As promised! Models!

First off my Van Saar to Arbites conversions, a simple head swap with Skitarii Vanguards.





(counting as Tempestus if I ever use them)

Really happy how they turned out can't wait to put some paint on.

Of course Arbites alone don't patrol the streets, the bulk of that duty falls to the endless ranks of the poorly equipped, poorly motivated and no doubt corrupt Planetary Security forces. But still, someone has to check out the screams coming from that deconsecrated temple right?



Rules wise they're IG conscripts which of course means I need 30 of them



Simple kitbash, Empire handgunners, IG heads and the long flintlock pistols from Empire Pistolliers. I like the scrawny Empire bodies, they manage to look good and hopeless.

Ambulance is a cheap Chinese toy that IMHO has the right boxy shape for low-end Imperial truck.

Those heads work really well with the van Saar bodies, especially like the spiked helmet that echoes the old Captain model.

Your space precinct is coming along nicely; just needs some low budget aliens.

With only 10 (OK 11) or them I can't ran them as Conscripts so I'm thinking of giving them 3 flamers and running them as vets.

Or I could mix in metal catachans...

Hrm.

A quick WIP and tour of the Arbites Precinct



left to right - A Plan/Sec (Planetary Security) officer armed with a crude slug thrower. Counts as an IG conscript (yes I made 30 of them) he's one of the faceless thousands who patrol the streets hoping they find nothing tougher than a 13 year old with a spray can.
Gendarmerie Trooper - A local seconded from the PDF armed and trained to IG standards, they do the security and other jobs full Judges are not needed for.
Sit/Res (Situation Response) Judge - His squad responds to sudden situations, IE riots and protests with swift lethal force.
Com/Rel (Community Relations) Judge - Specialists in intimidation and shock, they descend on businesses, parks, hab units, basically anywhere and search everyone. They embody the philosophy that 'everyone is guilty, the only question is the degree'.
Tar/Strike (Targeted Strike) Judge - When an investigation identifies a target (or targets) a Tar/Strike team is airlifted to deal with it.

And some senior judges



More to come...

Look.

No one is saying I'm going to buy this to make into an Abribtes precinct house OK?



It's just that no one is saying I won't buy this to make into an Arbites Precinct House.

https://www.michaels.com/artminds-wood-castle-dollhouse/10166605.html

That's all I'm saying. Or not saying.

And no. I did not notice that this was less than half the price of the 2 bastions I was originally going to use. I didn't notice that at all.

https://www.michaels.com/artminds-wooden-birdhouse-castle/10449620.html#q=castle&start=1

Or the $5 bastions on the same page.

well...seeing the interior shot...i´m with you... but that small tower...get yourself a piece of styrofaom and carve in what details you like...and you´re set...

I actually have a few of the small towers, they're great, just knock off the top tower and you can fit a 10 man squad. Easily worth the $5 to have something sturdy that i don't have to carve.

I'd probably gut the castle and use it as a case for the army...

If I were to do it of course.

Not yet but i am thinking of ways to convince Mrs Kyoto how much fun it will be to make a dolls house with Kyoto Secunda and her clone sister Kyoto Secunda Prime.

We could do it during Christmas break!

The other option is 2xBastion kits, like this only square.



Which will probably look better but cost twice as much and be a lot less sturdy...

Giving it a thunk until the 'oh boy oh boy' fever passes.

OK self, if you do well on your test Tuesday you can buy two bastions to celebrate.
And if you do poorly you can buy two bastions to cheer yourself up.

Some WIP



The Pile



Some senior Judge kit bashes, probably count as Tempestor Prime and Commissar



Generic Chimera, damn that heavy stubber was a pain, I'll probably do any more buttoned down with a coaxil stubber.



And the future chief justice for the precinct.
