The title says it all; this is the first commission work I've taken on that involved painting a complete army. It's fair to say it became somewhat laborious; the scheme I chose was designed for a tabletop level of quality, but when the second owner wanted a higher level, it actually worked against me.
Still, no regrets; I learned more about speed painting and pitfalls and pricing and time management and whew! loads of other stuff that it was well worth it.
Here is the LINK for the Bell of Lost Souls Article. Here is the LINK for the first batch of completed models (remember to hit 'more' for the actual pictures).
As always with pictures seen in MACRO level detail, there are fussy changes I'd like to make. I've had to learn to push that voice down.
(That voice wasn't me, but I'm glad she's gone, too.)
The weapons are each painted with their own color to make it easy to spot on the battlefield. The swords are red, the halberds blue, the hammers dull green, and the dual swords yellow. As a tone, the yellow is highest, so pops in these pictures more than I want. That said, these pictures represent all of the yellow in the army! On the whole, it's a minority color.
It's important to view the army as a whole. As a whole, I'm happy with them, but more importantly the owner is happy with them.
I will say, if they were mine I'd drill out the gun barrels and add static grass to the bases, but there you go. The only thing that isn't finished...
...is the banner. I'm trying something a bit different here, but it has to build up bit by bit. I'll post that separately.
Hugs and gropings and stuff?

Here's a picture of the old Space Marine Painting Guide, which I acquired at some point in the early 90's. It is, without doubt, th...
Here are the rest of the pics from my album that I used for my Bell article today. They speak for themselves - very cool.
That's what I get for trying to upload pictures from a new device. I uploaded a fat lot of nothing. That said, I'm sure there are ...
