12-12-2006, 09:19 AM
I have posted my first pics of my Chapter: The fists of catachan. These are some of my eary models and hence the painting isnt amazing, i am currently doing some more stuff and will post it when i get round to photographing it.

Ive also almost finished the codex which i will post at some point.

Please give feedback

Its looking pretty good, cant wait to see a full squad done up in the green. It should look really effective when you\'ve finished, and it will stand out from the crowd as well!

Thanks, im happy with the techmarine cos the shading on his armour looks ok. I have got 15 marines painted but they were the first things i ever painted so look pretty bad. They are just one shad e of green with one shade of yellow. the current batch of 13 marines look really good, i use 3-4 shades of green on the armour and it is so much better. I just finsihed all the legs and bodies last night so still a week or two to go yet.

Finished the second company captain yesterday and he is so much better painted than that one although i do like the individuality of my commander with jumppack.

Very nice work the entire catachan thing really seems to be working out great. As drackonis said can\'t wait to see a full (or multiple) squad finished. How big is this force going to be??

Expect a full squad of 10 bolter-wielding madmen in about 10 weeks. At the moment i have:
-10 man tac squad
-5 man tac squad
-5 man scouts
-partially complete command squad (undergoing a major revamp)
-5 normal terms (green armour)
-5 assault terms (shadow warriors)
-6 assault marines
-chaplain w jumppack
-5 man devestators

I havent taken pictures of quite alot because they were the first things i painted and im not that happy with them now my painting has improved. The scouts are quite good and the assaults are ok but the tac squads lack rteal depth.

I plan to keep increasing the army indefinately. Would love to have the entire third company and members of the 1st and scout companies. With supporting vehicles and characters.

I think you will like the tac squad im doing when they are finshed. The devestators are my best marines to date because they are the first squad in which i used multiple shades of green for armour. However i didnt manage to get photos of em cos they are only just finished. I will try and post them cos it should give a much better idea of what the army looks like.

How about a picture of all of your army together? Possibly arranged with some jungle terrain if you\'ve got some...?

Ok, easier said than done.
I get my mums fella to take the photos cos he is a professional photographer. I tried and they were just so blurry. I only gave him the models i wasnt using in my weekend battles to photo.

I will try and get that done sometime but will mean no battles for maybe a week!!! Noooooo...

I have tham arranged at home like that and they look quite cool. I suppose if i did that you wouldnt notice tha painting on someof the marines. Its not terrible but its just single colours with no shading or highlighting.

That would be froody, but dont go and miss out on battles for a week for the sake of a few pictures! Unless, of course, you really want to.

And from a distance the single colour paint job shouldnt be very visible.

Especially when i have DA and orks to kick into next month. lol.

Ill give it a try but cant promise. Got so much stuff in the pipeline though and im repainting so much of my stuff that its never gonna get finished. Currently also doing a converted Term librarian using the plastic term bodies and also got a rhino yest. I have the fist rhino sprues from forgeworld so im gonna make it my command rhino.
