So I have been figuring out how to do a Plog or more what to put in it.

I have a number of projects that are in various stages, and it has always felt strange to jump in with them. That is not to say that my various other projects won't get some lime light. But I wanted to start this Plog with something new.

So as a belated Xmas gift I received One of Tor Gamings Britananian starter cans



In the can are 3 Grenadiers



9 Troopers



and 2 Dragoons



I am very pleased with the quality of the models. Lots of character and details. So setting about cleaning mold lines and such. Green stuff and pinning just to make sure they stay together. Tomorrow I will undercoat them and start painting.



So a start. Then maybe move on to the pile of recently stripped Guardsmen...

(edit: hopefully Images work!(Images resized!))

I will do my best Viktor! (More so now I know how to upload photos!) I have worked out how to achieve the scheme I am going to use, using a trusty old Marauder I had in my bits box.

So should get that started soon!

Small up date.

Undercoated



Basecoated for wood and "flesh" (Sackcloth sounds wrong lol!)



Will add more as I complete them.

A quick update (I have also started the Troopers, but they will come later on!)

More work on basecoats. Blue, white, brass. Yeah I guess a little French styled...



Sack-flesh almost complete! As well as highlights and a few washes applied, mainly to the brass areas.



And showing the start of a Trooper



The flesh at base coat lot of work to do!
The flesh starts with an Iyanden Darksun, then gets a thin coat of Desert Yellow, then a thin coat of Kommando Khaki and a light dry brush of Bleached Bone. Then a thin wash of Ogryn Flesh and once dry a heavier wash of 1:1:1 Devlin Mud, Gryphonne Sepia and Water!

I worked my way through the many 100s of updates on yours the other night Vik! Sometimes there are benefits to insomnia .

Glad you like them, there is a lot of work to get done yet and a few more being ordered soon... It is nice to be able to relax and paint for once!

You Plog is a pretty amazing one in all honesty!

Can't wait to see what you do with the Britananian puppets. I just need to decide if I want to get another Starer can or just a few blisters, decisions, decisions...

From the new mini rules two or more small units (so Troopers 6 to 9 and 3 Grenadiers for example).

Think it my be a Hero and a few other bits to be honest

So an update. After not sleeping most of the week and having to start packing things away it has been quite nice to actually get started on the Troopers Properly and to start detailing the the rest.

So here we are, Grenadiers and Dragoons with some added details



The same again, but showing them from a slightly better angle! The Grenadiers at least



Troopers! At last you are beyond being basecoated!



Problem with being so pale is you reflect natural light so well :( But on the other hand, all the troopers are now fully fleshed out



Next up is to do the blue coats, white stripes and brass buttons (but for the eyes dark silver I think!)

And another small update. I think I would have got another one done if it hadn't been for the damn snow shower!

Anyway I managed to get all the flesh done so it was on to getting coats prepared.

Okay so first is showing three Troopers from the front, Necron Abyss as a nice thin even coat over all the coats.



Just showing one Trooper from behind, just to give you and idea (and so later on I can remember how I high light them...), one for each highlight shall be added I think.



This last one is a little blury but it makes me smila The look on the Space Wolves face and the little girl looking away from the troopers sneaking up on her...



More tomorrow!

those lil puppets are in some way exactly the the same way charming as my robots are... cuteness with an edge...

and lol... it is funny how some pics get such a scenic character after you can see the whole on screen... that SW chap is very funny to see^^

It is the Look and hear me rawr! expression I think

And I know what you mean. Your robots also have that Neo-Victorian awsomeness! If you ever did get them cast up I would happily pick up a few (maybe add them to some cowboy stuff and find some suitable rules for steampunk gang games hmmm...). Puppets and robots are both very kool

for me he looks like:"WTF"... who let those puppets of their strings...?
well plans are under way to make them castable... probably this will take a while...but i am atm feeling rather good about that idea...

