Alright, time to come up with 500 points to paint by the end of the month for our gaming group painting challenge. Overpowering awesome-ness isn't really the goal, just painting stuff is. So to that end, we've got a nice balanced list to work with.
Master w/ Great Weapon, Heavy Armour, Shield, Sea Dragon Cloak, Cold One - 114
10 Dark Elf Repeater Crossbowmen w/ musician - 105
5 Dark Riders w/ repeater crossbows, musician - 117
5 Cold One Knights w/Musician, Standard Bearer - 159
Total: 495 points
I'm getting kind of a late start to this, so I chose a primarily cavalry force, so I'll have a lower number of models to paint (although cav models aren't exactly speedy). 21 models by the end of the month? We'll see!
