I am almost there, so close I can taste it. Four models are left on my paint list for the army, 3 of the 4 are in progress on the paint desk. This is all in the nick of time as I am starting to flare out, I am right at the cusp of the burn out. Army sized projects do this to me, it is inevitable, I just have to keep pushing and it will be finished. I have promised myself work on a fun small single model project as soon as I push through the army and I CAN’T WAIT!
I also just plopped down my entry fee into the DorkaMorka event in October, this looks like it is going to be a blast and will be a great incentive to keep pushing on the army. The event is October 19th, so by then I have to finish everything but the hell drake, (the land raider, soul grinder, blood thirster and display board). I started on the grinder this week and I am flying through him so with any luck I can be done with him before the weekend, and punch out the raider over the weekend. That would just leave the thirster, display board, and something for the golden squig. I think it is very very doable.
I have meant to do this post for awhile but I keep holding it off so I can fit one more completed unit in the post. Then the normal life things pop up. With the project on the downhill slide it seemed like this is a great time to post progress.
So here we go on to the pictures.
First up is the prince. I do not have one included in my list this guy is just for a lucky roll on the boon table. I challenged myself as far as speed painting goes with this guy, I wanted to see if I could knock out a prince in one hour, and with an airbrush I was able to punch this guys out in one lunch break. That doesn’t include the basing, but from primer to completed paint was just at 1 hour for this guy.
On to the core of the army. Here are some shots of the berzerkers and the terminators. I am somewhat disappointed with how the terminators came out, they still need to tufts for their bases, but they just didn’t come out as nice as the berzerkers did, I am not sure if that is due to the aged models, or just the fatigue I am feeling on the army. Either way done is done and that beats unpainted, from the tabletop they look fine.
And now their leader Kharn the betrayer. This guys is a beat stick, if he survives combat to get to swing he will wreck face. This conversion turned out solid, I like it better than the current gw model, I am sure in the future they will end up recutting kharn, but until then I think this captures him just fine.
Finally we have the juggernauts that I am using as my hounds of khorne.
