So much information! What a day. To summarise for here though, the list I was working on is now 2190. Far too high. Gonna cut 3 Longstrike, bringing it down to 1950. On the plus side, that's 3 less models to paint to get a legal army on the table. Celestial Vindicators' new rules though... they really aren't the best!
And that's all the black underarmour complete - whoop whoop! Just for the sake of another pic, here's my Annihilator. Took a punt, using contrast black for the shield. As a base, I'm chuffed with how it came out. Won't be painting again until next Monday now. Next up will be more back. This time Corvus and I'll be getting the base down on the backs of the shields and the Longstrike guns... off the top of my head I think that's about it. Actually got a game tomorrow night so pump
Whichever red leather I choose, it'll work as well for the strap behind the shield. Thinking about how to paint these has been on my mind. In the planning stage of this project I, for some unknown reason, decided to completely ignore the backside of the shields. Think I've settled on just black for the back of the shield, red leather for the strap, and then silver for the bit connecting the strap to the shield. Now I'm looking at those bolts... Those bolts were on my mind this morning as they're
I think your pictures look pretty good already, but in any case, here's what has helped me take better photos with my phone camera: Take a picture from further away and then crop it. That helps getting your miniature in to focus properly. Modern phone cameras have high enough resolutions that you won't end up with tiny ant-sized pictures, anyway. Make sure you have natural light and a background for best results. In practice, that just means moving next to a window and holding up a
Going with @Clan's Cynic idea for BR: Morathi, I think it's a good time to start a spoilers and discussion thread about what's going to happen in BR Teclis, instead of the rumours thread. We already have some information from White Dwarf and the Broken Realms short stories.
I've summarized the LRL relvant information from the February White Dwarf here:

The AoS Masters
Inspired by @Ben's question about Better Part of Valour I got curious: What's your favourite scenario? No wrong answer possible.
And let us know why!
For me it's gotta be Relocation Orb. I get that's a bit of a crabshoot but it's always fun. It requires both anticipation and the ability to react. You need to be able to block, and you need to be able to move. In no other battleplan do I need so much time to decide going first or second.
I love it, never had a bad game with it that wasn't fun.
