So thanks to My friends , I have finally decided to start on my IG. The first models he showed me were enough that i decided to trade for them and start working towards my next squad. They are currently a mix of Catachan bodies , arms, and legs with glade guard cloaks and Faces. I like the look alot but have had some issues with the arms. Alot of people i have showed them to say the arms look to big, so im gonna post 3 pictures and see what you guys think. Alot of the look from the cadian spur doesnt look promising since cadians are too heavy for my taste ( and since everyone plays them). Overall im trying to keep them as close as i can from the fluff and books along with the artwork for them.

That was back in August 2010. It is now 2011 and my itch to play guard is back. Having left my 1500 points at home , ive decided to start my small budding IG army down here and it has to theme with the one back home hence Tanith / Phantine / Padrus !

Here is what tanith are suppose to look like:


This is DAVE TAYLORS work that i have used as inspiriation for my own:




This is MY OWN work as down below

Only got 4 done (out of like 80?) but its a start. Special Characters are as followed:

Major Rawne (Beret)
Feygor (mohawk)
Mkoll (Grenade)
Crid (Female)

Some work ive done on my Inquistors,

First one is a attempt at Adrastia from DOW II: Retribution (overall not too happy with it, but i ran out of time this summer to work on her)



Second one is of Inquistor Urmarus from our our DH group.



Inquistor Umarus was a interesting character to build for many reasons. First off, he was a combination of ideas presented by myself and the GM on a different type of Inquistor. We decided that he would be a Xeno Hybris Radical. This idea of a inquistor interested in and encouraging his retuine to find and use xeno artifacts presented alot of modeling opportunitys. It also presented a change from the norm for how some of the models would be built. I wanted the model to look imperial and demanding but yet have some less gothic features. Finally in the end, I took parts from many kits and came out with a rough design. Well not completely satisfied with the result, I feel that for the moment, it'll have to do till i can come back to reevaulate it. Once that has happened, I hope to get some pictures up for all to see.

For Gameplay purposes, I will be fielding him, as well as the other members DH characters as a Company command squad for my tanith in certain games. I figure a Inquistor leading IG into battle is a 40k image and am excited for the chances to play him on the table

It looks like you could use some work on your greenstuff cloak technique. Try making the cloak an even thickness and smooth before wrapping it around the model to avoid blobbiness.

Well i got the 1st of 2 packages in the mail today. One was from maxmini and the second from chapterhouse for my Tanith and Phantine Troopers. Today i have to show you the Chapterhouse order of 6 female heads for my tanith. Im not sold on whom will be whom yet but i do think im gonna have my Criid, Branda, and Jess soon enough for the troopers i do have with me while im off at Uni.

The Pictures:




and a view of the spur:



overall im very impressed with CH and their work! The flash was clean and the molding was bar none very clean! Once i get some free time im gonna break open my IG battleforce i have laying here and see how they work out. Hopefully part two of this post with the Maximini stuff will be arriving soon!

I going by the theory that only a headswap is needed to make female guard and the extra...."looks" required of the female figure when added on to combat armour and someone in top physical shape wouldnt be much of a difference. However one of my buddies whom plays DKoK says that he feels it will look wrong. I showed him this source that i felt summed it up, however he remains unconvienced:

quoted from another source:

I have a fellow IG player in my area who made female IG. I gave him this pic as a reference for females in modern militaries;

Breasts (which was a massive concern of his....fetishes.....) are truly not a concern, as noted. Seriously the body armour issued to us totally covers all the assets, the same effect happens to fatigues, but it's artistic license if you want your female IG to have a slimmer looking waist

Found some more of my models from the stuff i did over the summer, I hadnt realized these pictures werent up here yet. Overall im not too happy with these and they were stripped and completely redone. Since i cant get to them at the moment (there at my parents house, im off at uni) these are all i have to show but the main work was redone and all the characters and GS completely changed around

Please note in the group shot you can see the redone models for Mkoll and Rawne. Those two were stripped in simple green and redone again! Im my own worst critic when it comes to getting this army right. As the pictures show, i never got the hang of GS'ing berets. may have to try again over winter break. The hooded WE heads, used intinally were rejected after fan critisms of them looking too "elfish" so they have been removed and natural GS used to make hoods.

I do believe the only model i didnt change around was the blind shotgun sergeant. I just like the way he looked too much

thats kinda funny you say that. Overall he was suppose to be a marbo or a sgt depending upon how i modeled him and what i would decide upon later in my list. I wanted him to be a mkvenner or a mkoll stand in if no other models would "work"

However the cloak and the beret i hated so much that i scrapped the model. The arms are still the same but when i last left him, he was getting a make over with a flagalant warband head and a GS coak covering his body. Ran out of summer to work on that project.

the arm was done because i needed a left arm but only had right arms. i started by taking the catachan command spur arm that is pointing and cuting off the hand. I then flipped the arm over so instead of being a right arm it was a left arm and remodeled the las pistol arm on to there. To cover the very obvious glare in human anatomy i covered most of that arm with a cloak hoping it would cover the damage.

