Golgfag1's preparation for BOYL 2020

I left BOYL this year with no particular plan of action for next year, so have found myself looking through my boxes looking for some thing to do and found these, they've not been out of their box in years. I painted them about twenty years ago so their a bit chipped and worn around the edges but I'm still please with how they look, so enjoy my previous endeavours, whilst I contemplate taking their compatriots out of their box and daubing a bit of paint, whilst I consider my option for next year.

More pictures of my Space Marines, this time the heavy hitters - dreadnoughts & the light stuff - speeders again, painted twenty plus years ago so a touch battered and worn.

Like the way you are getting straight back into preparation. The flight of land speeders looks good - how have you stopped themfalling apart?

Thanks for the response, I always try to start preparation early (Taking small bites of the elephant) that way I've got at least a chance of getting stuff done in time, I can't leave it to the last minute like Steve / Thantsants I'd be too stressed!

As for the speeders holding together - just lots of glue, pins and varnish, they still break on a fairly regular basis and I just stick em back and re-varnish. 8-)

Next up 2nd squad, again a bit chipped and worn around the edges but still looking pretty good in my book.

Great lot of classic marines.

I love your choice of bright colours, the dreadnoughts are just insane. The marine without helmet in first picture immediately made me think of Frank Sidebottom I think it was the giant red lips :D . So what else do you have in store for us ?

The colour choices were of their time, why would you camouflage Space marines, their there to impose the Emperor's will, thus be a statement of that will in look, deed and word.
I've taken the to do box out of the attic and look through I've four more terminators to finish, another two squads of marines, three speeders, two dreadnoughts and a couple of robots, that should be enough to keep me going, until I settle on a general progression toward BOYL2020.

Loving the dreads and speeders (agree they are a pain to stick together)

As for camo, I think there is space for both in the RT universe - the illustration of camo clad ultras waiting to ambush some orks from a rocky vantage point, Aly Morrison’s blood angel captain in the brown and yellow camo and then that fantastic page in white dwarf which shows the various colour schemes used in lugft hurons rebellion.

And also a big fan of bright reds and blues of the early years, I draw a line at yellow (looking at you imperial fists!)

Well, there's a turn up for the books I took my 40k stuff out out of the attic and placed the first batch on to the painting table for something to do and along comes a game which requires me to paint Empire ! So, everything goes back in the box - watch this space. Paul/Golgfag1

Your ‘to do’ box photo is a treasure trove. What is the face down unpainted robot at the top left?

Thanks, But it's just slipped back to my long grass to do list, As for the figure ID - I think it's the Castellan with various arm and weapon options from the Imperial robot range - http://solegends.com/citcat1989/cat1989p043-01.htm

Enjoy
