Recent tinkering

Got my first objective marker finally done. Really happy how it looks.. The matt varnish gave it sort of crappy finish but luckily didnt ruin it completely. Gotta get my self new bottle of varnish.. Really enjoyed painting it.

"No one is left behind"

 Also started working on some other models. Got this idea while browsing through my bits and trying some poses. Thought making a soldier on guard dury or something might look cool. I might use it in some diorama maybe.

Final warning

 Also made one Darkon wasteland thug.

There are numerous gangs in Darkon system. The vast wastelands are swarming with thugs, criminals and animals who will do anything to get their daily dose. Many of them are former soldiers who were expelled from the army or criminals exiled from community. Some are just regular people who have had hard lives and lost the meaning.

Some thugs seek refuge among the original habitants of Darkon, "The beastkin". Beastkin often live in the darkest corners of the world, where no sane man wants to go. Those areas may be highly radioactive or there may be biochemical threats that only beastkin can survive. Some have settled in old abandoned mines. The gangs and beastkin may form groups large enough to go full war against the imperial army to fight for better living territories.

Another objective marker.
Shot down enemy intel drone. Worth obtaining and investigating

Tau sends a lot of drones to scout the planets of Darkon to reveal any strategic locations or obtain valuable information. One single drone can carry enough information to solve a whole battle or even a whole war. That information must not get to hands of enemy and that is why every drone must be hunt down and destroyed.

In some places even the citizens are encouraged to hunt down TAU drones by awarding a high bounty on every destroyed drone brought to army outpost. Campaign has been very succesful and even lead to birth of groups of "drone hunters" who live by just hunting down drones.

New wip storm trooper.

Chimera almost done. Still needs dust, varnish and some unit markings, but consider it done.

Still doing it old school! Started another tank

Started painting another tank. WITH A BRUSH.. Felt bit like a last mohican because so many people have all those fancy airbrushes nowadays. Been thinking about buying myself a one but I have no idea what model and compressor should I buy. Any suggestions? I've heard badgers are quite ok?

But anyways, made the pattern with a pencil and started brushing. Still need to do some more weathering, high lights and details.

Also added some hay to sniper teams base.. Still have to make few details maybe, add sand and then I can start painting these guys.

Company command squad part V

If you count the sniper in, then its done! But probably I will still do few special weapons to be used in this squad if needed. Had fun painting the commander and it turned out pretty ok. Not sure about the dark trench coat though but on the other hand couldn't really come up with any other better colors. Wanted to make coat look old and worn.

Company command squad part IV

So almost there.. 3/5 done. Have had some problems with my vallejo paints but managed to get them somehow work. Propably going to need to buy a new set of paints.. Some of the bottles seem to have pretty major issues. :D

Company Executive Officer Cpt. Coleman.

Lt. Lester. Responsible for communications and gathering reconnaissance information.

 Lt. "The Beard" Haddock. One of the most respected officers and for reason. Has gone trough numerous battles and knows enemy tactics and behavior better than anyone.

Sniper team progress

Slowly advancing.. Added few plants, some ground, shovel and deck of cards. Here are few CLOSE ups. Cant wait to start painting this. Been also thinking a lot of fluff lately and have some pretty neat ideas in my mind and hopefully I manage to write even some of it down and share it with you.
