Very nice!!!

Do the adlers come in strips? Or do you have to cut them off to align them right?

You have to cut them up and base them individually. Sad

Congratulation Kev, an enormous work which allows with 6mm to make a very interesting mass effect. How long you put to realize this army ?

cheers chaps, on and off about 3 weeks for these. I have to limit my painting time to about 5 hours over the day to preserve my eyes and back nowdays  Grin
I normally turn an equivelant  baccus one around in a week and a half as not so much cutting when basing. Will have a baccus one finished tomorrow so will put pics on over the weekend.

Thanks,

probably because you dont use the 3 foot rule, only paint on the details that you'll see at 3 feet away, and to be honest in 10mm thats not a lot, in 6mm its even less.

That's not true though, i paint on basic colours and shade /highlight / wash. What i don't tolerate is mistakes, so every one gets fixed. That's where most time goes in. (i don't have a steady hand like i used to  Tongue )

If you look at my acw units, you'll see what i mean. Nothing over te top, but still took me days to finish, with about 3-4 hours a day.
