Damn that's a glorious sight right enough. Is that the sniper from the Empire handgunners kit?

Sharp Dressed Men need Sharper Dressed Men to lead them!



I got a bunch of Vostroyans just to paint a while back. Some of the most John Blanchest miniatures ever made. The officer in particular is fantastic. No real use for 5 guys with eclectic weapons in the IG, so I figure it will be an Inquisitor and his buddies. Maybe he came out of the ranks of the military and took them along for the ride.



Commissars! Well technically one is a Valhallan Officer but close enough.



An Ordinance Officer (Mordian officer), a Fleet Officer (Mordheim vampire IIRC), Hero from the Last Chancers becomes an officer, with twin laspistols and a power sword he could count as Creed. Last dude is a Cadian with a head swap painted to match the Mordians. He was a place holder when I was 1 Mordian short.



Assorted madness. Cardinal wasshisname, 2 Necromunda psykers, and a Redemptionist converted to be a tech priest. The Cardinal is such a great, great model, also very John Blancey.

A lot of these are conversions from 10+ years ago, finally getting decent bases and maybe a chance at the tabletop.

Well spotted. It was a dead easy conversion, cut off the end of the lasgun and add the ginormous handgunner rifle.

This weekend's project is to finish the Cadian up-gunning.



For those playing along at home, when finished, this drop trooper army will have 13 squads, 4 command squads for a total of 150 guys in METAL

8 Flamers
4 volley guns
30 plasma guns
23 meltas



For the volley guns I reached into my box of Warzone heavy weapons. Sweet, sweet gattling guns. Ah the smell of a well-curated 20 + year old bits box.



Simple barrel swap with heavy bolter loaders.



The plasma guns required a bit more sawing and filing to get the old CSM Havok? No... the winged dudes, anyway it's their guns, they fit just right for a guardsman.

Then some plastic guns to finish them off.

Now some painting and this army is DONE. DONE DAMN IT. Done.

No, you are never done!
I'm jealous to see those WZ weapons, I never had the chance to buy them, and for 40K conversion work they are surprisingly convenient.

Well OK, but this 1/4 of my sprawling Inquisition-themed 2nd edition metal IG army will be done.

Done-ish.

Now trying to resist the temptation to pick up more Mordians.

They went really well with plastic catachans. I imagine there's an STL around somewhere that would do the same job. This job used up my supply of the long skinny ones, but I still have a stash of others, if needed.

An impressive army. Is that Lord Solar Macharius leading them?

No, of course not, don't be silly, Saint Macharius is dead centuries past.

It may however be a very, very good cosplayer.



WIP Lord Lunar Miles Glorious hailed as the greatest cosplayer of his age.

A truly epic model, but he's just... too skinny. Like the only way the armor can work is if he weighs 97 pounds. Or, alternately, it's made of spandex. If it was a digital model I'd stretch it like 10%.

So yeah, he'll end up commanding my Drop Troop force, which means the former leader Sky Master Soon gets demoted to #2. Waste of a good Guys and Dolls joke but I gain a Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum joke so there's that.

Got my Battlezone Fronteris kits and they are darn good. Not great, but certainly darn good.

Started with bunker and walls box.



29" stretched out, so 2 or 3 boxes to have a table sized great wall.

Assembly takes literally minutes, most of that is filing the unexpectedly large number of tabs on the sprue. My one frustration is you only get 6 shutters for 10 open windows (and one window is partly blocked by the pipe so you have to trim a shutter to fit). So my secure safe bunker is left with 4 wide open windows

There are other minor faults but that's the one that bugged me.



Windows are a bit high but even my 2nd edition guard can see out of them so good enough.



And flipped upside down the bunker can hold all the walls it comes with!

I'll be doing more with these but those are my initial thoughts.

Pretty massive just in one kit, and you have multiples- well done! I like the 'Castle of Iron' look to them, and a Great Wall, what a great gaming table. The Mordians in your force go right along with them.

Some odds and sods.

Got my 2 Lightyear Armadillo shuttles from Target (they seem to be an exclusive)



More 15mm scale but easy to fudge. They're a bit bigger than a Rhino/Chimera and taller but will look fine on a table. No weapons, just a boxy shuttle for evacs or rescues.



Making a sharp dressed Eversore for the Mordians. Not sure if I should replace his fleshy head with a skull wearing a peak cap. Any thoughts?



And got some Starship doors from Mantic.



They're meant to be free standing but if you cut off the lip you can attach them to a building or vehicle. Good little buy to have around for projects.

Those Armadillo landers look a bit like the assault landing craft in the movie version of Starship Troopers, they will absolutely work as evac and dust-off vehicles.

_Love_ the kitbash figure- all the additions blend naturally to make a new composite whole.

I'll have to look in on those Mantic starship doors- always nice to have extra bits around when you need them!

Rock on.

Finally went with the skull head and cap.

I would have said definitely go for the skull and cap and I'm glad you did. Looks bloody excellent.
