100 Days of the Big Build

The big build was supposed to start January 1st, but I’m a useless shite sometimes and it wasn’t until June 24th this year that I sat down and began to build the various Space Marine models I had kicking around. That was 100 days ago, and from there I’ve gone from this: 

To This!

Okay, the two Imperial Knights were already built before hand, and including the 22 models projects that have been shelved since the start of the 2019/20 Hobby Season, that’s 218 models built in 100 days. 

It’s safe to say I am well chuffed with this performance. Looking at the more focused project list this leaves me with 35 models to build between the two projects.

The new project list (final) (finalfinal) 2.docx

My Codex Space Marines project currently consists of 216 Blades of Retribution Space Marines and their attendant war machines, supported by 2 Imperial Knights with 4 Imperial Assassins skulking around, of which only 24 remain to be built. Unless I find more cool models hidden away in boxes. Ssssh, no, stay focused

  • Six Space Marine Centurions,
  • Three Primaris Suppressors,
  • Two Primaris Lieutenants,
  • A Primaris Ancient,
  • A Land Speeder,
  • A Redemptor Dreadnought,
  • A Venerable Dreadnought,
  • A Rhino,
  • A Rhino Primaris,
  • A Land Raider Crusader,
  • A Land Raider Excelsior,
  • A Primaris Repulsor, and
  • A Primaris Repulsor Executioner

On top of these 40k models I still have 11 models for the new Epic scale games Specialist Games has put out left to build.

  • A Warlord Titan,
  • Six Imperial Knights,
  • Two Marauder Destroyers, and
  • Two Thunderbolt Fighters

Once that’s all done, the Big Paint begins in earnest.

I have struggled with Hobby Motivation, but the #HobbyStreak tag on Twitter has been a real source of motivation. Big shout out to Rob, who hit day 137 yesterday, who has been a real inspiration to follow.
