So when this guy arrived, the banner was snapped off. A little tip I've found is that the Citadel Drill's bit is actually the perfect size for your bog standard paperclip. There are other hand drills available (such as from Gale Force Nine), but they require a slightly different sized rod (which they usually come with a small supply of). Sadly, the extra rods of this size are far more expensive than a 99p pot of paperclips which will last you the majority of your hobby life! Below is the easy way in which I've attached the banner - by drilling into its pole and fixing a small length (about 1.5cm in total) into the banner and drilled out the hole on the dreadnought. Its now a perfectly safe, removable banner for storage without the use of magnets.

These arrived this week. Two scout squads, one with Telion, seven scout bikes, five Vanguard and a Forge World dreadnought. All painted reasonably well, but I'll be doing things to tidy them up and posting better pics soon. I also need to reattach the banner to the dreadnought and paint the genestealer under his foot into the colour scheme of our local Tyranid player's colour scheme.

Second day in a week I had a bit of time to paint, what is the world coming to?? No decent pictures to offer you yet, but as a taster... Here is a quick snap of the Chapter Master and Librarian after I'd dipped them (Army Painter Strong Tone). Hopefully will get some final pics up tomorrow when I can sort out the decals and scripting on the books.

I had some time to get paint to brush yesterday for a morning and I'm happy with the outcome. Shrike of the Raven Guard is now complete! I'm happy with how its come out and hope to have some more painting progress to share in the coming week or so, as my previous builds of librarian and Corvus armoured chapter master are switched to Raven Guard and painted. Plus... I have a Storm Eagle to fix and paint.

Well... I wasn't expecting this... I managed to pick this up for a decent price, but did not expect the paint quality of it to be anywhere near the actual standard it is! I can honestly say, every single model is at the level you see on the close ups. Lots more pictures below. I think its fair to say, I'm very much back in 40k!!
