progress on the first of my new squad

 

gallery_33706_8353_13478.jpg

gallery_33706_8353_40417.jpg

 

the rest of his squad mates are going to be my first vow for the E Tenebrae Lux II

 

I [Xmercx] answer the call of E TENEBRAE LUX and vow to complete [One 9 man Devastator Squad with 4 plasma cannons] from [my as yet unnamed successor chapter of Blood Angels] of total value [214 points] on or before August 15th. Success will bring eternal glory to [The Blood Angels and all their successor chapters] and failure will doom me to bear the Badge of Shame until the year-end

 

I have my pre shot of the squad, which still needs some mold lines cleaned up

 

gallery_33706_8353_101384.jpg

 

 

 

 I may tweak some of the arms a bit like I did with the first guy.  Going to try and paint these up a little more production line instead of one at a time to see if i can finish them a bit faster.

Pretty.  But the paint looks awfully grainy/textured in some spots.  Most of it is in the white, which frankly is not that uncommon (damned uncooperative white!) but some is in the orange, too.  You look experienced enough to thin the paints, so maybe the models haven't been prepped and cleaned well enough?  Or maybe I am just seeing things? :teehee:

 it has more to do with user error involving a new can and new brand of spray paint for the base coat which I think I have resolved for all his buddies.

Ok, so going to rebuild my thread a bit since we seem to have lost some posts.  looks like the posts poofed back to sometime when I was working on my 4th vow.  So, that was finished:

so the Blood Angel sub forum is starting up a new painting challenge http://www.bolterand...e-to-salvation/

 

 

first project for it:

 

I, Xmercx of the Nova Angels (working title for my succesor chapter), vow on the honour of the Primarch Sanguinius and of the Ninth Legion to paint and present a:
Furioso Dreadnought w/ Frag cannon and heavy flamer

1 Assault Marine w/ flamer (and mag'ed so I can swap for a plasma gun or melta gun) 

 

(it is what's on my painting desk atm)

 

before the 30th of November. I will present pictures of my progress in this forum.

I vow to bear the CARCERES IRA badge in my signature, should I fail to complete my pledge. May Sanguinius guide my paint brush.
