Got my first Necron done! I kept it pretty simple since I have another nine of them to paint. Check out that base, it's this special paint called Martian Ironearth from Games Workshop that cracks as it dries!

Current Beanie status: very relaxed.

Got all the boxes I need to create the six squads for Fireteam now (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1916). I'd SAY that's the last of the miniature purchases for a while, but we all know that's a filthy lie. 😅

I've been doing a bit of experimentation with my miniature painting! First was finding a good colour scheme for my Tyranids and also using the "Muddy Ground" texture paint and little grass tufts I bought back in October (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1855). The second has been "zenithal highlighting" where you base coat in black and then do a second prime with a lighter colour just from above, where the light would be hitting it. Very pleased with both!

We also made ice cream this morning!

I made myself a batch of Quorn-based spaghetti bolognese yesterday, had the first one for lunch today and it's excellent. I'm not sure I'd really have noticed it wasn't beef if I wasn't paying attention!

On the back of the giant sack of bread flour I've got there's a few recipes for various things, and one of them is damper. I decided to finally get around to making it and it looks pretty good, though I'm not entirely sure what happened with the splitting there.

I finished the leader of The Crimson Court back in September (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1839) but hadn't been feeling in the painting mood apart from that. I finally got around to finishing the rest of the warband now! (Though as is becoming a theme lately, I need to wait for it to be not hot or humid in order to get the varnish done so I can then put the blood effects on top of that).

I think my favourite thing about Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is that you you can dip your toes into ALL the factions without having to spend an arm and a leg making a full army (plus the subsequent time expenditure of painting them). It's pretty much, "Buy a couple of boxes of the basic troops and bam, you've got a squad."

I played a game of Fireteam against myself tonight, just to get a hang of the rules. I really like it! It's pretty straightforwards and nice and fast-paced.
