Firstly I recently started working with Beasts of War producing some hobby content for their videos. Its been great fun working with the guys, who if you haven't checked out the site, is well worth visiting. While preparing videos for them, I have learnt so much more, not only about the game, but about the background and history of 40k.
On the hobby front I have been working away on many projects, most guard related as usual, but I have also started my white scars legion force- more on this later.
So on the Astra Militarum front, I have painted up my final infantry platoon for my 5th company- This includes Special weapons teams (demo charges and snipers), 3 infantry squads (with snipers) and a Lascannon heavy weapons squad. I will post up more pictures soon, but for now, heres the basic platoon...
I also had to dig out my Cypher model and get him repainted for a series of battle reports over at Beasts of War. If you are a back stager, then they are well worth a watch.
I finally realised that I had to get an airbrush, I couldn't ever manage to get the white smooth enough, so I picked a cheap starter kit up, and honestly, I wouldn't go back!!! I started with the terminators as they will probably see the least action as time goes on.
Still a lot of work to go on this squad, if anyone has any suggestions for the claws I'd be very grateful!:)
Hopefully I will work up to a nice Iwata Eclipse, but for now, I will build up my technique with base coats. still very happy with the results.
