Like quite a few, I've been taken with Lone Pirgrim's painting points system, although I've decided to do it a bit differently. You see, I know I'm a slow painter and to be honest, I'm not really bothered with comparing how quickly I paint to how quickly some one else does.
So, I had a chat with wifey, who's always going on about me getting more mini's and we've come to a deal. She doesn't mind me getting more models as long as I don't end up with more than I've got now. So, I've counted up the models I've got waiting to paint, this is what I've got waiting :-
4 Leman Russes
1 Vulture Gunship
So, usings the paints points system, I've got 130 points worth of vehicles waiting to be painted. Ok, now the troops :-
14 Cadian Officers
20 Cadian Specials (metals)
6 Cadian Heavy Weapon Squads (3pts each)
20 Storm Troopers
125 Cadian Guardsmen
10 Catachen Officers
27 Catachen Specials
7 Catachen Heavy Weapons Squads (3 pts each)
35 Catachen Guardsmen
2 Air defence Platforms (2 pts each)
Giving me a total of 274 painting points worth of models waiting. The grand total is 404 pts, so as long as this number gets lower by the new year, I'm ok getting the new shinny stuff in May!
Right, better get painting.
