I, Brother Syth of the Index Astartes, vow on the honour of my Chapter the Imperial Fists to paint and present at least a 5 man squad of Assault Terminators, 5 scouts with sniper rifles and an Iron clad dreadnought on or before the 31st of March, 2012. I promise to provide at least two WIP updates, preferably with pictures, in that time. I vow that if I should fail, I will provide the Librarium with an article and wear the Signature of Shame until my penitence period is done.

This is the first time that I'll be undertaking this challenge, so I thought I'd start straight away!

Here are my initial units to paint, all assembled and partly primed.

And my progress so far on 2 of my scouts.

Any c&c welcome.

Finished the first two scouts of the squad. Think they turned out alright. Hopefully the next three will be just as quick!

There's no reason why not. Just so happens none of these models have the aquila on them, so that's handy!

Hoping to get the bulk of the remainder of the squad done tonight, depending on how the kids sleep...

I love your Scouts mate ;) I also much prefer the old metal models to the new ones. Though I'm not old ;)

Looking forward to seeing this all finished before the end of March :P

Thanks Ludovic, I'm also looking forward to seeing them complete (if I can).

Here I present the first 1/3 of my vow. A scout squad with sniper rifles. Had a god a freehanding the chapter badge, and I know its not great, but it will serve till I get better and doing that kind of thing. The camo seems to work for me, though in the past I have had camo work too well, and I've left models behind in terrain, so hopefully the same won't happen here!

Anyways, here they are. Working on my Ironclad now.

Just curious where you got the scouts. The BA ones look like some I traded away a while ago.

Metal scouts do look so much better than the current ones. It's the heads I don't like on the plastics and the metal ones have so much character in their faces. Maybe I should start chopping heads...

Wow, thanks for the support guys!

@vharing The BA scouts were pilfered from my old Blood Angels army. The rest procured from ebay awhile ago.

Well I have a small update, my Ironclad. Finished the yellow and now working on the details. Let me know what you think.

Nice work brother, a very well done yellow :D

The details will be painted in gold or with another colour? Like silver or white for example..
