Hi Guys

I have have recommenced my sordid affair with epic over the last 18 months and thought it is about time that I contribute to this forum as I regularly surf its pages.

I thought what better way to contribute than too post pics of my latest project.

I am fairly new to posting pictures and links so hopefully this works.

Cheers

Mic

Hey thanks, i feel a bit like the quiet kid in the corner that has been there for a while but only just decided to speak up.

Yeah my smurfs have generated a bit of interest at my local club and I am hoping that I will intice more gamers to the dark side.

Yeah I tinkered with most formations to give them some more character.
I am more than happy to explain anything should you any questions.

Hi and welcome!

you have executed the painting scheme well. Simple but very effective and the highlights make the minis pop-up nicely. I also like the fact that you have used quite some time for the conversions. I myself like to tweak minis quite a bit also. I wish I will have a sizable force like that painted up someday :)

Way to introduce yourself!

Big fan of all the little conversions! :D
The Terminators are super and also like all the banners!

Solid painting, really like the small conversions and supreme commander stand. Small point, but it might be worth neatening up the base a bit.

Hey Guys

Lead_Space and Mr Gonzo

I am glad you enjoyed the conversions, I really enjoyed doing them. I have another 3000-4000 points converted, magnatised ready for painting including another terminator formation.
Other than Calgar I spent the most time on my termies because how awesome are they. Not just in a gaming sense but how they look and their fluff (if your into it).

Yeah, I know what you mean about the bases. I haven't varnished yet so there has been some wear which is most apparent on the warhounds, you know how your always moving those puppies around. Some of the bases need another coat around the edges as it seems a bit thin. I may try glazing or even washing the base which may inhance it some... What do you reckon?

That was my thinking – hadn't noticed the nocked bases on the hounds so much. A second coat to give a more uniform colour would do it i recon.

Your right, I will do it soon. Over this next week or two I am working on a table as I am keen to get some battle reports posted with a mate who has his bad moons also near completion.
I guess it dosen't matter how good the army's look if their on an ordinary table it will do the army's an injustice.
