|Tugger||Not trying to throw some criticism at you at all, just wanted to say upon zooming in the picture, there are a few spots on the rocks/sand that didnt get coloured. Other than that, looking good!|

Too much crap happening this month, but I almost have the Darkshards done at this point. Just got to finish up the skin, a few details, and the basing.
Here is the work in progress:

Added some rough grass shoots to the base, I like the overall effect.
Started working on the next bolt thrower crew...side by side comparison of the minis after base coats, but before the green wash...amazing what a different the wash makes.
Also sat down and got base coats on the darkshards. Pics when they are closer to done.

Finished the Bolt Thrower and Crew. Overall I like the look and the color scheme, I think the Basing needs something more. I just put down some sand and rocks and then washed/painted them black with some drybrushing. I need to bust out some weedy brown grass tufts or something to give it that last push I think.

|Jacobite||Either or really. I think both would work the way I see it is that the tanned leather is human skin. But that's just me. Nice work.|

Here is my test figure for the Dark Elves, one of the Bolt Thrower crewman. Let me know what you think of him overall. My wife thinks I should nix the tanned leathers and just go with black leather.

|iamtheeviltwin||This and my Harlequins are going to be my army painting challenges for this year. Last year it helped me fill out the Empire, a great motivational tool.|

|SwedeMarine||Toss them into the Army Painting challenge. It might be a good way to keep you on track to having everything painted. Ive gotta show my Lizards some love as well. I havent finished a single model for them. .|

Summer brings the new Fantasy Escalation league and since my Empire Army is at a nice place, I decided it was time to bust out some of my other unpainted figs and do a different army. This time it will be Dark Elves, I picked up a pack of Warlocks to go with my older figures. Still have a few more bits to put together, but I tacked on shields and such to get a look at my first 800pts (the first month's point level) as a group. Here they are, hope to get a test model done this week.
Going for a mostly MSU-style magic and shooting heavy army. The first 800 includes 2x 5 Dark Riders, 5 Brolocks, 15 Crossbow, 1 Sorcerer(ess), and 2 Bolt Throwers. Everything either shoots or tosses magic.
As for color schemes...I am thinking about going with a Blueish or Greenish highlight color over the dark armor.
**Edit** - I haven't completely forgotten my marines, but honestly I hit a wall with them for now and I enjoy the square base painting much more, so the marines will get finished...eventually
