I am starting off with my latest army to have its turn with the paint brush. I tend to batch paint by base coating and then dry brushing the models. Once this is done I paint each formation slowly model by model until I finish the Army, or I get a new army to focus on for a tournament.

Vraksian Renegades is my current Project.

I have amassed a large Army from various miniature companies. Original GW, and some 3rd party manufacturers such as Vanguards Miniatures.

The photo below is one of 7 lists I am testing for next years CanCon 2017 tournament. I need to build 2 Warhound Titans with Vraks load outs to build 2 of the other lists.

Image

In all I am looking at anywhere between 9 and 11 formations with anything from 68 to 87 units in the different armies. This one is one of the more balanced lists, with others having more infantry, or more Tanks, or more artillery. I am thinking the Artillery or Infantry heavy lists might be the better ones to use.

This is what I have collected so far for the army: Where possible I have included an Enforcer model to represent the actual Enforcer's unit. I will endeavour to paint more miniatures, perhaps 2 more Infantry Platoons and a Basilisk Company so I can have more list options available to me for the tournament.

Core Formations – 4850 Points

675 Points – Chaos Reaver Titan – 1 Chaos Reaver Titan (Vraks configuration)
675 Points – Chaos Reaver Titan – 1 Chaos Reaver Titan (Vraks configuration)

I will endevour to take more photos of this army and the entire collection in due course.

Later on I will show each army in my collection in turn. I have already posted separate topics on my Dark Eldar and Sisters of Battle. I also have armies for White Scars, Sian-Hann, Squats, Emperor's Children, and later on I intend to collect either Tau, Necrons or Dark Mechanicum depending on which army looks to be suited to my personal playing style.

I intend to build each army up to around 8,000 to 11,000 points. Mainly for the ability to mix and match, and have variety in designing my lists. Plus you can never have enough minis.

I look forward to seeing where this goes. The paint scheme already seems to be doing a lot to tie together the miniatures despite their differing sources.

I have painted a few Alpha Legion infantry and a Rhino as a test scheme. I intend to add in symbols on the banners, and so on. This is just to see if I like the colour scheme. I think I do.

I am thinking of basing the vehicles as well. I will probably use an earth, or muddy base scheme (for Vraks war torn landscape).

I have 3 more Rhinos and 5 more infantry in this formation, and then, the Malcadors.

Hey, These are the colors for the Seattle Seahawks American Football team! Go Hawks!

but seriously, this is a good start. It will be interesting to see what you do with all of this stuff. I'm in the same boat with you. I have too many armies and too much stuff to paint.

I spent time working on the test models, highlights and shading.

I have to take more photos, however I think I will after I base them. I only have to finishing painting 3 marine stands and 2 Rhinos. Hopefully I have they time on Saturday to get that done.

Okay, the Alpha Legion formation is painted and based.

Pictures Below. I might get around to basing the tanks as well. It will make it easier to transport them as I can put magnets on the bases.

Next is the Malcador Tanks.

More painted - based. Finished the Valdors, and the 2 Hell Talon Squadrons, to add to the Alpha Legion.

I will probably start on either the Minotaurs or one of the Infantry Platoons next.
