I have started another one... for the same competition...



This one will be a standard trooper with a rifle of some description.

This is mind boggling. I can't even sculpt a bloody helmet. Love the character to these little guys, that last one perfectly fits the avuncular, eccentric British colonel type....

HOW do you do this??? I suspect a deal with dark forces....

Cheers ... The answer is "lots of practice". I've been sculpting (on and off) for over 30 years and I still call myself an amateur.

A bit more progress:

Another distraction ... This is the first of many and is a conversion of an "Avatars of War - Dwarf Seeker":



He is still WIP because I am waiting for my Anvil Industry order to arrive so that I can finish it . I plan to convert the whole box so there will be 20 of these (when I eventually finish them) :0 ...

They should fit in well (size wise) with the rest of my army:

Your sculpting work is continually impressive... have you done any videos or tutorials on the process? I love seeing the step-by-step... I always get too impatient and screw up something that hasn't set yet, but I also struggle to "see" the finished product when all I've got is a rough armature. Thanks for sharing all this great detail... your photography, btw, is no slouch either!

Thank you

No tutorials, I'm sorry to say. I don't have the time or patience for it.

I rarely have a finished miniature in mind when I start a sculpt (unless I have to)... normally, I just go with the flow and see where it takes me .

The second one... now with added back-pack :

Back to a previous unit and I have finished the shotgun veterans:



I have now started on the Primaris Psyker (Jedi Beastman) for the third infantry platoon:

The Beastman Jedi is getting there now... Just the head and arms to go :



I've also dug out the command squad and platoon commander, ready for them to get their arms as well .

In yet another dramatic turn of events, I decided to do a little bit of reorganising and have trimmed down a Battalion in to a Vanguard Detachment.

That meant that instead of needing to convert 10 terminators, 5 scouts and 6 scout bikers, all I needed to do was convert 1 terminator Sgt (for 2 squads of 5 terminators, instead of 2 squads of 10) and 1 scout biker sgt (for 2 squads of 3 rather than 6). It also meant that I could shed the scout squad because the choice wasn't mandatory any more ...

... With that in mind, I have already converted the Terminator Sgt and now have 2 squads of 5 Terminators. In the image below, each squad is accompanied by a terminator captain:



The terminators will be Squats in Exo Armour .

As an aside, I have now started to convert the scout biker sgt and he should be ready by the weekend (Squat Hearthguard Bikers).

Awesome squats as ever inso. Will the first sgt be getting more of a beard? He looks a bit fresh faced for a veteran warrior. That said I always imagined dwarfs/squats as being able to buy status

If you're talking about the termi with the stormshield, I'm pretty sure she's female Which doesn't invalidate your comment, she may well need more facial hair, she is a space dwarf afterall!

Loads of great work Inso, inspiring how long you've worked on this project yet keep making new concepts and minis. Particularly excited by the new jedi beast, always dug your previous one(s?)

Thank you for your kind words .

The Terminator with the hammer/shield is a woman and will not be getting a beard (I don't agree with the "female Dwarfs should have beards" stance... sorry). The male captain has a large beard but it is tucked into his armour.

The Beastman will be getting a bit more love now because...

The Vanguard Detachment is now complete . I have finished converting the Sgt Scout Biker (Hearthguard Biker) so I now have two little bike squads:



The Vanguard Detachment consists of:

Terminator Captain (Exo Armoured Squat Lord)
Terminator Captain (Exo Armoured Squat Lord)
Terminator Squad (5) (5 Squats in Exo Armour)
Terminator Squad (5) (5 Squats in Exo Armour)
Scout Squad (5) (5 Squat Hearthguards)
Scout Squad (5) (5 Squat Hearthguards)
Scout Biker Squad (3) (3 Squat Hearthguard Bikers)
Scout Biker Squad (3) (3 Squat Hearthguard Bikers)
Centurion Squad (3) (3 Squats in Repurposed Mining Suit)
Centurion Squad (3) (3 Squats in Repurposed Mining Suit)
Dreadnought (1) (Squat Dreadnought)
Dreadnought (1) (Squat Dreadnought)

Now all I need to do is paint everything .

I still have all of the miniatures to convert for the original Battalion but I can do that 'as and when' now... this exercise ticks two boxes: 1. I have a finished detachment and 2. I am free to continue with the last of the infantry platoons.

The end is in sight...
