Just a brief aside from all the captivating theory posts, I thought I'd share what's on my workbench. I've been working on a vanilla marines list (to be posted soon!) and I've had to paint. My goal is to paint my vanillas and BT's to have the same color scheme as my Grey Knights so they can all use the same Dreads/Vehicles etc. The plus side is the scheme is very easy for me to paint, and at least from a few feet away looks like a good paint job. So here is a shot from my current workbench, 10 TH/SS termies and a few random tactical marines that I need to get done to fill out my squads.
About 90% done, and then will need to be based. But I predict I'll be done by the end of this weekend.
