To start things off:
I, twofour878 of the Black Templars, vow on the honour of my Chapter to paint and present at least 10 Neophytes, 10 Initiates, 1 Rhinos, 1 Attack Bike, and 5 Terminators 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.
Now that that's done with.....
I recently unpacked and started playing 40k again after a hiatus of about 10 years. I really like my Iron Warriors but have decided that I really wanted to start a SM army too. My obvious choice was the Black Templars because, well, they're awesome. I also really wanted to improve my painting skill as I'm a slight perfectionist and if I'm going to field an army I want people to be at least mildly impressed with how it looks arrayed in front of them (I don't need any jaws dropping, just good tabletop quality).
As a reference point I have some pictures on Dakka under my profile. The Iron Warriors are what I painted before I started learning and the Templars are what I could do after I started doing research and watching tutorials to improve me techniques and tools.
Here's a link to my gallery http://www.dakkadakk...ser.jsp?u=51134
Now as I said I wanted to improve so my goal with this thread is to make something better than what is already posted in my dakka gallery. I will post up as many pics as I remember to take along the way and would really appreciate and C&C you guys could offer.
I will be getting starting pics up when I get home from work in the morning and then this race will be off!
