The paint scheme and execution so far is excellent, and the use of womble helmets is beyond wonderful for me - this is exactly what I want to do but using Anvil Industry embiggened exo chaps.

Keep up the good work :) What's up with Warsser? I mean to visit them more often.

Thanks Ragsta.

Yeah I dunno what's up with Warseer...they updated something and it went down again over Yule but it seems to be working now. Sadly it seems to be getting slower over there. I think they could do with streamlining the ton of sub forums they have.

Over a month later and I finally finished this chap...


And here is a (very) small group shot of what I've done so far...

I really like the colour scheme, the helmets are cool, and the eyes... Such intense stares!

:D Thanks Bearwoodman. They don't really come alive until I've painted their eyes.

I am really digging the Primaris beakie helmets.

The colour scheme works much better than I thought from the sketch on page#1. I really like that green. Very Rogue Trader. :)

As for Waseer - used to be my main forum for 15 years, but the two prolonged downtimes along with bloody Facebook being used as (less useful) stand-in for forums hurt the site a lot. I still really like the place even though user numbers seem to be low these days.

Thanks Sigur. The green came out darker than I had expected and at first I wasn't too sure but it's definitely grown on me.

Yeah it is pretty slow over there these days, though I still like it. Agreed, FB is definitely not a good substitute; by necessity I have joined a couple of groups there and you tend to see the same questions come up every other week...a forum is much better. Warseer could do with a bit of pruning which should at least help navigating it.

Next guy is built!


I decided to go with the reloading marine this time...I didn't really need to do much beyond scraping off the skull on the helm, though I did decide to carve out a slot in the bolter for the magazine. Hopefully I will start painting this fella tonight and once he's done I only have one more guy to go until the first squad is done.
