This months total - 260 pts

Image

This puts me 1 month ahead but I'm gonna need that as I'm planning on fitting in the landraider over next few months and thats almost 2 months of points to paint. That and I probably will increase the points but I'll figure that out in a few months depending how they go as I'll have less time and I've been spending more and more time on my eldar of late :)

Great looking update! For the land raider, since you are splitting that up over 2 months, the first month, give us a work in progress shot and then the final shot the next month.

Next Batch of Niddies just got done this morning!

This is 23 Genestealers in total:

12x Scything Talons, Extended Carapace and Toxin Sacs = 324pts
11x Scything Talons = 220pts (11 since it was originally going to be a broodlord retinue)

Total = 544

(I could say they all scuttle to put that nicely past 600pts but not bothering)

I may be adding a broodnest to one of these groups in the next little while (I'm working on some of my Nid Terrain pieces for a display board now.)

Painting wise these were fairly laborious with their scything talons (there's three stages to the claws / whitish parts on my Nids and the talons added that much more to the completion time of these stealers)

My next painting pledge item is likely going to be 12 Raveners. I want to start making use of my raveners so they'll get some painting love. Plus, the way I have them kitted out makes them all worth 600pts right on the button for next months entry.

Sorry, but I'm gonna have to use a joker for this month (and maybe next month) because I'm going to have surgery done and its got a long recover time... So i really wish i could finish this month, but i "might" be able to get some things done so I'll just play a joker and if i get anything done I'll post that.
Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.
Tau: 2000 Points
Eldar: 60 Points.

Man, I've played 2 Jokers already... I'm going to have to paint 600 points of Necrons and 300 points of Tau this month to earn them back...

That's scary.

I'm going to go ahead and play my joker early this month. I'm in the middle of an outage at work and am working 4 12 hour shifts on, and one day off for the next 10 weeks :(. Hopefully I'll get enough done with what little spare time I get I won't have to joker in Oct.

This month's total: Cadian Command Squad 150 points (I overpainted last month so I have some play)

Image

Brief Thoughts:

This squad was a pleasure to paint. I spaced them out, and did one guy a day to keep fresh, ended up taking under a week! Some of the detailing on the officer and standard bearer proved to be a little bit difficult, but if you just go at it with a small bead of paint on a tiny brush and take your time, it really pulls the model together and gives him that little extra pop
