Nobody only collects a small Guard force, once you start you don't stop ;) I like the vehicle camouflage, it makes for a very striking jungle scheme. Post up some infantry shots next so we can get a better look at them! :)

I had the same thing happen. Started off with an allied detachment and then BAM. Suddenly I have a huge guard army. Looking forward to more pictures showing up here.

Here is a little taster I found in a picture album on the phone of some infantry pics I'm going to get for you guys.

Hopefully some will come tomorrow when I play the step son in his second ever game.

Good stuff.
I would recommend some Shades. Whatever the current sepia one is for pink skin, and Agrax Earthshade for brown skin.
Athonian Camoshade is a nice one for green armour, though if money is an issue then Agrax an excellent backup (I swear I get through three pots of that for one of anything else).
For scribblescript I would recommend a superfine drawing pen (I use a 002) and tap it on the surface of the model rather than drawing lines. Many, many small dots make it look more like text.
One alternative that a GD-winner taught me was to cut down a wooden toothpick so it's as fine as you can get it, and dip it in waters down black paint. Then use that to do the many, fine dots. Takes a lot more patience but it looked finer and better than the pen.
Lacking such time or patience, I use the pen. ;)

Thanks for the tips. I will try these out once I get a pot of shade.

And I will try again with the map/notes.

Well the painting started this evening and I am happy with the progress and have broken the back of them now. Bit more base layer green before washes and dry brushing.

Thanks, I am not interested in the common infantry, and I have loads left. I will not fail the vow though and once these are done then I can do some armour as a reward!

Thanks for the comments.

The snipers are all about the heads to make them individual, and my favourite is the head from the chimera sprue. (On the right of the two i have done).

Cannot wait to get stuck into the tanks, be nice to have some uniformity in the colour schemes. So even the red and grey are going.

It's something I have done for years. Most of my marine scouts are like it, and even in a desert style though apparently they look more like leopard skin. Still made banshees think better of combat all the way back in 3rd!
