No, it's a kit.

And I've just finished the pilot to go with the tank.
This is actually a szalamandra pilot from Infinity that I've painted to match the tank's scheme.
and I can actually show the cockpit of the tank that I didn't show previously.

More terrain this time.

This is "Hide" (formally known as "Shield"), and is a barricade or defensive position for typical (~28mm) wargaming.







This and the above "Crash" are now available to buy in my Etsy shop, check them out if you are interested in that kind of thing.

And another piece of terrain. This time it's for the current League of Extraordinary Riveters terrain contest (check it out if you like terrain); we were tasked with using tubes to create our terrain, so I set about using as many tubes as I could while using up some of the larger pieces from my junk collection.

I give you, "The Refinery?" (question mark is due to me not knowing where the model was going from the start, but used the term "refinery" as inspiration).

Worth a zoom-in.

A couple of miniatures this time:

Another re-paint of an old mini', Tactical Marine number 3.

Just a basic job, but a great improvement over that he has looked like until now.

And this is my first Necron Deathmark.
I wanted to represent the moment of him stepping through the phase/portal from the hidden dimension. I used some clear plastic to create the "pop" or "tear" in dimensional space and then painted his rear dark to show the difference between the hidden and revealed.


Thanks.

I, quite literally, made a thing...

It started as a potential 1:1 oddity, making a cube from small pieces of junk.
But I wasn't pleased with where it went for the application and sidelined it for a while.

Then I had a burst of inspiration and turned it into this... whatever it is...
Many angles to give you a good idea of it's shape:

The new 40K box set is out and I, like many, have picked it up to try out the new models.

My first miniatures from the set are the first squad of Primaris Intercessors.

I chose a paint scheme that would set them apart from any existing chapters and let them stand out from the crowd.
I placed an empty circle in place of a chapter icon to show their lack of allegiance. But it also allows whoever buys them to place their own icon over it to make them belong (the same reason for not adding the squad number).

Hello nareik.

I covered the conversion in my "army" blog https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/471119.page#4673874. which you should check out if you want to see more of what I do and how I do it.

However, what I did is shown in these photos:
Spoiler:

I cut off the legs at the hip to swivel them downwards.
The knees and ankles weren't cut through, but were opened up to straighten the legs.
I also raised the neck to bring the head up a bit.

I use scrap plastic, glued in with poly' cement, to fill the majority of the gap and give a strong join.
then a layer of putty (milliput in my case) to tidy up and blend it all together.
Like so:

I've now finished the second set of models from the Dark Imperium box; The Death Guard Plague marines.
I made a few changes, here and there, to make these unique from every other Dark Imperium set, but still recognisable.
I made the bases to show the grass dying as they walk though it.

The squad:


#1; the grenade guy.
Mostly minor changes; fixes to casting limitations (something done to pretty much all of them, as was adding / improving the damage to their armour), added a 3rd "eye", some smoke for his grenade, and changing the metal tabard for part cloth.

If you look under his rear foot, there is something that looks just like a cigarette butt. Not intended, but it just goes to show how disgusting these guys are; not only are they filthy, disease-ridden, plague carriers, they also smoke and litter with reckless abandon.

#2; the champion.
Quite a few changes; the fly was moved from attached to a horn to sitting on his shoulder, the things dangling from his hood were removed and many tentacles added, and his arm was reposed.


#3; "there goes the hernia" guy.
Repositioned the gun arm to be aiming, changed the tentacle / tongue from the belly to spilling flesh and removed the teeth from the armour break, changed the smiling face on the left shoulder to a skull, and added some tentacles.


#4; bell guy.
Reposed the sword arm, added a tentacle and swapped backpack to make him less bell orientated.


#5; plasma guy.
Added plasma flame, swapped backpack, moved sword, and added tentacles.


#6; Spiky dave.
Changed tongue from shoulder pad mouth, changed tentacle on left leg, added tentacle with bell to backpack, moved sword to stick through (new) hole in cloak, and changed horns on helmet for spikes.


#7; Smokey pete.
Moved a few minor things, and added smoke.


Thanks.

And I've finally finished my first HQ miniature for my (mad) army.
Re-built from a dead/dying, captured or found Tau commander. The (Mad) Scientist has repaired and "improved" the suit, as well as brain-washing the occupant.

While generally looked after, and re-painted from what it may have originally looked like, it does take occasional knocks in battle. So, dirt and chipped paint, but no rust.

While carrying some Tau tech', the suit also carries a Bright lance and a signal broadcaster (works similar to the Tyranid synapse thing, for The Army). Rules to be ironed out in time.

Other ideas explored here were to make the body larger so that it actually looks like it can house a body, and incorporating the jet pack into the body.

Mostly in cardboard, in spite of this tread's title, this is a scratch-built "mech" workshop. Designed for the near-future Infinity ttg aesthetic; hexagons and bright colours.

The inside is heavily detailed as you would a diorama, however the outside is built for gaming and should fit in with any other terrain and gaming mat/table arrangement.
The roof and walls are removable from the base and interior, for access, a better view, or to make the interior suitable for gaming use (without the details getting in the way).
There's also a set of scatter pieces that can be placed about the roof or around the building for a variety of cover situations in-game.

This has been a long ongoing project, constantly being put aside for more time-dependant projects. So show it some love.

Outside overview:

And here we have a set of Intercessor Space Marines.
Squad B from the DI box set.
I swapped some bits about (including legs) to give them all a little uniqueness as the vanilla set of miniatures comes with 2 pairs of identical marines.

They were then painted as an early, emergency squad for the introduction of the Intercessors. Hastily brought together from the various chapters.
While they keep their chapter colours, their chapter markings are covered to show that they are not affiliated with any chapter at this time.
Brought together under extreme circumstances.
They are the last, best hope for all humanity.
Each with his own special skill set.
Together they form a force greater than the sum of the individual parts.
As different as they are, they work together against a common foe.

Group shot:


#1 "Air" the Raven Guard.


#2 "Earth" the Imperial Fist.


#3 "Fire" the Salamander.


#4 "Water" the Ultramarine.


#5 "the Fifth element" the Blood Angel.


and to finish the "Hero shot"


Thanks.
