I did that with one of my scout bikes and it looked pretty rad, just one guy going for the business.
This is something that I've considered. Let's face it, it's going to have to happen someday, but I'm going to try and do that in a different squad. I'm trying to make the entire 10 man squad interact with each other. So I'm looking for something stationary for the next 4 men.

I think you might have just suggested the idea of the century. I've already built the next bike, so I won't be able to do that to this one, but I WILL be doing it on the next one.

I'm taking this idea too, but that will be another squad.

I like this idea too.

I'm writing all of these down and putting them on my pinboard, so that I don't forget any of them. You will be seeing all of these things in time.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAnywho! back to updates. Let me introduce you to chaplain Sipian:



I had already painted one of these guys when it was first released. I rushed it though and was never particularly happy with the outcome. I started this particular incarnation of him about 2 years ago, but never got around to finishing it. I got a bit bored of painting blue and white guys yesterday and dug this model out of my 'to do' pile. Please ignore the bone colour, it hasn't come out too well in the photo. It does actually look a lot nicer in person.

How about an unhelmeted dude shielding his eyes looking in the distance?
Maybe another could be taking cover being the bike?

He does, but I intend to give him a prettier one to run around with at some point soon(ish)

This has given me an idea. I'm going to have a tech adept changing the tyre, while the marine guards him. This way I get to paint a bit of red too.

And now to updates:

I've been busy this week with a bit of this and a bit of that. I've had multiple appointments and I had to go raiding on WoW. I have been busy with the painting too though.



I've finished 2 guys from the assault squad, the second one will have a decent base, but I'm waiting for glue 'n stuff to dry first. 2 more to paint and then I think I'm going to have to pick them up a drop pod to harrass people with.

As well as painting the assault marines, I have been touching up the paint on a model here and replacing a model there, but nothing I really want to show in this log if I'm to be honest.

[man i am so jealous of your clean lines... i couldnt paint a straight on a peice of paper with a ruler![QUOTE]

On stuff like LR you could run a strip of tape down the paint line, then trace along it.

eep!! 5 days since my last update. I have been lax

Unfortunately, the reason I've been a bit lax on my updates is simply, I haven't really done anything that I can show you. Well, until yesterday that is. I've picked up another droppod for my collection of deepstriking doom.



Although this kit is a PITA to clean up and build, it is fast becoming one of my favorite GW kits. So far I've painted all the metal areas. Its been nice just smashing paint onto a model for a change.



I'm aiming to get the base coats on for the blue and white tonight, but that all depends on whether I end up getting some gaming in. After I've basecoated it, I'll be leaving it for a while, so that I can finish up the combat squad that I'm about 8.53% of the way through. After I've finished the combat squad, I'll finish the drop pod, then I'll go out and buy the second combat squad. Well, thats the plan anyway. But as with all of my updates, you'll probably see all sorts of stuff before I actually get that lot finished.
