Hobby Journal: Day 2: Blood Knights

Day 2 of 2024. It's time to keep the ball rolling and build some more of the Soulblight Gravelords miniatures that I have on sprue.

My plan is to build up most (if not all) of the SBGL miniatures I have before I run out of steam on the building front. It's perhaps my least favourite part of the hobby process. I enjoy putting the models together and seeing the final miniature on the table, but I really detest the clipping and cleaning portion of that excercise.

Soulblight Gravelords on sprue

I've got a lot of miniatures still on sprue for this army:

  • 1 Vengorian Lord / Lauka Vai
  • 10 Blood Knights
  • 40 Deathrattle Skeletons
  • 3 Vargheists

I'm not sure the Vargheists will actually end up in my Soulblight army, it's the same kit that makes Crypt Flayers / Crypt Horrors for the Flesh-eater Courts army, and I think they're better placed in that army (as the Vargheists aren't great in SBGL). More FEC coming in later weeks.

I managed to get 10 Blood Knights clipped, cleaned and built ready for basing and priming. I also took a few shots of my currently built and painted Soulblight Gravelords collection (currently around 1,000pts) for someone at the club to show to someone who's interested in starting a SBGL force.

A productive day (a public holiday, so don't expect this level out output on an ongoing basis!).
