Painting Points: Last Day Of January 2010

Well today is the last day of January and I think this month is most I have ever painted, at least it felt like it.  Here is a recap of what was accomplished for the month.

Warhammer Fantasy
2x Dark Elves Reaper Bolt Throwers (8)
10x Wood Elves Glade Guard (10)
3x Wood Elves Tree Kin (6)
10x Dark Elves Harpies (10)
10x Dark Elves Dark Riders (20)
1x Dark Elves War Hydra (5)
2x Dark Elves War Hydra Beastmasters (2)

Warhammer 40,000
24x Imperial Guard Special Weapon Infantry (4 Squads) (no pics) (24)
1x Imperial Guard Hellhound (10)
4x Imperial Guard Chimera's (40)

Total Painting Points for the month: 135


I guess now it's onto February.
My goals for February will be to finish the final unit of Wood Elves Glade Guard for my son, and continue working on the rest of the Infantry for my Imperial Guard.  With going to Arizona for 10 days (leaving on the 12th) to drop off one of cars and attend "Gathering in the Desert", I'm not sure how much painting will actually get done this month.  That is one of the reasons I really stepped it up for January.  I can say that I am now all painted for "AdeptiCon".

W40K: IG Chimera's (x4)

Here are the finished pics of the 4 Imperial Guard Chimera's that I worked on yesterday.  Just like with the Hellhound, "Less is more".

W40K: IG Hellhound Part 2

One of my favorite architect's Ludwig Mies van der Rohe adopted the motto "Less is more", I decided to do the same for my Imperial Guard vehicles.  Just a little basecoat, and let the dip do the rest.  Here are some pics of the process from Base Coat - Matte Coat of my Hellhound.

W40K: Imperial Guard 1/30/2010

The four Chimera's and Hellhound are now complete for my AdeptiCon 1000 point Team Tournament list (pictures will be posted tomorrow once the "dip" dries.  We'll be play testing the list next weekend and hopefully the list will do alright.  Seeing how I already packed/boxed all my other W40K items, I really do not have much room to make any changes.

Here are my updated progress charts for my Imperial Guard army:

WFB: Dark Elves War Hydra (Beastmasters)

As promised, here are the Beastmasters to go along with their Hydra.  I believe I am done painting Dark Elves now until the move to Arizona.  I have left 2 units of 20 Warriors FC Spear/Shield and 1 unit of Black Guard.  For the time being I am playing with these unpainted.  Once I finish another unit of Glade Guard for my son and get my Imperial Guard vehicles done for AdeptiCon I may start on some of the Warriors mentioned above.  We'll see....  IG first!

WFB: Dark Elves War Hydra

While waiting yesterday for my primer to arrive for my Imperial Guard, I decide to paint up my War Hydra to pass along the time.  I do not need this model for AdeptiCon, but I do for my 2250 point list so I figure I might as well get her done.  I was able to paint/dip/base all in one day.  This morning the matte spray was applied, I did not want to take any chances and I was giving the dip more time to fully dry.  I am very pleased the way she came out.  Up next I'll do the Beastmasters for the Hydra so I can call this unit complete.  Then all that is left for the Dark Elves will be the three large block units.

WFB: Dark Elves Dark Riders

This is a historic post for me, #14 for the month.  14 posts is the most I have blogged in one month since I started 'The Old West Chronicle'.

Anyways, this past Sunday seeing I had no more IG could paint, I decided to continue on with the Dark Elves.  I needed one unit of Dark Riders to complete to finish up my list for the AdeptiCon Fantasy Team Tournament.  I decided to paint up both units that I have and will need for my 2250 point list.  I finished up the bases last night and applied the matte coat this morning.  Here are some pics of one of these units.

W40K: Imperial Guard 1/22/2010

Finished up my fourth and final Special Weapons Squad last night for the IG (the last of my models that were already primed).  I ordered my "Desert Yellow" primer from The War Store today, so hopefully I'll have a lot more updates for my Imperial Guard next week.

