Everything looks really good man, I'm looking forward to see more. as for hazard striping advice (sorry about being super late on this) you just gotta have the patience to do it. I personally hate the task, and there seems to be no easy way around it. I just use a spot color of orange (I use the old Macharius Solar Orange), and build it up to a yellow(Yriel Yellow work for a good base). Really thin layers are the key to making it not look super mottled, but you are gonna have to put a lot of coats on. Then you just gotta hope for the best and use a black and strip it as best as you can, and then go over and fix the stripes with a few somewhat thin coats of yellow. (fixing as in thickening, thinning, or just straightening). I know, it sounds complicated and long but it usually only takes me an hour or two total depending on the initial coat for a squad of guys. Hope that helps.

May completed (It's amazing when you are stuck in a motel for 8 nights - luckily I brought them along).

Have also put in my order for bases from Secret Weapon Miniatures, two days ago. Not sure when they will get here, but that will be quite a job in itself.

June Commitment also here, essentially - 20 cultists. I was going to do them in brown, but have changed my mind and am going for the green that the Mirkwood elves have in The Hobbit (really like it).

Deleted post and resubmitted with better pic.

Hey Loopy, can I add to my monthly commitment? My Secret Weapon Bases arrived and seeing as I have almost completed my cultists, I wanted to add the bases. As you can see, heaps more than is needed, but I ordered extra ones so that I can do them all at the same and have a consistent look to all of them.

So here is a pic of the completed bases and my completed Zone Mortalis force. I'm taking part in a doubles tournament soon and each side brings 1000 points, so that may well be the debut of this force. Should be interesting given Ive not played CSM before...........ever.

Thanks man. Your advice on the yellow really helped as well. Took four coats (and thin masking tape) in the end, but I'm chuffed how they came out.
