I obtained a very large Eldar force as a trade a few months back and they will be a recurring theme for me throughout the challenge. Due to the amount of jet bikes and vehicles I felt that it was an obvious option to go Samm-Hain and I do like painting red. For scoring I have considered the jetbikes the same as a horse mounted 28mm so they are worth 90 points, the walker is 15 and the heavy weapons I only gave 5 points each for a total of 120.
I use blister pack foam after a basecoat to do all the shading on vehicles, while not as efficient as an airbrush it has a somewhat similar effect and I can do it in my lounge room while watching tv.
Not sure what is next up but I intend to have a very wide selection of different miniatures as the challenge progresses.
Welcome back to the Challenge Anthony!
Wow, what a great passel of jetbikes you have for us! You know, I've never heard of using blister pack foam for paint sponging, but the effect is very convincing. I learn something new every day. The red looks very good and I like your addition of the black stripes and rider armour to add a bit of contrast and break-up the colours a bit. While the bikes are very cool, I must say my favourite is that walker.
120 points for you, sir!
