Hi,

I have some a imperial fists heresy minis, this will be my first full epic scale army that I will paint and I would like to show my progress here so people can give me tips and help!

I haven't played a game either, and will be looking to play once this force is completed so if your in Wiltshire and fancy helping me learn that would be great.

The first of my questions is about basing, am I right in saying they my minis can be based on bases between 40x40 to 20x 5 mm? And the rules don't state the shape that that have to be?
The rules also don't mention about model size. I know the general rule is base with the one that came with but I don't have the bases.

Thanks,

Afraid Wiltshire is a bit far for now but I will cheer you on. =)

That basing rule is about infantry specifically. Vehicles don't have to be based. I think the idea of not basing vehicles is terrible because I spend so much time painting them I want them to be protected from being bashed on things but to each their own.

I've been using Flames of War bases for ages and very very happy with them. You can see some in my painting blog.

I use custom cut ply bases from Fenris games for most of my vehicles. Plenty of examples in my thread including heresy models.

Generally just use what looks best and gives reasonable protection to the model.

Hell yes! More imperial fists on these boards is always a good thing! Got a plan for painting them? I used army painter daemon yellow followed by a wash of AP strong tone, but others spray white and juice with diluted yellow

If you want to give the list a run out sometime (link in my sig) pleae let me know what you thought :)

If I hadn't been swept off my feet by the idea of Grey Knights and space wolves - I would have used the Daemon Yellow for some Lamenters, haha.

Hey,
I will be looking to use the imperial fist list! But I have never played and would like a list that I can use all my units in!

Thanks for the tips on painting, is it worth getting a yellow spray or just hand paint?

Thanks!

personally I'd always go with the yellow primer, it saves you a step as if you prime white then you need to basecoat yellow, I'd recommend the army painter daemon yellow, just make sure you shake it for the full 90 seconds (or until your arm is about to fall off) I then brush on a coat of army painter strong tone quickshade, then bring the colour back up with GW flash gitz yellow (I paint a couple of layers on rather than drybrush)

Hey Alex,

Just come across your thread; welcome aboard and I'm looking forward to watching your force come together :)

I'm based in Wiltshire too, would be happy to meet up and show you the ropes. Let me know if you'd fancy it?

Cheers
Reedar
