My original plan was to chop up 1/35th panthers and use those... but they were a lot of effort and it was difficult to get a group of them to look the same (because of the conversion work).

Finding these Meng tanks was a real piece of luck and I am so glad that I took a chance on them because they are really simple to convert (just weapons) so that they all look unified.

They are also cheaper than my original option and less than half the price of a Leman Russ tank from GW.

Looks great. I just found this new version thread so glad to catch upon the new stuff. I look forward to seeing what you do with the cute Griffin kit you got there. I'm also tempted to get your Ratlings to add to my IG.

Cheers, I'm glad you are enjoying the army build .

I am thinking that the Griffin will end up very influenced by this one (I found the image on Pinterest):


I love the proportions and general look of it .

If you want some of the Halfling Snipers, PM me and I'll send some of the miscast ones I have. They only have the odd hole here and there so will be easy to fill .

That is a cool mech. I love the design of the Griffin, also a classic. I love the helicopter-esque canopy reminds me of a Hind or something. Looking forward to your take on it.

Looking great, fantastic sculpting as ever. I made a tiny start on your Rats in my blog, probably won't paint them just yet but soon tm.

Cool ... it's funny you should mention rats...

I needed a break from painting tanks... and to be honest, it's a bit humid for painting so I decided to build a few Halfling Snipers:



This is three squads of ten, all washed, cleaned up, filled and based, ready for priming .

The good thing is that this means I have ticked off three boxes on my organisation chart... and three platoons now have their ten-strong sniper units .

... and then there were six :



With the completion of this little platoon, I now have six Leman-Russ proxy tanks finished (apart from decals). Now I have to start all over again with the next three and they will be getting Battle-Cannons .

As long as it was just a few snipers....not say 30

Russes look great, love the exasperated commander - although he looks more ratling than squat, is he the squat equivalent of Donald Sutherland in Kelly's Heroes

The remaining four tanks for the tank company :



The one of the left is waiting for an Agrax wash, the one next to it is waiting for priming/base-coating, the one next to that is waiting for a commander to be sculpted before Priming/base-coating and the opne on the right is the overall company command tank and is waiting for a commander and hull weapon to be sorted out before priming/base-coating.

The weather has been humid so I have avoided most of the painting/sculpting and have just been assembling and gap-filling. I think that I will need to replenish a few paints (namely the green spray) to finish them all... but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Cheers .

Everything has slowed down a bit... mostly due to the lovely sunny weather. That said, I am still doing bits and bobs. Currently, I have two tanks all dirtied up, ready for stippling:



With the tank commander for the third tank finished:



His tank is mostly sprayed green, apart from the turret and a few bits of equipment (that will get sorted today ).

This particular tank commander is looking at his digital map while wondering how the hell he ended up so far from where he should be .

Nice solid progress.

Didn't realise that was a digi map though. Thought he was looking at a whiskey decanter wondering where the contents went

Inso you are very talented! I was following this project for a while but recently saw the snipers you sent over to Randy McStab in the flesh - they're fantastically detailed for such small minis.

Keep up the good work.

Cheers .

The Ratlings were a slow process to sculpt. each layer of leaves had to be sculpted and then left to dry before the next layer went on... luckily, it didn't really involve textures or musculature or anything too demanding to sculpt so it wasn't difficult... just time consuming.

Back to the tanks... and with the tank commander sculpted, I have progressed and all of the tanks in his platoon, are now decal ready. I just need to finish painting the tank commander :

No. I sold the green to a private collector and I don't think he had plans to get them cast for resale. Sorry .

A small amount of progress on the proxy Chimera:



Just weapons to go now. I will be going for Heavy-Bolters in the turret and the hull because I asked around and the verdict was pretty unanimous !
