I dont have anymore pictures, i left my case at work, but i thought id post a quick update. despite being mildly distracted by genestealers, ive been continuing the TSons.

9 Chosen are made, with 3 ACs, and they look awesome, half half patined, half unpainted.

raptors are basecoated...

possiblythe best update ever eh?

well, what i was going to say was that the Raptors are basecoated, the AC is nearly done.

i'm going for simple and lacklustre in the painting stakes, as i really cant be arsed to try...

Ok, here's a question, do you think you can de-nurgle the Typhus model? i love the pose and head, and he would make a phat sorcerer if the nurgle shit is all removeable...

That would be amazing if you could do it, but it would be boody hard to get all the Nurgle of him.

They are still obviously wip so it is hard to really cnc them fairly. I will say that I think you might have to thin your paints just a tad bit more Tor. No offence meant but these last two pics especially make the paint seem a bit thick.

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?

you're not wrong there, and tbh, i dont think i actually want C&C that much, as by and large i know what's wrong.

I'm a very, very lazy painter, and i'm aiming for a nice 5/10 army. basically i just wnat to finish an army again... but yes, youre right, particularly on the yellow. i blame the foundation paints.

in GW the other day, and i dropped my open case. oops. nevermind, 15 minutes gluing later, we're back on track.

the only problem is that im having too much fun assembling templars at the moment, but i did have an interesting chat with one of the guys in the shop about converting the bikes.

the main problem with the bikes is that they really arent sleek. at all. theyre massive. massively huge.

so i want to taper them down a bit. the theory is that in the wheel gap at the back, we put a landspeeder engine, and some kind of demon thing at the front, so its a sort of demon engine jetbike...

thoughts?
