Hello fellow AVP fans. My box set arrived recently with a few bits from wave two. Few more bits to wait on, but at least I could start painting what I have. It has been around 12 years since I last painted at 28mm model and frankly I was crap at painting 40k minis. However a couple of years ago I got back into model painting having found love for Flames or War and tiny WW2 models. From this I did somehow learn the patience to paint tiny 15mm infantry camo which has come in handy for my marines. As shown in an example pic of my tiny Germans.

Rather then create a standalone blog, I thought why not add my painting progress to the forum as its on these galleries that I took some inspiration for my current paint schemes. Hope you like how this progresses.

So I started painting yesterday (28/01/16) starting with an undercoat of 'Plastic Soldier Company - Infantry Spray British Khaki' for the marines 'Plastic Soldier Company - Tank Warspray British' for the green blooded Predators and natural the aliens had a coat of black primer.

With the marines, I dry brushed on Khaki and then began the detail on the camo trousers, working from images of Colonial Marine costumes. It got late last night so I started testing other colours on one model. Its a shame I didn't have a practice model to work on as I finished last night hating what I had painted. Including going to bed hating it, dreaming of getting today and re'go over what I had done. You will see in the third image what I mean.

So today I had a second pop at it. Naturally painting over paint left unsightly brush marks but at least the model hasnt turned out too bad. Todays work will be in the next post.

Yesterday I added the base colours to the rest of my Marines and then stopped, as I was too tired from work. Not much progress there.

Today, I added more colour to the Marines highlighting the armour and adding minor detail such as belts and straps. To my origional test marine, I added more details on things like the grenades and an added skull and cross bones as a homage to Pvt.Hudson. I also started work on my Smart Gunner adding minor details.

Still need to go back over the trousers and add the rest of the camo, but progress is slow and I get distracted by painting tiny nonsense details. As you can see from my Smart Gunner, I added (tried) USCM in a darker green to the cap and once again as a homage, I added 'BITCH' to the smart gun in homage to Drakes smart gun. It doesn't look amazing, but hey it is small surface to paint on with a large brush, it has the effect I wanted.
