Psyker squad looks great, and the SMs are coming on great, but the fact you use shot glasses as painting bases is deserving of rep on its own.

EDIT: Gotta spread some around first.

It's always good to see you deliver on your tantalising WIP shots, Jac. Great job.

Holy shit that's genius! I always use a pint pot but it's a little slim....totally stealing this idea tonight

Vets are looking great and that banner is awesome - i really like the idea of using that psyker as an ordo hereticus as well. I will have to visit more often and steal your ideas

Thanks tor! Means a lot! I was quite nervious about that painting that banner as it's quite plain, I wanted it to come out as looking very simple as well but not looking unfinished, I think the limited palate and the barbs on the black bar do the trick.

Haha thanks Khorne. Somebody commented on that over on B&C, I find them great as they are good solid heavy base, they are hollow so you can your finger inside to stablise it if you are painting on an odd angle and they have the added advantage of being perfect for mixing paints in for the airbrush I cannot recommend them enough. I used to have 5 but 2 seems have to gone walk about which is very irritating and forces me to use paint pots.

Go for your like Varakir, I pick them up from second hand shops whenever I see them, I need to get some more actually as I said above, much more stable than a paint pot. Steal away, that's the log is there for and 90% of my ideas are stolen from somewhere anyway.

A couple of other pictures of the squad:







As a reward for doing things on them and getting them to this stage I allowed myself to work on a purchase I made last week:



One of the FW Renegade Pyskers. I"ve loved this mini from the moment it came out but I've never bought it as the other one that comes with it, while great, is a little hard to make fit in any of my forces. However last week this one poped up on the local auction site so I grabbed it (ended up paying a little more than I should have but anyway). The only thing that I needed to do to it was remove that odd thing by his neck (which I have never been able to figure out what it is and the Chaos Star as even for a radical =I= it's a bit obvious.

So after a bit of cutting, scraping and dremmelling this is the result:


On his base:



And here he is with the other minis I am amassing for the Radical =I='s force:

Anyway hope that's not too wanky for you.
I tend to mix in different colours to add tone and then just build up from there .

I am in exactly the same boat as you btw. Been collecting for about 10 years and never finished an army. I don't play and I have few friends who do. I just aim to finish units and then work from there. Lately I have organised my forces and structured them for the first time so I have a goal to aim for.

Btw wanky is the best saying ever lol.

Haha very soon you will be in the same boat as me then: 4 or 5 different forces on the go with grand plans for all. Get the feeling of being overwhelmed by it all sometimes, at the moment I'm feeling very swamped.
