Thanks man. The client was also happy, he's ordered another squad and dreadknight to go with them... I might have to think about setting up a showcase page on FB or something to point potential clients to, that isn't my personal page. Word of mouth will only get me so far, lol.

I have to admit I'm really enjoying flexing my skills on new and different paint schemes... I've just finish Angron for another client and he's looking really nice... I'll get pictures up either tomorrow or after the weekend.

Thanks man yeah it does look very nice on the shelf or did before it was picked up. I've heard whispers of it stirring up quite a fuss locally...

Think I may have missed the mark, I was calling you out for a pun on Flesh Tearers, being major fans of slaughter like Angron ;) :D

The pun was there. Not about flesh tearers per sey but about him ripping through marines. I'd managed to spell tear (tare) wrong and thought you'd picked up on that rather than the pun, lol.

I've done two rooms and today was my strongman event. I have another two room to go, but might sneak in a few cheeky units before I get back to it. We'll have to see though as it's schools half term holidays as well and my free time is not my own at the moment.

With the new edition all but landed I've not been buying anything new. I'm still on with finishing up the few models/units I have left to paint. These are almost all for my Blood Angels. I do have a piece from Wargames Exclusive that I'm working on but I've had to halt progress until I get to the shops for more paint! I've not been idle though and have finished up the last of the terminators for my Angels. I've also started on a couple of character models and 3 Terminator Librarians.

Group shots of my current full 1st Company... I need to add Sternguard and Vanguards at some point.

I think I still have at least one unit/box of Tactical Marines as well as some metal Sternguard I've not quite made my mind up as of yet as to what I'm going to make them up as?

Thank you man. To be fair I'm a little put off by the idea of having to paint a hoard army, lol. I'm sure I could do it but that mental block is a big obstacle!

I have finally painted up a full Vanguard squad I know a bit bland on the weapons load out but I'm sure the 5 melta pistols will spice things up a bit!

I've had a few people tripping over them selves about that banner. It's just a decals from the GW BA's transfer sheet applied over a hand painted back drop with some brush work text on the bottom finished up with a light wash. I'm really pleased with the result I think it looks awesome. I feel like a fraud every time someone asks how it was done and I have to explain, lol.

I wouldn't have believed that was a transfer, but a quick search shows it to be true. Nether the less it is still an amazing banner, weathered really nicely (and a much better application of transfers than I could ever hope to achieve)!

Very nicely done sir.

Thank you, much appreciated Ironsky. I'd have to admit I had my doubts after some of the feed back left me feeling judged, like I'd done something dirty, lol... I'm over it now though. I just had a bit of a wobble that left me questioning my abilities.

Hey man, use the tools to do the deed. If I have this right based on instagram folks I follow, the BA Decals were designed by Goodwin's daugther who is a designer at GW. Imbued with the spirit of The Godwyn pattern again!
