, so I decided to convert a couple of extra figures.
after all here's what £7.70 gets you.
