Maybe write "the big guns never tire" somewhere on it. That's one of their sayings. I know you could find an easy way of making tank tracks across the board that looked good. Even using the impressions from the tanks themselves as they have the Aquila and Skulls on the tracks. A large shell would be a decent symbol as well.

I'll go take a pic of some old Imperial guard decal shetts if that helps.

Thanks guys, still not 100% 0n what to go for, but leaning to maybe skulls.

Here is a quick couple pics, started the main colouring tonight, some marble effect, really wish I was channeling Januine right now.





Thanks for looking, and still open to suggestions, thank you so much for the ideas so far.

Before reading the text I was like Brilliant, he's using vinyl marble look floor tile for the base. So no worries about not channeling Januine.

I'm sure Jan will be proud, it's a nice marble effect. I think large numbering also looks good as a generic IG wall decoration.

Marble looks effective from here. Good work.

Not being Imperial-aligned I can't help much on iconography.

Thanks everyone, really appreciate the feedback.

@ Vik, the vast majority of my work is freehand so yes they are freehand scratched into the surface, I did do a rough sketch and used it as a reference, doing similar to a dot to dot, to make sure they come in at roughly the right size.

OK, New project....


Going to leave it at that for a sec. I won the biggest part of this many years ago in an LoER comp, and have never dared to use it, but it is about time and I feel confident enough to try.

Oh and anyone who wants the finished article let me know, no way I am letting it sit on a shelf.

Must get that sale blog going, if you fancy my Dakka jet talk to me. Or any of my previous trucks.

OK, here is the secret bit, that should be enough for Gits to get bored and look away. Not the best pic in the world deliberately.


Can't decide on edging, and have decided to do some skulls in each corner, waiting on the last coat of varnish to dry. So far this has had 17 layers of paint on it.

OK thanks for looking, hope to get a bit done today. Laters dudes and dudettes.

Great stuff - I too thought it was floor tile at first. Using wire harnesses for wall cabling is also brilliant. As for symbols, scrollwork is also very imperial. Gryphons, hourglasses, all that gothic stuff.

Thanks all,

@ Theo, indeed. Though I think I will just build it for now.
@ Kestral, Thank you bud.
@ Dave, no afraid not, (see below)

OK did two of these in a quick sit down yesterday, they are only the basic skeleton, going to add lots of detail. Getting lots of inspiration around Dakka, Blackadder's Warmonger is epic.



And Dave this is the bit of kit I have to try and live up to. hk1x1 sent this several years ago. Just hope I can do it justice.


Well thanks for looking, c&c welcome and encouraged.

Thank you guys.

Please bear in mind the body and head are epic work by hk1x1, a true master, I am nervously trying to emulate.

Bit more...


Now working on this for the weekend, been finishing up that display board, got some help from my daughter Shinigami-Ren, took pity on my indecision and started on two of the corners, so I have done the other two this morning.

OK spoilered in case Gits loiters around here.
Spoiler:



And some of the details..

The two corners Shinigami-Ren did first..



Then my lame efforts...



And a pic of the metalwork..


Still need to decide what is going around the outside edge.


Well thanks for looking and the comments are greatly appreciated, really help me out and keep me going.

Beautiful work , do t sell your skulls short, they remind me of a lot of the older GW skulls. Nice feel of nostalgia with them.

How about painting the trim as D6s. You could vary the pips on them all around the board?

of course you said us before that your daughter made these two pictures...but with that knowledge one can see you two have different approaches on art...other influences...yours is classic GW influence... and i suppose for Shinigami-Ren is more eastern oriented...manga etc...the way she does skulls... they appear ghost like...i wouldn´t be able to tell which one is better...as i like both artful approaches...and they both exceed my own feeble attempts by a zillion degrees...

and i like theo´s idea about the D6´s ...that might be really cool and classy looking...so... fitting for the whole board then

Thanks peeps,

@ Dave, Thank you sir.
@ Theo, Thanks bud and really great idea, will go with it I think. Watch this space tomorrow.
@ Vik, Thanks bud, don't knock your work, it has been inspirational to me. She is incredibly talented, keep saying and trying to push her to get to grips with models, but to be honest, she is probably way better than that.

OK added some armoured toe nails, these are not fixed on as I want to add cabling and tubes and stuff under them and paint under them also.


I am afraid I might drift off the true design a little. But trying to keep it close, so somebody will want it when I am finished.

Thank you for looking, c&c most welcome.

From what I can see it looks a bit sneeker like where the soles are concerned...which is more modern looking and thus a bit fresher, not that strikt gothic...maybe this will leave an old impact on the whole build...

Thanks Vik, and I agree, might have to knock it back a little, though this is the square version, Lucious pattern I think, though I am no buff on that. See a fair few with the rounded carapace and greaves. Not going that route.

Did a little more, posting this in small increments hoping to get a little feedback on how far off I am. Also should anyone want to know how I do things.

Leg parts.


And loosely positioned.



This is putting the hip at a max of 150mm (6") which as far as I can tell is about right.

Thanks for looking.

Thank you all,

@ Dave stalled abit this week, but getting there, thank you.
@ Vik LOL
@ Einibbus, Thank you sir.
@ Yorkright, Please have a great vacation, (heard of this concept, never had one!) Thank you for the comment though.
@ Graven, Thanks bud.
@ Shas, Well I try and keep it interesting.
@ Josh, Thank you sir.

Well OK not had much time lately, but started to get a little time on tonight and did some work on couple things.

Edging, (thanks Theo for the idea).....


Can't decide what colour to go with, got a bone thing going on at mo, but needs something.

Needed some parts ...so a dig through the bits, and found some lids...

I think they make a nice hip assembly...






And a quick mock up...


Of course there are tons of details to add yet, but thoughts would be appreciated.
