Death Korps Command Squad

Another one of the list!
I've finished my Death Korps of Krieg Command Squad. At least one. This means I've only to paint another infantry squad and the Command HQ Squad to get an allied detachment
I loved painting these guys. It's not real batch painting because everyone is different. You can do many basecolors at once but then dive into details.
I'm not so happy that ForgeWorld seems to reduce the variety of the Kriegsmen more and more. I feel a little forced to buy a lot of them before they might be gone. And that with a brown box full of unassembled ones standing around.
But on to some picturespam!

A look at the backlog

Labour day in germany!
There's no better day to talk about work than today. So let't talk about my backlog.
Well the better term would be "Piles of Shame". A while ago my favorite indpendent GW-Dealer sold out with nice discounts on all boxes. I didn't hesitate and went a little overboard with stocking up my To-Do-List. Now some (or some more) projects are stacking up behind me and I guess I've enough stuff to keep me busy for a while.

Let's see what's haunting me...

8th Edition thoughts and grudge

The world of Warhammer 40 000 is going nuts since the weekend. New Edition was announced and everything will be different.
I'm not convinced yet, which is not the fault of the new rules we don't know yet but mostly because of GW's bad communication skills.

Ryza Secutraii Hoplites

I finished my Secutarii Hoplites.
So finally I've a guard for my knights. Actually it's a hired guard becaus Knights aren't titans and I won't buy (and paint) a Titan of any size. Although I'm a little attracted by the Warhound Titan but I can hear Dirk's voice in my head that I need two of them. Because of fluff...
So: No!
Here we go with my Hoplites

It was suprisingly hard to take a decent picture of the whole group.
And for the first time I experimented with the coats. So the ten man squad has three different coats in it. I hope no one notices.
