Squad cars all looking good.

Just tempted - or have you already started?

If you're using DKOK could you slip in some bikes as rough riders?

No Hellhound yet, but give me time...

As for bikes, I think Arbites as DKK and bikes as horses might be a Rep too far.

Fortunately this is something that exists...

Good point, well made

I was just daydreaming about CHiPs after seeing the motor pool.

Well this is a little embarassing. With last week's order of Empire Outriders I'd acquired everything I needed for the Thin Blue Line.

I had close to 50 metal judges ready to to surge forward, several squads of Gendarmerie to sit in the bunkers in the rear etc.

The problem with OOP or conversion armies is you never know when you'll get a chance to get models and when you do you feel you have to try.

So while I certainly never planned to win this action...



Yet here I am.

Costy, but it comes out to less than $5 a model.

So I can now add 9 power maul dudes as crusaders (once I figure out shields for them), a 10 man bolter squad, maybe convert a flamer/shotgun squad...

And still have a few to sell or hoard.

Now all I need is time.

Meanwhile on the painting table...





ALMOST ready to take the field.

Almost.

The grand total of 3 models with 1 pose make for a great parade formation.

This wouldn't near as good with Mordians or another metal army.

So the Bandai Yamato kits got some work done.



Counts as Victory Class Battleship (nova cannon and lances). Not sure about the lances on the side... Might chop them back off. Like how the eagles fit though.



Chaos Despoiler class. ISD bridge to change the lines a bit.

I always like the Empire outriders, a great kit filled with cool bits.

To this I added an Empire General, another completely insane kit I love.

Still need to add all sorts of grubbings to make them a bit more grimdark.

My friends, the question should not be, can we make a Hellhound and paint it like a fire truck.

No.

The question should be, how can we not make a Hellhound and paint it like a fire truck.



F-451 Squads are a vital part of any Arbites Precinct charged with locating and incinerating proscribed texts, and when necessary, their owners. Teams of Firemen are carefully selected for both their inability to read the written word, and their disinterest in learning how to do so.



Left over bits from my Centaurs and bunkers, a bits order for the lower hull and tracks, and one Diet Coke bottle cap.

Now I need to make a 6 man flamer team.

Literature + Imagination + Warhammer = GREATNESS! You're really carrying this theme out to full completion!

The Hellhound got a ram bar tonight.



And I got around to opening this box from Ebay.



33 more judges! This certainly sparks joy.

Verily, a judicious juggernaut of judgmental jagged-out judges. What a great eBay find!

Something I've been working on for a bit, protest pamphlets to scatter onto my Arbites bases, as if they'd just broken up a protest/riot.

Smaller than the posters with very limited text and images.



All in one sheet with 400 pamphlets.

Some full sized examples.

Nailed it.

The real army is blue ivory and brass, but the Hell Hound and Flamer team get to be firemen.

Thinking of making a... Banewolf? Is that the toxic one? As an Ambulance.

Well it’s a good thing that it’s AOS now and they are no longer Horses but are now Hworyseas or sum such thing . I still have 4-5 copies of all the battlemaster horses like those to paint up . At least mine are in yellow and blue if I remember correctly.

Nice work on the bronze coloring .
