First post on this one, but I've pledged to do the following:

2 Units of CSMs (10 figs each)
1 Unit of Bezerkers (8 figs)
1 Unit of Havocs (5 figs)
1 Unit of Raptors (5/6 Figs)

Just to make it interesting I need to get all five squads done by the month end before I ship out for Canada! I have the month off, but I have loads of packing up to do - Lots of early starts then! :cuss

Today's progress was to make a good start on the Havocs, 1 guy almost done, another about 40% and the rest of the squad undercoated (they are partially assembled). I also stuck th legs for one of the CSM squads to bases to speed me up later.

Almost done, need to paint the base.

Thanks. It's IG support AC but with a shorter barrel, the Sentinel one is a better size, but needs more work to make it into something that'll fit on the shoulder.

Not too much time for modelling today but:

5th man of the Havoc squad, needs base finishing but he's got a nice battered look.

Juts a little update, the first CSM Squad is pretty much done, the Aspiring Champion needs his base doing and then they all need a touch of Dullcote but that's it. I've assembled the second squad today, so hopefully I'll get through these pretty quickly.

You've been busy, they look great.
Have you considered giving them a little Gryphonne Sepia wash in the recessed parts of the metallic bits?
It would give them better definition I think.

thanks, nothing like a tight deadline to make me busy! I tried some sepia at your suggestion, but wasn't really happy with the colouring. That said using my ghetto wash (black paint and Future floor polish :rolleyes:) has really sharpened up the metallics - wierd really black wash on black figures.

No photos of those figures now washed, Dullcoted and packed but some of my Bezerkers' Rhino. Had to order 2 more Rhino's today to avoid paying the extra £2 each that GW will be charging in 3 weeks. Those I will just spray black, desprue them and finish them when I'm in Canada.

Photos are a touch washed out and don't show the subtle hi-lighting. ;)

Overall some great work. Congrats ;) The only thing that doesn't seem right is the limp hand of the first autocannon model. Otherwise keep up the good work.

Nightrunner - thanks - he's a very *nice* Spacemarine! ;) Actually it's a bit of a problem that the CSM sprues have so few decent left arms.

Matt - do you see lines, which models? I spent ages scraping the blighters off, but the drybrushing picks up the vestiges of them.
:P

Did a bit more on the Rhino today, but nothing worth photographing - lots of red! :P

Started on my Skull Champion, he's an optional upgrade for my squad since without him I hit 998 points which is right where I want to be to get some games in.

If I do see molding lines, they seem to be on the inside of the lower leg casing. Might just be a trick of the light, but I'm sure I saw a few.

Either way, your painting is great and I can't find anything to fault you on. Can I get your red recipe? I'm working on some Khorne boyz now :lol:

I probably missed a few, still I'm more of a gamer than a modeller so as long as they look ok at distance on the table I can sleep easy! :Troops:

As for the red, it's nothing special, just the GW paint they suggest for the Bezerkers (forget the name, will check when I go back upstairs) painted over a skull white spray undercoat, and then washed with my Special Wash (Future floor polish + black paint).

PS I'm up at 1:30AM as I've been killing myself on the second squad of CSMs, I hope to have them painted, but not based by this time tomorrow. :Elite:

Sorry for the delay, things became manic with packing up to leave, and in the event there wasn't room for my CSMs <_< so they had to go into storage - dammit. Obviously that means no more updates for which I apologise, I gave it my best shot but just ran out of time.

Anyway here are the shots I managed before I left:
