So as promised, I think bi-monthly I’ll be letting you know what I’ve painted, and what I’ve bought.
As of January 15th I’ve painted…
For 40k – 30 Kabalite Warriors, 5 Scourges and an Archon for my 3rd edition Dark Eldar army. I was particularly happy with the Archon.
For Void – the contents of the Syntha starter force. That’s 6 tactical androsynths, 6 assault androsynths, a hunter killer grav bike and Dr Omega. I went for simple solid paint jobs.
For Flintloque I painted eight Licantzrop Jaegers, they’re great characterful minis and take contrast paints really well. They’ve currently got a heavy coat of gloss which I’ll matt down when I find a varnish I can trust not to go cloudy.
For Deathzap I painted twelve Jendari Rangers. I was hoping to do more, a lot more but realised I had run out of tiddlywink bases.
Purchases so far:
A can of black spray paint £1.99.
A can of gloss varnish £4.99.
A pot of Agrax Earthshade £4.75.
A Talos Pain Engine (for the Dark Eldar) £32.50.
300 Tiddlywinks £8.17.
That’s £52.40 in total. Feels a bit steep, although puts me on track for roughly £100 a month and £1200 a year so less that I thought for the whole year, we’ll see.
As far as painted figures goes:
The Syntha Starter set is £40.
The Dark Eldar stuff is worth £97.50.
The Licantzrop Jaegers are £22.
I’m struggling to quantify the value of the Deathzap figures which to buy are less than a penny each, and I certainly don’t want to discourage myself from painting them so I’m counting each figure as 30p. So the Rangers are £3.60.
That’s £163.10 painted which is kind of nuts. Meaning I’m ahead £110.70. A good start to the year!
