So, as part of the Unforgiven's bid to win the prize this year, I put my name down to participate in the 2012 LPC.

My vow is to paint/build a Company-Master, his Command Squad and the First Tactical Squad.

So, this is the first of my updates for your enjoyment.

This is what I bought today, along with 2 members of the Command Squad and the Sergeant, Brother-Sergeant Uriah of Squad Uriah. The unpainted model is the Company-Master in the middle of building. We are now all prepared for the Vow and we shall do this.

Now a closer look at the Company-Master

be nice, im not the best painter, but I do hate unpainted models.

Great stuff! I like it when DA commanders have a "leader" pose instead of a fighting pose. Also you have a good rate of production there. :) Keep up!

Excellent! Roughly 50% of your vow done already. That's pretty cool! Your Master + command squad look great however the picture is a bit blurred. I really want to have a closer look at all these guys, so I guess I'll wait for the new pics you promised. <_<

Look forward for your tacticals - the sergeant certainly looks the part.

Congrats and keep this pace!

only glad to help!

My only regret was that there were no Combat Squad sets in the store....so I had to pay for a full Tactical Box...

Oh well, good thing I can find use for the other 5 marines :lol:

Well done Brother Sergeant!!! They look fantastic too! Congratulations man!

A small comment: would you consider painting the bases? a single color will suffice - green, brown, grey - whatever. It will add to the overall look significantly!

Congrats again on your timely completion!

I dont really like painted bases...I prefer the black neutrality they can be anywhere on black bases, whereas flocked green look out of place in a city etc. Unless my army it themed, I don't paint or touch the bases, i may re-paint them black, but that would be all. however, I am a poor hand so chances are I would ruin it when I try to paint around the feet :D

I'm a casual gamer by nature, so, I dont have to worry about competitions and the like ;)
