Squaddies 4 & 5 are done. One of which ended up carrying a Heavy Flamer. Not sure why.... I just liked the idea.






Also made a Librarian!! Quite happy with the posing and the conversion. It's very simple but worked pretty well if I don't say so myself!!







Not sure whether to do the Librarian in the same Black and Yellow Quartered scheme or do him blue with one shoulder pad in the quartered scheme. Thoughts?

Painting/Conversion for the true scale Marines is on hold for the time being. A mate of mine has convinced me to go to a tournament at the end of THIS MONTH. So for the next few weeks this is what I'm going to be working on. I'm taking my 'Mad Max' Guard list as it needs the least work and investment done to it in order to make it tournament ready.

First of the new additions is 'PASK' or SHREDDA as he's known in my list.











If you're interested in my list, this is it. I'm going to trawl through my old files and find some pics of the army so far...


PASK, Punisher, Lascannon, Multi-Melta Sponsons
- Exterminator, Lascannon, Multi-Melta Sponsons
- Exterminator, Lascannon, Multi-Melta Sponsons

Veterans, 2 Melta, Taurox

Demolisher

Executioner, Plasma Sponsons

Knight Paladin.


EDIT:

For those of you that don't know the army...... here's where I left it.














...last but not least......... STOMPY!!! (he's being base coated At the mo)

Cheers man. I'm half way through putting the washes on it. Then it's drybrush-tastic!!!

Found some better pictures of those 3 Russ so I figured I'd put them up. The two Russ need to be converted into Demolishers.

I only recently started doing panels with more rough cuts and gnawed edges like yours - I still like yours better than mine (something for me to work toward). I think I like the simplicity of yours as well. Really good stuff!

It's just scalpel work so nothing arduous or complicated. Having a Rag-Tag look is fairly forgiving ...........Just make sure you have lots of plasters on hand. My thumbs make me look like I'm some sort of masochist.

Is it the light or is the giant chainsword arm a lighter color than the rest of the model? Overall your theme and execution are great. And your paint jobs are beautiful.

I love those tanks! And the all metal painting of them...looks like a lot of fun to come up with random "signs" to peice together. You should do one with a fake vintage "Pepsi" sign...like the ones those pickers are always after hehehe...giant robot mech is cool too, though a bit stocky in design for my taste, but that's just style and why Ibe never painted orks, really well done though!!

Waaazaag: I think that's the picture where the flash went off on the Camera, hence the colours look a wee bit lighter.

BB: Cheers mate! That's a cunning idea! I think my tanks are going to feature a hell of a lot of Logo's from now on!!


Right, Shredder is all painted up. It really did not take as long as I had thought. I think I spent more time overall on the ganger than I did on the tank! Hopefully it doesn't show!

I have three 10 man Squads of Goliaths which will count as Veterans. I also have a command squad of 5 which is pictured here. The spare 3 are on the Stompa/Pask. I do have 7-8 of the Plastic Goliaths but they don't really count!! I have FAR more Eschers in a bag but they are waiting for a separate project!!

Right, speaking of old school stuffs. I had a dig through my old boxes and found a trove of old Inquisitor models. This is what I found.....

1x Inquisitor Tyrus
5x Inquisitor Covenants in different states of conversion. Only 1 was complete but that's 'OK' as I have plans....
8x Complete Guardsmen including a converted Sergeant Stone. Plus a spare set of legs.
1x Cadian Guardsmen (Doran Black is his name I think)
2x Converted Kal Jerico. One is a commissar the other is just a head swap.
2x Random Imperial Citizens plus about 3 spare legs from the same models
1x Enforcer Woman
5x Daemon Host body & Arms
1x Space Marine.
1x Tech Priest

Random Weapons, Pouches, Power Mauls and a single enclosed Helm from the enforcer Woman.


So........ what I was thinking is.... To do one Warband made from the Inquisitor Covenants. They'd all have the same robed legs and armoured Torso's and I'll make some Moulds of the Enclosed Helm so they are all 'Uniform'. The idea behind these guys is to do an Inquisitorial 'PURGE SQUAD'. Hence the same uniforms.

The other idea is to do a 'radical' warband with the Tyrus. Supported by the Tech Priest and a random assortment of Mutants and Gun slingers.


As for the Rest. They can act as 'inquisitorial troopers' or just random NPC's.

Ok, I have built the Radical/Rogue Inquisitor and I'm part way through his Warband. This is just a sneak peak; I'll have more pictures of him tomorrow.




Some pictures of some of the other bits I've been working on. Restoring some bastardised Covenant torso's using some instant mould. I also made a few complete torso's for later conversions. The Radical Inquisitor was based off a Torso that has some imperfections. In other news I've been working on the 'Executioner' as well. I've sculpted him some fully armoured arms which I'm fairly proud of. Pictures of him will appear tomorrow.




Oh, I forgot to add! My tournament with the Road Warrior Guard army.... Here's some pictures from the 3 games.


