There's plenty of debate way back when the Armada supplement came out (since the Gothic fleet is green and white) if this is indeed the Armageddon fleet or not on the cover. I tend to think so myself because [handwaves] why not? Just to make things even more interesting is that Battlefleet Koronus is very similar (though grey brown hulls)

This model from the store was supposedly BFA (Andy seemed to think so so work for me! ;D )

Thanks AC.

I finished up the black on the Cobras this week and started on the gray, there's just a highlight or two left for that. I'll likely get to that this weekend, and may be able to do the jeweling too so I can clean up and start in on the orange next week.

Additionally, my buddy Jon helped me out with some additional Warlocks. I now have enough for three Ulthwé guardian formations.

Finally, I tried out my new idea for basing characters with these Saim-Hann Farseers. The magnet I set into the base works well enough with a pin head glued to the underside of the figure. I'll likely start doing all my characters like this, unless they require extensive conversions (like an Oddboy).

I made some good progress on the Cobras. The weapons, gems and engines are all done plus I was able to wash and get the first highlight done too. All that's left are the edge and point highlights, and any touch up. If I don't get to that this weekend then it'll be next Tuesday. After that, Storm Serpents!

Thanks guys. Spring's in full swing here, so no painting progress this weekend.

To paraphrase a work conversation from a mere hour ago:

"That's one giant steaming pile of excellence, right there"

Extremely steamy.

I didn't have a chance to snap some pictures of the Cobras last week, but they're done. Like the Scorpions I still need to do the transfers, but I have printed those out yet.

The Storm Serpents were next on the list so here they are. I finished their undersides and mounted them on their bases. I seem to be averaging a tank a week so hopefully they guys will be done by the second week in June.

It was a base coat of Russ Grey that I washed with a thinned down black wash. I then hit the top half again with a thin Russ Grey before painting two thin coats of each of the following: Fenrisian Grey, Blue Horror, Ulthuan Grey and CdA Elven Grey. I used that last three on the hard edges too, without as much thinning.
