Update: Basic camo is done on all the Scorps, plus basic weapon colours. Started details on a couple of them.

*** Addition to painting vow - I am adding 3 Howling Banshees. ***

Pic of the Scorps and the added Banshees in their current state below.

Yay my lictor came in so I'm working on it!

Progress Report: Genestealers have a basic coat of blue on them, and the lictor is half assembled.

One mostly-finished Ranger, who I used to work out the color scheme for the squad:


I was going to put a snow-camo pattern on their cloaks, but once I got the grey base coat on, I decided I liked the ghost-like look it gave the squad (not very apparent from the angle of this pic, I'm afraid), and decided to keep the flat color on the robes.

The other 4 models have been given a single coat to define the major color areas. I also have 5 backpacks which are only basecoated.

I've got to say that the new ranger models are outstanding. They have a ton of detail, much more than is apparent in any of the official photographs I've seen.

Okay I'm working predominantly on my Hawk Wraithlord but I won't count him because he's for the Modelling comp. I want to get through having done all three challenges, so I'm going to take a small load on this one:

5 dark reapers.

Quick WIP here. Colour scheme is black, boltgun, red gore and bone. Most colours laid down so far, inking next. Needs a lot of tidying up, but I'll do that when I've got more done.

I've based the warp spider now, except for the exarch, and I've based one ranger as well, just to see how it looks painted.

I've also found some stuff I'd like your professional opinions about, but I don't know whether this place is the right place for it. I'll ask it anyways, I could always remove it later
- I'm still looking for a spider which I could use as an example for my warp spider exarch. I already have a spider for the aspects (see previous post), but I'm still looking for something to make the exarch stand out a bit, but still make him fit in.
the only thing I could find for now is this (a bit too extravagant, pretty none the less), another one, this (pattern only), and something quite different (yes I saw every 2020 of them...*sigh*).
- My rangers will be wearing blue cloaks, as the basing will be blue as well. I'm still wondering whether I should also add a 'horizon' to the the cloak, like part of it reflects the sky (which will be slightly greenish). Has anyone ever tried this before?

@ magus_42: I couldn't agree more. Somehow the models just seem... 'tighter' or 'slicker', for a lack of better words. I even, for a small moment, considered to paint the GW logo on the tag, as even that looks really nice :D.

Another WIP update. Colours done, inking done, highlights on the fiddly bits done. I have left tracks and edge highlights plus some odds and ends.

And here's one of the last three vows in one pic.

I'm afraid I have to withdraw like this, but I'm lowering my vow to 8 warp spiders and 4 rangers. My studying isn't going as quick as I hoped, and I'm still working as on how to paint the exarch and the rangers, so that'll take more time as well. Still, not getting your vow's completed would be worse still...

Nyhh, meant for the ten terminators to be off my vow, guess I won't be able to complete it as long as they stay there.

Anyways, progress report:

17 Warriors of Minas Tirith Done
2 Easterlings Done
Space Marines: 2000 pts.
Eldar: 1000 pts.

Wood Elves: 3000 pts.
