Test astral claw paintjob

This is a test marine in the astral claw color scheme, all that's missing is dip on these, and I might do a bit of brown washing on the emblem on the boltgun and ribbon on his foot. Also, there will be transfers on his shoulder pads, I'm thinking about alternating 1 blue shoulder pad + 1 boltgun shoulder pad and 2 blue shoulder pads. Gold trim would stay the same on those. Either way, these should be way easier to paint than the guardsmen!

Primed and ready to go!

So all of the marines are primed and ready to be painted in Astral Claws colors. Fortunately, Army Painter took care of a good chunk of work here!

Tyrant's Legion list grows...

Albeit not another group of IG to help support the fight, I have all but one space marine put together for my list. That's two units of 20 tactical marines for the Astral Claws, aka Legion Space Marine Cohort. I'm missing bits to make the last missile launcher, in all these units will be 4 missile launchers, 1 sergent, and 15 normal tactical marines. Best part, they get to use my IG as human shields, i can't tell you how exited I am to be able to utilize Operation Human Shield in this game. These guys are almost ready to get primed and painted in the Silver and Blue Astral Claws theme.

Legion Auxillia Prefect Commander (WIP)

I took a bit of a break from painting squad after squad of IG and decided I need to get my commander up and ready. I will not be dipping this guy, he's getting the best paint treatment I know how to do. So far, I'm super happy with how he's turning out, shouldn't take too much longer to finish painting this one.

Tactical Squad 2

Here is the second tactical squad I made for my Astral Claws.  I tried to make some interesting poses instead of just using shooting marines.  Transfers will be added as soon as they arrive from Forgeworld.  I should have pictures of the some terminators to share soon as well.  I painted these differently than the last squad and I'm much happier with the results.

More Guard....

Quick update, I've been painting about as much and as fast as I know how. After dipping/basing those in the photo, I'll have about 50+ guard painted. Kayle and friends helped me build a rough outline to a Tyrant's Legion list, which has WAY more space marines that I care to deal with, but, such is life and 40 tactical marines have been ordered and are on their way here as I write this. I'll post a force shot once I get that group done and can show a little more totally completed.
Also, if anyone has any IG Heavy flamer bits left over from the command boxes...hit me up, I'll buy them off of you. If not, no worries.

Piper joins the fray

Ok, so after trying several times to post here, i finally READ THROUGH everything again so i could figure out how....shut up.
I will make this into several posts instead of one long one.
So I'm working on a Red Scorpions Seige Assault Vanguard Army for the upcoming apocalypse.
Here Are some pics from the first Assault squad, jump packs not attached yet to ease painting, base colors only

Assembly Weekend

Got together with Jake, Greg and Matt this weekend.  They painted, I assembled.  Greg finished an awesome Rhino / Razorback, and Jake and Matt worked on Marines, all of which look great.  Anyways, here is a pic showing my assembly progess:

What I have left to assemble: 10 Tactical Marines, 10 Sternguard Marines, 2 Drop Pods, 9 Assault Marines, 3 Vanguard Marines, 1 Terminator, 1 Assault Terminator.  Then, painting, painting, and painting.

Imperial Guard Painting Update

I figured I'd join in and post a few of the units that are in progress, right now it's a couple of squads out fo the many I have. I've been reading up on Badab (as my knowledge of it is very thin) and trying to work out what's best to put in a list. This is something I'm pretty terrible at, so I figured I'll work on troops as I'm planning on bringing plenty along to the fight. For all of the troops in my army I've opted to use the dipping method, which really makes the daunting task of painting a horde of troops, not so bad, and far less intimidating.

Here's a squad all ready to be dipped.

Here's a squad freshly dipped and still shiny!

Here's a squad that's totally finished, based, and ready to go.

Brief Update

Here's a picture of what has been assembled so far.  Big work weekend coming up!  Some paint might actually be applied to models.

Galin's Salamanders

Here is my Captain and command squad. I'm thinking of adding one or two storm shields.

On the right
is a test paint job.

Below is the stuff I've assembled. Its about 2000 points so far. I'll probably add a redeemer, a ceastus assault ram and a small unit of vangaurd.

Rhino #1

I finished this Rhino over the weekend, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I'm really looking forward to getting Astral Claws transfers...

The Drop Pod that never was

So I finished painting a drop pod for a dreadnought, and here it is, enjoy the pictures then enjoy the story afterwards.

I've been struggling to come up with a solid list, the list I had previously used 4 drop pods. I am now using the Space Marine siege list in Imperial Armour 10 and it cannot take drop pods so I will not be using this. However, Matt, the Astral Claw player liked the interior and the hazard striping enough that he offered to take it off my hands, so expect to see an update sometime in the future with a drop pod painted silver and blue with some familiar hazard striping.

Corien Sumatris

Apart from writing his name on his banner and adding transfers I finished Corien Sumatris today!  Here he is in all his painted glory.  I've also included a picture of what I have painted and what's in progress below.  A big thank you to my girlfriend Karin for helping me basecoat the rhino and next  tactical squad.


Greg will be taking the roll of successionist with Executioners.  Myself and Jake will keep everyone updated on his progress as well.  Here is the start of his army.

Tyrant Rising

Here is my completed Tactical Squad for your viewing enjoyment.  They still need some transfers which I need to order from Forgeworld and I'd like to do one more highlight on the gold.  Next up is Corien Sumatris.  I'll start painting him today.

Gonna smash down your walls

Here are some pictures of the nearly completed Ironclad, I have a few details left to go as well as some clean up, but that will not take long.

I am thrilled on how the Dragonforge base turned out and also am very happy on the way the scheme looks. Next on the plate is to build a drop pod.
