You may be aware (if not, why not?) that 73rd over at Unforgiven Angels is quite rightly trying to encourage a few of us ne'er-do-well bloggers to get painting with A Tale of Even More Painters, or TOEMP: you'll find more details on the link above.
I, for my sins, have agreed to give it a go.
In a little while, I'll post my (current) Grand Plans for the Cadian 24th, but for now I'll publically announce some of the units my I intend to get painted:
-- 3Pl HQ and 1 Section
-- 3Pl 2 Section
-- 3Pl 3 Section
-- 3Pl Spec Wpn Squad and Mortar Squad B
-- Armoured Fist HQ and 2 Section
-- Baneblade 'Zarathustra'
Now, I'm not under any illusions here: not only am I a painfully slow painter; I've also got to go back to work at the beginning of September, and it'll be extremely busy: I'm taking over another year group (US: grade) in addition to the one I currently have responsibility for, and my department is going to be homeless for a few months whilst they start work on a new building.