Found some pictures of the boys in action. More Pictures on the Clubs FB page. LINKY. I did pretty well ending 8th out of 24 entrants. There were some fairly horrible lists there to be fair including 3 Wraith Knight lists, Riptide Spam and even a list with a Warhound titan (4 large Blast D weapon shots, Ouch!) The nastiest I think was a Mech Stompa with a Big Mek and 5 Meks inside with the rest of the army as Ork Bikers. Anyway...

First game I played against a really nice guy who'd only been playing for 7 months. He had a Grey Knight Terminator Army supported by two Dread Knights. In fairness, and being kind, I raped him. An Open board with terminators running towards Plasma Tanks and Demolishers isn't Fun. He killed Stompy and 1 Taurox. I almost tabled him (he had 2 models left hiding behind a building) and claimed all 5 objectives, had line breaker and everything else..

Second game I came up against a Riptide spam list. Basically, I put my models down. Then put them back in my case. I have never seen someone roll so many 6's in my life. He exploded 8 out of 9 tanks in 2 turns in one shot kills. Stompy did well, inflicting 23 WOUNDS to a Riptide in a fairly Epic display of awesome. Then eventually got dragged down through weight of fire. I lost. Hard. :(

Third and Final Game was against a equally nice chap with a drop pod Minotaur Marine list supported by a Knight Lancer. The army looked awesome and I felt really bad for what I did to it. He killed Stompy with his Knight and that was it. I tabled him in 4 turns. The Stompy Vs Knight-Lance fight was pretty Epic though. Stompy ran into combat, Fluffed all his attacks. his Knight hit with all 4 attacks and, only needing to do 5 HP to kill stompy rolled 4 D3 and rolled 4 1's! Leaving stompy on 1HP. Stompy died next turn but inflicted 3 HP in return. I felt truely sorry for this guy. Points were something ridiculous like 35-3 or something.


My Army was voted second best which was pretty awesome I must say! I lost to my der friend who was sporting a bright orange chaos Marine army.










OH CRAP!


Stompy makes a Friend............ Kinda

Some better Pics of the Rogue Inquisitor...







This will be the Inquisitor leading the Execution Team. His left arm still needs finishing obviously! He'll be holding a Storm shield once I've built it!





Some things I've been making moulds of. Came out pretty well I think.

Does anyone actually play Inquisitor?


W.I.P of the Storm Shield...




I'll have the =][= in the centre of the Wings. I'll then see if I can sculpt an Iron Halo at the top. We'll see how much rage it involves though

The four finished members of the Team. Think I'm going to go for the Crazy Pit fighter Cyborg for the 5th Memeber. Randomly found the Servo skull. I don't think I painted it and Im not even sure it's for =][= but it's too big to be 40k so......... who knows.









The =][= needs filling down and it needs a Skull in the centre to finish it off. What do you think thus far?

That shield is nuts! I'd totally rock that bad boy on a heavy armored inquisitor. I really like seeing conversions on metal models. Just seems more impressive then plastics.

Painting has started on the Rogue Inquisitor. I went for Dark Angels Green Armour (to be a bit different). The clothes will probably stay black but with green details/freehand to tie it into the armour. The green and Visor is finished (minus damage obviously) but the metal is just basecoat and wash at the mo.






Secondly. I added a Mechaden.......Mechadendi......... Mecha-Tentical (Chinese school girls beware) to the Magos and modelled it so he's ripping up a cable from the ground (sneakily cutting a power line or coms line). It was made froma paper clip wrapped with thin brass wire.






Last but by no means least. The shield is done. All that's left to do on his now is to make a scabbard for his sword. Then he's done. I'm going to keep the head separate so I can swap between heads as the whim takes me.







Right, I'm off to Australia now for 2 weeks. See you guys then!

Cheers mate!

Thinking adding a 5th member to the rogue team. I'm toying with either......

A: An Ex Guardsmen carrying a Heavy Stubber. He's not going to be very smart but he's going to be all muscle all the time. Obviously with tattoo's and a cigar. Possibly with a Stimm addiction while we're at it.... OR

B: A cyborg killing machine with implanted weapons. A chain arm and a drill arm probably! Again, lots of stimms.

ack from Holiday and back with an Update. The Inquisitor/Interrogator is done. Very happy with the way the Green stuff painted up....... you almost wouldn't know





Green came out the best in this one...




Made this guy whilst bored. He's an escaped Pit fighter/Slave. The head is a press mould of Sergeant Stone.

I think stone makes a much better Pit Slave than he does a Guardsman! A very nice little conversion.

I also have to say that the Covenant conversion looks amazing and the GSing in the shield is absolutely spot on, very well done. Great Stuff!

Here's 'The Executioner'. I went for a fairly high tech look as I figured the Inquisitions bounty hunter would have the best gear. The helmet is based off the Praetor pattern Space Marine Helmet. Thinking of adding a back pack, thoughts?

Great work, last Inq. is my favorite model so far. Helmet is looking great and in my opinion backpack is not needed.
