This presents a huge problem for me preparing for the tourney as most of my bugs aren't painted. The codex is rumored to be released on January 11, 2014. The Darkstar GT is March 8-9, 2014. That gives me exactly eight weeks from codex release until the tournament. I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with the best system to set me up to succeed in getting this army completed in time.
My army must be painted to a three color minimum but other things like basing, conversions etc., are used to get you a painting score. With that in mind things like bases and display boards are unfortunately going to be done if I get everything else done in time. I know I don't have the skill level to compete for "Best Painted" at this point anyways. It's all about getting an army painted, on the table, and getting that first tourney experience under my belt.
|It can be overwhelming when you have a multitude of models to paint.|
On my painting table right now are roughly 25 hormagaunts, 30 termagants, and 20 gargoyles. I have a month until the codex comes out, I am going to see if I can hero them all done by then! I will provide some updates in the coming weeks to show everyone my progress.
As always, feel free to post comments below, add suggestions or generally cheer me on as I try to do this. With two little kids here at home it's sometimes a struggle to get any time to paint, much less time to paint an entire army. Thanks for tuning in, much more to come!
