After a bit of thumb twiddling, just thumbs I swear; I came up with my Stormvermin test scheme. The unit is comprised of a variety of sculpts so I decided to finish all I had of each at once. Here are some close ups:
The classic mace bearers
These are the best of the lot;
I'm happy with how they've turned out. They were speed painted, I just wanted them done.
I read some blog entries this morning on Realms of Chaos 80's, Oldhammer on a Budget and The Black Hole, and Eldritch Epistles which describes their endeavour to paint 1,000 point armies for BOYL next year under the guise of a Tale of Four Gamers Challenge, which is one of my favourite WD articles of all time (the original 90's endeavour, not the copycat articles years later), I've got the issues around somewhere so I'll give a good look round.
I think it would be great fun to do the same for the American Oldhammer in the NEW World event next year provided there is one, God I hope there is one.
I'll post more on some ideas I've got in the coming weeks but essentially it would involve 4, perhaps more players all painting 100 points a month culminating in a painted army of 1000 points. 2 players would be of good alignment and two of evil. Anyway I'm getting ahead of myself.
The challenge will start October 1st ending August 1st well in time for OITNW.
This gives anyone interested a chance to finish off any smaller projects they wish to have finished (my skaven 4,500pts for example, oh I think it just moved thinking about it.) On a side note Paul Sawyer's beastmen have always been an inspiration of mine, I'll be sure to post some pictures from the appropriate issues in future.
That's all for now please comment and let me know what you think of the colour scheme and thanks for stopping by.
