    My first squad after four years!

    Well, my hands heavy and my paints thick. Here's the first marine I broke in, turned out lumpy and slightly fruity, so his name is Ned. I'm not going to touch him up, every group needs someone to pick on. :shifty:

    This is Sergeant Ratjack, he's only really in a good mood when he's shoving his 200 pound ceramite boot up an unsuspecting Xeno's ass.

    Sorry to double post guys, but I totally forgot about the rest of what I wanted to post! So these marines are from the Battle for Macrage boxed set. Picked it up yesterday and decided not to stick with the ultramarines. The whole scenario could have been more exciting to me. I'm really not sure what to grab next Friday. A squad and a tank for some race. Space marines are easy to paint so I'll probly stick with them but the temptation to buy a Tau battle force or something is overwhelming. Not the smartest of ideas all the same.

    EDIT: I wish the boxed set came with a different race, nyds are sucky and overpowered. This is pretty ignorant coming from someone who doesn't even remember the rules, but they always seem to win battle reports.

    Well, I guess those are good for a first-time-in-years effort. Remember to thin your paints next time.

    Also, you don't have to double post, click the edit button on the bottom right hand corner of your post.

    I concur: thin your paints down: you can use 60% paint for 40% water.

    For the highlights, go for 75% paint/25% water, and make them closer to the original color: right now, it looks almost like another color.

    Also, you might want consider inking the models to blend the highlights together.

    Keep up the good work, and welcome back to the hobby!

    Well, its been four years. You thin up your paints you should be fine. And if you want to reclaim those guys, submerse them in Brake fluid for about a day, then scrub, you should be fine.

    Your scheme seems like it'll work well though.

    143rd Airborne Badgers (99.9% done)
    159th Corsair Rifles (35% done))
    69th Armored Wall Busters (95% done)

    Total 197 men, 12 tanks, 4 Heavy Artillery Pieces

    Yeah, for four years off, that is pretty good. If you want an exciting force, I would suggest playing Eldar, or Tau. Those, IMO, are very dynamic races, either winning majorly, or dying horribly.

    That's most likely what I'll do, then found a chapter later on named "The Silver Crescents" with a diff paint job, Thanks dude.

    I collected eldar back in the day, and I was really attracted to Tau's shootyness, but unimpressed with their CC. Maybe a fifty percent kroot army, with heavy drones, would work to my taste. :yes:
