A quick update. Got a bit more done so now all that is left is a bit of osl and to smooth out the blade a bit. It is however finished enough for the comp. On the osl, I intend to leave it for a bit until I can decide with the entire army how much I want to do. Same, with bases as I always leave basing till last.


one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Thanks guys, I am happy with it for the most part. I do need to do some more work on the staff though as I am not entirely satisfied with it, too clunky looking to me.

I'm envious of your metallics... the warscythe details especially (the shine along the blade) are shit hot.

Ok in my usual waaaaaaay late fashion, I have gotten around to a further update. I got a month off work so I have been going like gangbusters on these guys. Started off by picking up the megabox a week or so ago to round out the collection. As is stands right now I have the following models:

Overlord
2 of the Barge Lords and an older metal Lord (3 total)
20 new Immortals with Carbines
40 Warriors
6-10 Scarab bases
2 Ghost/Doomsday Arks
1 Command/Annihilation Barge (will do both as needed)
1 Annihilation Barge
6 Tomb Blades
1 *scythe (does both)
1 Triarch Stalker
1 Spyder
1 Monolith

Some of these are new, some I have had for a long time. Old models will be stripped and brought up to the new paint scheme. Here are the pics I have of the army so far. Immortals and Warriors are currently only one model in each pic just to show where they are paintwise.

Tomb Blades - I have 6 total but I mainly use them in a group of 5. Not sure if I will bother to paint the 6th or not.



Warrior - There are 40 of these, 20 as you see here and 20 with a very basic drybrush coat of paint that is getting stripped asap. I am also debating the green rods. I have a pet peeve with the rods as they are obviously unpainted if you leave them and it stands out too much to me so I am thinking of basecoating them as well and hand painting them myself.



Immortals - 20 of these total, all in this current state. Base steel is done and the copper/gold that I did on the lord above has been started.



Command/Annihilation Barges - The black barge also has the big gun available to be put in for a second Anni barge. The bare plastic barge is Annibarge only as I don't ever see myself using two Commbarges at once.



Tomb Spyder - I liked the looks of it better with the gun than without lol



Stalker



Lords



Overlord



Ghost/Doomsday Arks - Again, the black one can be switched out to be a Ghost Ark or a Doomsday Ark, while the base plastic one is Doomsday only.


one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Good to see an update.

You seem to have suffered Tesla damage to the camera though; there is a little blurring places.

Yeah it is just my phone camera, the other one I had died on me.

Here is a quick update showing off the progress on the Overlord, the Immortals, and a Warrior. I am trying to keep the same colour scheme across the army while having each rank down having less of the bronze to show the difference in rank/awareness. Not sure what direction I am going to go with on the body of the guns yet tho.

Overlord




Immortals




Warrior

Well I once again have to state my hatred for Finecrap. Today during gaming, that damn Overlord model broke in two places on the staff and one of the chest ribbon things broke off as well. Honestly, this stuff is just utter garbage. As for the models themselves, I am working on the guns of the Immortals right now and I am currently stumped as to how to do them. I have to keep in mind that I will be doing osl effects as well so I am somewhat limited in my colours.

Right now I am thinking of going with a Tin Bitz base and going from there. I don't want any more copper on them however so I can't highlight it up too far. We will see, I will post a pic when I solve this issue. I also have a further 10 Immortals and a test Warrior drying from the basecoat right now. The warrior is going to have his guass weapon rod painted instead of left bare so I can compare and see which I like better.
