Ahh thanks guys.

Yeah I much prefer the SM HKs, they seem more realistic or something. I really don't like the new 'rocket on a stick' ones. Yeah I'll try to photograph my armour today, only 2 of the Russ are painted mind.

Yes I like the flexibility magnatised weapons gives you. I have a 2nd un painted sentinal which will get a heavier spread LC, AC and ML. I plan to convert the ML from half of a terminator cyclone I have spare, I much prefer it to the long box assembly they come with.

You've got a really characterful bunch of guardsmen. I like that they're so closely tied to the marines like that. I actually have a chapter of marines whose fluff I've been working on in my head that work closely with the guard, as well as with the ad mech.

Thanks I was aimimg for character over most other concerns (like tabletop effectiveness!). I really like the idea of inter-connectedness of imperial armies and really look forward to fielding both my Marines and Guard at the same time. I'll do a blog for my marines when I get my IG to a good place. I really like your scratch builds, reminiscent of Brian Froud's stuff. And who doesn't like Labyrinth?

Here's 'Old Reliable', a knackered old museum piece of a Russ. You can see where the sponsons were removed, I like the damage the ploy has done to the surface and made no attempts to hide or clean it. Makes it look as though it's been down gunned and maybe mothballed somewhere only to be pressed into service as a stop gap 200 years ago or something.





The G.R. and scythe is a reference to the squadrons name. Yes it does say war on the side, why? just because.



Unofficial unit motto.



Spare track has been welded over damage.

This was my first vehicle for this army and I was pleased with the basic look, a bit of a proof of concept type thing. It was actually quite quick to do as the techniques are basically limited to drybrushing. I wanted to keep to the quick and easy ideal for the vehicles too.





The 'Aleksander', squadron leader. 2nd vehicle to be painted for this army.



I replaced the old comedy lascannon with a weapon team one. Extra track as armour.



BAttLE DamAGE!!1111!! with jury rigged repair.



Unofficial unit motto again.



Squadron markings. I wanted to do something akin to a bomber's nose art for the tank squardron and came up with this.



Tank commander. Theres the little targety thing off the SM HK which is to help denote the command status. I like to think the open hatch is the equivalent of a marine sergeant having his helmet off!

I have recently requisitioned another Russ (off ebay!). I'll give that one another LC and (shock horror) HB sponsons (partly because they wont come off!). I generally don't bother with them as I prefer to keep moving, if only an inch etc to make the tank harder to hit in CC. All 3 will weigh in at 500pts (525 with APOC formation) which is a lot but still cheap compared to totally pimped out Russes.

Right that will do, let me know what you think..

Clotho, Lachesis and Athropos

That's something I did think of already but I'm not sure that what I'm going to go with yet.

Here's some more IG goodness.



I have had these puppies sat around for about 10+ years, I was given them back then and they just collected dust until I started this army. They are the Rogue Trader era models and quite sweet really. I just wanted them done when I painted them (back near the start of the whole army) and finished them in an afternoon. I just painted them entirely in dark angel green and then painted interlocking triangles over everything. Black ink wash and a few details later and done. I actually have 6 but they weren't all with me at the time.





They do have the honour of being the only IG I have done to have painted eyes. I need to make a little medal for one of these guys as they killed a 'stealer in HtH, a pretty mean feat anyway but he was under the influence of 'Paroxysm' at time!

Just a quick update for now, but I will do my mechanised veterans 'the Remnants' soon.

"Hello old friend(s)"

Here are my veterans, the 'Remnants'. I wanted them to look like the rag-tag survivors of other platoons which have snuffed it or 'retired' in IG parlance. To this end they all have various squad numbers on their shoulder pads, something that doesn't come off terribly well in these photos.



The squad are generally painted to a higher standard as befits their status. They do have a Chimera too but I need to upload the photos for this still.





Shouty Sarge. He used to be in a PCS but the new book led to him being promoted (?) to squad leader of these guys, so is an older job. He's got a silly strap to hold his helmet as it covers the gaping hole under his armpit. He has a folding stock for his BP too (not well photographed, or made to be frank). I scarified his face for instant kudos (and it impresses the chicks).



Hurt people, the new command sprue has some lovely characterful stuff on it, like these bandaged bits. The sling armed guy has a carbine lasgun. I put a few of these in the squad to be different and to denote their mech status. The meltagunner has a more portable side gripped type as opposed to the bulky back pack version the CCS has.



