    So far I have the Farseer and three Warlocks and I have five Rangers. my "paint time" will start on march,

    I'll be painting the Rangers first, leaving me five points short, but the Seer Council will make that up. Or if I have time to spare I might sneak in a Warlock with the Rangers.
    I've never worked with resin and all the models are made of the stuff, so I'm 'painting my underwear brown' at the moment on how to do this. Any advice will be much appreciated.
    My idea is to give them a Chaos Black undercoat, then a Dheneb Stone basecoat and then a wash with Devlan Mud, and go over it with Bleached Bone, leaving the wash showing in the recess, details and fiddley bits like cloth and some parts of the armour will be done in Dark Angels Green. For markings I want to use Blood Red or Blazing Orange, I'm going for sort of a tribal look on the markings.

    Hehe thanks. I've just made a WiP shot of my to do models for March.

    A five man squad of Rangers.
    here they are out of the box:

    I've decided to cheat a bit because they are my first resin models and have made a little start already, so far two models have gotten their undercoat of Chaos Black.

    So, Made a start and got to the point were I feel like a WiP shot of my current progress.
    I've finished two Rangers, one has it's basecoat and another is in the process of getting it's undercoat.

    Resin is a proper bitch to work with, undercoat has to be done in at least two layers because it won't stick properly. Even after thoroughly cleaning it.
    For cleaning I have:
    -soaked them in cold soapy water for 2 hours.
    -thoroughly brushed them with a toothbrush that was dipped in hot soapy water
    -thoroughly brushed them with a toothbrush dipped in acetone free nail polish remover (I use it to remove paint with!)
    -thoroughly brushed them with a toothbrush dipped in regular cold water.
    -soaked them in regular cold water for an hour.
    So I'm pretty damn sure the release agent is gone, and so should anything I've used to clean them with.

    After finishing the first two I've come to the conclusion that I wont be using Bleached Bone, but just keep it with the Dheneb Stone. It's easier too paint, and I like the colour more. All the units will be tied together by a certain rune, and each individual squad will have a different colour of such a rune. So in example: 2 Squads of Howling Banshees will have the same rune marking (to show they are Howling Banshees) but squad A will have blue runes and squad B will have orange runes (to show that they are from different squads). I hope it makes sense. The rangers have the mark on their heads.
    There is still some touching up to do on them by the way. C&C more then welcome.

    BR

    Edit: I would like to thank Minus-T for his guide on making proper photographs of minis. For those interested it can be found Here.

    Thats a very nice start, always liked the Ranger models - they were some of my first ever GW purchases. Have some rep for the great progress.
    Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.

    Yeah, I've heard finecast can be a pain to keep it from flaking. Great job on keeping with it and having the patience to get it done.

    My favorite part of your rangers so far has to be the green on their cloaks. I like the way it turned out.
