Finished a squad of Skitarii Rangers and Vanguard. These models were a lot of fun to paint so I rolled out my new game mat to see what they would look like on it, and I am really pleased with what I see. I'm still terrible at taking pictures so these are the only ones that didn't come out blurry. With these guys complete I will now have completed more than 1 model per week since I started the weekly paint even if I don't paint anymore this year...so hooray for that.

I love the red. Striking but not overwhelming.

Soria summed up nicely what I think: it's a magnificent red. I will also add that your painting is also very crisp.

Thank you all for the compliments. I attribute the crispness to the contrast between the wash and edge highlighting.
@Lord McAllister- The bases are from here http://www.champindustries.net/orders_b.html

Certainly not the best ones you can get, but for .30 per base the price was right. Unfortunately they only come in the size of the standard infantry base so I still need to do something for the rest of the army.

They are great! Cheap, but looking good. It's much more affordable than the resin bases (I've even found bases made of stone on Ebay. They looked fantastic, but they were extremely expensive).

Taking a break this week from the mechanicus and stripping some bloodletters and sword brethren. Next week I will return you to your regularly scheduled red tide.

I went on a mass buying spree taking advantage of different sales. As a consequence I have bought everything I wanted to complete my Apocalypse Daemon, and Adeptus Mechanicus army. So I will be going on a mass building spree to get everything ready for painting.

Proof of having more $$ then sense. Fortunately all of these things were bought at 20-45% off. Huzzah for different Holiday sales.
