It has been so long that i had forgotten how to use a paint brush, but life has taken some turns for me and i am able to hobby again. So where i left off about a year ago i had a few pics of the very initial stages of painting for a vanguard company of imperial fists. This company was gonna be all about breachers and armour using the Stone Gauntlet Rite of War.
So with a local fun tournament just over the horizon run by the guys at A Traitors Hand, I've pulled my finger out and got back to putting some more paint on these guys. Here are a few pics of my recent progress
The good trusty Sicarian. This bad boy has been so reliable in my games that whenever i'm writing a list, this guy is on the books before i even consider troops.
In terms of little detail, i have the finer touches of the head techmarine, commanding the companies armour from on top of the sicarian, to finish. A few final details, air brushing some lighting effects on the las cannon coils and some weathering and the Sicarian will be finished
My first breacher squad. These guys are the anvil of my force. I intend to run apothecaries with them for extra durability. I've almost finished the first squad with just some finer details and weathering to go. I'm weathering everything in greys and browns, trying to give the look of the marines trudging through blasted and shattered concrete and defenses.
Nothing like a tournament to give your painting purpose!!!
