Imperial battleforce

Opened my first Imperial battlefircw this morning. Hoping to get some time this week to start pre-assembly. Leaving forGenCon on Wednesday afternoon, so nothing doing then.
The first sentinel has a base now, though I now see what you miss when you get things off of eBay and don't do some homework first. Guess  need some more reading material and tuteledge as I move forward.

Molly's Painting

Here is Molly's first IG miniature. She was trying to match my color scheme and is more than excited to paint and play. I've never seen anyone so excited and vociferous about being a nerd.

Hopefully over the next few sessions she will have some better brush control and will show a bit better control, but who can argue with her enthusiasm. I am ever proud.

Sentinel Interior

Interior of the Sentinel is nearly done, time for assembly. Here are some pictures to show color scheme and progress. I have no idea what the outside will look like, but am happy to take some suggestions. I am thinking to go with a US WWI scheme to match the IG units' color scheme.  Any idea what a good US WWI tank green is?

I went with the idea that the IG would be industrious given the volume of troops they support and that brought to mind government contracting and the industrial gray.

Comments welcomed.

Continuing on with my Imperials

Work has finally started on my remaining three Imprial troops. One is clearly over-primed, but should end up ok. Also started the interior paint on the sentinel. Photos to come to ight when I get some more paint on them. Hopefully start assembly on the battle force next week.

Making progress

The Mummy figure is moving along, hopefully I will get close to complete tomorrow morning and will post a photo update. Following that it is time to complete the painting on my fist group of Imperials and start assembly on my first Sentinel.

Imperial Army Update

I am nearly completed my first Imperial. It took a while, but I sprinkled in a 10 day vacation and pulled muscle, so not too terribly bad. I need to complete his face, but otherwise think this is done. Time to replicate onto the rest of the army as I build them. Please feel free to give some feedback.
While I was looking through my old paints, and say something for the quality of Games Workshop bottles, this 10 year old paint is still good. I decided to paint up an old GW miniature I had primed white. I didn't do any clean up then apparently as there is flash on the mini still, but I went ahead with painting anyway. This is another practice case.
I'm not sure what model this was from GW, but is some sort of mummy figure.  Too bad they don't make mini's like this anymore. If anyone has old figs like this that aren't painted, I'd like to get them.
