Yes! Yes!
I will be watching this PLOG with great interest. I started a heresy-era EC force last year [see signature link] but stopped due to funds, university and awaiting on FW rumours to come true (which they did!) I'm going to be kick starting my force again this December with pure heresy-period material. Isn't the FW book just lovely? So much inspiration and material to work with!

I was not aware that the Command Set was now available? Damn! Good luck with this, I'll be watching it very, very closely.

Looking really good man.

Just one thing I kinda notice. You made the tracks of the Land Raider dirty, but not dirty enough. I mean...the thing has been riding through the mud, and only the centre of the tracks are dirty? I would imagine the whole bottom of the tank being rather brown.

Same goes for the Dreadnought's feet.

I'm really...erm...maybe it's better if I say it in Dutch: ik ben hier echt aan het mierenneuken hoor!

Lovely work, just lovely mind if I ask how you did your paint break down as that's a great purple and very smooth.

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!

The paint jobs are great!. I find it comical that the tech marine cant actually fit through the hatch on that land raider. "Damn shoulder pads! When I find the techpriest that designed the hatch on this tin can I'm going to show him the righteous fury of the Emperor.....That is if I can ever get out of here."

So small point of suggestion as the land raider was off to me. The muddy treads are great but make no sense on the model as nothing else is dirty. You may want to dirty and muddy up the lower parts of the tank all around.

Wow that's nice. I'll be keeping an eye on this.
As for the list, I like it, (1850), although you may want LC sponsons on your preds to crack some armour (depending on your meta of course)

Hey all!

Thanks guys!!!
Really appreciate all the comments!

Alpharius:
As for how i did the snow:
PVA glue mixed with white paint then put it on the base and let it dry (you can put more layers of this depending on how much volume of snow you want)
Then i used snow flock from GW on the last layer and its done
Pretty easy huh ?

sum1thtdiesalot:
I used Warplock bronze as base color.
Then i highlighted this with Runelord brass
Highlight again with Runelord bronze mixed with some mithril silver about 50/50
Then i washed it with Seraphim sepia.
When this was dry i higlighted it with pure mithril silver but only on the area's were light would hit and the gold would ''shine'' the most.

Hope this helps

And this weekend i finished the first cataprachti:

These emp's children are absolutely stunning. You've achieved a very rich purple and it works so well. Especially contrasting with the snow on the bases. Looking really good. Excited to see more.
