Evening everyone.

Over the past weeks I've been working on a project of Imperial Fists from the Heresy era. Previously I've shown some vehicles but these are the main bulk of infantry.

So far nearly everyone has all the basecoats done.

This chap is to be a sergeant of a tactical squad.collage_20150614190204493_zpscvjqblta.jp

And there's 30 breacher marines as well

Sorely missing working on my Iron Warriors but these are fun.

I'm not trying to stop people taking Tactical Squads.  Far from it.  I'm actually genuinely wanting to find a situation where I'd be better using Tactical Squads rather than Scouts, because god-dammit, nobody plays Space Marines to use bloody Scouts!

Nice tone on the IF's. Airbrush or Rattlecan?

Sorry didn't see this before. The yellow is Vallejo Model Air Gold Yellow over white primer. Shading is Vallejo Game Air beasty brown applied with an air brush and selectively.

Moving onto the stage that I find very nerve wracking. Weathering. Intentionally messing up a nice clean paint job. Think its paid off.

Getting there now onto the details. There's a few bare heads, snapped a couple of shots of my favourite. I do love this sculpt.CameraZOOM-20150702212745849_zps5jealvutCameraZOOM-20150702212604140_zps8hg123tw

Really impressive work mate, I think the weathering has paid off too! I love the skin tones too.

Thanks. I'm always nervous about the weathering.

He now has a body! Ready for final matt varnish so some parts appear glossy. Also can people give me some feedback on the photos? Trying out different backgrounds. I always use my phone it takes great pictures but the background colour seems to really affect the brightness of the pictures.

Very nice! Awesome paint jobs and weathering effects! That breacher line up is definitely menacing.

BIG update time. These guys are so very close to being finished. I totally forgot the banner for each squad. D'OH! But otherwise I give you a lot of pictures.

Start with the big guy. Contemptors are fun to paint but a pain to stick to the base!

Damn, that is a fantastic golden-yellow! Very nicely done. All your models are great but my favourite is definitely your Commander, that seasoned-looking Sternguard head is just so fitting for a grizzled old officer and looks right at home on that Masters of the Chapter model, it's the Master of the Fleet one right? The one with the Thunder Hammer on his shoulder?
