I love that tower, brilliant use of sprue. Now I I know what to do with my extra since I keep a bunch of it for odd projects. Are you going to do more terrain DIYs like this? I'm working on my own gaming table in the garage and would love to see more like this so that I can stop using random boxes and jars for terrain :p

Thank you all guys, don't actually believe it yet but apparently my little tower won one of the bits of the competition.

Now on to next bit, the contents of the box.

The idea here is that though they are Catachan Jungle Fighters, they are currently deployed to the desert. So some head gear is in order and proper camo on the kit etc. I also am one for conversion and am not that keen on all my guys looking the same.

So I did a little conversion work, and had a go at this GS malarkey.





Your thought are very much appreciated.

Congratulations Cam. You didn't just win a bit of the competition, you won overall. Good job.
It's a worthy winner (especially with all that sprue ).
And it was a brilliant concept, using the sprue and box from just the one set of models.

Liking the GS work. Good effort.

kudos on the win cam digging where your catachans are going going to have to take notes to make knock off tallerans one day.

that tower i will try that out and see if i can not do the same thing. very inspirational...and other than paper mache and wire trees i had know idea you could make a card board plant...now if i could make a plant potter then i would start a rather interesting project....

any way cant wait to see more inspiration man

Good job on the win in Brian's comp - to follow your win in Panda and my comp as well - You'll need a dedicated trophy cabinet alongside your model display shelf soon

Update. Small update.

Still struggling with the win. Thank you all. Can't believe it still.

Do I need to do a bit more of a breakdown on the techniques used in my competition entry? Proper tut?

Ok so slow progress, but here you go. Here is Sarge. (Or what ever you call a unit leader.....)

Your thoughts are welcome.

The little tutorials you did at the time were pretty good, but you could always compile them into a full tutorial like I did for the hut.

The sarge' looks pretty good (a little tidying of rough edges and he's good to go). I can't add anything.

My only suggestion would be to change the pistol for a plasma pistol if allowed, he's just looking away from the gun like its gonna go boom. Otherwise looks top notch.

Update:

@DrH thanks. Yes a bit of cleaning up to do still. And I think I will take Theo's suggestion.

@ Comrade. Thanks boss, and soooooooo true.

@ Theo. Thank you, and yes I looked it up (not that I am worried) and I can give him power sword and Plasma pistol, so as you suggest I will be swapping out when I do the clean up on him shortly.

I Looked out the parts for Sarge, and came across some other bits that distracted me to another of the team, I know it's probably been done a thousand times before, and will be done again, but I am afraid it has to be done. Heavy conversion, well it speaks for itself. So can you guess......(Doh!)


These are the parts, I took the drum mag off the autocannon from a sentinel. And the lasgun from a suitable arm.


I shortened the barrel little, look bloody silly else!!!!


I notched out for the hand and added a bit of sprue (nods to the good DR) To fill where the drum mag came off.



I will pin it on the body in a bit, but will not fix in place until I start painting.

Your thoughts gentlepersons?

Wow, that looks cool, hopefully we ll see this arm attached soon to a body. I think one day I will try that conversion too...bad assets at its best!

It needs a strap going over his shoulder and arm to really justify it. Looks really good otherwise.

I am a bit undecided about the scheme of sarge...you have a green plasma effect but a blue power sword..I usually aim for the same colour on a model for energy effects... but that is just my take on this theme.. also... the rope colour I think is slightly off for m too..

BUT... I just love the sergeant stripes tattoo...brilliant idea and he looks really mean (meaning brilliant painted face!)

Thank you gent's. And I am also a bit divided on the sash colour.

Well I will let these pics speak for themselves. Not quite finished, but close.

Your thoughts as always are greatly appreciated, and necessary actually.

So, this is long over due.

A big thank you to Casey's Law.

I did a deal with him for some Tyranids. All went well, but I did not really go through it all when it arrived, had a quick scan through and was very happy, because he had dropped in some extra bits. Well today I actually got it all out to take a picture to show off, and I am over the moon. Casey thank you so much, wonderful extras, incredibly generous of you.

I got millions of hormagaunts, bunch of Gargoyles, bunch of awesome Genestealers, 3 Raveners, 3 Zoenthropes, a Broodlord, and Bodies for Carnifax and Tyranifex.

I have plans for all of it, the pictures below are firstly Casey's Generosity, and then with my daughters existing tyranid army. (please ignore the paint job, it's a work in progress.)
