That is really good news, because vallejo paints are one of the things that people have wanted, and were unable to get through Darren. Im glad this got posted.

How were the casts on those bases? I've found Micro Art stuff to be pretty sketchy for QC. I've got some of their bases and they're discworld figs. The bases were awfully poor but the figs were fantastic.

Casts weren't to bad Scott. Couple of air bubbles, but not on the top of the bases, just under. Fairly small, so I don't mind.

Aaaannnnd here's the beginning of the Land speeder storm! I gotta say, its a beautiful and super detailed model, and a breeze to put together (though there is literally a bizillion bitz).



As you can see, I've converted the HB the model comes with to a flamer, as it does make more sense Razz



I've magnetized the LSS to the base, as the base is heavy, and those stands are notoriously snap-y. I'm also gunna paint the crew separate, to make my life easier.

When i looked at i the first thing that caught my eye was the heavy flamer which i thought looked really awesom. I am not familiar with the kit so i figured it was actually the one that came with the model. Nice work

The flamer caught my eye as well. It stands out really well but not intrusively.

Lol, that is a sentinel heavy flamer im pretty sure. i just cut off the back of the HB, and fitted the two together, so it fits in the gunners hands, and onto the firing rail.

Is not Greg! Razz

I just used the whole flamer, added a sentinal fuel tank to the side and when angled right looked ok with respect to the gunner. Nothing wrong with yours and the way you did it, like I said looks good. Should be a really cool looking army.

You are inspiring me to get painting again. Its probably been a month or two since I picked up a brush.

Thanks for the offer. I'll be sure to hit you up if I need any. I did order lots from the warstore on a bit order Cam and I did a long time ago, so I should be good for awhile.

Update!

Been plugging away at this army, instead of studying for finals (groan Sad )....

About half done these guys! Many layers it took to get an even color on the storm, and I may have to go back in for some more yellow detailing. Lots more to go, but she's getting there!






I came across a problem when assembling the crew= They are almost all molded with Bolters! Sure, some cool bolter reload poses, but my scouts all have ccw's! So cut cut cut, now they are correctly weapon'd.









More to follow!

UPDATE!!!! xmas was waaay busy, so time for painting was difficult. But still , I manged to get the LS storm to 80% completion, and thought I would share. I still have to do the vehicle stripes (I will do a couple of digital paint-overs to check cool patterns), the glow from the engine cladding and the sarge's sword. I prefer freehand symbols to decals, as I can never make decals look natural. Of course I just had to pick one of the most intricate chapter symbols...

But you still managed to make it look good. A couple of the fingers look a little wonky but that's only a very minor issue and isn't easily seen.

... and yes, no matter how many times I look at the model, that's all I can find to nit-pick.
