Christmas has come and gone, and Mrs Brevik got me the rather lovely Forgeworld Model Masterclass book: linky.
Add this to the Blanchitsu article I talked about previously, plus some inspiration from a friend t'other side of the pond and I'm now tempted by some "Imperial Guardiness".
Currently I have one Sentinel (mint, still in box...) won in the last local painting competition, one "inherited" Chimera, that needs to be stripped and "bitzed", plus 10 old metal Catachans, 5 Vostroyans (one painted so far, see below) and 5 snap fit Cadians (one painted, picture to follow). A good start I think - although I'll probably need the codex at some point.
I reckon this might work...
I also ought to add that my dear lady got me all (yep, all!) the new Legion of the Damned miniatures, and a Land Speeder Storm.
My wife officially rocks.
The Land Speeder will be the start of a Revilers Chapter army, working on a completely different force make up than the Crimson Fists I have.
Painting wise, I've been applying some Blanchitsu-style (Me obsessed much? Probably...) to some Empire Greatswords. I've also battle damaged a Lamenters Space Marine sergeant (which I'm really happy with) and I've been trying to paint Lysander in a Crimson Fists scheme.
As always, pictures to follow at some point...
Happy New Year all!
