Affton, MO. USA

Always loved the idea of Field Police, even converted a few back in the day to go with my Adeptus Arbites. The store I worked at had these eyeglass repair kit displays at all the registers, each one had flashing red lights that attached to a AA battery pack. I condensed those down on a daily basis and brought home all the light kits when the displays ran empty. The Field Police had The older Rhinos with the flashing lights . "Pull over Abbadon you !"

Some more WIP from the bitz box marine army I'm definitely not starting but just playing around with.

Seriously though where did all these marine bodies come from? I've not bought marines in over 10 years!



Nothing too extraordinary, need to fix the gap in that jump pack and file that pistol.

The only interesting thing, besides seeing how many shades of grey GW plastic has come in over the years, is that the sentinel chainsaw (one of my favorite bits) is the perfect size for some sort of exo-skeleton chainsaw attachment (counts as Evicerator). I figure it's standard urban combat equiment for clearing debris, cutting through bulkheads etc.

Thinking of replacing all the normal chain swords with some kind of baton or club. Cracking skulls is much more 'law enforcement' than hacking up bodies with a chainsaw.

If you have pics I'd love to see them.

As for pull over...

Went with the shock mauls over the chainswords. It took almost my entire stash of Skitarii mauls but I think it's worth it.

I think I bought one box of assault marines, in 1999.

And I know I built them because they were my tests for a samurai marine army (never got beyond those 5).

Somehow I was able to build 10 assault marines (I had to bitz order the jump packs) all with beaky heads and X strap torsos out of spare bitz. Plus 20 or so starter set marines.

Also I never want to see another damn chain sword again.



So about 50, 60 test models now...

Yeah. "Test" models.

And I specifically ordered the parts for 20 Assault Marines all with Mk.6 beakie heads. All 30 of them have beakie heads. Funny how that happens.

Now I genuinely don't know how many unbuilt Van/Sternguard Marines I have, and I know I have even more spare Marines on top of that (probably one section of a bits box with 20-30 legs alone). Then there are the Deathwatch Marines. Must be, 40 or them untouched on sprues.

Still not as bad as the recent clean-up I did where I kept finding full Custodes sprues in the weirdest of places.

Great looking beakies. I will always love the old marines. And you have done some really unique poses and bits. I hope you will decide to paint these guys up at some point.

Making some fancy pants judges now...







The BB Imperial Nobility look absurd but they're easy to head swap and a lot of the more over the top bitz can be omitted to make some classic Imperial Noble/Officer types.

And they're fairly cheap on ebay now.

I've seen people converting Blood Bowl humans into Necromunda minis. They work surprisingly well.

Definitely a fun kit. As usual there's some annoying steps that seem designed to confound converters (each one had a unique neck so you have to file them to do head swaps), but overall fun.



This guy worked out so well I might expand the Mobile Oppression Throne to include a multi melta servitor and a scribe

So much fun.



After some thought I figured a skull head dude admiring a skull was too much skull so I went with this.

They are fun and convertable models, but HUGE, they tower over 3rd/4th edition marines and anything human. Fine for assassins and the like but troublesome if you're mixing them into IG or Empire for that matter.

So a few pages and years back you'll find my Space Fleet mania.

One unrealized project was doing a fleet of 9 Gothic Battleships for the nine Loyalist Founding Chapters.

But of course that plan required a several OOP models so I've kept an eye on ebay hoping to eventually score enough.

When I saw some today I figured I should first check the Closet of Shame to see how many I already have and, therefore, how many I need.

Now my Closet of Shame ain't got nothing on HBMC's who manages to find whole unpainted armies there but it's OK.

So what's the count?



So, to make my set of 9 ships I need uh... Negative Three more. Apparently I already have 12 unpainted ones.

Still maybe I should get some in case I run low.

Whole unbuilt armies. There's a difference.

Oh dear. I think I did a thing.



Plus



2 tank pods, 1 smaller tank for the pilot and engine, walkways for the solar panels...

Yeah, this could work.

The motor pool is growing.

The new Rhinos (not even 20 years old!) are nice models, shame about the price.

Yeah this is going OK.





Lots to do of course but it looks possible.

There's still time to switch it to a more conventional design rather than a reference to a Star Wars ship like 4 people on Earth remember, but damnit if I'm going to this I'm doing it right.

Haha, that looks fun!
The solar panels look a bit small though, especially on the bomber, do you have any of the secmech "curved' walkways to widen it?
