From the painting desk #4May 30, 2010
I’m happy to report that my Colonial Marine project is actually coming along nicely. Here’s my first full five-man (although there’s one female there too) squad for your viewing and commenting pleasure. I’d already forgotten the old WHFB feeling of how nice it is to have a bunch of minis with a coherent paint scheme. The picture also clearly shows the size difference between Copplestone Castings (the mini on the left) and em4 (all the others). Guess the scanner operator just happens to be a big guy.
I’m also churning out Aliens at a fairly good rate, but couldn’t bother photographing them since they pretty much look like these ones shown previously.
Up next for this project is a second squad of Marines, as well as some Predators. All of this stuff has been sitting in my cupboard for ages, so it’s about time for it to get painted. That’s the great thing about collecting far too many minis to paint. When you return to something you’ve bought years ago, it’s like Christmas every time!
