Heresy Era Imperial Fists - Veteran Squad nearly complete

Real Life(tm) took up most of this past week's hobby time, but I did manage to sneak in a couple hours here and there and got the veteran squad up to the 'ready for transfers and weathering' stage as of this morning:


Still have a bit more detailing work here and there, as well as adding the red diagonal striping on the chainswords and perhaps a little red on the heavy bolters as well (they're looking a little unadorned at the moment). On the whole though, I'm pretty happy with how the unit is coming along - now if it wasn't forecast to friggin' SNOW here tomorrow I'd be able to get these guys finished. I'm running out of excuses to not finish up the 20 tac marines, may have to just suck it up and make the final push tomorrow!

Black with yellow looks super good. A whole army of this scheme would kick arse.

Nice! I like the black armor look and the sarg's helmet looks awesome.

Snow ?!? Oh, FFS. That means it'll be here in mid June. Prolly not as snow, but it'll still pee on summer....

Be honest. You did these in five minutes. :)

Love this scheme. My guys finally started arriving, so I can try to replicate your skill by multiplying the time required by 100.

Also google thinks I'm a robot. Maybe I comment too much? Come on google, you should know better!

I can't wait to see the full effect of them all together. Also I aim to eventually reach that level of painting, but you can keep the speed factor of it :)

Greg we all know you are a robot.

The yellow looks great. Keep it up.

@Greg Hess: Hah! They did go pretty quick, they've probably got 3-4 hours in 'em at this point. I'm getting ready to do a series of 'how to' posts, hopefully they'll be useful for ya!

@Rory Priest: Thanks man! I'll set up a family shot soon!

@TheAmbit: Cheers man!
