Technically it's not 100% done, as I want to add a couple of artillery crew in the back. One of them has a rang finder and the other will be lugging a shell. The sticking point is getting a good shell for the guy to hold- the only Basilisk shell I see on the Forge World site is not sold separately. It's only with the Earthshaker Emplacement, which costs a pretty penny. Any suggestions for an alternate manufacturer or idea?
In the meantime, here's a few more pics. I've also gotten two vox operators, a Watchmaster, and a lasgun trooper done since the weekend. I've only got the LR Punisher, two Chimeras, the Command HQ, and a couple more troopers left to go for 1500. Almost there!!

Had my very first game of sixth edition 40k with Khairul's Angels Sanguine. Had a blast, especially since his army needs to get close to work. That means I actually get to shoot with all those wraithcannons! Many thanks for the game bro- 6th edition is cool :)

Over the weekend I participated in Legio Malaysia's first 24 hour "Iron Painter" competition. From 10 AM Saturday to 10 AM Sunday, we had to paint a game legal force of at least 30 models in that time. Models started assembled and primed, but that's all. I managed to complete a Guard Armored Recce force from the Flames of War "Hell's Highway" book, display base and all, in about 16 hours.
I'm really happy with how it turned out. I've done a few of these Iron Painters, and I can safely say this is the nicest looking army I've ever done for one. I even got some fantastic invasion stripes on the underside of my Typhoon, fully painted crews in the M10's, and weathering on everything.
So, now it's time to get back to some 28mm fun- either finishing my Death Korps army, continuing my Avenging Sons, or getting started with Iron Warriors. Any suggestions...?
