Halfway through! I of course have details planned, but the basics are looking good. I wanted to make sure I did some regular rank and file first, it's been a while since i have used the All Wash paint style.

Im really liking the fur done on the models but the blues seems to have heavily pooled in some areas and not others. It looks good none the less but I feel it might have taken away from the model.

Yeah there are heavily pooled parts, but these were mainly practice. I'll fix em ;)

So I really would like to build some MORE terrain this month, and went to unearth some. Unfortunately it appears the contractors buried it even more, so I settled on starting to paint some stuff I already had. This will also give me an excuse to use the airbrush I bought...years ago, and try out the paint box I just built. I'll take a pic of the box later, I just realized I forgot. I also have some waaaaaay overdue Killa Kanz and a Deffdread to finish, which I found and set aside recently.

So last night when I finished work at 10:30 PM, I went ahead and started on some metals for the terrain. The Kanz I had already donethe rust and metal effects, now I need to get some details done.

So there, I got some progress done! Now I'm off to the hobby shop to buy a pipe cutter ;)

I've got another night or two of painting these up and I'm done with them all. I'm also going to try and finish up 3 Kanz and a Deffdread.

I have a problem concentrating it seems, and get tons of fun army ideas as well as over the top conversions... and lately it just hasn't been cohesive to a single army. I've been spreading myself out, and starting all these different projects and none of them get done. So for 40K, my concentration is going back to Orks.

For June, I'm going to really push myself aka not sleep. I've had an idea for this particular army for a long time. So for May, I'm going to complete about 500-600 points. Per my usual, even though I can paint I'm going to concentrate more on making the conversions (they are going to require quite a bit of work) and speed paint them. I'm thinking about doing a different approach, build a model in a night, and then the next night paint it. Usually I just build like crazy and assembly line paint, but i run out of steam a bit that way.

I think that is a good plan. :) I find that painting a big group/large monster, you go through a reverse bell curve of enthusiasm. You start totally jazzed, then in the middle you just want to slough off, and then at the end you know your close and they are starting to look great to so you get motivated again. Keeping the projects small will close that middle gap somewhat.

Alright, I've actually made some progress! In the second series of photos (the last 3) I have greenstuffed a strap on his shield arm and rebuilt his choppa into a rippa chainsword.

Just for fun, I took out the ol' iPhone and took a picture of every Ork model I have that is at least 95% built. I have a long way to go on painting. So, show off your armies so far!

It kinda made me sad when I took a look at what I have, and how much I've traded off. I coulda filled another table or more easily. The nice part is, I have tons more stuff to build and half finished projects to finish!

This just blew my mind. That is a LOT of plastic.
