Was working all week, so did not internet to speak of, but am back for at least a few days.

My son gets home in a couple of hours and I am staring at 73 partially painted fire warriors. I am going to try my hardest to get them done this week, but do not have high hopes...

And yes...I ordered the blood bowl referees from forgeworld...oh, and a tantalus :)

So with my son coming in, I set up the army for him to look at, and decided to do an army pic :)

Everything behind the vehicles are left to be painted and the bin is full of drones...

I hear you! I feel like that with Skellies/Ghouls

Love the army shot! Is awesome to see them all lined up :D

Before the new year (or at the new year?) we should try to line up all our armies and post pics in our threads!

I don't mind the derail. Anyway, that is not a bad Idea...I think we derailed someone else's thread recently with the same thought.

Other thing we could do is show the army and what is left to do, then later do before and after. Like my big pile of elder, admech, orks etc.

As for painting, I got the neck cloths done, then the bottom rail on the backpacks. Started on the guns, did the two barrels, then after 73 of anything, I just got distracted. I may have to put them in smaller batches of like 20 or so, but I did get the complete black on the guns of about half of them.

Not much to report. Some more black bits on weapons and antenna. Slow but forward progress.

Hunkered down last night and got the last of the back done on the fire warriors. That will probably be all until new years. Going to take a little vacation.

Last night, all I did was add the black back to the base edges and the gold to the gun emblems. Baby steps, but starting to see them more than little white evil bits of plastic. :D

Yes, I turned an old cutting mat into a portable paint table...ie I stick it on an the foot rest, keep the working project and tools in a bin by my chair...I like to watch TV with the family while I paint :)

My tantalus, blood bowl referees and a couple of books just shipped from forgeworld :)...they should be waiting for me when I get back from vacation.

Probably won't be around much the next couple of weeks, so Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and I will check in before the New Year.
