I managed to get some paint on these this week, but I have to say, I'm not as impressed as I was at first... The sculpts are comedic, but not consistent. Some have more detail while others seem to have feet that are not carefully done. Also, a big thing is the actual size of the models - they vary by about 4-5mm in some cases from largest to smallest, which is a big amount in a 28mm game and is especially important on models designed to be shorter in that scale.

I'll admit the Grey Knights in Power Armour were already base painted, but the rest has been done in the last 24-48 hours. Overall, I'm fairly happy with how they've come out even though the Land Raider is only base painted. It will also stay that way, as the army is finding its way onto eBay starting tonight (you can find it here!) as I'm getting out of 40k and Battlefleet Gothic (Space Marine fleet can be found on eBay here!). Blood Bowl is all I'm keeping and as you can see from my previous post with the Scotlings, its looking like it'll be a lot more fun than Grim-dark.
A load more pics below of the Grey Knights can be found below.

I'm delighted to have finally got my hands on a set of the Impact Miniatures Scotings. I've long been an admirer of them and now they're out in a very well priced plastic set rather than their original metals the decision was made for me. So, how do they look? Pretty damned good, to be honest! The detail level is excellent, as can be seen in the pictures immediately below.
There are no duplicates in the 15 set apart from the caber teams, so for a little variety I left the guy off the top of one to make them both distinctive. He was then put to use as can be seen below as an outfield player on top of a ball. I'll hopefully be able to get some paint on these in the next two weeks, and maybe even get some games in.

The lower of the two is the conversion as suggested in the Battlefleet Gothic Space Marine pdf as the Seditio Opprimere - a Venerable Battle Barge. I'm happy with how it looks, and thanks to the new direction for the fleet, I'm happy with how the colour scheme is going to come out for the Grey Knights fleet as below.
