Here is the new thread for August.

This month is a chance to earn back one of your 'Too much real life' tokens. If you enter 2 units this month and have used any real life tokens previously I will let you claim one of these back.

Good luck everybody and keep those entries coming.

So basically this month should be spent on less boozing and being hungover on days off and more time painting to make up for previous transgressions.

Lets get it on!

Oh, and I shall start this month with a Destroyer Lord :)

10 man firing squad of infantry for me.

If I get them done with time to spare, then I will also be trying to get my IN navy fleet totally done....or paint more guardsmen, we shall see.

I'm still waiting for the movers. So I can't finish my devastators. However, I decided to repaint my special characters. I've finished Mephiston (originally painted in 2002) and the Sanguinor, except for the bases. My basing kit is not here yet. I've added a few progress shots to show the method used. I uploaded these from my phone and it flipped them all.

This is going to be a crazy month. In addition to the usual full time job and parenting this month the mrs. and I are volunteering at a music festival as a "work-cation".

I'm aiming pretty low this month. My goal is an Iron Warriors terminator lord (style #2).

I already have about 20 terminators about half and half rogue trader era painted in a generic dark-metal chaos renegade scheme and half 2nd ed pewter ones painted in Iron Warriors colors. The old ones include a few characters but I don't really have an Iron Warrior terminator character.

I wrote almost the same thing in this thread last night and this morning it was gone. So either its a mystery or I was tired and previewed it instead of posting it. Ah, well.

Good luck everyone!

First one for this month done! My Destroyer Lord, had started with the Finecast Des Lord body but as with all the older figs that have been re-done in finecast, in my experience anyway, it was riddled with air bubbles and did not take the paint very well. Have replaced it with bits from the original destroyer kit and the overlord bits from the command barge, has turned out alright I think.

Have also finally found a way to get transfers on a figure without them looking like transfers and being all shiny and horrible.

Base is a bit plain at the moment, needs something else to make it stand out a bit more I think. Will wait and see how many scarabs I have spare once they are all put together and maybe stick a couple on there to finish him off.

On to item number two for August, either some scarabs or some warriors, amazing what some time off work and a little motivation towards getting things painted can do :)

Score, looks like I'll be doing... um, let's go with scarabs and warriors (because you can never have enough warriors...) pictures incoming at some point in the near future.

Alright ... A-barge attempt #2:

Yes, it still looks like this ... sadly. :blush:

Hopefully I'll be able to get a 2nd unit done so I can get my RL-card back! :victory:
