I know double post but needed to break it up.

I bought the battle force a long time ago but could not make an army out of it, with my list fleshed out i could assemble my guys. I ordered 3 Sentinels (came as a package of 3, only built 2), and HQ box set as well as another troop box.

For my lists i need 45 models and 2 sentinels, not bad for 400 points.

So my list is now assembled and primed and i have chosen my colors, codex grey, with emerald blue shoulders and helmet...unsure of what color to make the guns though.

so here are some pics of my WIP,

alright Not sure why but the really black guys primer is still a tad wet so they look a bit glossy. the leman came with the battle force so there it is. the conscripts are on the left and freshly painted. too there right is the HQ junior officer. from there the autocannon squad and bolter squad. in the back are 2 sentinels with some extra models behind them(medic, melta standard bearer, las cannon team) some of the guys on the right are painted grey on the pants and shirts the other grey looking part is an odity of the camera. the bases for example are all black...

So there we go, my army
i go tomorrow to play my first really need tactics at this point.
basically hope to deploy in a good firing lane with my 2 main squads. conscripts in front of them backed up by my HQ. sentinels up the side to shoot what they can and get side armor hits if there are transports. will have to learn to assault with my HQ. So any tips would be good. SO please post away tips and thoughts.

Hope to add a battle report soon.

Its good too see the guys in the plastic so to speak. Nice force to be starting off with Morgal.

Would it be possible to see a closer picture of the chaps that you have started putting the scheme on to?

the 4th a 5th picture have the color reasonably accurate when i tried to take apicture the color just came out white and no flash simply did not work.

the color is codex grey mixed with some black as i was hoping to layer on top of that with just codex grey then highlight with codex grey+white.
but i was not happy as it did not work as the lighter color went into all the folds and the high points remained darker..the opposite of what i was going for. So will do some more testing on some test models before i continue painting. hope to get some advice while there today as well. Also the batteries in my camera died.

Not trying to be a prick Morgal but I have moved the actual list questions to the Army Lists forum. The forums/threads in this section are for the actual modelling and painting aspects of army building.

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?
