Thanks for the kind words. I have been following the progress of your Fire Warriors they look great, you will get through them! Everyone works at their own pace, I have always been a fast worker but I often regret rushing through at the end and wish my work was more detail oriented and careful but try as I might just not me.
This Ghostkeel actually took me over a year to finish (thought maybe only 12 hours of working time. I built it just after release in 2015. Then I started painting it right away. I got a little done, then had a big life change / move. Didn't work on it for 9 months, came back and finished the legs. Only a few weeks ago I came back to it and finished the upper body and weapons. I magnetize all my models, The Ghostkeels upper body and weapons all detach from the rest. So I assembled and painted all these pieces separately before putting them together into the finished model.
Right now I'm excited about basing so came back to the Ghostkeel yesterday and made a base for it. Pretty happy with how it is right now. Will probably add some touch up, decals and a hard coat to protect the paint sometime in the future.
My local shops August tournament is coming up, I'm hoping to bring a fully painted (and based) list for the first time ever! We will see how that goes haha.
