Well not that much done yet - just a quick update on the painting progress of the rest of the praetorians.

Praetorian finished

So finally got the test-piece done. Really happy with the way it turned out in the end - might add a bit more weathering in the future though.

Even closer

Well actually I had this one marked down as finished, weathered and everything - even put in in my lightbox for a photoshoot, when I realized the eyes were still a bit dark. Hmmm, back to the paintingtable you go.

Almost there

Paints are almost laid down now, just need the last bit of work on the red trackguards and I'm thinking about adding some weathering as well. And the eye - what to do? Think they should be green..............

Uhhhh - the possibilities

Luckily I'm not too tempted about the new 40K starter set, don't get me wrong the new miniatures are cool, just way too kornish for my likings - if I was to do a chaos army it would be with a nurgle theme. The brute is really awesome, and looks like it could fit the bill fine as a nurgle brute as well.
The cultist however is another matter - they are really interesting. looks like there are sevral doubles and that would indicate fully cast miniatures I think. But one could wonder if a boxset with posable/multipart minis would be released for all of us that won't but te starter box. Anyway I do really see some cool basis for hypaspists in there, and that combined with Anvil Industry's statement that new human sized bits are comming shortly, well that's going to put my hypaspists on hold.

Praetorian PIP II

Not completely dead - a small update with a small amount of paint. Couldn't really decide how to paint the track unit, but I think I got it nailed down now. Not the best photo I've taken, but I'll blame the phone - does give an idea how it will end up looking. A bit of red plating will be added and some minor details.

Praetorian PIP

Had a bit of playing around with bronze/brass last night - wanted a dark patinated color, and I think it worked out pretty well. Goes fine with the red as well, though I might have to add some damage to that too.
Those metallics will most likely end up being a big part of the colorscheme for the rest of the army as well.

Get out of here......

Actually started painting  - at least a colortest for the red. As allways red's a difficult color to photograph, so it's a bit more graduated IRL than on the screen - at least on my screen. Planning various cog-patterns, checkers and the like as decoration on the shoulderpads.

Updates on the TF Mechanicus codex just keeps rooling in, at a pace where I almost can't keep up with reading all the new stuff and changes - version 9.6 now. Just keeps getting better and cooler and The Omiscion has now arrived.
