Hey there! After reviewing my posts and the comments within combined with some deep thought and shared thoughts with the other Tech Priests, I've decided to make another post in this series before progress shots start coming out. This post will be a review of previous articles in this series and the corrections/changes I've made to the plan that's in place so far. So let's get to it!

Here I am, once again to show you what I've been thinking about for models for my next army. While I have purchased some of the models for this army, not all of them have made it to the purchasing stage and most are subject to change depending on what I find and/or what is shown to me. That's where you all come in, any suggestions you provide me with better alternatives will be used in the army if I like them and will get you mention in a future post. The suggestions so far have been very much appreciated, thank you to those participating so far. Anyway, without any further ramblings, let's get to the last post for a while; transportation.

So often we tend to focus on the higher end skill set while we strive ever closer toward a Golden demon style of painting. However I want to introduce you to a term I use often in my circle of buddies. The word "Tournament Painting". While so many people love the hobby side, there is a large group that either cares more about the gaming side, or just isn't skilled at the hobby side to the point they strive for passable, non embarrassing, or more importantly decent soft score. Yes my tournament brothers and hobby handicapped homies, this article is for you!
I am going to show you a fast and super easy method to make simple bases. Perfect if you don't want to mess with the hobby side, but want something that looks solid, or pulls your force together. A process that you can do for a event your staying up late trying to get those three colors done on your army for. Also something you can do in bulk with a solid result. I have used this for smaller forces, quick commissions, and have gotten several compliments on models done this way.

Welcome back to my series on the ideas and creation of a very-post Heresy Emperor's Children army. I'd like to first thank all of you for the suggestions you've given me throughout this series and I'd like to note that I'll probably be making a new post for Fast Attack because of this (still working out the details there). In any case, we've reached the FOC slot: Heavy Support. If you've been following along you'll know that this consists of one unit of Havocs in my list. More after the jump.

Painting beautiful models is something we all wish we could do. Regretfully the only models that most of us will ever paint are those in the Games Workshop line up and not the models that strut down the catwalk. The pictures above are compliments of my Wife's favorite show, America's Next Top Model, which airs once a week. Much like the drama that unfolds each episode each new model that I paint leaves me filled with regret and joy. Over the years my skills as a painter have increased and thus the subject matter, the models, become more and more difficult to work with. The attitudes and egos that come to the surface leave me in a constant state of anxiety. Did I paint this to the best of my ability, are the colours balanced, should I try a new technique are but a few of the questions that plague my feeble mind. In the end each model that I finish weather they are 100% to my satisfaction are a testament to my modelling and painting skills. Today I want to have a look back at one of my first models that I painted.
