Weekly Progress Update

My goal was to have one CSM unit with Rino cleaned, assembled and primed.

Well, to be honest, I got sidetracked. The unit and rino are assembled, but not primed. I spent quite a bit of time on coming up with a logo. This led me to trying to find out how to make custom decals.

Not wanting to invest heavily into this, I downloaded Inkscape and Gimp. Then spent hours playing around with both programs to get some practice. While I'm no expert, it should be possible to come up with something.

Goal for this week: To prime the assembled unit and work up a test model. Sunday, February 3, I will post a pic of the test model.

2008, The Year of Chaos

This year I plan to start and finish a new army, "The Sons of Edax" Chaos Marines. The goal is to have at least one unit of each entry from the Chaos Space Marines Codex painted by December 31, 2008. These are the models I have so far:

1 Terminator Lord
1 Sorcerer with Wings and Familiar
10 CSM with AC, Icon, and Rino
10 CSM with AC, Icon, and Rino
10 Berserkers with Skull Champion and Rino
10 Chosen with AC and Icon
8 Havocs
2 Obliterators
1 Vindicator
1 Predator

My plan is to have weekly updates of my progress and only post pics of painted units.

Week One Goal: Clean, assemble and prime one CSM unit with Rino by Sunday, January 27.
