I've recently returned to 40k after about 25 years and currently repairing and repainting the parts of my collection that I've found so far during a clearout. At the moment, I'm working through my plastic Imperial Guard army. The ones that didn't need any work are pretty much finished apart from varnishing, so today I'm starting on those that were badly assembled or have been broken in storage - the hard part!

Finished building my metal OOP Eldar models. Three Dreads, three Walkers, 5 Warlocks and 1 Farseer. Got some extra 60mm bases from a friend so was able to put the finishing touch and glue them in place!

Tomb Kings army - Over 10,000pts
Vampire Counts army - About 8,000pts
Tyranids army - Under construction, but around 5,000pts already.

So far I'm getting back into the hobby. Picked up 9th, dug out some of my un-built or painted series 1 of Space Marine Heros to shake off a bit painting rust.

As last time I was serious about the hobby was back when black reach? Was the new starter box.

Decided I'm going to polish off these cultists before I move on to indomitus. Started with these third party models:



Also tried a metallic orange paint spray that I couldn't get to adhere to anything even with primer. Tossed it in the trash, if anyone knows a nice metallic blue or orange spray for minis let me know.

You can do similar with that based on other people's experience but I started this army before contrast came and won't change to keep style uniform. It's airbrushed gunmetal all over, from 45 degree angle steel and then from top silver(vallejo model colours). Then transparent blue again from vallejo. That's it.

If you have airbrush it's very quick and easy process. For just odd model or two it's more annoying due to airbrush cleaning and waiting to dry but can't have everything
