The other project I kick started this week was assembling a small assault squad. They will join my other assault squads. I found out the hard way that a 5 men assault squad is just a point sink and total waste of space. 5 men will not do enough damage and get whiped out too easily. 10 men squads do much better. I constructed them and they are ready for their basecoat. I always leave the jump packs and shoulder pads off at this stage because it's much easier to paint this way, I just have to make sure to keep all the parts together. I'll start pinning them and basing them so I can undercoat them and I'll take some pics of that so you can see how I go about that. I really like the method I have created over time by trial and error.mostly ,...error.
Then there's also the Orks and I didn't really do much with them. I picked out some parts and painted them for a bit while I was waiting for paint to dry on other models. Thought I'd put them in the pic too because I did do some work on them,just not that much.
