Pre heresy Imperial Fist Legion Breacher Siege Squad uncompleted

I know it's cliche but  the saying goes 'if you fail to plan then you plan to fail'. And that's what I did with this squad. Underestimated the time it would take to make my own boarding shield and reposition the hand holding the shield. This was further compounded in me not being able to make full use of the long weekend just last week. Excuses, excuses I know. Resulting in yours truly will be failing to present this squad at this week's second Legio throwdown.
And since this squad won't make it on time and the mood to paint them up has withered....into the box of doom they go. Hopefully I'll find the motivation to paint them up someday but it's highly unlikely. I'll have moved on to newer projects by then :). Painter's fickleness and all.

My best to all the other throwdown participants and look forward to seeing their work this hobby night. All the best everyone!!


  1. I'm having similar problems as well, being a committed hobby butterfly lol! Still, I'm hacking away at my Volkite Caliver lads! :)

  2. Dudeee.. don't give up. Actually, I find that two working week might be a bit tight for painting like 10-15 models to a high standard, that might be the reason folks having problem to complete the challenge...

    I guess the later throwdown of Elite, Fast, Heavy and HQ slot we will see more participant finish the model on time (mainly because those slot normally consist of less model =p)

  3. Cheer up bro, there's still time to finish them.

    But, knowing you, those marines are probably already fully painted by now.

  4. I wished that was the case Iqbal but unfortunately not. They will not be showcased at tomorrow's throwdown. I'll bring the pieces to prove that I actually did try to get them done but failed miserably.

    Goh, I hope you're right about the later throwdowns man ;)
