First round of Gaunts and a quick survey

Okay, these guys are done: six termagaunts for my son's tyranid army.  What's more, I can add six points to my painting total for the year, and October won't be a complete wash in terms of miniatures painted.

Okay, so here's the question.  I maintain really four blogs, one wargaming, one RPG's, one zombies, and one personal (that last I never update, having learned the pitfalls of revealing personal information on the internet). Should I consolidate into one blog, or leave each of the flavors separate?  Comments, please.

Going back to the old

I got tired of the "dynamic view" blogger layout, so I went back to the old style.

I hope you like it.

WIP Gaunts

So, it's been a while since I posted on this blog.  Mostly that's because I've been hanging out at my RPG blog, Graph Paper Games, doing stuff there.  But I've got back into the saddle again with my son's tyranids.  Here is a WIP shot of the first set, six termagaunts.  My son wanted the color scheme from the previous-to-the-current codex, and while I didn't (and really can't) go into that level of detail, I've approximated it pretty well I think.  At least he's pleased.

As a side note, I have been trying out this dynamic thing on Blogger, but I'm not sure I am a fan.  What did you all think of it?  Comments appreciated.

The Tyranid Pile

So, long story short, a friend of mine sold me his Tyranid collection for a song.  And I mean a short, three-and-a-half minute pop tune.  Part of it was that he wanted to get the minis out of his condo where he and his family live, part of it was he knew my son would enjoy them since he's such a fan of Tyranids.  In any case, I got loads of them, as you can see from the above pic.  But that wasn't all of them.

I don't even know what's there, but I saw genestealers, hormagaunts, warriors, lictors, raveners, gargoyles, a carnifex, a biovore, a genestealer patriarch, and a hive tyrant.  And that's only part.  So now I've got another army to paint, probably in a pretty simple color scheme, and likely using the dip.  This might be my 2012 project in the offing here.
