Progress... whoda thunk it.

Mojo is creeping back in after mid-month doldrums. The schemes didn't 1uite work as I had envisaged and a week of holiday away followed by family illness just combined to kill enthusiasm. Thankfully I have the spectre of the painting comp to push me onward. So some progress to the point that I'm actually getting happy with the results. Funny how a bit of highlighting and a couple of washes can make you so much happier with a scheme

Anyway. Some pics.



Grungy base



Going to try and hit the blue bits with my new harder and Steinbeck airbrush for a trial of spray based OSL.



This green turned out a bit shiny, but its growing on.me.


Just seen that the barrel needs touched up a bit, but otherwise I'm happy.

And the first 4 Vortices are done and final pics posted for the painting comp for Feb.

Tried out some OSL using my new airbrush, to mixed success. I'll keep trying I think it just about worked on the heavy's face but I couldn't quite get a decent gradient on the other bits.

They haven't come out quite as I had intended, so there is that lingering sense of disapointment that ny skills cant replicate my inagibation. However i do think they are passable at least and fit to face down Graphite's Press Gang. Moving back to BSF for a bit, so ill have time to ponder schemes for the next few guys. Something virulent in orange I'm thinking

Scotland, but nowhere near my rulebook

That is looking absolutely gorgeous.

Also - bit of a plug - their current opposition, The Press Gang can be seen here since I finally took some halfway decent photos.

W00t. So I managed to get a cheap second hand land speeder storm.

Lookit!






And we those legs? Why yes they are

I thought my container hauled needed a leggy escort friend

Land speeder truck conversion is looking really good. I will be watching to see how it turns out.

Thanks Rids.

Just finished putting it all together. The legs are still loose, but I'll fiddle around a bit more for posing before gluing them in place.



The HB moves and can be removed


Being modelled by my beautiful assistant Vortices. I deliberately connected the legs quite far back as I reckon counterbalancing a couple of pilots is easier than whatever heavy-ish load they might want on the rear platform.



I think they probably get through quite a few of those front sensor units



And escorting my cargo hauler






I've got enough legs for one more of these things. Just waiting for my super cheap Conquest land speeders to arrive for one more little leggy friend, in a light scout format rather than load hauling

Thinking that the legs will be more centralised beneath the pilot in the last one to keep the pilot and gunner more steady in the centre of movement. I think the cargo versions might not give the smoothest of rides

That looks really good!

You inspire me to mod a landspeeder into some sort of floating platform for my ancient genestealer patriarch on a throne...

Love that Landspeeder mod! It's a great prop, but it feels like it needs some game stats... I'd drive that thing into battle in a pinch. Very much looking forward to paint... what's that yellow you're using?

Thanks guys. Always nice to see people interested in my footling.

@Mellon - go for it. The land speeder model is so versatile. I also made a recon buggy thingy put of the back end of one and a falcon turret





@ Mcphail - a very small chimera perhaps it's been mentioned that Necromunda night get ash waste vehicle rules at some point, so I'll just keep it safe until thise days arrive

The yellow is either sunburst yellow or flash glitz yellow. I think the former one, but I 5hi k the latter is just the modern replacement anyway. Not quite the same but close enough. I used it for my other utility walker, Jekub


I might have a leg problem...

All of these vehicle conversions look great (cargo hauler, buggy, and Jekub). The fork lift attachment on the front of Jekub in particular looks very natural, like it is a real kit. What is it made from?

Also, the weathering looks good on that yellow paint job.

Thanks Rids. The hydraulic bits are from the ork dreadnought arms... or maybe it was the killa Kan arms. I forget. The prongs are just trimmed down sprue.

Nice vehicle conversion, especially the Falcon buggy. It's sleekness is very Van Saar.

Thanks Sock. Although the buggy was done as a Hellion attack bike counts as for my Starcraft themed Deathwing/Ravenwing force. It was also a fun build (and i should paint the poor thing at some point)

I really like those utility vehicles. Jekub is my favorite, I'm getting the "power loader from Alien" vibes from it. To me it also fits the 40k universe perfectly.
