I naturally am a very lucky guy however this joy is somewhat tempered as I was only allowed to rummage around to see what was in the box and now it is sitting out of reach tauntingly, waiting for wrapping and placing under the tree next week.
All I have to tide me over the next month are these pictures hurriedly taken.
So now my task is to decide what to do with this amazing gift.
The previous post was a taster of a promising Nightlords Pre-Heresy Army. I want to paint the model with my wash/glazing technique which was used on my Knights of Blood Librarian model earlier to good effect.
While I am doing all my agonizing, tell me what you guys are doing or want to do.

The picture below is what I am aiming for for a final product with the different backpack though. I really like the skull painted on the helmet and that was a definite detail to keep.
So I set about doing a conversion with an Assault on Black Reach marine. The conversion entailed a new head, chaos backpack with the chaos details removed and a partial greenstuff sculpt shoulder pad.
Stay tuned to see the painted model.

Painted all the details and am very happy with the way the tanks turned out.
Let me know what you think.

The Churchill tank was a heavy tank with good armour, better than the Tiger 1 but not quite a s good as the Tiger 2, a reasonable gun (75mm) in the later versions and a good suspension albeit relatively slow.
The PSC kit is easy to build comes with loads of options and has 2 models in the box.
Then covered the models in a brown / black wash.
Drybrushed with Vallejo Russian Uniform and painted in all the details.

I finished painting all the tracks and details and photographed the models with my filed and bocage terrain pieces.
Very happy with the outcome.

Who doesn't love German tanks! This kit from PSC is a good price, easy to assemble and you get two tanks in the box with all the extra bits you may want like a tank commander.
I primed the models with grey then base coated them with Middlestone.
Next was a heavy wash of 60/40 brown/black.
I painted my camouflage in the same tried and tested method as all my other german models. The brown camouflage with a 50/50 mix of Middlestone and Chocolate Brown and a 70/30 Chocolate Brown and Middlestone mix for the center part of the camouflage. The green was a 50/50 mix of Reflective Green and Middlestone as a base then a 70/30 mix of Reflective Green and Middlestone for the center of the camouflage.
I need to drybrush the armour again to bring out the detail then finish of the tracks and other bits.
stay tuned for the finished model.
