The red looks nice and smooth!

Highlights need going over again but for now I'm calling that finished. Quite pleased by my standards but need to take a look at some weathering techniques.



Next up, it's time to bring this ramshackle crew into some order.

Don't yet know 40k well enough to know exactly what she'll be - a commissar? - but that's her ready for basing and trying to find someway to reliably switch the led on and off.

Some penal legion lockdown painting progress.

Looks like a commisar to me!

Those are nifty figures, too.

The project moves slowly but inexorably onwards during lockdown. This time my Nork Deddog/Ogryn bodyguard progress shot.

Some really nice ideas you got there. I especially like the School buses. And of course the riders because... riders you know?

She doesn't fit easily into IG but I had this miniature lying around for an age and I definitely want her in there.

She'll be a Jackal Alphus, backed up by a vehicular GSC detachment, with the rest being a massive brood brothers detachment if I can make it work.



A couple of painted pics. Not my absolute best but I'm chuffed with the grey and the green fabric.

I had put off building my chassis for basilisks/wyverns/Hydras etc but got down to it tonight and it was actually fun. Not bad getting 3 for £21, card or not.

Now to get them painted by someone better than me and start working on the weapon options.

Back on this project to try and get it done and dusted and actually play a game with them at some point.

Decided to keep the more tractory looking tanks as Basilisks. A recent kickstarter sorted out a Hydra and Wyvern.

Got some work done on my first Basilisk/Manticore proxy done. All kitted out, now just to get the spotter painted.

Tank from Lasercutcard.za, missile rig from zinge and the spotter from statuesque miniatures.

Didn't spend a huge amount of time on the spotter but calling that done.

Couple of pics together with a group shot of all finished tanks to date.





The Hydra and Wyvern are now on the painting table.

Picked up a couple more of the prisoner transport buses, which this time I'm looking to turn in to Hellhounds. Managed to find a few accessories for my first effort in the bits box. Very much after the ramshackle jury rigged vibe and think this fits the bill.

Been too long since I looked in on this project- you've gotten some really nice work done! That motorcycle rider is great- terrific pose and well painted. In the old days- before 'editions' of the manuals- commissars could be equipped with pretty much anything in the Empire, be it Guard or Marines. She could have been an Imperial Guard mounted commissar for only a few army points to equip!

Like the Hellhound buses- very Mad Max. Excellent detail with the hoses and rivets.

Thanks very much, appreciate the feedback. Definitely chuffed with how the hellhound is looking. Just to get it finished, polish off a few more of the vehicles and then it's on to some characters.
