Mars-Crusader 2018 weekly paint

Time to get 2018 started. My FLGS held a terrain day to repair and paint the stores terrain. I missed the first week but the second week I painted up 4 Thermic Plasma Regulators. Below is a picture of the terrain that some of us started and finished that day just in time for the stores upcoming Necromunda campaign.

This week I have finished and based 3 Kataphrons. I find I am scatter brained right now and can't focus on a single army to work on and making a little progress on all of my armies instead of just finishing one.
Working on
Sylvaneth
Thousand Sons
Admech/Imperial Knights
Knights of the Raven

This week I painted up 2 Haemotrope Reactors for the stores Necromunda table. Lots of fun to paint, especially the large flat areas of white which I did with 3 thin layers of Ulthuan Grey. I'm really enjoying painting Games Workshop's industrial terrain

Thanks. The silver was done with Army Painter's Gun Metal Primer followed by a thin wash of Nuln Oil to take the shine off. The bronze is Screaming Bell with the same Nuln Oil wash.

This week I finally finished up the 60 Dryads for my Sylvaneth army and now my army of angry shrubbery are ready to descend upon the mortal realms.
It feels weird having all of the models I bought for an army completely painted.

Wow, that looks really impressive! I especially like how you managed to add a variety of bright colours without losing the uniform look of the army.
Painted in 2018:
Death Guard: 1 Malignant Plaguecaster, 2 Rhinos, Typhus, 20 Poxwalkers, 1 Beast of Nurgle, 10 Plaguebearers, 1 Predator
Dark Angels: Cypher

Thank you. I wasn't sure about them when I started but in the end the grey bark with the Easter pastel colors worked really well.
This week while being unable to focus on a single project I worked on some Shattered Dominion bases for my Thousand Sons, and Plasma Conduits which out of all the industrial terrain has been the most boring to work on. In the weeks leading to the release of the Imperial Knight codex I will be trying to paint 4 Imperial Knights before the codex drops.

This week I finished painting up 3 Imperial Knights. A Crusader, Errant, and a Questoris Knight Styrix all painted up in the colors of House Taranis adding to my warriors from Mars. If you could tell me where the missing leg guard on my Knight Errant is I would love to know.

Thanks. It was a lot of fun working on both armies. Using the upcoming Knight codex release I used it as motivation to update the paint scheme on my Knight Paladin to match the rest of army and get the Knight Lancer painted. One knight built and 4 painted in 2 weeks. I am burning thru my unpainted models this year. To celebrate I purchased an Armiger
