Wow... it's been awhile since my last post (almost a month... nice job, Dave)... I'm going to blame it on the fact that I was sick for the better part of two weeks.  Anyways, I've managed to get a ton of painting done.  I've finished two more 6-man bike squads and a dreadnought - though there's nothing particularly different about them from other stuff I've posted on here, so I'll just skip past them for now.

I'd rather take some time to show off some work-in-progress stuff that I'm excited about - not only because it looks cool, but because it is the last squad I have left.

First up is a sample of one of my command squad bikers.



These guys are armed to the teeth, each with a special melee weapon (lightning claws, in this case) a storm shield, and an anti-tank melta gun.  This guy is missing the melta gun, which I think I'll mount on the side of the front wheel hub - it was either that, or model a marine with three arms... and the Emperor's finest don't take too kindly to things with three arms.



Just like the captain in my previous post, the shield is wrist mounted via magnets.  The roman style helm was made by combining some of GW's new Grey Knights helmets with crests from Eldar Dire Avengers.

As I said earlier, this is just one of 5 command squad bikers - I've got quite a bit left to do, but I can see that precious light at the end of the tunnel.
