Many thanks for all of the comments!

The sicaran just needs a few coats of matte varnish now and he will be ready to post up, so expect updates tomorrow.

++ Legion Sicaran Battle Tank Lancea ++
e1sCpBY.jpg
bwIn9Si.jpg
++ Often deployed alongside Sicaran Battle Tank Verutum, it is one of many Sicaran Tanks attached to the 38th Company. Sicarans
Lancea and Verutum would register seven traitor Knight-Titan kills between them during the first few hours of the betrayal, 
Astartes skill and determination out-winning and outmaneuvering the human Knight-pilots. ++
 
 
So, it has been nearly a week since I promised to post up the Sicaran, I've decided to forego the varnish until the weather picks up as I normally spray outside. I plan to buy a second as I think they always look nice in pairs hence the little bit of fluff. Any comments/criticism is appreciated!

Looking great! They do work well in pairs.

The weathering is really well done, just the right amount imo.

 Thanks mate, glad you like them!

Cheers! Glad you like the weathering, I'm thinking about buying some weathering powders to use use on the tank tracks and the lower legs of marines but I've never used them before.

 

Currently working on 9 tactical marines which have been painted blue and had the black bits done so far, and I'm working on the command squad too!

Haven't done much this past week. Painted a bare head for the captain so I'll try and get pics of that up soon!

New Sicaran is great, bud. Giving me a serious case of indecision whether to keep mine Blackshields or paint it XIII Legion, yours is a fantastic advert for how good it can look in gritty blue.

Paint it in blue mate, that's always the best way to go.  ;)

Thought I'd get some pics up of the Terminators that I recently finished bar decals.

Hope you like them! No more updates for a weeks as I've broken my thumb and can't paint at the moment which is rather annoying.  <_<

Many thanks!

The pain is easing up slightly so I might try to get some more work done, but we shall see how that pans out!

Sorry for the double post but I thought I would post up a family photo of everything that's painted so far!

As you can see, it's pretty pathetic so far but I have plans for a lot more. I currently have a Land Raider, 7 Suzerain, another veteran squad, a converted chaplain, a volkite support squad and a B@C contemptor sitting in a basecoat of blue. I also still need to buy a second sicaran and 2 more rhinos to have a playable force that I'm happy with. I also want to buy Guilliman at some point too but that's a ways off.
 
Cheers, James

Not pathetic at all. We all start off small and build up. It's taken me about 5 years to build up to the level that I have at the moment, albeit I am a very slow painter. It's about enjoying what you're doing. Your force looks really good and is cohesive along a clear theme.

Cheers mate!

I'm not far off from having a field-able 2000 point force. Once I've hit that milestone I think my painting will pick up hopefully.

Just to prove I am still working on my army slowly, I've got some WIP pics of my second veteran squad to post up. Apologies in advance for the shocking photo quality, I did them rather quick and they looked okay on the small screen of my phone! Will get much better pics up once I have finished them.
 
9c3yuar.jpg

Swapped the original Sergeant out and replaced one of the marines with a newer one.
 
With the release of 8th, I am now having to edit my army to fit the 8th edition marines army list, as I have no heresy players to play against only 40k opponents that have no interest in starting 30k armies just to play with me. It's still a 30K army fluffwise, just using the 40K rules. Luckily I don't have too much to change, as my army was pretty basic compared to most 30k lists and I can still use my sicaran easily with the FW rules. 
I'm also not happy with how basic the B@C tactical marines look compared to my veterans, so I am thinking about retiring them and using my veteran tacticals as regular 40k tacticals. I'd be interested in anybody's thoughts on this?
 
Thank you for looking and I hope to get finished pics of this squad up over the week!

I'd not nescessarily retire them. Headcanon them as new recruits with factory-fresh, unembellished gear?

Thanks for the suggestion! I think once I have swapped out two of the marines for a heavy weapon marine and a special weapon marine for each squad it might add a little more character to them. Still slowly plodding away painting this veteran squad, nearing completion though. I'm busy these next few days though so wont be able to get an update until the end of the weekend I think!
