Thanks for taking a look.

Hell yeah!

Really great looking conversions. The storm trooper helmets scale nicely with the rest of the marine parts. Is the AT-ST a counts as Dred?

The weathering and scorch marks break up the white color scheme nicely and look well executed. Top notch work, this army is sure to turn heads.

So are the Terminators just Terminators? Or do they have an awesome conversion as well.

LOL! awesome! I was seriously just thinking about what that would look like, and then i saw this. But the shoulders look odd, not bad just outta place.

I think the models look completely appropriate without shoulder pads in this case.

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Lol epic really. Probably should have kept the shoulder pads on just so their arms didn't look so flimsy attached to the body, could have even put some imperial symbols on them but none the less still great.

Not a big fan of airbrush work (perhaps because I don't own one ^^), but these guys look really good. Even without drilled-out barrels.
The only thing I could really criticize are the speeders - while certainly looking good, especially the front part looks a little flat and could use some darklining.
Their heavy flamers, however, do look awesome. Wish I owned a new speeder... Why, can't have everything.

Your Land Raider, too, is awesome. The lenses are admirable - and the red stripes are top notch.
Is there more to come? And could we have some close-ups of the terminators?

Besides: what are you using for the light sabers? Are those Lego pieces I spy? ^^

nicely done , love the weathering on the vehicles
same for the shoulderpads tbh... and drill out your gun barrels , otherwise very well done

For the light sabers, you should of bought those neon see through tooth picks. I used to use them for power weapons and the like in my CSM army, the size is closer.
Nice army though
Whered you get those helmets?

The marines are quite good, the only things I'd suggest are again to drill the barrels, switch out the lightsaber as it looks a bit out of place, and maybe add some emblems/squad markings to give them a bit more contrast.

The vehicles completely blew me away. Very clean paint job, incredible weathering, and a very effective color scheme? Sign me up! I agree with Rogan that the speeders could use a bit more contrast up front. The rhinos too really. Maybe add a bit more of the red up front?

Interesting choice, covering up the rhino windows. It certainly doesn't look bad, but I am a bit curious as to why.

I love it!!!

Considering how much work can go into a custom army its not going to be perfect if you actually plan to play with them. Great work and will look awesome on the table.

Make sure the models are easily representing what they actually are. So for a Dread, the model should have some sort of similarity. Still, looks like you're doing just fine.

My only quip is the light sabar. Looks really icky. Way too thick and chunky and although "star wars", not really for a storm trooper. Maybe choose another type of star wars hand weapon? Plenty to choose from.

thanks for compliments. as for the bolters not being drilled, some armies are pre assembled by my client. He went through hours of magnetizing and careful converting for this army. pics dont show the whole story. About 50 converted storm trooper,vader and the emperor. dred has tons of magnetized weapon options. i believe he intends on playing it as vulkan SM and BA

It's good,but you need to put the Empire symbol on them.

Nicely done. I think the paldrons missing is completely appropriate for your look. The paint is beautiful and the basing on your troops is brilliant. Very well executed.

Whenever you leave your models on display, leave a mp3 player next to it and let it play the Imperial March theme music on repeat. That would be epic!
