I'm making awesome progress but only a few photos to show. I've finished another 3 Terminators, 2 boltgunners, sorcerer and Chaos Lord with axe and combi melta to the point they're ready for quickshading. Also got another melta/axe Terminator and Terminator Lord with lightning claws about 90% done.

Shots of my almost-finished sorcerer are below. This was my first attempt ever at any kind of freehand. I'm pretty happy with the robe and shoulder but the sword didn't turn out well at all. Really pleased with the helm markings though. Leaving his "hat" boltgun metal looked a bit plain. Overall he turned out really well. I have another guy exactly the same but with burning brand instead of a bolt pistol, so this one was a test more than anything. Hopefully the MkII will be more impressive!

Hi all! Long time since my last update. My Quickshade went hard so they're lacking the finishing touches, but they're pretty much done.

Thanks! I had a lot of fun painting something a bit different, it's kinda disappointing I have so many more "standard" models to go. Still, I'm making good progress and this army is slowly nearing completion (or as close to completion as an army ever gets!).

Holy crap, it's more progress! Seriously, I've done more painting this year than I did in the 6 months before new year. Crazy! I'm hoping I can get ALL my chaos done before the baby is due and my warhammer room becomes baby room (did I mention my wife is pregnant? I'm sure I posted it somewhere...). Anyway here's my progress on the DV chosen. No idea what the hell I'll field them as, but the boltgunners will probably replace my power axe champions in my CSM units as bare-bones ACs, and the rest... well... they look cool right?

They're looking very good!
From one painter to another, can I suggest you try thinning your paints a little and maybe try using a bit more ink washes... They will add depth and greater colour separation.

Keep going, ultimately the best advice I can give is to keep going. Practice doesn't always make perfect, but it goes a long way to getting there!

Thanks for the feedback! I'm having trouble finding a good paint:water ratio for the Boltgun Metal and Dwarf Bronze(yes my paints are that old). By the end of this I should have mastered it though, either that or run out and buy the new improved versions.

Most of these guys are awaiting their final washes to finish them off, so essentially they're still just basecoated and highlighted.

I'm working on my Abaddon counts-as and a handful of other infantry characters and then I'll lash out and buy some more shades and finish them off.

I've also ruined most of my good brushes which doesn't help.
