Nice work!
I've only had one Finecast mini so far and bought it myself in the shop so was careful to pick the best of the blisters they had. Still had a little bit miscast but wasn't too bad. It is, as others have said, luck of the draw.
That aside, what are you working on next?

Yeah i think you need to inspect & chose your finecast mini's before purchasing them to minmise casting flaws etc

Did a quick kit bash and finished painting a normal sgt yesterday (normally run 3 tactical squads & only had x2 normal sgts armed with a bolt pistol & chainsword) rest have either combi-weapons/power sword/powerfist etc.

Am doing my best to put off painting these 10 tatical terminators i have made and primed on my paint station but am going to make a start today ;) !

On a side note pre-ordered my 6th ed rule book yesterday & looking forward to what changes it'll bring etc might need to invest in some new minis i dont own to make my army competative :D !

Cheers

Dai

Long time no update.

Been busy adding Heavy Weapons teams to my Imperial Guard army, along with some Aegis defence lines but managed to complete x5 Tactical Terminators over the weekend.

Will post pics of them later today

Also managed to kitbash my counts as version of Captain Sicarius using the new FW mkiv Captain (will post some wip pics of him too)

Excellent job on the terminators! Nice effect on the fists! I think maybe some stray lightning going back towards the rear of the fists would cap them off nicely.

Some great painting skills on display with the Captain here. A quality I'd be happy to achieve one day. :)

Love that captain! The OSL is nicely done, and I really like the detail on his right forearm and the connections to the sword.

So I finally managed to finish the last 5 tactical terminators for my vow last night (will post pics later)

Took me a while after a quick start but I got there

These will be the last additions to my SS for the near future as I'll be working on my guard & pre heresy ultramarines

Thanks for looking

Cheers

Cheers i actually enjoyed painted this army due to the simple paint scheme (which ws less time consuming than others) plus when you add little detials they stand out far more than they would otherwise.

Might add a drop pod or two in the next few months but my other armies are taking priority.

Will be using these of the gaming table definately though

Cheers

Long time no update

Have hardly used this army since my last update as I've been working on historical projects & other bits & bobs

But since GW made the stormraven a codex space marine option it peaked my interest to add some more additions to the silver skulls and start using it once again!!

So on my table to make & paint at the moment is

A stormraven
X2 plasma canon marines
X2 lightening claw terminators
And a parts for a tyberos the red wake conversion

Question for the community?

Looking to make a land raider variant too, which would work best on the table apart form the standard god hammer, crusader etc??

Will post a update in next few days

Cheers

Dai

Well that brings back some memories... :)

Good to see you back daismith, your work is phenomenal and I look fwd for your new stuff. Regarding the Land Raider, would you consider a FW version? The Achilles looks pretty awesome as does the (armoured) Proteus. But if you're willing to go the extra step, how about the Spartan? That'll be awesome!

Was actually looking at the Achilles on FW today, might be tempted to treat myself to one after I've finished this lot

Really great work in this thread. Seeing this sort of talent used to showcase one of the chapters we don't see as often is really nice.

There pretty easy really

Using the old GW paints liche purple base then thin coats of warlock pink where you think the energy will be (edges etc) then very thin lines of skull white for the lightening)

Hope that helps

Started making my plasma cannon marines today & am really tempted to either buy an LR Achilles or make my own LR ares
