The month of July really flew by. While my hobby time was not as consistent as I’d have liked, I did make some progress on a few fronts. I’d been doing quite a bit of painting and I think I got a little burned out. Also, looking at the boxes on my shelves made me realize I’ve got a lot of stuff in the backlog. So I decided to build some stuff.
I’d ordered a couple of the Shrine of the Aquila kits since it looked like a bunch of Games Workshop’s old 40k terrain was getting mothballed. This was a kit I’d not gotten before so I was looking forward to building it. The Shrine is a bit of a different kit from the other Sector Imperialis kits in that you really don’t have a lot of freedom to build the kit in a bunch of different ways. There might be a couple of slight variations you can perform, but you aren’t getting two or three small buildings out of the kit like you could do with, say, the Basilica Administratum. It really is just one giant building.
