They look so good, fantastic colour choice, really top notch stuff, really dramatic.

BTW I have joined the ranks of retail delivery personnel. Don't think we will see each other on the road, but I will wave anyways.

Hi Dysartes how do. Yeah they aren't finished yet and pumping that energy coil up to max brightness is definitely going to be part of the plan.

Camkierhi The hardest part is finding peoples houses. Well most houses are easy to find, but then you will get one who lives down the third track on the left after the cattle grid, or doesn't have a house number because it fell off etc... and then you end up running late. I don't drive the vans anymore they bought these huge automatic Merc vans and I drive stick only. I just handle bagging and tagging now. Good luck!

Thanks San76. One of these days I'm gona do some imperial fists, I love that yellow.

I really like those Dark Eldar. I may well steal that armour idea for ...something. Very nice!

Another rare day off. Finished the ultramarines:



These will be for sale soon, if anyones's interested.

I sold the genestealer hybrids, finally making enough room on the shelf to put these ultramarines up.

Nice blue - got a lot more depth to it than most of the ultras you see. Was it wash based again?

Nice Ultras there, Weety. Have you left off the usual gold/yellow trim so people can customise them to their own Ultras force?

Thankx Nevelon, Grass4hopper, gitsplitta and Dr H for positive comment.

Azazelx that's right these ones are for sale so I didn't presume to pick a colour. And actually I like em blue.

Scarper no I started with a base coat of ultramarine blue. Vanilla marines + vanilla painting style! There's a few washes after that - one big wash with a dark-blue grey and a final crack+crevice wash of armour wash, and highlights in sky blue.

Ah, so that's why they look so blue; no edge colour. Couldn't work out what it was.

Nice tidy job, Weety.

Less than I hoped but still an order of magnitude more than I bought them for. Well worth it. I enjoy painting but have no room for actual gaming so its win-win.

I'm getting a holiday soon and I will spend some of it finishing these and the dark eldar.

Its pretty damn hot and sunny right now and I have been selling a ton of beer, ice and ice-cream. A nice thing about working in food sales is doing fridge/freezer duty in hot weather. Can't wait for that holiday, but I will miss the walk in. No aircon at home.

What do I have in the potential paint pile (ppp)?:

a rhino tank
4 old high elf swordsmen of somewhere or other
Some more 90s plastic chaos marines
Hoverboard dark eldar dudes
a regiment of plastic halberdiers/spearmen/swordsmen

In the stripper are many 90s imperial guard mostly mordian iron guard and catachan jungle dudes along with ecclesiastical types and a leman russ.

This seems a little poor in choice so I'm going to go buy more stuff immediately.

Yes - a better look at the flag - It is rather good. I'll get on that dreckly


Automatically Appended Next Post:
What was I supposed to be doing? Oh yes a photo of the flag... while I get round to that here is a dreadnought I finished yesterday, one of the really old but still recognizable as a dread ones, solid metal so it weighs a tonne. This one was found at the car boot sale lagged in paint. Whilst stripping it its leg fell off and I re-posed it slightly to give it a lil' swagger.

I should put some grass on the base before I call this finished, it looks a little empty.

Now that flag - I got two old transfers of a hand in a circle from the 80s, unfortunately they were different colours so I had to heavily overpaint the second side.

Nice work, Weety. The Dark Eldar look the business. I also like the old-school BA Dread.

Thanks Azazelx. It's a classic old chunk of metal. I hand painted all the symbols! Well except the right hand scroll which is some mars techpriest transfer cut in half upside-down. His name is Lazm because I ran out of room. Seriously I should redo it but I need to think of a spez-muron 4-5 letter name first.

Actually I have some modeling dilemmas if anyone feels like shoving their oar in. I'm making some modernish fantasy models which I'll probably sell and I'm wondering whether to do them old fashioned regiment style on square bases or put them on larger rounds in the new style?

Dilemma two; picked up a very unusual space marine squad with special metal pads, packs and guns - they could be imperial fists or crimson fists? They are all covered in fists anyway. Also ten models but no heavy weapon? why would someone want to do that? I reckon I can hunt down a lascannon or heavy bolter to spice them up.

Great job as usual Weets! I love the DE, are those 3rd edition DE? Lovely!

I'm excited to see your Old Guard Stuff! I'm 75% of my way through my quest of having one of each pose of the old Guardsmen. I also have one minty in-box, old-school Leman Russ kit I've been saving for last. The old kit is far superior to the new one.
