So I spent last night @ work working on somthing... not workish :-P

Lack of sleep, excessive amounts of caffeine, a Chapterhouse Skull helmet, liberal use of the bitz box, and my mystery part, a gear from a broken printer...and copious quantities of superglue fumes later.

Behold.

Yep.

The worst part was the inside of the gear was solid plastic. So I had to hollow it out. Used a pin vise to drill out holes around the perimiter, then a hobby knife and a file to clear it out.

I can upload pics tomorrow. They are just the standard IH thunder hammers that come in the box set.

My MOTF is a while off. Going to have to get some GS and plasticard first. I'm going to replace the one really clunky Servo arm with something a bit more combat oriented (Think IW Warsmith arm) I'll prob do a few Honor Gaurd Artificer Armour marines first for practice first.

I'm half thinking about seeing if I can pay someone to sculpt me a few artificer armour torsos and legs.

Those are all the Metal IH bits from the IH box. I've already used a good # of them for my tactical, Sternguard and Dev marines.

Hopefully tonight I can get the 3 tac marines needed to finish my 1st 10 Man tac squad. (2 Bolters and a SGT) done.

Wait, a full, legal troops choice? WHUT?

10 Man Tactical squad, pretty close to TT ready. Some touchup and basing needed.







And a Company Champion that I have about 75% done.






Continuing with the theme that most of the Veterans and Command Staff of the chapter have served with the DeathWatch hunting Necrons.

Try a dark wash on the deathwatch pads, it makes the letters pop out a bit more.

First off, apologies for not having been back sooner.

And then... wow! You've been really busy! The Chaplin is amazing! The conversion on the Crozius is inspired and very well done. The Company Champion is well done too. It's obvious that you've been putting more time into this project.

Yeah, this weekend was kind to me as work was quiet. I imagine that things will slow down a bit. I do want to get another tactical squad out of the way, so at least I'll have the semblance of a playable army.

Looking @ the Stormraven kit, I'm hoping that there are enough people who dont like the turret that the swap shop will have a few available. Looks like it might make a nice RB turret.

Your pictures lighting is really harsh. I think it is washing out many of the delectable details you are putting in and giving the models an unnatural shine. Try and diffuse the light, through a this piece of paper or reflect the light of another surface.

Thats from the flash of the camera... I'm using a small digicam, and if I don't use the flash, well.. then the pics aren't well lit enough. My photographic skills are definately just a WIP as my army

WOW! Great work, I love the weapons. Tho for some one soo busy where do you find the time? You done so much so fast. I've been working on Gits' model for almost 6 months now!

I cant wait to destroy and scavenge your army, ha ha!

12 hour night shifts are a bonus point. Quiet enough that I can get some 'work' done....after about the first hour of paperwork it gets pretty boring.
I have all my bitz in a portable box, and I generally have a Rhino-sized box full of tools, and stuff on sprue to work with. Although I traded my last Rhino box, and had to use the AOBR box, which didnt work as well as it doesnt fit in my backpack well.

I'm going to be gunning for having at least a 1000 point force ready for 3 weeks from now.

I might even be able to get that up to 1500ish.

(Stuff on hand to paint: 2 Dreads, Predator, Whirly, Rhino, Razorback(TLLC), along with a whack of marines.)

Stuff on the way in trade: Vindy, Rhino, 5 scouts, Techmarine/Servo Harness....and various bitz/shoulderpads on order/incoming from trades.

You might try taping a couple of layers of wax paper over your flash, it acts as a pretty good diffuser without decreasing the light output too much.

I learned a few tricks before I got my light box. Actually with my camera the opaque lid to a can of dullcoat fits perfectly over the flash and makes a great diffuser!
