Finally purged myself of all of the Citadel paints, so now I have the much superior Vallejo line to work with. The exception is the Citadel washes, as they are simply the best on the market. I'm hoping that I'll be able to replicate the shading that I produced on some of my previous miniatures, but time will tell. The Crusader squad initiates definitely won't be super well painted, as they are basic troops, but I do have a certain standard that I'm trying to live up to. Unfortunately, this is a little difficult on the models I'm painting currently, as they have their weapons attached already and that makes the painting process much more difficult.
Nevertheless, crunch time is upon me. I need to start cracking if I'm going to get my shit painted in time for Nova Open. The list itself is pretty much done, with some minor tweaks possibly coming (i.e. plasmaguns or flamers). :)
A lot of my marines for my gunline army are still in pieces to allow for easier painting. Thus, they won't be put together until they have their paint jobs done. I do want to put together my Terminator squad though, as I can still get to all of the areas of the armor when they are assembled. I still need to put searchlights on the Predators/Razorbacks though. What do I need to purchase yet to make my list WYSIWYG?
- 1x Terminator squad, plus the bits for another CML.
- 3x Land Speeder Typhoons
