The last chronicle I did wasn’t an uplifting one. My father had just passed away and I was dealing with a lot.
Well, since then things have settled down. I still have a lot left to do regarding my father’s affairs, but the breakneck pace I was running at for 2-weeks straight is over.
I guess you could say that things are settling into a new normal.

For weeks I had not touched a model. The motivation to paint wasn’t there, plus I had nothing to work on. Since getting into Warhammer Underworlds, my paint queue had dwindled drastically, which I love. I hate backlogs.
Meanwhile, here’s the latest shots I took of Efreeti.
You can see my NMM work on the sword and the bronze armor.
Overall I’m happy with it. I know none of it is perfect, but I also know that I can’t spend an endless amount of time perfecting NMM on my first attempt at it.
I have to accept that this model is a learning experience, and I’m better served trying my best, learning, and moving on to the next project.
Hopefully I’ll wrap up Efreeti in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
Blood Bowl – Undead
I had totally forgotten that this team was coming out until last week at my FLGS. I had briefly seen mention of it prior, but I didn’t really look over the team that thoroughly. After seeing them in the White Dwarf, however, I realized I had to buy them.
I can’t tell you how cool I think the Mummies on the team look. Actually, it’s the same model for both on the team, which stinks, but the sculpt is awesome, so I’m OK with it. That hulking, menacing charging Mummy is just awesome.
Mummies aside, I think the team as a whole is amazing looking. This is seriously my favorite team in terms of sculpting that GW has done for Blood Bowl.
So, the Undead is my next project and I’m excited to work on them. I’m also anxious to try them out in our next season at my FLGS.
I have always done well with all the Undead teams in Blood Bowl (Khemri, Necromantic, and Undead), and enjoyed playing them, so this will be a nice break from my Human team, the Titan Bay Thunderhawks.
