Hi guys,

Its been a while since I have been on here but I am getting married in just over 3 weeks time so I have been very busy. Plus I have just had an operation to have a tooth removed so not feeling great right now! Anyway enough of the boring stuff and I thought I would show you my Imperial Fists so far and as an added bonus ive started working on some Imperial Guard allies too. Hope you like, critiscism and thoughts welcome!

Oh and there is also a picture of my second home here too and is the reason my Saturdays are usually ruled out for any kind of painting or modelling!

Do you know who has the worst job in the imperium? Imperial fists artificers, because painting yellow armor really, really, really sucks.

These look great though. That wash on that studded shoulderpad came out so much better than any of mine.

I like your Cadians, and hats off for doing Fists. Anything yellow is too intimidating for me.

But lol at Sunderland.

It was a base coat of Iyanden Darksun, with a wash of Ogryn Flesh in the recesses and then touched up with Iyanden again. Followed by highlights of 50/50 Bleached Bone and Darksun.

Kudos on the yellow! Guard are also coming along nicely!

Not too sure on the last pic, it may be out of focus but it looks like some sort of toy stadium! Is that where that funny team pretend to play foatball?

Great job on the models, especially the fists, yellow is such a hard color to do.

Well, first off, getting married is not boring, so congrats!
And am happy to see some Imperial Fists! Great job with the yellow!

Behind the Salamanders, the Imperial Fists are my next favorite Chapter, so I am indeed quite happy.

Is that a soccer field? Oh, he's English.

Great Fists, some of the nicest sternguards I've seen. Your yellow kind of falls in between the old bright yellow schemes and the newer style that I just call pale brown

For the Emperor! Kill Maim Burn!... I mean purge the unclean!
