Nope, not too late. It'll just be tougher

TY! Awesome, then I have a unit of Scouts, a Command squad, and a Tac squad, all representing my own highly customized take on The Raptors Chapter. The few that are more than primed I will be repainting.




Edit 9/29/2015: DONE I said I would do three, and I did.

Command Squad


Catachan Scouts


I couldn't do my tactical squad, bc I want to magnetize them all. I painted a couple of HQs instead.


Pawns betray, Knights die, Bishops conspire, Rooks crumble, and Queens lie. Be wary if you are the King.

Hey everyone,

So I managed to get my guardsmen painted yesterday and based them today:

Made some changes to the sergeant, for some reason who ever I got them from decided to chop his head off, so I cleaned it up and used a head from the catachan command sprue, his chainsword was also broken so I replaced that with a cadian one.


And here is the starter photo for my sentinels, one of them is old and is going to be taken apart and re-painted. The second one is new and still in pieces.


Cheers

Wow, molto swift there Gunslinger! I'll be painting this Avenger Strike Fighter that I've had lying around, and then after it, something else. Something amorphous in my mind as of yet...

So yea, a massive improvement on the last two months, done my primary option in four days.
I'v been having a massive painting boner the last few days so I am going to try and keep going with a platoon command squad with a nicely converted autocannon team in.

So here are my finished sentinels:

I'm really happy with how they turned out. If you look closely you can see that it is a kind of mottled blue armour plating, with a couple of layers of drybrushes and washes.



Overall I think they match the rugged, abused look that I am going for with my guard, with them having been fighting a few year long war over the planetary capital and in all honesty, they are losing.

Fair enough too mate, you've got a cracking pair of lascannon sentinels there, they'll cause some headaches on the tabletop I'm sure!

Thanks mate, I'm really looking forward to seeing how your Avenger turns out, such an amazing model and I'm sure you will do it justice.
