Back to the hobby. With time a bit limited, I've been doing base color painting. All of the marines for my ETL challenge have the base terracotta color. I'll do the dark green and black on them next, then I'll batch paint them to get to the last stage before detailing, then detail squad by squad.
I still have to build 1 more Assault Marine and a bunch of hand weapons for the same bunch. So, the push will likely be to finish the tactical squads first. Once the ETL V challenge group is done, I have 2 character models, then I'll have to decide how much more I'll expand the Apostles of Quetza force.
I had originally envisioned the Crixus Relief Force to be a mottled group of small units from various Marine chapters as well as the "collection" of Chapter remnants put together by an Inquisitor. So, time will tell. I really AM itching to build some Orky stuff too.
