Thought it might be considered a dereliction of duty if I failed to get a WIP up and running for my ETL vow(s).
First 9 grunts completed

Progress 14/5/14

More foot slogging to continue over the weekend. biggrin.png
For the Emperor.

I love it, you can tell right away that they're the Life Guards. Just make sure you give them all the suitable pomp and ceremony :P I'm keen to see all your troopers lined up in their fine colours, keep that paint brush in hand! :D

Love 'em. Will they get support in the form of a similarly painted  Valkyrie?

Brother Paen, with the armoured support i've gone for an urban-camo dazzle colour scheme http://www.bolterand...-wip/?p=3602925.

Not sure what to do with the air support. Was possibly thinking of modelling the Valkyrie colour scheme similar to to the P57's ran by the 8th Air Force during WW2, i.e brushed aluminium with splashes of colour on tail, wing tips and tail.

Made some headway last night, seeing all these completed vows has shamed me somewhat. 5 more grunts in various stages of completeness.

Progress has been painful over the last couple of weeks, (work/life/the distraction of a load of old metal models that I found in my parents loft which I'm currently stripping at work) hence no update in a while.  Photo showing work completed over the weekend. Will add further updates from this week in due course.

That's a good looking Taurox. I'm glad someone in the Imperium has figured out how to put wheels on a truck. Figures it would be a regiment who take their sermons from large dogs and drop horse artillery from aircraft.

Thats what I was going for. The design cue I took for the regiment came from the household cavalry.

I too love the colour scheme.
One thing I would recommend is drilling weapon barrels. It really makes them look better.

Thanks for the positive comments. Picked up a drill last weekend (thanks for the advice tho!thanks.gif ), it made a big difference on the commie model. Just plain forgot to do it on the flamers before I started painting.

Maybe that's why he wasn't trusted with the launcher. Just the ammo. ;)

Thanks for the encouragement! Painting all these layers of red is waring a touch thin, thats what I get for using a old bottle of blood red I suppose. Last little hump to go, onwards an upwards

Been a while since I updated my WIP (might be a while before my next one too as I need to show my Sallies some love). Since the ETL actually...anyway been slow going but finished some armour to add to the grunts above. The camo is so much easier to paint on larger surfaces, the sentinel took an age to paint for its size.

Happy to hear the thoughts of you guys

Good to see you back baz and bearing gifts - the best kind of gift too in tanks ;) The scheme looks great on the Sentinel, so you'll have to paint some more up! Apart from that Sentinels work better in groups :D
