I played a game over the weekend during which my Stormraven performed admirably so I decided it deserved to get its paint job finished up. I probably have few more evenings of work by its getting real close.

I've got the first 3 of my new space marines pretty much done. I have another 17 built so I need to keep painting but I've got my method down to the point where I can pretty much paint one whole guy a night (that's really fast for me).
I have a contemptor dreadnought, a drop pod, and a landraider behind these guys so I'm gonna have to keep my momentum up. I think I'll be shooting to have all of these infantry plus the afore mentioned vehicles painted by the new year.

Here are a few in-progress shots of the Tau Cadre Fireblade I plan to have him leading my upcoming Tau allied force. In terms of rules he's probably not as good as an Ethereal, but I've always loved the Firewarrior models and I think it'll be cool to have my small force led by the Tau master sergeant.

While I pretty much always try to trade for models on sprue, sometimes you see a great deal for an assembled model. Unfortunately I often bite.. Then I start to cry upon receiving the model as I notice poor fits, random mold lines or just unfiled clipping scars. Superglue is your friend as it does snap apart allowing you to go back and remove mold lines, random tags sticking out or make the model sit tight. The Hammerhead below is an example of one undergoing surgery. I have literally had to rip the entire model apart and start over.
The moral of the story: Caveat Emptor or Buyer Beware. Ask questions about model construction, ask to see lots of pictures. You can get great deals but understand the work involved.
Lastly a pic of where the models are now... Still some cleaning to do and need to magnetize the turrets, but I'm ready to start on the sniper drones and pathfinders next.
