I've been working on trying to get my 2000pt. LoD/Imperial Fist army completed since My son and I took up the hobby last July. I'm making headway but I still have quite a bit left over...

Lysander Librarian
Chaplin on a Bike

2 Sergeants
9 Tactical Squad
5 Terminators
1 Whirlwind

Plus,

Repaint 6 Legion of the Damned Marines

..., So I'm hoping by posting in 'On going projects' I can get motivated and organized to get these guys done.:victory:

Woah. Just woah.... That's - good cod, that looks damn awesome. I'm pretty speechless (it's that good), just know that I think they are totally awesome, in the original sense of the word. Rep to you!

Pics don't do these models justice guys. At all.

Fist, you already know how much I like your models :eek:k:. Glad to see you started up a project log finally. It will be a big inspiration to anyone watching it.

More terms Fist? Tired of losing models to my AP3 bolters :laugh:

I love the poses though, and the asscannons look tight.

Yeah if you're working with plastic. Which I'm not, stupid Daemonhunters all-metal army.
But yeah space marines are very easy to make look cool, using different legs like assault marines jumping legs with normal bolter pose can make a good model into an awesome one.

Lysander Librarian

First snag last night. After a lot of thought and input from Wraith (Thanks bud) I decided on the colour for the inside of his cloak. I used straight ink on white to keep the blue bright but when I went to start building up the colours on top I found the ink just kept coming off! After trying to fix this for the better part of an hour I finally gave up and carefully used nail polish remover to strip all the work I did on the cape and start over. Now I'm up to about 23-24hrs and I'm no further than my last update! :no:

After finishing my force weapon in gold I looked at it and sighed at the lack of originality. (Everyone paints these gold) So..., I once again stripped the paint off and started over. This time I made it look as though it is carved out of bone. Much happier with the result!

Time painting so far: 26-27hrs.

Phew! 30hrs. now and all I have left is the shield. Once I finish that I can start on the base. Time is ticking, though, as I only have 1 week left to complete him.

I think the next tutorial I do will be "How to paint a Librarian in less than 30hrs!" (HeHe)
