Lysander looks like he's coming along extremely well. Can't wait to see how he looks when he's done.

Lysander's body is done, working on his arms now. This is the first time I've painted something in pieces and it's driving me crazy. I want him together now.

I'm wondering if I should have drilled holes for pins for his arms first?

Edit: I want to finish him so I can start on the Primaris marines.

Honestly I've never tried painting a model in pieces before. I'd say it's fine to have not drilled the holes for pins first, but I've honestly never pinned a model either, so I don't know how that would have affected it.

Here he is in his disassembled glory.



Still need to work on one arm, then do highlights.

Lysander is looking good, he should be great when he's put together again.

I love how Lysander came out. I can't wait to see how you treat the new Marines.

I just realized i never posted the finished scouts.



And here is the Legion of the Damned I've finished so far.

Also, I guess im going to put together a Deathwatch force. They're another facet of the 40k universe I've loved since the beginning, before they ever had models.

All this talk of a new codex, seeing the new upgrade sprue, and the Deathwatch Watch Master with the halberd, and seeing what's in the Getting Started box got me thinking.

A few years ago, i painted an IF representative for a Penny Arcade 40k thread collective effort. A poster there was putting together a DW force using the GK rules at the time. Lots of us painted one or two models each and it was fun and made for lots of laughs. But the army ended up getting donated at Nova Open for charity after getting a best painted award.

I already have the DW models from the Deathwatch Overkill box and ive always wanted to paint them. I figure getting some Primaris, the GS box and those will gibe me a small flexible force. Already preordered the codex and paid for it, so I'll see what else I'll need then.

In fact, you can see my original version of Drusus Gaul on page 2 of this thread, before he returned to the Fists as a Sternhelm.

Three Primaris Aggressors with boltstorm gauntlets and a Primaris apothecary have been assembled. Priming to commence soon.

I love how those Legion of the Damned came out, really nicely done. And Deathwatch are looking like they'll shape up to be a fairly solid army, special issue ammunition plus Primaris are a solid combo I think

Thanks!

I couldn't agree more on Primaris Deathwatch. I'm already pricing shoulder pads at Pop Goes the Monkey, and I've totalled up almost $75 on 5 sets to get the 11 or so chapters i want in my DW force.

Since I last posted, I've purchased most of a Deathwatch army, spent more on the shoulder pads, and completely lost interest for months.

I've spent the last few weeks playing Red Dead Redemption II, and thinking about the hobby, bemoaning that I never wanted to paint anything again.

Last week, I gave thought to trading in my Valhallans for store credit, realized how little I would get, made a Facebook post, and now I have someone interested in buying the whole thing. I struggled with the thought of selling my first true love, but the more I thought about, the more right it seemed. Especially since I was getting excited to paint something... my Imperial Fists.

That right there let me know I was doing the right thing. It doesn't hurt that the person buying it is an amazing painter, is excited about painting it, and has his own painting business, so I'll get to see lots of pics. This will be his personal project, and I feel it is going to a good home.

But it did get me to thinking about where I want to take the Fists. I think I may put the chapter on hold for now, and go ahead and get the army in a playable state. That means working on building the Primaris I want to add, and buying the last three things I want for the army.

So I have almost all the Primaris built, from my Dark Imperium set. I just need the Inceptors to get built. These are really awesome models. I can't wait to slap some paint on them.

Things are going slow, but they are going.

I've been building a bunch of stuff. Mostly the Primaris part of my newest army list. 5 Intercessors, 5 Hellblasters, a captain in Gravis armor and a Primaris Lieutenant and 5 Reivers with grav chutes. I built a razorback with twin-linked assault cannons and a Whirlwind. Now I'm building a Redemptor. Those feet are difficult to get posituoned correctly.

I've purchased everything I think I need, barring future changes to the list. Its actually the first time ever that I have bought every model for a list I've planned out. Now I've started buying terrain.

I got my first two boxes today. The Sector Imperialis Ruins and the Promethium Relay Pipes. The FLGS had the pipes and I know they're discontinued, so I went ahead and got them.

For anyone still following this, I've been painting lots of yellow on Primaros marines. I haven't quite finished getting the yellow right on all the models, and I cannot figure out a list to save my life, but I got bored and went ahead and finished my standard bearer. I still need to apply decals, and some Nurgle's Rot to the base, and I'll post pics later tonight.

I finally finished a Primaris. I'm not sure how I feel about the Nurgle's Rot on the base, though.
