Gigantor - Brazen Fists - June commitment

Post by Gigantor » Thu Jun 05, 2014 2:34 pm

So I'm pretty new to the ICs podcast and the forums. I just found out that there's a facebook page. My goal is to finish painting a few things to add on to my battle company that I've already finished.

Here is my June commitment, which I need to have done for the end of the month as I'm playing an Apoc game and that dastardly GW says I need 3 dreadnoughts as part of a company now.

Once these 2 models are painted, I have 4.2k pts finished. I figured that I would add up the rest of my unpainted models and that should get me close to 2k. I was wrong. I still have 3.5k pts of unpainted marines. FML

The 2k list (Ultramarines successors)
HQ -
Captain in artificer armour burning blade storm shield - 180
Command squad - apothecary company champion company standard 3x flamers - 160pts

Elites
Dreadnought assault cannon powerfist heavy flamer - 130pts

Dreadnought tl lascan missile launcher - 135pts

Sternguard x10 2xHeavy flamers -250pts

Troops
Scout squad x5 heavy bolter w/ hellfire - 68

Scout squad x5 missile launcher - 70

Scout squad x5 -55

Heavy support
Centurions x5 chest missile x5 gravcannon x4 lascannon x1 omniscope - 470pts

Land raider crusader -250

Land raider redeemer -240

Total - 2008pts

I finally got a couple hours to get some hobby in. I tried out a new technique of using heavily watered down paint and a make up sponge (btw wife, I took a make up sponge) and it did a decent job on the blue.

If I've learnt one thing in my 32 year old life it's ....well I guess it's don't make a zip cord for gi joes on grandmas priceless glass fruit bowl.... But if it was two things then the second would be don't touch wife's make up things...

Good luck :)

June commitment complete. Whoo!

And while I was at it, I based this dread that I painted in 2011

I'm disappointed in the metal that I got on the sarcophagi, but I'm happy that these are painted. I've owned both models for 8 yrs! Plus all 3 dreads can swap arms.

That's some beautiful work you have there. Everything from the clean, blue, base down to the weathering is quality work. Looking forward to July. What's on deck?
