Don't feel bad skarnir, I'm in the same boat... all I've done is Boltgun Metal on the trukk bed and I haven't lifted a knife to a single boy for the build threat. I am doomed to failure this month. Went and took on two projects for family and that has taken all my hobby time. Priorities are what they are.

 

Crappy pic or no, those tanks look awesome, Garr. 'grats on bein' green. :thumbs

I'm almost finished. The 1/160 firefighters are done and need to be added to the club module, although they should have been "build and paint." I am mostly done the n-scale locomotive, but it does need some additional detailing in the form of washes and a satin coat to even out the shine a bit.

 

The Blood Bowl stuff will be assembled during the last week of April... I hope...

Finished painting the flakka dakka tukk bed today. That makes me one half finished with my threat with six days left in the month... yeah, barring a miracle I'm not gonna make it. I will sling a picture up later when I get a chance to snap one.

Well, family and events took out a huge chunk of time I might have otherwise been painting. And I over-estimated how long it takes me to paint a unit of boyz. Or rather, I learn more and spend more time on even the humblest boy because I know very well once I'm finished I'm not going to come back to them until I have enough dakka in my army.

 

I'm not going to make my April threat with realistically only two more free days for me to paint. But I can at least finish this unit of tankbustas I've almost finished

Well, as of last night I am officially green. Everything was completed for the train show last weekend, and I assembled the Blood Bowl miniatures over this week. The timing is good, as I now have a commissioned piece of an HO-scale Grain Elevator complex that will require some conversion work in the building of it. I am hoping to get started on that today, but it will be my primary threat for May...

Well I'm out of time, so my threat is incomplete. I did finish those tankbustas though (they're in my main thread) so my total finished model count is 40 out of roughly 70. Painted to my highest standard yet and with new techniques. So that gives me an idea on what to aim for next time!

 

This has been pretty useful! Certainly helped get me out of bed on days I might have otherwise had a lie in and otherwise find time. And a better idea on how long it actually takes me to paint models.

Color me green!  I started a new job, and had to paint up some Panzees earlier in the month for a game so time was running short.

 

Paint 6 Raptors - Done.

 

Bonus threat: Paint 1 Farseer, 10 Guardians, 6 Howling Banshees, 1 D-Cannon with 2 crew, 1 Fire Prism. - Done.

I have officially gone down in flames although there was a near miracle... I got some of the boyz into the bed of the trukk and then I got hammered with other obligations and disasters, so I didn't get to finish. I will likely finish up tomorrow. Pic of what I got painted is finally up in the MG.

i started the month well and got the Lootas and Burnas done so they are green. I then took a short break before finishing off the Stormboyz. I started back to them too little too late yesterday but havent even got them all base coated yet. I have remodelled some of them to have them flying though, and they are on bigger more stable bases. I'll have to finish them in May's challenge
