I like how the Kroot is red, normally green, but the ork is green and you have more lee way painting a Kroot red than you do an ork. And Red complements green nicely. Good job, odds on favourite.

Is it alright if I use this as a chance to finally redo my Vindicare Assassin / make some new pieces of terrain for my home gaming board?

I took the pictures using my flip as I still have been unable to purchase a better camera - $$$ is a bit tight at the moment (new transmission 4 mah car uuuuugggggggg :cry:)
Any ways, I stripped the model using Simple Green (biodegradeable cleaner - non toxic) I just filled a styrofoam bowel with it and put my Vidincare Assassin in it and let him sit overnight. I looked up some ideas for the V.A. and settled on the classic Dawn of War scheme, I just wanted mine to look a bit more dirty like he's been sent on missions that were years long and the like.

The next morning I took him out and brushed the paint right off him with ease. Then Left for work

After getting home from work that same day, I primed him chaos black and began painting his clothing a 1:1 mix of Bestiel Brown and Fortress Grey to give it a more dirty type look, then VERY lightly drybrushed him with a skull white

Then I painted all the bullets and stuff on him, and lightly washed him with a Badab Black to make it look more detailed and then I based him

http://img132.imageshack.us/i/video170000027.jpg/ - extremely blurry pic of him done

I made a building out of foamboard I bought at a local store a few months back. Painted it with Fortress Grey, and drybrushed the floor bestiel brown, I plan to base it and put some Inquisition transfers and Guard Munitions' boxes in it but haven't gotten around to it yet.

And Poseidon:
Could you tell me what type of Camera you have, I'd like to get a better one once I get a little extra money, I need one that can handle this level of detail and yours looks like it would fit the bill pleeeeeaaaasssssseeeee. Thank you!!! :D
