After going through a few boxes and realising I've got mini's coming out of my ears I've decided to make a start on clearing some of the back log. Problem is I really don't know where to start. So, I thought I'd start a log as a way of keeping me motivated. I'm not gonna make a start till next week (after my exams), but I need you guys to decide what I do and in what order.
Here's a small list of what I've got:

Space marines: too many to list. I'll probably leave them to last as they're all over the place and need bringing together first.

Nids:5 stealers, 8 gaunts, 8 hormagaunts, 2 tyrant guard,

IG: 2 heavy weapons teams, a tarantula, some RT rough riders, some ghosts, three stromtroopers, 2 landspeeder crew possibly other stuff I've forgotten :)

=][=: conversion based on axrael, his henchmen, and the van Helsing =][=

Dwarfs: Ironbreakers, miners, 6 slayers.

Yes I know it's a very random and eclectic collection and no I'm not organised. Hence why I need your guys help
Ta!

Hmm, maybe doing a batch job on the nids would be a good way to get back into the swing of things.

Maybe if you did a squad or something of marines in between the other projects, it'd help break things up and help avoid being stuck with a big glut of the one thing at the end.

Regardless of what you end up doing, hope you have fun. All the best!

Looks good- much prefer a more 'natural' colour scheme on the nids as opposed to the red and black GW ones.

Six Stormtroopers had their paint touched up. Something still missing, not quite sure what it is yet. Will post pics tomorrow. Fourth stealer almost finished and snipped the legs on a tyrant guard to start reposing him. I've also decided to use the stealer "blades" on my hormagaunts, just something abut them that makes them look better somehow.

they are alien creatures, who's to say what is natural?

the green scheme looks very nice there. though im not a big fan of green nids as everyone i know has at point (including myself) had a green and bone tyranid army. ive also seen them in Wd and 3 GW stores.

Well here's my storm troopers. I know the eyes are missing but there's something else missing. The beret's will be a sort of beige colour too.

Well, true, but I'm just not a fan of the GW colour scheme. Sure, they're aliens, but that scheme just makes them look like toys, IMO.

Anyway, stormtroopers are on their way to looking good, keep up the good work!

Space shark captain finished, MM trooper finished and Lysander clone just needs eyes and crux painting. Pics tomorrow. Have also discovered there are winged skulls on the beret of the stormtroopers. Will tidy them up tomorrow.

Thing is cos I'm using space sharks I can't use calgar's rules I'm gonna have to create a captain. Now I've got a candidate but need to bling him up a bit. Could be interesting...

Well here's my storm troopers. I know the eyes are missing but there's something else missing. The beret's will be a sort of beige colour too.

i really hate to say it but those look like the autons from doctor who, dressed in army camo. well, they do to me.

other than that, lovely! particularly like the 'nid color scheme...

Ok, I've been slack I appologise. However with the medusa campaign up and coming I'm being slightly side-tracked to alter my army to fit. So, I will be starting two new scout squads, one toting bolters and a heavy bolter and one decked out with snipers and a missle launcher. Other additions will also be made! Watch this space.

Need some help, does anyone know of an easy way to remove all the scorpion symbols from the FW scorpions sprue? Sounds strange I know but they're the best examples of Mk4 armour out and scorpions don't really go with sharks. Also need to straight Culln's power sword somehow.
Here's the page on the FW site...

Ok, the GK's have appeared but I was wondering, since they're gonna be used as a fast attack unit I was gonna give them jump packs to show how they come in. Would that work or would I get fanboyz complaining about it?
