Then I realize everything they have on the table is painted, plus everything they have in their bag, while I have 1/3 finished and the rest primed, plus plenty of silver in my bag.
So today I made the decision that I would actually follow up on my intention to make Legion a side project, one of limited scope that is around just for fun. The Shepherds were doing nothing but gathering dust and making me feel guilty for not finished them, so I got them done. Are they my best work? Far from it. They're finished though, done (aside from snow) and ready to serve, which is just as (if not more) satisfying as spending another couple months figuring out and implementing a scheme.

As if all that wasn't enough, I also got arc markings painted on Typhon (not that he needs them) and put letters on the two Shredders painted in my scheme. Some time last week I picked up a pot of the new Citadel texture paint Mourn Mountain Snow. My current method of snow basing has left me wanting more, so I figured I'd give the new GW product a shot. I hoped to get a finished base out of the pot, but the reality was somewhat less (as you can see on the Shepherds above). The "paint" was more solid than liquid and probably would have gone on better with a palette knife/spatula than a brush. The paint part did cover fairly well, but the texture part was too sparse for my purposes. I may go back and do another layer or three, but the current plan is to stick with what I had been doing (watered down glue + Gale Force 9 snow) on top of the texture paint instead of just plain white. Next on the list is getting the bases finished on the Shepherds and Aby, then I'll proceed to hoping that the weather breaks long enough for me to get some varnish applied in time for the tournament.
