Hey guys Sam here, wanted to put a few pictures up of my current project.
Decided to start an army which has always appealed to me but was above my ability to paint. Its going to take some time to complete but I hope to improve my painting skills and end up with an army of which I am proud to put on a tabletop.
Its worth noting that I do not like decals and stencils are in the post for unit markings.
So I started off by buying a second hand basilisk to test my paint scheme for the armour.
Using the forge world weathering powders really impressed me here.
Alas using a Siege regiment I cannot use the basilisk so will be buying a Colossus to replace this.
I then went on to tackle a command squad consisting of:
Master of ordnance
Heavy weapon team
These units were really fun to paint, I based them similarly to the daemons and warriors so they can look good together.
Then I began painting an infantry platoon. I have not used the standard infantry models and instead used their more armored counterparts. I believe they look a bit better.
The watch masters were also fun with their combat weapon.
One of the first models I bought was the quad mortar and crew. I love the crew that come with this intimidating cannon and look forward to getting a second. (And two heavy mortars)
My most recent purchase was a leman russ. I have always liked these tanks and the sheer amount of weaponry they can carry is staggering.
Mine is kitted with two multi melta's, vanquisher cannon with mounted heavy stubber to make it twin linked and lascannon
My aim is to use this model as a danger close unit for killing knights / land raiders etc
Thats all of which I have painted at present. I am working on my first of three squads of death riders at the moment and have a Hades drill with engineers waiting to be done next.
I hope you enjoy, please leave comments or feedback below.
