Everyone else is doing it, so I thought I'd join in (peer pressure!). I got a lot of stuff on my desk so I will be able to paint atleast a model every single day for....months.... :P

Welcome aboard! Remember that the goal isn't necessarily to paint a complete model every day, but to simply make *some* progress every day. Of course, if you're comfortable at that pace, I sure won't try to talk you out of it!

Today I get started on a Cygnar battle box commission that I really have only done the blue basecoats for, and if I get tired of that I can move back to the menoth for a while.

Day 2 - No pictures today, but I got a Lancer Warjack, and the basecoats for the Ironclad, Charger and Stryker, along with the main bone colours on a Vanquisher and Crusader warjacks. Pretty good day for work, tomorrow is detailing work

Hey mates, getting some work done today as well, more work on the Cygnar battlebox, I'm going to try to finish up Stryker and maybe the ironclad if I get some momentum, also going to try and get all the Daughters of the Flame's faces done, cuz faces take me a good bit of time to get em to look nice

Oh god I did relatively little today, I got the Charger Warjack's details started and the Ironclad's gold work started up. I might do a little more work between now and when i hit the sack. Work in the AM.

my club has a lot of young high-schoolers who are just getting into the hobby, so they like flood the parts with super glue, so all the detail is like GONE, and then they ask me to paint it and make it look good.

Right now its for commissions, but I have a full 40pt Retribution of Scyrah army that is mine that I'm gonna paint, but I'm waiting on some army painter grey primer cuz i'm painting the dreaded white lol.


Right now I'm kinda resting after a stressful day at university. If I get anything done it'll be working on the Daughters of the Flame.

Everyone loved the commissions I got done already, yay :D I'm doing something rite!
