yup 1year and 2months exactly lol.
Anyway here is my WIP, I collect mainly guard though i have a few other things on the workbench at the mo. This thread will mostly chart painting as I like to keep my conversions minor, however, there will be some and some scratchbuilding of vehicles!
A list of my armies would be appropriate with their status at the moment, this will be updated as I go along:
medic (refreshments of tea!)
new 400 point army to practice on,
Squad 1; sarge finished WIP
Squad 2; WIP sarge finished
platoon command; finished
vet squad; finished
7th comitatense, 1st company
this is my main army and is nearly finished its mainly the elite section that are on the table at the moment as the platoons are finished. The transports for this army (halftracks are all being scratchbuilt but tedium set in so this has been put on a backburner till i have painted all of my figures! (for guard at least!) so on the table:
grenadier squad, PIP
vet squad 1, PIP
vet squad 2, PIP
7th comitatense, 2nd company with elements of the fifth.
This is the newest addition to my forces, i discovered that it wouldnt be difficult, due to my list setup, to create a whole battalion of guardsmen so the madness began so far
platoon 1 command; finished
platoon 1 squad 1; PIP
platoon 1 squad 2; have the parts havnt started the men
armoured car (salamander); WIP
these guys are my all infantry army and ive done quite a few they have been pushed back as i need some parts and conversion for the officers.
3 voxes; PIP
3 squaddies; PIP
12th liminatii light,
this is another army thats gone in for a re-paint, they were a desert force with camo and light infantry but this is changing, a new list hasnt been finalised but there are many men to be painted so;
Command squad; finished
2 men; PIP
1 officer; finished
4 snipers; PIP
1 sarge; finished
1 sniper; finished
6 guardsmen; finished
3rd Solentian, with 17th solentian lancers;
These guys are hugely converted lots of greenstuff and a napoleonic theme, even going for square bases, army list is nearly sorted now so work may restart soon. all of the finished models have been painted accept;
platoon 1 first squad; WIP
7 rough riders; WIP
4th Solentian armour;
This is my tank regiment, each squadron is painted for the warzone they are in, im going to do a map of the area they garrison so i know what trrops to give what weathering!
3 russ; finished
Righty seen as im not getting a huge amount of input on warseer i though id start my blog up here with some things that need finishing!
Il start with these, they are the grenadiers for one of my armies and they have a hlftrack (vdr'd) to ride in. i need help with ideas for their sarge, i know how im going to do the rest (well mostly) but the sarge really has me stumped il post pics and see what people think...
ive got close ups of the painted guy and can do some of the others on request
and their halftrack (which as been partially dismantled to get the rest of the regiment going!
the halftrack also has shots from other angles so please ask if you want to see them.
so can anyone help with the sarge?
and any other advice?
Yeah some more pictures of the half track would be nice and maybe a close up of the finished & painted infantry model, so we can see what your scheme is like
Back from the dead to haunt new houses.
Send me a hello if you remember me.
ive only got other angle shots of the halftrack so il put a couple up but i dont have any close ups of it (as i said its being revamped well the hells anyway so wont be up and running for a while!)
righty the halftrack
they seem to be close ups after all!
and the grenadier
Please note there is a max setting of 600px wide, and I am being rather strict on this actually. - KU
That's a nice vehicle. I really like the halftracks they have just that primitive determination that I think is the soul of the Imperial Guard.
The sarge you say.. I know there are some bits in the Empire Militia box that would fit perfectly. There are arms with armour to give that air of Close Combat that (in my world) separates the sarges from the privates.
There is also two arms proudly bearing a two handed sword, not to mention the pistol hands that are great indeed.
All those parts need just a little 40k-ification to suit an IG army of the 41 millenium.
I have just the parts you mention! i will have a fiddle and see what i can do.
Right an update.
At the end of the last ek i had a battle so i ield repaired my bassie v crude greenstuff blobs though i am thinking of looking up some field repair photos (or asking my dad he used to make models and fixed battlefield damage on heli's!) just to add some character.
In preperation for the battle i also finished off a russ tidied up its weathering and numbered the turret, i may do more but thatll do for now.
In the last couple of days i have been studiously avoiding my dissertation by playing civilisation and while waiting for my nextturn picked up a mini and started painting. before i knew it i had a production line going (ntil i spilt black ink on the cream carpet which i hope the land lady misses when i move out!)
This production line has produced the following:
1 3rd solentian squaddie
1 3rd solentian sarge
1 3rd solentian JO
1 33rd Hassnian heavy bolter without loader
1 33rd Hassnian autocannon with loader
2 33rd Hassnian officers
1 33rd Hassnian sarge
1 33rd Hassnian plasma
1 33rd Hassnian vox
10 33rd Hassnian squaddies
1 black company missile team
5 black company squaddies
thats a whopping 28 men in two days and a bit!
to give you an idea of what the HAssnians are looking like here is a vet sarge:
Thanks Andusciassus that idea worked perfectly and here is the result of a furtive hour or two last night,
right a few pics taken, here is the grenadier squad and a couple of close ups. I still need to do the greenstuff but here they are:
sorry for the bad pics, couldnt be arsed to do the lighting properly.
the whole squad
A guy throwing a grenade
there are another two guys ive built but they are a bit boring, I think ive encountered a problem, my bestial brown has dried up and i am skint soo im gona try starting from dark flesh and highlighting by mixing snakebite leather.
greenstuff will be used to get them masks and also the plasma and sarges helpistol need a little to fill in gaps!
so comments please.
PS i have taken photos of the other stuff but i dunno how to put a link into my photobucket account that isnt past the password. Can anyone explain how?
The sarge looks great, as does the guy throwing the grenade, but I'm not so sure if I like the plasma. It may be just me but it looks a little odd.
thats probably because i havnt grenstuffed the end yet. The dark bit on the end is a plasma pistol part, and the gap just underneath that will be filled completely.
Il post a couple of pics up when ive done the greenstuff so you can see.
PS i know its a little unclear but if you look in the first picture you can see what itll look like formt he other plasma in the squad.
