After lurking around on here for far too long I decided that I should participate in the forum for a change! instead of just reading post's. So anyway this is going to be the place that I post work in progress shots and finished pictures of everything I have been working on. The aim is to have one or two completely painted armies that I am happy with. Also with the help of you guys reading this improve my painting and modelling side of things.
I do have shiney model syndrome like alot of people I know in the hobby so expect me to jump between projects quite a lot... expect a chaos space marine army to be added to the list at some point judging by the leaked pictures!
Right then on to business! At the moment these are the things I have on the painting table.
Raven guard Now I have always wanted to have a well painted marine army and the RG have always been one of my favourites. I think Its the fluff mostly and the fact that corax was a bad ass! well when he wasnt being all emo. I got inspired by SCC's log over on bolter and chainsword and decided that the RG would be my marine force. The plan is to have very few if any mk7 marines and mostly make use of the fw kits, I will be using quite a few mk6 marine parts. My thinking is that its just not RG without them also the force can double as a post istvaan heresy army when fw release the hours heresy books.
Eldar The space elves have been my first 40k love for aslong as I can remember. I think I have around 3k painted from when they got released in 2006 everything eldar wise earlier than that is painted quite badly so i tend to just use those guys for bigger apocolypse games. With the rumoured eldar book next year, I plan on re visiting these guys with a new craftworld scheme as gw discontinued the paint I used to paint the old guys in. I have been using an airbrush to good effect for over a year now so I think this would be a good time to try something abit more adventurous. Im thinking the mymeara scheme from fw.
Imperial guard I think ive got about 1750 of these guys and id say that they are 75% all painted not the best scheme or painting but I'd like to get the finished.
Necrons These guys I have 2500 bought and assembled so far. the plan is to take these to the gw event the scaking of gaois secundus I have bought my ticket and I dont actually have a painted army at 2500 pts! scary!
Right down to the pictures! I thought i'd put up a few pictures of the most recent Raven guard.
This is the first squad I have finished, tactical sqd anfarno
here are some member close ups. Even though it doesn't actually look like it these models are highlighted. I wanted to go for a more black look like SCC's and not the grey black that you tend to see around.
And the sqd's transport Rhino
Any comments or criticism would be cool!
