In related news... I am not involved with the Kickstarter side of things... but some of my sculpts have taken the big step into Kickstarter stardom... so if you are interested in owning a few of my sculpts, head along and have a look :

There will be more added to the range and variations on existing bodies... so this is just a taster .

In similar news, the Kickstarter has funded (£4085!) and will get into full swing now :

... and if you are interested in finding out how it all came about, I've made a blog post about it :

It's been a long time since I worked on any of the standard infantry, for my army so it is nice to be able to show off the command squad for the third infantry platoon:



I have now started working on all of the heavy weapon teams for the platoon... five in all (two for the infantry squads and 3 for the heavy weapon squad).

These are ace as usual. Great conversions and posing. I never get such a nice finish on my GS attempts.

What happens now the KS ended? Are you finished with the alternate H. weapons? I don't need any Squats so wasn't up for jumping in sadly.

Cheers .

As for the Kickstarter... There are three heavy weapon options (Lascannon, HMG and Missile Launcher). Once I've had a bit of a break, all sorts of other bits and bobs are planned for the range (that will be available from Macrocosm Miniatures) so that a platoon can be finished with a range of miniatures. I am planning to make a special weapon trooper with a selection of weapons, a comms trooper, a few extra las-gunners and a few additional Sgts. I also hope to sculpt a few officers and characters. Once this is all done, I will hopefully sculpt all of the heavy and special weapon options for Codex Astra Militarum so that the existing troopers have extra weapons to hold. Then... Extra heavy/specialist troopers...

... I just need a rest for a little while .

I thought I'd get some images of the army, as it stands at the moment. There is still a bit to go but this is where it's at :

Veteran Company: https://i.imgur.com/yAqF2yN.jpg

Armoured Company: https://i.imgur.com/kjnwe8T.jpg

I still need to sort out the third infantry platoon and the transport for the Infantry Company and Veterans... but I'm almost there ... well, apart from paint .

I've started conversion work on the heavy weapon troopers for the third platoon (ten Squats; five gunners and five loaders) but have also been a bit distracted by these guys:



These casts were sent to me by Macrocosm. They are from the ones I sculpted for the kickstarter and I have actually put a bit of paint on them (primed and I have started the black on the Commissar)... I couldn't help myself .

All painted so it's back to sculpting now :



I decided that I'd find a place in this army for an existing unit, also made up of my own sculpts so this small unit of Ratling Snipers will be joining my command platoon :



I've painted the bases so they now match those of the Squats.

Cheers . I felt they were appropriate for sneaky little snipers... and they can be painted in a wide variety of colours to match any battlefield. The main thing is... they are easy to paint too .

These are casts of your masters? They look great, I wish I could justify another army to have an excuse to own these. Keep it up, I look forward to a complete range!

Yep, they are casts of my masters . All of the masters are going to Macrocosm Miniatures so that they can be cast and put up for sale in their shop (at some point) currently, they are being sold through the odd Kickstarter because it's easier to control during the lockdown in the UK.

Now, to add to the masses, here are some WIPs of the next five troops :



I'll be focusing on the arms next .

Still love seeing you add to this army - hoping if we ever get a chance to get to Adepticon again I'll be taking Squats (and hopefully some of these figures via Macrocosm).
