Very well done and inspiring! One thing I hated about the Tallarns is that their FW counterpart is not in scale with the metal ones. A rare collection of the FW Tallarn sentinel, I wished I had gotten more before they discontinued their line. Do you plan on having rough riders?

One suggestion for your tallarns is to have some variation of skin tone, like dark Arab, Indian kind to give them some flavor.

Great stuff here. I saw your entry over on the painting comp thread and now I am stalking your other painting threads and becoming impressed.

Very nice! May want to find alternative models though. That one squad may start to look pretty boring.

Hello again, I'm digging up my old P&M blog! It has been years since I last looked at 40k, but thanks to GW's seemingly improved attitude and the 8th edition rules I'm back. I'm picking up pretty much exactly where I left off with the Tallarns- I'm excited to see what special rules they'll get in the upcoming codex, even if I'm miles off having enough done for a proper game.

In the meantime I've had a blast with Infinity. The models were great and I improved my painting a lot. I was getting a touch frustrated with Infinity actually, since every time I spent hours painting a mini they'd do a resculpt shortly after... gah! Although these days they are running out of Haqqislam stuff to resculpt...

So, I finally have a tank. The model that actually struck me when I first started 40k as a kid was the Basilisk. At the time the box photo showed one in the Tallarn scheme, so I wound up with the army that I'm steadily repainting now. I always wanted one like the one on the box, although I thought it would look even cooler with some crew on the back. Here we are!

Luckily porting my established scheme to the "new" paint range wasn't too painful. As always, feedback, comments and encouragement are very welcome

Cheers! Lots of practice with my rusty Orks.... Here I used standard sponge weathering + metallic highlight for chips, then some brown/orange/tinbitz paint washes applied patchily on surfaces or round rivets and then dragged around vertically with a dry brush a bit. I'd like to use powders more- I did use a little here on the tank tracks- but I'm nervous about sealing them in with varnish after a Purity Seal incident years back.

Some upcoming stuff:
