hey people,
after having tons of fun with my speed freaks it was time for a new 40k army.
and after being inspired by some (lots) of army movies ive decided on guard.
but any regular guard army wont do. just like me speed freaks its going to need to be my guard army.

that means lots of conversions, prefably every unit.
so first i set out to make a list to build up to, wich i have now.

being particually inspired by the tanks from full metal jacket, i decided to make
my leman russ just like it. here's what ive done so far.

next up is the hellhound wich i just need to finish painting (and a little greenstuff here and there)

Very Nice, that valk is spectacular.

Sihamoni takes great pride in the league he helped create, as was conveyed in his recent advertising campaign for the CMFL that stated his midgets will "... take on anything; man, beast, or machine."

That sound would be me hiding in the corner from the Valkyrie wings! Awesome work. I'm liking the M-60-esque Russ as well. Good luck with completing that.

Loving the GL's! Have to echo on the Valk! It looks amazing! I'm sure the pictures still aren't doing it any justice.

hey guy's (and possible girls )
dont have a lot of time ight now cause of exam week so i havent done a lot lately.
i did however find the time to do this.

found this style of windows somewhere else and decided it would be awesome to do for my valk as well.
so i whiped out my (OLD) airbrush and got started. really love how it turned out, now back to studïng.

Love the Valk!

What materials are you using for casting? The resin color seems unusual though I suppose it can be any color.

Airbrush! Nice! Another chip in my wall of reluctance to buy a good compressor.

Glad to see that you are updating again.

Love the plastic work on the shotgun. The green stuff sculpting looks a bit rough though. I can't help but wonder how many of them you can crank out while keeping them consistent in appearance.

Maybe you should cast them?

hey people,

been gone a long time, lots a stuff c ame up so i havent been hobbying a lot lately.
so ive continued on the russ a bit but so much to show the progress amd finally started finishing the hellhound.
also build and painted a base for the vendetta. really like how it came out, ill post pics of that later.

but what i came back here to show was a drawing i made. after seeing some new stormtrooper concepts from FW
i totally got stormtrooper fever and whent about to draw my own concept for a stormtrooper. i dont care if you dont like the drawing,
i love it and decided to make a sculpt of it. ill let you on the progress later but first the concept, still needs a backpack though.

also, i bought a chimera (the bandwagon, im on it)

Hey people,
been gone a long time but im finally updating again, took me over 6 months though. its not because i havent been busy with my guard that i havent been updating but
more so that i almost forgot this thread excisted, and i havent really been busy with my guard. until recently that is. See, there was this tournament in the netherlands(thats where i live) last weekend called battle of the clubs. and we go every year with our club so my guard had to be finished for the tournament. so i kicked my ass in gear and finished my guard.

well not really but i came close enough, here's some of the results

as for the tournament, my not so competitive guard list preformed rather well, given the competive nature of the tournament. i scored a 20-0, 12-8 and a 16-4 facing eldar, chaos marines and grey knight. in the second game all the opponent had left was one landraider with 2 marines capturing 1 of the 2 objectives and in the third game he only had a landraider preventing a wipeout. all in all pretty nice considering i was on the not so serious team of our club and not the "A-team".

the list was:

company command, 4X melta, powerfist, chimera


vets 3 melta, chimera
vets 3 flamer, demo's, chimera
platoon command 4 grenade launcher
3x squad las cannon
commisar power weapon
2x heavy squad auto cannon


leman russ battle tank
2x hydra

anyway, pics
