Iron Man Paint Competition

So, I competed in an Iron Man paint competition over the weekend, taking second for best painted. Here is what I was able to get done:

11 Acolytes(Thousand Sons) armour painted blue, inked purple, robes painted khemri brown, guns and shoulders painted gold, guns painted boltgun silver. Here is a close up of one of them.

No, I just need to keep going, flowing through the whole army. I have a WIP Daemon Prince that I will have pictures up for someday. I also just won an auction for 5 more Black Reach, which will finish off my terminator squad and give me a sergeant to use for my Chaos Sorcerer Lord conversion. I am trying to get another set, so I can do my Obliterators.
I recently tore the legs off my Dreadnought, deciding a more bird/mech warrior style set of legs would work better. My defiler I will likely totally scrap, keeping it for my second while I build a new one with similar legs to the dread. My first rhino is on the verge of being completely built if I would just sit down and finish it. Other than that, I am well on my way to my 1850 list for Tacticon, which I have already signed up for, so I had better get working.
On the topic of Tacticon, my Tomb Kings army will use mostly models I already have, with only my converted Priestess, Tomb Scorpion, and swarms being added. They do need painted, so that will need done as well.
I also think that I will be able to get in several games at least with both armies, as I think I will be joining the Saturday group, the ones who put on the Iron Man Challenge.
Well, time to roll some dice.
