Is it bad of me to admit that the main reason I personally wanted to get pictures working was for this very thread? :)

Bwaaa ha ha ha! I had a feeling that was the case. Having painted a few more bits and pieces, I've looked back at stuff done only a few months ago, and comparatively they look...shithouse. I'll post the few bits and pieces I'm happy with though...I reckon I'm going to strip and repaint a fair few of my previous efforts (Command Squad, Librarian, Tactical marines x lots) + the ones I've barely done anything to.

Army en masse...no proper points count as yet. Waiting on new SM Codex to hit.

Still wanting a troop carrier, land speeder and an assault squad to round it out.

Still got a stack of painting to go on the bodies I've got though!

Not sure if this is the place but the last thread was - finally got all my troops assembled, even my 10 Death Company Marines.


We can embed picture man - Please, I dont know what anyone else thinks, but I want people to start utilising that function here - Show us your work!

I want to finish off those 'nids and two Raveners I have and i will be doing the same


Yeah I'll get some decent pics of my assembled Blood Angels chapter up when I have some painting done.
I actually have an army of sorts now - got the latest issue of White Dwarf so I have an extra Terminator and Ork Nob on top of what's in Black Reach, plus some scenarios to try out.

Incidentally, the "Assault on Black Reach" starter paint set comes with 5 more Marines, making it pretty good value if your paint supplies are running low and you want a couple of "spare" troops to practice on...

Nice work there Hector, your painting is looking pretty good these days!

Game: Fantasy
Army: Thinking of Dark Elves or High Elves...


Go Dark Elves you know you wan to ;)


Careful with Dark Elves, I used to collect them, then they just sort of disappeared. High Elves are good with long range, Dark Elves are not. Better in close combat and spells. But still ..... they are DARK ELVES FFS!

:)


i had an inkling that that was so.

i should be gettign soem more work done soon. my order for some resin bases should arrive soon.

i ordered them through imperial games (a NZ mob). i tried paying via regular DD, after a week or 2 of waiting it didnt work, so i had to pay via paypal, made an account, and it took well over a week for the money to go thru. it went thru fine (at this stage i had ordered the bases about a month earlier), but the parcel got lost in the mail. all the while i was in regular communication with the owner of the business (brad mason). he explained that if i wasnted to wait until they got more bases from poland (about another 3 week wait) then hed ship them as soon as they arrived. i patiently waited for them to come, all the while i was keeping in fairly regular contact with brad. a few weeks ago he sent me an email saying that they should be here soon if i wanted to wait even longer, and that if i chose to, that hed sweeten the deal (ie chuch in some freebies), or hed give me a full refund. i chose to stick by him as id come this far, and wasnt about to quit. well, i just got an email the other day confirming that my new order had been sent. it didnt say what my freebie is, but im not too concerned, as the level of custmer service was asstounding. ive certainly never dealt with an online store as good as this one, and would happily go back.

i realise that its been about 2 maybe 3 months since i ACTUALLY ordered the bases, but the customer service offered along the way was, in all meanings of the word, "amazing"

would happily reccommend them to anyone :)

so yeah, once they come, ill get back into 40k, as ive been neglecting it for my computer :P

<snip>


If I can get another Black Reach set for $75.00 it'd be worth offloading the Marines to build up an Ork army.
The logistical issue with offloading said Marines to you specificaly is that I'm now pretty much permanently located in Melbourne.
Might get up to Sydney for Live though...

This is making me want to pull out my old Space Wolves. I was kinda proud of the paint jobs I did on some of those guys. Anyone in Sydney want to have a game when the new codices are all out? Haven't touched my 40k gear in years, and at the moment I'd rather use the new edition as an excuse to meet and play with someone new. ********************************************************************** Player name: thesorehead Location: Sydney Pref game time: Weekends - occasional weeknights Aspects: Gaming, though painting is fun I just don't have the space/time for it. Game: 40k Army: Space Wolves - ???? 1500? 2000? A few squads, dreadnought, transports etc. **********************************************************************

I'm aware of Scrapdragon, thanks for the reminder anyway :)

Got mine from Mind Games on Swanston St for $75 - no shipping apart from on foot in my lunch break.
Not sure if they have any more left at that price though.

New codices next month, hopefully an updated Blood Angels one online soon after that.

Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Black Templars and Space Wolves wont be getting updates so they match the new Vanilla Marine codex coming out, gotta play a codex chapter to get the tasty new toys.

Here's my WIP on the stuff from Black Reach, started painting the terminators in the box and been working on the seargent. The rest of the squad are getting their arms magnetised so I can swap out weapon configs as needed.
Still trying to perfect my colour scheme, yellow is a bitch.
Have to finish the weapons, his chest plate banner thing and the base, that will have to wait for my next days off.

Have only painted about 10 marines before this guy, and before that a handful of Necrons so still trying to get the hang of painting.

For the miniature scenery Khir you should be able to buy it from most gaming shops, or from scrapdragon for a bit cheaper I think.
