What's on my palette?

Bless me #WarHamFam for I have sinned, it's been 2 months since my last confession! But I knew what was going to keep me busy through #DreadTober and #ArmiesOnParade so I didn't really need to structure what came next.

Although I didn't finish everything I would have liked for AoP - ALL the Ravenwing and the Gellerpox Infected, I am really proud of what I did get done. Almost everything I eventually committed to I achieved. Just some finishing touches on a container and then I quickly realised the 3 Black Knights and all 3 bikers were unachievable. Kept 1 biker going and put the other 5 on hold. They were supposed to be next on my list, but nah! I had a few nights off and did not fancy getting back on that merry-go-round. Luckily I have another long-avoided ride - my Adeptus Titanicus Titans. I had wanted to do them for DreadTober but they got pushed out, as they have been many times before. But, I actually have started to put some paint on them.

I also have the Munitorum Containers, I'm awaiting some decals but they will also be finished after the Titans. Concurrently I have my lone Tyranid Zoanthrope and he is having some basecoats applied. When that's complete I'll do some basecoats on my Adeptus Titanicus Cerastus Lancer and also start the Ravenwing. I predict this should get me through December and possibly January.

THEN... Haemotrope reactor, which may mean my Imperial Pomethium Relay Pipes get done at the same time, but they're not primed which might be a problem as we go into the Winter. This will be my painting project but I have plans to build - I will finally get my remaining Deathwing all built up. The I'm going to prep my original Land Raider Proteus and my Crayola Whirlwind. I want everything ready for painting. If all that comes to pass I will have completed ALL my priority items from my TO DO List! I am on it this season. If I get though all that I may finish my Orc Blood Bowl team...

I'm already chuffed at my progress this Hobby Season - the Death Guard and Ravenwing are enough to make me feel content but I know that means I will go above and beyond those goals. Can't wait to see them all done... I think that's the unexpected bonus for Armies On Parade - you see soo much concentrated hobby in such a short period you just want to paint all your pile of shame! I will get though it, you mark my words.
