This painting challenge is set up to have us complete one part of the painting process across the four weeks of February. I really like this idea because it challenges me at my weakest point - painting troop models. I love painting characters and centerpieces, but my will to paint troops and squads is severely lacking. If I want to exceed my painting total of 42 models in 2016, this is a positive step!
Here is #Squadary's plan:
Assembly: 1st - 7th
Basic painting: 8th - 14th
Clean up and details: 15th - 21st
Basing: 22nd - 28th
Here is my goal:
I was going to start with Singing Spears that I have already assembled and basecoated from a previous article here on how to improve their look from their old kits. After reading the goals for #Squadary, I decided to start with something on sprue to work though that pile on my shelf.
These will be painted in Iyanden colors.
|1 squad of Iron Warriors (Mk III - Prospero)|
I bought this set off eBay after seeing a really neat tutorial for Iron Warriors on The Golden D6 magazine. I wanted to make a squad of them to perhaps use in Kill Team.
Should look really great and be my first foray into CSM.
Piece of cake, right? I hope so! 15 of these guys will make up about 35% of my total output from 2016. I will also try to complete some of my individual models during this time.
Take a look at Deadpool from Knight Miniatures coming along.
|I will straighten out those weapons, I promise!|
I'm prepping a painting tutorial for him, and I will even have some fun 40k assassin rules to play with him.
Anyway, looking forward to it!
