I spent a fair amount of time on the face and main uniform, and I like the result. Once this models based up it may, to be honest, never see the light of day again as it is a rare occasion indeed which results in my 40k stuff coming out of the cupboard.
Tomorrow, or this evening I'm going to crack on with some Vikings. At some point I'm also going to paint up a 10 man commando squad I picked up from Artizan Designs (British Commandos, naturally)

Now I know very little about the Vikings and there background, but I liked the models and thought they would make a nice change of pace painting wise. The above pillager is the first Viking model I have painted and I'm pleased with the results, I think I will quite enjoy raising a small raiding party!
Oh I should add I am yet to paint and attach this chaps shield so for the moment he looks like he's grasping thin air!

I have however always fancied a Dark Angles space marine army, one of the first models I ever painted was a Dark Angels standard bearer many many years ago. So I had a dig around in the cupboard and found a space marine scout I had built and never painted. I have no idea where the rest of the set are, or when I bought the model but hey I only needed one for a test model any way.
I really enjoyed painting up this model and think I might have a go at creating a little Dark Angels force, probably a slow burning project but something to do none the less.

I believe the chopper is a Russian Hip and I would like a 1:48 version to paint up in the very vivid white UN colour scheme. Try as I might though I cannot find a model manufactuer who makes a model of the Hip in 1:48.
