Thanks guys! I've started rushing a bit more otherwise I don't think I would get done. I'm planning on adding some wheathering to the metal and some additional highlighting someday. Here's my completed October goal

Here are my final two entries, twenty five hormagaunts and Ten termagants. It feels awesome being done. There's no way I would have finished this so quickly if not for the deadlines set by the challenge. I had to take a few shortcuts on the bases because I started running out of Snakebite Leather paint. I had Balor Brown which, according to GW, is supposed to be the new version but the colors don't match at all. I'll need to investigate other options like a different GW paint or maybe switch to Vallejo. Thanks to everyone who has followed the project, its been a great motivation. Sorry the pictures have been so overexposed, I'll be investing in a photo booth soon. I'll also try and get a full army shot tonight

Yaaaay!! :D


I hate that "matching color" nonsense. If it doesn't match, don't try to say that it does. People who paint... that's kind of our thing... colors. We're GONNA notice. I busted myself painting about 3000 pts of Grey Knights with accents in this Shining Gold and went to replace the pot with what was then the current Shining Gold and they are nothing alike. Maybe in as much as they are both metallic, but other than that... just not even close to one another.