W40K: Imperial Guard 1/20/2010

A friend of mine once made a graphic like the one below for his 'Sons of Sek' army he built for the 2008 Las Vegas GT. I really liked the idea, so I'm "borrowing" it to keep track of my Imperial Guard army. Once I finish a unit or vehicle I'll update the below graphic. Keep in mind, I have finished a few models that are not shown below that are needed for AdeptiCon. So I really did paint more than what is shown.

Painting Points: How They Work

First off I would like to thank Lone Pilgrim and Equinox for the idea of Painting Points.

The basics of the system are that a participant earns points for each model painted. The number of points earned depends on the size of the model.  Quite a few bloggers are also using the following system.  Here is a breakdown of the chart that I am using.


Re-basing = .25 point
Infantry = 1 point
Large Infantry / Cavalry / Bikes / Light Warjacks = 2 points
Monster / Walker / Heavy Warjacks = 5 points
Large Monster / Vehicle / Extreme Warjacks = 10 points
Superheavy Vehicle = 20 points
(updated from original post)

Using the Painting Points system for 2010 has really kept me motivated to paint.  Hopefully I'll be keeping it up.

W40K: Tyranids 1750/2000 Lists


With the release of the new Tyranids Codex and plastic models last weekend, it got me to thinking on what I want to do next after my Imperial Guard. I really do like the look of some of the new models and I think with the "TAP" method of painting I can get them done rather quickly.

I probably will not start buying any of the models till I finish my relocation back to Arizona (everything is already packed Warhammer related besides AdeptiCon armies) unless during my visit back to Arizona next month I pick up a few models and leave them at my parents (you know I'll probably end up doing that!)

Having never played Tyranids before, I searched DakkaDakka to get some ideas on army lists. While perusing through some of the lists, I came across a fellow named Mercer across the "pond" who runs his own blog Imperius Dominatus and asked him for some advice.

Mercer replied back to me with a great starting point for a 2000 point Tyranid list along with some tactics that you can read about here. I made just a few changes to his original list and also removed some units to make a 1750 point list. Most of the games I play are 1500/1750 points, but I do like to have enough models to be able to play up to at least 2000 points. I still need to work on removing a few items for 1500 points, but here are my lists for 1750 and 2000 points.

Started working on my Dark Elf Harpies yesterday and I was able to finish them up today. Just one unit of Dark Riders to finish and my 1000 point AdeptiCon force will be all painted.

The rest of my 2250 point army will have to wait to get painted till after we move back to Arizona, unless everything I need for AdeptiCon gets done rather quickly. All I have left for my 2250 point list would be; 2 Units of 20 Warriors Spear/Shields, 1 Unit of 20 Black Guard, and 1 Hydra.

WFB: Wood Elves Treekin

This past Christmas my son received a unit of 3 Treekin for his Wood Elves army. Usually it takes me about the whole year to paint up one of his Christmas presents. Well this year, we decided to get them done right away. I assembled the models for him and also primed them black for him. I had my son apply the base coat of Bestial Brown and I followed up with the drybrushing, highlights and dip. Here are the results.

W40K: IG Hellhound Part 1

This past Sunday morning for some unknown reason I woke up around 3:00 AM. I could not fall back asleep so I said to myself might as well start to build my Hellhound. The night before I had swung by the GW Battle Bunker and picked up the new plastic kit. Once again, kudo's to GW with their new kits. The tank assembled with no problems at all. One thing I noticed while assembling the tracks was that they were not numbered like they are for the Leman Russ. This was not a problem since the track assembling has grooves for where the tracks lay in.


It took me about 3 hours to complete the model, that includes my smoke and coffee breaks. I went to go and prime the tank afterwards, and I was completely out of my Desert Yellow spray. Oh well, it will have to wait till next payday and I'll place an order with The Warstore.

Hellhound
I ended up using magnets for both of the weapon locations. The turret weapons came out really nice and you will not notice any difference. The hull weapon kind of sticks out a bit. I may need to use some plastic card and create a little housing around each of the weapons. Since there are three different variants of the Hellhound, the magnets will make it easier to swap them around.
