I've bought, assembled and undercoated a nice selection of models to paint. Now is the time to transform the black and lifeless army to a colourful and awesome one!
First off is a 10-model tactical squad. The The first model is completed, and the other nine have been basecoated and had the first armour highlights painted on, as well as basing. The full squad should be ready in a day or two.
Here's a couple of pics of my first ever Space Marine. Obviously, I'm not going to spend 10 hrs/model on the tactical squad marines, so the painting standard isn't brilliant, but I think it looks decent, and the full squad together will surely look even better.
The GW transfers that came with the box were a PITA to apply, so I have decided to freehand the chapter symbol on the models instead. I think that worked out quite well.
Next up: Full tactical squad!
