Hiya

I've actually done some more work on this army again!

Here is my 3rd Platoons HQ



Here we can see my standard medic build, check the RTB01 knife.



Cool sarge guy..



Junior officer No.3, he's got a RTB01 powerfist like the other (2nd Platoon) officer. The torso is a Valkyrie one to keep up the 'all officers in breatplates' theme and theres GS all over the place to make all the bits fit nicely.



Flamer and Melta, pretty standard, added goggles onto Melta gunner to differentiate this one from the same model in 2nd Platoon HQ (which this unit is equipped the same as).

I hope to get these guys and my new Chimera (pics to follow) done by Weds (massively optimistic) as I plan to have a big game then which I want to do a batrep for....

See y'all soon!

Yeah the SM HK looks a lot like a real TOW misslile on a comteporary APC, the IG one like a rocket on a stick...

Updates

Here's the unit 60% painted, basecoat and black ink wash, sepia for the flesh.





Getting there I should be able to finish them today, I also want to work on my new Chimera, I'll upload some pics of it built in a bit.

Here is my new aquisition, my HQ's Chimera, it will be called 'Argo'. It's the new version of the kit.



Slimmer than the old version for easier parking...old style smoke launcher as they are cooler..



As it's the GT version, there's all the Stubber ammo you could eat..



Extended Flamer ammo too..



Picnic blanket, this is actually from a FoW kit but I think it works...



Satellite uplink for all the major sporting events...the mount for this is a FoW turret ring..

I'll add some painted pics soon too, let me know what you think..

Some paint on it now...



Went for a cleaner look than the Vet's Chimera, it is the HQ's after all....





I hope to do more tonight and tomorrow, maybe even finish it, I'll hopefully have a 4k SM/IG vs Nids tomorrow and will try to photo and do a BatRep...

Finished!







Duty and Honour, the regiments motto.



Tyrannic war battle honour won by the regiment.



DANGER flammable!



Stubber gunner.

The general finish is cleaner and much less damaged to contrast with the Vets' heavily knackered and modified one. I might go back and do some more minor detailing, I'm also tempted to do a penant....

Well I'm off to play a game, let me know what you think.

Here's the last of my Russ Squadron:



The Dauntless.





This one actually has sponsons and made his debut in the above BattRep. As a member of the 'Grim Reapers' (my Russ squadron) he has a mural to link him in.



Some Imperial Guard rock fans humour..



Unit name and insignia, all in keeping with it's 2 brothers, I'll post a family picture or 2 later.

I'm working on a converted Commissar too (it's slightly visible in pic 1 above), I've got some WiP pics for him so I'll stick them up soon.

See ya later crocodile

Thanks a lot dudes.

Here as promised the Grim Reapers in squadron formation:





They are patrolling the great plateau of Ironingboardus after recent reports of strange xenos robots operating in the area.





Line astern, I'll try to do some more pics at 'Cut and Thrust' next time I'm there for a game as I'll be able to get better lit shots on nicely painted terrain..

I'm still greenstuffing my Commissar so I'll put some pics of him up soon, and I've pretty much finished building my next Sentinal too....

I'm giving my WHA HYW army a break ( link for the interested, I've only got one 28mm guy doen so far the rest is all 22mm ish) so will hopefully get to spend some time with my grunts..

C&C welcome!

Thanks as always Cosmic, you're marines are looking awesome, I love the painting on the guardsman too even though the green and orange is too bright for my tastes!

Thanks too Spoonpoodle, I'm honoured to have your 1st post!



I decided to add a logo to the 'bumper' of the Dauntless, just because..



Here is the plan of the Commissar I am converting, the bluetack is being his cap and high collar as per the other Commissar, the BP will have a strap I think...



Here we see him basically held together prior to any real sculpting. His torso and arms have been spaced slightly to increase his stature. Most parts are basic guard items but the head is from the 'Masters of the Universe I mean Chapter' set. I've shaved off the shoulder pads and chest logo.

Will post more soon!

Thanks, Randy. Yes, the guardsman is rather fluorescent!

I'm very interested to see how your Commissar comes along. Almost a kind of Commissar Yarrick (spelling?) head. Have fun mate!

Flourescent yes, awesomely excuted yes, now just paint another hundred like that........





Next stages of GS'ing, the belt over the torso is quite thick to hide the spacing, added a skull belt buckle to up the skull count. Covered up the removed chest aquila with a VC medal. The strips under the belt are the pocket tops of his flasher's mac, as per the other commissar model. I added a sleave cuff to match the other arm.

On to add the cap and a few other minor details...in 2 minds about the shoulder strap and BP what do you all think?

awsome army i love the theme, and i think its great to see pdf for the ultramarine homesystem its such a cool idea .

i was wondering if you have considered making an ultramarine in power armour with the correct weapons to represent col. straken. he has stats that imho represent a movie marine quite well

oh and subscried

Thanks!

That's an interesting idea, I hadn't planned anything like that and I generally don't use SC but I do like the idea. I have the Rogue Trader era Inquisitor in terminator armour who I am planning to add to this army as either a Commissar Lord in normal games or a Ordos Xenos guy in APOC but he would work as Strakan too! Otherwise I could use an existing marine HQ or Vet sarg maybe..





More Commy work. I've added the giant grimdark cap, didn't manage to get the tiny logos to fit on it that well however. Some other bits of tidying up work too, still can't decide whether to add the bolt pistol or not....

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

This is very nice. I think the blue/gray/white scheme works really well and actually think that putting blue on both shoulders would look strange.

Its awesome what simple repositioning and small extra details does to making an army unique. The heavy wpns teams look great. I also like the idea of using gold only on the officers. makes a big difference.

Good work!

Somewhere amid the mental pathways of my mind.

Your army is looking great! Excellent freehand on the armored units, and your Commisar is turning out well. Will be watching this closely...

I was reading the IG Codex idly in the bath and noticed: "Armed with the lasgun, the Guardsman forms the very backbone of the Imperium" (paraphrased) which is what I like about the IG. "Armed with the meltagun, the Chimera mounted Veteran forms the very backbone of the Imperium" seems less heroic somehow......


Thanks a lot guys, it's really inspiring to get comments.
I've started adding the strapped BP (I decided to go with it) and hope to finish it tomorrow before work, I'll try to do pics Mon or Tues. In the meantime;

Hiya, thanks again.



First stage of strapping..Added tiny parts of shirt/cravat peeping out at collar too. I used the straps off of the standard flamers as thry are plentiful and quite effective. Making straps from scratch out of GS can be a bit of a ballache..



Strapping complete!, I'll tidy up the contact points to the pistol once the GS has gone off. I added a buckle too.



Here he is next to his colleague. I need to do some minor trimming but otherwise he's pretty much built, now all I have to do is paint him................bah..
