Alright, I haven’t taken many pictures of these guys in terms of the progress work, but they’ve occupied a lot of my time.
I’ve been trying to paint them up in a similar colour palette as the Vendetta which has previously been completed. Grey, with desert yellow camouflage.
For those who aren’t familiar with the Vendetta…
So the Scions came out with mostly grey, but a yellow stripe across the shoulder to tie it all together. Their guns are the dark grey that you find on the Vendetta running up the central fuselage.
I had to do a proof of concept before I painted the rest, so one of my guys was finished well ahead of time.
And here he is, surrounded with other portions of my army to show how it fits in…
Overall, I think they turned out pretty well….
I’m struggling to take good pictures of these guys, but the lighting isn’t really doing wonders for me here…
I think this one kind of turned out more or less how I wanted it to.
Oh. And I have a table at home now. It’s not perfect, but it’ll work. I ordered a F.A.T. Mat from Frontline Gaming as well, so it should be looking very sharp very soon. I’m pretty stoked about that.
The Dust Buster is proxying for a Land Raider.
I’ve also started base-coating the Bullgryns, fully aware that I’m a terrible person and should finish painting my troopies at some point in time. They just don’t get used as much!!!
My wife wasn’t feeling well, so wound up having my weekly game in the comfort of my own home, with my admittedly poor looking table. After having nearly tabled the Dark Angels on the virtue of a hot rolling streak and a Storm Eagle Rocket previously, the Dark Angel’s Captain is taking a new approach to his list, one which should be very apparent as you read on…

Been slacking behind in my progress updates — I’ve pretty much wrapped up the 5x Scions and went out and impulse bought a few Bullgryns, just because. I know Dragons Claw would be proud (from HoP).
Anyways, watching Fiddler on the Roof with the wife and putting these guys together ain’t such a bad night, particularly after this:
WOOP! Seats that would have normally resulted in a second mortgage (if I indeed had a first mortgage) fell into my lap yesterday. It was awesome….
SUCK IT, DETROIT. Maybe you should pay your water bill.
Got in a great game with
Legacy40k’s Blood Templars / Ordos Xenos at the FLGS, in which I wanted to fit some Scions and my new Commissar in with some of my usual Guard favourites. The results were mixed, but chalk it up to LEARNIN’ and call ‘er a day! Continue reading Battle Report: AM & MT vs. Space Marines (1,500 pts)
As always, I got distracted. Very distracted.
I undercoated Commissar Potapenko and had at him. He lends well to detailed painting, and frankly he turned out AWESOME.

I’ve played many games with the Imperial Guard over the past two years, but I haven’t played very much with my 3rd Edition army, the Orkz.
Granted, I play a lot AGAINST them, but it’s not quite the same…
Continue reading Gaining Battle Experience: Orkz!
Been a busy week and weekend! I managed to get a game in with my Orkz! Really my focus has been more on real life than on miniature plastic mans lately. It took me a week to cover all of these photos, but y’know how it is sometimes… 🙂
where I left off with respect to the regular troopies for the infantry platoon:
