Thanks B!
No gaming no...Just a bit of a tinkering... The troops are from vanguard.

The centurion will be joined by two buddies soon. I'll wait till there's some paint on them...

And the new 40k namely the primaris: wtf is going on with those daffy looking bikes and that clownshoe of an atv...
I've been converting up some atalan jackals(with palanite and scout bitz) into scout bikers out of protest... Lol

Haha, not a fan then?!  I actually quite like the bikes. They look seriously chunky. The Quad thing not so much, I'd have preferred that as a guard thing. But hey hum, just don't take it I guess?  ::)

I really like the new Marines that are coming out. Especially the Assault marines. They're just very dynamic. I just which the Veterans with Swords and shields are that dynamic. Why on earth have then stood still?!?! Boooooring!

Yeah. The assault marines are kinda nice. Should fit in with the intercessor stuff seamlessly to make some rather dynamic guys! Tis a shame the vets are a bit static. I guess they are trying to make them look solid and immovable in the manner of the terminators they're replacing..? Could have had a bit of action to a couple though, a beheading swing of an overhead trust or something. Still who am I to talk. Nearly all my sharks are stationary, posing up a storm. And yeah who am I kidding about the bikes. You know I'll get some! Just not that atv.... Just no...

urgh the atv, it's just a tiny bat mobile

those bikes also have no ground clearance so i refuse to beleive they work

given how the primaris were emulating the older legions in arms, armour and structure, i was really hoping for jet bikes
theres no such thing as over kill, its just making sure

Nah got to disagree there. I'm so glad they aren't jetbikes. As I hate the hover tanks... Funny how polar opinions can be eh?

heavy done:

god this phone camera is so shit. its not doing the paintjob any favours at all. on this screen theres almost no colour definition of the variation of skintone, or anything really whatsoever... nevermind the lack of focus.

must dig that luminex out again for some real pics soon...

You think that makes you feel old huh? I just touched up some Imperial Cruisers that have been with me for 20 years?? No... Please no that can't be right...  :o

Everything is looking great. Oh, and my sympathies regarding photos of toys in general - I've recently started sharing my stuff again after maaaaany moons and I've pretty much given up on the pictures looking like the actual models!   ;D:P

Yeah, most of my stuff was/is from when it was released originally... I've stripped/ repainted and rebuilt more stuff more times than I can remember now. Been at this (40k)since around '96... That was a lot of hair ago now...
