I'm taking these to a local tournament on Saturday so I'm trying to get the last few parts of the list finished off/ up to 3 colours in time for that. I'll post some pics when they're done and try to get some in game shots aswell.


Here's the list of steps involved for painting the armour for those that were interested:

Thanks very much for posting that recipe AlexHeap. Some painters dont like to give away their instructions like you have there good sir.

Good luck in your tournie! You deserve a win or at least a cookie.

@furryblueelf : It's no problem, I'm always happy to share my techniques.

Here's a shot of the army pre-tournament:



Not everything's finished but I'm pretty happy with how it all looks together. There's a few sneak peaks of other units I'm working on in there aswell.
