The 15 day painting challenge

Recently, a buddy of mine came up with an idea to help with the backlog trap of painting, that all hobbyists fall into eventually.
We have these massive amounts of untouched pewter, resin and plastic figs lying around. We bought most of these figs with the intention of painting them.... Sometimes, especially in may case it seems, I dont even get them assembled and out of the box anymore! Its a terrible, terrible problem! Those figures deserve paint by god! To that end, the 15 day challenge was born. 15 days straight, painting for at least an hour every night!
Currently  we are sitting on day 3 and I have not yet faltered. We'll see how that sounds come day 10 or so.

So, stay tuned for many, many WIP's over the next two weeks. I will try to keep it updated every couple of days.

Dark Age and Wild West Exodus have been the focus of the first days. I have however, got some Rackham figs on the docket, and you should see them very soon!

You'll have to excuse the awful pics. They will be taken while painting. Cant waste time setting up a proper shoot now can we!?

 Follow everyone's progress over on the Geek Garage forum thread! Or better yet, join the site and jump in with us!

On the bench

Lately it seems I have started a lot of projects but really dont have anything finished to show as of yet. So, I thought an "on the bench" post was in order!

It seems with the release of the all new card decks for Dark Age, my interest in the game has been rekindled. I have gotten a few games in and started work on the figs again. I really, really love painting these figures but couldn't get much oomph to do so when the game was not drawing my attention.

Here is what I have been working on.

Now, with all of this Dark Age craziness abound, Wild West Exodus was not to be forgotten.
Just some basecoats and washes on this guy for now. I plan to ramp up on him over the coming days.

Last but definitely not least, is my Yaogat strike force leader for my Morat aggression sectorial army.

I always have one Infinity fig in the works. Only one though, because if I were to try and assembly line paint these tiny, detailed little buggers, my eyes might just melt right out of my skull.

Thanks for taking a look! Let me know what you think or what changes you might add to these!
