I realised that while I had finished this a while back, the previous set of photographs of the completed model didn't (in my opinion) do it justice. So while awaiting something drying, I've taken some new photographs. Hopefully they're a bit better and show off the finished model.

The last week has been more hectic than I would have liked. Unfortunately as a result the time available for painting random things yellow or green has been severely curtailed. It has taken considerably longer for me to finish my first Predator Executioner than I hoped (or expected).
However it is now pretty much complete.

So here's a short tutorial on how I do this.

|Another two Astartes completed|
During the odd moments I managed to drag myself away from Dead Space 3 I managed to complete a few more Breacher Astartes. I must admit, I'm getting bored with painting shields (and I'm rethinking whether I'll include another squad) but overall, I'm pleased with these two.

Given the cost per miniature of Forgeworld is considerably higher than GW's plastic range, I resolved to find a purpose for these 'not-quite-pristine' miniatures.
I've always wanted a Pre-Heresy Death Guard army, all the way back to when I read the original 6 line fluff in Space Marine around the seizure of the frigate Eisenstein (the was about may 1990.......). However previous attempts have never really met my expectations (and certainly won't be posted here).
|Finished... at last|
So I gritted my teeth and got on with it.

|Bet it doesn't do many miles to the gallon|
I'll be honest, I was pretty intimidated by the prospect of so much yellow paint.

As I've previously posted about, I'm trying to work my way through the vast backlog of Forgeworld and GW miniatures that I've managed to create. During the week I finished my first Death Korps of Krieg HQ Squad using a quick wash method I'm trying to use.
|I'm not sure I'd want to carry that in a high wind....|

My brief detour into anything-but-yellow has ended... probably. With the extra painting hours a weekend brings, I've managed to finish a number of additional miniatures which have been staring at me sullenly from the edge of my desk, incluing two more of the Mark III Breacher Squad.
|More grubby yellow models ahoy|

Back before Christmas I foolishly purchased a number of Diemos Rhinos to complement my planned Imperial Fists legion. For a while they just sat in the part opened box while I worked up the courage to tackle the large expanses of yellow necessary.
