It's been an odd start to the year. Usually January is a bit of a slow burn, takes a while to get going after the fortnight of holiday induced sloth. But this year I have been painting like a madman! Also been seriously ill and working from home, could the two have a correlation...
First off Epic:
So most of the army was done in 2014, but I smashed out the last 15ish figures in 2015 to get it over the line. I then picked up a few more trades to get my hands on some more aspects, wraithguard and jetbikes because I wanted to be able to use the army as forces other than Biel-Tan so Saim-haan and Iyanden were the obviously 'different' lists to aim for.
Then with the Epic army done and basing in the glory of another army completed I turned my attention to the next upcoming WFB tournament. Back in October I wrote a list I thought would be fun to play for this, it's also potentially a bit nasty but hopefully not too awful (we shall see). I had to paint 22 archers for this, a mage and I built & painted the second phoenix too, it's a conversion using the IoB griffon and the spare parts from the phoenix box for the one I'd already built. They're intended for a flame phoenix but the real difference is paintjob so did nicely for giving me a 2 for 1 special with a model which would otherwise never make it into my army!
As it turns out the event is going to be a total filth fest so even what I consider 'nasty' is likely to be sub optimal. But it's one I'm really going to for the social.
[EDIT] Update to the end of January and I got to 50 models painted.
High Elves - 23 (1 mage and 22 archers)
Epic Eldar - 20 (assorted inf & tanks)
Malifaux - Levi, Rusty, Waif & Des engine), Tannen & Illuminated
Warmachine - Boomhowler Troll
