more Flesh Tearers progress (Space Hulk termies)

Ric is a painting machine! He's made some progress on a few of the Space Hulk terminators I converted for my Flesh Tearers.  The conversions, brass etch and Flesh Tearer paint job should ensure NOBODY has Space Hulk termies like mine! :)  Can't wait to be able to play Space Hulk with a fully painted set!
I am really loving the limited palette being used.  The miniatures definitely pop for me.  Plus who can complain about some OSL effects and some stripe details (check out the slash on the hip armour - neat!).  I'm looking forward to seeing what he does with the Land Raider as well as the terminator librarian.  Liking them so much I have been trying to source another copy of Space Hulk that won't cost me my firstborn son.  If anyone is looking to get rid of one for a reasonable price please get in touch.
For the past couple days I have been assembling the other half of the assault squad he's painted so far as well as 10 death company.  For the death company I've decided to stick with the Flesh Tearers scheme, with white crosses.  They will also all be bare headed.  I'm hoping that in combination with the blingy death company armour they will stand out as I didn't want to follow the standard "all black" death company scheme.  The plan is to get Ric more models to paint sooner rather than later!

Really great! The photo etched on the shoulder pad is a nice addition!

lookin' good! Your right about the Space Hulk thing, I have no idea what made GW say "Oh lets make an awesome game with equally awesome models, yet only produce it for a limited number run so the public can resale them for oodles of cash! GENIUS!"
