Default Army Painting Challenge - September 2013

OK this is a new Septembers thread.

To celebrate the release of Space Marines, which start witht he same letter as this month I am making this a double entry month.

If you enter 2 units you can redeem one of your alread used month passes. Note you cant get an extra pass if you have not used any yet.

Best of luck.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

My entry this month: a Vindicator.

Second entry (operating in the assumption that the very first month, the squad I posted to the next month only an hour after the first thread was locked ended up not counting, so I'm hoping to earn that back): my homemade Daemon Prince:

Hopefully I will be able to get both my units of Thallaxii done this month...

Although having not yet used a RLC... do I need to?

OF COURSE! As I have a tournament on the 5th of October...!

Here are a few pictures of the first one I have built (packing a Cyclone)- these will be used as Cybernetica 'counts-as' for additional terminator squads - seeing as I already have one, and the Iron Hands aren't supposed to have any... but are known for using Cybernetics and AI units...

Humakt - as I am currently using the Dark Angels Codex, but want to add some Ally units from the new SM Codex - does that count as my 2nd army?

First unit this month will be a squad of terminators. Second unit tbc later on, depending on what I have for free time.

I'll *try* to get a unit of 10 paladins, and a unit of 5 paladin cavalry (or maybe a hero) done!


And then the hero and cavalry (don't know which, if either, I'll get done yet.)

Gonna take a second shot at these guys, and redeem last month's RL card with a Cadre Fireblade, which I will get a pic of later.

EDIT: Finally got around to getting a pic of the fireblade posted.

Question Humakt: I believe I stated marines was going to be my first army and my Harlequins as my second. However, I have never actually painted a marine yet for this and only done the Harlies. So my Question, can I change my "first" army to Harlies and change my "second" army to my WFB Empire?

*edit* - Well at this point better to ask forgiveness than permission.

Here is my first unit for the month, a unit of Empire Archers using the old Battle Master figures. Models are ugly as sin and I didn't clean up my mold lines like I should, but they are table-top ready:



**Edit 2**
Here is my second unit for the month. A unit of Empire Crossbowmen to go with the Archers.



Servants of the Laughing God (Harlequin Themed Eldar Army)
First Eastern Mirage Corps (C:SM)
I am the Evil Project Log (All my work since restarting the hobby)
The Crusade of Morr (WFB Empire Battle Reports)
Dem Bones (Dice Rolling Program)
