So the spring clean challenge is finishing and I have not painted all the epic models. In fact I have bought more and hope to get more. I have really enjoyed painting all these models, some that I  have been scared to put paint on since buying them as a small lad, so I will be continuing.

I would like to thank everybody who has looked and voted on my project. I have revelled  in all the projects that have been entered in the challenge (as well all the others that are not) and they have encourage me while doing mine own. Good luck to everyone and congratulations to the winners.

Everything that is done for the challenge

TitansTitans

Some titans to prime and hopefully get finished before Sunday. With spring clean challenge coming to an end and still having most of the imperial forces to paint I have been distracted by eBay and saw something I always wanted as a kid.

So I have bought the Titan legion box. The curse of the spring clean always leading to more models. It is all there, but there is a bit of water damage.

So the project will be continuing as I work through this stuff. Only have the Hive war box set to get now for a complete set (have printed of the rules just the cards and the box). Will be trying to flatten some of the building as there is some warping. So any tips would be great?
