A good week or so a ago friend of mine sent me this picture:
Image
He was about to start his Imperial Fists.

This rekindled this excellent game which had faded a bit (lot) to the background.
(too many games and never enough time!)

This made me seek out my sizeable stash of epic I still have not painted.
We keep sending each other pictures of out progress so I figured that it might be nice to post them online too.

Partially since it adds incentive to keep painting until the army is done. ;)
After all; I also have a good chunk of Orks that scream for a paintjob.
Only my Eldar are in good shape really...

Note that is project is intended to get things done. Easy paintjobs. Quick n dirty.
Zero intention of competing for a best paint job. (not enough talent for that anyhow. :'()

The colour scheme was to be blue and gold. So I washed them blue to begin with:

The 4 tanks in the front are 2 hunters and 2 razorbacks
(Rhino's with added 'shapeways' bits.)

Given that this was last weekend I had 2 good days of slapping a bit of pain on in between the usual drag of 'real life'.

And my first unit done.*

Image

Next up some armour to support my grunts.


(the Reaver is far from done of course. He snuck into the picture and no one dared to oppose the mighty warmachine.

*= done except for basing. That'll be done when I finished all infantry to speed things up.

You might benefit from more exposure with a thread down in the 6mm section. I'm sure it can serve as inspiration to many lapsed (or lazy, cough me cough) gamers. Either way, that's a good start!

My start is posted here:
->here<-
But apparently this is the better part of the forum for this kind of thing.

tl; dr
I started once again with epic.
Marines needed a paintjob tis time around.

The goal is fast and furious. It needs to look good on the table. nothing more.
Get things done as it were.

Day 3
Testmodel Landraider:

Happy enough and got the unit done the same day.

Soon enough, the fine detail bug will bite and long gone will be the days of whole units painted in a day. Or maybe I'm just projecting. ;)

Stuff's looking good. I bet it'll all look superb on the tabletop!

Details? Perhaps. But first priority is getting a painted army.
After that I might be tempted to add some added details.

A good day all things considered.
Which is good considering I'll have no time to paint tomorrow.

Predators, razorbacks and hunters

Assault marines: (Wip)

First units done:

[edit; the other unit of predators, the hunters and the razorbacks were drying and not in this picture]
