Cheers mate!

Well, first off, I finished the test base as well as getting some paint on the veterans' bases...







I'm really quite happy with the result. It takes some extra time, but the end result is more than worth it, in my opinion. This will definitely become the basing technique for my entire army.

There is larger news, however...my first ever commission arrived! Haven't had the camera around, so I've only just got some pics (the package arrived a day (or two?) ago). No group shot yet, I'm afraid. This, however, is my progress thus far...





And a few closeups:











I'm fairly happy with my work thus far, though ultimately it is, of course, up to the client. I will say that they look less chalky in real life. I took it easier on the highlighting this time around; I think they're turning out better than the test model. I've got the arms for all four bodies undercoated; they'll be painted tomorrow.

Slow progress thus far, but I'll have the house to myself for the next four days...definitely some time to kick production into gear! So, that's my project status for the moment...C&C welcome, as always! (especially from you, 32BitHero )

Two down!





Apologies for the lighting in this pic; it makes it appear as though I've smeared gold paint all over one of the bolters...this is most assuredly not the case.

I found a couple details to fix on these guys, so they're looking pretty good now...the transfers came out much better than I expected.

Also got at least some work done on six more, so production's on the rise! Comments welcome, as always.

Yeah...me too

Unfortunately, it's pretty well on hold at the moment...my army for 'Tale of Two Gamers' will be my Storm Guard, so the Inquisition will have to wait until that's squared away, I'm afraid.

Well, lack of updatage is for two reasons...one, I've been waitin' for my thousandth post! It's only proppa it be on me own bloody log, yes? Oh, and second, I spilled my pot of black paint. It all came out. Many words were emitted, most of which aren't appropriate for inclusion in these fine forums. Suffice it to say, I was not amused.

That pretty well precluded painting work on the Templars, so I went about prepping the untouched models for paint. That work's all done now. And I also managed to scam a pot of black from my one and only buddy who's into the hobby, so I'm proud to report that work can now continue!

Only problem...football camp starts in 3 days. Bugger. Ah well, wagons ho!

So the Templar commission will be the main thrust of my work over the next couple days, as I prepare to move back into college.

And finally, enough with the typing, I hear you say! It's your thousandth post; where be the pictures?

And I respond, hold yer bloody horses, here they be...



The newest batch of recruits for my Storm Guard; two Dreadnaughts, five Terminators, and my former Veteran Sergeant, who will henceforth be a Captain, and of course be repainted to reflect his promotion.

And a veteran with paint on 'im...










And he shall be known henceforth as Most Revered Veteran Brother Studs McStudly...

Mmmkay, that be it for now. I'll definitely be putting up some more shots of newly completed Templars in the very near future, so stay tuned!
