[40K] The Flag Expands!

The Mexi-Marines, not satisfied with conquering just a corner of my table, have expanded their empire.

I'm in the home stretch now- I have an easily counted number of figures left to get the basic colors onto.

Also, a better shot of that metal Dread, just because.He needs a lot of detail work, but he's BA all on his own.

I've spoken with my client and have detail colors for backpacks, jet packs, bolters, chest eagles, and washing laid out. I dug through my paints and found a special treasure- an OLD bottle of Citadel Red Wash- the color, even in the bottle, is STUNNING. I'm really excited to use it.

Now that it's getting colder, I'll be painting much more- I expect to have these guys ready for the next League.


  1. Are you going to finish a couple of figures to start, so you can figure out the reast of the colors, etc. Or are you going to do one color at a time on all of the figures like you have been?

    I always like to work on a few figures (5-10) at a time and get them finished before going on. That way I have a finished product to look at.


  2. Hey, are you sure those aren't the Itali-Marines? :P

  3. Tom,

    I hadn't really planned to- I don't have the attention span for it, to be honest. I love getting "one thing done" and being able to move on. However, once the chests get done, I think I'll have to because it gets detail heavy at that point and I get disgustingly slow.

    ze & Chumby- ha! I didn't see it until you pointed it out.

  4. I can't wait to see what these guys look like when they're complete!
