Another view from other side of table.
Ryans Sea Guard hit the Thunderers in woods and Stone Thrower crushes some White Lions.
Spear Elves ambush and for me into action while the Eagles move along killing more machines.
I declare a load of charges to get away, somehow the Longbeards right in front of the Spears fail an easy charge.
Ryans Reavers hit the Thundereres in the woods in support. He get's a big dual charge on the Beards and offs them, the Hammerers finish the White Lions and ready to turn tail.
Ryan having smoked most of my army at this point turns for the kill.
I flee every charge he declares preserving points and although there's no picture to show it those warriors on the left side do make the long charge and kill that Bolt Thrower.

Rise of Legends - Da Burna Boy'z (Pt. 8)

So I've finished assembling my Regiment of Renown and I've finally come down to the painting stages. I'm quite excited about getting into this part of the process. I've purchased every green paint GW makes so that I can experiment with multiple green color schemes on my Orcs as I don't plan on having them all a single color. I feel it will add to the mob variety and the army will look better because of it. I could of course be wrong and they might look terrible; but I rather doubt that.  So let's begin shall we.  First a quick look at my guys and then the paints I'll be using.
 Hooray black primer!
And here are the multitude of greens I'll be using.  For these first 3 models that I'll be working on in this article I'm actually only using three of these paints; but I'll get to the others.  While I don't bother to show the rest of the paints I use I do tend to use rather limited numbers of other colors to help me stick with a unifying scheme.  Even though they wont all have those same colors in the same places I think it will overall help pull the units together.
