Avenging Sons Chaplain DONE

Good news is that I've finished rebasing and touching up this Chaplain in Terminator Armor for my budding Avenging Sons project. He's been rebased and had his chapter icon changed from White Consuls to this:

Bad news is that I'm burnt out (for the time being, of course) on painting Sons of Horus. That project is going to wait until we get a few more people (including myself) sparked up again about Heresy Era goodness.

So, in the meantime I'll be working on these guys, as well as painting up a test model for my upcoming Valhallan Ice Warriors project. For that, I'm going to give a shot at using Army Painter paints for the entire project. Bo at Army Painter was nice enough to hook me up with some sample paints, and I plan to put them through the paces and see what they're all about. I've got them all laid out in my hobby rack, and I must say they are begging for a project! More on that later...

Avenging Sons Scout Squad Done

Foolishly, I've entered myself into not one but TWO army painting challenges. However, I'm looking at this as a positive, since I'll get two done (assuming I don't blow it), and it keeps things fresh without grinding on one paint job too much. I had a lot of fun painting these guys- some airbrush work for the fatigues and armor, along with some brush work over Hobby Night last night. I'm really loving the Vallejo Liquid Metal range of metallic colors. If you haven't tried them I highly recommend you do!
