Thanks JH! My first wife accused me once of being able to find a brick walking home from work and then having planned the Taj Mahal to build in my head by the time I got home. In this instance, there's a lot more I want to do to add to this piece, I just might not live long enough to get everything done! Glad you like it- it means a lot to me when fellow Dakkanauts take the time to comment (even with constructive criticism) on something I've worked/tried hard on.

The evil sadist in me wants to find where you live, figure out your route home and leave little obscure items along the route to see what comes up next . Kind of like a DakkaDakka white elephant present , but instead of just seeing their expression once you get to watch their blog every update to see what you caused.

You guys don't have to waylay me on my home- I read your blogs! Do you know how hard I've been resisting getting into Bushido because of you and Gits? Every time I read a new entry by any of you- I'm already off to the races! Dakka is better than the small group I used to paint with oh-so-long-ago: there's a lot more of you, you're all more dedicated to the hobby and you have a lot more interests. I'm home, man, really home!

It comes from being half packrat- once you get caught hoarding all your treasures, you have to come up with a justification or else people just hink you're crazy

The next project for me is the Marksman Fire Team from the Empire of Men Kickstarter. I've got the five figures for the section plus the platoon leader, so lots of options for using them if I ever get to game again. I hadn't counted on them being 28mm 'normal' scale, instead heroic, like GW and others- they are very small. But amongst all the figures I got (female and male stormtroopers, commandos, heavy weapons, psykers, rough riders, vehicles, etc) I can field a homogenous force of up to 2500 points, I reckon, so all good. The detail is excellent and the animation is truly top notch (I think). Three of the six have their pistols (M1911's, from the look, although possibly Browning Hi-Powers) out, so I think they must be particularly bloodthirsty Valkyries and- having deliberately dropped their target with a non-instantly fatal shot to the A Zone, have now sauntered up to put the finishing coup de grace in the head, up close and personal.

Here's my palette I intend using for them:



And here's the section on painting bases primed and the start of base coating:



Learning objectives for this project are:

* Make best use of time to get them done fairly quickly (not speed painting, per se, but get 'em done as I have a lot more to do- there's all the Dominion stuff I got that has to be got to)
* Detail the bases a bit more realistically and in a more substantial fashion than I have done in the past
* Don't start any other projects until these gals are done

These to me are reasonable objectives.

More follows soonest.

Not where I should be

Dakka is a wonderous and terrible thing. Has been a real and genuine home and friend and also a serious task master. No one ever pressures you, but you feel you must try harder, must give an update.

Latest are looking super straight away. For a bit of speed, play with washes a bit more. You can get a model to a happy standard in quick order and can always go back later and add more detail. Even with not being heroic scaled the guns are awesome looking.
