The plasma gunners there have come out really well, Captain - I wonder if they're aware how quickly they'll be killed by their own weapons...

Thanks Dysartes,

This is 8th edition...the Plasma edition as you can fire without overheating if you so chose...which means just about everyone still fires with an overcharge to do more damage.

So for this month's Unofficial Painting Challenge I am going to do another Command Section and a Junior Officer.

Nice report, lots of pics! Victory for the guard! Just bought some plasma guns myself. Definitely like them in 8th.

Thanks stonned_astartes,

So here are some of the conversions.


Made from some styrene strips, a VOX pack and part of the hose from the Flamer. To make them look like the metal ones I have.


Using Catachan hands to make them larger than normal as I will add some green stuff to make then into padded gloves.

You can see the Green Stuff (well it is white for the epoxy putty I use) to make it look like the Plasma gunners are wearing the protective gloves.

Note to self, next time drill the hole in the bottom of the Plasma Gun prior to gluing it to the figure mounted on the base...no room to get the pin vice drill in.

Capt. Brown, this is more great stuff, as expected from you. Nice painting, flavorful conversions, good basing, excellent banners, and so much character in this army. I love your stuff. Your Elysian Drop Troops blog over on Warseer was my biggest inspiration when starting my own Drop Troop army and I am just getting their blog going here on Dakka. Keep up the awesome work!

Thanks Camkierhi,

Now it is time for the closing acts...I only have just over a dozen models left to paint for my Imperial Guard.

Six Guardsmen in this lot.


I am planning on painting these and the six other infantry models followed by the Valkyrie to finish the army off.

Thanks guys.

Finished the six more Necromundian Guardsmen. Three with flamers and one with a VOX.







All with their gang patches, Regimental Number and different heads than the regular box set. One reason I have been doing so many Special Weapons lately is that with the Conscript becoming as expensive as a regular Guardsmen I will just use them to fill the ranks and build an extra platoon or two.

Looking good! And your photography is very nice with the bright lighting and the contrasting blue background. It works quite well.

These are fantastic. Never really liked grey as a camo scheme but those troops are very cool my friend.
Shows just what a simple step like a head swap can do to make a force look different. Plus the quality of your work over different projects is great.

Ps I had the white dwarf with the art work of the guard regiment years ago, was actually one of the pieces of art that pulled me in to the warhammer universe. Now i must be a lot older than i realise. Lol.

The last five (well four plus the lad above) Guardsmen without should pads. Not as detailed as my last for groups, but then these were the last five Conscripts I have had sitting around for years and just could never get the mojo to paint finish them...until now.




Next up is the last Sergeant and an end to my infantry forces.

"Next up is the last Sergeant and an end to my infantry forces. “

End? There is no end. You’ve been around long enough to know better. The painting war is a war without end...

Nice to see the troopers marching across the bench in good order though.

Late to the party but these are very cool. Good job on the painting and the general aesthetic. Did you trim the Cadian shoulder pads of that last batch, I considered doing it for a project but thought it would be to much work, did it take you long?

Too true...in fact my entry in this post is a combination of the Guardsmen I have painted for the Painting Challenge combined with those completed and not entered as they did not fit the theme of the month.

Tank_Dweller wrote:Late to the party but these are very cool. Good job on the painting and the general aesthetic. Did you trim the Cadian shoulder pads of that last batch, I considered doing it for a project but thought it would be to much work, did it take you long?

Thanks Tank_Dweller, I did, in fact I think there is a tutorial on how I did it some pages back. I did it for 40 models that I was using as Conscripts, although now they are sprinkled in other squads as juve members of the Spiders.

As noted I have finished the last Sergeant. So that is all the remaining infantry for the 8th painted.



Now when I collect all the models I have painted for this army in the last two years for the Monthly Painting Challenge, plus this 10 I have done in between my batches of 5 models.


If I take out one Flamer model and one of the regular trooper and add an old Officer I have this force:


Which makes a tidy little Guard force - Officer, Commissar, Command Section, Veteran Squad, two Infantry Squads and one heavy weapons squad.

That grey cloth is looking really good - the overall scheme with the bases is highly striking and effective.

I agree with Kestral: the shading and layering on the grey cloth is very nice. And the models have enough contrast to define individual detail in large squads, which keeps them from blending together into a blob when you have large platoons. And everyone having the regimental number on the shoulder pads is a nice touch.

I also like the bits of characterful detail you have, such as the plasma gunners (unlike the other special and heavy weapons troopers) are all wearing gloves, presumably because of their weapons' propensity for overheating! I love those kind of modeling and painting details that cater to the background information and rules.
