Hey all!

I thought it best if I make a proper topic here, which will track my Epic progress as I make it.

On my plate right now is a full Grey Knights army based on the current 1.3.1 list:

I've been experimenting and I think I've found a pretty good looking metallic colour to go with:

Later on I will return to finishing off some Space Wolves, and hopefully some Eldar.

Awful photo but glad to have it done. This is the first Epic blister I think I've ever finished properly!

When mixed with some Razorbacks will be able to move about a couple of large Strike Teams.

The next things to do for Grey Knights! Haven't glued the infantry yet, need to finish undercoating these vehicles.

Nice clean paint job on the Rhinos!

Look forward to seeing how the rest turn out ;)

Just a little update. Had the urge to do these - they're test bases before I try infantry or basing vehicles.

I decided that since Storm Ravens basically have skimmer rules rather than flyers I would base them low to the ground like my land speeders.

Pretty happy with these - Calthan Brown drybrushed up to Kommando Khaki, with blue grey ruins.

Need to do 10 of these for tank bases, then I can varnish the rhinos and call them my first really finished Epic units. =-P

nice work on the bases :) you work backwards to me, I get the minis done then think about basing... need to get away from that approach....

Heh, well the thing is - I am being super delicate with some ita. infantry and I was worrying about colour schemes for bases - thought it best to try some of these first. Also I have been feeling despondent when I try to sit down and paint warmaster so I thought I should follow my muse and do these as the rhinos went so fast / well.

Small thing done but feels good - 10 Thingaz bases - with the rhinos glued to them. The 4 spares are for Razorbacks. Might need to get a couple more for Purgation squads at some point.

Currently basecoating the Razorbacks

Hmm, I thought I had commented on this previously but apparently not. Lovely work on the Rhinos and bases!
