A quick break from my Army of the Imperium project to finish another unit from Dark Vengeance. Close ups after the jump.
I’ve been putting this squad off for ages. The detail of these models is astounding, it’s so cool to get such amazing sculpts in a starter set but boy are they hard to paint! So after I finished the first ten cultists it really put me off painting anymore. However I am determined to finish Dark Vengeance so I manned up and tackled this squad. Thing is, as soon as I got into it I really started to enjoy painting these! I knocked this batch paint out in around a week. Amazing.
Apart from the unit champions, every cultist has a duplicate in the Dark Vengeance boxset. So I decided I’d do some weapon swaps and flip the paint schemes around so they look a little different.
I have another 15 of these cultist models from the Execution Force boxed game to paint still. I’m feeling a bit better about it now I enjoyed these so much.
So what’s everyone else working on at the moment?
I don't plan on buying it. I have too many 40k projects.
Yeah I am the same Garfy, however the well laid plan lasted about 5 mins after entering my local GW store.
So I am trying to complete my Kastalan Robots before starting on them
You can do it!

I myself am just starting to do production painting for the first time in ~25 years of painting. Gotta speed things up before I run out of time!
My advice is start off with a small batch paint of 3 models. When you're comfortable, up it to 5 models at a time. you'll soon build up your patience and stamina levels for painting 10+ models at a time.

Wow I really like this alternative painting scheme! Any plans to buy an Age of Sigmar box set? ��
