Cheers .

I've got quite far on the next two but have stalled a bit... so I've been adding a bit of covering to three more armatures, ready for work. That means that once the two special weapon troopers are finished, I'll be sculpting another Sgt another lasgunner and the first officer; a lieutenant.

I think the Sgt will be getting an axe and a bolt pistol, the lasgunner will be standing with his lasgun at 'high port arms' and the officer will have a holstered pistol, sheathed sword and will be 'directing' with his hands.

Still lots of work to go before any of that happens though !

The latest additions; two Special Weapon troopers:



They still need basing tabs and the separate weapons making (4 of them: Melta, Flamer, Plasma and Grenade Launcher) but the Squat part is finished .

It's almost at the point where I can start some proper character models... like officers and advisors... maybe even a psyker .

The only things I need to do before that, are sort out the special weapons and sculpt another two lasgunners .

The first of the special weapons is done... just three more to go now...



Chem-Burnner - A flamer weapon that uses chemical reaction of mixed elements, rather than needing a pilot light to ignite fuel. Two chemicals are loaded into separate tanks and pumped forward into a combining nozzle which ejects the mixture before it reacts and bursts into streams of liquid flame. The weapon tends to be quite long in order to reduce the risk of burning the operator. The weapon counts as a standard flamer in all respects.

Now I'll get these sent off with the other five and wait to see how the casts turn out . I will also take a short sculpting break, before the next Dwarf Sculpts .

Great sculpts, I too think that your sculpting has really 'levelled-up' recently!

I'm glad you like them .

They have been sent for casting now... so I should get some casts back pretty soon. That means I can convert some for more variety in the range .

I'm taking a short break until I have painted some of the new batch... then I'll continue with some conversions and new sculpts .

Have now turned into these:



That means that I will have plenty of casts to convert in order to add a lot more variety to the range, once I have finished the five sculpts I am currently working on .

The project continues... .

I bought the commissar and troopers from Macrocosm recently, to add some variety to the ranks of my old 1st ed. Imperial Guard army that I'm currently repairing and repainting. Just wanted to say thank you and that they look superb - can't wait to get around to painting them up!

I'm glad you like them and I look forward to seeing how you paint them too . It's one of the great things about making miniatures; seeing how other people paint/convert them .

Well done on having all four special weapon options Inso. The special weapons options have always been something GW has struggled with. A metal Guard army with only a pair of the special weapon options available to the plastic Cadians with only two choices in the box.

Cheers,

I'll be addin an auto-cannon to the heavy weapon trooper at some point. I also plan on a heavy flamer option (or two) so that all of the heavy weapon slots are filled .

It's been a while but seeing as this isn't just me advertising miniatures and is all about me building an army, I have started to put a bit of paint down on some of the casts. This is mostly because I am not into sculpting at the moment but also because the whole point of this project is to build my army... so I have started to paint a few miniatures :



In a bid to add a bit of variety amongst the same miniatures, the ones at the back have tanned skin, the ones in the middle will have black skin and the ones at the front will have white skin . I am not painting these in squads... just as batches of miniatures that will be arranged into squads later so all of the squads will get a good mix of miniatures, skin colours and the odd conversion here and there... but obviously, that's a bit of a way off yet.

Still... the journey continues ... more to come.

Cheers ... I'm glad you like them.

The painting is on hold... as is most of my sculpting :( . I've just not been in the mood for any of my hobby lately and it has been a real struggle to get anything done.

As a result, I went back to some of my WIPs and ripped their arms and heads off because I just wasn't happy with them. I then repaired/replaced the arms and have added a head to one of them... so I have made a little bit of progress . Here's the Sgt that I have finished:



The second Sgt is getting his face at some point over the weekend (hopefully) but I am on painkillers (due to chronic pain) so it may or may not happen... If I finish the second one, I'll post pix .
