Better late than never - Thanks Captain Semper for the heads up (been away awhile)


I, Elmo9141 of the Dark Angels Subforum, vow on the honour of my Chapter to paint and present at least one 10 man Squad of Assault Marines and a 5 man Squad of Scouts (and maybe a Tactical Squad - but not promising this one ;) ) 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.


I have the models so no delays on this ;)

Excuse the spelling and grammar it's a product of a public education.

Well, Elmo I'm happy you joined in! We need all DAs to come together for this one! Good luck with the vow- judging from your output rates, I feel confident!

The Emperor, in his wisdom saw that Slayer were the heaviest, most intense and badass band that ever was and ever will be, so he ensured that their music survived to the 41st millennium in order to inspire his Astartes when cleaving champions of Chaos into little bits.

Thanks guys

A small update, unfortunately without pictures as my camera is 200km away at the moment.

The plan is to do the Scouts first

this week I will be getting them ready for undercoating and I will post pictures to prove I am not just buying them painted from Ebay ;)

Sat 28th will be spraying day and then I should be done (less basing) by Fri 3rd so photos should be posted the following weekend.

This should give plenty of time for the assault marines ( I am planning on 3 weeks)
and 2 weeks for the Tactical squad which means if all goes well my Vow should be complete by 1st week of March.

Real life might get in the way as "no plan survives the first contact!" :o

Elmo, sounds like a good plan! And with room for error too! I know real life has priority on time management but still, I'm confident here!

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, new recruits heh? Somebody's happy! <_<

Very nice progress Elmo! I think, if you can do this in a week, I'll wager you'll need another one and then you're done! Maybe you'll squeeze the tacticals in there as well!

Keep up!

The first parts for the Assault Marines (8th Squad) are now undercoated. These parts should be painted by next weekend and then I will be undercoating the remaining bits.

These are really cool Scouts. Currently reading the Purge of Kadillus and have fallen in love with Sgt Naaman and Scouts all over again. Here's looking at them becoming Troops again in our next codex :tu:.

Cheers

Imagine what you'd do if not for the flu! :)

So what remains really is torsos, right? And you do not have the flu anymore? OMG, it'll take you what? 7mins? hahahaha!

Good stuff Elmo! keep up!

Hey more 4th Co :) .

Looking good. Aren't you worried you might accidentally get access glue on the painted bits when you assemble?

Capt.S - Torsos, jetpacks and a few arms.

Should have everything but the jetpacks done by next weekend - then jetpacks and startint the Tactical Squad the week after.


Isiah - This will be the 2nd Assault squad for my 4th Company - just a Tactical Squad and finish off the Devastator Squads and my foot sloggers will be done.

I am "normally" very careful when gluing the bits together so overspill is not usually a problem.


Droma - Thanks - yours are looking good too!

This weeks progress saw the remaining undercoated bits painted and everything glued together less the Jetpacks due to large amounts of filling required.

Should finish the official part of the vow by next weekend and then I will be starting the optional Tactical squad.

Here is 8th Squad (Assault) of 4th Company (less jet packs)

Foot slogger wise just the 5th Tactical Squad and the 5 normal guys from each Devastators squad.

I am planning to do the 5th Squad as an add on option to my vow and, who knows, I may even manage the other 10 as well :wub:

Vehicle wise I need 3 Razorbacks/Rhinos for the Green wing and wish list for 1 or 2 Landraiders.....

4 Bikers, 1 Attack bike to finish off the 3rd Raven wing Squad then I really should call it a day :D

Oh and 1 Techmarine

Really liking the poses and the colouring, they'll look even more amazing with their packs on.
