Quick update, no pic this time but will post a new WIP soon. The Scorpions are fully camo'd up and I have started on some of the details, while the Banshees are roughly half done - I've gone for black hair on these girls, my previous ones were blondes  :)

   Well, since i've just got back into the hobby and have decided to revisit my Tau force, I might as well chuck in what i'm supposed to be doing this month.

36x Tau Fire Warriors
8x Tau Pathfinders
   and maybe: Finish the 6 Fanatics that are sat in front of my screen atm

   Yes it is a fairly large number of mini's to paint but considering that all are already assembled and primed, coupled with the fact I've settled on a colour scheme which is fairly simple it should happen.

Harlequin troupe is now finished, But I don't think I'm gonna get my Spiritwalker finished. Ended up doing 6 Deathjesters instead , because I need them more.

Pics to follow.

UPDATE:

ok 4 of the 6 waywatchers are fully done.. unfortunatly they required varnish to stop them chipping.  unfortunatly despite using matt varnish they still look glossy, is there any way to stop this or are there better matt varnishes than GW got fed up of painting these guys theyre too detailed and i seem to be getting nowhere on the last 2 lol.. moving onto next models
 
started work on the 10 glade guard, going production line style but maintaining a high quality, all legs are near completion

not long to go before im finished i hope

Latest WIP pic:



There's more visible progress on the Banshees, but that's because the Scorps were coloured in the previous pic and I've been doing details. I've spent about equal time per model on both. Currently on target.

I seem to have lost my muse. Got my LRC 80% finished, played a game with it, then.....can't muster the enthusiasm to do the tracks. Could be worse. Glad I'm not armoured company.

Anyway, I'll get it done. I've got a bagload of DE arriving soon.

I feel so guilty not having my vow done within the first 2 weeks on the month. I am use to getting done fast! Damn Flu keeping me in bed and with a massive headache for almost 2 weeks!

But I am getting there

all wraithbone done on

3 Falcons
2 Wave Serpents
3 Vypers
5 Jetbikes
7 Weaponplatforms

all the weapons have been magnetized on the Falcons.(like 9 weapons to swap out for 3 Falcons)

1 Falcon and both Wave Serpents are 100% done. Takes me about 90 mins to do the gems on one Eldar Tank, so ugh so much more to do but I will finish!


Thinking next month I will throw on my Phantom Titan to update to my new standard for wraithbone and gems.

Well I had a huge weekend of painting and powered through the reapers.

I'm quite happy with the Exarch, it's not the most involving model I've done but I like the look of it and how it turned out.



The two other reapers in the background were my colour scheme models.

Scorpions: Just need to finish off the runes on the swords, final details on the pistols, and basing.

Banshees: Colours need finalising, but mostly done - maybe 20% left to do, just little bits here and there.

Should be finished on time, will post pics when they are done.

Sweet looking models everyone.

Here's my update:  I have everything painted, and am just finishing the bases now.  I will try to take some picture soon and post them.  I went with a light brown armour and dark red skin on my tyranids, with some bright green highlights here and there.  There are looking good.

Can you add my vow to the list?  I did get it in for August 4th and all...  Did I forget to do something?

Quick update pic:



Just a few more details to do, and the bases need flocking.
