Your army/armies (pics are encouraged!)
 
Ahoy, mateys! :victory:

I'm feeling quite proud now. Just recently, I finished painting the final model in my first propper army ever. In other words - I've finished my first army! :biggrin:

(Someone should congratulate me!:wink:)

(Ladies and) Gentlemen, I hereby present to you... The Angels of Vendetta!

(My apologies for the horrible image quality. My camera just isn't made for taking pictures of small things that aren't extremely close...)

1500 points of pure Unforgiven l33tness! As you can see, I have a rather low model count, but that's the whole point - the whole chapter is made up from the veterans who barely survived its near-extinction. This, of course, forces me to play defensive and keep my units close together, but so be it.

Also, notice how the Land Raider isn't all lame and generic like 95% of all other Land Raiders.

All comments would be dearly apreciated. If there's anything you want to know about it, ask all you want.

But I'm not gonna use this occasion to keep rambling on about my own army. What I want you to do, is to present your own army, or more likely, armies. Say something about the fluff behind it, the basic concept, the units it's composed of, paint scheme, strategy and watever else you may want to tell.

Pics of your armies are of course preffered, but are far from compulsory.

I'll be seeing you guys arround.

- Cheers, DME.:ok:

Really? Is it that much anything in particular? Maybe it is, I'm not one to judge. But I thought that the image quality was too bad to see any of it anyways... But yeah, I'm pretty happy with the paint scheme and the overall look of the army...:)

Jacobite 02-02-08 12:36 AM

Again I am a huge fan of your cloth Panda, its really pretty dam good. And your blue is also well executed.

Pandawithissues... 02-02-08 12:41 AM

Thanks jac. I might get back to painting them in the next few weeks. Dissertations in on monday. Almost finished.

Lets get more armies on this thread. I never tire of Skuzzlebumm's pink nids...i'd like some close ups of them.

Woah... one word: BIG! That one hell a lot of models, and I have to admit that I admire you, and everyone else capable, for having the patience to paint up that much. :grin:

But just one question: What are the two models to the left of the dreadnought? Can't seem to recognize them from anywhere, but they look really cool...

Pandawithissues... 02-02-08 01:23 PM

I think they're rogue trader dreads deus.

DeusMortemEst 02-02-08 04:07 PM

My compliments, Wraith. Just gotta love the basing and poses, I had no idea that Tau could look so exciting.

Panda has it right. Both of them are old Rogue Trader dreds I've had forever. The one on the far right is a Furibundus (sp) but I can't remember the name of the on in the middle.

Pandawithissues... 02-02-08 11:12 PM

I'm really enjoying the colour scheme on the tau infantry Wraith. Its a little unusual. Typically people paint the fatigues the neutral colour and the armour the bright colour.

Very interesting...

Siege 02-03-08 03:28 AM

Yeah Wraith those Tau look great, what kind of greens did you use on the battlesuits and piranhas? Are they GW paints or something else? Very inspiring.

Bishop120 02-03-08 05:58 AM

Man yall make me feel like such an amatuer... yall have some great armies / paint jobs.. Personally I just now got around to actually painting my armies.. I've been collecting for about 5 years now and have pretty much ignored the painting side of the hobby. I dont have any photos uploaded other than to the gallery here at HO so Im sorry for just having links to there pics.

Heres my Ultramarines Termies so far.. the rest of my army is still work in progress but I have most of the Tactical marines painted as well as my Company Champion and a few scouts. I have most of my Grey Knight Termies and a squad of regular Knights painted as well but I havent gotten around to uploading pics of them yet. Once all my stuff gets up here to Alaska from Louisiana I hope to start painting again and hopefully get my armies finished before to long. Any comments and criticism appreciated..

DeusMortemEst 02-03-08 01:47 PM

Hey, Bishop, that's not bad. You just shoudln't have stopped developing your painting skills. With whatever new army you are going to start with next, make sure to plan a colour scheme that is slightly more complex and challenging than your last one. I'm sure that you will quickly find yourself painting models so good looking that you'll be be totally amazed. Good luck!

inqusitor_me 02-03-08 02:31 PM

man wiat a few weeks and ill have my 85 marines lol done only 75 more

DeusMortemEst 02-03-08 03:48 PM

85 marines? wow, that's a lot. Personally, I've never managed to paint anything over 20...

Then you'd be a load of rubbish at guard, my army got over 100 guardsmen :so_happy: (at the last count, some may have got nicked at short course:()

That's a lot too, but they are in fact Imperial Guard, and that's a completely different matter. 75 massive iron nails weighs a lot more than 100 matchsticks, if you get the picture.

Paint or Die!
 
My son and I have entered a 1000pt. tournament at our local GW for this Saturday. When I made my list up I realized that I had a choice of playing a crummy list that is fully painted or making a competitive list with a number of models not yet completed. So, I opted for the competitive list and I am going to try like hell to get it painted by the weekend! Either way I will post a pic here by Friday to show you if I made it or not.:headbutt:

DeusMortemEst 02-04-08 03:15 PM

Cool, do that. And good luck in the tournament for you and your laddie!

Damned Fist 02-06-08 03:17 AM

Paint or Die: Update

After a marathon painting session today I managed to complete my Devs. Add that to the scouts that I did on the weekend I now have only my HQ and a Whirlwind left. The problem that I am left with is that I need a day to finish converting the WW and another couple of days to paint it. That will leave 1 day to paint my Lysander Librarian. Thats NOT going to happen! So,... do I enter the tournament with my HQ not painted or do I substitute another Librarian that is painted but not equipped properly?
Help! what do I do?

Hespithe 02-06-08 03:30 AM

Have you given thought to a buddy system?

Ask a bud if he would not mind helping, provided he has a steady hand and is not unwilling to drop on the basecoats for your models while you work on the details.

Later, you can return the favor. It has worked successfully at the local 'Paint Nites'.

I like the idea, but for this particular figure (Lysander Librarian) I am hoping to enter it into this Games Day.

angels of fire 02-06-08 03:04 PM

Don't rush him just get a different not so important librarian and do him instead.

I have a regular SM librarian but in my list my Librarian is in Terminator armour. I don't know if anyone will give me a hassle for this in a tournament? If it's not a problem the I will use him.

The Son of Horus 02-07-08 03:13 AM

I imagine that'd matter in a tournament.

roricon 02-07-08 05:31 AM

Take both and use the terminator one if you're allowed, otherwise use the power armour one.

Darthlace 02-07-08 07:00 AM

I have a large army but as it is unpainted I have posted it under the projects thread

dred73 02-07-08 12:06 PM

well I so wish I could post my armies with pictures but alas I have no camera so if this changes in the near future I will post picks of my 2 greatest armies the dark angels witch is about give or take 9000 points and my tau witch is completely painted they are at about 2500 points the tau dont have the best paint job but the colors I picked mesh really well together and when I went to the last seattle GT I got alot of complaments so I guess I did alrite for a rush job but I hope in the future to have those up for you guys to see.
