Another Sunday, another few troopers done. These will be members in infantry squads and part of command squads.

Got five more to do. I should probably work on some more infantry as they’re looking pretty light on the ground.

As well as these I’ve also been making another punisher. Which will be bringing the total to five.

Any comments and criticisms appreciated. Enjoy the weekend.

1) Love the use of artwork as murals on large plates!
2) Yaaas! I LOVE that Hasselfreenian female inquisitor/wich hunter. Your choice to include her immediately makes you awesome in my book.
3) I like that you’re keeping the infantry in olive and brown for the most part and aren’t letting the bling be too much.

Morning ChaoticMind, Thanks for the kind words!

I can't take full credit for the murals on the large paint, I saw it on a Facebook imperial guard page, then I copied and multiplied it.

The hasslefree miniature has been in my bits box for ages. As I was actually meant to order the pure fantasy one for a empire army for Warhammer Fantasy, but least now she's got a space and a lick of paint.

I've seen the Solar Auxilia in various colour schemes, mostly bright colours and i thought they would really suit being in a more regular military colour.


Thanks again!

Nothing to great,

But I’ve these bits since the containers came out. Today was there day. Some scatter terrain hopefully I’ll manage to get some games in shortly to make use of them.

Evening folks.

Nobody asked but I thought I’d show a step by step of my camo on two of my new tanks.

First photo shows the base coat which is Vallejo USA Flat Brown

The second photo shows applying my first camo stripes. Trying to keep away from just doing straight lines.

The third photo shows Minitaires saddle brown matching the camo stripes.

After doing these I’ll then move onto doing the tracks, barrels and other metal gubbins.

Decals added with a bit of weathering done.

Don’t really know what to do for the mine plow. I’m torn between trying to do hazard stripes or just going easy and doing it a fun metal.

Any ideas?

Thanks for looking

Thanks for the step by step of how you do your tank camo. As for the mine plow I'm personally not a fan of hazard stripes so metal would get my vote. Ultimately your call of course, but if you do go with metal maybe take the opportunity to really grit and weather it up?

Mate, i'm loving your tanks, they look so much more substantial than the lemon Russ's, may have to copy if that's okay!

Cant wait to see some more progress on the force, subbed.

You’ll probably hate me for this but, what if you did hazard stripes with damage from normal use exposing bare metal?

To be fair I’ve got three mine ploughs, so I’ll try a hazard stripe on the first. See how it goes. No doubt it’ll go wrong, then I will heavily weather it so it looks good from afar, but far from good.

Thanks for the kind words. Keeping me motivated. Have a good evening.

Doesn't hazard stripes rather negate the purpose of the camo? I mean this is the 41st century but

Ha you’d be surprised. At work I were MTP camo. The amount of times you have to wear high vis clothing so you can be seen is laughable. Often said phrases are “oooooh a floating jacket” or “make up your mind, do you want to be seen or hidden”.

Anywho, I have made no progress on that tank. As I’ve had a delivery of the terrain type. Some more bits of scatter terrain created with some industrial vehicles.

The chimera will be used as terrain and also as an atlas recovery tank if I ever get the urge.

Have a good evening all.

It’s the generator. To bloody big, I had thought of taking a saw to it. But I didn’t want to ruin it with my blundering hands. I’ll have a look at it later and see if there’s anything else I can do.

In other news I’ve picked up a battered hellhammer off Facebook for £20. Let’s see if it can be retrofitted back to its former glory As a hammer of the emperor.

So no progress on the crane as I’ve been away from home for a week. However I did take in a few deliveries.

First of which to grace my table was a humble baneblade. It had been touched by the hands of chaos quite literally.
It was missing it’s front wheels, the tracks and sides had been put together with hot glue and it’s been sprayed and resprayed losing some of the details. I couldn’t resist as it was only £20 including postage.

I have spares of some of the missing bits, mostly blood and skulls industry spares of past projects.

The second was from Nuclear Shrimp I think the company was called. It’s for there own range of miniatures. But to me for all intense and purposes it’s a 8mm Lucius pattern warhound. To go with this I’ve. Bought some 3D prints of Lucius pattern warhound. If anyone knows where to get a Lucius reaver kit to update the plastics I’m all ears.

Also while I haven’t had much chance to do any painting I did get a game in against some DKK, I’ve added a photo using an FX app as I’m a sucker for those type of things.

Wow, that is definitely a Lucius pattern Warlord Titan, it's hard to believe anyone could claim otherwise. Is it really only 8mm? That's great that you are saving and repairing an old baneblade, good luck with that.

Syro, I’ll be able to put a comparison with the new plastics when they arrive in the post.

The baneblade is proving tricky. The wheels where put on incorrectly as well. Meaning I had to take them off, but with the hot glue remnants it is proving difficult to place them where there meant to be.

Minigiant, any thoughts as what to use as a base model? Like conventional horses, bikes or something all together new?

So a little work on the Lucius pattern warhound for AT18. Honestly, I know it’s not the best. But I just couldn’t give the green any more depth. Any thoughts of how to get it better?

Apart from that. I enjoyed my little tree addition to its base. I may give it a little autumnal spray to make it fit better with the base and blend less with the Titan.

Nuclear Shrimp you say?

Private_Benjamin, no worries there. It’s taking some time thanks to it being attacked with crazy glue but it will get there. I’m using the aggressor tracks. I think that’s what they’re called. They look very aggressive probably leaning towards chaos than imperium as far as aesthetics go. Also I’ve got there power plant with the big smoke stacks instead of the little ones the original comes with.

Kid_Kyoto, yeah Nuclear Shrimp, it’s a little company based in Corfu (Greece). It took a while to get here, but it was certainly worth the wait for me. I am very impressed. The resin had a few slippage marks. But nothing overly concerning.

For those that wanted a size comparison here is the Lucius compared to the Mars. I started painting my Fureans Warlord yesterday. Base yellow, metals and flames done. I’ve tried a few golds and brass and can’t decide on the trim colour as none look particularly right next to the yellow. Ideas?

Good evening it’s been a while. Work and real life interfering with the hobby.

Been working on my AT. But nothing worthy of photos.

The guard however have been moving forward. The tank factory still rolling them out. From left to right we have an annihalator battle tank awaiting a turret and tracks. The tank commander is still in his packaging. The commissar. Ready to pop any tank which flees.

The Recce tank, I wasn’t fully behind the last version I made but I think this is certainly a step in the right direction. If I find some spare crew I think it’ll really look good. Make it pop. Pondering over whether to paint it in camo colours or a more civilianised red/ yellow scheme.

Then furthest right we have a completed annihalator awaiting paint.


Hope this is good update for you. C&C welcome.

Custom conversions are always more interesting that putting something together "by the bool" and with being said your creations are not only unique, but very cool, especially the Recovery / Wrecker Tank!

Cheers Benjamin.

I do like the conversions, ideally I'd like GW to just update the Leman Russ, or add in another heavy tank. My true want, would be to have the Macharius variants become heavy supports and plastic.

A man can hope right?

So today I'll mostly be focusing on base coating 2 annihilators, a demolisher and the recovery tank.

Hi guys thanks for the kind comments. Really keeping me motivated to see the project through to the end (Is there ever an end to an Imperial Guard project? )

Yeah I'm using some flame stencils from Anarchy. I cannot recommend them enough. I've used them on multiple projects, from just putting red stars on tanks to putting leopard spots on Knarlocs. All of which have been better than my freehand could ever achieve.
