An update from my post the other day… Being a bit quicker with the brush than the rest of the floating citadel’s minions I managed to complete my squad, up to a standard I am pleased with. Not one bit of army painter involved here, no sir-ee, this here is genuine paintbrush work with absolutely no dippage.
The other big change from my regular stuff is that these guys are magnetised, meaning their arms are moveable and removeable. Poseable action figures are awesome, and you can pull their arms off in slow motion when they inevitably fail their armour saves. On a more practical note, you could swap out for lightning claws should you get bored with your master crafted thunder hammers. Yeah right!

Recently I have been investing a bit more time and effort into my painting, seeing as I’ve already turbo-painted my way through several thousand points of
cannon fodder Space Marines for gaming with.
Here then, is my latest creation. Things I have found to be really useful – daylight illumination bulbs, magnification, decent brushes and decent paint. The bulk of this guy was done with vallejo’s sick green, scorpion green and yellow green. Also worth a mention are Games Workshop’s drybrushes. They are severely worth every last groat.
I was cleaning out my garage the other day when I found a box containing some assault marines and an assembled Rhino. See? There are some benefits to tidying up occasionally! Anyway, I flopped out my sparkly new vallejo game colour paints and got to work…
