Thanks IGtR=,

So the deciding turn had arrived, while we were very close in VPs at this point due to the cards drawn and the numbers rolled for variable VP points, the Imperial Fists were down to a much smaller force. With their Captain heroically attempting to pin down the Guard and reduce units with his Relic Sword.


The Chimera having left the Ogryn brute squad behind closed to inflict fire on the Devastators.


The Ogryn's closed in to help the Conscripts who were losing more troopers to morale than the Marine's sword.


The brute squad of Ogryns turned the tide and the Marine Captain fell in close combat.

This sealed the Imperial Fist's fate as their last Tactical Squad was destroyed by Guard fire and they held no objectives to the Guard holding four and collecting enough Victory points for a win.

Cheers,

Good luck with your army. Just paint two at a time and before you know it you will have a squad, then another squad and so a company.

Thanks stonned_astartes and Camkierhi,

After over a year and then some I have started painting five Guardsmen for this month's painting challenge.

Work in progress:



Finally doing a command section for the Third Platoon with Standard, Vox and Medic. I got some enthusiasm back with the "Chain of Command" challenge...which a Guard Command Squad is a perfect example. Also going to replace the Junior Officer I have leading the Third Platoon to one with a Bolter as the Power Sword and Bolt Pistol has not been very effective. As if I am in hand to hand I am pretty well dead already. Even though they are Veterans, I have painted a Trooper with a Lasgun rather than a special weapon to show the chain of command up to the Office.

The long painting war continues...

You're in B.C. then, eh? What's the climate like for painting out there? I'm advised the weather is quite... English compared to Ontario.

Thanks Excommunicatus,

It can be a little wet out here.

As for the heads, I will use this latest WIP shot.

From left to right looking at the photo: Berlin or Bust (West Wind Productions), GW Medic head, GW Cadian Sergeant head with GS cap, Berlin or Bust (West Wind Productions), FW Veteran head with GS cap.
The GS caps are made with two part putty. If you look back on my conversions you should see dozens of them.

Here is my Necromundian Guard Junior Officer and Command Section that I finished for the Dakka (Unofficial) Painting Challenge Round 45 November 2018: Chain of Command






Trooper Haskel on the left, while a Veteran is junior to Specialist Surach (Medic), who is junior to Corporal Vortagen (VOX Operator), who is junior to Colour Sergeant Kussax, who is junior to Lieutenant Kurssach.
All are patch members (on the right forearms of their uniforms) of the "Spiders" Clan from Hive Palantine of the planet Necromunda. The Clan that traditionally provides the personnel for the 8th Regiment with each raising of troops for the Imperial tithe. As veterans there are a fair number of extra weapons, including several side arms. Due to their role as supporting Lieutenant Kussach, many are wearing the soft cap rather than their helmets they would wear at the front line. Each trooper has the "8" of their regimental number and the skull motif for the battle honours for the Battle of Deucalion that wiped out a previous raising of the Regiment on the planet Deucalion.

Cheers,

CB

Great looking entry to the painting challenge, really like the browns used, really breaks up the grey and black of the armour and fatigues.

Given you say "some progress", would that imply there's mortar do there?

Dysartes, you made me chuckle with that one!

Mortar teams looking good, have you used a different colour of static grass or is it just the lighting?

Thanks Dysartes.

Looks like my response to the pun passed Tyranid Horde in flight. Yes the static grass is two colours blended together in some applications, and light brown in some others.

Thank you Nevelon, yes, if you look at the army shots I think I can cover a 4x4 foot table completely now.

Thanks Midget Gems and IGtR=

OK,

Finished the three mortar teams.

Converted five of the six models as I was never happy with the default pose for the trooper with the round.

In the aerial view you can see the extra mortar shells ready to be grabbed, I always thought the kit was a little short of parts.







Now these are imgur images, the ones I uploaded to the gallery seemed to want to flip the top down views horizontally.

Next up are some models for this months Painting Challenge.

Still debating if I want the Commissar or an Officer to lead the Command Section 'Forlorn Hope'.

That is a nice Commissar sculpt, but I do prefer the Steel Legion version of him, with the gas mask.

Still, looking good, Captain.

Thanks Dysartes,

My Command Section as a Breaching squad and a Commissar to make certain they succeed.







The Plasma Gun backpacks are scratch built to look like the metal Plasma Gun models, and every model is converted in some way with the exception of the Commissar. I am very happy with the Commissar's trench coat that shines like leather despite being covered with a Matt varnish. All the "Spiders" have their gang patches on their right sleeves.

Great breached team! Can’t believe how big the Comissars hat is, plenty of empty hat for the enemy to shoot at I suppose! The gang badge is a really cool idea to give them an identity in the mass of (painted) grey. Keep winning the painting battles!
