Pulling the Trigger
I stared at the box for about an ten minutes all of last week and decided eventually to put it together on Friday. A half day at work (and fiance at the hairdresser) meant that I the entire afternoon to play with putting it together. I took my time, as I wasn't sure exactly how I wanted to paint it, I wanted to ensure that I could paint some parts separately so that took some time. I wasted too much time magnetizing the weapons (which you really can't do, thanks GW). I'm leaning towards not even using the arm weapons and saving some points for more terminators.
I placed an order for the rest of the models from Miniature Market. It's my first time using them, I've ordered mostly from The War Store in the past. I have been 100% happy with the experience, but my professional life has taught me to never have only one supplier for a product so I've been looking for another seller to try out.
I decided to splurge and pick up some nice bases. I'd wanted for a while to try out Dragonforge's bases and as this army only has ~25 models this would be a very cost effective experience.
I picked up their Lost Empires line and I think it will really pop with the dark models.
