Somebody still has those around to paint? My God, he must be the most horrible procrastinator known to man, and a shoddy painter to boot!
I'm finally getting around to painting my first army. I went with smurfs. (I know... I know...) I figured I might as well start out as vanilla as you can get. After I get my feet wet, I'll move on to more interesting things. I'm painting them up as 5th Company. Dunno why... I just liked the black trim.
The guys in the back don't have their bolters and hands done yet, but that's pretty quick. Then, I've got a lascannon, a sergeant, a dread, and a captain to paint. I'll probably paint them in that order, even though I've had the captain prepped for some time. That will get me to 500 points, and my first playable force.
I'm just trying to get these guys to a basic tabletop standard. It's taking me much too long, but I've other things to do, and I'm not at all fast yet. These guys are practice for me. I'm planning on spending a bit more time on the Captain, which is why he's last in line.
