@GD1 - Cheers man, I'm hanging out for your GK's now as well.

@Ogryn - Yeah I'm not much of a general but a old mate of mine is happy to school me now and again

@LDP - Yeah I went on Thursday and had a 1k point game and yes, they do try to sell stuff (I guess that's what they are there for eh?)

Update: Squad 3 Marine 6 done.

@Gits - Cheers Gits, I try to chip away at models at a constant rate, there are some days where I wont paint at all though (and it seems those kinds of day's are becoming more and more prevalent)

@Leohart - Thanks for taking the time to comment Leohart, the box at his feet? its a ammunition container for a heavy bolter, if you look at the backpacks for the devastator models the heavy bolter one has two of those boxes side by side so this is a spare

@Ogryn - Thanks I guess he does have a scowl about him eh?

@FP - Thank you

Update: Squad 3 Marine 7 WIP 2 almost done

Yeah something like that. Just basically every step you take snap a pic BTW i'm going to be starting a GK force late next January, just thought you'd be interested I did a test mini and i'll show you a pic. It's not my best standard but its for a realistic speed so I can get an army done and it still looks pretty good and 'grimdark'. I'll show you a pic soon

Thanks guys. I sort of see where you're coming from Gits, but they look pretty grim and dark like this ;P

Grim and dark is good in grimdark but maybe a wee bit of really shiny edge highlighting? Also, @ Knightley - yeah, had noticed dakka quite quiet too.

@Capitansolstice - Thanks man, I'm stoked you like them

@LDP - Step by step... Ok, i'll look into doing that for the purifiers I'm doing soon. I do like your GK's very grimdark!

@bigfish - not sure if you're talking about LDP's GK or my marine, either way thanks for commenting

@Gits - I agree with you, it looks like its missing one small piece.

@Ogryn - I agree, his models do look very nice and I can't wait to see more.

@Graven - I think you nailed it, the silver is very dark and has good shadows but there isn't a contrast to break the darkness, heck even if it is raised edge highlighting I believe it would add a wee bit to it.

@Miss Dee - Any particular FW stuff you're waiting on?

Update: Marine 9 done
