So I'm biting the bullet......sorta.
One of my favorite 40k forums Work In Progress has their quarterly Oath of the Moment Pledge up.
So my pledge is to build and paint a 1500 pt Sentinels of Terra List (in Crimson Fist Colors) in 3 months.......Great what did I just do..... 5 Drop Pods, 30 marines, 14 Vanguard, Librarian and Storm Talon in 90 days.....at least its only 45 bases
Also if you have not checked out Work in Progress check out the site. Some of the craziest conversions I have ever seen.
