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.

Eagle warriors terminator

I've been eager to get around to these guys because I've always thought that space marine terminators were the coolest models ever. I've still got the original metal terminator squad and a couple with cyclone missile launchers that I've stripped of my old Blood Angels paintjob, might give them a new look some day, for old times' sake. So here he is, the first Eagle Warriors termie from the Black Reach set:

I've noticed that a lot of colour schemes for these guys use contrasting colours for the helmets, so I thought I'd pick out the helmet in the same red that I use for the marines' bolters. Ooh! and I almost forgot - here's the moulded shoulder pad, done from an impression of a standard marine shoulder icon:
