I loved painting this model, the detail is amazing (pics are abit blury) there is something everywhere that just makes the model pop just that little bit more.

The big resin base helps with the top heavyness of the model, and all those ribbons everywere make the model very eazy to catch up on things (fingers, other models, fingers) and apart from a really bad mould line or two (right through the detail on the right side of the cowling right through that design) the model cleaned up nice.

Now back to the squad....

What's even funnier then the challenge being over is that I have finished the shadow spectors and started and finished the reapers in 2 days! Only 10 avengers to go!!!!

Based upon what you have done (and how they look), you have NOT failed. You just missed that particular deadline -- a deadline that is arbitrary for those of us not going to Adepticon (or able/wanting to win the prize).

PAINT ON!!
All of my armies and current projects.

OK, the avengers are almost done!!!!!

I am currently playing in a 1,500 pt tournament with a chopped down version of my 2,250 list..... and doing very poorly..... started loading up the car, noticed a flat, discovered that my Mondeo's spare type is for emergencies only, so I changed it, went to a type place, had to buy a new bloody tyre, arrived very late, missed the first game and lost the next 2 games (one to a hoard guard list and the other to a drago wing), playing again tomorrow.

I will be finishing off the avengers tonight, and have desided to give myself a major tast for the monday and tuesday, as I am currently on holidays, I am going to see if I can construct and paint my Revent titan..... big task I know. I will start washing tomorrow night! :mrgreen:

So, I beat the new sisters and got raped by a Mc fiston!!

But won the raffle, and I don't know my final place (right down the bottom I would expect).

Last night I washed and cleaned up the titan.

This morning, construction!

Constructed and undercoated!

Off to the movies and then painting after the undercoat has set.

All base coats are done!

I am thinking about bringing the titan with me to paint at night, maybe even get it finished to use...

Transport is a problem, but I will look into it in the morning before I head to the air port in Sydney.

The army is packed, bags are packed, I have bought a new camera and am now ready to go!

See you all soon! :mrgreen:
