Imperial Guard : the 5th Infantry Squad

In the new infantry based edition it's my belief that the infantry based armies will be more competative, so I will return my attention to the poor footslogging blokes of the Imperial Guard. So 5 more Imperial infantry soldiers joined the hostile ranks of the 135th's ''Shadows'' Regiment.

I had some free time this week so I painted some more those days.The result is one more magnetised XV8 crisis suit for my Tau army. Also this week, I painted some pathfinders and I will play some more 40K battles hoping to like the new game.

Salamanders:New Terminator Squad

I am so disapointed at the 6th edition! With only 3 games it's really too soon to have a clear view of the new rules but so far I can't find to like the new game engine. I will give more chances to the game but I'm not that optimistic. In any case, my Salamanders are taking some more Tactical Terminators. I chose the Heavy flamer as a heavy weapon not only to honour my fluff of course, but because I love the model as well! I hope you like them!

Dark Angels : Assault squad

I really think that the Dark Angels is the best chapter to repaint old models. Those models are actually repainted maybe 4 times! First as Ultramarines, then as Ravenguards, then as Blood Angels and finally as Dark Angels. This project is one of my favourites. As you can see the models are with proper insignia (transfer sheets and decals), based and carefully, lovingly painted. I hope you like them!

So how badly was the models painted?
That Badly

Salamanders : Storm Talon

I wanted a model to celebrate the arrival of the new edition, so what better than the later Space Marine flyer the Storm Talon? At first, I was curious if the new model can be taken from my Angels Sanguine Chapter. I imagined that two talons escorting my Storm Raven Gunships could be an awesome sight on the battlefield. Unfortunatly I can't.
    My second choice was, of course, the Salamander Chapter. I was truly reluctant for this as the Tallon has no melta or flamer weaponry but I did it anyway.
    This model is smaller than the pictures imply. Its size has nothing to do with the older Vendettas and Raven models that share the same oval base with the Storm Talon but its strangely cuter than the older flyers. In any case, I was able to paint this model in less than three days and that's saying something. This model took all my attention from the Dark Angels vow and I dedicated all my painting time to it.

Dark Angels : Τactical Squad

That was a very busy weekend for me but I managed to finish my Dark Angels Tactical Squad.The whole concept was to paint as many AoBR marines as possible, that's why the lack of a plasma weaponry. Of course I couldn't resist painting a Veteran Sergeant of the Inner Cycle with the bleached bone robes but I think you all get my point. Only a Chaplain and an Assault Combat Squad remain to complete my vow so please stay tuned.

With those models the sqad is complited
 A detail of the Missile Launcher
 The whole squad ready for war!
