Thanks.
I began taking notes while working on the Sons of Pus. If I ever go back to add units or such I'll know what steps were taken Also, it also helps to find parts that were missed.


I finished the test models!

Overall I'm satisfied with the results. The only thing I'm questioning are the shoulder pads. I may re-paint the shoulder pads and reverse the black and blue.

I did paint the wings but didn't take any photos You can see the results in the assembled photos.

I prefer the look of the gray base. I feel it matches the scouts and has a fun "cartoonie" look.


Next up - Assault Marines


Thanks and take care

Thanks. Just what I going for.
Looks like gray base was the preferred version.


Okay, the more I looked at the shoulder pads the more I became less than thrilled with the results. I reversed the colors. The iconography and trim are now blue and the base color is black. To me it just seems to work better.

I tried a paynes grey/cyan wash on the plasma gunner and a cyan wash on the missile launcher. The missile launcher came out a tad more blue and I will most likely use it in the future.

Thanks and take care

I'm up in the air on the switch, I think both have merits, the one nice thing about the swap is it brings out the shoulder pads trim color a great deal better than before.

If not for the mediocre who would be great, and thank goodness for those who are just terrible they make even those who are mediocre look great

I want the trim to stand out more and that is why I tried the reverse scheme.

If the sneaker fits, wear it!
To me, the gray looks much better. It will require more time, but it will be worth it.

On to Assault marines. I have a squad of five containing an inferno pistol dude and vet sarge with a fist. Also, a Sanguinary Priest with a jump pack and lightning claw (Utility Belt Buzz) will be joining them. They will eventually be flying around inside a Stormraven (Hamm).

The back packs are already done. I will attach the backpacks once they are painted.

Nothing very different from the tactical squad except i used bolt pistols and gave them chainswords. The swords really don't fit Space Ranger theme, but I don't want there to any confusion on what models they are representing.

For Utility Belt Buzz I used an Space Wolves head and just filed down the hair so it looks like Buzz's hood.

Thanks and take care,

You definitely have your work cut out for you, but you seem to be enjoying it, and that's all that matters.

Query : Did you ever think about leaving off the shoulderpads? Buzz himself has those gangly looking arms jutting out of the massive center torso, it would have looked odd but certainly fitting for the character.

It is fun. The conversions are fairly minor and there is enough variation in painting to keep from getting to cumbersome.

Answer: I chose to use Toy Story as a basis for inspiration not to make an exact duplicate. I thought about keeping the shoulder pads, but it looked awful and I wasn't going to make a whole army like that. At the end I want people to see a Space Marine army based on Toy Story and not just a Toy Story army. I hope that answers your question.

Thanks! I am using clear bases. I have a few pictures of Andy's room that I will be using in a display base. I haven't used clear bases before so if it doesn't work out game play wise or if the bases becomed scuffed than I will do something else. What that something else is I don't know


On to new stuff. I built the Stormraven. It was the first one I built and it went together fairly well. I will say ther will be no rush to make a second

No conversions or anything special ... this time

I had some time to start painting Hamm!

I missed photos of the first three steps

Step 1 - Gray Primer
Step 2 - Master Series Paint Entraill Pink
Step 3 - 1/2 msp Entrail pink, 1/2 vgc Squid Pink

I think it will take awhile to paint Hamm and its times like this I wish I had an airbrush

Good stormraven, that is certainly a new look for that vehicle.

I'm going to take a flying leap with this one and guess that any assault marines you make are going to have wings so they can "fly" just like buzz light year?

Edit sorry just looked back and saw you had already done that. Doh

Too infinity and bejoooonnnnddddd...... As i fall in to a chasm of despair.

Thanks! This wasn't as difficult as a first generation land raider crusader, but it was a wee bit trickier than a Valkyrie. The main body was difficult to line up properly.


Okay, so I've had some time to look at it. And I did not liking what I saw. It is too red, much to red.

I went back to my reference picture and started over. I had some "rose" colors from a previous project a few years ago and fortunately the paints were still good (way to go, Vallejo).

I reapplied a coat of MSP Entrail Pink and built up from there.

I think this looks much better and is a closer match to Hamm.

Next up - Highlighting black!
