The Conflict GT is this coming weekend, so if you are in the New York area, you best represent!
The Conflict GT was a blast last year, and I expect nothing less this time. There are sure to be a ton of beautiful models to check out, and I hope to have some photos to share after the event.
As for my own painting, I have been working on my Emperor's Children at the moment. Line-highlighting six land raiders is a bit time consuming, but I enjoy the variation from my typical "gritty" paint schemes. I am painting the whole collection "assembly-line style". Here is a pic to display the level the whole army has been brought to at this point:
I have also begun the processes of organizing components to convert up some vehicles for my old Necrons. After watching the army played, and reading a bit more of the hype, I have decided to make my own collection playable. I have a ton of models already painted, so it shouldn't be more than a dozen or so vehicles to add. I personally do not like the "Tomb Kings in Space" feel of the new models, so I have been working to find a more interesting visual style to pair with my 2nd ed models. I started with four of these beauties for Ghost Ark conversions:
You may recognize those from Voltron, as the coffins that Robeasts were deployed in. I plan to use this casket to replace the "passenger" and "boat" portion of the GW Ghost Ark model, but keep the pilot and gauss guns. I think the visual impact will match the "techno-80's" feel of those original necron raider models, while keeping a similar profile to the original model.
As for Stalkers, I am currently using lengths of drain-snake coil to create "war of the worlds" style tripod legs for these fantastic 50's sci-fi models:
These flying saucer models even include a cockpit with a glass bubble, perfect for displaying a necron pilot tapping away on multicolored buttons. Add the mandatory heat-ray, and the conversion is complete.
I will post pics of the conversions as they come along, but in the immediate future, I plan on plowing through this Emperor's Children project. Six tanks and thirty-one infantry shouldn't take TOO long. Especially not with those sweet flying saucer models giving me the eye...
