Indecision, indecision...

I am very indecisive, as the title of the post suggests. Basically, it takes me repainting my army two, maybe three times before I settle on a scheme and my Valhallans are no different. Originally they were white coats with khaki pants. Blegh. Then they were Khaki coats with green pants/armor. Meh. Now they are Grey coats with Blue pants/armor. Niiiiccceeee. I like how it looks a lot and they are fun to paint (and not very time consuming...for me :p)

First, the repaint of the mortar crew....

Now my newly painted CCS. I did some more base experimenting to...well...little success. Some of them basically disentegrated which is disappointing to say the least. I'm still happy with the way they look, but need to perfect my methods still (I used baking powder instead of soda which, reading on the interwebs, is probably my problem. Live and learn!)

And, a little teaser I guess, my commissar who is getting a loving paintjob (possibly in time for July...)

Really nice work mate, I know what you mean about indecisions! I like this paint scheme though, it fits very nicely with their bases as well as fitting perfectly with the force. Great stuff

Wow! Did you do all that sculpting work on their coats. Really impressive. I like the color scheme too. Good choice. I know exactly what you mean. I had my Tau army unpainted for almost a year before I could decide on the color scheme. that was over 6 years ago and even now I'm re-doing it!!!

hey buddy, on previous posts it had been difficult to guage what your level of painting is, but this post, especialy the officer and the commissar, have shown off your skills. really good work on them!

How do you make that "freeze effect" in the chainsword?

Oh, that's not a freeze effect, that's the prime! I primed it black and sprayed it overhead with white in order to help me with highlight placements.
