Thanks . lol kids rock.

I had a little bit of time this weekend to pick up the paint brush and carry on with the tactical marines.

I also received a nice parcel from wayland games. This will finish off the troops for the 1st company.

Since the last post I have applied the washes to all the tactical marines.

Purple wash - liche purple
Babab Black - Adeptus battle grey
Devlan mud/nuln Oil - all helmets, NMM, shoulder pads etc.
Blue wash - Seals and screens/plasma

I then started to build up the purple:

I then added more layers getting lighter by adding commando khaki to the lichee purple and then the final highlighting was painted with white.

I began to highlight the NMM parts of the marine and That is still WIP.

I am not home for two weeks now but hopefully I will have a lot more time after that to get these squads done and then i can move onto the vanguard vets and other terminators.

Here is a picture of my workspace to finish

Ciao for now
