As you can tell, the majority of the army is guns and tanks at the moment. This is because, having bought most of my army in one go, I've been tempted into painting the shiny things first, and reluctant to paint the ordinary infantrymen. It is a bit of a slog, but I've got a regime whereby I paint one infantryman every day before I start on the WWII stuff, so that in a month or so I should have finished the majority of the squads. One's on the table now, and should be finished late next week, as it happens.
It's good every so often to sit back and do a post like this, to take stock of what you've done so far. Especially with rank after rank of Guardsmen, it can become a bit tedious sometimes so seeing them all lined up like this (even with only two squads finished) is a great reminder of why you're spending so much time and effort on them. Anyway, just got to take them into battle now ... and watch the lovingly-crafted 6+ armour save Guardsmen get gut down in fives by bolter fire. *Sigh*
