I'll be building my own vehicles... as nice as those Steel Legion ones are, they don't fit my theme for this army

Scarecrows? ... Hmmm

The troops are now armed so next up will be a layer of putty on the wire before I start sculpting the arms properly :

Well, all of the leg casts have now been sold and I won't be casting any more. That said, I have had an offer for the green so it is likely that it will be sold and may be cast up by someone else in the future. Sadly, there wasn't the demand for me to keep casting them :( .

I decided that I wanted Sly Marbo in my army so I have started to convert one... this is still WIP :

After a random suggestion on another forum, I have decided to add a few extra elements and turn Marbo into a Vanguard detachment

In order to do this, I have started a Sgt Harker conversion and plan to also convert a platoon commander with a command squad... and give them a Valkyrie to flit about in.

With this in mind, I have just received a Corvus Blackstar from the postman and will be converting that into a slightly smaller (Squat sized) Valkyrie.

The troops will be reminiscent of the rescue team in the Predator movie... so there will be a few little design cues from the film, added to the little unit.

It will make a nice little self contained detachment for my army with no other reason for existing, other than the rule of cool

Love all the conversion work! Really wish I had stumbled onto this plog awhile ago so I could have grabbed some of those legs!

I look forward to seeing what else you do! Keep up the great work.

This Valkyrie will give me the chance to recreate some nose art I painted on a helicopter while I was in Kuwait. Luckily, Airfix made a model kit at 1/48th scale so I will be able to use most of the decals from that kit on the Valkyrie.

Here's my (slightly larger) nose art :

He's joined by a very WIP Harker in this pic... although it would appear that I had so much fun building the Valkyrie proxy that I felt the need to keep building... so I have started to build some amphibious transport vehicles :



I have another Hanomag on the way so that I have enough for a platoon (1 each for the command, 2 infantry squads and a heavy weapon squad). If these turn out OK, I may have finally beaten the curse ...

A little bit further. I'm just waiting for the fourth kit to arrive so I can get it to the same standard as these and then work on them all together:

The merc team is on a bit of a hold at the moment while I clear a few other things... but I mean to get back to them as soon as I can

The vehicles are something I always struggle with... hopefully, the next ones you see will be my amphibious transports

In more sculpting news, I have finished the competition sculpt now:

Something for the army again; this time, it's a pair of Dreadnoughts to go with the Space Marine component of the organisation. Obviously, I can't just get a dreadnought or two. That would be too easy... so I bought a box of Mechanicus robots and here we are. Still WIP but I am getting there :
