    HW team examples

    i was asked a while ago to post some pictures of my HW teams (despite being not 100% complete).

    i made all 15 of these HWs from 1 box (and some extra troops and extra bases).

    i used cut sprue for the rubble. takes time to get the arms to do what you want them to!

    I take it you put the lascannons and autocannons on "rubble" made from the sprue?

    They look very nice, GJ Boxant.

    The link to your veteran squads doesn't work for me; it directs me to some random picture advertising myphotoalbum.

    Great jon BoxAnt. Puts mine to shame, but I am re-doing mine. Hopefully will be able to be decent qualtiy. I especially like your Lascannon, but I just love Lascannons!

    Why the Red shoulder pad?

    I noticed you only have one guardsman glued onto every base, really smart should have done that with my bases, sometimes hard to keep track on how many guardsmen there are still left on the base.

    ps: all your base are belong to us!

    yeah, i cut up some sprues and glued the together in order to get a "rubble" look. i'm going to paint them in a rusty metal look.

    for fluff reasons. i based my army off the cover of Codex:CityFight. they're the S.S.A.T. 108th Company of the Cadian 8th Reg.

    the red shoulder pad is to remember the original 108th company who were all killed defending a key location in a traitor rebellion.

    yeah, it really helps not only for the whole removing casulties thing. but i also get to have more men if i don't use all the HWs (instead of them being glued to the unused HW)!


    they still have a ways to go in the painting department but i've been a lil lazy as of late...

    oh, the Pictures of the Vets are working now

    Ah, nice looking veterans too.

    I need to copy your idea of ripping the second guy off the HW base.

    Looks great...I think I might steal your Idea and only attach one gurdsmen to each base ^_^
    I noticed that some of your models still have flash on them though...maybe you should carve that off...

    And, where di you get all 12 large bases? You said you made it from one box...I thought they only came with 3 or 4 large bases...Mine did

    I was going to do that but then after making a quick count i realised i wouldn't have enough bases for the non-hw guardsmen i needed for the tournament i played this weekend. It is easily fixed though since i haven't done my bases yet. I could just cut the loader from the base and the glue that remains on the base will be hidden by whatever i decide to put on my bases.

    Nice work putting up the images BoxANT, a pity i lost my patience waiting for the pictures to come up so i was forced to come up with a solution of my own, though i couldn't build all 15 the way i did it. I decided to ditch my mortars aswell because i thought it would be nice to add some more variety to the poses of my guardsmen by having some use the kneeling legs from the HW crew sprue.

    I converted my heavy bolters to be carried by one guardsman and thus use the smaller base. I took an arm holding a flamer and cut away the flamer part except for the strap and the hande and mounted the heavy bolter there. It fitted quite well, but it looked a bit silly to have the guardsman carry such a huge gun. Since i didn't want any mortars and since missile launchers are easily done i took the the 'feet' that the ML/mortar uses and put it under the heavy bolter so in case the guardsman wanted to shoot with the heavy bolter without tipping forward he could use the 'legs' for more balance and accuracy. I gave him a backpack to because it still looked a bit silly when he carried that big gun and the end result turned out pretty good. If anyone asks the heavy bolter is made of alunium or some other light metal.

    I like the veterans. I hope you won't mind if i steal some ideas for mine?

    flash.. yeah, you think you got it, but that camera really brings out the flash lines
    i'll have to touch up those damn helmets!


    i got a dozen large bases seperatly. they're the flat ones, i can't seem to find them online, but you can always use these:
