Hello everyone.

It has been a long while since I have updated this thread. A mixture of real life and been incredibly busy has prevented me from painting as much as I would like too. However, it has also given me an opportunity to reflect on what it is a want to achieve.

I recently moved house and had a huge clear out. I used this time to structure the lightning hawks. I did this by seeing which models I physically have and placing them into different companies. I have ended up with 5 separate companies and a guard support force to paint and build.

I will cover each of the companies as I paint them. My friend is kindly writing some fluff for me so each squad/charactor will have their own back story.

Firstly we have 1st Company: Veterans.

Bold Items have already been painted.

Consisting of:

1 Command Squad - Damocles Rhino Support Tank (painted bar one vet)
1 Chaplain


Vanguard Vet squad (5)
Sternguard Vet Squad (5)
Venerable Dreadnought

Terminator Squad (5)
Assault Terminator Squad (5) - Achilles Land Raider Support Tank

2 Veteran tactical Squads (20)

I am still deciding wether or not to paint up some rhinos for the tactical squads.

So thats the first set of models I will be working through, I currently have 2 squads of tactical marines sitting on my desk waiting to be painted. See some of the photos below for the chaplain I finished earlier today.

Cheers dude

I am currently painting two tactical squads of Space Marines and thought I would share my painting process with you all. I stick to a pretty standard process when painting all my models which I have found to be very efficient.

I use this method when I am painting single miniatures, large models and multiple models as I find it saves me a lot of time.

I started with two squads of tactical marines that I had part assembled and completely cleaned up ready to paint. I then primed them black. I prime all my models in black, some people prefer white but personally I feel that it adds more shadow and depth later on. (plus it helps that my colour scheme is half black)

I then figure out what my "base" or foundation colours are for my models. for the lighting hawks they are as follows:

Purple foundation paint - armour
Black - armour
Khemri brown / new paint equivalent -shoulder pads, helmets, weapon casings, seals, cloth.
Snakebite leather - shoulder trims, sgt and character backpacks, chest pieces, some weapon parts.
Flesh paint - skin tones
Adeptus Battlegrey - any metallic surface. (I use the Non Metallic Metal Technique)





When I get home at the weekend I will be adding the washes to the models and then move onto the detailing stage.

The chaplain looks great! Are you going to add text to the purity seals, or just leave 'em as is?

Fantastic work LTP. I wish I had half the skill you have with a brush.
