Over christmas I got bought an almost entire army. This has now tied in nicely with the start of the LPC so my pledge is to complete 5 palladins, 5 strike squad members and a dreadknight. Although I am seriously thinking of including my stormraven into this as well! So without further ado here's my rather boring progress so far (it will get more interesting soon!)

I've also settled on how I'm going to base these-

And this is my blu-tacked progress putting them together

That looks like a pretty solid beginning. I like these bases. Let's see more!

Cheers for the encouragement so far everyone, much appreciated.

I've made a bit more progress over the past couple of days, getting the strike squad and the dreadknight primed. Can't decide what I want to start painting first. Maybe the hammer dude?

So after a couple of weeks of square-basing I got round to doing some work on my pledge. The result was this chap. My usual technique is to drybrush highlights quickly but I decided to push the boat out with this one and actually paint them on! Works already begun on the 2nd member of the squad.

I got the second member of the Strike Squad finished the other day, was slightly faster than the first and work is under way on the third. Still unsure whether I'm going to be done with all 11 models in time to complete the challenge!

@Stuka06, thanks mate!

@Vulkan454, Glad the time it takes to apply that attention is paying off! The bases are from a local company called Model Display Products. Will hopefully have another one finished in the next day or so.

Another week and another update. This time I managed to speed up my painting process and got 2 chaps finished. Let me know what you think!

Look amazing, the Emperor will truly watch over them in battle brother; how did you do the metallics?

Thanks mate!

The metallics are a basecoat of Boltgun Metal then an all over wash of Badab Black. After that it's a light drybrush with Chainmail. Next it's an Asurmen Blue wash in all the recesses and finally a fine edge highlight of mithril silver.

It's the first time I've ever done anything more complicated than basecoat>wash>drybrush highlight!

Just seen this but have to say you've done a cracking job on these guys. The red really pops against the metal, fantastic stuff! :yes:

@Doghouse - Thanks a lot dude, glad you like the red, really wasn't too sure what to do with it!

@Mithrilforge - That's awesome that you liked the painting the backpacks differently. I've not really looked into actually playing with them yet. I made my list based on whhat looked cool and what gave the biggest variety in equipment and wargear.
