Hidyho! So it looks like we did not perish in the Mayan end of the world thing. So I decided to start this up again, only I'm going to jazz it up a bit. Instead of a daily paint, I want to do a weekly paint. I also have a specific goal in mind for this year. I want to paint a playable 2k point army. It seems like I have a good start on eldar this year, but I need to come up with a list. I will post that here as soon as I make it. So yeah. I decided that if I miss a week, I owe a painted maxed out unit. We'll see how it goes :)

BLUE: Goal met, something painted
RED: Goal missed, model owed
GREEN: models completed

January:
On the table: Avatar (commish), Warlock, Eldrad, Farseer, 10 Fire Dragons, 30 Warp Spiders(?)
Week 1 - Avatar, Warlock, 10 Fire Dragons, Farseer
Week 2 - Eldrad, Start Warp Spiders
Week 3 - Continue Warp Spiders
Week 4 - Finish Warp Spiders

Tomorrow should be a good day for painting. well this entire week should be a good day for painting :P I am dogsitting for the week and I always get so much done then. I'm thinking by tomorrow I'll have taken care of my non-painting days, so here's hoping!

Thanks Mike! That should totally count as like 5 regular minis :P

But guess what? I don't need those extra 5 minis because I finished up 7/8 of the Justice Department commission! I'll most likely bring my lamp over to the house I'm staying at and try and finish up #8. I call him the PitA.

My sins are absolved and I have finished so far 8 minis in 18 days >.> I'm so freaking slow but progress is progress, so :P

Update time! It looks like my gems (the billions of them) on the weapons for the wave serpent are almost finished. After that, a touch of teal, clean up with some purple and the majority of them will be finished.

The turret and the side parts will need a bit more work and galaxying, so hopefully I can kick some butt and get the tank done 100% tonight.

I ended up listening to my body and stopped for the night. Should only be an hour or so to do the last 3 tiny little pieces, though I will have to take the tank on a trip home to get the star flecks, I forgot my hobby toothbrush >.<

The cake mixes were godly.

Sure do. I learned my lesson when I brushed my teeth and they turned chaos black.

So I delivered my commission. He was very happy with it and gave me moar to do! Yay for commissions. In a couple of weeks I might also get a high elves army to paint o.O GO ME!

I also won the tank competition at the local GW. The next competition is a spesh muhreen competition. The only stipulation is that it is an unknown theme. So I can't paint like an Ultramarine or Crimson Fist. Has to be something totally unusual. apparently there is also extra points for fluff.

All I have left for this month is my Eldrad. :D

I can't wait to see your take on Eldrad, and for the Marine, do a pre-heresy Chaos Chapter... or will they give you the theme?
