Thanks for the likes and comments everyone. 

I have been struggling with this update, picture hosting and uploads giving me grief. I will do my best, but it may be a bit chopped up. 

I cleaned and magnetised my Veydreth this week. 

I have been concentrating on the Dindrenzi Core. Many pictures in no particular order:

Thanks for looking, now go try out the new STATS that @Spartan Derek has posted and put your game results in the Battle Report section. This is our game people, giving feedback now is better than whining when the game is released

Cracking brush work mate! I really like the colour scheme. It feels coherent and is pleasant to look at. I like the weathering. Very nice!

Thanks guys. The Comments really help. 

First up I have the next marker

My Dindrenzi Core is done. The Heavy Tank took a lot of effort. I would pick some parts for colour, and then sit back. Over and over, it was not enough. I even went and revisited the light tanks by painting their weapons Orange/Yellow.

The Dindrenzi Core is the First Core I have done Start to Finish without significant break. It nearly burnt me out. It was good that I had the Markers and FSA WR Frigates for change of colour. I look forward to seeing how this scheme goes on Bigger Dindrenzi units, like the Command and Walkers. But that will have to wait a bit, I need a Break from it

Next up up I am actually painting Infantry.... Directorate Infantry.

Infantry takes me ages, so let's see how far I get in a week

 

As always, thanks for looking

Excellent work West! I really like the Dindrenzi color scheme you came up with. Good luck with the infantry! They do quite a while to get painted but once done they are some of my favorite pieces.

Thanks so much for the likes and great comments. 

So actually quite good progress on the Directorate Infantry.

But not much time spent on anything else. 

I have under coated my Veydreth Allies. I am really looking forward to their Core. Next step is a nice dark wash. Then I bring the colours up.

Thanks @alamo. Similar infantry you say, well great minds think alike. :) Which Force are you Deploying in Sudan? British?

the Veydreth will look something like this:

Super simple, low on Detail, Fast!

Just what I need after the labour of the Dindrenzi and Aquan. 

 

Thanks @cm284 the Tank Destroyers were great models to paint. 

Thanks for looking, I hope you like the mini update.

Very nice work on the infantry and their bases.

Red and gold colour scheme for tanks is absolutely smashing! I can't wait to see all of the tanks painted. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

Great job! Infantry would take me forever to paint.......... Planetfall units in general would take me forever. I would be trying to make each base look like a miniature diorama.

Thank you all for your comments and likes, it encourages me to keep painting. 

A busy week for me, lots of work. Also I distracted myself with my FSA Corsair Racketeer Project. I added some parts of a Corsair Cruiser to a Works Raptor Ship to make a unique Corsair ship. It's under my FSA thread if you are interested. I am really happy with the result. 

This week for Planetfall I finished the final touches on my Directorate Infantry. They have their top coat too.

My Veydreth have started to get their Wash. A slow process. It's ok the painting will go quicker. I also finished all their bases.

My next Dindrenzi unit will be the Assault Walkers. Got them undercoated.

This is some of the growing selection of Works In Progress

Well @alamo, Allied Troops do use the same uniform and equipment. Even when deployed down under. :)

Maybe finishing the Veydreth next..Maybe 

I am going to try hard to work on my Dindrenzi Infantry as I paint the Walkers. I really should do the Assault tanks at the same time. But that's a lot to develop at once. So I will see how I go.
