August's Painting in Review



I've had a very productive month in painting. Most of my IG army was painted in this month, and I still have a lot to go. I now have a Demolisher kit that requires painting, and soon an ebay auction will arrive. It will contain 48 catachans, that I plan on using as a 2nd infantry platoon. I have already started constructing the command squad for this platoon. Additionally, I will need to paint the remaining special characters I did not get to this month, namely Creed and Marbo. I also am trying to get some regimental advisers ready for paint, so I still have plenty of opportunity to add to my points total in the coming months.

For this month, however, I accomplished much. Here's the list as it stands, pulled from my main page:

This month: (August)
1 Regimental Standard Bearer, 1 Armored Sentinel, 3 Chimera Transports, 2 Veteran Squads, 3 Flame Throwers, 2 Voxcasters, 1 Medic, 4 Snipers, 3 Mortar Teams (counts as 2 infantry), 1 Casualty Marker, 1 Terminator Chaplain, Colonel Straken
TOTAL: 77 Point(s) thus far

Does a Temple of Skulls count? No? Alright fine...

Ok, so 30 points in vehicles, 5 points in dreadnoughts/warwalkers, 6 points in ICs (I counted the standard bearer as an IC, due to the intricacy of the standard), and 37 infantry models of various kinds. Let's double check the math... oops I guess the standard bearer should be counted as just an infantry model. That equals out to 77 points, as written before... still a monumental achievement for me! I thought last month's total of 56 points would be hard to beat, but I really put my nose to the grindstone due to the 2 tournaments I attended this month. For anybody wanting motivation, put your armies in events that judge painting. It really made me stick it out.

Well, a new month starts tomorrow! Let's see how much I can fit into a month!

Until next time,
