You mean this one?

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/heresylab2/heresylab-the-sauberung-punisher-squad-miniatures?ref=545057&token=adac1879

There's several options out now including Mad Robot's Space Police and of course the ever handy 'stick a skitarii head on a Tempustus' plan. So maybe the time has come for my Arbites army...

As for the ebay lot, I hope he's not resin, that would mean it's a recast. I guess I'll see in a few days.

I also find it inspirational to watch a movie while painting ... Here are my District 9 : MNU - inspired Kasrkin





I have to admit the music to the movie really helps too; the first couple of RoboCop movies features a score written by Basil Poledouris,
who also wrote the score to "Starship Troopers" amongst many classic, iconic movies such as Conan (1982) featuring a young Arnold ...

I could never watch a movie while painting, I'd just get distracted! Music matching the theme of what I'm painting is the way to go for me.

My Thin Blue Line is getting a bit thicker thanks to a lucky ebay find.



Fluff - The Blue and Whites are a Com/Rel team, dedicated to ensure proper community relations between the Arbites and the public. Which in 40k means showing up in random places, searching everyone and everything and hauling off a good portion of the population as a message to the rest. Everyone is guilty, the question is how guilty. The colors are chosen for high visibility and intimidation.

The Black and Whites however are a Tar/Ex team, sent after a specific target sentenced to execution. They're more dedicated to stealth and firepower.

So I'm trying to turn the new Van Saar into Arbites.

Halfway through model #1 and I already hate this kit. A separate neck bit? Really? AND it's not compatible with any other GW heads? Gun arms in 3 pieces, including 2 halves of the rifle, all of which much line up perfectly?



Does GW hate conversions that much?

The models look great, and with enough green stuff and filing anything can fit anything, but still, this is needlessly frustrating.

That sucks about the heads. The cawdor heads are pretty swappable.

Yeah it makes no sense at all, I can make the skitarii heads work by putting a ball of green stuff, it's just another hassle.

Plus the bits take up sprue space.

Oh did I mention that the instructions don't tell what gun is what? There's like 3 kinds of lasgun and nothing to tell me what is what.

I hate this kit so much, most of all for being almost great, but then @#$%ing it up.

I haven't really sat down to examine that kit yet, I had high hopes for some of the bits from it, but that does sound a bit nasty with the neck pieces.

Looking at that gun arm it looks like easy weapon swaps are also out?

Head swaps are doable with green stuff but the collars make it hard to mount helmeted heads.

Rifle swaps will be really hard, left hands are molded to the guns and they'd have to be cut away from the arms. The arms are on ball joints, which I like, but fitting any other GW arm will take filing, GS and probably not look too good. There are some one armed guns that might work for weapon swaps.

Another issue is that N17 went with the idea that every house has its own weapon style so none of the guns looks like any other Imperial weapon. Orlock and Goliath style is pretty close to the boxy Imperial guns we know and love but Van Saar is more anime/Infinity/bullpup looking.

All the better to sell you FW weapon packs I suppose?

I'm still on the first 5 models which I'd doing stock (except for the heads), I'll play around with the next 5 and have a better idea of what is possible.

Bit of a pallet cleaning exercise last night, raided the bitz box to make a squad of Gendarmerie to supplement the Arbites. These are normal planetary security who man check points, patrol the streets and investigate normal crimes that don't yet rise to the AA's level.

Cadian/Catachan/Empire bitz mostly.







And 2 penal legion troopers armed with crude slug throwers and a very limited supply of ammo. They'll get some mix of grey and orange rags.



Huh just noticed I have 5000 images in the gallery. Some of which are actually painted and based!

Where are those non-cadian helmets from? They work particularly well for these guys I think.

Always sensible to keep a stockpile of spare organs.

But I'm also not saying saying I won't buy this storage container to make an IG troop shuttle.

It's a thought certainly but really the only way it would be practical would be if someone was selling some Valkyrie engines and wings and I then won the ebay auction.

HEY! If I order from these 3 bitz sites and win that auction I can make a 30 man squad of Empire-IG to count as conscripts!

As for the Valkyrie bitz, figure one of these:
