So, I failed miserably last month to get even ANY progress done on the Eldarz. I suddenly got really busy with school and I didn't even have time to pick up a brush... Space Marine didn't help. However, excuses aside, I decided to commit to something that I can actually finish pretty easily, with the hope that I can use any spare time to get some painting done on those dark eldar warriors. It's not really a cop out, because I have stacks of unopened boxes of dudes and vehicles that still need to be built for my 1850 list...
Without further adieu, here is the prepic:

Space Marine is insidiously eating away at my hobby time too. I swear I have no time to paint, yet somehow I'm level 23 in the multi-player :oops:
Bolter marines never go out of fashion. They are the little black dress of troops choices.

OCTOBER COMMITMENT:Complete

Complete with magnetized weapons and magnetized missiles. Aaron would be proud (maybe).

Sorry I didn't mention this sooner, but I was really busy. However, I did manage to complete my meager commitment for last month and I will make another one that I know I can complete with hopes that I have time to do more.

November Commitment:
Build final Ravager

November Commitment: Complete + some

So I built the Ravager and *GASP* I actually had time to put paint to brush and painted my venom up a little bit. It's not quite finished, and I still need to do some detail work, but I'm liking where it's going. I also started base coating my warriors, but they aren't anywhere near done so I don't want to bother putting up pictures.

December Commitment: Build 4 scourges.
EDIT: I'm not gonna bother with pre-pics, they are all on sprues still...
I intend to finish up painting that venom too, but I only want to commit to something I know I will be able to finish.

Hey So I decided to build and paint a different army, Raptors space marines. I was painting a lot throughout January and February, but I didn't make any commitments, so oh well. I will also post an updated list soon.
So here are some prepics of both March's commitment which is 5 sniper scouts 2 missile devs and a dev sergeant 2 melta tacs, 2 melta sternguard and a sternguard sergeant (aka Sergeant Badass McGee) As well as the prepics for the army itself. Unfortnately I had some orkhide shade on them before I remembered to take a picture, buuuut.... they were completely black before I started.

Little late for an army switch, since you're supposed to paint everything from scratch. Good luck!
