Hi King Fluff here in a contemplative mood, reflecting on my hobby highlights of the year and looking forward in an attempt to order out some projects for completion.
I also managed to squeeze in a rather big (9000pts per side) game at a local GW store, which although I lost (Phantom Titans are obscene lol) it was a great opportunity to game with some of the bigger models in my collection (it also prompted me to get my second Reaver Titan standing.
Obviously joining the Bunnies crew has been fantastic for me in motivating me on a weekly basis in order to show you guys what hobby has been floating my Heresy boat.
So what does 2016 hold for King Fluff...?
Of course my Night Lords will be an enduring part of 2016 for me, I want to work on more of the kits I've bought in the vein of an all flying Night Lords army but for now my focus will be on characters and walkers whilst finishing the infantry units I've already started.
I've now settled on my avatar character for the Battle Bunnies campaigns: Jared 'King Fluff' Dane, Praetor of the 5th 'The Painted' Harlots of Nostramo - his fluff will follow in the future but I have started to collect the parts to do him justice.
They're a big part of my hobby and collection and I want to do more with them over this year, I have Reavers still sitting in boxes and I have an option on a pre-loved Warlord too. To this end I want to expand my force, adding another Reaver and a Warlord to the legios number and also adding in Titan Legion Skitarri and possibly a Triaros.
2016 is also the year of INFERNO!!! and I am so pumped for the return (or release) of the story of Prospero. I am poised to dive into the Thousand Sons again, I'm starting with Betrayal at Calth and making the set up into a 10 man tactical, 10 man heavy support (missile launchers) and 10 man tactical support squad (flamers) - I'm unsure of what my HQ choice will be as yet (and probably won't come from the BaC box). What I am intending is to add a sub-orbital attack wing consisting of Doomwings (or infact a converted version of the Xiphon interceptor). I made a Doomwing some time ago when the Valkyrie kit was released - I feel now is the perfect time to update it and cross my fingers that the Doomwing doesn't get an official model before I finish mine (which I call the King Fluff Curse).
I also have a few background projects (namely Space Wolves and Imperial Fists) which I will be dipping in and out of...
But the biggest of these will undoubtedly be getting my gaming table painted and ready for battles on. It's a custom built table with multiple tiers to game on. It houses my 6x4 Zone Mortalis, my three (undecided) Realm of Battle table tops, my 6x4 Forge World city tiles and a 6x4 custom printed Battlefleet Gothic gaming surface.
And so that's about it....
As you may have seen in previous posts, 2016 is the year of the Xenos and it most certainly will be but not the kind you can buy from a store.
My lips are sealed.
But keep your eyes on the blog.
All will become clear in the next few months.
For now I bid you all good evening and leave you with this thought;
The song Ironic by Alanis Morissette contains many situations that are unfortunate rather than ironic, thus it is not ironic but in doing so it makes the song ironic.
Your ear worm for this evening....
