Krieg! What a hole...

And so I have recieved my Grenadiers and assembled them. It is now time to make a P&M blog for e'm.

I will prime the whole squad tomorrow once the filling glue is set and upload a picture of the squad primed, in the meanwhile enjoy the individual picture of the squad members and a close up of the part I screwed (newbie in the hobby, horrible stuff happened :()

And now, pretty pictures!

The squad



Watchmaster/Sergeant



Number 2 and his grenade launcher



Number 3 and his flamer (Flamer had some wrapping, easily fixed)



Number 4, this one was a breeze to assemble, the arms fit perfectly and the cable wasn't hard to put.



Number 5, nothing special about this guy.



Number 6, nothing out of the ordinary either



Number 7, struggled to make the arms right, first model I attempted to build, 9th model finished... favorite pose of the bunch



Number 8, second attempt, first success, quite proud of it, filling helped a lot



Number 9, derped this one, never noticed the place where the cable plugs in the gun was blocked by his leg, as such I did my best to fix it with my limited abilities.




Number 10, simply put, a nightmare, I think I restared his right arm about 7-8 times, and I am fairly sure its still not as the right spot... filled way too much resin and glue, now a lot of gel-glue was used as filler. Really sad about how he turned out :(



Overall took about 5-6 hours to finish properly and filled the cracks and empty space with gel glue, every soldier got a knife (even the watchmaster). but since all knifes are in a sheat, I couldn't give them bayonets like I originally wanted.

Watchmaster got a different pose than the on of ForgeWorld, and frankly I like my version more

Did some work on the squad, quite happy of what I've done so far, needs a lot of work still. Primed black. Armor plates/pauldrons/leg guards, helmets, gauntlets and tubes are painted in adeptus battlegrey (too bright for my taste, will wash with badadb black mixed with chaos black) 2 coats, metallics are done with boltgun metal washed with badad black (knifes handle weren't washed, 1 coat of each, the scopes, handguard and stock are a single coat of chaos black, so are the power packs. Chainsword ''blade'' is chaos with boltgun metal for paint scraps, the teeth of the chainsword are just boltgun metal.











Comment away gents, and if anyone got a tip for better pictures, I'll gladly take them.

DING!

New update, a bit late, I was busy being sick.


Whole squad got their gasmask, skullface, boots, knife sheats and other leather part painted.


A bit of a bad work on the right eye, will fix once everything is painted.


Much better work on this one IMO


Here be the boots and knife sheat.

Parents paid for it for Christmas, so expected a new squad next year

Thanks for the nice comment, I'd say they aren't too bad for my first models, certainly not as tricky as expect and great fun to work on, but starting with DKoK Grenadier was perhaps not the best choice (cables, I am looking at you)

Ding dong the update is done.

Painted the coat codex grey, drybrushed with fortress grey. Also did the air tank and tube, the tube was done with very watered down catachan brown, you can see a bit of the black primer, really gives a a great effect imo.

Lots of parts to rework now and I still don't know how I'll do the flamer/extra grenades/extra promethium tank/chainsword handle.

Mighty freaking bumpmancy of doom!!!

I haven't stopped working on my Grenadiers, however, this is the only squad I have and I don't really want to finish it too early, as I won't have anything else to wrok on afterwards :(

So for every soldier: Washed the dhened stone boots with devlan mud (that thing smells!), redid the skull masks: painted them white, then washed them with badab black then did a technique which name I forgot, but in a nutshell you paint 4-5 layers of extremely thinned down paint while brushing your brush on some paper to remove a good part of the paint. Redid the tube and the powerpacks, I am going to need flashly lights for the packs, ideas? I have also painted every armor piece with a mix of adeptus battlegrey and chaos black to darken it abit, as well as covering most mistakes. And finally, I've redone a few hotshots that had some paint splashes.




Now this guy... I reworked the flamer canister but it clearly need more work, now my problem is, I don't know what color to paint the flamer with. The ''muzzle'' part will remain like that (primed!, but its pretty), but I am running short of ideas for the body.


Stay tuned, I've ordered a bunch of bitz and I am going to have every man have a water bottle, pouches and grenades, plus a few extra for some.

You seem to have got those cables assembled without any breakages.. nice work! I must have snapped most of mine... the trick for next time that I'll use is water straight from the kettle, makes resin MUCH easier to work with.

Any more updates on progress? thought about basing theme yet?

Keep going soldier, that's an order!

Still waiting for my pieces, I have no idea what to do for the bases yet D:

Didnt broke a cable, but some of them are glued in... awkward places.

And worry not, as soon as I get the bits I'll get them on the soldiers.

Many thanks Spartan. Painted the coat codex grey, drybrushed with fortress grey. Leathery parts are Catachan brown. The armor was adeptus battlegrey on the first pictures, but I added a bit of chaos black in the mix to darken it.

Horrible news everyone: Grenadier #7 arms are unglued, the mini is being hled up by the flimsy power cable, I looked at the other squad members, but it seems they're fine for now.

There was a problem with shipping, first part of the order arrived perfectly fine, still waiting on the second batch, so far I got 2 vox casters and 1 power sword catachan arm, one of the vox and the arm are reserved for the Company Command who's going to be a covnerted Grenadier Watchmaster.

The 2nd batch has around 30 pieces of gear (GW IG stuff, pouches, grenades, canteens, shovel, binoculars).

On other news #7 arms have been fixed and I fixed a small issue on his power pack.

Haven't worked much, first coat of paint on most of the gear, but I messed the glue work a bit, some I'll have to fix that, but with Diablo 3 coming out and many friends buying it, modelling/painting kinda went out of the window


Edit: Forgot to say it but every models has a name, or rather a number, the watchmaster, for example is 5-6-94-1, 1st member/officer of the 94th Grenadiers squad of the 6th Company of the 5th Krieg Siege regiment, everyone will have their obligatory ''5'' on their right shoulder, with the probable exception of 5-6-94-1, since his rank marks are on said right shoulder.

Good news everyone!

Imperial Armoury (shameful plug, I know, but that's where I got my IG parts ) is going to have Death Korps of Krieg bits and models, and so I just might be able to get working on Captain #5601, and MAYBE, a Grenadier melta gunner (big maybe, but this time if I can get him, I'll buy all the extra bits BEFORE painting him)

I take my time because I have 11 models in total (:() so I want to spread my time around.

I have washed the Grenadiers with some Badab black wash, but there's some work to be done on them before I declare them ''done'' and post final picture.

And I need some golden metallics for the Captain.

I really like these, in particular the colours and little changes that make them feel more unique.

Personally I don't think slowness is a problem, unless like me you have another 90 plastic guardsmen staring at you waiting for paint... Why did I pick a camo theme?
