2017 painted model commitment #7

Again I have not been idle...

You may remember at end of the last update on my painting commitment there was a large pile of gold models in a box. Well, I have an update - good and bad.

Good: that I have painted nearly 4 squads of models (20) and a Rhino;
Bad: that I have had some problems with the gold spray and so this process has taken a lot longer than I had initially planned.

However I am nearly halfway and so can't grumble too much. At least stuff is getting done!

I'm going to hit you with my sword

Witchseeker Squad for the FLAME

Rhino of mobile cover

I haven't got photos of the second Custodes Squad as I need to do their bases before they are 'finished', and the Sisters of Silence Vigilator Squad still needs finishing off (maybe this week... I've been in a bit of a painting fug brought on by the perceived lack of progress... but I have done their bases already!). 

Outside of those minor speedbumps, all I have left to actually finish this army (unless they release new Talons of the Emperor units) is:
1x Custodes Tribune
1x Custodes Contemptor Dreadnought
1x Custodes Land Raider
10x Custodes with a mix of weaponry (including a Vexilla)
10x Sisters of Silence Prosecutors

Not much at all <cough>

How on target am I?
Weeks of the year complete: 36
Models painted: 44
Vehicles painted: 2


  1. I have a feeling I'm going to hate playing against this army. Oh no, wait! You're the T.O. for Maelstrom X aren't you? Good job, sir! Sterling effort! They turned out fantastic given your base coat problems.

  2. Hey, where did you source the aquilas on the rhino door from?

    1. They are old Forgeworld rhino doors, not currently in production I think...
