Hello! ?I've started this thread to show how my painting work is progressing, with the intention to help me stick to my targets this year!
Over the last year I've gone a bit mad buying stuff, I've got enough Marines to make TWO seperate 1,500point armies, started a WFB Chaos army, and got in to Epic in a big way, buying no less than FIVE armies worth of stuff - when I already had 3,000 points of Epic Guard to paint! ?
So I have declared a New Miniatures Amnesty - no new minis until I have painted my following targets for the next year. ?My problem is that I love making the minis, and I buy them and put them together about 10 times faster than I paint them!
My aim is, over the next year, paint ONE of my 1,500 points Space Marine armies, and finish painting the 3,000 point Epic Guard force, by next summer so I can enter the 40k Grand Tournament with the former, and the Specialist Games one with the latter. ?I've called this task The Big Paint
I go back to uni monday (starting my final year), and my intention is to spend 1-2 hours every other night painting.
My target for this month is to paint at least ONE marine Tactical Squad and finish ONE detatchment of my Guard army. ?This might not sound much, but bear in mind one detatchment in this army consists of 19 Guardsmen units, 6 Chimeras, 2 Ogryn units and 4 Ratling Sniper units! ?:eek:
I'll post pics of what I'm painting, showing how they've started and how they're progressing.
As a start, here's the Tactical Squad I'm doing first. ?Ive had them assembled for a year
and not done anything with them - that's how bad I am! ?
