Grey Knight Strike Squads WIP (almost done!)

I've been using these two squads of Strike marines in nearly every game of 40k I've played since the 5th edition GK codex was released and they became my primary army. That was almost 4 years ago and I've made such a pitiful amount of progress on this army in that time. Part of the delay is that I made a decision early on to try to paint every model to the highest standard I was capable of, but that's not the reason I still have incomplete paint jobs on loads of my core units. The real reason is gamer ADD and flat out laziness.

Over the last six or so months I've really been trying to wrap projects up an I'm happy to say the end of the journey is near for these guys. I noticed a few incomplete details while taking these quick and dirty pics but I think I'll have these guys done with one more painting night. Once the last few details are tied up I'll take some better pics.


  1. I'd say that you are definitely a perfectionist and the work I see you and Drew do consistently is inspiring to me. You are an award winning painter now and I know you'll make gold this year because you'll keep improving on what you've done.

  2. Yep Ed is right ...this stuff is inspirational; I saw this earlier and went immediately upstairs to start fixing my Bastions!

  3. Shucks guys, you dudes sure know how to flatter a fellow. Just remember, both of you have equal achievements,. Ed you're officially the award winning "sneakiest player", and Vin, your Sanguinary Guard are equally inspiring.

  4. I'm also an 'award winning' pumpkin carver... sure it was 'worst' pumpkin but show some respect to my title please.
