I managed to get some painting done today...
The first 10-man squad is under way. I've decided to go for an old school kind of scheme using ultra blue against various browns & bronze.
The exo-armoured trikes are getting their basic colours sorted,
whilst the basic Exo-armoured squats have had the bases worked on. So far that's two layers of GW snow, I'll probably add a third.
Before I get much further with painting the army I need to get a whole load of bolters to swap out most of the lasguns on the warriors, figure out how to equip the Warlord, Hearth guard and Living ancestor - and therefore acquire or convert arms/weapons, plus I need about half a dozen 60mm round bases and a few of eh new bike bases.
I like the look of the 'Mechanical Hammers MKII' available on maxmini and might go for them for the Hearthguard.
Not sure yet.