This meltagunner has the same type of gun, it's been fitted with a strap however, I carefully cut out the flamer and managed to fit the melta in. He also has a drop down thingy over his eye, the command sprue includes one (which the other MG has) and this one is GS. The lasgun has been modified to have an extended front sight and fire selectors. Both (and indeed most of the squad) have small metal disks applied as medals/battle honours. There's a reference to this in the original IG codex and I like the idea.



Bayonetty guys. I wanted a lot of running legs in this squad so they looked all actiony. More modified guns. All members of the vets have a white bandanna tied on their arms to denote the veteran-nuss, like 'chosen men' or something.



Carbiners, one with modified front scope. All these guys are loaded with grenades and knives cos they is well ard.

More to follow......

'What are you some kind of comedian?'

The final bloke from my squad, subtle reference to a certain popular comic which I believe is now a major motion picture. Again he has a smaller type of special weapon, unlike the big backpack version you get on the cadian sprues. Again great bits off the command sprue, this time combined with a spare marine flamer and a reasonable amount of GS to make it all stick together.

I will get the Chimera pics online soon, please comment on anything you like.

Thanks you all for your kind words, as to hand positions it's just weapon/hand swaps. I use GS to change angles to create more movement or character, but only the CCS got wholy built components. The Shouty Sarge in the above Veterans for instance has his chainsword in a 'grenade throwing' arm and is holding it with a 'laspistol' fist, the guard snapped off and I had to build one out of GS, if you look closely the whole hand area is a bit shonkey. The BP arm is a Sarge's chainsword arm, swapping out the hand and adding a laspistol gves a nice 'shooting' pose and it still has the nice Sargeant's stripes. Nothing too extreme really.

Yo

I finally got round to adding this, and so for those of you who haven't already found this pics in the gallery here is my Vets ride:



This is the most recently painted vehicle in my force. Again pretty much speed painted but with a bit more detailing.



She's called Cerebus as it follows the slight classical theme I have in naming, when veiwed from the front the 3 little red 'lights' are like the 3 heads of Cerebus. It's also protective like him and it also has the word 'bus' in it......sorry.



Squad name scrawled on the side. I like adding this kind of graffitti that would be below my marines.



More SM HKs. I think they look nicer than IG. There is some slight converting here, GS brackets are added. and on the other side there is a trimmed down SM bolter scope which is acting a laser pointer to target the HK.



The big targety doobury on the left of the HB barrel is obviously the actual targety bit off the HK.



At the rear on the vehicle bolted to the top of the track guards is a spare HK which could be man handled into the turret bracket (between engagements) as a reload. As it's my vets ride its got loads of stowage and minor modifications.





Close up of stowage and Battle Honour won in the 1st Tyrannic War.

That's all for now, hope you like the space car. I have about caught up to where I am with collecting and painting and so the next stuff will be more WiP. I am about half way through my 3rd Platoon (more AC/GL guys) and will try to get some pics done soon. I expect my IG painting to start slowing a bit as I've just got a Hundred Years War English army for WAB (no really!) and have started doing stuff for them (I might even start a BLOG). I do hope to play a big(ish) APOC game in March and may be motivated to paint the remainder of that platoon and possibly even my 3rd Russ (which is fight BTW). Maybe even do a BatRep.

Thank you for all your comments and please continue leaving them. It's surprisingly motivating actually so you'll be helping me to paint!!

Fething chimeraes, you wait all fething day in the rain, then 3 come along at once...

I really like the clawed battle damage, just under the name.

As with so many things we see photographed on the site, the close up shots don't do the camo scheme the justice it deserves. It looks far far better on the battlefield!

Love the lense effect on the front viewplate, subtle but segsah.

Segsah?

I thought this might be the latest cool kids slang but Urban Dictionary says no. I'll assume it's a compliment, possibly erroneously.

Thanks dude, these guys have been on the back burner for a while. I have half finished my 3rd Platoons command squad and nearly got enough Cadians to build the last Infantry squad for it. I'll probably be motivated to finish them off then as it will be a whole company (Bwa HA haHA) and I'll try to do a nice group photo. I would like to get another Commissar too but don't like many of the models....

In the meantime I have nearly done 94 1:72 scale Medieval blokes!

I really like the misses's Nids, be nice to see your multiple battlewagons up on your blog too if you can get the camera time....

Love to all across the pond
