Hmm, this strikes me as maybe being a bit more suited outside of the project logs forum, I see alot of thread by you here it seems.

But anyway, do you have any plans for what you will do with it, proposed conversions maybe or will it just be a stock mini? How good is your painting as well, marines often sell on eBay for about their cost price unless their paint job is really something. I have seen so marines on eBay with crummy paint jobs (not inferring anything about your ability) whose mainly use when purchased is to be stripped and repainted.

If you have some good abilities and are going to put some serious effort into this it could command a high price. The same goes for any major conversion you might do with it. Although I myself would probably just convert marines for sale on eBay rather than actually painting them even then.

A little more initial input from you would help with some direction and ideas on what you will really be doing with this small project would help garner replies far more readily.

Ok this is more of a side project but will be updated regularly. I have some pics of my lysander which wasnt anythign specail he was just painted for an army.



Hes just about done now. But Im 14 so you can expect that kind of job though.
I will spend a bit of time. He has a fantasy c/w helmet and im not sure about another weapon im not a fan of the p.f. Thanks

Thanks exo the c/l chaplain (cant think of the chaos equivelant...GRRR) Thanks that was useful, when will you have pics of your other minis? They are great! Do you think people will be hestiant because of my age or will they go on the mini?

@hideous_loon: well, I am just trying to be helpful, and if that means I can also advertise my project (which is currently in a snail-like state in dynamics due to my soon-to-be graduation.. damnation), all the better ;)

@spongebob103: Nice that you liked the models, I hope to get some more done sooner than later, and then take some more pics. I think people will appreciate your mini because of the work you will do for it, not your age.. I also have to say that the helm you have for the Man looks really promising, I hope to see the guy painted soon :cool: (although remember to take your time, do not rush. Ebay likes well-painted models)

Good to see some more LZ fans out there, a mighty fine album that one

18-04-2006, 10:39
Yep LZ is one of my all time favs. Also you should listen to some gyroscope there from perth also! Ive spent the better part of my day painting most of his armour . His base isnt looking to swish at the moment though...


sorry about the quality.

I will have some updated pics on friday as today was the last day of my holidays and Ive got school...

18-04-2006, 13:25

I had just got up from a looong time of working, my dad asks "hey can I see that" I respond yes, but be careful... DROPS IT... Everything brakes even the bits that are pinned. Paints chipped off the knee, Im not a happy camper. Hows the bone look its my first real attempt...
