Jawaballs Painting Marathon!



To prepare for BoLScon, I had to give my army some very much needed attention. First order of business was to build and paint a new Rhino, then I had to build and paint an attack bike, then I had to build and paint a Land Speeder because my second one is actually a Black Templar one that I have been using. THEN I had to convert and paint 6 Veteran models to fill out my assault squads. I decided to replace most of my old marines, who have been in my army since I started it, 2 years ago. IT was time for an upgrade. I went through the 15 assault marines I am currently using, and weeded out the must goes and must stays, then picked from the last few, decided which would be good entough, and which I needed to replace. I had originally had 10 to replace, but narrowed that number down to 6.(I only had a few days to do all of this painting!)

So, I managed to get the Rhino and bike completed over the weekend. Yesterday, I took on and finished the Land Speeder... but man my fingers are getting sore! To top it all off, my little studio has an industrial strength AC unit that blows directly onto my back... it feels like my muscles are being frozen into a hunched over shap... But I press on! In the process of all this painting, I have been taking advantage of the opportunity to produce nice content for the blog and youtube. :)

Where am I now? I need only to complete the 6 veterans, which are about half done. I hope to have them done Wednesday... Then I plan on touching up my WHFB Blood Knight squad to enter into the fantasy squad competition... and finally I want to rebase all of my remaining models on Jawabases to lower their profile from the scenic bases they are currently on... RUNNING OUT OF TIME!

Wow... how much do you think it would cost u to put together a custom command squad that is personalised like urs?

How did you get all of your bits for your comand squad?

This is just a normal assault squad! I could throw together a command squad though.. as for prices... IT would take about 10 hours to do the job... so no less then 250 bucks.

Where did you get the helm for your assault squad sergeant? That's pretty cool looking...

That is a limited edition space mareine from a box set a couple years ago. His left arm is supposed to be a bolter with a round clip, I switched it out for a pistol.
