Nice army shot and you are getting good use out of the printer already, excited to see those minis get some color on them.

@Nev: Thanks! 3d printers do open up a lot of options model-wise, and many of the STL files out there are free. Plus a lot of artists have Patreons where you pay a small monthly fee and get a lot of files from them each month.

@CB: Thank you!

@YWS: Thanks!

@Viterbi: Thanks! I too am excited to get paint on some of these 3d printed models; I hope they'll paint up as well as they printed.

Massive image dump incoming, as I went ahead and took individual shots of many of the models from my Sisters tourney list:

Canoness and Dogmata:

Celestian Sacresants with Anointed Halberds:




Sorry some of the photos are kind of distant; it was hard to get all the models in the shot for the larger units. My lighting setup at my desk isn't the best so it usually works better for fewer models at a time. Also, this isn't literally every model I painted; I didn't bother showing my second Dominion squad or the few Battle Sisters that I painted, as those are more mundane. Also, on the Retributors, I actually ran them as 2 Multimeltas and 2 Heavy Bolters in each unit; I painted them in groups with the same weapons though.

Continuing this theme, here's how Morvenn Vahl looked at the tournament:

Good enough to count as painted for a tournament, but still very much WIP. I chose purple instead of the blue shown on the box art for the cloth parts in order to tie her in with the rest of my army. Plus it goes really well with the gold.

Switching gears, here's how my entry for the Dakka monthly painting challenge is coming:

Don't think I'm gonna make it by the end of the month. Of course, I did paint a whole army in two weeks so anything is possible, but I don't think the motivation is there. A game I play online a lot just released some new content though, so I might be too busy with that to paint anything for a bit.

Rounding off this photo bonanza, here's a shot of my entire assembled Stormcast Eternals army for Age of Sigmar (I got it all put together, including some stuff I added after I got that eBay lot):

Some of the models look gold; they are in gold plastic. Nothing has been primed or painted yet. This may become my winter project, unless one of my myriad other projects takes precedence. We'll have to see. Here's a list of what's there:
The characters:
Vandus Hammerhand
Knight-Vexillor with Banner of Apotheosis
Lord-Arcanum on Gryph-charger
Knight-Vexillor with Pennant
The units:
5 Vanguard-Hunters
3 Vanguard-Palladors
3 Vanguard-Raptors with Longstrike Crossbows
3 Aetherwings
9 Gryph-Hounds
2x 5 Sequitors
5 Evocators with Grandstaves
2x 3 Castigators
3x 5 Liberators
2x 5 Vindictors
5 Protectors with 2 Starsoul Maces
3 Annihilators
3 Praetors
Stormstrike Chariot
All told, this is almost 5000 points worth of models. A pretty good start to an army. Next on my list to add to it (probably not real soon) will be a box of Judicators, a second box of Vanguard-Raptors (so I can run a full 6-man unit, these guys are awesome!), and a second box of Paladins (so I can flesh out the Protectors, they work good in larger units). I would also love to pick up some of the new Dragons and Dragon riders, but I'm guessing those are going to be exorbitantly expensive, so I consider them long-term goals. I'll probably pick up the aforementioned things first, then perhaps a box or two of Dracothian Guard before I look into the dragons. One big difference between this and my 40k stuff is that right now I have no plans to start any other armies for AoS. Space limitations is the main concern, but also I just won't have time to spend on them. I'm already stretched thinner than gold foil with my existing projects!

My armies (re-counted and updated on 9/25/20, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~16000 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~900 | Space Wolves: ~3800
Astra Militarum: ~800 | Officio Assassinorum: ~600 | Imperial Knights: ~1300 | Sisters of Battle: ~1900

Whoa. That's a lot of righteous firepower. Good stuff, ZergSmasher. Looking forward to that host of Stormcast, too.

Month isn’t over yet! Get painting on that dread.

Sisters are nice as always, and man, that’s a TON of SCE. You have a scheme in mind? I know that in theory they have chapter-like things, and a lot of official patterns.

You should break out the lightbox and get close up formal shots of all your finished squads. I love wide army pics for the majesty and scale, but individual pics let you see what’s going on better.

Gun nuns are looking great all together.

That list of SCE is . I like the new sculpts so much better than the older ones that I don't want them on the same painting table together in my house. I too would like to build up some of the Dragons for a SCE army, but unless I win the lottery, that plan must wait.
