I'm really enjoying the colour scheme on the tau infantry Wraith. Its a little unusual. Typically people paint the fatigues the neutral colour and the armour the bright colour.

Very interesting...

Yeah Wraith those Tau look great, what kind of greens did you use on the battlesuits and piranhas? Are they GW paints or something else? Very inspiring.

Man yall make me feel like such an amatuer... yall have some great armies / paint jobs.. Personally I just now got around to actually painting my armies.. I've been collecting for about 5 years now and have pretty much ignored the painting side of the hobby. I dont have any photos uploaded other than to the gallery here at HO so Im sorry for just having links to there pics.

Heres my Ultramarines Termies so far.. the rest of my army is still work in progress but I have most of the Tactical marines painted as well as my Company Champion and a few scouts. I have most of my Grey Knight Termies and a squad of regular Knights painted as well but I havent gotten around to uploading pics of them yet. Once all my stuff gets up here to Alaska from Louisiana I hope to start painting again and hopefully get my armies finished before to long. Any comments and criticism appreciated..

Hey, Bishop, that's not bad. You just shoudln't have stopped developing your painting skills. With whatever new army you are going to start with next, make sure to plan a colour scheme that is slightly more complex and challenging than your last one. I'm sure that you will quickly find yourself painting models so good looking that you'll be be totally amazed. Good luck!

85 marines? wow, that's a lot. Personally, I've never managed to paint anything over 20...

Then you'd be a load of rubbish at guard, my army got over 100 guardsmen :so_happy: (at the last count, some may have got nicked at short course:()

That's a lot too, but they are in fact Imperial Guard, and that's a completely different matter. 75 massive iron nails weighs a lot more than 100 matchsticks, if you get the picture.

Paint or Die!

My son and I have entered a 1000pt. tournament at our local GW for this Saturday. When I made my list up I realized that I had a choice of playing a crummy list that is fully painted or making a competitive list with a number of models not yet completed. So, I opted for the competitive list and I am going to try like hell to get it painted by the weekend! Either way I will post a pic here by Friday to show you if I made it or not.:headbutt:

Paint or Die: Update

After a marathon painting session today I managed to complete my Devs. Add that to the scouts that I did on the weekend I now have only my HQ and a Whirlwind left. The problem that I am left with is that I need a day to finish converting the WW and another couple of days to paint it. That will leave 1 day to paint my Lysander Librarian. Thats NOT going to happen! So,... do I enter the tournament with my HQ not painted or do I substitute another Librarian that is painted but not equipped properly?
Help! what do I do?

Have you given thought to a buddy system?

Ask a bud if he would not mind helping, provided he has a steady hand and is not unwilling to drop on the basecoats for your models while you work on the details.

Later, you can return the favor. It has worked successfully at the local 'Paint Nites'.

I like the idea, but for this particular figure (Lysander Librarian) I am hoping to enter it into this Games Day.

well I so wish I could post my armies with pictures but alas I have no camera so if this changes in the near future I will post picks of my 2 greatest armies the dark angels witch is about give or take 9000 points and my tau witch is completely painted they are at about 2500 points the tau dont have the best paint job but the colors I picked mesh really well together and when I went to the last seattle GT I got alot of complaments so I guess I did alrite for a rush job but I hope in the future to have those up for you guys to see.
