Not a massive update but we're currenty moving house so Hobby time is at a premium at the moment! Still, to add to my growing collection of BFG scenery I have some planets. Excuse the quality of the pictures, the lighting is horrific. The green pools are actually highlighted bilious green so are quite luminous in reality. Maybe some more pics tomorrow..... maybe.




I had bought a cheap resin 'copy' of a Retribution from China as a present for a fellow hobbyist but the quality of the cast was pants so I ended up salvaging what I could and re-did my 'sawn-off' Battleship. This will be my Avenger Grand cruiser for my Rogue Trader fleet (with armoured prow, Prow torps and 45cm Weapon Batteries!!!). I also went ahead and painted/finished some swords.







The 'Stone Fleet'. 6 more escorts to do and then I''ll start work on the Merchant fleet


Next up is either some 'Heavy Escorts' (Havocs with 45cm weapon batteries) or two Mechantmen.... We'll see what happens....... I could end up doing something completely different. :-\

Very nice, I like the transport too, tank wheels and Space Marine shoulder pads no? Heavy flamer engine.

You might want to check out the DropFleet COmmander space station or ships sprues, tons of great bitz.

Cheers! Yeah the transport are indeed the parts you spotted, with the occasional bit of plasticard. Quick and easy! They do the job.

I've seen the DFC stations and they're pretty awesome. I may pick them up for weapon platforms and orbital docks. Although at the moment my 'hobby cash' is going into buying the last few ships of my Gothic fleet! I'm waiting for an Emperor Battleship and a Dauntless with Torpedoes to crop up on ebay and then I'm done! 10,000pts of Imperial Navy!................. Then I just need to paint it 0.o.

Two Mechantmen are currently underway. If you have no idea what Merchantmen are, think light cruisers with launchbays and some light weapon batteries. I'd take pics but, well, they're only basecoated at the moment!

Cheers man!

Well, the two Merchantmen are done. Based on the Dauntless hull. Fluff-wise they are mothballed and derelict Siluria class cruisers that have been recommissioned and converted into transport ships. I'm thinking about adding some freehand or something to the prows but I couldn't decide what........ so, until I do they are finished.

Well, some work this afternoon saw me build the 'master' model for my transport. It's not massively detailed but considering how small it is IT WILL DO. I'm going to see if my 'Caster' can knock this up for me as I need 12. If not I'll have to have a go myself. 0.o

Ok, well I received my first 'sneak-peek' of the Cast up High Conveyor. Apparently it's no an easy thing to cast up! There's a few issues with this one (as you can see) but they will apparently be sorted out in the next few batches (Here's hoping!

Well, Sh!t just got serious! I've been tinkering around with a whole warband for around about a year and I finally have all the parts to proceed with my little band of Merry Assassins and desperadoes. First up is....

Gravier BRASK: Inquisitorial Agent, Investigator and general finder of bad and naughty people. Based on a few models but I'm sure you know the parts. His pose is a little 'off' but he will be walking down some stairs (which makes the pose work).





Next up is....

Annabelle Orphea: Inquisitorial Agent and operative. She specialises in stealth missions and generally being freaking deadly. Still seriously WIP but I sculpted a face AND I LIKE IT!!! (mostly).




She will eventually end up looking similar to this picture...

You may remember I tried to do this model before but, in fairness, I didn't like the conversion I did so I'm starting again. Yay!

Cheers man!

A little update, nothing massive as I'm just not getting enough time to concentrate on sculpting. Just the head gear, hair and the little visor/sight thing is done. It was quite hard discerning what was actually going on with the gunsights in the picture so a bit of artistic licence was used!!

Looking at her face now, I think her nose is a little 'blunt' so I might re-do the tip of her nose. We'll see. I'm going to ditch the sword in favour of having two pistols. Because two pistols is cooler, although It does mean I need to make two Holsters instead of the one!








Well, Next up is the details on the belt, the holsters and then I'll get cracking on the arms.

This is a 'prototype' light cruiser/Merchantman for my Rogue Trader fleet. I might do two more, or they might look completely different........ I'm not sure yet. It's built out of Sentinel pelvis, Sentinel Multi Laser and the bridge is a Sentinel Knee cap. I have quite a lot of Sentinel legs left over from making a few guard buggies out of the cockpit........ so I might finally find a use for the parts! huzzah!

Well, I received a BIG box of resin goodies. My High Conveyor is finally done!! The pics are pretty shocking but, like a kid with a new toy, I had to take some pics and show off!!




This is a picture of one of the miss moulds I 'rescued'.





I also got the first set of little transport ships. They came out really nice actually. My OCD had to put them in colour order :/



I'll try and get some of the transports and maybe one of the High Conveyors painted this weekend.

Well, the first High Conveyor is done. I went for the 'Dust-cart in space' look. Originally I ha planned a white prow but, well, someone beat me to the mark with that so I went with the hazard stripes Part of me wants to think they are the biggest hazard stripes ever created by man. I think they would be hard to beat




Here she is with some little 'friends'. Still WIP but I'm hoping to get them done soonish. Providing the heat doesn't prevent painting.




Also working on two more for my Battlefleet Gothic fleet. Still WIP and I need to think of some freehand shenanigans for the prows.

Was trying not to want one of your mass conveyors but the paint job just shot my resistance in the head
Will slot in nicely with one of my inquisitor rogue traders fluff

Cheers Kyoto/Radu.

Yes Radu. They would look awesome in your fleet......... but not as awesome as three of them would I'm afraid you will have to wait a while though as they have now 'sold out'. I've spoken to our mutual friend so will hopefully get some more in a few weeks. I didn't think they'd go that fast :S (Not that that's a bad thing)

OK, so what the hell is going on with Photobucket now???? They are now charging $400 a year to host on 3rd party sites!!!! All my old pics are now gone from the thread

Oh well..... Been far to long since I actually updated this thread with pictures of toy soldiers so I'll show you some of my current WIPs.

First up is the Cadian Guard squad. Luckilly some chap kindly put up LOADS of guard gear on Ebay so I grabbed enough to seriously flesh out the squad with kit and gubbinz. Plus grenades and knives for everyone!!!! I just need to get my arse into gear and finish the missile launcher chap!! Once he's done, painitng time!




I've also been working on a small squad of Catachans. I'd love to get my hands on the 5th and final model to finish off the squad but he seems to be somewhat elusive. If anyone has a spare set of Toothpick Murke legs and body I'd dearly love to hear from them!!!

Those Imperial Guardsmen look really cool, it almost makes me want to do some 54mm scaled stuff...

Yes.....yes. Join the 54mm crew!!!

It certainly gives a different modelling perspective that's for sure. You can, if you want to, spend a ridiculous amount of time getting the details and conversions on a model. At that scale, it's easier to do the conversions but it's harder to hide sloppy conversions at 54mm


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Finally, FINALLY got the last ships to complete my 10,000ts of Battlefleet Gothic





That's...

1x Dreadnought
1x Terra class Battleship
2x Retribution Battleships
1x Nemesis fleet Carrier
2x Emperor Battleships
2x Apocalypse Battleships

2x Mars Battlecruisers
2x Overlord Battlecruisers
4x Armageddon Battlecruisers

6x Lunar class cruisers
2x Dictator class cruisers
4x Dominator class cruisers
6x Dauntless light cruisers

20x Sword Frigates
20x Firestorm Frigates
20x Cobra destroyers

Well........... Guess I should start painting then. 0.o
