30-Day Challenge: 7 Days In

  Hullo! Today is Day 7 of the 30-Day Challenge between myself and Durne Kell. Pardon my lack of updates over the last few days, but I have been very busy with work, taking a day-trip with my brother and trying to catch up on lost sleep. I have failed, miserably, at the last...staying up hours past my bedtime, poking around on twitter. Note that I did not say anything about pushing on with finishing my Necron Warriors.

  In three days, I have glued arms and heads onto scrap sprues as preparation for the next steps of priming and base-coating them. Only two out of four sprues have been completed.

  This step was (temporarily) hampered by me losing one, very tiny arm. This was unacceptable, as the deal was that *all* parts needed to be ready for final painting.

  I never found the arm, but I have a friend who has been kind enough to give me a completely built and primed Warrior. I will, of course, be tearing the arms off of the mini, smoothing lines to meet my quality standards and re-primimg the entire model. Or maybe I'll just use the arms...

  The only other advancement I have made between the last post and this,  was to assemble 21 out of 28 minis to pre-priming level.

  Curious as to how far along the competition was, as he had also been lax in posting updates, I was soon to receive this in my inbox.

He was even so thoughtful to add the caption, "You will look good wearing green nail polish".

  After a few moments of throwing some profanities regarding how gently something could be done with a chainsaw, I was almost ready to admit defeat.

  Then, lo and behold, I received another picture...

This one being titled, "Reality".

  I was so relieved when Durne Kell informed me that he had hurriedly propped up the pieces of his Land Raider Achilles in order to make me feel the heat. The man is evil, I tell ya.

   But he may gain a huge amount of ground on me tonight...I haven't slept in 27 hours, and can not muster the energy to work tonight. Meanwhile, my evil friend will most likely work on his tank for another 6+ hours. Tonight might clinch the win for him.
