So college finishes soon, and nothing to do until October. Instead of sitting on my not so comfy sofa all day, i decided to get some of my armies done.

Then i was speaking to Lav about the Carnage social in Septmeber and thought "What a lovely excuse to get my guard army painted". Considering i have had the army for about 2 years now, about time it got finished.

Anyway hopefully this thread will keep my lazy **** into gear, i mean any gear apart from neutral :D .

The army list i am planning to use is here (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39482), the Carnage social (for those few who do not know) is a campaign weekend where the imperium of man shows the chaos boys whos boss. Yes Lav, that includes you :evilgrin:!

The weekend will probably be more about drinking and funky shirts than gaming but anyway, should be a laugh.

Heres a list of what i need to do:

Command HQ - Painted apart for SB which is half done.

3 Sentinels with Autocannons - Should arrive Monday

Heavy Bolter Squad - Done

Special weapon squad - Done

Infantry Platoon - 7 Guardsmen painted and Junior officer

Grenadiers - need to paint the meltagunners, chimera needs finishing

Lascannon Sentinels - One painted, other undercoated.

Battle tanks - One half built, other is kinda built ;) .

Basilisk - Nearly built

So theres the list, and off i go! I'll post some piccies of what i have done so far and updates as i build it.

Any C&C welcome, even if it's just a pat on the back or a bit of encouragement.

I know how rough it is trying to paint a Guard army. I'm on my Nth version in just four years. Besides what's in my photobucket, I only have 24 Storm Troopers painted and the rest of my Armored Co. built. I must have given away so many other Guardsmen and vehicles as my color scheme changed.

Speaking of which, pats on back, I too really like the scheme you chose. Your stuff is looking really good. I wish you luck.

Got the Autocannon sentinels in the post this morning. Need a bit of work and one of them has the two front pieces but these are only 1 from mail order.
