Seriously, I didn't think the pics would ever end! Elmo, that's just incredible, all the power to you brother. If anyone can do a full chapter, it's you

DUDE?!

 

Seriously, you must be addicted. A full chapter is just plain insane. I have a battle company with some 1st and 2nd company stuff on the side, 2 assassins, 2 knights and expanding FW support. Target is 12500 points including wargear. Not all of it is assembled, and paintwork so far is just a quarter or so of my points total. But going for a full chapter... WOW!

 

I'm gobsmacked. Lost for words (not totally). As Greenz said, if anyone is to do it, it's you.

 

All of the above is meant as very positive and happy stuff, and I really hope you can pull it off, but the project is just so immense I'd never personally have the balls to begin such an undertaking. 7 companies of guys in green (with some variation based on the look of 3rd and 4th company). It's 700 marines plus command/veterans. Plus any transports and dreadnoughts dedicated to those companies...

 

Think I'm just gonna bow my head and exit backwards, humbled...

 

Regards

Sneaky

You've no idea how close I came to painting the toilet gold and calling it the "golden throne" but thought that might be going too far! :lol:

If I was put in a dreadnought, I would like to have full maneuverability not just waddle waddle shoot waddle punch.

It is a bit tongue in cheek at the moment but I have enough models in the painting queue to do another company and a half so who knows ;)


Just short of rhinos at the moment.

Yeah I always found transports to be rough...on the wallet and due to the fact that they rarely last the battle so my drive to complete them is tarnished

You are a madman Elmo ... a true madman...... I just love madmen!  That collection is just stupendous to behold. No words will do justice to the impact it has on someone looking at its majesty.

 

All I can say is.... Well Done!

 

Praise the Lion and pass the Paint!

 

Full chapter here we come! smile.png

On that note, we expect completion not later then 2-20-2017 (hahahahahahahahahahahaha)

 

Always been a fan of your work both on DA and your, um... other large scale project *cough tau cough cough.  Maybe I should start sub-letting some of my painting projects over to your workbench.

Holy hell, elmo, I spent a good couple of hours looking through those pictures! The paint job is truly amazing, and the sheer number of models ...

 

This is something to look forward to, my man!

I don't know what's more shocking: that I actually own this many DA-specific models myself, or that you have managed to paint all of yours! sweat.gif

 

Either way, you've obviously put in a lot of hard work, and it's great to see them all posted together here. Very well done. biggrin.png

It certainly wouldn't be a waste, but I could rinse an entire weeks worth of likes on this thread!

You sir, are inspiration incarnate!

For the 1st. For Elmo!!!

Wow, that's really an impressive army :)

 

One question; how do you incorporate the Primaris Marines into your Chapter/Company structure? Do they take places of normal marines (so intercessors instead of a Tac Squad for example)?.

Not at the moment. There is sort of a plan to make them part of the 10th but it is still early days...
