I'm currently at a little over 40% with around 4 months left – I'm writing off September. This is actually pretty good. I have another 939 points (including the apocalypse beast) that just need details and basing, and with NOVA coming up in a month, I may end up painting around 1,000 points in the next few weeks alone. By the time I include intangible upgrades (chaos rewards, psychic mastery levels, etc.), I expect to exceed my goal by a few hundred points by December.
In 2016, I'll shift my focus from quantity to quality in an attempt to advance my painting skills. The current plan is to paint a few 1,000 point "modules," smaller projects that will allow me to focus more attention on individual models. There's still plenty of time to think about this, but three modules of 1,000 points each seems reasonable. Some ideas:
- Khorne Daemonkin – no purchase necessary
- "true-scale" Grey Knights using the Stormcast Eternals – finally a use for those models, and a great counterpoint to a year of daemons!
- Ravenwing, because playing an unbound army list just to use the Deathwing is terrible
