Thanks YWS, he is a characteristic little fellow. Whilst waiting for my next Conquest delivery I have been sidelined a bit by some Astra Militarum GSC minis and the Noise Marine that was released over Christmas. Will hopefully have some progress to show off tomorrow.

I am also finishing off some Ad Mech minis with the aim of selling off my Ad Mech army. Only so much shelf space in the house and currently my sizeable Deathwatch, Death Guard, Imperial Knights and growing Celestial Lions look like they will soon be joined by GSC, that Ridgerunner is amazing.

You want more poorly taken, poorly lit and poorly painted pictures of miniatures? You don't? Well here they are anyway.

Have made my start on the Noise Marine, have started with some washes over metallics. I am going to add some more Slaanesh purples and pinks with a candy red guitar. Am just having fun experimenting with this one really. Early days though:





Have also made a little foray into some GSC based Imperial Guard, have got half a squad done thus far. Just a quick scheme really, it is amazing how the GSC upgrade sprue makes such a difference to the Cadian kit:









So that is the unceremonious start to a new GSC army, the remaining 5 member are 4 lasguns and another grenade launcher.

Thanks for looking, comments, criticism, cooking tips and large (hell,even small) cash donations are welcome.

For being made of plastic, that Noise Marine is too metal. Liking the effect on the metallics already. Sergeant Bane is really cool, too.

Cheers YWS, maybe we should just take this to PM's?

I got my delivery of Conquest 19-22, I need to get my arse in gear and finish off my Primaris from the last delivery before even starting on the new stuff. In the meantime I have been adding to my GSC army, yes I am addicted to the new hotness.

I got my Brood Brothers squad finished as well as a Cult Leman Russ, what I learnt from painting the Russ is that I LOVE painting Guard (well GSC) tanks. Definitely more to come of them. Anyway here is my hobby purchase from yesterday:



And here is the Leman Russ, standard loadout of Battle Cannon, Heavy Bolter sponsons and Lascannon at the front:










And here it is with the completed Brood Brothers Squad, probably not even 250pts total but this is the start of my GSC army:



Thanks for looking.

If I had any sort of serious budget right now I’d be hip deep in GSC, I’ll just live vicariously through you though. Can’t wait to see what you come up with on the noise marine.

Great colour choices on the Russ, the purple hints give it that GSC feel while the drab green definitely has it as something that was once IG material. Looking forward to seeing some of the new GSC stuff!

If I wasn't under a mountain of plastic already, I'd be going for the new GSC, interested to see how yours turns out and how the rest of your Conquest subscription goes!

Cheers gents, the Conquest stuff is certainly taking a back seat at the moment. I am also considering ending my subscription after my next delivery with the ETB Redemptor Dreadnought, the thing is with the new Primaris boxed set due out I probably have enough of the other things due to come in the remainder of the subscription. My Death Guard army is also very sizeable so I may have enough there, we shall see.

Anyway I had a second supply drop:



Full disclosure here, I adore the Achilles Ridgerunners. They are *probably* my favourite ever 40k vehicle, case in point I have already bought a third. As it stands I have about 1500pts of GSC, mainly unpainted. I have set about rectifying that. First up is my Primus, a nice enough mini and I am happy with the result:







So that means I have a HQ, troop and Heavy unit painted up, so up next a fast attack choice.

Come in Number 7 your time is up!









Very happy with my first RR, this one is Heavy mining laser and flare launcher armed, I plan on another with the same loadout and another with a spotter and Missile Launcher.

As ever, thanks for looking.

I think that Primus is the bets model you have painted in this thread so far, well played.

Have made a bit more progress with my GSC, first up is a Ridgerunner armed with Missile Launcher and Spotter. No real conversion work other than the addition of a GSC symbol on the top hatch and a head swap for the spotter using a head from the Atalan Jackal kit:






And here is number 7 along with number 8:



I have also painted up a couple of Elite choices, first up is the Gunslinger of the Cult The Kelermorph. I absolutely love this sculpt, what a great miniature. I hope I did him justice:







I also painted up a Locus, this mini actually comes with 3 alternate heads, this was a bit of a shock to me as only 2 are pictured on the website. I decided to go with the third option as I thought it was the coolest:







And here they are together:



Thanks for looking.

Nice. Love the new array of GSC characters in that last release, and you've certainly done them justice here. Do you have plans for the officer guy with the holo-map?

