Cheers Dez! Got me my first follower! I'm gonna try and keep short posts like last nights to a minimum. I was just back from Les Miserables (it was brilliant) and just wanted to post quickly that I had indeed finished my pledge.
Piccy Time!!

Sorry for poor quality, I'll upload better ones when the unit is complete.

Sadly, I don't have a dog :( ... or cat... or any pets at the moment so here's a picture of a picture (Picception) of my old guinea pig :)

I also added a new goal, to finish my 750 point Tyranid army as WYSIWYG. I only need to buy a Tervigon but I also need a couple more gants and a 6th ed rulebook to actually play :/ The limited gaming time I have is gonna be spent on Warmachine and Infinity.

So this is what I'm working on at the moment

I added more to the scorecard (it's only 'final date not reached' but whatever) and I slightly changed the Weekly system. My 'Week' now ends on a Saturday in line with the MWG Weekly Painting Pledge so I can get some ribbons too 8)

This week’s pledge is to paint another 2 Genestealers. I know, I know not much but school, study and this so-called 'real-world' has to come first :(

The Genestealers are looking good, it will be nice to see some basing done on them. I know it's tough when you have tons of bugs to paint, but you could really bring them to the next level by:

-Aforementioned basing
-Putting a highlight of your basecolor over the wash. You may even get away with a quick drybrush, if you're careful
-Color the eyes. I think green would go really nice. I love the new Moot Green, I've been using it on my Death Guard.

Quick, frequent updates will drive up the interest I think. I say go for it!

By the by, my family is from Ireland. My father was born in Belmullet, Co. Mayo. He goes back every year or so, I'm going to be heavily hinting that we should do a Father-Son trip ;)

The way you've set up your work week is a good idea, double motivation!

Don't worry Dez, I will base and paint the eyes, teeth and tongues on my bugs when I get the appropiate paints. I might try a Bleached Bone Drybrush at some stage. It's a good 3 hour drive (it's a lot easier to drive from coast to coast in Ireland than America :lol:) from Mayo to Dublin the capital and where wargaming has the largest following. But you should definately come and drop me a line if you do. There's a big tourist event on this year in Ireland called 'The Gathering' to advertise tourism in Ireland. Oh and thanks Soria :) I wanna see more Warmahordes! :twisted: Drybrushed the carapace on my genes yesterday but I don't know if I'll be able to wash them cause I'm almost all out of paint :cry:

Sounds good, I know I haven't bought many of the new paints. Tough to make the reinvestment.

I remember driving in Ireland very well, it's much different than the States. The side streets here are bigger than the main roads, at least driving from Shannon to Mayo. I was driving through one village (I forget the name) where I was forced to sideswipe parked cars (taking off mirrors as I did) to aboid a truck. Then there are the one car bridges and narrow, winding hill roads...it was an adventure. Oh my, I just remembered getting a flat and how I was wondering how hard I was going to get hit by speeding cars...

After the sudden realization that the December/January Painting Deathmatch ends tomorrow and determined not to take a red flag, I'm here frantically painting my Space Marine while watching Community and browsing You Tube and these forums :) I'll be online so feel free to post here or PM me to have some banter :lol:

Stuff is looking good, and your deathmatch is looking like a tough one.

25 hours to highlight my Captain?? Shouldn't be too hard. If you mean actually winning it, I've no chance not against Ocean, Crescent and all the others. I'm in it for the experience, criticism and a shiny new ribbon :)

Sorry for poor quality pics, was too lazy to put in the effort :P
This week I'm gonna paint the last two genes. I will most likely have to leave the wash because it won't last for another two models
Curahee!

Well I didn't get pictures in time to enter the Painting Deathmatch so it's a red flag for me :cry: I had family over, was cramming for tests and was feeling pretty sick on Sunday so by the time I got them up on Monday, it was too late. Anyway here are some pics of him and while I had the lightbox out I decided to take some of my Genestealers.

Not great but it was just really a test model. It was my first go, since I started painting again, at painting faces and my first time ever painting eyes. I'm also just beginning to highlight models and this was mainly a test for a colour scheme I've been playing around with. Also the flamer is HORRIBLE!! Just wanted to get all that off my chest and get some pics up. Please post comments and criticism!. Also ignore the Chaos Space Marine on the base. I started him but then I was running low on time so didn't do much with it. Reason I used flash was so you can actually see some of the highlights on the armour.

And the Genestealers:
