Troops in progress

I've just completed the 2nd Tactical Squad along with the transport. That means one more squad and one more transport to go before I finish painting my troops inventory. This will comprise half of the company along with my assault marines and one devastator squad.
However, I'm contemplating as to whether or not to collect a whole company (in my case three more squads with transports and 10 more assault marines with 1 more devastator squad). This is of course due to the upcoming apoc battle coming soon (my club are holding an Ultramarines Vs Chaos Marines where we try to muster the whole chapter end of this year) and what I have now is barely enough to make an impact. At the back of my mind, I can collect another army with that budget! (maybe chaos or space wolves). I suppose I'll wait till I finish the rest and see how it goes from there.
I've resorted back to painting in batches as oppose to my usual methods of completing one miniature before the next. I managed to maintain the quality but with a little more speed this time, also as I'm more familiar with the design of the models and finding new ways of shortcuts without compromising the finished product.
