1500 pts in a month - Day 15 - Almost completed the build!

Day 15  and I spent most of the evening prepping the last 10 man Jungle warriors kit that came today. Once i get them assembled and on a base tomorrow i will finally have the build complete! I also spent some and more time on the Deathwatch which are coming along nicely. The storm shields are really detailed and take time but still manage to be fun to paint. Sorry about the photo,  will hopefully have the tripod and light box set up soon so vast improvements on the way.

1500 pts in a month - Day 14 - Deathwatch getting some love

Day 14 is upon us, well pretty much gone actually but still! Today's hobby love was spent on the stalker bolter team, prepping the kasrkin flamers and also the catachan that arrived earlier on today. Managed to get most of the base coating down on the deathwatch and a good dettol soak and scrubbing for the special weapons squads.

1500 pts in a month - Day 12 and 13 - Final vehicle build

Sorry for the delay in any updates, I've not forgotten, what free time i have had has been spent on the project and family. I've had a bit of bad news and it turns out i won't be able to attend the tournament after all. My wife's operation has been moved to just before the date so i will have to try and attend another soon, family comes first!

Despite this i'm going to continue the challenge and aim to still complete it in the time frame!

1500 pts in a month - Day 11 - More paint!

 Day 11 already and i finally finished painting my first model. I took my time with this one to make sure i got the colour scheme how i wanted it and covered the details as best i could. Some slight touch ups to do but otherwise done!

1500 pts in a month - Day 10 - Finally some paint!

Day 10 and i finally got to get some paint on the first Deathwatch Kill team! I thought i would do one whole model while i figured out the paint scheme then would batch paint the next 4 to speed things up. It's not quite finished yet but i'm really enjoying painting the Mentor for the squad.

1500 pts in a month - Day 9 - A slow but essential day

Day 9 has arrived, after yesterdays storming progress today was not so good. My Vendetta did finally turn up and i even got a free pen for the wait!
