Just in time for today’s game, I got these chaps finished.

Raptors 01

 

Raptors 02 - Aspiring Champion

 

Raptors 03 - Special Weapons

 

Raptors 04

 

I have a further five basecoated but I’m switching to something non-power armoury to give myself a little break.

Chaos Space Marine Raptor

I finished the first model from my Raptor squad this afternoon. 

  
Really like how this has turned out and now that it’s done I’ve started production-lining the next five 🙂

Chaos Space Marine Raptors – WIP 1, Or: My Weird Painting Habit

01/21/2016 2 comments

This evening I started painting my ten man Raptor squad, I unleashed my spraying stick and got the lads under and basecoated. 

 

Once the second coat of Macragge Blue had dried I selected one of the regular models that were armed with a bolt pistol and chainsword and got started. 

  

As you can see I’m making decent progress, but it’s also clear that I’m not attempting to production line these models. 

Why? Because whenever I start a new unit, even a type that I’ve painted before, I always paint one to completion before bulk painting  the rest. 

I’ve no idea why I do this, but it’s proving to be a hard habit to break!

Ok, so I got a bit distracted but after undercoating my Dark Angel Command Squad I realised that I was getting really tired painting green and cream. 

Then I remembered that I have a game against Trenchmate Tim fast approaching. Hence, this:

  
I’ve had these boxes taking up space in my Cupboard of Shame for far too long. It’s time my Heralds of Desolation get some reinforcements!

Well, eventually. This evening I made a start on my Chaos Space Marine Raptors.

As you can see, progress has been slight as my wife and I are preparing to move house and hobby time is very limited but hopefully I’ll have some decent results to show soon.

Every morning should start like this!

This morning, I arrived at my desk to be greeted by this.

While I only needed paints and some new brushes, building the Dark Angel Assault Squad at the weekend convinced me that my Heralds needed a proportionate response. In any case, this lot should keep me out of trouble for a while 🙂
