I did enjoy painting my Bretonnians when I was still into playing Fantasy, but the most enjoyment I've gotten out of painting something that isn't my Dark Angels would have to go to my Harlequins.  They turned out so well, and was a nice combination of vibrant and dark colours.
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

I've really enjoyed modelling my Deathwatch, simply because literally every model is a kitbash/conversion of some kind. Painting them is less fun (black is kind of... meh to paint for me), but putting them together has been fun.

In terms of most fun to paint, my Wood Elves were pretty fun. I opted for an winter theme, so it's all white/ivory and blue, with lots of wood/leather/stone accents.  Eldar were also fun, but I made myself a little crosseyed painting every single bump as a gem.

lol... GML and I are like mirror universe versions of each other... Eldar are my first love and I've only just recently begun both other armies (a year ago) but my Dark Angels in their original colors are my faves hands down. Getting to the checkers (see the Harlie parallel GML?) was really a breath of fresh air painting wise. Plus doing the jet black armor is a lot of fun and really quick. Also weathering the models was really great as my Eldar are super clean.

After painting only Eldar for like 15 years its been great... especially with all the great heraldry.

I had fun painting my Harlequins. They were a secondary army, which became my primary army.

That's not blatant, this is blatant: I'm super happy that I'm playing Austria, the greatest nation in all of Diplomacy!
