    A little over halfway there, but I think I'm more than halfway done!

    Slowly working on the details of my Terradons. Actually playing the game has slowed down my painting progress a bit.
    ...and so has Total War Warhammer...

    Hey fellas!
    That is a great idea.
    My goals for this month:
    - complete my first Lizard model ever (a cold one rider). Cold one is almost done, there's the rider and base to take care of.
    - complete one more form my waiting list: either a Poxwalker, a Fenrisian wolf, or a Blood bowl goblin.

    10 days left… :eek:

    Dang this month flew by! I just started basing my carnosaur today, I have been sidetracked by many other projects :sorry::D

    That being said I really liked @little-myth 's idea of tracking your stuff on a paint log (link)

    Are we going to reset in March?

    This has been great motivation and, whilst I have done less than I would have liked, It has spurred me on. :)

    Yup!

    And for the cost of a bottle of paint you can save all the "sets" of colors you want. Makes it very easy to organize and get ready to paint in the evening

    I only got the free version (yet) but I see its potential.
    But I am a pretty organized with my paints anyway, so I admit I haven't used it much.

    I was too. I used note cards and wrote down paint schemes like recipes. This is in the palm of my hand though.

    I always write my schemes down but I never have a scheme worked out when I start a model, I just paint and pick colours as I go, unless I'm copying a model which I do quite a lot.

    It is done. But boy did I work hard! :eek:

    I've painted my Balewind vortex, and I've FINALLY painted my 20 pink horrors, 20 Tzaangors, added in 10 Blue Horrors. Then proceeded to base all of those models + 6 Skyfires, 3 Enlightened, a Lord of Change, a Tzaangor shaman and a Gaunt summoner. Finished yesterday at 10PM, all ready for tomorrow's big tournament!

    Boy that was a tough, but fun, February :cool:

    Awesome, you are clearly more disciplined than me! I am hoping for a 'three quarters success' now :)

    I too don't use schemes. Just mix and match the general direction I was heading. it gives each model a unique vibe but it is also time consuming.
