10:44 am: Warhammer 40K project
I haven't posted anything in a looong time. So I thought I would start up again, posting about a Warhammer 40,000 project I and some friends are doing.

I know a lot of people who really like Warhammer 40K, but most of us, for one reason or another, do not actually have a painted army. My brother decided that what we needed was incentive, so he came up with a project. Over the next 3 months, we would each commit to painting a certain amount of models each month, and at the end we would all have about 500 points worth of models. At the end of each month, we will meet up to show off our stuff and have a prize draw among the people who have finished their models for the month. And probably point and laugh at any who have not...

So now I am going to use my journal to chronicle my progress. It is also my plan to get a photobucket acount or similar so I can post photos of my models when they are finished.

The army I chose to paint are the Dark Eldar - the new models are just so pointy and pretty, how could I resist? I have also chosen my paint scheme and gotten started on some Wyches, the models I have to finish by the end of July. And I have started to curse myself for choosing a paint scheme that involves edge highlighting... On the other hand, I think they will look good when they are finished.

That's it for now, but I hope to return soon with pictures, and perhaps a new "project 40K" icon!

Necrons do indeed rule, but I also like the new Dark Eldar models. And since I already have about 1000 points of painted Necrons, and clearly don't need extra incentive to get them done, I thought it would be cool to start a new army with everyone else. :)

I'm trying to paint my Fantasy army at the second. I once had a fully painted Dwarf army but now I have new stuff I need to paint!