Well it would be a shame to see the end of Conquest, as it is spurring me in to even start mine (20 odd issues just sat there..)
But on cancelling, I was planning the same, the free gifts end after the Redemptor issue anyway, and then I’ll just grab the Rhino one the month after..

I have also got a GSC Kill Team in the works, so it will also be good to see that anyway

Anyway, keep up the good work, it’s all looking awesome.
Thinking of doing a Primaris scheme, almost the opposite way round to the Celestial Lions,so that’s good to see. I like the gold look

Thanks for the replies guys, good motivational material.

@Paradigm: Yes, I have got the Nexos and plan on getting him painted up pretty soon. It is a cracking sculpt so aim to get on to him ASAP.

@Danny76: I actually cancelled this week, Issue 26 will be my last (apart from individual issues I plan to pick up such as the Primaris Apothecary and Chaplain). The paint brush set was a good final freebie, I also got two of issue 23 with the battlefield accessory sprues and missed out on the useless paint in issue 26, so I was happy. Good luck in getting yours started.

@YouWasShock: Do you mean the female Magus or the Jackal Alphus on bike? I have the biker but not the female Magus.

@Theophony: Just odd that they do not even picture it on the website. And thank you.

So GSC wise here is my army thus far:



And here is what I have left to paint:



Ideally I want to get some more troops painted up next, probably in the form of another Brood Brothers squad as they are pretty easy to knock out.

Conquest wise I have been on a construction kick the past few days.

First up are some Reivers modified with bits from the multi part sprue. I mainly swapped heads and mixed up the arms a little, but it should make them different enough from my other three that I got way back in issue 4 or 5:



I also got my Redemptor made up, my other Redemptor has the assault cannon so I used the plasma gun from the multi part kit with a few other additional bits:





Finally I made some modifications to Lord Felthius and the Tainted Cohort. I already have this set and 5 other Blightlords so decided to combine them all to make one squad armed with bileswords and another with Bligh axes (I think those names are right?). That is not possible with the multi part kit.

But first order of business? Replace THAT head on Felthius, I also changed his Manreaper head with one from the Deathshroud kit, it just looks more brutal:



I used various arms and pads from the multi part Blightlord kit to make the following:

Blightlord with sword and Reaper Autocannon, head from the CSM Rhino upgrade sprue:



Blightlord with axe and twin bolter:



Finally Blightlord with axe and combi melta, I think he is my favourite:



All told I have no idea what I will be painting next, but thank you for looking.

I really like the blue you're using on the vehicles, and your choices for conversions on the Death Guard are great too.

Conquest is a real boon for you British gamers. With we had something along those lines.

I love the style they gave the GSC, your doing an excellent job on them .

I meant the female Magus. Would love to see her included in your lineup. All the newly built stuff is quite cool.

The slow train of progress chuffs it way ever onwards. I am still working on my Genestealer Cult but really want to get finishing my Conquest stuff off and adding to my Celestial Lions as I am quite fond of my golden Primaris.

But first up is my Magus, I really love this sculpt. I am not quite sure if I did it justice but it is done for now:







I also got my unit of 5 Man Aberrants done. In game these are apparently close combat monsters. I went for a muted purple scheme for their skin and a kind of turqoise blue as a spot colour on the chitinous armour ro link it to the colour scheme of the rest of the army. I was initially reticent to paint these up but am generally happy with how they turned out:









Am currently halfway through painting another unit of Brood Brothers (basically GSC Traitor Guard) and the Clamavus.

As ever, thanks for looking.

The Death Guard are you best painted models, but I love GSC, so I am biased and prefer them!

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Justice done. Aberrants are looking beastly, too. More Primaris? Sounds good to me.

Cheers for the comments and support guys, I must admit that I have been rubbish at supporting everyone else on the P and M blogs recently. That will change!

My GSC continues to grow but I have also been sidetracked by a different project recently. I have done another Celestial Lion, but if I am honest he is not looking too well...what could it mean?







Certainly not a good one for him, may even be a bad 'un.

More soon.

The Warmaster has arrived. All told this has been one of my favourite ever miniatures to construct and paint. Simply put it was a delight. The paint job is far from perfect but this is probably as good as I will ever get. He can also serve in my Death Guard army so that is a bonus.

So here he is:











So there he is, comments and criticism is welcome.

Looks great , really like the coloring of the cloak.

The one thing that draws my attention right away is the face, which is great as that should be a focal point. It doesn’t look too sinister which I’m torn on. On one hand he should be just malevolent, but on the other it does a great job of remind in us that they were once human. Well done.
