So its been well over 10 years since I last picked up a paintbrush to paint miniatures of any sort. After collecting (and hoarding) numerous unpainted Epic mini's I thought it was time to make a start finishing off where I left off. This didn't happen! I couldn't get back into finishing my Imperial Guard off that I started approx. 12 years ago. For some reason I couldn't get the same results, so the newly painted mini's ended up being stripped of paint and shoved into a box for later.

Rather than build one massive army, I've decided to build and paint small core armies of say 1000pts that I can come back to and build on. This will also keep me interested in finishing off the army before moving onto the next one.

So after choosing to start with Chaos (Nurgle), I thought I would try out a few paint schemes. I wanted something dark, yet not too dark as to hide detail and not show up, yet not too bright as to make them seem too clean. So I ended up with the following colour scheme.

Its not perfect by far, there are quite a few changes I could make and hopefully once I've been painting for a few weeks I hope to get my eye (and hand) back into painting mode.....thats the theory anyway....we'll see ::)

So here is the first batch that I thought I would try. Sorry for the poor photography, the photos are a little on the darker side, but you kinda get the gist of whats going on with them.

Thanks for all the great comments guys, much appreciated! Hopefully I'll have more painted by the end of the week :)

I had somehow missed this! Great to see you building armies mate, look forward to following your progress! One day we will get a game!

Oh, and the paintwork is none too sloppy either! ;)

Excellent, looking forward to seeing more! Will you be nurglefying some of your terrain to go with them?

Hi Rex,

I haven't had much time lately to paint much more, but I am hoping that will change over the next few weeks. I have about 8 plans currently of various board sections to make for a modular table (that I probably will never get to use). Two of these sections I am planning on having as Chaos defences/bunkers and also infested buildings etc....so will go down the nurgle route for some of it :) Unfortunately I'm having to slot all this in between work, BSD, 16 month old son, wife, finishing off rebuilding a house and various other projects I'm tied up with. But things will start to appear on here and my other thread bit by bit over the coming weeks/months/year :)

Well, I had a spare hour and a half whilst running some designs through the laser software and cutting so thought I'd do a quick bit of painting.

I know these aren't going to win any painting competitions and are fairly basic but I need to get some minis painted for the battlefield! So meet the first tactical squad and 3 Sabre's of the proposed Carcharodons (Space Sharks) Chapter.
