So happy to be a part of this community. Y'all are way to kind. Feel free to give me tips and suggestions. So I was able to complete the Fusion Eradicator (I still have to matte varnish it).

Enjoy:

Amazing work R'alai! You're putting humble painters like me to shame!

 

~

 

After some frustration with my Army Painter rattle can, I've given up and purchased an airbrush for priming/basecoating. Unfortunately some of my airbrush paints I ordered to go with it have gotten held up in shipment, so I'm still waiting on the paints I want to basecoat my armor with.

 

In the meantime, here's some quick WIP photos. Got some cleaning up (which I noticed taking photos) and basing to do.

Very nice Melete! The icy blue goes well with the red. 

 

Well I've finished my first vow!!!

The Kroot are finished for now so I have to wait for reinforcements.

Here's the last part of my vow:

I've now completed 427pts! I'll probably go for a couple of big ticket items next  (NOT Shas'o R'alai or Vay big though I'm afraid!)

right on, now i feel bad not completing a single model yet for my vow, but the assembly distraction is almost at an end.   @facmanpob interesting color scheme, I do rather like the green sand bags, as it adds a good complimentary color to the red and creates balance to the figures and color scheme. 

 

@elmo man that forgeworld kit is HUGE, and makes the other one look small, whats even more interesting is knowing just how small fire warriors are to the stormsurge.   Man I wish I could get my hands on one of those forgeworld kits but my wife had a fit when I bought a sicaran once, and spent that much into a single kit.   Guess there is a reason I keep most of my hobby expenses off her radar, cause I would be heading for a divorce if I bought one of those big guys.

Yes elmo, most definitely a lot of "Greater Good" is happening here,

On this page alone from Ra'lai to Jud Cottrell and then all the way down to Facmanpob, it's all excellent work wub.gif  it would be a pleasure and i'd gladly play opposite armies of this calibre...that's what makes up most of the fun of a 40k game...not cheesy win at all costs list but fully painted beautiful armies where people cared about what they made/painted and share a common bond with the player across from them in the fact that they love this game and the visual display of their army is as much for their opponents enjoyment as it is for their own and the pride in what they created...

well done to all that are painting units and even new armies for this the ETL-VI 

you have sparked enthusiasm in me with all your efforts thumbsup.gif 

 

Cheers, Mithril

A bit earlier than usual - I will not have the time to update later today...

 

THIS IS THE CUT-OFF FOR THE WEEKLY UPDATE - EVERY VOW OR COMPLETION REPORTED BEYOND THIS POINT WILL COUNT FOR NEXT WEEK'S UPDATE.

 

UPDATED TO THIS POINT!

Sadly no captain, I have completed 1/2 of my Vow. The KX139 Super Tuna Titan is 1900 of my 4000 Point vow. The rest of the Ke’lshan sept up there was painted previously by me.

@shas O R'alai - are they the sticky airbrush decals from fallout hobbies?... i got a Hex one from them...for future T'AU vehicles.

it's going to be a bit of work but boy i reckon you'll knock em out of the park when they're done thumbsup.gif

of more interest ...i see you have some Vior'la T'AU hiding up in the shelves above your new stuff( if you have any could you pm me a few pics of your stuff?...i'm looking for inspiration for my Vior'la tongue.png).

 

cheers, Mithril
