As some of my previous posts on this blog have alluded to, I’ve been actively competing in the Bolter and Chainsword’s E Tenebrae Lux III, which is a great motivator to get things painted. After my two early completions of roughly a thousand points a piece, I decided to go somewhat larger, vowing to complete:

…Of total value 4521pts on or before August 1st. Now, making this vow just over four weeks before was perhaps ambitious – but I was keen to crack on and get a huge chunk of this done. Or die trying…
As ever, I resorted to painting in large batches, and spraying too:
I ploughed through the Deathshroud and Grave Wardens first:
And then moved onto the Cataphractii:
Leaving me with just a Knight:
If anyone is wondering why there’s a change of colour scheme from my normal – it’s because I’ve tied it into the Legio Mortis, with my inspiration being Dread Wake.
Meaning I had completed all of this!
And then, crazily, added another two vows with 24 hours to go:
Which I completed that evening:
6971pts completed in total over the course of a month – not bad, eh?
I’d highly recommend entering something similar: high levels of motivation and seeing everyone else’s great work is a massive inspiration. And, you can plough through great quantities in no time!
