LOL! Agreed!

And needs a Chaos Marine on the other side with a remote control for battling tanks!

oooooo. I like the command vehicle. I want a real one. :-)

Thanks for the advice on Samaels jetbike. I did try a light grey wash but it didn't give me the desired result.

ebay rescue means buying old models that have been caked in paint / made incorrectly / left in a box or shelf for years unloved and then refurbishing and painting them up ready to battle again.
I've rescued them from unwanted homes.
The missile launcher for example: I had to strip off at least two different colour schemes , cut and rebuild his right arm to actually hold the big gun properly, remove the silly extra bolt pistol from the left arm and then repaint to match my army.

seems like a lot of work, but cheaper I would imagine ;)

wouldn't like to think I was doing a whole army like that, its bad enough with new greys ;)

here's my latest project, done ready for the coming battle report:

checkout the youtube video if u haven't already, on how to paint these guys up really quickly and easily. ;)

my next project is the new model to my Daemon army; Be'lakor Daemon Prince. He's also going in the Battle Report to see if he's as OP as many think. I'm just gonna use the same painting method though on him also with a few more details. Not sure yet how to paint his wings... so let's see what we can come up with.

First of all. AW, awesome job on the marines. Good job on the rescue and better job on the painting. Really like them!
Nice job on the Hounds KInG. I couldn't paint that many that fast to that quality. Good Job mate on them and the videos.

But I do have something I'd like to say. Speaking from experience as someone else who has also done a fare amount of ebay rescue work. Not everyone can afford to spend £££ regularly on models. That said, its not always about getting the models for less cost. It can also be about restoring some old classic models that may have been out of production for years and years. The four marines AW has posted here can't be bought at GW anymore. And as soon as I saw them, they instantly remind me of when I first started with GW and 40k. I for one can't place a price on that.
