Finally decided to start a WIP blog here, in the hope that it keeps me painting at a reasonable rate. Going to start with my LPC 2012 vow. So to start with...
I, Excubitor of the Index Astartes, vow on the honour of my Chapter (Storm Hawks) to paint and present at least Ten tactical marines, One Rhino and Three Dreadnoughts 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 will allow me to finish my 5th tactical squad (one marine, sergeant and special weapon already painted from 5th squad), change my 3rd tac squad to las/plas/combi-plas loadout and add an extra heavy weapon option to my painted devastator squad.
Here's what I've done so far (sorry for quality, very new at this!)
Devastator heavies and tactical combi-sergeant
Tactical marines and tactical heavy
Rifleman dread (nicknamed 'Gunny')
that's how all dread backs look atm
Multi-melta/Heavy Flamer dread (AOBR dread modified)
Since taking these I've put Knarloc Green on my tactical marines as an undercoat on the necessary parts.
Also as a note I'm saving up to get the Badab books and a couple Raptors decal sheets from Forgeworld, so most likely for the LPC my marines will NOT have decals added to their shoulders, at least until I get the raptors decals.
