Nice to see you getting started, but try to pace yourself. You've got to wait at least a week between purchases remember. Stupid delivery times.

ok, after ringing the courier company, i have been able to locate my parcel and should be here tommorow. it just happens i have the day of school and the parcel arrives around noon, so looks like lots of progress will be done (mostly de moulding and convertion a scar veteran)

just so i can have a leader in combat patrol

but i will be picking the flashy bits and he will have more gold on him. i will try to post wip pics as i go, aswell as asking tips etc

okay, sorry for not updating earlier, but i have done the
spawning champion, standard bearer and musician,
no they are not finished, they were roughly painted but
i am waiting for the use of washes, so i can do them properly.

i wont be converting a scar vet as the is no flashy bits in the
box. 2 diferent pairs of shoulder pads,4 sprues (8 in total of
shoulder pads) and most importantly, the only decoration bit
is two petrified heads. but anyway on to the pics

Not bad, but not quite up to your usual standard. Adding in a couple of highlights, and using a wash on the fleshy parts should fix the problem though. I think that maybe your a fan of clean lines, no doubt from your unwholesome Tau affiliation. Anyway, I like the colour choice, it just needs something to break it up.

don'ty waorry, i have fixed that problem.

i decided that insted of paint the scales red and main body space wolves grey, i am now drybrushing the scales, looks very good now, of and i have started my second rank, half done, just got to do gold, which is blody easy now, just an undercoat of golden yellow and a topcoat of burnished gold works perfectly, no 3 coats of gold lol

i will post pics of these guys done, proberly around 8ish to 9ish

the reason i am getting so much work done is because the last few days i have not been able to go to school because of a severe cold going round, luckily i can sit down in a thick blanket and only have to move my arms.

hmm some nice looking lizards you have here. i suggest you paint the lizard wolfs gray. wash with the new asurmen blue, then drybrush the scales

oh btw dude rumour has it that after chaos there will be a lizard update too ;)

I am not too keen on the grey skin tones myself. It makes the models look slightly unfinished. Perhaps a wash or a further highlight would do the trick.

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?
