The Deathwatch models from the boxed game Overkill really remind me of Thorin's company. Not in the way that they're going to fight a Dragon under the mountain but in a painting sense. Every sculpt is unique and each model needs to looked at separately from a painting point of view. This squad of eleven models isn't something that can be easily batch painted. What you actually have is eleven models with character level detail on them. That's a daunting process for anyone. I will persevere, so watch this space.
