3rd 10-man tactical squad complete!

Just a few minutes ago (9:10am) I completed my 3rd and final 10-man tac squad. pictures arent great because of the lighting in here but if you've seen my other squads you've seen these style/paint wise:

I got another sergeant w/ powerfist in the works to lead a previously made squad, along with a missle launcher guy and a flamer guy to sub into this squad for the melta and lascannon dudes.

more to come (and soon hopefully!)

Managed to bust out another sergeant with a powerfist yesterday, got pics of it before dark came:

Not exactly happy with the banner, but it'll do. One more 10-man tac squad to go before I can move on to the terminators and vehicles.

Painting on a Larger Scale (and a biggger WIP!)

Haven't had much time to do painting of the Sharks recently. My fiance' and I have been painting on a larger scale, aka renovating my house. With my roomate moving out we've had time and access to his old room to make it into a better guestroom. Next room on my list is this computer room ;) - I'll try to manage without computer access a few days for the greater good ("greater good"?! HERESY!). Room's still a WIP as of this writing, but not much is left to do. The awesome hardwood flooring that was obscured by some nasty ass carpet is in good shape, yet could use a lil cleaning and waxing. Here's a few pics of the process:

Finally got some pictures of the scouts complete minus space shark decals on the two guys with exposed shoulders. Here they are!

With Telion:

Scout squad complete!...and DWARFS?!

well sorta... they still need basing so they match up with Telion. I'm dissapointed in my experiment on the faces of the two scouts you see (the others are obscured by goggles/sniper scopes - these faces came out good though). Pics to come as soon as I get access to a camera! Time to move on to some sergeants I redid with powerfists! In the meantime, have an old WIP pic of some dwarfs from the BFSP set. These are from the first miniatures I painted:

Sgt. Telion + better scout WIP pics and INSIGNIAS!

got outside and took some better photos of the scouts and I got some of my completed Sgt. Telion:

Sgt. Telion:

Also got space shark chapter insignias on all my tac guys shoulders. I tried to fix Telion's on his shoulder and messed it up. I got it fixed somewhat but it doesnt look good and ruins the miniature in my opinion. Oh well, the more I do the more experienced I get so hopefully I doo make better minis next time.

Cold weather is cold

Well, this terribly cold weather is putting an extreme damper on spray-primering things outside, so nothing new on the vehicle front. Spray paint just doesnt do well in 19-degree weather! I did manage to get one damaged/badly primered rhino black primered up before the temps dropped off though. The inside is kinda bad and I may just glue it up so it doesnt open and leave all the detail work for my still on the sprues Land Raider and other rhino.

The scouts are about 85% done, just need weapon painting and faces painted along with some minor touch ups. Tac Marines to fill out existing squads are about 95% done just neeed highlifgts and touch up. I have gotta bit lazy on these marines because they are kinda plain (unlike the special characters and scouts) so trying not to dip to much in quality (well my ability's quality). Work schedule and personal schedule have pretty much kept me from having these done already. Look for pics soon!

Sunday, January 3, 2010


I've been at it on the scouts this weekend, and pretty much got stuck on Sgt. Telion to where I just went ahead and completed him (minus basing of course). No pics yet, but soon.

Also got the stuff in to make waterslide decals, so now both completed tac squads have shoulderpad space shark insignias!
