Very impressive conversion work here! Cassius looks great, and that short bolter design is lovely. Might have to borrow it at some point

What? More Space Marines?

Plowing along with WiPs. The Assault Marines for Deathwatch Overkill, as well as redoing a flamer Marine for Space Hulk.

Model Count Left:
DW:O "Dark Angel"

BSF: Spindle Drone x3
BSF: "Chaos Marine"
Genestealer Patriarch

Getting close.

Nearly finished with the assembly phase. Decided plasma pistols are boring and I had a spare Volkite weapon. Since everything in Deathwatch Overkill is abstracted anyway, he became the "Dark Angel" just with a roman style Mainz pattern gladius/spatha like the rest of my troops.

Deathwatch: Overkill models are on 32mm bases. I left the Space Hulk Only models on 25mm since that will make it easier to fit them in the Space Hulk squares.



"Lefty" officially becomes the proxy for the Chainfist in Space Hulk with his handy Lascutter by his side.




Just a handful of models on the Hostiles side to do now. Been putting off the Spindle Drones, haha. The first one was so fiddly. Letting him fully cure before I clean up all the thumb prints and stuff.

Had to take a long break, but now I'm back on the paint table, finishing the models for Space Hulk/Deathwatch Overkill/Blackstone Fortress. I've finally finished all the models, so no excuse to not paint them.



Also, since we are restarting our Heroes of Aturi Cluster campaign, I got some 3D Printed scale-corrected A-Wings because I didn't like how massive the FFG A-Wing was. I had also always wanted to paint some Green Squadron ones based on the old Micro Machines toy I've had for like 25 years. So this solved both problems.

Fairly pleased with the final product. So tiny, lol.

Slapped a magnet on it so it can zoom around with the rest of them. I know magnets are fairly common for X-Wing these days, but I have my OG tutorial here if you're considering it and want to know how. It's extremely easy, and cheap.

Finished the second Tiny A-Wing, so the one above has a wingman now.

I'm slowly plodding through painting the Space Hulk/Blackstone Fortress miniatures, but of course, new projects.

I'm in the process of writing a full length one shot adventure for the Alien RPG/Aliens Adventure Game/Mothership for eventual publication, but I need miniatures, because, I dunno, I need miniatures. Oh, also, my Aliens and Colonial Marine minis are going to pull double-duty for the Nemesis boardgame too. Minis are Prodos AvP, with Mantic GCPS soldiers from Star Saga recruited to play the Sino/Neo-Soviet UPP soldiers if needed. Was happy the scales matched up pretty good since the Prodos Marines are a pretty rare 32mm True Scale.



Also, more historicals. But I also love Legend of the Five Rings, so, how about a historical/fantasy double feature? Six warbands, about 100 models total, so I can run mini campaigns of Ronin/Daisho/Test of Honour/Bushi no Yume. Lion, Crab, Crane, Scorpion, Bandits, and Shadowlands. Possible some Unicorn eventually. Mix of old Clan War metals, Warlord plastics, and Kensei metals, and some randos from other ranges. The goblin (bakemono) is a Deep Cuts Pathfinder goblin.

And the Colonial Marines to fight my Aliens. I broke down and bought Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps, but I don't like GF9's models so I'll probably Ebay them and stick with the Prodos figs.

A couple pose fixes (far left and middle models), some added pouches and details.
