20 years ago I used to love painting "little metal men" and playing the very first edition of what was to become the hugely successful Warhammer 40K game, so recently I decided to revisit my youth. So far this has consisted of going out and buying some minis, and then wonderful-wife going out and buying ALL THE MINIS IN THE WORLD, and a selection of paints and brushes. With a couple of hours each weekend to paint them, this is going to take a while. There they sit in the corner now... looking at me... judging me... Anyway, one thing that I've found motivational is the wealth of pictures and "how to" guides on other painters' blogs, so I decided to post some of my own humble efforts here. Hope you like 'em.

Infantry time - SM scout


Had some metal scouts hanging around so I thought I'd see what they look like painted up in the Eagle Warriors scheme. So here we go:

Managed to get the eyes fairly straight, but a little large so he's got that look of being engaged in a stare-out contest. I guess that it's good for a sniper to have keen vision though eh? Here's a bit of detail from the back:

...and a stab at freehanding the chapter icon:

Got a couple more of these guys to do, but I think I'll focus on the main batch of Black Reach marines and get them out of the way first. The Realm of Battle gameboard is also on the cards, all base-coated and ready to go. More on that later...

Anyway, that's all for now - have a good one folks - hope the dice are kind to you this week!
