Get ready for some nostalgia as we look back at The Mad Mek's 2015! (Cue Flashback Music)
|Close enough to Friday...|
January started off with me painting up a large Dark Eldar for my good friend to take to LVO. He did not have the time so I cranked out about 1650 points give or take, to a three color minimum standard. I had a huge challenge with this project since the Dark Eldar were all primed with this glossy turquoise primer. The detail work was hard and the end result was not great at all. I was just glad that I finished. 30 warriors, 6 Venoms, 5 Raiders or Ravagers (I still mix those up) and the DE fighter. This took up the entire month.
|Oi! Wurs moi weathrin you git!?!|
April was rough. My father committed suicide at the beginning of the month after he was put on hospice care. It was very hard to get back to anything seeming normal. One of the most amazing things that came out of that event was the tremendous support and kind words from you, me fellow bloggers and hobbyists. I really appreciate those of you who took the time to lend me some support. Thank You. When I got a little more motivated, I built some Mek Gunz, Mad Dok, and knocked out the Dakka-Pod.
|Need to work on that freehand!|
July was family vacation month and we spent time at Legoland and at Disney California Adventures. My son had a blast (so did I). On the Hobby Front, I finished my Pink Horrors for my FLGS run summer league.

August saw the completion of the 2014/2015 Hobby To Do List and the start of the 2015/2016 Season. My new goals were totally focused on the upcoming Las Vegas Open. I also finished my Bloodletters of Khorne for the summer league.
|I am still very happy with these guys|
In October I knocked out a Trukk and finished the 1st 10 man squad of Tankbustas
November was huge! I was firing on all hobby pistons. Mad Dok, Meganobz, Zhadsnark, another Trukk and a Warboss on a bike!
December is already over! I had some good momentum here as well. I finished a Big Mek Buzzgob conversion, Grot oilers, a unit of grots with a runtherd, the Big Mek Stompa, , and a few Warbikes.

LVO is coming quick so I skipped the weathering on the Stompa. I will do it if I have some time. So a big year of progress! I still have a bunch of stuff to finish before LVO so I am going to be painting like a madman (a Mad Mek actually). If any of you readers are going, let me know. I would love to meet face to face and grab a bite to eat while we talk about the hobby we love. Again, thanks for all of the support for the past year. More cool stuff to come!
Oh! In case you were wondering what I have left to do before Feb 3:
Painboy on a bike
Nob with PK on a bike
11 Grots plus Runtherd
WISH. ME. LUCK. LOL! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
