Wow. So I signed up for this thing called Tale of Painters. Wonder how that happened...
Kidding aside, this will hopefully give me that little kick that'll make me finish the minis I have sitting here, in various states of assembly, painting and priming, as well as expand it to reach 2000 points, or thereabouts. But since I don't like spending too much money on a hobby, I decided to make a "I want this in my army" list. So hopefully I'll be able to get ahold of it, even though my local store just stocks troops for Marines, and a few Ork, Tau and Eldar vehicles, and no blisters for 40k.
The list I'm aiming to complete is as follows (Gonna try to go WYSIWYG)
2x Tactical squads
Bike Squadron of 5
Devastator squad (10 models)
That, plus the extra stuff I choose for them, will land me around 2k points. Will post pictures as soon as I can get around to taking a few

Gather round people, it's picture time!
What I have so far:
1st Tactical Squad:
2nd Tactical Squad:
This is what I have gotten so far. Will finish up this first, so I have something to play with, and buy the other stuff as it falls naturally. Gonna go to a larger city in a couple of weeks, which have a store with a bigger selection of miniatures than my local store. Hope to pick up a couple of HS units there, as well as some tools I need, and a few paints which my local store doesn't have in stock, and probably never will :p
Good luck and Emperor protect!
Nice progress so far!

So finally got everyone primed. Have laid down the red basecoat on one terminator, and I've started the dreadnought. The problem I have is that I have to force myself to spend lots and lots of time painting one model. I need diversity, so I tend to jump back and forth between models. Plus I need to maybe lay down a timetable for what to be finished when, so I'll have a basic time guideline to stick to. Will be getting lots of time to paint the coming week, as my work contract finished today. So 8 days before I go in a vacation, where I'll pick up some more models, probably a predator, as well as some IC. Will post picures later today!
I like the red you have layed down on the tactical marines, but looking through your photos a couple of them seem to have different coloured red on them, like the missle launcher carrier in the fifth photo i think?
Did you use another type of paint or is that just a result of lighting?
Looking good, nice progress so far as well
The guy with the missile launcher is primed with white, painted blood red, then I inked him with red ink just to see how it turned out. Not really happy with the result, but he looks ok from a distance, so not sure if I'll do anything to him at the momemt. Will see how much time I have to spare when I paint. First priority is getting everyone red, and ready for the tabletop. However, I have now joined the ranks of the unemployed, but just for a 2 week period, so I'll try to cram som painting into my days of nothing to do :p
Well, my 2 weeks of nothing to do turned out to be 2 weeks with almost no time to spare at all :p And I'm out of the ToP, but I'll follow along anyways, just because I can!
So far I've just painted my 5 terminators, and working on an assault squad, dreadnought and 2 tactical squads and mephiston, so hopefully there'll be some more updates before christmas. And my birthday is coming soon, so hopefully I'll be able to afford some HS as well. Thinking Land Raider, Whirlwind and Baal Predator, but we'll see how it goes.
This is what I have so far, with more coming soon. I have been stricken with the swineflu, so I'll try to get some painting done tomorrow. Finished 1 assault marine today, so maybe I'll finish the rest of them tomorrow and post them up.
Yummy termies, why no special weapon like Cyclone or AC? GET DEM DA BIG GUNZZZZ
