Month 2 ....done!

With slightly less rush to the midnight deadline here is month 2's list done
1 farseer
5 locks
2 x 6 Guardian jetbikes

I'm not very happy with the finish I have got on the warlocks. The yellow looks very dirty up close. They will do for the purposes of the painting deadline but I will probably strip and redo them with a different technique at some stage

Month 2, nearly there but there has been a small balls up!

OK, as month 2 comes to an end my 4 locks are starting to come together, just need to paint the spears and swords I have pilfered from my High Elf spearmen which where resprayed this morning and should be done by tonight. Unfortunately I have made rather a balls up on something. To quote myself "my 4 locks are starting to come together"

Yes I needed 5 for my seer council.......oops
Thankfully I have a tester bike that I tried a few colour schemes out on. It is currently in some fair power spray so hopefully will be ready to strip and prime tonight then will have to nail the painting in one session tomorrow to finish on time

Quick Update

Quick update with the work done on the warlocks. These guys at the moment look like stock Iyanden guardians. The left arms will be taken off and replaced with spears and swords pilfered from my High Elves stuck in a box somewhere and I will try my hand at some hand painted runes on them to give them 'lock status.  Hopefully they will come out reasonably well. With 2 full painting days left, yet again I am going right down to the wire!! Really must stop doing that!

N.B sorry the photo is really over reflected from the flash so it drowns out most of the highlights. Will try and take a better one

Month 2 update

OK after not a lot of activity recently here are some updates on this months work. Thankfully I only have 7 models to paint this month. 3 more jetbikes are done except for the gems. The yellow and blue jetbikes at the back of shot are going to be for my warlocks. Again the bikes are pretty much done except the gems, hopefully I will start the warlocks tonight.

Month 2 update

Errr as some of you who follow this (all 4 of you!)  might have noticed I have been somewhat slack on the updates this month. I would love to tell you that I am almost finished on this months quota of models and have merely forgot to take any progress photos but it would be a massive shamefaced lie!! 

My girlfriend (should really get the hang of using the word fiancee) has had her Easter break (she is a teacher) so I have had some holiday and a chance to spend some time with her. Still back on the job now. I have the models for this month assembled except warlock conversions. I have started another 3 jetbikes to take me up to two six man squads and then I will get the seer council done. I have 4 jetbikes I have started conversions on with 10 days to finish them. This one is going to go right down to the wire.......again!

Month 1 Complete

OK, month one finished on time....just.
Not arranged the month one games but so far everyone has full painting points. I will be facing 500 pts of nicely painted bugs and undead robots!
