Bits Needed!!

I am putting out an all hands request for the below bits.

I need as many as these as I can get for my heavy weapons conversions.  As it stands I can only make 2 Heavy Weapons Squads.  If you have, or know anyone who has and wants to part ways with these let me know.  We can talk trade, purchase, or charity.  Thanks everyone.

2000 Points Painted and Ready for WAR!!!

Well I finally got my 2000 point army painted.  Here is the list:

 170  CCS- 4xPlasmagun, Plasma Pistol & Power Weapon                           
              -Chimera w/ Multilaser & Heavy Flamer   
 465  Vet Squad (x3)- 3xMeltagun, Chimera w/ Multilaser & Heavy Flamer    
 510  Vet Squad (x3)- 3xPlasmagun, Chimera w/ Multilaser & Heavy Flamer  
   65  Guardsman Marbo-                                                                           
 320  2x Manticore-                                                                                 
 185  Leman Russ- Lascannon, Heavy Bolters

This is what the army looks like assembled:

Here are some additional photos of individual units:

That is it for now.  I will probably post some more pictures once I get them taken.  My goals from here are to paint up 2 Autocannon Squads, another squad of Sentinels, and a 2 squad infantry platoon.

1st Three Squads Painted

Well I finally got off my lazy butt and started painting.  I was prompted by an upcoming league that is requiring minimum of 3 colors to play.  So without further ado here is a sampling of my models.
 Sorry that some of them are blurry.  I don't have the best camera.  Anyway, there are 3 identical squads of "Veterans" armed with 3 meltaguns.  They will be embarked on Chimeras.  These will not be my final Veterans once my whole army is complete.  I am just trying to get an army painted quickly so I am going for 6 Veteran Squads.  The next 3 will be armed with plasmaguns using the fantastic tutorial located here:  Gravis Plasma Conversion

For anyone interested, Here is my color pallet;
Blood Red- Tunic and Stripe on Pants
Mordian Blue- Pants
Iyanden Dark Sun- Eppaulettes and Trimming
Chaos Black- Boots
Skull White- Helmet and Belt
Elf Flesh- Flesh
Mithril Silver- All Metal
Calthan Brown- Weapons

Once all the base coats were put on, I brushed on polyurethane stain over the entire model then sprayed with dull coat.  Let me know what you think of the results.  I know that "dipping" is sometimes considered a no-no in the community, but I am pleased with the results.  The only thing I think I need to do is add detail to the mouths and eyes.  I hope you enjoy.
