Default 1500 xmas painting challenge

right its not far off now and i'm pretty sure i have some shiney new models on the way. So i reckon now would be a very good time to get some models that i already have painted up. I plan to get 1500 points painted or finished off in some cases, by christmas. Now it doesn't have to be the same army if you don't want too. Its just a good oppertunity to get stuff out the way so you can concerntrate on the good stuff, you'll be getting for xmas. I'm going to start with a defiler and 2 oblits tomorrow, and prob some direavengers and firdragons after that. I'll post my progress and let you guys know how it goes.

ok here's the defiler, done although will be revistited at some point. I hate the living weapon arm. Does anyone know of any decent conversions for it?

Looks good for a speed paint


Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes

i Did think about it by they are actually too small for the defiler.

well i got the defiler done, 2 oblits, undercoated 16 direavengers, converted and 75% painted the autarch did the conversions on 3 shining spear coldone mounts. made the vibros and started painting them. started a waveserpent and finished painting Warlock chris' falcon.

not quite the 1500 i was aiming at but not a bad effort i feel

I'll hop in on this one.

I'm pretty sure im getting a SM Megaforce and some other things for Xmas once i visit my father's house.

But im an average painter, it may take me some...(as in a lot) of time to get a full SM army ready.

I wanna make it spiffy!
