Those are great figure sets and the diorama set=piece with the transport unit is aces- really nicely done!

Kinda speechless. The quality of builds and painting is 10/10.

You also have me regretting using the included Eisenkern weapons on my guys. Now I want to change them all out for Anvil guns like you have. Damn man. Great job.

You play this as a 40k army? Hard to imagine what some of this stuff proxies for.

Welcome and thank you very much SickSix, I still think there is room for improvement but I am happy you like the style.
Yes the original Eisenkern weapons are awful design flaw in my eyes, everything ells is so perfectly executed but the infantry weapons... eh no!
I do not play at them moment and have never played 40k since 3rd edition. But you can proxy it for nearly anything you like.

Need a tank with a rocket launcher take the HMARS
Need a drop ship take the "Black Dragon"
Need a Knight sized Walker use "Dragons Fury"

I mean the possibilities are endless once the whole rifle company and-ons are finished, that's the beauty of not being dependant on a gaming system.

Beautiful doggies, looks like you got the same colour effect I did, but your painting is much better!

Love the K9 vehicle and the unit as a whole is simpily awesome. Are you planning to colour them all as shepards? I mean it would go with the army's theme.

But I'm just saying I painted one of mine up like a dingo, and it has a prosthetic leg(that snarling one you put in the back of the jeep)(yeah, see dropped and accidentally ground into the concrete and had to be replaced with wire and putty!) And it is pretty cool.

Handlers match them stance wise, and individual colourarion on the dogs is really nice to see. Real cool.

Also did I hear somewhere here you had dreamforge Valkirs?

You'd think tanks would squash infantry in the melee...

Thanks OldMate, well you did have the idea and this is the beauty they were based off of.

Well I only have 4 so yes the unit is already completely painted as German Shepard's:
Rex with handler
Prince with handler
Duke and Baron on vehicle

"I'm just saying I painted one of mine up like a dingo" well that figures coming form AUS Would like to see a picture if you do not mind?

Yes I found it important to get the handlers positions to match the dogs motions, so they work as a unit

That is correct I have a large unit of "Valkirs" which I was first going to use as the first platoon but I changed my mind and they will be an individual unit at some point. I have already done a few conversions and a few test runs with different heavy weapons which have turned out pretty good.

With the Valkirs I think you could have an excellent opportunity to demonstrate how you imagine they work in conjunction with other units, with mixed unit tactics.

Such as using them as cover and firesupport(the same way you take cover behind a tank) when moving across more open ground.

Or perhaps by using other units to tag targets for indirect fire(firing auto cannons through walls etc).

Also another idea Valkir pattern hand grenades, because if you can carry a bigger gun you can throw a bigger bomb!

You'd think tanks would squash infantry in the melee...
