    Currently on the docket for January

    24 skeleton warriors on commission
    15 stormcast on commission (10 magenta and silver, 5 dark blue and silver)
    A baggie of tyranid spore mines on commission (maybe 12? Have not counted.)

    And then here's my prep pile. This was before priming.

    Warmed up to 2019 by finishing 5 32mm bases.

    Also threw the first thin coat of red on a test model for the sororitas. I plan to finish her in the morning.

    The red is a bit bright for my taste.
    Good work though.

    Thank you and I understand your thought on the red.

    I settled on the bloody rose, and more specifically the bright red, because SoB are warriors of the ecclisarchy and, just like custodes, to me they should stand out from other imperial forces.

    In today's progress I basecoated 3 primaris reivers and 1 tactical marines in mk iii plate.

    A tad more sloppy than I wanted... But I can fix that and they will do.

    5 terminators complete. The helmets are a bit Stark, but such is the correct heraldry for veterans.

    Looks good.


    White is notoriously hard to paint. I stay away from it like the plague.

    I try to. If I must, I either do multiple thin coats or build up from a soft gray

    First 5 skeletons for a commission lot. Also probably to appease @NIGHTBRINGER with spooky Bois.

    It definitely shows and is well worth the effort. The wood on the shields is superb. Some of your finest work!
