Well I did it, I did the 24 hours of painting, and I sadly failed to get all 25 models painted but I did paint 15 of them.

Here they are when I finished.

And when I finished basing them today, this how they look.

The good news is that I smashed my target of £200 and raised a whopping £402 for the Willow Foundation, and if you want, you can donate here still!

It was exhausting and at the same time amazing, I will be doing it again one day, but probably splitting it up into two shifts.

If you are insane, you can watch the videos here on Twitch at the Edge of Empire channel.

What I Am Painting

I started off by painting some Bullgryns for Niki’s Death Korps of Krieg army. These are 3D printed on his resin printer and are absolutely beautiful, a real pleasure to work with.

But now of course it reinforces my desire to get myself a 3D printer!

I then turned my attention to painting the test models for the Sister of Battle painting challenge.

I painted her to match Megan’s avatar which was fantastically drawn by

I am happy with it and the scheme is easily replicated and should be reasonable to get one in the 24 hours for all 25 models. Well I was wrong about that.

I also painted my test Penitent Engine, because this is the model I am most nervous about, but this was no where near as bad as I thought I was gonna be, I bought this specially to paint as a test.

After the 24 hour painting challenge I returned to my painting queue and I concentrated on and finished the Valkyrie for my Millitarium Tempestus.

And to add to Aeronautica Imperialis I painted a Valkyrie and Vendetta in the same scheme as the 28mm one!

So how does this leave my painting queue looking now?

  2. Stormcast Eternals Castigators x 5
  3. Sons of Horus Tactical Squad x 10
  4. T’au Breacher Team x 10 & Devilfish
  5. Death Korps of Krieg Mortar Teams x 3
  6. Blood Ravens Redemptor Dreadnought
  7. Stormcast Eternals Vanguard Hunters x 10 & Knight-Zephyros
  8. Ultramarines Contemptor Dreadnought
  9. Zone Mortalis Terrain
  10. Blood Ravens Intercessors x 10

What I Am Reading

Still making my way though Ghostmaker, it’s taking time but I am enjoying it.

What I Am Playing

Sadly no games were played this week.

What I Am Backing

Project Infinite Hole has funded and I have completed the backer survey for it, I look forward to getting that later this year hopefully.

The 2020 GURPS PDF Challenge also funded and that raised enough that all 12 PDFs were unlocked.

For the first time in a while I have not got anything funding, nor do I think anything is on the horizon.

What I Am Cooking

This week me and Lindsay made some pulled pork. In case you haven’t guessed already from past posts, Kansas City pulled pork is my signature dish.

We cooked a pork shoulder for 6 hours in Newcastle Brown Ale with onions, garlic and black pepper, before pulling it and then cooking it for another two hours in my Kansas City BBQ sauce.

Lindsay made some red potato wedges to serve with it, and we accompanied it with a salad, coleslaw, bread buns and slices of Emmental cheese.

What I Am Spending

Nowt this week much other than the Lady of Sorrows audiobook from Audible.
