Fantasy Assembly and Painting Plans

So you'll note I've played some games, but haven't put much up on the 'what I've been working on' lately.  Honestly it hasn't been much.  Mostly the collection and assembly of Fantasy filling in both armies.

Here you can see my assembled Bestigor with a Brown base coat.  I think that will work well as I want to do their armor as brass, so the brown will work for fur, and a good base for flesh and brass.

Here's a shot of the Beastmen army.

So I've picked up bits to fill out some more minotaurs.  It doesn't look like much, but that's basically 2500 points.
In addition I picked up bits to make more ungors.  I'm just sort heads.  Well I have some heads but I don't like them, so I'm trying to pick some up on ebay.

I also had to pick up 7 more sauri to make my Lizards go to 3k for Ard boyz.  I know I'm a fool for going, especially when I'm basically giving up a 40k 4 game tournament earlier in them month.  At least there I would have a chance to win a few games.  Ard boyz I'll just get stomped, but I want to learn the game and play other armies so I'll go and hope I don't get purple sunned to death every game. :p

So as for Fantasy painting here's my plan:

I'm going to paint these three guys.

Then I'm going to paint these 3 guys.

That will give me a good idea of what I want the armies to look like and work out some assembly line painting plans to get through these guys.  I'm definately dipping, but I'm going to have to do more detail on these than I did the BA so I know they'll both take longer.  Plus I don't have the winter break that I had in Dec so that means late night.

BUT, and a big BUT at that... I really want to push through my 1ksons.  Kublacon is two months away.  I think I'm going to make a serious push to get 1850 painted.  It might not be my first choice of lists, but hey... it isn't like I think they would kick ass anyway.

So I've got a game plan and I'll do some practice games.  I'm guessing by the time Kubla comes around I'll be pretty close, but might have decided my practice games gave me enough of a drubbing to have some sense to take my orks.  Time will tell.
