right, here's the plan.
i'm building a DKoK army. i'm buying it one squad at a time.
i'll build and paint a full squad before buying a new one.

my basic colour scheme is;
boltgun metal on the helmet/shoulder armour
scorched brown on the trenchcoat,
codex grey trousers,
graveyard earth puttees
snakebite leather mask/gloves/boots.
i'll get a picture of the WiP models later.

One squad at a time? Could take a while...O well these should be good!

the squads are £32 each. i'm not buying in bulk, my bank manager would have me shot ;)

also it gives me a far higher chance of fully painting the army.

We have the same plan Marv :)
I'm going to build a Combat Patrol myself, but I have to wait until October to get my hands on the minis.

I'm really looking forward to see some photos.

Nice, the paint on the boots looks a bit thin though, you can see the black shining through. Can I ask where in Fife your from, I live in Fife as well. Just outside Dunfermline.

the boots on the top one have been inked (winsor and newton peat brown ink, fantastic stuff)
the bottom one needs another coat or two yet.

i live near dundee, where i do most of my gaming.

Ah I remember telling you about my cunning plan to build my Elysians a squad at a time and paint as I go, You know I have had them over a year now and have still not built my second heavy bolter squad, anti tank squad or my last sentinal.
You know you want to buy them all with your big pay off and have an army before Paul.
Doooo it, you know it is the right thing to do.

you keep out of this you!!
one at a time dammit!
it's the only way they'll all get painted.

i ahve some death korps too and plan on doing one squad at a time as it seems wisest, but i have to paint my cadians first before i let myself near the death korps :( looking good, like the top guys jacket alot, though not very trench warfare, not too keen on the grey trousers though, kidna looking like demin and obviously you wouldnt have that in a trench

i didn't want to go down the wermacht road with grey jackets.
the trousers look a little brighter in the photographs than in the flesh.

i envisage in about a month about a dozen or so project logs on death korp.. good work hope you keep it up, remember its only about £600 to do 1500 points... :)
