On Hiatus - The 205th hit the battlefield in 2012

As you will have noticed I have been absent without leave from the 205th... Generally from gaming as a whole. It's been great, I've had more time for me, saved money and had time to play some console games. The mojo is starting to return - but will be halted this Friday by the oncoming Battlefield 3 on PS3...

But you guys don't want to hear about that, you want to find out when I'm going to get moving with the Elysians!

My plan is to give myself until Christmas for playing BF3 as much as possible, then in the new year to get back on the wagon. Starting with finishing my Valkyries so they are all up to a finalised standard.

Once the Valks are done I'll be aiming to paint up my second Tauros Venator and the 2 / 3 Tauros I have. Whilst browsing the usual pages (forge world) I took a fancy to the camp pattern they have on the Tauros.

Tauros Venator
Seeing as these guys are the fast moving scouts, the camp scheme makes perfect sense. The next big challenge is to decide if I build them with the heavy flamer or the grenade launcher... decisions decisions.

In between all of that I have some more drop troopers to get painted and the original guys to get finished off... And my Protectorate of Menoth force to paint.

So until next year... unless I get the urge to slip into the garage in the meantime ;)

I realy do like the FW Venator and Tauros, might have to convert one or two for Cadia. Can you not magnetise the flamer and grenade launcher so you could have both?

I've thought about it, but they are quite small and fiddly... with sausage fingers like mine it will be difficult. However... that doesn't mean it won't be worth it. I'll have at the Tauros and see if it's possible.

The Venator is an easy change between the lascannons and multi-laser options.

It'd be great to see them for Cadians, They seem like a tool all of the Imperium would use. A fast but robust strike vehicle...
