2014 Painting Quests!

Post by venomedpenguin » Tue Dec 31, 2013 11:30 pm

Hello everyone! It's 2014 (or there abouts, depending on time zone) and you know what that means? A fresh start to the painting blog/goal! Let's get crackin!

Step 1: Start with a goal, i.e. "I'm going to finish my High Elves this year!"

Step 2: Post your progress on this thread. Sample "Here's my 40 finished Shadow Warriors!"

Step 3: Provid feedback on your fellow gamers posts. "That bolt thrower conversion looks amazing! How did you do it?"

Step 4: Add Death Magic or Wraithknight

Step 5: Profit

Okay clearly those last two where jokes. But here's the lay down.
-Anyone can post!
-Any system is welcome! (Fantasy, 40k, Flames of War, Firestorm Armada...etc)
-Give feedback and encouragement to new players and posters. Tips, tricks and advice are always welcomed.
-Motivate your friends! Some people can get in a slump and ditch a project! Keep their interests in the hobby and lead by example. It's tough work, but a fully painted army on the table top looks soooo good!
-Don't try to out do Todda, it's just not going to happen! If you really want to, he can paint your army for you! Trust me, he's good at what he does.
-Please continue your 2013 progress onto this thread. Don't do a ton of reposting, a simple "...last time on the painting blog." will do nicely.

That's just about it! Have a happy new year and let's get some stuff painted!

For 2014 I am going to finish my 3000+ point Ogre Kingdoms army and start my Eldar as well! It's very late so I will post my progress tomorrow! However on the painting block is:
3 Ironguts, 1 Ironblaster, 10 Guardians.
I'm breaking the armies down bit by bit so I don't get bored with just one army. Do some ogres then Eldar then back to Ogres.
Pictures to come!

My goal is basically to finish everything I have at the moment and finish a new project, which will either be fantasy terrain or a 40k lost and the damned formation (150+ cultists and 2-4 apostles). But I haven't decided yet which it will be.

But here is my list at the moment:

EMPIRE:
15 Knightly orders
6 demigryph knights
1 Great cannon
1 Mortar
1 kitbashed mounted warrior priest
15 swordsmen
General/amber wizard of Griffon
Karl Franz on the Imperial Dragon

CSM:
25 basic Chaos Marines
5 Possessed
Maulerfiend

IG:
5 Weapon teams

MISC:
Rider less high elf dragon (Imrik model, using all plastic parts)
Sisters of battle exorcist that my wife wants me to paint.
Time will tell... Sooner or later... Time will tell.
WH40k:
IG 5000pts[95% Painted]
Word Bearers 10000pts[89% Painted]
WHFB:
Empire 5000pts[95% Painted]

FYI, I'm Dutch, not Finnish, I just live there.

I am going to be starting Warriors of Chaos, but I don't yet know what of them I will be collecting since I just got the army book. I'm probably going to start with a few chariots though, they look fun.

Just to play along, let's guess about building and painting:
3 Chariots
30 Chaos Warriors
3 Skull Crushers
1 Character on Manticore
1 Battle Standard Bearer

However, I will be working on finishing up my Space Wolves and Marines. I have been playing them for nearly two years now, and they still need a couple things. This will consist of painting:
1 Thunderwolf
1 Storm Talon
2 Drop Pods
1 Emperor's Champion
Some assorted Heavy Weapons guys
Approximately 10 Marines/Grey Hunters
And 9 Marines outside my color scheme for my brother

Beyond that, it's up in the air. I would like to get me some a Chaos Marine or Farsight Enclaves army, but for now I'll keep the goals tame. Between family, a girlfriend, and a job, I don't have as much time to paint as I used to. If I try for anything more than that, it may be too much.

Edit: I'm changing it up a bit. I'll be doing Warriors of Chaos, while getting my Lizardmen painted up. I'm thinking of doing a point-for-point ratio of Lizardmen to Chaos, so that way I can get them both painted up sooner. So for my first Chaos Chariot, I'll get 10 Lizardmen done.

My primary goal for 2014 is just to make a dent I the vast ranks of unpainted models I currently own. I'll be starting with my Legion of Everblight since Warmahordes is by far the most played game around here, then I'll move on to my Tyranids, then Vampire Counts, then Dark Angels, then Lizardmen. I've done pretty good so far this year (by my books) painting my entire Infinity collection (6 models :P) in about a week, so here's hoping I can keep it going.

My current projects are:
Lizardmen Carnosaur (for a Painting Deathmatch)
Legion of Everblight Carnivean chassis beasts (1 Ravagore, 1 Scythean, 2 Magnetized)

What I've done so far:
Infinity Combined Army starter

Made a little progress. Did the base for the grey parts on all the magnetized arms and heads, did some of the browns and other colours, and managed to fully complete the assembled ravagore

Got this guy done last week:

Working on a riderless dragon atm, trying to get it done so I can start on my Knights.

Models in order of priority:

Riderless Dragon(because I started it and want it of my desk)
Mounted Warrior Priest + Knights(use pretty much the same colours so doing them at the same time)
Cannon + Mortar
At least 4 but probably 6 demigryphs(need 4 for a list, but might as well paint the others while I'm at it)
15 Swordsmen

These models I would like the have finished by the end of march, so me and Stanfar can have a big 'ol 5000 point fantasy battle.

After I get those models painted immediate priority goes to:
Warhammer Fortress, missing 1 wall
Warhammer Watchtower

Making terrain that I will hopefully have done in time for said battle.
Time will tell... Sooner or later... Time will tell.
WH40k:
IG 5000pts[95% Painted]
Word Bearers 10000pts[89% Painted]
WHFB:
