Well making progress rapidly now, the leed model is fully converted, touch wood the rest of the squad will be similarly ready by the end of the week, then the painting can begin (at last lol)  8)

Nah, they'll be twenty of these in 1500pts backed up in the main by a fairly unexceptional Praetorian Infantry Platoon among other things.

Just in case you didn't know, you have to keep the photo on the photobucket website when posting them as this site relies on the photobucket site and doesn't actually download the pictures to the forum, it saves a lot of space that way.

Here's what I've got so far



Just need to do the bone and base then I'm all good

Parak your rough rider looks good!

I have been wanting to do some Cadian Rough Riders for sometime but just couldn't wrap my brain around Cadians using Horses. I was thinking of making mine on Bikes somehow. But I must say you did a good job on yours.

Unfortunately Valar it is too late. You'll have to wait until next month, when hopefuly Loydb will be taking back over, I hate running things that aren't rps.

five days vacation hurts the painting vow.
but if i dont finish im certain that only a small part of the world, where i have never been, will perish and the people will die horrible firey, gooey deaths and the stench will be great.


i got 6 done and 6 more to do.

OK, I'm officially failing on this one. Just obtained my mini today (damn model shop had it sitting on a shelf for a week). Not yet assembled or undercoated. I have however built and painted three pieces of terrain and assembled a LRC.

Oh wow, what a month. After signing up for the challenge I moved house and went away for a week. So on the 27th I sat down with my undercoated Hawks and got started, I finished 3 hawks. On the 28th I undercoated the Banshees, got started on them and finished the hawks. On the 29th I was out and yesterday, the 30th I finished the Banshees. Only had my mobile with me so the photo is poor, basing WILL occur this afternoon.

EDIT: The photo is also huge and playing up so I won't post it until I can edit it.

Hang on, I'm back in again. Raining all day today, so decided to teach my 5 year old son to paint minis. He got the best part of a squad done, I got the undercoat and base colours down on my termie chappie. If I can wash, highlight and base by midnight, I'll make it.

Edit: ink washes done. Three hours left.

Edit: most highlights done. Just edges of armour and basing. Just over an hour left. I'll photo when I'm done and post it tomorrow.

Edit: And done @ 11.45. Looking surprisingly good. Seems to help doing it all in one go. I tried taking pictures, couldn't get a decent one.
