They've been sitting in simple green for about a year now. Should be about time to get them out and start scrubbing.

Oh wow - let me know how well they scrubbed up! A year is crazy, hopefully it makes them really easy to get clean.

 

Cheers for the post GuardDaddy but the old metal Cadians use slotta bases and I'm trying to do everything cheap so no buying bases yes.gif

 

Just one more model to finish off on my other project, then I'll be looking at getting a couple of squads started! If I aim for the basic 2 HQ and 3 Troop choices I think that's a decent beginning thumbsup.gif

I had some steel legion in simple green for I think geeze 2-4 years including two plastic/metal sentinels the old Armageddon ones. Paint was basically already off, was the easiest time I every had stripping models. I love simple green, stuff has never let me down and has never did anything drastic to my models.

 

(For those that consume alcohol btw. If you Mix Jagermister and Mountain Dew together, you get the same color and smell as simple green)

I guess if you have the time then long baths are just the stuff! :D I finished my other project last night (early for the Thursday game which is nice!) so now I can turn my attention to my IG. I will have to do a bit more clean up work with them but I'm hoping to get them based and under coated this weekend. Couple of squads and perhaps two HQ characters I think :)

22 models prepped and under-coated :D I think I'll do the rank and file in batches of 5 - it's funny how when thinking about my plans it didn't seem like a big task but when I lined all the models up I had a different viewpoint :P

Hello again peeps! I've decided I need some motivation to get started: http://www.bolterand.../#entry5326317

 

As you can see I also vowed Celestine and friends, so I think I'll document them here too as I'm not ready to start a Sisters thread yet.

Nothing like the ETL to motivate ;) Don't forget the ETL topic is good for all updates too, looking forward to seeing them come along :tu:

I really love those old models! I especially like the hefty sergeant with the shotgun. Excited to see how they turn out. Definitely keep us all posted.

Cheers! I have started painting the first squad of IG, wanted to pace myself a bit... then I couldn't resist adding the Commissar and Lieutenant as I wanted to get them done! So the first 12 are underway :D

12 models well on the way! I have a busy week so I probably won't get much more done until the weekend now.

Another squad to go but I think perhaps I'll have a break by focusing on Celestine and friends next :tu:

Good to see them done, they've got a great urban theme. The eyes are really good, I wouldn't even attempt to paint them never mind have them look this good :P

Cheers! The eyes are a pain but no-one really looks in such detail on models (especially horde armies like IG!) so you can afford to be a little sloppy sometimes ;)

 

Yes this is a slightly revised scheme from my two original models from IG painting challenges and I'm pleased with how they turned out. They are nice and dark with just a few brighter colours to draw the eye happy.png The Commissar turned out well too I'll have to find another old model to paint I quite enjoyed it.

Great job Arkaniss. I really like the old Cadian models too; I frankly much prefer them to the current line.
