Well, as usual i have left it to the last minute. I now have a week to get a 1500pt Imperial Guard army painted. I'm leaving for the carnage social on Friday the 1st september. That means i have exactly 7 days. The plan is to do an update at the end of each day, saying what i have done that day and include some piccies.

Heres the list i will be working to:

Command Squad led by Heroic Senior Officer w/ Power Weapon and Iron Discipline, Medic, Standard Bearer and 2 Plasmagunners. @122pts

Psyker, Honorifica Imperialis, Force Weapon @62pts

5 Stormtroopers, 2 Meltaguns and Deepstrike @75pts

5 Stormtroopers, 2 Meltaguns and Deepstrike @75pts

8 StormTroopers, 2 Plasmaguns, Veteran Sergeant w/ Power Weapon @11pts

Chimera, Turret Autocannon, Hull Heavy Bolter, Extra Armour and Trackguards @105pts

8 StormTroopers, 2 Plasmaguns, Veteran Sergeant w/ Power Weapon @11pts

Chimera, Turret Autocannon, Hull Heavy Bolter, Extra Armour and Trackguards @105pts

Infantry Platoon, Junior Officer w/ Power Fist and iron Discipline, Lascannon team @90pts

Infantry Squad, Missile Launcher, Plasmagun, Sharpshooters @95pts

Infantry Squad, Missile Launcher, Plasmagun, Sharpshooters @95pts

Psyker @12pts

Psyker @12pts

Sentinel, Lascannon, Armoured Crew Compartment @70pts

Leman Russ Exterminator, Hull Mounted Heavy Bolter, Sponson Heavy Bolters @135pts

Leman Russ Battle Tank, Hull Mounted Heavy Bolter, Sponson Heavy Bolters @155pts

Thats 1500 exactly.

The list is supposed to be fluffy aswell as effective. A strong stormtrooper regiment supported by an infantry platoon and tanks.

Well, off i go then. Wish me luck, and i'll post first update tonight.

how much have you painted so far? That seems like an awful lot of troops.

If i were you i'd start by just giving the pure basecoat first and then when you've finished the army you can maybe go back and add details to characters etc.

I'm guessing you have nothing else on this week btw.

Good luck.

25-08-2006, 11:26
So far i have the Command squad, 10 guardsmen and 10 stormtroopers done.

I have got nothing else this week, apart from painting of course.

25-08-2006, 11:35
Good luck Cookie!

That is an awful lot though - what sort of standard are you planning to do it to? Will it be 3 colours all over and a coat of brown wash?

25-08-2006, 11:43
To the standard of my other troops.

Basically a base colour and a highlight.


25-08-2006, 11:58
Not bad at all! Doing a whole army to that standard in a week is will be most impressive feat.

Good luck with this! It will be good see it all finished next friday :)

The standard of the paint job looks really good, do you think you'll be able to paint all that in a week! I know I couldnt paint my army in that time - Im not even brining my army to the social :)

Just bear in mind though if you can't get it all fully done, it will probably alot like Simon's :angel:

Good luck!

good luck and dont have a coronary!!!!

25-08-2006, 13:06
so far so good. keep up the painting. and good luck at carnage.

25-08-2006, 14:23
The thing with the army is that it looks good, not particulary if you look at every model. But as squads it looks really good and is just one highlight over a basecoat.

So far i have the green done on ten stormtroopers. The special weapons need doing, but i've run out of spray so a trip to GW is in order.

25-08-2006, 19:56
Well it's been a busy day. I've got the whole army assembled apart from the Chimera turrets and the army is undercoated, i have also got the stormtroopers green done.

So tommorow all should be full steam ahead.

27-08-2006, 09:23
Well Saturday, i got nothing done. I decided upon a shopping trip and all i came back with was two new CD's.

Sunday won't be too productive either as i have the Grandparents coming round at Luch time.

Not looking good...

Oh no ! 5 days and counting as well! Wish you the best of luck with finishing this :)

Damn these distractions, just found my old G-Con 45 and the original Time Crisis, and they both work on my PS2!!

Damn these distractions, just found my old G-Con 45 and the original Time Crisis, and they both work on my PS2!!

Damn! I didn't think they were compatible.

I'm gonna play Time Crisis all bank holiday long...until my eyes bleed :D

28-08-2006, 10:17
Looks like i'll just be doing basic colours for now, running out of time.

Btw i completed Time crisis, on both difficulties :D .

28-08-2006, 10:41
Less Time Crisis, more painting!

C'mon lad, get to it! It's 3 days since we got phot updates... :(

28-08-2006, 16:20
I'll get some photos tonight, and only 3 days until the deadline is up.

Was planning to paint Friday night at the hotel but that is now Beer and Bloodbowl night.

28-08-2006, 19:33
Some piccies for you, i would have highlighted the skin but have no elf flesh. That means i would have had to mix it or go to GW.

Anyway, here goes:

These psykers only took 2 hours, not my best work, but they'll be tided up after the social:


The command squad for th infantry platoon, basically done, apart from the white details, highlighting the black bits and the flesh of course:


and some close up shots:



28-08-2006, 19:48
Very nice so far, very close to my armies paint colors, hope you make it best of luck.

28-08-2006, 19:55
Just thought, i could have done the white details whilst doing the rocks on the bases. Idiot.

31-08-2006, 13:50
Nearly there, got the metal on the stormtroopers to do and their bases. The army isn't to the standard i hoped but i got it done. All i have to do Friday Morning is to stick the tracks on the tanks, or i might leave this to saturday morning, depending on time.

To Carnage!

31-08-2006, 14:05
Excellent work! I look forward to seeing them. I think the bases make up for the lack of highlighting and detailing on the models you've painted so far, they are very textured so they give the whole mini a sense of realism.

dave is the best

Well done!!!!!!

31-08-2006, 21:01
The bases will be flocked and have clumps of lichen attached. You'll see what i mean at the Social. I'm really looking forward to the event, should be great.