and that game idea... sounds like a toystory version of necromunda^^

It kind of does. Mind I think I have been reading too much Steampunk fiction of late. Might have to sit down and write some Stichpunk fiction... Might be a profit in it

And awesome, if you do get them cast I would happily pick a few up, look like something that would be very rewarding to paint

make that more...rather easy to paint...they are pretty blocky...kind of a plastic card version of lego bricks^^

as for steampunk fiction... care to name a few you found a good read? i recently only ever read my fist novel... george mann´s "affinity bridge" ... which i will shortly continue to follow in his other two books as well... nice sherlock holmes inspired steampunk story... not that much of a surprise but it has lots of interesting ingredients...

and stitchpunk....you could start by making up some fullf of your recent puppets^^


i would like to read something new like this...will this involve anything voodoo like?

Dangerous Outrider






That is an idea on the voodoo and also fluff for the blue coats.
May have to think about names for stuff the next few days.

The series I am currently reading is Clockwork Century by Cherie Priest, American Civil war, Steampunk warmachines and airships. And lots of Zombies too! Good reads. Also the Leviathan Series by Scott Westerfeld, more young teen fiction, but still very well written. Mutant animals vs Steam/Dieselpunk Robots in a WW1 setting!

Heard some good things about Tales of Ketty Jay too. Retribution falls and The Black Lung Captain are the ones that spring to mind.

The George Mann Series look like good reads too!

And yeah chunky models are sometimes nicer to work with (hell one of the reasons Space Marines sell well!)

if i could highlight i bet these could look way better...but alas i am still learning... so^^ yep SM sell pretty well...tho they grew a bit old on me...started too with a SM army...but it never got finished...lol...so do my IG...but in a more interesting way^^

Ah but your project is an alternate Guardsman army so it is all good. I will return to my Guard in time and get them repainted for the final time! They are just stripping down for now.

As for my Marine army pretty much all completely done, about 3 squads I need to fully finish then army wide detailing. But alas no drive to do them at present!

On the reading front I have been reading mainly Black Library stuff, but I don't know all gone a bit stale at present.

But as they say a change is as good as a rest

...never fully understood that one...has a very sarcastic ring to it^^

i haven´t read any 40k books yet... always wanted to read the commissar cain storyline, but they charge atm too much for these ar ebay...so won´t happen soonish...

well i was quite ambitious when i first started... went way overboard and tried to make a huge army for my first one... i could probably field at least 3-5 tacticals and then about 20 if not more termies...but i have only one rhino and one predator...they are in desperate need to be taken cared for...horribly job has been done of the previous owner... and then jumppack marines...and lots of bikes...but i lost interest in them...one day i might revisit them too...probably to make them for my sons...


as for alternative guardsmen...well fatty...he insists to use them as count as SM... in a way i like that, but guardsmen i think would be better tho in my opinion...

I always thought it was a statement of sarcasm too. But can't help but feel that I didn't want to give up my hobby, and rather than take a break from it I started something different

Commissar Cain is a good arc of stories, nice with added humour and a bit of passion. Good reads

I was like that with my Chaos Army for Fantasy, thought big and then hated it :(

And what about using the robots as Storm Troopers? They are bigger and badder than normal Guardsmen

i too have thought of using them as counts as stormtoopers...really it is kind of obvious..the gear atm i give them just screams vets/stromtoopers ...one or the other...^^

yep...bringing too much of a good thing together can later on totally hamper your spirit...so it is a good decision to make a sideproject...even if said side project turns out to be another major one^^

I think that would be best. Queen Viktoria's Toy Soldiers (More so as that is trooper slang for StormTroopers!). ^^

i have to say i am not that into the other factions of relic...they are from a whole different field of artistic ideas... somehow the rest looks like malifaux and hordes too much for my taste... but the Britananian are so unique that i like them for what they are cute and deadly^^


well it is almost past half three in the morning...time for me to take some sleep...^^

cheers, vik
