With the 40K Malaysia "Legends" Hobby Challenge just around the corner, I thought I'd fall back to a practice I started when I began "The Unclean". Starting Monday, I will be on an official "Hobby Rush" to paint my Iyanden Eldar for this hobby challenge. Just like before with my Chaos Space Marine force, I'll keep the following chart constantly updated as I progress:
In case you didn't follow my first Hobby Rush, this chart shows me (and anyone else who cares to follow along) where I'm at with my project. It's a motivational tool, basically. It helped me stay on schedule last time, and was a real motivator when I was able to color in boxes.
Off to the right of each entry, you'll see a box or series of boxes. Each box represents a model. So, the 11 boxes off to the right of the Guardians squad represents the 10 Eldar Guardians and the Grav Platform, for instance. As I progress with the models, I color in the boxes based on what stage they are at. The colors are:
White (No Fill)- No progress whatsoever has been made with this model.
Yellow- The model has been Primed White and/or Assembled.
Green- The model is fully painted and ready for battle.
If you recall last time, I also had orange in my chart. The orange represented models that were "dipped". Given the lengthy drying times involved with dipped models, it was a helpful note from a planning perspective to know what was dipped and what wasn't. Since this army is definitely not using "The Dip", this color isn't need for this particular Hobby Rush.
The competition I'm in officially starts this Monday. If you enjoy my work, by all means be sure to visit the competition thread and cast your vote for me! :)
