Hello everyone! It's been a while!
Join me as I will try (in vain?) to paint a Baal Predator and a Stormraven in 2 days!
It's been half a year since I've painted anything and I'm planning to paint them in a high standard (I had a plog that I must resurrect eventually) so these days are going to be fun, fun, fun!
Pics when I get home!

This I would very much like to see!

I really hope you get it done, time is beyond tight! C'mon, go to berserk mode! :D

Aaaand after a really full day at the office I faltered... I thought it would be impossible... And it might really be...
But screw logic, eating and sleeping! We have a vow to complete and our chapter's honour is at stake!

What they should look like in roughly 40 hours...

I have never attempted something like this before, it will be fun :(

So quick question to anybody who sees this and answers, I was generally playing a mobile list with baal predators, las-predators, a vindicator and some razorbacks. If I added the stormraven to that list what loadout should I choose?? Any suggestions are good, it's just that I like to glue things on and I have no idea what's good for it!! :lol:

I'll start with the pred to give time for any answers!!

There we go!!

EDIT: This has gotten even more fun now that I've realised that I have forgotten my tank brush back home :P

EDIT2: 01:52: Aaand finished basecoating :/ I realised that I also forgot my spray can and had to do it by brush :( Also identified major possible problem as I only have half a pot of scorched brown left.. I'll cross that bridge when I have to :/

Hopefully tomorrow will be more productive :P

Looks good Poukis! If they look anything like your completed Baal it'll be a jaw dropping success! Very impressive stuff - keep at it!

Gaaah, I give up! (for today?)
I finished the pilot and gunner plus some tiles, plus some red in general, but I'm just too tired :P I think that I'm getting old ;)
It's not too hard though, since it will be mainly red, it doesn't have too much detail.
Aaanyhow, I'll try to do it on the following days but I'm really doubtful because I don't have any time at all :)
But it feels so close... I might MAKE time :ermm:

That was the look I was going for for when I make my vehicles. I'm glad I got to see what they'll look like someday. Again awesome work Poukis!

Don't tell me you're sleeping, or working, or living a life!!! You are on automatic pilot until Saturday now. Just grab that brush and keep walking! :P

Phew, ill say that the vow is complete:-P even if the highlight level dropped massively in the end and it still has a couple hours of work on details, its perfectly playable and quite nice:-P
Thanks to everybody for the support:-D I dont post here often due to the work (i actually dont paint that often anymore) but it was nice to feel part of the team:-D
@legion: thanks, nice to know I've helped:-P

I'll be updating my dead plog sometime soon so keep tuned:-P

Cheers,
Alex