In the next few days i hope to break open the battleforce i have laying here and start on some new additions to my force i have with me. Its only 500 points + Inquistor count as for Lord commie but it's playable and i'll be able to model some more tanith using the maximini and CH bits.

Capitansolstice, I appericate the feed back and the being a part of the P&M blog, Its really kept me motivated!

Sounds good, cant wait to see the battleforce swampy
something that I have noticed that could improve your models, is the fragments of mold lines and vents that are present. If you clean them up the models will look tons more professional.
for greenstuff, maybe using this tut. will help: [url] http://www.heresy-online.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2542

Update for the Phantine Side of things:



Forgeworld Elysian models in the resin. Im planning on eventually running enough of these guys for a small task for of Phantine Skyborne Troopers. Orginally i wanted to replace the helemets to look like this:



and i could do it too by using the pilot heads from the valks, except for the fact that i would need to buy:

A. More Valks for my skyborne and the helemts.
B. Replace said helemts with cadian heads to give the pilots heads.
C. I would only get enough pilot heads for 1 squad at most or 2 if i used the gunners heads too.

So i emailed Dan Abnett and asked for how to get them right for a true Phantine Skyborne trooper. Its true, Mr. Abnett does repsond to his own mail and VERY fast. I got this with in 24 hours.


Hello

I think they look very much like WW2 aircrew crossed with paratroopers, with the jump-packs being "jet pack" type units about the size and shape (and appearance) of
an un-deployed parachute.

Any help?

Dan



This lead to rethink the whole modern design and start looking back into new ideas. I decided the Elysians would be the way to go in the end. Not only to distants themselfs from the tanith but to stand out on the table as one of my FAVORITE regiments in 40k. To finish off this update im still working on how to do the jump pack. while i would want my troopers to have them, im still undersure of how to model them. Ideas would be welcome as always




My personal Favorite and "Me" in 40k so to speak Lt. Jonus "SwampyTurtle" Remaus (sometimes misspelled Remanus). The Remaus Family is of Phantine. The brother Litilus is my Tech priest model and my character from Dark Heresy. Most of the family was killed during the conquest of Phantine by the Blood pact but currently only Jonus and Litilus are the known survivors of the family. Mother Ophilia and Father Byrus have both been found dead at the hands of the enemy. The misfortune and stories of the Remaus family are some i hope to tell both through fan fiction and my own battles. Litilus is unaware his brother is alive having only heard that a man from phantine named Jonus is working for a inquistor =I= as his personal retuine.....

Thanks! hopefully when I get a few more funds cleared up from bills and other parts of life (see: rent, food , ect) i'll have some left over to get another squad or two. My hope is to be able to run them next to the Tanith as a platoon / Vet teams one day. During the summer i ran them as vets. Got me a quick solid objective against a drop pod list that i could post up the battle report should anyone be interested.

These pictures are from July 2010 but are only meant to show the stuff i cant get to at the moment. Since these pictures have been taken, i bought enough models to bring it up to the full 2000+

All of it was for 40$$ When we put it together, it was 1500 points with min. upgrades. Very Nice start if i do say so myself

Most of the models are still in the conditions they were in when i took the pictures of them back when. A few squads have been bathed in simple green and the tanks have been cleaned up.

Im afriad i dont have much to comment on. So instead , i'll tantalize you with whats to come

i recently went for 3rd party products and chose this model to be my female commie; I torn on rather or not i'll replace the pistol with a GW bolt pistol and add a few GW bits so its enough to legally play in tournaments / RT / whatever. (excuse the promo pics, i just ordered my own yesterday so i dont have it yet )






On other fronts, my order to maximini seems to have been lost to the warp (Aka the US postal service, whom claim my address didnt exist , lazy ). Anyway to make a long story short, that mess was cleared up and the order has been sent out again (From Poland mind you!) so im hoping it'll get here sometime this week since i ordered back in September. Originally this was gonna be a 2 part post with the Chapter house models of the female heads i posted above. Once i got it all together i was gonna break it all open with the battleforce and get building in one big P&M mega update. Exams and papers have made that unlikely to happen now.

Instead its looking as if this christmas may roll around before i get to do the mega update and so only small pieces of what to come are being shown now. Im hoping as the models come in and the bitz i'll have more for you all.

Also: Shameless Self promotion here; If you all could check out my Tau P&M, my FLGS is starting a campagin next semester and its looking as if my cadre is gonna help spread the greater good. Any feedback would be appericated
