Well, I figured i'd begin to port my old project over here for a fresh view on it!
But, the army list can be found HERE
And, attached are some slide shows for the army on figures I have built, partially painted, etc... Until recently my modeling was in bouts and fits, so excuse any shoddy progress. I was also lacking in tools and supplies.
Slideshow of Lord Crusader Adonis - First Attempt - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The first incarnation of the Chapter Master Adonis, right after I started back into modeling. He is being drastically re-done.
Slideshow of Standard Bearer W.I.P. - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
A standard bearer in full MK III armor. I liked him, but I ended up finishing him and giving him to a friend at Christmas who started playing BA.
Slideshow of High Prelate Antonious the Warp-Slayer - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
My Chaplain, Antonious a talented friend of mine from London painted up for me after I got the diagnosis on my hands. Poor bloke sent it to me as a gift exchange, and shortly thereafter I started improving. Now I have to match his skill! >.<
Slideshow of Lord Commander Erus, First Chaplain of the Terraneus Praetor - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
A termie chaplain I ended up writing out of the list/army. My first painted model in ages. Nowhere near what I could do, or will be able to do, but it's a start.
Slideshow of High Sanguinary Priest Diocletian the Bloody - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
My Apothecary. He's being re-worked a bit for the new list, but you get the gist of his pose and such for these pics. It was also to show a friend of mine conversions don't always need mass sculpting to be ok. His absent hand is awaiting a graft from a Bro. Corbulo model.
Slideshow of Bro. Castor & Bro. Pollux - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Early experiments in 'counts as' conversions! The dual pistols count as a meltagun (roman tabard) and a Flamer (non tabard). The 'hand flamers' on the other marine are in process of being streamlined and re-worked, as I decided they were far too bulky.
Slideshow of Dread - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
My dreadought, not fully done yet. I intend to add some chained skulls/trophies, and the like. While he's not factored into my current list, I will be keeping him for special situations.
This is the example of my re-worked hand flamer prototype. Fairly satisfied, but it still lacks something.
Slideshow of 9th Captain Hadrian - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
A rough basecoat of a mini I no longer need in my list made from spare bits to test out a new brand of paints. Verdict: Like the paints, shamed myself on th epaint job. I'll finish him eventually, but he was the Captain of my Devastator Co.
Slideshow of Veteran Brother Aurelius the War-Child - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
My veteran assault marine w/ 'lightning claws'. Counts as, obviously. DA running robed legs, a BT upper torso w/ the tabard snipped off, DA MK II hooded helm, Co. champion shoulder pads, Khorne Berserker Gauntlets, Dante's jump pack, and two SW gladius swords. He still needs pommels on the swords, and the rope part on the back of his torso needs GS'd in to make it look leather, but he's basically done.
Preliminary mock ups of Assault Terminators.. Still some stuff to be added, but they'll do for a friendly game in a pinch.
Well, that's all for now. I'll be updating relatively soon, as often as I find bits to make models with. I might even do a write up of squad themes/bits etc.., so you blokes get an idea of where this is going.
'For His Will And Honor, Our Life And Breath' - Warcry of the Black Saints
Especially on the termies it will be a while. And these are from old slavaged Chaos conversions to test out how to convert the helmets, etc... I will be starting fresh (so I don't have to worry about previous conversions marring) and use these guys as guide. I will be redoing the shoulder pads with plasticard/cereal box, and adding a pre-heresy style gorget, and some 'leather' strips on the shoulder pads, which will be much bulkier and squared off. I might also do a small bit of true-scaling to alter their height, because, as they stand to me now, terminators aren't really towering/hulking enough for my tastes.
Dear All Concerned,
I think this project looks interesting, and I am proud to say that I will try to watch it closely for updates. Nice modification on the Termies, but the arm pads do seem a little oversized...
Other than that, they look great!
Keep it up,
