Just like a bunch of other people, I will try to work on at least something everyday. I do have a bunch of things to work on. I'll start with painting up the Space Marines from the Battle for Macragge box. They all have the basecoat on the armour done, I just need to finish these models.

Hiyas!

I hope he is doing Iron Hands, they are one of my favorites and we barely know anything about them. Though there is a book coming out in July...

Just finished for the night. I don't actually collect Space Marines, but I am painting them as Blood Angels. The only SM I have are from AoBR and Battle for Macragge. My actual armies are Orks and Dark Eldar for 40k and Lizardmen for Fantasy.

I spent the evening painting up the captain from AoBR. I finished the basecoating on the armour, the cape, sword, some of the banner and the cloth for the purity seals. I think that's pretty good headway so far.

Unfortunately, pretty much all of my Lizards are done from the Paintocalypses. I should be able to get some pics up tonight about the SMs I'm painting up.

Done for the night and finished the Captain, basing is all that's left. Pics should be coming up pretty soon.

Pics are here!

Image

Just an overall look at the model.

Image

A closer look at the front.

Image

The banner on the backpack. The writing on it is freehand. It is my first time doing something like that and I am working with pretty awful brushes right now.

Image

The sword was painted using the same technique as best as I could from the Large Area Lightning video.

Image

This is the second cloak I have painted, so I still need some work on it. Orks and Lizardmen tend to not use cloaks all that much.

Image

And the Captain standing in front of a squad of unfinished marines.

Hope you like the pictures. I may go ADD and start working on some Tau I have before finishing the marines, though.

Everything is looking good! I can see that the sword looks a little thick paint wise, kind of chunky looking. thinning paints down just a bit will take that rough look away from future minis :)

The thick paint is the Mordian Blue. I need a new pot now, but don't really have the time to get it.
