I think this could be an eye opener for me.

Models bought: 12 (Dropzone commander and Bolt action)
Terrain bought: 0
Models assembled:44
Terrain elements assembled: 0
 Models painted: 48
Terrain elements painted: 0

I've completed my ucm vehicles and my Scourge vehicles and sneakily made a start on Ethans Shaltari. Just the infantry to do now. Ive also started on my Reb faction for deadzone.
Made a list for my Rangers (bolt action)
Sadly only a one Space Marine so far.

well having only made one model it was hardly going to be alot of work for yourself lol nice model, who is he?

here's the two larest terrain pieces I painted.

Image
assembled.
Image
sprayed black and then a slightly lighter silver spray.
Image
washed with acrylic black paint watered down alot with small amout jif surface cleaner added to help it flow (no idea if the jif helped lol).Image
floor panels washed with baal red.

Ive now also painted lower panels with some Texture GW paint and washed that. Still needs more washing for colour variation and tone to be finished. Also painted missile, but not happy with them. Any one got a good scheme / method for missiles?

Think it looks great pal. Perhaps tiny serial numbers around the collar of each missile.

Just a question. When you say models bought/built/painted. How do you count it? I mean if you buy a Space Marine Tactical squad. Is that 1 model? or 10? I'm asking because it alter perspective when you think about it. What sounds worse, 10 space marines, or 10x 1/24 Airfix Aircraft?
