I've had a Fantasy painting log going for a while, but with a new painting competition going on at my local store lately, I've been doing more 40k - enough to rival my fantasy painting, so I thought I'd create a log here for them.
I've been collecting Blood angels for 15 years, and whilst a lot of it was sold off, other stuff has been paint stripped for repainting, and recently some other items have been released, and more due in february, so that's been getting me going.
My Ork army is a replacement of my 2nd ed army but is all new models except some vehicles. The first few posts here will likely be photos of what has been done so far, however until I can get the photos done, here's what has been done most recently.
First up, a Blood Angels captain. He's now finished but no finished pic yet sorry!
Secondly, there's Ork Flash Gitz. These won last months painting competition but I can't get a finished pic til I get them back!
Third up is My Ork Warboss - he got second the month before, and here he is in finished state - yay!
Fourth is my Tyranid test piece - a Carnifex. I have all my old metal tyranids but are replacing the army with the new plastics. The army is currently 12 warriors (unpainted) and the carnifex with about 150 genestealers. These will get more love as I get time, but I never intend doing these to a competition standard - they will be for gaming so I opted for a fast but organic painting method using inks only (except the eyes and teeth and bases).
Last is a model I painted up for my brother a couple years ago as a test in colour co-ordination so it's the choice of colours that I wanted to get right rather than the quality of the painting itself.
Just noticed that none of these pics show the models based - my own 40k models all have rust brown rocks for the bases to represent Baal primarily, and then the rest done so the armies match.
Please, plenty of advice and constructive criticism, though remember that my infantry will for the most part be painted to a lower standard on purpose for quicker painting. I don't really intend to rectify them much, though who knows what time will encourage me to do. My first prioity is to get it all painted before I go back to retouch older ones however.
