I'll cut to the chase:

In the 8 years I've been in the hobby, I never played a game, or even had a single army big enough to really play, until now. This log will detail the painting of my Imperial Guard and their Inquisitorial Allies, as well as the Speed Freeks army I'm just starting.

A Heresy miniature:

Comments and criticism would make my day.

I like the Heresy miniature, it looks cool.

and your Kell is amazing, really nice shading on that flag and good texturing on the armor plates.

Thanks! These are two of the first miniatures I painted since getting back into the hobby this summer after a year or two hiatus.

With Jerran Kell, I was just learning that it wasn't okay to drybrush anything except terrain, bases, and sometimes chainmail and fur. As a result, the flag is simply drybrushed.

I've just photographed a bunch of the other stuff I've done since then, as well as some of the things I have still to do.

I'm off to install Photoshop now...

A trip to the dollar store yielded four pretty little brightly coloured toy Humvees. This is what one looked like after I finished with it.

I like the "Hummer". Also nice to see Texas Bruce done as something different from Korben Dallas. :D

I'd like to apologize for my abysmal picture taking skills, I'll have to figure out a better lighting setup.

And that's pretty much everything that's all finished in my army, the rest of it is still in progress, although my second infantry squad is 95% done.

Nice looking good so far

Are they the old cadians?

Yeah the first squad (green and yellow) is a mix of metal Cadians and metal Catachans. I also have a squad of plastic Catachans and another made from Empire Militia and extra bits of plastic Cadians and Catachans. One squad and most of my command is made of plastic Cadians, as well as some character models.
