I... actually don't know. Help?

It's already been a year? Time flies fast. Looking back on how bad I painted (and still paint) I'm still pretty grateful that this thing exists.

Paradigm... You smart.
You loyal.
You a genius.

It's a little bit out of my comfortzone but that's exactly what this is about, I think.

Quite easily when your model count is in the thousands...

Every time I look through an old box I find some gem I'd forgotten about, commit to painting it, then forget about it all over again.

My wife moved into our new house while I was "on the road" for several month last year.
So as soon as I knew we would leave our flat, I started to put my stuff into boxes but when I left, my wife
had to change some big boxes into smaller ones - so she put some of my 40k stuff into some new boxes
and didn't mark em. That's why I still feel like christmas sometimes - opening a box and find an Imperial
Knight is pretty christmaslike

I'm the same, really I have far to much. I have a set of draws in the garage with I've pretty much filled with stuff, occasionally I'll be going through it and find a box of say poorly painted models from a joblot ebay buy which one day I hope to strip and return to some sort of glory. The other week I found a box of 6 deffkoptas I has completely forgotten about (and also don't remember ever buying but there you go)

Damn Para finished already, our making us look bad here, I've averaged about 2 models a month for the last 6 months >_<

I'm still trying to work my entry out, hoping to combine Orks and Space Marines in one glorious model, but don't want to be lazy and just stick an Ork head on a SM body, that feels like cheating, I'll post proof when I've figured it out.

I found out my brushes are too big for detail work. so ive got to pick some up at michaels. I did get the first color on the shoulders, robes, and all the metal parts of the guns, hammer, and the robe.

all in all im pretty happy with them, for my first attempt. should be alot neater with the smaller brushes.

You're off to a good start - One thing I can recommend, that you can do even with bigger brushes, is to get some washes going on the models. That will give them a much bigger level of definition and really make them shine. IN your case I would recommend Aggrax Earthshade from Games Workshop, if you want 1 wash that can be used with all of your colors.

Trust me, you will love it!

Well, I'm in.

And, just to paint something not in power armour, I'm going with this guy:
Spoiler:


The Exrah Void Operator. A bug related to cthulhu. Who is his insectoid's race equivalent to a space marine, basically engaging in close range assaults during void operations and pulling off high risk boarding actions.

At first glance he almost looks like a Covenant Elite from the Halo games. Probably less so when he's painted.

Considering Corvus Belli "copied" Kerrigan from Starcraft, I wouldn't be surprised if that's where they got the idea.

Infinity is full of references, Deadpool, Major Kusanagi, a bunch of actors, a Spanish politician, Snake...

I just had a crazy idea, does anyone think he would look good painted like a ladybug?

This is my Proof, I haven't figured out how I'm going to do this yet but I'll be combining these 2 models in someway shape or form to make a Grot Space Marine, mostly using a Dremel I suspect.
