My 6th Edition Painting list

Nick speaking,

Although I don't have a rigid painting list, I do like to have a choice of a few units that I know I will paint next. It's always good to have some sort of long term goal for what needs to be painted, but sometimes you just have to paint whatever excites you at the time. When 6th Edition hit, I had just started painting up my three Forge World Wave Serpents. I have already painted my Dire Avengers for one Serpent, and my Fire Dragons and Howling Banshees were top of my painting list for the other two.

Things are a bit different now though. 6th Edition now makes it impossible for the Banshees to assault from a transport, and that really puts a dampener on things for them. I am still going to paint the girls up at some point, but their priority has just dropped down my list. Luckily, the Fire Dragons are still epic in 6th, so they aren't going anywhere, which is great, as I have been looking forward to painting those guys for a while.

So what has moved up to the top of my painting list? Well, sticking with Eldar for a bit, I only have one painted Farseer at the moment, so I will be looking at getting my other Seer painted, four Farseers at 2k sounds good to me! Other Eldar moving up the ranks are the Avatar, Shining Spears and the once voted worse Eldar unit in a poll I did, the Swooping Hawks. It's really great to be able to get excited about painting some units that I never thought I would get around to painting anytime soon...





As for my Tyranids, apart from needing to convert and paint my Tyranid Prime. I am now really looking forward to finally having a reason to paint my old Winged Hive Tyrant and Ravener models. I am still not convinced that the Flyrant is the best HQ choice, but it's good enough to warrant a paint job. I have wanted to paint her up for quite sometime now, so that's brilliant, but I will have to take off the dual Talons and replace them with dual Devourers first though, as that seems like a much better option these days! So what units has 6th Edition inspired you to paint from your army case?
