Zipding's #theweeklypaint2014

Post by Zipding » Fri Jul 11, 2014 12:05 am

Greetings all!

I've been painting at least once a week since end of April/early May, but this is the first time I'm actually posting something here.

These are the models that I currently have unpainted and sitting on my desk, desperately needing and wanting paint on them.

Without further ado, the list of models that need paint by army with progress:

Orks:
5 Bikes (primed, some have first coat)
7 Deffkoptas (primed, riders done on all, first coat done on some of the fuselage)
1 Meganob (primed, skin has first coat)
1 Deff Dread (Mostly done, in camo scheme, so it takes a while to get done)
1 Trukk (several coats done, mostly unfinished, though, crew finished)

Tau:
12 Kroot (primed, a couple have first coat)
12 Fire Warriors (first coats mostly done)
7 Drones (most have first coat, one doesn't)
3 Stealth Suits (primed)
1 Devilfish (partly done, still a fair ways to go)

Vampire Counts:
1 Cairn Wraith (primed)
20 Crypt Ghouls (primed)
20 Skeleton Warriors (About half are done, other half are one coat away)
10 Grave Guard DONE!
4 Black Knights/Hexwraiths (riders mostly done, mounts several coats away)
1 Corpse Cart (Wooden frame almost done, rider mostly done, rest primed)

Skaven:
39 Clanrats DONE!
2 Weapons teams (first coats mostly done)
1 Warlock Engineer (primed)
1 Warlord (first coats done on some of the model)

Space Marines (Blood Angels scheme):
20 Tactical Marines (first coats done on majority of models)

Lizardmen:
1 Bastiladon DONE!
1 Skink Priest (about halfway done, need to do detail on staff, claws, plaque, etc)
2 Jungle Swarms (primed)

Tyranids:
19 Termagaunts (first coat and wash done, working on second coat)
10 Genestealers (same as termagaunts)

Dark Eldar:
1 Raider (hull mostly done, first coats on other areas complete)

High Elves:
1 Prince/Noble on Griffon (primed, painting it up for GF, waiting for her to paint her first model)

Total number of models: 145

Number of models completed: 59

I have an update.

I'm behind on schedule with these guys, I don't think I'll finish them before tomorrow, but there's a good chance they'll be done for Tuesday.

On an unrelated note, I finally ran out of Devlan Mud and had to get Agrax Earthshade.

Pictures will be uploaded when I finish the clanrats.

Poot thing... I'll be hitting that point too soon enough. I've used a couple of the new washes already and there's not really a difference. I'll be curious to see how Agrax Earthshade matches up to Devlan Mud though.

I know I haven't been updating recently, I've fallen behind my schedule. A couple of steps took longer than expected, but my clanrats should be done on Sunday.

I'm also leaving the Weapons Teams for now, they require a couple of extra steps that the others clanrats don't need.

Pics will be uploaded when they are done.

Clanrats are done and with pics too!

I cut out a step because of time and I want to get other stuff done.

Sorry I had to put the codes in. I'm a bit too tired to figure out how to link the actual pics.

you just click on the "image" bar (bottom of the four). That copies it, then you just paste it in your message.

Next project:

Vampire Counts stuff.

I have 20 Skellies, 20 Crypt Ghouls, 10 Grave Guard, and 4 Black Knights/Hexwraiths that can be worked on.

And it will be the same colour pallets throughout, so it's just more batch painting.

I'll update as I get closer to finishing.

Sorry for the long wait for a reply. Let me start by saying this: I will be taking a break from seriously painting for a couple of weeks.

These past four months since I got home from university have been insane painting wise. Also, lots of new models have been gained including all the Skaven, a new Deff Dread, the Grave Guard, a Cairn Wraith (which I bought thinking it was a Necromancer, a bit stupid I know, but I just use it as a Necromancer for now), and a Bastiladon.

I will update the top list with this new stuff and how far along I am on my current project (skeletons, hexwraiths and mounts, Grave Guard are done except for banner).

I will post a video later this evening showing everything in my collection (40k and Fantasy), which I already counted comes to about 533 models, most of which are painted.

I return to university in a couple of weeks, so I will try to update this as much as I can during that time but I will update this: the models painted since I got back in May:

12 Tyranid Spore Mines
1 Tyranid Termagaunt (test model)
40 Skaven Clanrats
10 Vampire Counts Dire Wolves
10 Vampire Counts Grave Guard
4 Vampire Counts Black Knights (mounts not included)
1 Vampire Counts Hexwraith (mount not included)
2 Skaven Rat Ogres
1 Skaven Packmaster
9 Vampire Counts Skeleton Warriors

I'm going to be taking a break for a couple of weeks while I pack up and move back to university. I'll try to paint as much as I can, but with my degree, time will be very short on hand. The only thing I might be able to promise is that I might get some painting done Tuesday nights for the next few months.

I hope everyone else enjoys their painting escapades and get those armies painted to show everyone else.
