Vostroyan Firstborn: Second Veteran Squad Completed

Firstly, i just want to jump on the 'outraged' band waggon and declare my anger at ANOTHER price rise from GW. Seriously, i think they're taking the piss a bit now. I know their a business, but theres still a lot of problems following the Banking Crisis, so it  just makes no sense to me. I guess the rich get richer and the poor get poorer (well, we will do if we keep on buying up GW models!)

So i got off pretty lightly after Blogger crashed and caused mayhem the other day! I only lost a few comments, but i hear that others lost much more!

On the subject of lost, i nearly lost this laptop to a mug off coffee this morning, when the handle of the mug decided that it wanted a change of scenery and departed from the afore mentioned mug! Not the sort of thing you want at 0530 before work, take my word for it! Fortunately after a day of drying in the airing cupboard, its up and running again, for the time being at least! Which means that i can stop waffling on and bring you the latest installment of the Vostroyan Repaint; Veteran Squad 2:

In terms of photography, this squad doesn't look as good as the other one, but in the flesh they look identical. Think I'm gonna have to sharpen up my photo skills!

In terms of painting im happy with the way this repaint is going. I've muted the colours down a bit compared to the first paint job, giving them a bit more of a gritty look. They were prahaps a bit to flash and bright before! I'll certainly be painting over the paintjob's in the future rather than stripping the paint off - its much quicker!!

So I'm nearly 50% there with the repaint, and to break up the monotony a bit, I'm going to paint the command squad next. The command squad contains my 4 favorite models in the army: The Vostroyan Snipers! I went to town on the bases for these guys, and I'm really looking forward to painting them! More on that next post!

  1. Looking good! Man I miss my old Vostroyan army. They are just chock full of character. Can't wait to see what's next - keep up the great work!

  2. I'll second your outrage. If I was still buying GW minis I'd be double pissed. But, I've enough to paint to hold me for some great time now. And other project to suck up my time and money.

    The Vostroyans are looking grand! Can't wait to see your snipers.

  3. Seriously looking good! Keep em coming!
