The dog days of summer?

I'm back from vacation!  But I barely managed to get any thing done while I was away...

So here I am, the Dog Days of Summer! Crunch time.

We leave for Nova in 13 days.  That is the time I have left to finish my army.  But four of those days are weekend days, and three more of them Jack will be home because Daycare is closed.  That leaves me with 6 quality days to work including today.

I did manage to get home at a decent time yesterday and pumped out this priest...


Of course he needs a lot more work but the bulk of it is done.  

Of the 16 assault marines I still have to paint, work is mostly done of four of them.  I think I can bust them out though in 5 days.  That is my mission for next week.  Today? The Sanguinor.  I primed him last night and he is waiting my NMM attempt!  I will take pics of the stages for you here.

Oh and some where in there I have to build my display board and base all my models... Gulp!  

In Nova news, I believe there are about a dozen spots left in the big tournament.  It is not too late to get one! I would love to see some of you and have a beer.  Oh and I think I have an opponent for The Whiskey Challenge!  More on that next time.

Jawa, I'm curious how much time you plan to allocate per model? 3 hours?

I am really excited to see the results of your non metal-metal session on the Sanguinor. Post those pics!

I am going to try to batch paint the assault marines. I can get done 5 in two days. So over 5 days I should be able to do 12+. That will leave me with a few odd hours to touch every thing up. :) And I just finished the first basecoat of Sanguinor. Pics soon!

^Agent9 said...

because thats just plain mean lol, what 3x Raiders, mephy and sangy... 3x assault squads, 3x sang priests...something shooty?

I'm actually not packing a super competitive list. I decided to go more with models I like and look good. Scouts, meph, sang, 2 assault squads, raider, termies priests, chaplain. No long range to speak of but plenty of assault punch! I won't be a contender at Nova, but thats ok. :)

I think that for as you say "he needs a lot more work" he's pretty freaking awesome. You did a fantastic job painting this model and I I've the metallic paints. Keep it up.
