It really is amazing to see how far the project has come between page 1 to 14. What are your current plans for the army? Are you just collecting and painting as you please, or are you aiming to achieve a set list?
Keep up the great (and motivating) log, mate.
First goal is 1k points, which I'm closing in on! I need to paint my Death Company Transport to reach that goal (lol, I realy should finish that one).
The next goal after that is 2k points. Which units I do paint is pretty much up to the whims of the Gods. But I'm trying to stick to Troop units as much as possible now (before I get carried away by Sternguards and more tanks). Then again I can't give you any promises, which I guess is one reason to follow this plog - you never know what I might do next.
The final goal can be seen at the very beginning of the thread, I have a list of units I which to add to the army there (which changes from time to time).
Thanks for the +rep and comment.
Some more super work Xeno, they are looking amazing.
Have some more rep if I can dish out some to you. Keep up the wonderful work.
Thank you for the kind words and +rep, Kobrakai. I'm glad to see you continuing your work on the Iron Lords, they keep me motivated to struggle on with finishing of actual UNITS and not just single miniatures.

quick question, where are you buying your apothecary arms?
Thank you for the comment!
And the answer to the question I already sent to you as a PM.
I've been fiddling around with basing, trying to come up with something that's pretty fast to make and looks ok. This proves to be the perfect opportunity to try things out on bases that aren't going to have miniatures on them - in comes objective markers (of which I need at least 6 in theme with the army)!
I had some initial ideas that all of them would include birds of some kind, then I realised that would require way to much sculpting for something not worth any points. Almost every birds needs a nest though...?
I figure that an abandoned Phoenix/Huma Bird egg at risk of falling in the hand of the enemies would make a rather tasty objective for my Brethren:
The look I'm trying to get is "ash waste/desert".
What do you think about the basing? Does it look convincing or is it still to much "badly painted pieces of flock/grain"?
As soon I'm done with the Death Company Squads basing I'm reposting them with fluff on every marine. Hopefully I'll have time to do that tomorrow!
Till next time
