Left one on the Imperial Fist question.

Great looking Blood Bowl stuff btw! Are you planning on expanding the teams at some point? All of the teams sans Dwarfs have about half of the positionals needed. Can't wait to see more!
Time will tell... Sooner or later... Time will tell.

@Kovlovsky - Thank you. It was fun painting all of these different teams.

@Arnathos- Eventually I will buy the Ogre, Trolls, and Rat Ogre to my existing teams. Eventually I will add the Lizardmen and Chaos when those models get updated.

@Guildenstern- Thank you

@LordMcAllister- I wish my stuff looked as good as Arnathos, his skaven are gorgeous. If you think i'm copying Arnathros my marines are gonna look just like Aegis's right down to the bases. Guess it the consequence of Heresy era armies. Bound to have lots of duplicate armies. NOW GO PAINT YOUR BLOOD BOWL TEAMS!

This week I finished building and putting the base coat on my Imperial Fists. Waiting on a Storm Eagle, Rhino, and Spartan to arrive in order to finish up a 2500 point list I want to try out.

Legion Praetor in Cataphractii Armor
Chaplain in Cataphractii Armor
Apothecary
5 TH/SS Cataphractii Terminators
5 Shooty Cataphractii Terminators
10 Legion Vets
18 Tactical Marines
5 Heavy Support Marines w/ Lascannons
5 Heavy Support Marines w/ Missile Launchers
3 Artillery w/ crews

Sorry if I was a bit ambigous. I didn't mean to say that you are copying Arnathos painting style or anything... I only meant, that you painting your BB-Team is tempting me to paint my own... like Arnathos tempted me to do, by paiting his team(s). ;)

No worries. What I said was also in jest...darn you internet and your poor means of conveyance!

The coming of 8th edition has me more excited for warhammer then I have been in years. So I have set a lofty goal to complete
1 Battlesmith, 10 Skitarii Vanguard, 3 Kataphron Servitors, 1 Cataphractii Praetor, 5 Cataphractii Hammernators, 30 Marines, 10 Devastators.

This week I got off to a really strong start
1 Battlesmith (Basecoated)
10 Skitarii Vanguard (Red and Bleach bone started)
3 Kataphron Servitors (Basecoated)
1 Term Capt (back cabling started)
5 Terms (back cabling started, shoulder pads and gorgets done in black)
30 Marines (10 marines all touched up and ready to get the yellow glaze started)
10 Devastators (ready to be touched up and get the edges highlighted, then on to the yellow glaze)

I spent this week painting the weapons and backpacks. Also made a little progress on the Praetor, Terminators, and Devastators.

Looking good.

Like I always say, I wish I could paint yellow. Don't know how you guys do it.

Me too. That's why I didn't paint yellow. Spray paint army painter bone color and 2-4 shades of Lamenters Yellow Glaze. Gives a nice smooth yellow that goes on very quick.

My glaze is not long for this world. Just doing these first 21 marines has dropped the glaze level to the top of the word citadel on the pot.
I am dreading how fast it will go when I start painting those larger flat surfaced marine vehicles. My forces have begun to muster to lead the Indomitus Crusade to bring the fight to the mutant, the traitor, and the heretic!
