First Squad, we’re going in!

line-up

Have Lightning Claws, will travel. And then kill things when we get there.

Alright! The first unit is officially finished!

Well, except for the protective coat.

But you’d never know that if I didn’t just tell you, right?

Man, I really love painting Terminators! So much open space to work with! And guys armed with Lightning Claws?

Hell, that hardly takes any effort at all!

Altogether, I think we’re off to a fine start here.

I guess this means I have to start on the second unit, though. (This whole blog idea will be pretty short-lived if I don’t)

Next on the painting block will be…

 

Tactical Marines!

Sure, we’re basic troops, but Goddamn we kick ass!

I was kind of torn here, to be honest, because normally I prime white, not black, and I was thinking about stripping and re-priming these suckers.

The main problem with that is my paint-stripper of choice, Goof-Off, will eat the plastic like it was nothing, and as those arms and bolt-guns are plastic…bad idea.

The other option was to just spray white primer over the black, but that covers up detail, so I’m gonna bite the bullet and paint over black.

We’ll see how that goes.

Next time will be a primer on primer!
