So, after stalking many of our very talented painters, the time has come for me to improve my painting skills. The fact that I've been chosen as our newfounded gaming clubs "Master of paint" has nothing at all to do with it :p
I currently have 20 assault marines, of whom 5 are painted red, but will get a little bit of tlc with some paint remover, and 15 who are just primed, as well as 80 or so IG infantry models. First call of duty is the assault marines.

I will be taking my time on these, making sure that I'm happy with how they look before I move on. The IG troops are primed black, and I intend to blast them with my airbrush armed with foundation paint to speed up the process a little bit.. At least I'll get some practice painting faces :p
I might even buy a few boxes of other armies, be it 40k or fantasy, just so I can practice various techniques and get some variety, as I can imagine painting 80 troops and some marines will leave me wanting something else in between.
