Escalation Painting Challenge - Start

I have amassed a pile of things that I haven't gotten around to painting for over a year and in some instances two years.  Various reasons delayed this painting but I came up with a plan to get this stuff finished (it's not an original plan at all).

A friend and I are going to do a monthly painting challenge starting at 200 points and escalating 200 points a game.  We'll aim for monthly but real life will likely get in there.  Luckily I've been able to structure my unpainted stuff into a legal chaos marine list with daemon allies.  Once done, I should have all my my chaos stuff fully painted and cut down on some of my backlog of hobby projects.

Land Raider Achilles w/ Chapterhouse Sponsons

This is nothing revolutionairy but I thought I'd share a picture of a land raider achilles with the chapterhouse sponsons thrown on.  The Achilles Alpha Pattern didn't exist at the time when I made this; though my version blends in with my other land raiders better.  Everything is also on magnets for future variants I'm sure will come out.  It's quite boxy now and someday might even get paint.

[Emerald Fists] Chainfist Squad complete

Squad Isandrias is now complete.  Like most marine players I really like terminators.  I think it's solely because they're 'bigger' than normal marines.  If marines were all terminator sized, people would want something even bigger!  The squad is led by the commander cullin model.  Originally I shied away from gold on my Fist models because I didn't want them to be so decorative however I really like how it looks and on this guy decided to trim him up with tons of it!

[Emerald Fists] WIP chainfist terminators.

No post from last week, was in Vegas for a bender.  I'm now recovered and I've done some more work on my chainfist terminator squad.  The assault cannon guy is there so that when I make a 10 man I can have two assault cannons w/ 3 storm bolters, and 5 chainfists.  A superheavy's nightmare!  I recently decided that since I really like a lot of the forge world sculpts for HQ units but don't want to paint 30 captains, I'd start using them for sergeants and such (like my command squad).  In this case I'm using commander cullin (sp?) from the red scorpions as my sergeant.  It's a cool dynamic pose too.  He's pretty blinged out though so his fluff will probably have to state that he's a very old and decorated marine but refused command or wasn't cut out for it.  I think Arjac rockfist is similar in the space wolves.
