I really like the Chimera conversion, looking nice and real worldy.

I hope it's not too much of a threadjack but here are some of your Ratlings finished..



I can delete the pic if it's not appropriate just let me know. I enjoyed doing these a lot, great sculpts. Furher pics on my Blog if you want to see more.

I hate squats but this is awesome! Love it

Let no man glory in the greatness of his mind,
but rather keep watch o'er his wits.
Cautious and silent let him enter a dwelling;
to the heedful comes seldom harm,
for none can find a more faithful friend
than the wealth of mother wit.

I am glad that i managed to get the Chimera proxy how I wanted it... and that people actually agree with my choice of direction for it . I really wanted it to fit in with the rest of the armour and (in my opinion) it does .

So... Onward and upwards...

The company command tank has stopped. I can't even look at it for now... every time I mix putty, I can't bring myself to use it so it gets wasted. With that in mind, I felt that I needed something to keep things ticking over and I suddenly realised that I had the perfect thing... my Spearhead Detachment.

My Spearhead detachment consists of the following things:

HQ - Tank commander.
Elite - Engineseer and servitors in a Chimera transport.
Heavy Support - 3 tanks (battle-cannon).
Heavy Support - 3 tanks (punisher cannon).
Heavy Support - 3 tanks (plasma cannon).

Seeing as I already have most of the list finished, I just need to finish the Engineseer unit and the tank commander... seeing as I can't work on the tank commander, I have dug out the Engineseer and servitors to work on:

Before:



For work in progress, I will refer you to the relevant blog page:

http://insosworld.blogspot.com/2018/07/water-from-sky.html

It would appear that I have finally started to paint a few miniatures again...

So... now I am painting things, I thought I'd give some Halflings a go:



I decided to follow Randy McStab's example and paint small areas of different coloured leaves on the Ghilly suits... hopefully, it shows up .

These are attached to the first Infantry platoon so I have dug out the command elements to paint... namely a Primaris Psyker (Jedi Beastman), Platoon Commander and Command Squad.

I have just primed the troops and have started to paint the Psyker (because he was already started).

This painting push will be to try and complete the whole platoon; which consists of:

Primaris Psyker.
Platoon Commander.
Command Squad.
Infantry Squad.
Infantry Squad.
Heavy Weapon Squad.
Armoured Sentinel Sqn (3 walkers).
Chimeras (4 vehicles).

The good thing is that the troops have a lot of colours on them so they will be entertaining to paint . Hopefully, I'll be able to get the platoon done (I may stall on the Chimeras because they haven't been converted yet... the rest is all ready for paint).

They look great, I think that it helps to break up their silhouette and makes them look less homogeneous.

I look forward to seeing your infantry squads too, I like that green hold colours and painted my ancient Epic Squat army that way.

Cheers . I saw your snipers and they looked really effective so I followed your approach and it has worked out nicely .

I have a mix of greens for the army but the Dark Angels green will be for my 'marine' proxies and special units... I have a plan !

This week, after finishing the Snipers, I got on with painting the Primaris Psyker for the first platoon:



I've also started painting the Platoon Commander and his Command Squad. They are still WIP but there is a pic over at the blog:

http://insosworld.blogspot.com/2018/08/the-dwarfs-are-on-their-way.html

I've got a little further now... they have been washed and are ready for the highlighting now .

Snipers looking good, and the beastman shaman is great, that is a fun sculpt you produced there.

Love this stuff- the tanks nicely round out your army, the tank commanders are particularly great, but the Engineseer and his bots really take the prize. Amazing little set of figures.

I am glad to be painting these... after four years of work on the army, it was about time some of the troops saw some paint .

I have a second infantry squad at the 'base-coated before tidy-up' stage and have just finished a sidekick for Chuck... I think I'll call him Bruce Leaf...





The army still has a long way to go, with lots of conversions/scratch-builds to be done... For starters I need to convert 13 more Chimeras, 10 veterans, 3 Sentinels,31 troopers, 1 Primaris Psyker, 20 Scouts, 10 Terminators, six Landspeeder Storms, a bunch of jungle characters, Schaefer... the list is still long... probably another 4 years yet !

I also have plans for an Adeptus Mechanicus detachment with a Titan of some description... so that will be fun (including some characters and elites).

Then... there's the air force...
