Cheers guys!

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away i began painting my Desert Eagles DIY space marine chapter... and finally i can present you with a painted force. This is for a tournament held here in Umeå, in northern Sweden. It's a friendly tournament called the Fancy Fanatic (with alcholic bewerages allowed, catered meals and also a dresscode... so i hope i can squeeze into my suit :sweat: ) You´re encouraged to bring nice list. The limit is 1437p. I don't know why the odd number, but i guess it's to make people re-think their standard lists or something.

So basicly this is (using codex: space wolves) Logan, a runepriest with chooser of the slain, 2 venerable dreadnaughts, a couple of TDA wolf guards, a uniy of grey hunters with an attached wolf guard riding in a rhino, a pair of speeders.

Such a complete and beautiful sight. This is what makes the B&C one of the best boards to go on.

It's armies like this that inspire and I'm glad that I started this hobby nearly a decade ago.

^^^^^ what he said!

This army has been a massive inspiration to me for a couple of years now, so much so I even started a small biker force of my own, extremely small as it turns out, in trying to emulate the detail and quality of your painting I managed to finish a mere 3 models! How you've managed to paint a whole army to this standard I'll never know!

Kudos to you Desert Eagle.

P.S. more bikes!!!

Watching you paint this army has been one of the highlights of being a B&C member, echoing what the esteemed Darth Potato expressed previously.

I do hope that this is not the end though.... :D

Whether the ork crossed the road or the road simply passed under the ork depends entirely on your perspective.

Whatever inspires you, is just the spark. The bonfire that is your imagination must already be there, awaiting that spark. Once ablaze all you can do is feed the fire.

I was going to start my first post on the forums with a wip thread, but never mind :D

I've been a lurker here for just over 2 years and have been following this thread. I was thinking of getting back into painting and your thread is what did it for me.

Absolutely amazing work and very inspiring.

P.S: I really liked your 1st captain :P

the tournament sounds like fun! And no one will notice if your suit doesn't fit, because they will be blinded by the awesomeness that is that banner! Seriously, its outstanding (as is the entirety of your force).

Hell's teeth these are awesome sauce. Love the overall scheme, battle damage, banners and basing. I like the heat glow on the speeders' engine outlets - very creative

Hey, nice painting there. It can be kinda difficult to paint mainly whites, but it turned out nicely. Are you adding more stuff? Many games are around 1750 so maybe another troops unit?

these are awe inspiring models, im amazed and somewhat envious of your talent.

white can be really hard to pull off, yet youve done it perfectly, and the weathering is top notch
