Burna Boyz Complete

After a very busy month of August, I managed to finished my Painting Challenge Project for the month, a unit of Burna Boyz. I had orginally hoped to paint a unit of twelve boyz, but there was just not enough time to paint more than five.

Burna Boyz

For September's project, I am going to paint a Killa Kan Attack Mob of three Kans with Rokkit Launchas. I think I am going to set aside painting my Ogres for this month (since I still have not come up with a tribe name yet) and try to catch up on some of my Ork painting. For the past two months I have squeaked by on painting only minimum sized units and I was really wanting to finish whole units. I have already started painting another set of five Burna Boyz, my last Deffkopta, and my Fighta-bomma since it has been too hot and humid for the past couple days to prime my Killa Kans. Once they are primed, I will paint them first and then finish these other projects.

Resolutions
With the end of August, the year is now two thirds over. Looking at my resolutions for the year, I am not as far along as I had hoped to be at this time with only having two completed resolutions. I was expecting to have finished three or four. If it was not for the release of 8th edition Fantasy and me starting up an Ogre Kingdoms army, I think I would be. However, I still think I can finish them all. The only one that I question is the Skullhamma as I have not even started it yet.

eh, no one even remembers their new Year's resolutions after the month of January, so the fact that you're working towards them (if a bit behind) is still commendable!

Thanks, and you're right no one remembers. I am really trying to use these resolutions to get my orks painted. I have always been bad about staying focused on one army and finishing it. These resolutions have helped.

The burna boyz look great! I too am impressed that you've stuck with the resolutions, I basically tossed out all of mine by the end of February.

Looking good! But still, they're very clean. Ever thought of dirtying them up a bit like these?

Thanks Mekaniak! I frequently hear that my orks look two clean and normally I contribute it to the camera flash when taking pictures of them (it tends to brighten the yellow). In this case, I did water the devlan mud down too much and I was thinking of going back and muddying them up more.
