My August painting project, 150 points of Tau in the form of 3 Stealth Suits and 2 Marker Drones, is painted based, just in time. I continue to refine my lens-painting technique - I'm particularly happy with the ones on the marker drones. On the other hand, the few bits of cloth/fabric, on the upper arms of the suits (under the shoulder guards) didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. I need to work on my blending, and to thin my paints a bit more.
Over on Forumopolis, I've been taking part in a wargaming painting challenge. Since several of us are behind in our army painting, we each resolved to take an average-to-large army for our respective games (40k works out to 1500-1750 points), divide the army into ten roughly equal segments point-wise, and paint one segment a month for a year (with 2 floating months off as needed). I've been working on my Tau cadre, and as of the end of July I have around 300 points completed (I finished up 120 points in June as a preliminary month). So far, I've been pleased with the results.
I should have August's minis up soon - a 150 pt. squad of Stealth Suits and Marker Drones are in progress as we speak. September's minis - another squad of Fire Warriors, with some gun drones to pad out the points - are primed and ready to go. For more pictures, visit the Miniatures page.
