Tank Action

A double post today, I have been fairly busy but not massively, anyway, I took a break from painting foot sloggers and attacked this with a brush. Not a great idea for a company that I a making for boarding actions but I reckon I can find a ship big enough to drive a Land Raider along.

There will be some hazard stripes on the front here
This is all that is left of some more ambitious free handing but ultimately disastrous. I will just stick a name banner on it and leave it there.
This side was a REAL bugger and is still a bugger. I think you get the idea though....

C&C welcome as always chaps.

Tactical Squad

I've been a bit (massively) lax of late when it has come to updating this blog, though I have been doing so for my B&C thread. Anyways, on to the space marine porn:
These guys still need a fair amount of work but the a few more colours and I can start with the washes and then highlights.

Wings of ????

Well, I'm finally back from my tour of the souther hemisphere. Have been home for a week now and just about become accustomed to the chilly weather (it was quite a shock when you consider I was sunbathing two weeks ago).

Anyways, I have managed to get some paint on a few Sanguinary Guard chappies this week.

I do need some help with them though, I am not sure what colour to make the wings. I would have initially thought black and white but I feel it would be too much. I am personally tending towards plain white or red but want to hear what you lot think.

Assault Squad Done

Here's the photos of my assault squad. Haven't had much time for these dudes recently and am off on holiday next week so nothing else will get done for almost 2 months.
Comments and Criticism welcome as always.

Assault Squad WIP

Bases next and a few gems, but the Scottish assault marines are finished.

Also and because I can, some Force in Progress photos:
The third company, 30  tac marines short.

First company, was going to just get a battle company but things are getting out of hand.... I think I have an addiction.

More Bloody Sanguinarians! (pun intended)

So got some mini golden boys on the go. These will make up a Sanguniary Host for apocalypse. The whol force I am doing is meant to be one anyways.
You might recognise them if you have read my B&C thread. The guy one in from the right has gone through a few incarnations before I got him to this state and he looks much better now.

What were my void assault marines, they have been requisitioned for the good of the chapter

These guys are meant to look like Sanguinius as he appears on the SG bpx's flag.

And finally some vanguard vets that will probably get some halberds as their weapon of choice. They are bad ass enough to kill a dread so the bases will all  be similarly themed. That and I am lazy and the two arms were the easiest thing to pin them too. That's what you get from ebay bargains, why are the slots always cut off.
That's it for now, more stuff in progress which I will post later this week. In the meantime stay emotional and stuff, just like true Lamenters.

Squad Comp Squad Done (Try saying it quickly)

A group shot
                                                        And a few selected individual shots.
Free handed Chapter Symbol:
That's the lot. Now I can get back to painting the rest of my company now I have been suitably distracted by this lot.

The Sanguinary Termies are getting closer to being finished.

The fists will all get red on them, concious of wanting them not to look like a nasty accident at MacDonald's. Here's one guy with fists done (mostly)
And from behind

I have also tried to get a heated metal effect on the power weapons that these guys are carrying. In real life it looks like this:
On my guys it looks like this:
Not perfect but I am fairly happy with the result.
That's all for now folks.

Something for the weekend.

So, there has been some life aboard ship this week. A bit more on my Sanguinary Guard Termies:

 A lot of ebay action too, I just can't help myself. These guys will be the basis of one of my regular sang guard squads.

 A forge dread. Needs a lick of paint in the correct colours obviously.
 Assault termies, they were yellow, what can I say.
These is not an ebay purchase. This is my bro's Howling Griffon chapter master. I offered to do a new version for him, He said yes. Think it will keep me occupied when I've had it with painting yellow..........bugger.

Chequers chequers chequers.............

Getting a bit fed up with all these chequers. Not quite sure where to go with the paint job now, any suggestions?
I was thinking have the left leg yellow and not chequered and then have the left kneepad with a red stripe on it alla lamenter helmets.

Sunday, 10 July 2011

A lick of paint on my Sanguinary Guard Terminators this weekend. These guys will either count as regular termies or assault termies (depending on how I'm feeling). There will be a lot of chequers as demonstrated by first guy in from the right.
