Love seeing those old Orlocks get a fresh lick of paint!

I haven't been painting much recently, but I've been doing a bit of building and re-basing of my Squats. I'd like to get these all primed, with their bases done and they're nearly there. There's also a few more things (Land Train, Steel Hawks, War Hawks, Mole Mortars) that still need to be built, and I need to source 3 more Hearthguard models (that's the one empty base).

Image

When the Mole Mortars are done my infantry will almost completely fill this tray except for a small .125"x.5" area. For some reason that's tremendously satisfying.

Cool stuff. Actually, for a second there, I thought I was looking at an industrial terrainkit. Which is the intended design effect, I suppose. I wonder how these will look with paint!

I did the black on a dozen more tank hulls, and started on most of the first highlight on all 18. These are going to be my Falcons, Fire Prisms and Night Spinners. I'm converting turrets for all of them, and looking to magnetize the Falcons and Fire Prisms.

The end goal here is a Saim-Hann army for Fall In!, it's a lot of painting and converting though so we'll see how I do.

Really great work as always! What kind of fine sand do you use on your bases?

Thanks guys. It's terrarium sand, Stormwind. I got it at one of the US's big chain pet stores. Make sure it's actually silica, they sell calcium based stuff too which can dissolve.

Painting black always seems to take the longest, right up until I start painting orange... Anyway, first black highlight is done and the second has been started (outside edges and air intakes). Once I finish that I just have the corner and point highlights for it.

Beautiful as always, I thought you must have a huge Eldar army already!

Ya, 10,000 points or something like that.

I finished the second highlight on the black this week but didn't get much more painting in beyond that. I'd like to finish the black next week and start on the Shuriken Catapults. While I'm painting them I'm also going to paint my newly converted Void Spinner barrels and finally get those finished up.

Image

I'm hoping that the Vypers will get the fan treatment at somepoint, until that happens though I'll need a stand in. I cleaned, primed and basecoated these guys this week as well.

Image

Finally, a gold star to the person who figures out what these are for. :P
