Finally Finished Painting... at least... this army. (pictures included!)

Well, after lots of hours painting on the stupid army, it's finally done.  Finished.  Complete.  For now.  Lots of ways to make it more competitive I think, but those'll have to wait til I get more money, lol.  I took a few pictures- let me know what you think :-)

First, here's the list I want to use:

Librarian w/ Null Zone, Avenger

10x Tactical Marines w/ Melta, Combi-melta, Multi-melta, Rhino, Power Fist
10x Tactical Marines w/ Flamer, Combi-flamer, Missile Launcher, HB Razorback
10x Tactical Marines w/ Flamer, Combi-flamer, Missile Launcher, Rhino

5x Terminators w/ 5x Thunder Hammer/Storm Shields
Dreadnought w/ Multi-melta, Heavy Flamer, Drop Pod

2x Attack Bikes w/ Multi-meltas
2x Speeders w/ Multi-melta, Heavy Flamer
1x Speeder w/ Multi-melta, Heavy Flamer

To make it more competitive, I can drop the 3 speeders and deadweight/useless dreadnought, and add 7 Multi-melta attack bikes.  I think they're great, here's a link to my tactica on Attack Bikes, if you're interested.

Alright, enough keeping you waiting.  Here's the pictures I promised.

As always, CLICK ON THE PICTURES IF YOU WANT BIGGER PICTURES! (hint:  if you click on them, you can actually see highlights that these smaller versions don't show)

It feels bigger when you're actually looking at it, lol.

Senor Vulkan and his Librarian friend, who is actually a wizard for Empire out of the Fantasy line.  I'm using the other wizard that came out of that box to use as my Mephiston :)

I have the dread/drop pod because they took multiple hours to build/paint, especially the pod.  I have 2 others painted too, and the dreads as well, but for some reason, I didn't take pictures of them.
Also, a random Dakka Pred from when I used to want 3 of them.

These are the first 2 attack bikes.  Their numbers will start to grow eventually...

So, what do you think?  List critique?  Painting critique?  Pats on the back are also acceptable :)

Now off to paint my Blood Angels, more Wolves, Dark Elves, Cryx, and Orks, lol.  sigh.

Nicely done and congrats. It's like a huge weight is off your shoulders once everything is finally done.

Thanks, yeah it's true for sure. I have this annoying tendency to want to expand armies that I play, which gives me a slightly ominous feeling about these guys. I already know I want to use 7 more attack bikes in the list... /sigh

So many models, so little time. I'm secure in the knowledge that I'm safe from the saying 'If someone ever painted every model they owned, they'd die'.
