Storm Trooper with Maglight







Decided my soldiers should have their bases marked with their rank marked, as it was getting hard to distinguish(I don't truck with an over-proliferation of melee weapons outside assault teams or irregulars), decided that sergeants and lieutenant was not over complicated and over thought enough so I have lance corporals, corporals, sergeants, master-sergeant, and a lieutenant(I have about a platoon and a half of riflemen).

Next step is to see who in my specialist teams, and special forces teams also deserves promotion.

Worked on turret exspansion on baneblade turret with putty. Worked on rheboks with putty, camo netting, a minor repair on my hellhound, on a whim I put a block of putty on the rear tank of the vehicle and pressed a magnet into it, will magnetise a sign with a Flammable Hazard sign and a Corrosion Hazard sign, to easily switch between Hellhound and Banewolf (becasue why have 2 different projector cannons when you can have one and a hazard sign) and sealed paper tarps on them with testors dull coat.

Painted a bit on my dismounted imperial knights. 5 power armoured knights with heavy melee weapons and heavy stub rifles(or battlerifles chambered in .50cal Browning machine gun for the layman), oh and 1x automatic grenade launcher.

Put together my cultist/zealot command section for my militia I got from anvil ages ago, anvil's bolt action rifles are a bit chubby for my liking, got some 3d printed ones that I like better.

Also more noteworthy; Cleaned the work area of my desk!

Started working on these. Been waiting since they got released.

Lots of skin tones to a) create realism b) reduce clone trooper effect

Damned gremlins....

Today I have to re-do work already done.
About a month back I picked up a box of Wargames Atlantics Medevial Irish. Spent considerable time trimming many many small fiddly spindly bits off sprues, mold lines, assembly....
They're nice enough figures once finished, I just found them a bit time intensive.

So then I decided to put them on 25mm round bases - mostly for stability on our tables. And discovered I didn't have enough bases. No problem, just order more bases.
Bases came about a week later.
And since then I have been looking everywhere for the small box of 30 assembled Irishmen. They're.... gone. Last Sat. I gave up & just ordered another box of them. I guess if the gremlins ever return the 1st batch then I'll have 60 Irish.

In the meantime I'll spend this evening trimming many many small spindly fiddly bits off spue, cleaning mold lines, & assembling 30 Irish - again.

Assembling my Cavalry dismount teams, arming them,(put together 2x marksman rifles for the teams and the usual modifications to the guns) and giving some of the female members slouch hats. Sorting a few parcels worth of bits into the meticulously ordered compartmentalised bits boxes. Light prepatory conversion work for some ongoing projects and Kangaroo no3 arrived so made a commander for that.

Building a pair of land speeders and a venerable dreadnought for a tournament. The land speeders are early, early plastic designs. The first doesn't even have a main weapon in the kit, but that's the beauty of magnets. I'll just slap on a assault cannon from a dreadnought.

Assembling some Howling Banshees, and a little bit of a review for those considering the kit...

Bit annoyed as they arrived this morning with a bashed box and the Exarch sprue was damaged. Thankfully the actual components are still useble but even still, its not on. But thats the delivery service fault( nothing to do with GW ). Certainly glad I didn't pay more than £25 for the kit as there just isn't enough plastic in the box to warrant it. Jain Zar is a bit pricey herself but at least has the argument that she is a less-common character model.

Looking at the Exarch sprue, there's about 70% pieces left over for a sixth banshee so I will be casting pieces 49, 44, 46 and 3 to get the most out of the kit. Parts 49 & 3 could be replaced with basic sculpting skill but 46 & 44( legs! ) are essential. An additional 25mm or 28.35mm base is required. These could've easily been included in the kit and cannot fathom why they chose that silly maker and "pigtails" helment instead. Its a shame one cannot use the left over Exarch weapons on ordinary banshees for Kill Team as it would make for a more customised team, and the Triskele is an odd weapon to include when it wasn't included in Kill Team...very strange that.

On a more positive note, I quite like the faces they provide and will go with them instead of whimping out on helmets! Gareth Nicholas' Exarch - a gift for Gaku Matsubayashi - is very inspiring and have been practicing the colours for the face.

Lots and lots of undercoating with my favourite colour black.

Until it dries. Sadly it loses that lovely wet look.

Sigh.
