Strike Force

Lamenters Strike Force

Posted by Picasa

My currently fully painted Lamenters force.  Small, but the initial momentum is done and I have a lot of stuff that is really close to completion.  Having that painted core is great, because it really inspires you to flesh out the army.   Right now I can field just shy of 1500 points, though that would not be an even remotely competitive army.  I am almost done with a number of units and vehicles that will let me field a decent little army though.

Near completion: Baal and normal Predator, Land Raider Crusader/Redeemer (magnetized for either option), 10 additional assault marines, Sanguinary Priest with jump pack, and 5 lightening claw terminators.  Each unit will take a couple hours in the evening to complete.

Sanguinary Guard almost completed

WIP: Sanguinary Guard w/ Chapter Banner

 I worked on the Lamenters Chapter Banner for the Sanguinary Guard tonight.  Blocked all base colors in, still need to wash/highlight and cleanup a bit, but I’m happy with how it looks.  The free hand is getting a little easier, but I have a long way to go still.

I also primed a bunch of stuff. Vindicator, Sanguinary Priest, and bunch of various weapons options for Predators.  Decided to take a break from the Storm Raven and Land Raider that I’ve been spending a lot of time on.  Hoping to have a couple hours tomorrow to get some more painting done.

More Storm Raven WIP

Had a little more time to work on the Storm Raven. It’s coming together nicely, but still a lot of details to paint. The main challenge tonight was working while the wife was also working on a sewing project. We were sharing a long folding table in front of the TV and when she started sewing it felt like I was trying to paint in an earthquake. Her sewing machine is older than she is and really starts to shake things up. So much to the point I spilled a new jar of paint while trying to paint. I had to give up after a while, but did manage to get a nice coat of brighter yellow on the top of the vehicle. I did manage to do a little shading, though I think I will try and gloss coat it and try using oil paints to do the line shading.  I haven’t decided if I”m going to do weather or not yet.

On the Table

A quick update on what I’m working on right now.  The Landraider and Storm Raven.  Still a lot to go, but they are starting to come together.  Also put together a Vindicator and got a box of Death Company.  Not a ton of progress, but we spent a couple weeks out of town.
