whew I cut it close this month!  but I finished my vow with this last 4 hour session. ATM though I cannot show proof with pics as I loaned my camera to a friend and will have to post them later. It took me about 4 hours per tank to update each of my tanks. 45 mins per weapon platform, an hour per bike and and 2 hours for the Wraithlord. I added a few things to my list as the month passed by but here is what I finished. I redid all the undersides and weapons to my new Bone color standard. Did a minor new color add to the topsides for my Alaitoc paint scheme, and the part that took the longest was all the gems on each piece.

Touched up my Scorpion II 30% repaint

Touched up all the rest of this list. each about a 70% repaint

2 Wave Serpents
3 Falcons
1 Prisim
1 Wraithlord
6 Weapon PLatforms
and 7 Jetbikes (2 s.cannons and a Warlock on a jetbike)

my back is killing me from being hunched over so much lately!
9,000 pts Eldar - Alaitoc - 6,500 pts Blood Angels
8,000 pts Imperial Guard - 3,000 pts Tryanids
3,000 pts Sisters of Battle - 4,000 pts Orks
2,000 pts Chaos - 1 Massive Crack Addiction

Well with one day to go I'm announcing that I'm not going to run it next month, so if any of you want to pick it up that would be great. I've also finished my vow, my cannoness is looking pretty good, I've begun to use inks for my models and the green power sword is looking good.

I'm done. Such as it is. I really don't like painting tanks much, so I haven't added much in the way of highlights etc. but I'm happy that it's done well to battlefield standard. Pics later. That's me done for deathwing for now. I'll start painting dark eldar next month (and probably through to well after christmas).

Khemri - I'll run next month's thread if you like (and if there is sufficient interest still). I can probably work out how to set it up, but pm me with anything you think I should know.

edit: unless our illustrious new mod would like to run the painting challenge? congrats again NR.

Tyranids are done

My Nids are done.  I had to make a slight change to my vow since the tournament rules changed as I was painting them, but basically I just didn't base 2 genestealers and 1 tyrant guard out of the bunch.  They are painted though.

I've painted and based: 10 Genestealers, 6 Warriors, 2 Raveners, 1 Tyrant Guard, 2 Biovores with 8 Acid mines, 1 Hive Tyrant, and 1 Carnifex.

Also painted but not based: 2 Genestealers, and 1 Tyrant Guards.

And already painted but had to base: 16 Genestealers, 16 Hormaguants, 8 Termagants, and 1 Carnifex.

Not bad for a month's work.  :D

btw, I placed 13th out of 20 at the tournament, by winning 3 and losing 3 games.  My best tournament ever!

[edit Aug 31]  Here are some pics (somewhat blurry, sorry):

ok I got my camera and took some pics. The pics don't due justice to the gems. The flash just seems to drown them out a bit.

Sorry guys, but I won't be able to complete my vow... I seem to be the only one who won't be able to impress all the rest with a great dispay :'(.
On the other hand, I did get to run a small 3-day campaign with some friends instead. With spare time being scarce, I figured my time with my friends would be more valuable. As for my models, my remaining 1 spider, 1 exarch and 4 rangers will be done soon...

Done and done. I know the pics aren't that great, I'm still trying to figure out the camera on my phone. I'll retake some pics with my girlfriend's digital camera. That I at least know how to use.
