I am a notoriously slow painter. This rep has not been helped by my six-month-long possession of the figures for JY's Rackham boardgame (which we've still not played). So when, today, JY bet me his house that I wouldn't finish painting the Raptors, Vipers, Raiders and Heavy Raiders from the BSG boardgame - and bearing in mind I hadn't even undercoated them at this stage - I took him up on it.
I guess you owe me your house now JY...
In other news, I also gave the three Chimeras a bit of TLC, bringing them (almost) to the stage where I can paint them. I need to liberally coat them in stowage and a bit of camo netting to cover up some bits where the previous owner's been a bit happy with the glue, and the third one needs its turret gun - but I'm hoping to pick one up tomorrow from the Leamington Games Club, so that's not worrying me too much.
I'll supply pictures of those tomorrow. I also finally undercoated my lone Techpriest Engineseer in preparation for the new Codex (I'm probably going to put him in with the Darendarans, as they have a preponderance of vehicles), and undercoated the Company Command Squad and the rest of the Mortar Squad too. I'll be starting the Company Command Squad tomorrow on my lunchbreak.
