Garfy: Welcome to the first post in the 'Tale of the Mega Painters' series. Before you ask, Stahly and I do not consider ourselves 'mega' painters, we're actually referring to the megaforce box sets Games Workshop release every year at Christmas. When I saw Necron Megaforce, I pretty much knew I could use all the units in the box with my existing units to create an army and I could save some money. It really is a win win situation. There is a downside though. I now have a mountain of sprues looking at me, taunting me. It's quite daunting to have an entire army to paint, so when I found out Stahly was in a similar situation with his Dark Eldar Megaforce, I made a suggestion for a joint motivation challenge. We're not going to impose deadlines on each other. That would have a detrimental effect on quality and motivation. Instead, we're going to encourage each other to take our time and do the very best we can.
