I can definitely see an improvement in my painting ability from my first Rhino to the second. Getting slightly better at painting chipped and weathered paint, freehand and decal application.
As always, any comments and/or tips on how I might improve are welcome. Thanks for checking out the growing forces.

Working on some assault terminators with magnetized arms. These guys were time consuming to build, but have been a blast to paint so far.

These Assault Terminators are really coming together nicely. I decided to try a little freehand lightning on the hammer heads and the shield edges. Soon, I will get their bases put together using cork, flock, and some extra bits.

Those termies look great, very nice work.

The lightning is very well done and fantastic attention to detail on the line work for the half/quad colours on the helmets.

Dude you are an unbelievable painter, your squads look really nice and cohesive. Now for my 2cents..... the first picture I saw of your marines does not do them justice. After I got passed the first pics I was like whoa what the heck this guys the fastest learner I've ever seen.... then I realized you just had a bad pic I think. Other than that those landspeeders are phenomenal, o really like the use of the white eagle transfer that's cut in half. And the freehand work on your rhino of the scroll was impeccable, and the interior of the radar and buttons looked like an eavy metal work. Beautiful job.

Thank you, Varakir! glad you liked the halved/quartered heraldry on the helmets.

Thanks, man! and I appreciate your "2 cents" about the first few pics. They do look pretty mediocre by comparison. Most of the first page is WIP shots of minis that have been subtly touched up over the last year or two. Truth be told, I got a little better at painting, but a LOT better at photographing miniatures since starting this Plog. Now I always use at least 3 different light sources, including one full spectrum light when I shoot. I also digitally adjust the exposure, shadows, highlights and color balance after the fact to help make the detail more visible. I might edit my first post with a newer photo just to convince more hobbyists to look over the rest of the pics in here, but it's also nice to just keep an unedited record of my humble beginnings.

Got the Termies on cork bases! I've also flocked them and started painting them up already, but I don't have a pic of that just yet.... Check out the "V" on some of them, denoting the 5th squad of the 1st Company.

Got the bases painted! I'm on a roll, today. Thought I'd show the back of the squad this time for variety, and to prove to the Internet that I actually painted back there. ;-)

Man... oh man.... wow.

Overall, amazing, but those helmets are just... godly.

Agreed, they are looking fantastic, although I do have a smaller question (just note that it is not a complain of any kind) - how come their helmets all have different patterns (and not just the sergeants)?
