Got them all based, flocked (I use a combo of railroad ballast, fine sand, and chipped cork), and base coated.

Had to use a lot of Liquid [but actually nearly dried out because GW pots are terrible] Green Stuff to fill in the gaps.

Why GW refuses to make plastic Tallarn but does put time into projects like the Taurox is beyond me.

Now I just need to sit down and hash out a list around these guys (and the ones still in the box!)

So I finally sat down and made my list. It takes the army away from the character I'd originally been aiming for, but it will accomplish my primary goal of getting a ton of minis painted.

Basically I've used the other 1000 points of the challenge list to compile a very robust Imperial Guard platoon, a small team of ratlings, a Commissar Lord and a couple strap hangers.

As before the point of my list is WYSIWYG -- the build out is entirely dedicated to that purpose.

HQ

Commissar Lord w/ Power FIst @ 90pts

Priest @ 25pts

Engineseer @ 40pts
Servitor w/ plasma cannon @ 25
Servitor @ 10pts

ELITES

5x Ratlings @ 50pts


TROOPS

Platoon Command Squad w/ vox and mortar team @ 45pts

Infantry Squad w/ plasma pistol, heavy bolter, meltagun, and vox @ 90pts
Infantry Squad w/ plasma pistol, heavy bolter, meltagun, and vox @ 90pts
Infantry Squad w/ plasma pistol, heavy bolter, meltagun, and vox @ 90pts
Infantry Squad w/ plasma pistol, heavy bolter, meltagun, and vox @ 90pts
Infantry Squad w/ plasma pistol, heavy bolter, meltagun, and vox @ 90pts

Heavy Weapons Squad w/ 2x lascannon and 1x missile launcher @ 100pts

Heavy Weapons Squad w/ 3x missile launcher @ 90pts

Heavy Weapons Squad w/ 3x autocannon @ 75pts


and that should round out to 1000pts

And here we go...first pass with Boltgun Metal and Vallejo's English Uniform (70.921) for the flesh tone.

Making progress... though painting 55 miniatures at a clip isn't all it's cracked up to be. Still, I'm confident that once they've had a good wash and some highlights, they'll really look good.

MAY PROJECT COMPLETE -- Imperial Guard Platoon

Slight adjustment to my list ... as you can see below, I ended up painting 54 guardsmen, not 55. So I'll clean up that missing guy from the command squad when i do the next batch of HW teams, but since I painted up a guy with a grenade launcher, it's an easy point for point swap, if one that means I just need a regular lasgun-toting guardsman to add in.

Either way, I'm calling this project done!

Anyway, the 'new' list:

HQ

Commissar Lord w/ Power FIst @ 90pts

Priest @ 25pts

Engineseer @ 40pts
Servitor w/ plasma cannon @ 25
Servitor @ 10pts

ELITES

5x Ratlings @ 50pts


TROOPS

Platoon Command Squad w/ vox, Boltgun, and grenade launcher @ 45pts

Infantry Squad w/ plasma pistol, heavy bolter, meltagun, and vox @ 90pts
Infantry Squad w/ plasma pistol, heavy bolter, meltagun, and vox @ 90pts
Infantry Squad w/ plasma pistol, heavy bolter, meltagun, and vox @ 90pts
Infantry Squad w/ plasma pistol, heavy bolter, meltagun, and vox @ 90pts
Infantry Squad w/ plasma pistol, heavy bolter, meltagun, and vox @ 90pts

Heavy Weapons Squad w/ 2x lascannon and 1x missile launcher @ 100pts

Heavy Weapons Squad w/ 3x missile launcher @ 90pts

Heavy Weapons Squad w/ 3x autocannon @ 75pts

All of which adds up to 1001 pts (but who's counting?)

Some additional shots. They're not as clean as I'd like, but as the guys on JADED GAMERCAST say: "The best color is 'done'."

Of all the models, the Platoon commander model with the boltgun is the only one I don't like. Not sure if it's the pose, or the glasses, or my giving him a green headband ... but he looks soft compared to all the other guys in the platoon.

Must be the headband.

Your work is very impressive and considering how quickly you completed the task it is all the more so. Well done on creating that top notch platoon.

Cheers,
