So far, its going slow... about 12 hours of work and I have one ALMOST ready to be primed...

And I'm running out of sharp Xacto blades. You can see the Armbands of Mourning on their left pauldron, and I am hoping the poses look a little more dynamic.
Thoughts, so far?

I'm liking the models, very dynamic, much more so than the basic models. The leg seems ti have turned out well too. Salty sea-dogs of the Imperium..... I like it.
Looking forward to seeing more progress.
Inquistion force WIP. Pics on posts 17 and 23.
I went ahead and finished one off, almost, to show off the final look:
Not bad I think. I'm not too happy with the black so I may paint over it and try again with some hands on help.
Loving the posing there, you seem to have put alot of thought into the modelling of this army, aswell as the background. I may be keeping up to date on this, reading your updates, as I find it an interesting army. Keep up the good work!
(As an off note, woo! 500th post!)

Well I'm improving on the paint work. I haven't posed any more lately, but I have also gotten the Black Reach box and started to customize my Dreadnaught.
Continuing with the "Salty Sea Dogs' theme, I put a few barnacles on the Dreadnaught, and gave him a rather nifty (if silly looking) periscope.
For the theme of my Chapter (Which is, they are based on a world entirely of water and specialize in Aquatic warfare), I figure... the Dreadnaughts CANT swim. Maybe they could float if you gave them pontoons or water wings, so they obviously, logically, WALK along the bottom of the river/ocean and stuff till they get to the attack point.
Sadly, I forgot to take pictures of the Dreadnaught's pet Starfish, and my camera is dead. I will get pictures of it next time.
And the beginnings of my Dreadnaught, who will be named Coelacan.
Btw, I used a brand of dullcoat on these guys. OMG its amazing. you know how regularly, GW brand paint still is a bit glossy? This stuff takes this all off.
on this guy I made the mistake of putting hiw ater in FIRST before I dullcoated it, so it went all misty. A coat of gloss helped that, and you can see I put 'ardcoat gloss paint on places where I think water would collect - the bottoms of his pouches, in soft armor, etc...
Looks awesome so far, I like it when creativity and fluff is the center of an army, makes it way more special. The fluff is great, I like the sea theme and all the small details you included, very sweet.
Paint scheme is neat as well, half and half's are always a good look to me, and it plays into the storm theme well. I look forward to more!
Lots of updates!
I finished one off to see how he looks. Decent. I have done more work since then though....
I wanted to give my dreadnaught a few 'looks old' things. So barnacles! Sadly, I dropped him and one of the barnacles came off, and I couldnt find it I hope they wills tay on now. I may have to start glueing them down....
And of course, a Starfish. I called her Alice:
I was thinking of giving the dread a periscope, however, I am not sure how to yet, so for now he's periscopeless.
I was going ot use the decals for the white arrows, but I LOST THE SHEET. Gah. So I had to hand paint them.
Since these pics I've done much better on the lightning - adding highlights and other stuff to them, as well as sharpening them out on the Dreads. you can find more pics at
But there's just so many!
Hope you enjoy.
