I recently got back into the hobby and have amassed quite a collection due to succumbing to the addiction to plastic crack. I have finally decided that despite how daunting of a task as it is to start painting the critical mass of miniatures, I need to quit buying and start painting (except for buying Blood Bowl box set of course... and maybe just the undead and norse team when they come out...no more forgeworld...must block site).
Well I have started painting my first successor chapter - The Flesh Tearers. I have always been a fan of the Blood Angels, but wanted something a bit more darker and menacing both in character and colour scheme, since I always found Blood Angels to be a bit to vibrant. The fluff around them is great as well, being a chapter that is notorious for brutality whilst being on the verge of a dark fate of either being excommunicated or going extinct.
Now I have always been more of an observer when it comes to these kind of forums, usually trawling through all the great army projects, admiring all the amazing conversions and paint jobs, whilst appreciating and learning from all the discussions about the 40k lore and the games strategy and tactics. But I thought since I have such a big task ahead, with much painting and converting to do, it would be more beneficial and fun to try and share and document my project. I figure getting ideas and feedback would be great when it comes to my direction on the project and helping improve my painting. Plus I have always drawn inspiration myself from projects I have come across, so maybe mine will spur someone else on too. Maybe its a good way for me to reinvigorate my efforts, since I am experiencing a bit of a burnout as of late. A good way of me giving back to the community that I draw from a lot.
As a disclaimer, I am more of a painter and not so much into the table top game itself. Though I am probably going to get into the game after I have painted up the army. Bit of a reverse in the usual way people go about it.
So here is a few pictures of some of the marines I have painted thus far.
Evidently I really need a better camera and more practice at taking pictures. Sorry for the poor quality. Will try get some better shots next time
