Sorry it's a bit late but I've been away since Christmas so haven't been able to do any blogging for the past week and a bit. Anyway I hope everyone had a good one.
A new addition to the army arrived today... foam trays from KRmulticase! I got a whole load of deep and shallow plug trays and some of the 50 infantry trays. Finally I am able to transport my rough riders in complete safety! Huzzah!
I've also started painting the next unit in my army. The current goal is to finish painting 1000pts so that means command HQ, highlanders and updating the leman russ insignia. So the nest unit to paint is the command HQ led by Colonel Animus Winterborne himself! I've toyed with the idea of different colour uniforms but have decided to keep them the same as the rest of the army. Here is a photo with the khaki uniforms at stage 3 of the roughly 8 stage painting process.
Still a long way to go but once I get stuck into a painting project I like to get it done quick so within the week I should think!
On another note I've realised that I havent finished the battle report from the other post... oh dear... I will try to sort that out soon (they are far more time consuming to write than they look!). Also I had my second battle yesterday, once again versus marines and the praetorians emerged victorius! Particularly heroic were a flamer trooper who fought on after the death of his entire squad and the regimental standard bearer who held held off an entire squad of assault marines before the highland veterans charged in and gave them a good kicking!
