Marit Lage's Weekly Paint 2017

Post by Marit Lage » Mon Aug 07, 2017 7:13 pm

It's good to be back to the hobby, though my initial offerings are going to be very repetitive, unfortunately.

I've decided to rebase my army. All 200+ models of Chaos Marines and their support forces. I like the city bases Games Workshop started putting out, and I bought the last box at my local FLGS yesterday (20X 40mm, 40X 25mm), and painted a single base for Abaddon and started assembly-lining the rest, though I need the rain to let up before I prime the rest (primed 12 initially).

Good to see you here brother! Took me about a year but I did get all my chaos marines switched to 32mm, the ones that are painted anyway! A painted army with awesome bases makes for an impressive sight on the tabletop!

Agree. Bases make a big difference and it is worth the effort.

Got most of the bases I bought painted; 30x 25mm and 12x 40mm. I also put Abby and his Terminator cadre on the 40mm bases, and removed 30 cultists from their bases to paint all of them.

Finished the first cultist of hundreds. I tried to go for something simple to do over and over again, but would good alongside Black Legion forces as Cultists and with my tanks in my Renegades army, so I wouldn't have to own 500 cultists. What do you guys think of the color scheme?

Simple, straight forward, and effective. I think it'll look great on the table top.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. I painted up five more Cultists today and put them on those fancy bases, and then I went ahead and switched a unit of Obliterators to the new bases as well. It really does give them more pop, at least to me. A friend of mine also decided to take the plunge with 40k over the weekend, and got himself an index and a Hive Tyrant.

Ooooh, those cultists look super menacing! I really like that dark, somber color scheme.

Got more bases over the weekend, and I've been painting them and the Cultists like crazy. I've decided to only paint the legs of my Chaos Marines before putting on some varnish and affixing them to the bases before doing additional work on them, since I'm trying to get them ready for a game Friday.

Woah dude! Those cultists look excellent! The bases and new colour scheme just really give them that endless horde vibe!

Thanks, Arnathos. I was trying for something that looked generic, was quick to paint up, and looked decent enough. After a brown wash, they looked a lot better than I thought they would.

On a sad note, I'm out of varnish, so no more painting for me until Friday when I head up to a Warhammer store to play some games.
