Very good work! The camo is spot on, and looks really good with the bases.

Thanks guys :)

 

Progressing nicely with the 6 figures for the HW squads but I don't think they will be ready by the weekend.

I will post photos of how far I have got on Fri/Sat.

That camo job is very crisp looking- great work!

Unfortunately I hit a block on the HW teams - I had not base sprayed everything dammit!
 

 

I did this guy instead.

Cool, that's 474 guardsmen left to paint! ;)

 

Joking aside, the army is looking really good, and I love the camo scheme.

Slowed down a little with the next six (3 Autocannon HW squad) due to a side project of Xenos (tau XV88 battlesuit).

 

Back to normal soon.....

1 Kroot Shaper
44 Kroot
8 Kroot Hounds
3 Krootox

 

The Tau where my first 40K army and have taken a bit of a sideline recently but no more (insert insane laughter here) and the masses of Kroot where a phase I went through msn-wink.gif .

 

There is a backlog of Tau alongside the DA and IG and Tyranids and some WHF I still have laying around gathering dust.

 

Damn you Ebay!!!!

I know the feeling. I've got a stack load of GotC to paint still, about 750 points of Orks, and plans for an Alpha Legion army (about to finish painting the first 400 points or so). Add to that the Ogre battalion + others (4 Leadbelchers done so far), and the 100 or so dwarfs to paint (picked up for £13 on ebay!), and the 2000 point High Elf army, I could be painting for the next 5 years without buying a single model! :)

Cheers Kierdale and facmanpob :)

 

The next project is to have the following complete by end of Mar...

Company Command Squad


Company Commander
Assault Grenades; Flak Armour; Refractor Field; Bolt Pistol; Power Sword

Veterans
Assault Grenades; Flak Armour; Lasgun (x3); Medipack;
Regimental Standard; Vox Caster; Grenade Launcher (x1)

Bodyguard x2
Assault Grenades; Flak Armour; Close Combat Weapon; Laspistol; Look out - Arghh!


Platoon Command Squad


Platoon Commander
Assault Grenades; Flak Armour; Plasma pistol; Power Sword

Troops
Assault Grenades; Flak Armour; Lasgun (x2); Medipack;
Platoon Standard; Grenade Launcher (x1); Sniper Rifle (x1); Vox caster (for looks only)


Note: this is not my ideal kit list but I am limited to what is in my bits box - if I find anything more interesting it might sneak into this project

Once these are done I need to make another 10 man squad to have a legal HQ + 2 troops list..... then the Valkryie need some work

 

Still have 35 of the Mantic "Elysians" to do after these :(

What did you use to make the sand bags? They look really good.

Thanks but I cheated ;)

 

The sandbags are from Tamiya

 

They are 1:35 scale - so slightly too big but the price was great and you get 48 individual sandbags to build in any formation you want.

 

I used 8 on each base but you could use as many as you want.

 

The gaps are filled with sand  which has been washed in a brown acrylic and dry brushed in bleached bone.

 

They also do other items like brick walls and jerry cans.

Indeed it is! Tamiya make some great products...... I wonder if the sandbags would look good on a Predator?

Your commanders are getting a little slash happy with the powerswords there. :P

 

The very awesome powerswords, I might add.
