I've decided to extend my "troops only" painting gig through the rest of the year. Partly because I have lots of troops that need painting and partly because one of my jobs involves retail and the holidays are just suck-tastic if you work retail, so my hobby time may be sporadic, which is good for these kinds of painting projects as opposed to the bigger sculpting, high end painting things.
SO... these folks will be my first victims. A squad of 10 Chaos Space marines and 20 cultists/penal troops. These guys get used in just about every game I play, so its only fitting they get painted first. 6 of the cultists are done and the CSM champion is going to get abit of a repaint. There will be some more "before" pictures, but here's a group shot.
