Necron Flayers Suck

Or, more specifically, Finecast sucks.  The current Flayers are Finecast models with some pretty spindly parts.  My plan is to never buy another Finecast model.  I'll convert what I need to convert, but I'm not using Finecast parts.

This is causing a bit of an issue with my Necron army.  I can make some pretty nifty Lords and what not out of the Praetorians box, but the Flayers have eluded me.  I've seen tons of conversions online where people just put plasticard "scissors" on the end of Warrior arms.  I'm looking for something a little more exciting.

I'm going to buy some of these and see if I can do a conversion that looks convincing.  Wish me luck...

I'm not dead.

It occurs to me that posting a cryptic message about going into surgery, followed by total radio silence was probably a little grim and misleading.

The surgery was minor and fine.  I just fell out of the hobby for a little while.  Kill Team has sort of captured me and pulled me back in.  My local store ran a short campaign to test the waters and quite a few people signed up.  I'm in for the second, followup campaign.

Let's see...  what else is new?

I got a new job.  I'm a projects guy at one of the bigger banks.  My first task was to go to the Bahamas for a week and review some stuff there.  Pretty tough gig!

I also got a 3D printer.  I can't remember if I posted about it or not before.  I've been cranking out terrain left and right.  It's not great for models, but it's pretty solid for vehicles and terrain.  I'm working on a custom Kill Team board in the background now.

More to come.  The goal is to get back to posting Monday, Wednesday and Friday...  starting with tomorrow's welcome back hobby post.
