Normally, I'd agree with this, but I think airbrushing is cheating...takes the personal feel out of the mini I think...


Anyway, the minis look alright, for a quick paint job they'll do, which is the goal yes?

from what i've seen of the 6th ed rules the tanks are actually going to be more durable (see second ed rules) so yeah the IG mech list is still going to be awesome, if i'm in a bad mood with my opponent i can field 9 lemons in a 2000 point list and there is no army in the game that has that amount of anti tank weapons :D

Right, I said I was making a drop regiment. I was not Lying. Here's an elysian, showing my Guardsmen how it's done! (The Elysian is a Mantic Games Warpath Corporation Marine, from the box of 20, pretty cheap, just never use them in GW =-) )

Very cool dude, can we see him next to a GW IG person??

Valks are super cool, you can have 9 in an army, not sure if you can split squads of men out over the three transports yet but meh they're still awesome!

You can split a platoon into squads, and add a valk per squad so any squad can be loaded onto a valk. Ill also get the comparison photo

A little W.I.P of my chimera, the reason you see 1 side is that the other isn't painted yet, Also I've attempted some weathering! (Guardsmen are still being painted in parallel to this.)

Also on a side not for the army I need a flyer, just wondered which you guys thought was best out of Vendetta, Vulture, Thunderbolt, Lightning and Avenger.
