Nice to see you're so eager, though. It makes my black heart smile.

I love the grot!
the sergeant is just looking at him as if-'wtf is this thing doing?'.

I like the colour scheme as well-also haven't seen it before which raises it in my opinions!

Very nice termies! The purple works great and the grot looks like it is about to crap itself xD

Nice, interesting colour scheme and good paint job. Love the dioramic feel of the grot and sergeant and the use of forge world red scorpion bitz.

Terminators down. Basing to do but i have no idea what to do them on. I love the red scorpion stuff and have got a whole pile of it. Also saves me from having to hand paint the icons. I like the large bases that terms come in as it allows you to do stuff like have a grot on it. I thought i would be a bit of a mismatch but told a little story. And damn the lizards for a bit.

I love the terminators they look even better finished. I just finished three bat swarms myself. and am pleased how they came out. But looking at your termies makes me jelous. So whats your little store on the mismatch

Nice choice of colours on the Termies! Crisp and cleanly painted. Good work!

About the base, how about basing them with some sort of desert stuff? Not just sand, but rocks and bushes and stuff? I like the contrast between the marines and the base as it looks now.

Desert Bases would indeed look cool, as Boo said. The best way to look at the bases is to think about the background and story of your chapter (which looks effing awesome btw). Where do they usually fight? Try to come up with a story that fits the bases, adds a little something. Also bec ause the purple colour is so distinctive you should decide on a base type and colour that fits well in with the colour, maybe a dark stone perhaps?

As i have a cold and don't feel like doing anything productive i have done some more painting. These are my devastators, they are not finished as they need highlighting, tidying and finishing off.

The Chapter fights on a scrub world, mainly as everything i have is desert based. I want to get some long straw grass to put on the bases and am waiting till i want more stuff to order to get it. The guy with the cup needs quite a bit of work as his cabling looks quite poor. thanks

I am very impressed with your devestator squad. The guy with the cup is just so cool. I love how you added dark angels cloaks for a mysterious feel to the army. Least that is how it comes across to me. The straw grass will be great added to them I think. I do it on my Chaos marines and it makes them look good. Best of luck beating the cold, It is never fun to feel like that.

Ah, the awesome 40k starter pack. :D I had two of those badboys at home, 40 boyz, 6 koptas and 10 nobz with two warbosses. They make a great little army. Not to talk about the SM side with a termy squad and a dreadnought! :D

Great progress on the Devs, the desertbases are going to look really good with the minis.
